Boxycharm February 2019 Review

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!

Too Faced Diamond Highlighter Review

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.

Price: $34

Too Faced La Creme Mystical Lipstick Fairy Tears Review

The Too Faced La Creme Mystical Lipstick Fairy Tears lipstick was calling my name in Sephora this past weekend and I’m so glad I got this fairy wonder.

 

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.

Too Faced Glow Job Glitter Face Mask

I feel like 2018 is the year of Glitter and Too Faced has a hot product that they can’t keep in stock. The Too Faced Glow Job Glitter Peel Off Face Mask is pink and — well glittery! It’s also back in stock right now.

The pink glitter mask is infused with real gold and is supposed to exfoliate formula dull and tired skin. I love that it is a peel-off mask. The price is $42 for 1.7 oz.

I’m really thinking that I might need this one!

Too Faced Glitter Bomb? Oh Yeah!

Just when my beauty budget was getting under control the amazing people at Too Faced have to go and release Glitter Bomb!

I may be over 40 but I’m not even close to being immune to the lure of glitter. Oh and of course there are 3 shades of purple (my favorite eyeshadow color) that is further driving my need to get my hands on this palette!

In addition to the purples you also get 5 more glitter shades including 3 pinks a blue and a gold. You also get white and black matte bases to play with.

Being ruined by my 80’s past I’m pretty sure I’ll be digging out $45 so that I can adorn my eyes in glitter. Duran Duran concert here I come!
