Blinc Electric Eye Palette | Review and Look

This five pan metallic eyeshadow palette came in a BoxyCharm a few months back. It had gotten tucked away in my collection, and I am just getting around to using it!

I considered not reviewing it, because I thought it was exclusive to BC, and it had been to long since that box was given to be relevant. Turns out you can purchase this Palette. It retails for $25 and it is cruelty free!

“An electric combination of jewel toned shadows.”

Besides the beautiful ruby shade, I would not really consider these shades jewel toned. I would say they are very metallic and pigmented. They have an unusual texture, almost wet, which makes the shades apply very vibrant. I recommend patting them on. I used the flat shadow brush from ColourPop with them.

  • Orpime
  • Rhodoni
  • Vanadini
  • Autuni
  • Sphene

What is with these names? I am hoping they are referring to types of jewels, or crystals or rocks and I am just not geologically inclined enough to know.

Aren’t these shades just drop dead perfect! Every single one is one swipe! I need more Blinc eyeshadows, because these are probably the best actually metallic shadows I have ever used.

The Look

  • I primed my eyes with the concealer I used and set it with my translucent setting powder
  • I pulled in the Urban Decay Ultimate Matte palette for my transition and blending shades.
  • I used that first shade, Orpime on my outer lid.
  • All over the rest of my lid I used the shade Vanadini.
  • For my inner corner I used the lightest shade, Sphene.

  • For my lower lash line I went with the beautiful shade, Rhodoni, for a pop of color. I want to use this all over my lid so bad.

Over all:

🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄 out of five Christmas trees!!! I want more of these palettes if they make them in different shades. Personally, I would spend $25 on this. The formula is THAT good! It makes me want to try more from the brand Blinc in general.

Pick up this bomb AF palette for yourself, Here.

Boxy Charm Dec. 2017 | Glitz & Glam

Hey guys!

The December subscription boxes have started rolling in.

BoxyCharm is $21 a month. It contains 4-5 full sized or deluxe sized beauty and makeup items. More often than not it is all full sized products!

Real Her Blush Kit $32

Real Her is a brand that I see in Boxy a lot. I have tried lip products and eye shadows, but never Blush. I can’t remember the last time I used a baked Blush. All 3 shades have some degree of shimmer and are meant to give your cheeks a natural glow.

I can actually see myself using all 3 shades. This brand is Paraben Free, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, and is made of Natural Ingredients!

Crown Brush Deluxe Blush Brush $12

I am pretty sure I got a crown Brush Blush Brush last month as well. It was almost identical to this one, but black instead of white. I passed that one on to a friend. I will probably to the same with this one, I just can’t get away from my Real Techniques Brush.

Pretty Vulgar My Lips Are Sealed Light Weight Liquid Lip “Secret Sabotage ” $24

I can not get over how cute all the Pretty Vulgar packaging is. I have wanted to purchase some of it, but haven’t heard the best reviews, so I have been wary. Now I get to try one of their liquid lips!

I really like the shade I got! A metallic nude.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara “Black” $23

I have reviewed this Mascara before, and I absolutely love it! I have gone through and travel size and a full sized tube. I just haven’t gotten around to picking it up again. Really glad it is back in my collection.

Beaute Basics Bronze Essentials $39.95

I can not grasp that this product is almost $40. It can act as Highlight, Bronzer, and eyeshadow, but so can a ton of other products.

Here are swatches of the shades individually and all together at the bottom. I guess we will find out if it’s worth the price. I doubt it.

This months Box valued for $130.95. Two of the products are probably duds for me, but the other three are awesome enough for me to still be happy that I got it!

Did you get BC? What was in your box? Comment below!

Boxy Charm Nov. 2017| Sweater Weather

Hey y’all!

Long time no talk, I ended up not being able to prewrite as many post as I wanted before I went to Kentucky for 5 days. But, when I came back I found the November BC on my bed. I guess I got taken off the wait list and didn’t realize it!

I had already seen what this box contained, so I already knew the contents were going to be great.

Luxie Beauty Quad Travel Set $32

For some reason I didn’t notice that one of the brushes wasn’t included in the picture, but I promise there are 4.

