So Choix | November 2016

I’m really thinking this subscription box may be my new favorite! I just love getting 5 designer samples (that I choose) for only $15 a month! I love how everything is packaged. It’s the perfect subscription box for those who love trying out new products but don’t feel like going to stores, like Sephora, to try out. You can try them out at your leisure throughout the month…extremely convenient and I appreciate convenience.


As you all know, I have been on a mission to find the perfect illuminator, so I added 3 to my box this month, plus a mascara and a lipstick. Let’s see what I received and what I thought about everything.

Laura Mercier Mineral Illuminating Powder in LM Candlelight, $35.00

I wasn’t able to really try this product out the way I wanted to because the jar they put this is was a little on the small side. The jar was big enough to fit a shadow brush in, but not a blending brush. From the little bit I was able to get on my brush, I swiped on my hand and noticed a nice little glowy shimmer. I’m not sure if I would buy this because I’m more a fan of liquid illuminators over powder illuminators. I actually like to limit the amount of powders I put on my skin since my skin is more on the dry side.

Burberry Cat Lashes Mascara in 01 Jet Black, $29.00

It’s really hard to review this product. I was expecting to receive a sample brush like the one that comes with the actual mascara. Instead, I received a regular mascara brush. So, I am unable to say whether or not this really gives the cat eye effect. If this had the actual brush, lashes are supposed to be extended and fanned out.

Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstcik in Velvet Oxblood, $34.00

I thought this shade would be darker, but either way, I really like the color. It’s a deep berry and perfect for fall. The formula is also very smooth and moisturizing. I don’t think it’s worth the $34 price tag, but I guess I’d be paying for the name and the packaging if I actually chose to purchase this in the full size. 

Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow, $49.00

I considered buying this a few weeks ago when Sephora had their VIB sale. I decided against it because the sales associate recommended another product. I saw that I could get a sample of this from So Choix, so I decided to get it. I really love the glow I get from this. It’s a very healthy, dewy glow. This illuminator is also a moisturizer, so you do not have to moisturize your skin prior to application. My skin feels very hydrated once applied. The nude glow is a universal shade and it works on all skin tones and skin types.

Givenchy Mister Radiant Healthy Glow, $41.00

The name of this product is spot on! You truly get a healthy glow with it! It is a transparent gel that contains a high water content and soft beads of glowing color that sink into your skin to achieve a natural, sunlit effect. After application, my skin feels very smooth and soft. Also, this product has a light floral scent.


Have  you tried any of these products? If so, what were your thoughts?

So Choix Subscription Box Review | October 2016

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!
