iBeauty Box August 2018

iBeauty Box is a monthly box that sends you an assortment of cosmetics, skin care, lifestyle items.  They include full size and sample size products from brands you know and ones to discover.  You could get anything from nail care, hair care, skincare, jewellery, or candles to makeup.  I’ve been in the market for more of the beauty boxes that drew me into this for a while so when I saw this one I thought I’d give it a try.  Boxes start at $24.99 a month and go down very slightly if you subscribe for a longer term.  Shipping to Canada is included in that price.

The box is CrateJoy teal but they have the iBeauty Box sticker on the one side so you know what you are getting.

They have an info card included and that tells you what you will find inside as well as the retail price of that item.

20180823_163617

Dragonfly Necklace-$56.00

I like this necklace but in no way, shape, or form do I think it’s worth $56.00.  It’s just no heavy enough or well made enough for that.  With all of that being said, it is a nice piece of jewellry and I will wear it.

e.l.f. Velvet Matte Lipstick in Berry Bordeaux-$3.00

It’s been a while since I’ve recieved any e.l.f. items and I’m happy to have them.  This is a very dark colour though and not all that wearable for me as an everyday item.  It would work for a special occasion or maybe once Fall is here I’ll find it more suitable.

20180823_163654

L.A. Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Smokey-$6.00

I like this palette.  It hasa good mix of sparkly shades and matte shades to create any eye look you want to.  The colours are also all really wearable, which doesn’t always happen in some palettes.

20180823_163720

Nail Stickers-$6.00

There are four sheets of regular nail stickers and one sheet of something that is different.  There is a yellow and black check, a leopard print, pink squares, and an anime one.  These are a bit of a waste for me as my nails are never long enough to worry about using them.

20180823_163631

Sassy + Chic Fashion Eyelashes-$9.00

I like fake lashes even if I don’t wear them all that often.  These seem like a nice pair and aren’t crazy long.  It has taken me many tries to be able to apply  lashes so I’m always happy to get another pair to work with.

20180823_163822

Dermal Acia Berry Collagen Essence Mask-$9.00

I use a mask once a week and my stash is getting low so this is a welcome product.  Most of the wording on this package is in Korean so I have no clue about what it does but I’m going to go with firming and plumping, based on the fact that it’s collagen.

20180823_163846

In the samples included this month we haveLeaf & Rusher Skin Tonic, Shiseido Eye Wrinkle Expert, and purminerals Impact+ mascara.  I love that they include a few of these each month.  It’s a bonus and it helps to make the box feel complete.

This month is back to what I was hoping to get when I signed up for this box.  There is a great mix of beauty products and I think I’ve finally figured out that each month I’m going to get a piece of jewellery and something else that is not specifically beauty related.  The value this month is $89.00 which is a good value for what I paid.  If you want to check out iBeauty Box or any other boxes on CrateJoy click here and start your search.

The info card tells you what you can expect to have inside your box each month.

20180622_181947

Sterling Silver Bracelet-$50.99

This bracelet is stunning!  I love it!  It did take me a few minutes to get it on as it’s tight to open but it fits me well and looks great on my wrist.  This is one of my favourite pieces of jewellery that I’ve ever received in a box.  iBeauty for the win on this one.

20180622_182010

Global Beauty Care Collagen Spa Treatment Mask-$4.99

There are two masks in this package.  These ones contain anti-ageing serum to fight wrinkles and fine lines.  I’ve been off my normal mask a week pattern for a few weeks so these will be good to help me get back into it.

20180622_181901

Covergirl ShineBlast Lip Gloss-$6.99

This gloss is great.  I know some people will be unhappy to get a Covergirl product in a box but I’m okay with it and like the gold shimmer that I received.  It also has a nice scent to it and isn’t sticky on my lips.

20180622_182042

e.l.f Eyebrow Stencil Kit-$4.99

This is an item I probably won’t use.  I ten to leave my eyebrows alone besides a quick filling with a pencil.  I would not make those shapes anyways, they are too dramatic for plain old me.

20180622_181930

Fringe Key Chain-$6.99

This is a fun little item.  I enjoy having things on my purse so this will join in.

20180622_181740

Essie Nail Laquer in Starry Starry Night-$9.99

This is a very dark blue polish.  The sparkles are not a pronounced as you would think.  This is a polish I like but I’m not sure that it’s all that summery.  Essie is a brand I am happy to get any time, even though I would rather not get all that many nail polishes.

20180622_182119

We have four samples included this month. Mary Kay eyeshadow, Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer, Keranique Hair Mask, and Briogeo Hair mask.

This month is back to what I was hoping to get when I signed up for this box.  There is a great mix of beauty products and I think I’ve finally figured out that each month I’m going to get a piece of jewellery and something else that is not specifically beauty related.  The value this month is $84.94 which is a good value for what I paid.  If you want to check out iBeauty Box or any other boxes on CrateJoy click here and start your search.

 

 

 

iBeauty Box May 2018

iBeauty Box is a monthly box that sends you an assortment of cosmetics, skin care, lifestyle items.  They include full size and sample size products from brands you know and ones to discover.  You could get anything from nail care, hair care, skincare, jewelry, or candles to makeup.  I’ve been in the market for more of the beauty boxes that drew me into this for a while so when I saw this one I thought I’d give it a try.  Boxes start at $24.99 a month and go down very slightly if you subscribe for a longer term.  Shipping to Canada is included in that price.