  • 207T
  • 227T
  • 213T
  • 221T

Cover FX Illuminating Setting Spray $31

I almost bought this setting spray at the Sephora VIB sale, I have heard some amazing things about it. I am really glad I get to try it out in this months BC. And it’s full size!!

Winky Lux Kitten Palette $25

I am so pumped for this palette that I can barely contain my excitement! The packaging it’s self is so cute! The colors are amazing, the perfect mix of Metallics and mattes.

The only thing the palette is lacking is a mirror!

I am really in love with these shades and cannot wait to use them!

So pigmented and creamy!

Laqa & Co. Cloud Lips “Sun Shower” $17

I have never heard of this brand, so I am pretty interested in trying out this lipstick from them. The formula is creamy and pigmented.

The shade is a pretty red. I am all about red lips in the winter, so I will definitely be giving this product a try. It feels very light weight!

KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks $15

There are three in the box. I have never used a lip mask like this before, so I am very intrigued by it. They are meant to hydrate, nourish, and plump your lips. I really hope these work!

This months Box has a $120 Value, all for $21!! I am so excited that I am getting BC again, I missed it so much!

Have you tried any of these products? Comment below!

Thank you for reading.💜

September 2017 Empties | Look at my beauty trash!

It is now officially my favorite month of the year,  October! I love everything to do with it, fall, pumpkins, HALLOWEEN! 

But, for now, let’s focus on my September beauty Empties.


Tarte Blush sample “Captivating”

This is not a product I will be purchasing. I have a million blushes that don’t get used as it is. The color is very pretty though. I also thought it important to mention I got a ton of use out of this little sample.

PUR Cosmetics Makeup Blender

I got this in a Boxy Charm before I cancelled my subscription. I really am not a fan of this sponge. It does the job, but it is nothing compared to the beauty blender. I will not be picking up another. 

NYX HD Concealer “yellow”

This Concealer is really inexpensive, and usually on some sort of discount at Ulta. Unfortunately, it didn’t do much for me. It is very thin, so it gave no coverage. I will not be repurchasing it.

Wet n’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation “Shell Ivory”

I love this Foundation. It is the perfect match for my skin, cruelty free AND vegan AND very inexpensive. I have already repurchased this Foundation, and I used a half off coupon so it was only like $2.50!!

Smashbox Photo Ready Eye Primer “light”

This was just a little sample of the product. But, I really disliked it. It seemed to make my lids crease even more than normal. Will not purchase. 


Bath and Body Works “Twilight Woods” body spray mini

If only bath and body works was completely cruelty free. I do enjoy this warm woodsy scent. Unfortunately, B&BW is not a company I support anymore.

Naked Scrubs “Lemon”

I got this body scrub in a vegan Cuts box and I am in love with it. It was really clean ingredients wise, the perfect amount of grittiness, and the smell was stunning! I want to try more of their products, so yes. I will be purchasing this product. 

Ban Deodorant

This Deodorant smelled very sweet and nice. But, it really did not do its job. It would work for like an hour- then nothing. So, nope will not ever repurchase.


Nexxus City Shield Shampoo and Conditioner 

I received these products for free from Influenster. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the scent. I also do not think that they perform well enough to cost $19 each. Will not be purchasing.


CVS Makeup Remover Wipes

I really enjoyed these wipes. Unfortunately, I don’t live anywhere near a CVS now. What is your favorite makeup removing wipe??

Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum

The scent of this stuff….I cannot stand it! I believe I got this ages ago in a Birch Box. It didn’t do anything for my acne anyway. Will not be purchasing this Serum.

Tony Moly I’m Real Red Wine Mask

I really enjoyed this mask, and thought the fit was great. Unfortunately, Tony Moly is not a cruelty free brand. Therefore, I will not be purchasing this mask again.

That’s all my Empties for this month! Not to much, but that’s ok! What did you use up this month? Comment below!!

I AM BACK! Biobelle PrimerMask Review

Just a little update! I have cancelled all of my subscriptions, I have accumulated way too much stuff. That being said, get ready for a ton of reviews and looks! 

