Hello my dolls!
This week has been busy busy and I’m doing my best to schedule posts in advanced.. I’m so eager to start my Halloween Series next month, I’ve been trying to work really hard on that so I hope you like the looks I create. Let’s unbox this box! 🙂
Theme: Next-Gen Beauty
So the box design is new and so is the bag. I don’t know if they’re trying something new for a bit or completely ditching the cotton bags, but I actually liked this bag better than the cotton ones. It actually zips and I love that it’s 100% recyclable. 🙂
- Ole Henriksen Truth Serum
- Clinique Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly
- TooFaced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer
- Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation SPF25 in Light
- Sephora Collection LashCraft Big Volume Mascara in Black
- Tom Ford Black Orchid Perfume Sample (This Month’s Bonus)
I’m so tired of getting products from the Sephora Collection. And mascaras no less. I feel like I get these nearly every month. I have more than enough to last me almost two years lmao. I know they have to push their brand somehow but still…I know they have a ton more brands in there that we either haven’t seen or rarely make an appearance in these boxes.
Clinique makes really good skincare products so I’m excited to try the hydrating jelly, which might come in handy for winter? Otherwise I’ll save it for summer next year.
I hear a lot of hype around Ole Henriksen and being that this is a serum, I’m really hoping I like it. Serums are some of my fave skincare products because they have improved and benefited my skin in many ways.
Two products that are new to me are the TooFaced face primer and the Marc Jacobs Shameless foundation. I know people love the face primer so I hope it works out well for me. As for the foundation, I usually skip out on these because they never send me the right shade, but this one might come in handy for one of my Halloween looks, lol.
Lastly, the perfume sample.. I like it, not going to lie, that’s very rare.. I LOVE that it’s floral and has bergamot BUT it’s too strong for me which makes me incredibly sad. Alex sprayed a bit and it immediately gave me a headache. And since he didn’t bother to take it out of the packaging, it’s been sitting on my vanity and I’m currently working on this post and I can freaking smell it!! ALL DAYY!! So yeah, it’s very long lasting. If you like it, you might like the fact that it truly lasts LOL.
Why I’m Canceling
As for why I’m cancelling…
I’ve just gotten increasingly bored with this subscription. Yes it’s cheap, but the products are still very small samples. And they are crowding my vanity. The ones I like don’t even last and the full size costs an arm and a leg.
But getting back to my point, I’m no longer excited to get this box like I once was. I feel like ever since I subscribed to Boxycharm, I like Boxycharm more because it’s only $11 USD more and I get FULL-SIZE EVERYTHING!
Another reason is that I have been constantly getting the same brands, it’s Sephora Collection, MUFE, Clinique and a few others that I see constantly and I just want to try something new. Boxycharm on the other hand is perfect because I have been introduced to so many new brands (to me).
I’m sure I will miss it next month but I’m happy to put all my focus into reviewing the items that I will be getting from only ONE box. That makes me feel excited because I will be able post other content that usually takes a back seat to my subscription posts.
I wrote A Year of Play! by Sephora a few months back and also shared my thoughts on the subscription if any of you would like to check that out.
So what did you guys get in your box?
Are you still subscribed?