The box is a Cratejoy box with an iBeauty sticker on the one side.  The box is a little over half full of delightful things to discover.

20180526_084434

They include an info card that tells you what you will find and the value of those items.

20180526_084755

Turquoise Peacock Necklace-$15.99

I think this is a very pretty necklace.  The chain is a little cheap feeling but overall it’s nice.  There is a turquoise stone in the center and the outside has similar coloured stones for added sparkle.

The Balm Bronzer/Blush in Cabana Boy-$9.99

This is more of a blush in my opinion as it’s a sparkly pink shade.  It’s very light though and completely wearable. I really like The Balm products and am happy to get them in boxes.

20180526_084818

Silisponge-$9.99

These are the new makeup blenders.  I have received a few of them now from different boxes and I still haven’t tried them.  I like the Beauty Blenders and find they work well so I don’t trust this to work as well for me.  I will have to eventually give these a go.

20180526_084731

Jane Gliding Liners Eye Pencil in Slate Blue-$6.89

This is a mineral pencil and it glides on quite nicely.  It had a little bit of wax or something on the end so when I first rubbed it, nothing happened.  Then after a couple of swipes, it started to leave a mark.  I haven’t worn a blue liner in a while but I do like a pencil type eyeliner.

20180526_084621

Essie Nail Polish in Life Of The Party-$10.99

I don’t normally like getting polishes in boxes since I have a bunch and don’t wear them all that often.  However, I love the Essie brand and this is a great colour.  It is a dark pink with very tiny glitter in it.  Anything with shimmer is fine in my books!

20180526_084608

Simple Eye Markup Remover-$4.99

I have used a few other Simple products and have found them to be good at cleansing.  This is just for eye makeup removal but I expect that it will be just as effective.  It has no oils or perfumes in it, so it’ll be gentle on the delicate eye area skin.

20180526_084638

LipFusion Infatuation Lip Colour in Pucker Up-$7.99

This is a plumping lip gloss and it has the tingle of whatever method of plumping formula they are using.  It is a soft pink colour and works well for me.  This is about half of a normal sized lip gloss but it’ll still give me enough to use before I get tired of it and switch it up for something else.

There are three samples included this month.  We have Lancome Lipsticks, Burberry Brit perfume, and Nude Rescue Oil.

This month is back to what I was hoping to get when I signed up for this box.  There is a great mix of beauty products and I think I’ve finally figured out that each month I’m going to get a piece of jewelry and a tool.  The value this month is $66.83, which is a good value for what I paid.  If you want to check out iBeauty Box or any other boxes on CrateJoy click here and start your search.

 

iBeauty Box March 2018

iBeauty Box is a monthly box that sends you an assortment of cosmetics, skin care, lifestyle items.  They include full size and sample size products from brands you know and ones to discover.  You could get anything from nail care, hair care, skincare, jewelry, or candles to makeup.  I’ve been in the market for more of the beauty boxes that drew me into this for a while so when I saw this one I thought I’d give it a try.  Boxes start at $24.99 a month and go down very slightly if you subscribe for a longer term.  Shipping to Canada is included in that price.

They ship in a blue CrateJoy box with their label as a sticker on one side.  Inside I found everything packed in with squiggles to cushion it.

They have an info card included that tells you the products you received plus the value of those items.  It’s nothing fancy but it does the job it needs to.

20180330_184005

Sterling Silver Teardrop Necklace-$35.99

This is a super cute necklace.  I really like it and it’s something that I will wear.  It’s bright silver and I hope it doesn’t fade or tarnish.  It doesn’t say where this is from but it’s a good start to the box.

20180330_183859

Victoria’s Secret The One Luminous Cheek & Face Highlighter-$19.99

This is also fabulous!  It’s pale pink and shimmery and everything I love in a highlighter/blush.  I don’t often use a cream but I think I will start with this one.  It glides on smoothly and I really am in love with the shimmer.

20180330_183835

Stowaway Mini Lipstick in Cranberry-$10.00

I had thought I  would find this to be way too red for me but I kinda like it.  It glided on nicely and it’s a perfect red that works.  I’ve never heard of this brand but if this is an example of it I hope to get more.

20180330_183815

Colormates Eyeshadow Palette-$6.99

This is a 12 colour palette.  I am shocked to see it in this box even though it must be a drugstore brand because of the price.  All of these are shimmer shades and if you can’t tell, I really like glitter and shimmer so that makes this a win.

20180330_183758

Six Sided Nail File and Buffer-$5.99

This seems like a useful tool to have.  I have a couple of these as individual tools but nothing like this that incorporates all of the things into one.

20180330_183916

10 Professional Nail Lacquer-$5.99

There is no name on this but it’s colour number 443.  It’s a glorious shimmery purple that gave great coverage with just one coat.  This is another brand that is new to me.

I guess these are bonuses as none of them are listed on the card.  We have a Crystal Collagen Gold Powder Eye Mask, belif The True Cream, and Peter Thomas Roth Blemish Buffing Beads.  I think it’s great that they don’t include these in the value of the box but still toss them in to make us feel special that we got more things.

I am pleasantly surprised at the items I got in this box.  There were a few negative reviews but based on this box I am very happy.  They had a good mix of makeup and the skincare samples.  The value of the box this month is $84.95 plus sample packets.  That’s triple what I paid for the box, which is outstanding.  If you want to check this box out for yourself, you can head over to CrateJoy by clicking here.
