Summer 2017 Walmart Beauty Box Review

I just got my Summer 2017 Walmart Beauty Box. I pay $5 per quarter. The box is free and you pay the $5 for shipping. This quarter had some nice beauty products.

You can see what I got in my Summer 2017 Walmart Beauty Box Unboxing video!

Here’s what I got in my box. The theme is Radiate Your Beauty and my box is the Classic Box:

Dove Dry Shampoo
Ponds Original Fresh Towelettes
Banana Boat Dry Balance SPF 30
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Facial Moisturizer
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil
Pantene Shampoo + Conditioner

I rate this quarter a 8/10 only because I didn’t get a cosmetic product.

Deco Miami Nail Polish Review

I received a bottle the the Deco Miami Nail Polish in Feeling Fuego in my June Allure Beauty Box and it’s a neat nail polish that vegan and cruelty free.

What’s to love?

First up I love the packaging. You get a cute triangle box that houses the nail polish. The bottle is on the small side at 5.75 ml but there’s a neat story about this and it’s practical!

Deco Miami comes in tons of great shades and their Summer 2017 Collection is gorgeous. The color is amazingly pigmented and I only needed to apply one coat for full-coverage. I was also so impressed with how fast it dried and it dries hard, not goopy or soft.

I can’t wait to try more shades!

This nail polish is also free of DBP, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene, camphor, parabens, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, and triphenyl phosphate (TPHP) and it’s Made in the USA!

Retail Price: $12.50

Julep It’s Balm Full-Coverage Lip Crayon Review

The Julep It’s Balm Full-Coverage Lip Crayon in Ripe Raspberry Shimmer is gorgeous! I got this in my Julep Let’s Glow Out Mystery Box and I am thrilled.

What’s to love?

This Julep lip crayon is now one of my favorites. It comes in 18 shades and has a super-hydrating treatment core enriched with sunflower butter and vitamin E.

The crayon is a semi-gloss that perfectly plumps my lips with a little bit of shine. The Ripe Raspberry Shimmer color is so pretty for Summer too.

I feel like my lips are getting moisture while they look amazing and the formula is very pigmented and has great lasting power for a crayon. I really want a few more of these for my make-up bag and purse.

Price: $20.00 or $16 for Julep Mavens

Lush Milky Bath Bubble Bar Review

I am completely confounded with the Lush Milky Bath Bubble Bar because it gets amazing reviews and my mom and daughter like the scent but I’m just not loving this one.

The Milky Bath Bubble bar has Fair Trade Cocoa Butter, Orange Oil, Patchouli Oil and Citronellol which I think is the scent that is bothering me. Citronellol is a colorless liquid with a sweet, rose-like odor and I’m not a huge fan of roses.

I also think that I was expecting Milky Bath to smell like vanilla so when I smelled roses I was a little taken aback. I did melt a piece in the sink and it does perform like most Lush Bubble bars in giving off great bubbles and my hands did feel amazing. I just can’t get on board with the scent.

The lesson here is smell before you buy! I did order this one online before smelling it and while most of the Lush descriptive are spot on it does take an in person whiff to really get a sense of whether you’re going to love a product.

The good news is that this is only the second Lush product that hasn’t floated my boat. The other product was the Lush Aqua Marina Cleanser.

Does anyone else have an aversion to roses?

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick Review

I received a sample of the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in my June Sephora Play! Box in the K-Dub shade which is a bold fuchsia.

What’s to love?

So I’m going to say WOW about this liquid lipstick. I love Kat Von D and I really need to do a haul of her stuff. The Everlasting Liquid Lipstick comes in 20 shades that range from subtle (Noble petal pink nude) to wild (Dreamer neon turquoise) and I am loving this formula.

I have issues with liquid lipsticks that dry out on my lips but this one worked fine and gave me a nice creamy texture that looked really pretty on me. It also had decent staying power (expect for greasy food) and the pigmentation is amazing, I had no patchy spots.

I got quite a few compliments wearing this the K-Dub shade and I also love that it has a sugary scent and taste.

Retail price: $20

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip Review

I received a ColourPop Ultra Satin Liquid Lippie in my Summer 2017 Beautycon Box. I got the London Fog shade which is a pinky red!

What’s to love?

I like the ColourPop Ultra Satin Lippie mush better than the Matte version because it gives me a little bit of shine. However this shade is way too red on me but I’d like to try a nude or plum color next.

The formula is nice and not too drying which I like. I didn’t have any bleeding but the color did wear off a bit when I was eating. I feel like this is a really nice lip product for the price too.

Price: $6

Lush Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar Review

The Lush Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar is a spicy bar with loads of fluffy bubble and blue water.

What’s to love?

The Lush Blue Skies and Fluffy White Clouds Bubble Bar is definitely one of the more spicy bubble bars. It has frankincense, Patchouli Oil, Cinnamon Leaf Oil and Amyl Cinnamal and the scent is a sweet woodsy fragrance that’s very relaxing.

It is much stronger in the cake form however once you melt the bubble bar it’s less strong. I would recommend smelling this one before you buy just so you know what scent you are getting.

The bubbles from this one are so soft and amazing too!

Price: $11.95
