Teri Miyahira Aspire Pressed Blush – Value $38

teri-miyahira-october-2016-017

This is a bold pink, and the pigment is great, but I could still use it sparingly and get just the barely-there pink blush I prefer.

Teri Miyahira Dream Pressed Eyeshadow – Value $28

This is just as pigmented as the blush, and it feels like silk going on – I’m seriously impressed with these pressed powder formulas!

It also has a lovely hint of shimmer.

Here are both pressed powders swatched:

Teri Miyahira Eye Pencil Brush 09 – Value $20

Teri Miyahira Medium Eye Blending Brush 10 – Value $24

This brush is for all-in-one lid/crease application and general blending.

Teri Miyahira Smoky Eyeliner Brush 15- Value $16

This brush can be used for applying gel eyeliner to top lashes or blending out a smoky eye with eyeshadow.

Verdict: This box has a retail value of about $152. These are premium makeup prices, but I am very impressed with the formulas, and definitely could see these products retailing for the prices listed. Of course, the best thing about this subscription is that you get all the products for $39 instead of $152!

I’m impressed with the quality of the product, the value, and I appreciate that Teri Miyahira is so ingredient-conscious. If you are looking for a high-quality natural and/or vegan makeup line, I recommend this subscription!

  1. LMAO I would never spend that money money every month for a brand I’ve never heard of, for hot pink blush and purple eye shadow. wow.

  2. I just wanted to leave this comment in hopes it will help others avoid the problems I’ve been having with this business. I hope this helps at least one person because if I had heard of anyone having problems cancelling, I would never have signed up.

    I signed up for this after not hearing much about it, but thought it would be okay since Teri Miyahira is associated with Petit Vour, which I love. I tried it out for two months, but when I tried to cancel, my e-mails were ignored for almost a week. I finally got one e-mail back, asking if I wanted to put my subscription on hold. I e-mailed them back and said no, I wanted it cancelled, and was ignored again. I had to call my bank and try to get it resolved that way because they ignored my e-mails up until the 24th of the month (according to their FAQ page, you have to e-mail them to say you want it cancelled before the 25th of the month). They don’t have a phone number, just an e-mail address for customer support.

  3. Yay, so happy you are reviewing this one. Ok so my take on this is that if you are in the conventional makeup market than this is a high priced sub (because everything is sourced in China) BUT (underline) if you are looking for green beauty, cruelty free, vegan, and an extreme attention to ingredients than this box is a phenomenal deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I agree. I’ve been getting this sub since the beginning. I am very pleased with the products. All of the products are highly pigmented, easy to blend and very versatile. They are also dye free!

    • opps I meant that conventional makeup is sourced in China which makes it much cheaper!

    • My issue isn’t really with the price itself…I purchase primarily green and cruelty free, so understand that the prices will be higher…and I sub to several other clean beauty subs at this or higher pricepoints. My personal issue is that with makeup not being a one-size-fits-all product…ie the color that works on one person may be horrendous on someone else’s coloring…for me it doesn’t make sense to spend $39 monthly to receive items that may quite likely not work for my skin tone. If color options were offered, (ie choose between 2 or 3 colors) I’d be interested.

  4. What a pretty sub. The packaging and the products. Its a bit expensive and I always wonder if beauty products are made in China. Those brushes are fabulous.

  5. Urban Decay’s eyeshadow is $19 and NARS blush is $30. There is no way that those are accurate retail prices. The makeup brushes are on Amazon are $10 for a set. I hate when boxes over inflate prices.

  6. I appreciate the commitment to vegan makeup options. That being said, however, this is WAY overpriced! $38 and $28 for single blush/eyeshadows, in cheap looking plastic containers is a HUGE overvaluation. For $39 a month, I would expect to have color choices…neither of the colors they sent are ones I would wear (and I actually can’t wear blush at all as I already have naturally pink cheeks…), and I would be really bummed if I’d spent the money on this. As for the bonus brushes…a nice touch, but vegan brushes are a dime a dozen these days, so that’s not an enticement to me. I wish Teri Mihayara the best in her endeavor, but I think in order to be successful with this, she’s going to need to play around with how this sub works, because I don’t see it being viable in its current form.

  7. Thank you for doing a review of this Liz! I have always been intrigued by this box, because Teri is involved with Petit Vour ( which I flipping love). Please keep reviewing this box!

  8. I subscribed for a little while and I was very impressed with the quality of the product, plus the service was phenomenal but it’s a little pricey for a make up subscription. The brushes were a bonus, not something that is included in their normal subscription. I do love the fact that they are a vegan company

    • I also subscribed for 2 or 3 months in the Spring & early Summer, and I thought the products I received were extremely high quality & very innovative, and the packaging was beautiful (the products I received had glass packaging). I was really impressed with the liquid pigment & highlight bottles I received. The size was awesome (at about 1oz), and not even a full drop is needed, so they will last a very long time, and can be used for many things like lips, cheeks, and eyes. Also, another month I received powder products in roller ball packaging that could be used for either eyes or cheeks. They were beautiful products, and high quality formulas. She also usually includes at least one skincare item (at least for the boxes I received).

      I’m happy to see MSA reviewing this box, and I’m looking forward to hopefully seeing future reviews! 🙂

  9. Wow, that seems like some pretty significant over valuing but that’s just IMO. For me personally, when I see the generic black plastic containers like Be a Bombshell uses, it automatically detracts from the value in my mind no matter how good the formula might actually be.

    • Agreed. I’m always weary of new brands as a lot of them purchase generic Made in China products and brand them as their own.

      • Oh, I should have thought to include this in the review – the makeup is made in the USA. 🙂
