Best #rainy day activity: rubber stamping! (And watching football. #gopackers!) I whipped up 2 new autumn-themed cards, and I think they turned out great! #rubberstampart

BeautyCon Box Fall Essentials 2016 Unboxing

So, I'm finally getting around to opening the latest BeautyCon box. This is the Fall Essentials box curated by Shayla and Angel. (Sorry, but I've never heard of either of these people.) I'm curious to see what they've put in here!



As always they include a list of all the items included in the box, which is really helpful!


The website says there's about $100.00 worth of products in here, which is a pretty good deal considering the annual subscription price (which is what I signed up for) is $99.00!


This first item, however, is something I will never ever use: a brozer lotion from Mystic Tan. I don't do fake tanning lotion or bronzers. I just don't I know real tanning is bad for you, but there's nothing like a REAL sun tan. IMHO.


The next item is something I will never use, either: fake eyelashes by iSlay Lashes. They're pretty, but I just don't do fake eyelashes. I think they would look ridiculous on me! Still, since I have them, I might as well try them out, right? A small tube of lash adhesive was also included, which is helpful since I don't have any!


I do like this next item and KNOW I will use it: a lovely dark brown eyeshadow from Milani Cosmetics. I love darker browns for my crease, so this is perfect for me!


The colour is really rich!


Oohh, I also love the makeup wipes from Simple! Aside from the Noxema make up remover wipes, these are my favourites! I'm putting this small sample size right in my travel kit!


Next up is a really pretty liquid lipstick from OFRA Cosmetics. I don't usually wear lipstick, but I'm starting to like these liquid lipsticks that are popular right now.


Oohh, this one is super pretty on! I like that it's subtle, but still has some rosey colour.


I'm looking forward to trying this lip enhancer from Jouer - it says it's suppoed to plump and moisturize your lips! As you can see in the photo above, I need help in both those areas!


Next up is a duo highlighter pencil from The BrowGal which looks exactly like the highlighter pencil I currently use from Anastasia Beverly Hills. Exactly. I guess that's okay, because it'll save me some money when the old one runs out!


This is a really nice makeup brush from Luxie Beauty. It's the Large Angled 504 Brush, for you make up brush connoisseurs out there!


The final few items are not cosmetics products, but are kind of fun. The first is a set of stickers with shoes, sunglasses, purses, and other fashion items.


Next is a super cute enamel pin in the shape of a lipstick!


Okay, this final item I actually had to look up online because I've never heard of this company, and there was no information on it in the box. They're Sugar Lips from Sugarfina. When I opened the package, it smelled kind of sweet, but kind of odd, too, and I really wasn't sure if they were candies, or mini soaps that looked like candies. I tried one, and it had a gummy candy consistency, but it didn't really taste good. I don't know if I just had soap on the brain, or what, but it kind of tasted soapy! I see on their website they are sweet and sour gummie candies, and the flavours are supposed to be watermelon, strawberry, and bubble gum. If I ended up biting into a sour bubble gum one, I think I can understand my confusion!


So, anyway, there's the box for fall. I actually liked a lot more of the products than I initially thought I would, and I'm excited to try a few of them! Overall, if you are someone who is really into makeup (and know who some of these "gurus" are!), you might enjoy getting these seasonal boxes. I linked the website above, so you can check them out for yourself. For me, I believe I have the Winter box left, and then my subscription runs out. I don't think I'll be renewing it. There are a few things in each box I've used and/or liked, and a lot of things I would never use, so I don't think this is really worth it for me. It's been fun to try, though! I hope you're having a great week, and I'll see you next time! Cheers!
