Beauty Box 5 Adventure Awaits June 2017 - What's Inside

 Today I have a look at this month's box from Beauty Box 5. They have really been stepping up their boxes in a big way. Last month was so great with all full sized products and this month there are 4 full size products. I was really pleased to see there was a good mixture of products from hair to eyeliner to mascara. Find out more about what is inside below!

 The first thing that I noticed when I opened the box, was the Jesse's Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Blue Hawaii. I absolutely love Jesse's Girl Liquid Liner in Black so this is great to have when I want to use something to make my liner pop. The formula dries quickly and has a hard time smudging. (Retail: $6.99, full size)

 Now onto something for lashes, this is the Prestige Cosmetics My Biggest Lashes Mascara. It has a big plushy brush that can grab right at the roots of the lashes and build up volume. I usually don't do too well if a mascara has a huge brush since it can weigh down my lashes. I'm going to have to see how this will work and report back. (Retail: $7.50, full size)

 Next up is this Laritzy Cosmetics Lip Pencil and I have the shade Beau. It is a beautiful brick red color and is nicely pigmented. This is great to pair with a lipstick or wear on its own and top with a gloss.

 To switch it up a little, there is a Jeweled Hair Tie Set from Did Hair. It depends on what you get in your own box, but I received the pink ties. These are super cute and very practical since ribbon hair ties are the kind I use in my hair. They never snag or tug on the hair and are comfortable. (Retail: $7.50, full size)

 Last but not least is this Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette Sampler. It comes with 4 mini eyeshadows that are from the Revealed 3 palette. The shades are a bit on the softer side but it's a great way to try out a few shades from the bigger palette to determine if you are wanting to pick it up. (Sample size)


So there is a look at everything in this month's Beauty Box 5. Let me know which products you are excited to get it your box!

Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Savannah - Review


When I went on my weekly trip to Sephora, I knew I wanted a lip product but not a matte or a liquid lipstick. It was then I stumbled upon this Color Balm Lipstick from Stila. It claimed to be a creamy lip color that nourishes like a balm. Plus it had a peppermint scent so I was sold. I was so excited to find something that would give my lips color while still keeping them moisturized all day long. My results on this though were different than expected. Find out more below!

The liners are pigmented, soft, and don't smudge at all. The liquid liner is something I would definitely use daily. It is a lovely black shade and is easy to use with the pointed tip. When I wore it all day, I didn't notice any fading or flaking. The formula for all of the liners is great.

Which shades do you love?

End Your Dry Skin with Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EndYourDrySkin #WetSkinIsBestSkin #CollectiveBias
 Dry skin has always been something I have struggled with. It can feel tight and uncomfortable in the winter, while being dry and itchy during the summer. It is a constant skin concern that I think about daily. I have always had short term solutions but nothing that was going to get me hydrated skin for long period of time. I was excited to try Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer because it’s a different way to moisturize skin and is easy to incorporate into my daily routine. Find out more about my experience below!
