VeganCuts Makeup Box | Summer 2017

*this is a seasonal box that runs around $30 a quarter. It is clean, Vegan, and cruelty free*

Summer makeup! I love this box, literally everything that I get from Vegan Cuts is 🔥 

The first thing is a bonus item, it’s a Makeup bag! (Pictured above). It’s large, seems to be great quality, and has a really sturdy zipper. It’s something that I could have totally seen myself purchasing, so it was a nice surprise! $20 retail value.

Au Naturale Cosmetics Eternity Lipstic “Primrose” $25 value


I have wanted to try more products from Au Naturale pretty badly, so this lipstick was a welcome edition to the box. 


But…glitter… there is gold Shimmer in the lipstick. The shade is really pretty, but I could do with out the glitters in it. It does take a bit of building up to get a really opaque layer, but that is fine by me. I have been going for really natural looks this summer anyway. 

Emani Eye Shadow Trio “Tantalizing” $20 value


A different Emani eye trio I already own has been my favorite thing lately, super pumped to have another. Especially sense it contains such pretty neutral shades!


The formula is buttery, pigmented, and extremely easy to work with.

Manna Kadar Prime Time Eye and Lip Primer $24 value


Am I the only one who dislikes primers in a pot? I am the worst at screwing lids on all the way, so they always dry out..

But, this one did neutralize the veins on my hands nicely and had a tackiness to it. Maybe worth double and triple checking that the lid is tight so I can get as many uses as possible out of it! 

What do you think of Lip primers??

Pacifica Rainbow Crystal Liquid Mineral Strobe Multi use High Light $13 value “Nebula”


Man that’s a long name…

I have heard some pretty good things about this product so I am excited to get to try it! 


“Nebula” has a really pretty lavender shift to it, and I’m super into the purple highlight trend. It’s neat!

That’s it for this seasons box! I think my only real disappointment is the lipstick. I am hoping I can get past that Shimmer in it.

Thank you so much for reading I really hope you enjoyed it! What is your favorite item from this box?

VeganCuts Beauty Box June 2017 | Uplifting Beauty

*$25ish a month. Clean, vegan, and cruelty free beauty products. Deluxe samples and full sized products. 

This is my favorite subscription box. I am considering canceling all my other subscriptions besides this one. I just have too much stuff and I’m moving 😂

Adoratherapy Mood Boost $20 value


“Uplifting mood boost spray specifically designed for the gal on the go”

I am really into aromatherapy. I have gotten one in the past few Vegan Cuts boxes, it’s exciting. This one smells really nice. Helps to induce a cheerful mood.

Clarisea Instant Glow Powder Exfoliant $5 value


“Lavender flower infused powder exfoliant that buffs away impurities and provides an instant glow.”

Um, yes please! An instant Glow sounds fantastic. I love this brand anyway, so an Product from Clarisea is graciously tried by me.

Sade Baron Body Cream Jasmine $7 value


“Exalt your skin with this small bath jasmin centric body cream”

The scent of this product is very floral, which I enjoy. I think my most favorite thing in the world is bath and body products! This body cream is really thick. I’m already in love.

Earthly Body Miracle Oil $5 Value


“Hemp, tea tree, and other essential oils blended to deeply soothe and restore skin”

You are supposed to be able to use this for everything. I am hoping it will help calm, or at least soothe my eczema a bit. Summer is not nice to my skin.

Little Moon Essential Beach All You Want Mineral Bath $1 Value


“Tropical getaway mineral bath salt kissed with hints of sandalwood and tangerine. No tub? Use as a shower scrub!”

I love body scrubs. End of story. Best invention ever. Can’t wait to try this one.

Jing Al Vegan Lip and Cheek Glow “Pink Chiffon” $10 Value


I never use these things on my cheeks. I always make a mess, but I can always use a new lip color. 


The shade is a really pretty pink with some sparkle. It sheers out nicely on the lips.

That’s it for this months Box! I am really happy with it, not let down by anything. By far the best subscription Beauty Box!!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | May 2017

*This Box cost a little more than $20 a month. All products are vegan, cruelty free and for the majority clean, beauty products. This is my favorite sub box.*

Salis Skincare Black Head Removal Mask $7.50 value


“A natural clay mask made with three simple ingredient to help remove black heads and work towards clear, glowing skin.”

My black heads have been particularly horrendous lately, so this is very welcome.

Luxie Beauty 510 Foundation Brush $20 value


I really love Luxie, so I get really excited every time I see a new one of their brushes in a subscription box! I use a brush like this to apply primer, so I will probably use this for something similar. 

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques pressed shadow “Sweet Pea” $14.50 value


I was really excited for this product. But mine arrived broken. I guess I can just press it. I really don’t feel like asking for a new one. 

The shade is still really pretty!


Little Moon Essential Clear Mind $3.20 value


“Energizing clear mind aromatherapy mist that inspires alertness and energy”

I really believe essential oils make a difference, for me at least. Clear mind, smells great and will be perfect for days I am stressed and flustered. 

Pair’d Beauty Dry Shampoo $6 value


“Organic Dry Shampoo with enticing aromas of sweet cali orange and a hint of eucalyptus.”

You can really smell the eucalyptus. I think this fact will make this Pair’d dry shampoo awesome for my really itchy scalpe. I have never used a try Shampoo that is a liquid.

Nubian Heritage facial cleansing bar $5 value


Gentle African black soap facial cleansing bar that naturally removes impurities without over drying. 

I love using cleansing bars after I remove my make up. This one is anti-acne, so that will be nice.

Vegan Cuts Make-Up Box | Spring 2017

vcm

*This box is quarterly, and retails for $39.95. You can sign up, here!*

Video Unboxing!

