As a former TV personality, movie extra and current blogger, boy am I addicted to beauty products and skin care! I think I have a real problem. On top of my sponsors sending me amazing cosmetics, greedily shopping at ULTA and Sephora, I am also subscribed to various beauty boxes that are delivered straight to my door. It’s getting a bit overwhelming and I feel like a hoarder…
Anyway, for today, let’s open up August’s “Life of the Party” Boxy Charm. A box that fits inside my mailbox, surprisingly featuring only full-size products for a total of $19.00, good things do come in small packages…
Laura Lee Los Angeles Party Animal Eyeshadow Palette
These colors are bright! Dare to be the life of the party with these 6 stunning shades. Create bold, colorful looks that leave you ready for a night of fun! As these are way too bright for me, being middle-aged, I am gifting this palette to my 23-year old daughter, Lauren. It’s perfect for all the festivals, concerts, parties and other events she goes to.
Wander Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks
After a night of partying, who doesn’t love a good eye mask? These gold foil undereye masks brighten, hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark circles. The hyaluronic acid diminishes the appearance of wrinkles while aloe leaf extracts and lavender oil cool and soothe your undereye area. Wander-ful!
House of Lashes Eyelashes
These are different—they’re not as long and spidery-looking as most fake eyelashes. Cruelty-free, high-quality, and long-lasting, these lashes provide up to 15 wears and will be the talk of every party. I just might have the patience to try these on!
Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick
In the deep nude color of Psychic Medium, this is an 8-hour power pout! This pigment-loaded color glides on in just one swipe, getting you out the door and into the party quicker. You might not get this dark shade if you order as they are shipping out different colors.
Adesse Sweet Almond Cuticle Oil
This literally comes in handy, lol. Treat yourself, your nails, and your cuticles after a night out. This lightweight, non-greasy oil is formulated with vitamin E, shea, sweet almond and jojoba oils that are blended together to create a luxurious treatment that softens your cuticles and moisturizes and hydrates your nails.
Bang Beauty Chocolate Gel Eyeliner
Use this as an eyeliner, eyeshadow base, or even to touch-up your brows. This creamy pomade is the ultimate triple threat to keep you looking good.
The Bottom Line
All said, I feel that these 6 different and fun full-size products are worth the $19 I spent. I am looking forward to receiving next month’s shipment.
