The box came with an information card detailing the items for March.  The theme was clearly St. Patrick’s Day!


Pot of Gold Glitter Pigment – Value $10

Orglamix is known for glitter pigments so I’m glad to have received at least one.  This is a beautiful color and the glitter particles are very fine.

Limerick Pure Mineral Eyeshadow – Value $12

This is the lighter, brighter green.  I was amazed at how well this applied to my arm (swatch below).  It has a lot of staying power, too.  I guess I am not used to working with loose pigments but these are making me happy and I will probably use more loose pigments now!

Eye-Rish Pure Mineral Eyeshadow – Value $12

This is a gray-green and it pairs very well with the other colors we received.  It has the same great formula as the Limerick shadow.

Catch a Leprechaun Cream Shadow + Liner – Value $18

I am terrible at applying eyeliner with a brush.  However, this makes for a nice cream shadow that’s sheer but also buildable, so that is how I will be using it.

Sorry for no links, by the way.  These don’t appear to be part of Orglamix’s regular stock.


Lime Aromatherapy Balm – Value $6.50

This also isn’t on their site (though there are dozens of other balm scents.  It’s kind of fun to get limited run and exclusive items. I do prefer lip balms I don’t have to dip my finger in, but I will probably use this at night when I have more control over what I’m touching before I touch my mouth.

Lucky Chick Essential Oil Rollerball – Value $18

This has two types of mint, plus eucalyptus and wintergreen.  I think this will be perfect right before bed (I kind of have a problem with clogged sinuses).  And even though it is basically colorless, the scent makes me think of the color green.


Shamrock Shake Lip Scrub – Value $12

I couldn’t find this on their site so I took the value from the information card.  I am almost finished with another lip scrub and needed a new one, so this arrived at the perfect time.  (I have been trying out a lot of crazy lip colors lately and some of them are drying or they stain.  Scrubs are great for getting them off and conditioning my lips.)


Here are swatches for the eye makeup.  I have a really thin coat of Too Faced Glitter Glue under the loose glitter and no primer under anything else.  And the cream shadow/liner was just applied with my finger.


So I don’t have Haley’s eyeshadow skills, but I wanted to show you at least one of the products in use.  I figured, there is no reason to restrict use of the loose glitter to the eyelids so I tried to use it on my nails.  Don’t judge – I probably should’ve done a bit more cleanup before this picture.  But I would say this worked quite well, especially considering this was my first time trying to use loose glitter on my nails.  (Under the glitter is Julep’s Dawn.  My middle finger has Julep Phoebe and the rest of my fingers have Zoya Honor on them.  I just used a regular topcoat to get the glitter to stick.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of $88.50 for the March Orglamix subscription box.  That is about triple the cost of the subscription and the formulas for the eyeshadows, in particular, are lovely.  Plus there is just something fun about loose glitter.  If you like loose eyeshadows, especially highly pigmented ones, this subscription would be great – the value is definitely there.

What do you think of the March 2016 Orglamix box?

  1. Ragan I love how your nails turned out!!! Thats such a great idea to use the loose glitter for that, no I wish I hadnt swapped the one I got in my ipsy a couple months ago. oh well! Thanks for such a great review!

  2. Ragan thanks for being brave and showing us the nail polish! It looks really cool and I’m sure it was fun for St. Pattys Day!

    • Thanks!

      P.S. It was a pain to get off. I had to SCRUB with acetone. (ON the other hand, I guess it had some serious staying power…)

      • Did you use the foil trick? Makes removing glitter polish so much easier! Just leave your cotton ball with polish remover on top of your nail, wrap a small piece of foil around it, then leave on for anywhere from 15-60 seconds. (It depends how glitter full the polish is) Remove foil, then wipe. Polish should come off easily with little to no scrubbing. If you’re careful with how you wrap and unwrap the foil, it can be reused for other fingers. I also usually cut the cotton ball in half or quarters since you only need enough to cover the nail.
