May 2016 Birchbox and Review

IMG_20160517_124438 (1).jpg

Hello Beauties,

It’s that Awesome! time of the month.  My Birchbox has arrived, this month I was pretty excited about my products.  I did not choose the curated box this month and let Birchbox just pick my products.  So here they are:

COOLA Daydream SPF 30 Mineral Makeup Primer- Full size, $42.oo

I do like COOLA products and have tried them before, so when I get it in my box I’m very pleased since they are very pricey.  The only down thing about this product was that there was not lots of product in the little deluxe sample.  When I hold it up to the light I was able to see a tiny bit in there.  The primer works great and it’s super silky and soft.  Plus it has SPF.

Matrix Oil Wonders Volume Rose Plumping Mousse- Full size, $20.00

This product smells like roses but not too over powering and it’s suppose to help fine hair with volume.  I have used it a few times and I really like it.  I would purchase this hair product since it is a higher end hair product.

BONUS! Shampoo and Conditioner

These are foil packets but I don’t mind because you  get to review them for 10 points each.  I was able to get two uses out of these. They smell like roses and left a light scent on my hair. Full sizes, $18.00

MDSolarSciences Mineral Moisture Defense SPF 50 for Body- Full size, $39.00

This sample has no scent to it and very lightweight.  It has a very high SPF but it’s very expensive. I will use this product but it’s something I will not purchase.

MODELCO Lip Lacquer-Morocco-Full size Trio, $16.00

This is a nude lip gloss and it’s very nice but I really don’t need another lip gloss so I will pass this one to my sister.

RealChemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel for Body-Full size, $34.00

Now this product I LOVED!!! I didn’t expect this would work since I already use a sugar scrub every other week and I like it.  Then I tried this and it was AMAZING I was able to use it on my arms and shoulders.  It comes in a gel form with very fine grains.  I used it in the shower and it left my skin super soft.  I’m debating if this will be my next purchase with my points.

Hello Beauties 👋
So I stopped at Dollar General this morning and of course I head to the makeup aisle 😍.  I saw these product and thought “Cute”.  Now I have seen this brand before but never have tried them before. 2/$1.00 “What a steal” I picked up 6 eyeshadows and 2 lipglosses. So lets get to the point.

Teal Steel 0.12 OZ
This is a very beautiful teal color very soft and pigmented.

Reminds me of a mermaid.

Wine Shimmer 0.12 OZ
This color is a deep wine matte color.

It’s still a very nice dark rich color.

Blue Mermaid 0.12 OZ

image

Nude Shimmer 0.12 OZ

image

A great highlight color this was just a bit chalky but very pigmented.

I did pick up two lipglosses one in Nude and the other one in red.

There was a pink color also, these lipglosses are sheer but have lots of color.
Overall not what I expected from cheaper makeup.  Very impressed with these product and the quality.
For this price they are affordable and very worth trying out.  So check your local Dollar General and pick these up and let me know how you like them.  Thanks for stopping in 💛.