Product: Biobelle Primer Mask

Price: $6 at Ulta

I am not going to lie. This sounded like a dumb gimmick to me. But, when reading the packaging, I did notice it sounded like great skin care none the less.

  • Paraben free
  • Gluten free
  • No GMO’s
  • Made with natural extracts and botanic fibers

Sounds like an awfully clean product! 

It also contains…

  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Rosehip extract
  • And vitamin C

Sounds like a bomb face Serum! It is meant to enhance radiance, minimize pores, and even skin tone.


I have to say, this is the best fitting sheet mask that I have used yet. 

There was no overwhelming scent, and it is only meant to stay on for five minutes!

After the five minutes was up, I massaged the Serum into my face, then rinsed.


In my opinion, my face makeup looked much smoother than normal. (Ignore my under eyes, sleep is pretty much nonexistent to me anymore…) 

Though I didn’t notice my makeup lasting longer than normal, I did notice my makeup looked better and my skin felt and looked much better than it has recently. 

8/10 Didn’t make my makeup last longer, but is an awesome sheet mask over all!

I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you all for baring with me and al your words of encouragement!

What is your favorite sheet mask?

Boxy Charm June 2017| Down Town Charm

* $21 a month. Usually full sized beauty products. 4-5 each month

If you want to start a makeup collection of just random products, Boxy Charm is the way to make that happen. 😂😂

Eye Shadow Palette 1 By Real Her $28.00


Boxy Charm must be teamed with Real Her, because they have included at least one product from them for a few months now. This time it is a 9 pan eyeshadow palette.

The one I got is pretty cool toned, there were two other alternatives.


I was a little disappointed in the pigmentation of some of these shadows. I will still have to give them a try on my eyes. 

3 sheet masks by Biobelle Cosmetics $14.97


These sheet masks are sold at Ulta! 

  • #iwokeuplikethis
  • #primer
  • #beautysecret

I have almost bought them more than once. They seem neat.

Diamond Glow Powder by Artist Couture “illuminate” $26.99


I am not the biggest fan of loose powders. They are just messy. I have heard a lot of this specific high lighter on Instagram, so I am still glad to try it.


There is quite a bit of legit glitter in this powder…

Luxie Rose Gold Pro Precision Tapered Face Brush 640 $24.00

 I love getting brushes in my subscriptions, because I hate buying them. 

I really enjoy the quality of Luxie Brushes, this one is going to be great for highlighting. 

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lip Stick “Santa Ana” $19.90


The Ofra liquid lipsticks are fantastic. If I had the money I would by them all. 

This one appears Fushia in the bottle, but dries down more red.


The shade is stunning, I can not wait to use it!

I am pretty happy with this months Box. I am a little iffy about the palette though.

Boxy Charm May 2017 | Makeup is Art 


*Boxy Charm is a subscription service that cost $21 per month*

This months theme was make is art, so it focused on items, that in my unprofessional opinion, would be useful in a kit.

IBY Beauty Highlight and Contour Kit Retails:$40


The powders in this contour kit are very buttery, and have great pigmentation. They actually seem light enough to work for me, but the contour shade do lean a little warm.


Great pigmentation though, I will keep you all updated.

The Brow Gal Convertible Brow “02” Retails: $35


The Brow Gal is a brand I have tried before and love. (How many people do you think will get mad over the “do your face a favor thing”?😂😂😜) This kit is supposed to be for brown hair but I think I can make it work.


They are actually way more pigmented than I thought they would be, so my expectations for this are high. 

Tenptu Liquid Glow Retails: $29.50


I am just going to start out by saying, I am not the biggest fan of Liquid highlights. They just seem like so much work, and so much can easily go wrong.


This shade is really pretty though, so I think I have to give it a shot.

The Brow Gal Brow Brush $14.00

Crown Brush Round Contour Brush $24.99


Who can’t use a good Brow Brush and spoolie? The bristles seem to be the perfect stiffness.

As for the round Brush. I have never tried one, but I have wanted to really bad. 

Overall, this box was nice. Not my favorite, but I will definitely get use out of everything.

I hope you enjoyed this post, thank you so much for stopping by.❤️❤️
