I had never heard of So Choix until a couple of weeks ago when I was scrolling through the WordPress reader and saw a fellow blogger’s post about it. I immediately fell in love with the concept because you are able to select the samples you would like to receive each month. I also like that the samples are from designer brands such as Tom Ford, NARS, Gucci, etc. These brands are normally not featured in other beauty subscriptions. Another positive is how each sample is packaged. They are placed in the appropriate applicators by hand and sent straight to your front door. You receive enough of the product to really get in there and try it out and see if it’s a good fit for you. You get all of this for $15 a month! I think it’s totally worth it because now I’ll be able to try out products from brands I wouldn’t normally try out.
Alright, let’s see what products I received!
I really like how the samples come in the cute applicators! For the ones that are in the pans, they included a lip brush and shadow brush to apply those! I also appreciate the list of samples included in my box because I forgot what I chose! Lol!
Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eyeshadow – All Spice, $33.00
This eyeshadow is so beautiful in the pan! It’s a rich brown shade with golden glitter. I have gotten spoiled to ColourPop’s soft super shock shadows, so I was surprised when I went to apply this shadow and it crumbled. I also expected the color to be a little more vibrant. I had to apply several swipes to get this swatch on my hand. I definitely will not purchase this full size product.
Giorgio Armani ‘Rouge Ecstasy’ Lipstick – 402 Teatro, $37.00
Don’t mind my brows! LOL!
Let’s talk about this red lipstick! OMG! I am in L-O-V-E! This true red shade looks amazing on me! It’s so smooth and moisturizing on your lips! I am going to see how it wears for an extended period of time before I purchase the full size product. But, right now, I think I will be shelling out the $37.00 for this lipstick!
YSL ‘Gloss Volupte’ Lip Gloss – 104 Prune Organdi, $32.00
This lip gloss is quite amazing! It is a lightweight, non-sticky lip gloss. You can’t tell from the picture, but the shade is a sheer deep purpler with golden specks in it. As much as I love this gloss, I highly doubt I’ll be paying $32 for the full size!
NARS Velvet Lip Glide – Toy, $26.00
I really loved this shade! As you can see it’s a brownish purple shade, which is really beautiful on my complexion! The formula glides on smoothly and has a very glossy finish, even though the product description says it’s semi matte. It is also slightly sticky, but not too sticky where it is unwearable. I can’t say whether or not I will pay the $26 for the full size product. But, I will wear this sample until I run out! LOL!
Chanel Illuminating Makeup Base, $48.00
I really cannot say a lot about this product since I only applied it to my hand for this photo. I did notice that it felt very moisturizing when I rubbed it in. Hopefully, I will be able to give this product a full review soon!
