Rich & Dazzling is a truly “rich” and thick formula that literally sparkles! I have the shade Hidden Talents which is a deep hot pinkish mauve tone. It has flecks of gold sparkle too which gives it a multi-dimensional appearance. It literally sparkles!
Hidden Talents is a pretty dark shade and not one I would wear everyday but it’s great for a special occasion or an evening ZOOM date! I’d love to get the clear sparkly Pant Off, Dance Off shade next.
The formula feels nice on my lips but is pretty thick and it has decent staying power for a lip gloss. I’m loving it!
The packaging also makes me feel like royalty with a pink cap and gold emblem. It looks so pretty on my make-up table!
Also be sure to check out my Boxycharm unboxing video as I try the Rich & Dazzling Lip Gloss on!
The Dew You Face Primer comes in 3 shades: Radiant Pearl, Radiant Nude and Radiant Carmel. I have the pearl shade. It’s super translucent.
What I love about this product is that it’s super moisturizing and it smells like watermelon and cucumber.
As described, Dew You is completely weightless. I hate wearing heavy products in the Summer and this one feels so refreshing on my face. I also found that it works so well under my make-up. I am a huge fan of the It Bye Bye Under Eye Waterproof Concealer and when I apply this concealer over the Dew You it feels amazing! No more tugging under my eyes, it just glides right on.
I would call the Too Faced Dew You a fresh primer that makes my skin feel light and refreshed and I love that I get a little bit of glow without a hard shimmer. I truly do feel luminous!
I love mascara! It’s a daily staple for me and I’m alway trying new brands and formulas. I’m also a bit of a germaphobe so I swap out mascara after 30 days which means price is a factor for me. So far for Spring 2019 these 4 picks are making up my mascara hot list!
From Right to Left…
ColourPop BFF Volumizing Mascara – The BFF mascara comes in 7 shades including Magenta which I might have worn in my 20’s! I have the Black on Black which suites me fine. Price: $8 which is a deal!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – The Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara is on the pricey side at $24 but I received this full-sized tube in my February GlossyBox so all is good. I love that it give my lashes a little curl! It is made in Italy and the metal tube is a work of art!
PUR Fully Charged Mascara– The PUR Fully charged mascara adds a bit of science (and volume) to your lashes. “It’s Mascara Powered by Magnetic Technology that attracts to each individual lash to strengthen, thicken, lengthen and separate for unparalleled performance.” WOW! Price: $22. I got this one in my PUS Mystery bag.
Avon True Color Super Extended Lengthening Mascara – The price is right on this Hypoallergenic formula that won’t clump, smudge, or flake. It does give my lashes some nice length and it has good wear. Price: $8.
In 2019 I started to unsubscribe to my beauty boxes (but that’s another post). The one that I kept was Boxycharm (here’s my referral code) because it’s really the best value, hands down. For only $21/month you get well over $100 worth of product, many of which are full sized. As you can see from the photo below my February 2019 was a jackpot win! The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (which retails for $24) paid for the entire box.
I also got….
The Pretty Vulgar Bronzed B, Bronzer (retail $32). This is a nice product which I would never pay $32 for but I was thrilled to get it in my box. It’s Made in the USA too.
The Touch In Sol No Problem Primer (retail $18). I have never heard of this brand but a full-sized primer is a good product to get.
The Sol De Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream (retail $20). I have the Bum Bum Cream and this one smells amazing too. So a huge yes to a nice coconut cream.
The NudeStix Magnetic Luminous Eye Color (retail $24). Again I would never pay $24 for a stick but happy to get one. The shade is a super nice bronze and I am loving it already.
So this month the box was a $118. Yes, this box is amazing!
I am a huge fan of highlighters for my cheek bones. I feel like it lightens my over 40 skin and gives me a bit of a glow. The Too Faced Diamond Highlighter is a new favorite of mine both in design and product.
The Too Faced Diamon Highlighter comes in 3 shades: Diamond Fire (which I have), Fancy Pink Diamond and Canary Diamond.
The packaging is amazing! The box looks like a ring box and the product is shaped like a gem. It’s a work of art!
According to Too Face the Highlighter is a — Prismatic highlighter infused with real crushed diamond powder and light-reflecting pearls for extra luxe sparkle
I love that I’m wearing diamonds on my face! At first I was worried that this highlighter might be too light but it’s just perfect. It give my skin a nice glow high up on my cheeks without looking too bright.
A little goes a long way and the pan is huge so I suspect this one will last awhile.
This palette has 18 amazing shades including my favorite Fall purple OOO Burn! It has a nice sparkle too. The shades have amazing pigmentation and they blend so nicely! The Frostbite Me shade works as a highlighter too.
AND the palette has a gingerbread scent!
Powdered Sugar (matte cream)
Spiked Eggnog (silvered champagne)
Gumdrop (matte fuchsia)
Gingerbread (matte warm brown)
Warm & Toasty (warm gold)
OOO Burn! (plum w/ gold sparkle)
Frostbite Me (shimmering white frosting)
Lookie At My Cookie (matte peach)

Oh, Snap! (warm brown w/ gold sparkle)

Sugar Daddy (matte baby pink)
Figgy Pudding (matte plum)
Hot Toddy (hot pink to copper shift)
Reindeer Paws (matte espresso)
Gingerbread Latte (matte gingerbread)
Spiced Rum (silvered brown)
I swatched from left to right: Hot Toddy, Warm & Toasty, OOO Burn! and Spice Is Nice.
This mystical lipstick is an incredible shade-shifter that just screams rainbows and unicorns. It also changes the color depending on body temperature. They Fairy Tears gives me a gorgeous bright pink shade that sparkles.
It also comes in…
La Crème – Unicorn Tears
La Crème – Mermaid Tears
La Crème – Angel Tears
La Crème – Fairy Tears
What’s to love?
The scent is described as a “signature sweet unicorn scent” and I would say that’s pretty accurate. It smells like sweet candy and that’s fine by me.
The lipstick itself is really high-quality cream with that appears yellow in the tube but it morphs into a bight pink on my lips. Fairy Tears has nice staying power and I got a lot of compliments — when I explain the magic of Fairy Tears everyone is in awe. The Holographic Purple/Lavender Mermaid Tears is next on my list.
