Hey Beauty and Subscription Box Lovers! These are the subscription box products I received and tested this week. These are my honest opinions and suggestions. I have linked where you can buy the products if you so choose. I hope you learn more about the products subscription boxes offer. I really enjoy testing these products. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

PRODUCT TESTING: 

Jor’el Parker Face Mask ($27)

Jor'el Parker Face Mask

I received this product (sample) in my May 2016 Lip Monthly Bag. I really didn’t expect to like this mask, but I love it. It is a very thick mask and I just really love the color. Now this is a true mud mask and it is awesome! It really removed the junk from my pores and left my skin looking new and extremely smooth. You can use it for your face and body. It didn’t irritate my skin at all and it felt so refreshing. It also isn’t overly expensive. The best part…it only takes 5 minutes to completely dry. I love it so much and would definitely buy the FULL SIZE!

Adore Cosmetics CellMax Elite Facial Serum ($749.95)

Adore Cosmetics CellMax Elite Facial Serum

I received this product (sample) in my May 2016 Glossybox. This is an EXTREMELY expensive product! It is almost $800 for the FULL SIZE! There is no way I would spend this much on a serum unless it literally worked miracles. However, I really did love this serum. It has a silky silicone type of feel. You don’t need a lot and it really does blur imperfections. It sinks into the sink so quickly and left my skin feeling so smooth. I really wish it wasn’t so expensive because I would repurchase it. I love the packaging and the formula. I don’t think it is worth $800 but I would pay $80 for it. Maybe Hautelook will carry this line and it will be deeply discounted. I just love how it makes my skin feel. It also helped increase the benefits of my moisturizer and it was easy to apply products on top. It doesn’t leave my skin greasy at all. It honestly is a really nice serum.

Fran Wilson Aloe Lip Care Smooth and Soft ($3)

IMG_7463

I received this product in my June 2016 Tombox. This packaging seriously reminds me of a chapstick my great grandma would carry in her purse. I am not a huge fan of it. I also didn’t really like the product. It is moisturizing but not more than any other chapstick. It is very affordable so that is awesome. It is supposed to have a great scent and flavor. However, I found that statement false. It tastes and smells very fake. It has a very fake sweet taste and reminds me of kids play makeup or old Mary Kay. I wasn’t a huge fan and ended up throwing it away. I just really can’t stand the smell or taste.

Palladio Trio Baked Eye Shadow Seashell ($8)

 

I received this product in my June 2016 Tombox. I have really been enjoying Palladio products. They are affordable and decent quality. I liked this trio, but it didn’t wow me. It is very shimmery and very powdery. It took awhile to build up the color and I would definitely recommend using them wet. I love the shades included and I really love the brown shade. It actually isn’t too powdery and it blends very easily. This is a great little everyday trio, but I wouldn’t purchase more. I like the look I achieved with it, but I could achieve that look with many palettes.

Pop Beauty Permanent Pout Lip Paint in Honey Pink ($14)

 

I received this product in my June 2016 Tombox. Liquid lipsticks are so popular and I didn’t know POP Beauty had a liquid lipstick line. I really love this shade so much. It is the perfect everyday nude/pink shade. I also am a huge fan of the packaging (although it is a bit bulky). The formula is just okay. It is very drying (as most liquid lipsticks are) and you definitely need to apply a balm underneath or on top. It does tend to crack a bit on the lips (which is why you need to apply a balm). I wasn’t a fan of the scent or taste. It has that very fake sweet taste. However, it went away very quickly. The lip paint lasts a very long time on the lips and I just love the shade so much. I don’t think I would buy anymore because I don’t like the fake taste. However, I would use this product again.

Laura Geller Beauty Pout Perfection Waterproof Lip Liner in Cabernet ($18)

 

I received this product in my June 2016 Beautyfix Box. This has to be one of the best lip liners I have ever used. It is a little pricey, but Laura Geller has sales all the time. It was so easy to line my lips and it is very creamy. It lasts for a very long time on the lips and fades nicely. I don’t know how it does it, but it makes my lips look fuller and it makes the center of my lips look juicy. I just love it so much! The color is perfect on its own and it will work with any lip color you apply on top. To say I am obsessed is an understatement. I love wearing it by itself or with a balm on top (makes it even more comfortable to wear). I will definitely look for these lip liners on sale and purchase more.

LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in Haute Cocoa ($10)

 

I received this product in my June 2016 Featured Birchbox. I love these shadow sticks so much and I am so happy they released more colors. This shade is stunning and can be used in so many ways. It blends like a dream and is just so easy to apply. It is so creamy and truly lasts all day. I love the look I created with it. You could use it all over the lid and blend out for a quick look. It works amazingly in the crease and it is so easy to build intensity. I know I will be reaching for this shadow stick very often. I just love it so much! I highly recommend picking up these shadow sticks and trying them for yourself. They are amazing!

NUXE Reve de Miel Facial Cleansing and Make-Up Removing Gel ($19.99)

IMG_7485

I received this product (sample) in my June 2016 Featured Birchbox. I wasn’t a huge fan of this makeup removing gel. It did an okay job at removing my face makeup but you can’t use it around your eyes. It also has a funky smell. It is a sour yet sweet scent and I am just not a fan. It feels cooling on the skin and it didn’t break me out which is always good. It is also supposed to lather up but I never could get it to lather. I wouldn’t buy the FULL SIZE because it is just okay.

The Beauty Crop PBJ Smoothie Stick in Raisin the Roof ($14.95)

 

I received this product in my June 2016 Featured Birchbox. I was so hoping to like this one better than the other PBJ Smoothie Stick I tried. However, I don’t like it at all. I love the color in the swatch but it doesn’t do anything for my lips. It is very hard to get the color to transfer to the lips (even though the pencil is creamy). It looks very chalky on the lips and doesn’t last long at all (which is a good thing because it doesn’t look pretty). I am just not a fan of this formula at all and will not try anymore.

Air Repair Complexion Boosting Moisturizer ($22.43)

IMG_7546

I received this product (sample) in my 2nd June 2016 Birchbox. This is actually a very nice moisturizer. It is a pretty thick formula, but it sinks into the skin very quickly. I was actually surprised by this because I thought it would be really greasy. It really does hydrate my skin and doesn’t leave me feeling oily. It doesn’t have much of a scent which is great for skincare and it didn’t break me out. Overall, this is a very nice moisturizer and I would possibly consider purchasing the FULL SIZE.

Skin&Lab Vita Energy Toner & Mist ($16)

IMG_7571

I received this product in my June 2016 Pink Seoul Box. I really love this toner so much. It sprays very evenly on the skin and is just so easy to use. It has a very light herbal scent and I enjoy it. It feels so refreshing on the skin and really perks up my skin. It really does give my skin a boost of hydration. This is such an awesome summer toner and I will definitely continue using it. I also would repurchase it.

Illi Fresh Moisture Sun Cream ($19.95)

IMG_7575

I received this product in my June 2016 Pink Seoul Box. I really like this sun cream. It has a peach tint that gives the skin a beautiful radiance. I love that it protects the skin while making my skin glow. It has a citrus scent which I love. I wouldn’t recommend this product for oily skin because it is a bit greasy. However, it definitely moisturizes my skin and didn’t leave me extra oily. My makeup applied easily on top and didn’t break up. It takes awhile to sink into the skin but it eventually does. Overall, I really love it because it gives my skin luminosity. I would purchase it again. The tube is very large and it will last me at least a year.
