I recently, teamed up with So Choix to do an unboxing of their subscription box. So Choix is a subscription box where you get to choose 5 mini beauty samples for $15/month. It’s very unique and a great way to test out new products. You can choose from hundreds of brands and products, and every product you choose (after 5) is only $3 extra. Not only do they carry makeup, but they also include skin care, fragrances, nail polish, and more! Keep reading to see my 5 picks <3
All of the products I chose were some that I’ve been wanting to try for quite a while but never bought, so it was really fun to test them out!
The products I received were: Benefit ‘High Beam’ Highlighter // Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream // Gucci Precise Brow Pencil in 020-Brunette // Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion // Smashbox Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Inspiration
I can’t handle how cute these little samples are! I am absolutely obsessed with this Gucci Precise Brown Pencil, it was my favorite product from the box! I have tried several eyebrow products, but was so surprised to see how well this pencil worked. It works perfectly for filling in your brows. The shade was one too light (I’m starting to realize how dark my brows are, haha!), but that was my only con. I will definitely be purchasing the full-size item of this soon!
I am a huge fan of Benefit’s Watts Up highlighter, and wanted to test out this highlighter. It has a very natural finish, which was great for a light makeup day or when I’m using tinted moisturizer. It adds the perfect “natural” amount of glow to my cheeks, but wouldn’t use if I was wearing a lot of makeup, since it wouldn’t show up.
I’m running out of my current favorite moisturizer, and decided to try out some of Benefit’s skin care items. This cream is so refreshing! It’s heavy, so I only need to use just a tiny amount, and it absorbs into my skin so well. It’s not oily at all, and has a good smell (I hate when moisturizers have bad smells 👎🏽). I’m going to be using it a little longer to see if I like it more than my current moisturizer, but so far so good!
I was so disappointed when I used this Hourglass blush! I love their highlighting palette, and this blush looks so promising. I think the color might have been to light, so it didn’t appear on my olive skin. I didn’t see a glow-y finish, either, which was a bummer! I think if I had lighter skin (or a darker blush), I might have enjoyed it a little more. The quality seemed really nice, and I might use it one more time to see if I can get it to show up a little more.
I am in love with this Smashbox lipstick, the color is perfect for summer! It’s a really bright pink with red undertones, it’s gorgeous! The finish is semi-glossy, and it’s a very moisturizing/creamy lipstick to apply. It’s a little hard to apply, since it doesn’t come in tube, but that wasn’t a big deal since I just used a lip brush. Be extra careful applying this though, since it stains pretty bad!
