Right inside was a little postcard that said “Lost in Pretty” on the front.
Mini Sequin Basket – value: £15 / approximately $21.68 USD
This basket is handmade in Morocco! Unfortunately it’s just not my taste, and I also couldn’t get it to stand up for the life of me. Putting something in it helped a little but not completely.
The Pretty Jewelry Roll – value: $30
I’m using the value off of their info sheet for this because they don’t list a website or company name or anything – which honestly I find a little odd. They are so much about brand discovery and featuring artists and designers, etc., and in this item’s description they even say they “had the wonderful opportunity to meet the wonderful women who made [these jewelry rolls].” Even more that leaves me wondering “Okay… so who are they??”
That being said, this jewelry roll is pretty. I like the floral designs. Again, this isn’t an item I’ll use – this will get swapped!
Here’s a look inside the jewelry roll. It feels well-made and I think the zippers inside are really handy.
Cailyn Cosmetics O Wow Brush – value: $32
This is a really interesting item; apparently it’s a Korean beauty thing right now. The info card says it’s a brush designed to help blend and apply foundations (liquid or powder), primers, creams, etc., though I think it’s really made for foundations. It has short, soft haired bristles on its dome-shaped brush head. I tried it and it took a little getting used to, but I liked it’s alright. I don’t think it changed my life or anything, but I’ll give it a few more tries.
Triple C Clickie Selfie Remote in Rose Gold – value: $20
This is so pretty! It’s a handy little thing to have around. I also like how it has a little space to stick it on a keychain.
Here’s a closer look at the selfie remote.
Here’s a better look at the brush. It’s supposed to stand on its own (it does, though falls easily) and comes with a little slip-on cap to keep it clean.
Cailyn Cosmetics Dizzolv’it Makeup Melt Cleansing Balm – 50 ml, value: $24?
This is a great product! I’m happy to have discovered it. It’s a balm for removing your makeup. It works really well on my eye makeup, especially, but helps with my entire face. It feels oily right away but once you rinse your face that feeling goes away.
Cailyn Cosmetics Pure Ease Brush Cleaner – 50 ml?, value: $9
I’m happy with this brush cleaner, too. It works very well and very quickly. I did a few girls’ makeup for prom recently and used this in between girls to clean my brushes and it worked well.
Here’s a closer look at both these items. Looks like Cailyn Cosmetics is a new brand I like!
Umgee Kimono – value: $68
I think the print of this kimono is very pretty, but boho just isn’t my style. I also don’t think this particular kimono feels like an expensive, $68 kimono – the material feels light and stiff. However, like I said, the print is really pretty and I know many people out there will love getting this anyway.
Verdict: Last month’s Lost BLVD wasn’t my taste, and unfortunately this one isn’t really, either, but that’s just because of my personal taste. This time it’s because these items are very bohemian, which isn’t my style. The value adds up to $198, which is great! And I discovered a few new products I really like from a brand I’ll have to keep an eye out for.