This months theme is Spring Paradise, and at the risk of sounding extremely cheesy, this box was paradise to me!!

vcm1

Jersey Shore Cosmetics My Lash Secret Eyelash Curler $25

This is the bonus tool for this month. When I saw this in the box I was ecstatic! I was going to use Ipsy points to get it, but it sold out by the time I got around to it. I have tried it, and it is amazing! I really like curling my lashes, I think I notice a difference. I know some people do not believe they see one.

vcm2

Han Skin Care Cosmetics “Romance” Eyeshadow $13

I love this shade. It is stunning. You can use it easily alone, or incorporate it in to a look! I think I am going to depot mine.

vcm3.jpg

I am kind of addicted to it.

vcm4

Beauty Without Cruelty Full Volume Mascara “Black” $26

I have been wanting to try this mascara for quite a while, but have never brought my self to purchase it. I am really excited to try this and will update y’all once I actually get around to using it. But, I am super pumped to finally have it!

vcm5

Elate Cosmetics Moisturizing Lip Gloss “Divine” $19

This is the product this month that you got to select your shade. I went for a peachy coral shade, and I love it. It is beautiful over peachy nude lipsticks and on its own. I actually really enjoy this formula. It is not too sticky, but it lasts quite a while.

vc m6

I will have an individual post on this gloss.

vcn7

Manna Kadar Radiance Split Pan Bronzer and Highlight Duo $21

The last product is the only one I am a little iffy about. The shape and size of the pans makes it hard to accurately get a brush in it. To me it is just a hassle. The shades are quite nice though.

vcm8

There is no way the bronzer will work on my fair skin, but I bet it is going to make a beautiful shadow. The highlight on the other had is a fantastic shade for me. I have used it, though it took great patience, and it looked fabulous. I may or may not do a review on this as well!

That is all for the spring box! What did you get in yours? Have you tried any of these products, what did you think? Comment below!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | March 2017

vcm

*You get 4-7 new beauty products to try each month for around $22 monthly. vegancuts.com *

Video mate!!

This months theme is Beauty in Bloom, and I think the contents really does fit that theme.

Hempz Fresh Coconut and Watermelon Body Moisturizer $7.30 value:

vcm1

I have loved this brand for a long time. I have only ever seen them at Ulta, but they seem to always be on sale! This is a travel size, which is perfect for this time of year. I spend a lot of the summer and spring at the lake, so I always have a little lotion on hand. I do wish this had some sort of SPF in it. At first the watermelon was a little strong for me, but it really does mellow out in to a more fruity coconut scent, which I really enjoy.

Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Shea Butter Lip Balm $3.99 value:

vcm2

Another brand I already love! I had no idea this product even existed, pretty excited that I get to try it. Again, I wish there was some sort of SPF in it. I will be reviewing a lot of skincare type products soon, this will be one of the products!

PlatLife Detox Mineral Bath $5.95 value:

vcm3

I love taking baths. So anytime I get a product like this I am very appreciative. It smells really nice and earthy. It is going to be perfect to relax in after a long day when my muscles are sore.

Modicum Skincare Exfoliant and Cleanser $32 value:

vcm4

I have a serum by this brand that I love, so I have high expectations for these products. I will be updating you on them! I just want to point out how perfect of a travel size the cleanser is. I would not travel with the exfoliant, because I do not trust the cap. But, that is just my opinion.

Londontown Nail Polish “BRILL-ant” $16 value:

vcm5

Some how this products solo shot got deleted, but you can see it some in this group picture. It is a duochrome mauve, that is supposed to be chip resistant. I feel like I have gotten shades very similar to this in other boxes. I am going to try this out, to see how the formula wears, but I am not all that in love with this shade.

There you have it guys, the March VCBB. I  hope you enjoyed this post and thank you so much for reading. What do you think of the products in this months box? Comment below!

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box | Feburary 2017

vcbbf

My favorite post of the month, Vegan Cuts Beauty Box UN-Boxing! You get a wide variety of cruelty free and vegan products. Let’s jump into this box. Spoiler alert, it is amazing!

vcbbf1

Oral Essentials Whitening Tooth Paste $4 value:

I have been on the hunt for a vegan and cruelty free tooth paste that I actually enjoy. I hate the traditional fake tooth paste minty taste! SO far, I am really enjoying this one! I have not noticed any dramatic whitening effects, but the taste is nice and my teeth are left feeling clean.

Corresponding Video!

Herbal Transdermal Deep Pore Mineral Toner $3 value:

I am forever obsessed with trying out different toners, so I always get excited when I get one.I have yet to try this toner yet, because it has grape fruit in it. I really do not like grape fruit, so I am shying away from it due to that.

Earthly Body Colorphlex $3.99 value

This is a leave in conditioner, meant to protect the color and shine of your hair. It smells really nice, but I think I am going to try to save it for use this summer!

vcbbf2

Crazy Rumors “Chocolate Strawberry” Lip Balm $3.99 Value:

I love this brand and the other balms I have from them. I am love lip balm in general, so that probably helps to sway my opinion. I thought this was a cute thing to put in a February box, because of the greeting card holiday of Valentines Day.

Ariel Co. “Cotton Candy Bubble Gum” Lip scrub $9 value:

You all know I love lip scrubs. My favorite was the Lush Bubble Gum Lip scrub. Now, it is this! It is the perfect consistency, taste amazing, has the right amount of graininess, and the company logo is really cute. Every now and then a certain graphic will sway me.

Emani Vegan Cosmetics trio “Tango” $20 value:

I was a little shocked to see this trio, because I have heard they are a more expensive brand. It is also hard to find good, pressed vegan and clean eye shadows, so that added to my shock!

These are shades I know I will use. They are buttery and extremely pigmented! I have a look coming up soon, using them!
