Pure Cosmetics The Essentials Palette – Value $60
I’ve sampled Pure Cosmetics before, and in general I like their formulas, but I’ve never see a palette this big!
This palette includes 6 eyeshadow colors, 2 blushes, a lip gloss, a mascara, 2 lipsticks, a concealer/eye primer, and a black eyeliner powder.
But wait, there’s more!
We also have a bronzer, a finishing powder, a brown eyeliner pencil, a lip liner pencil, and brushes for lip lipstick, blush, eyeliner, and eyeshadow!
Here is the first round of swatches (this palette is a 2-arm-swatch type of kit!):
First up, we have 6 eyeshadows and the two blushes beneath. The pigment is pretty great though out, and all the colors are very wearable/neutral for me. (The eyeshadows include a mix of shimmers and mattes, too.)
Swatched in this order: Lip liner, eye liner, two lipsticks, concealer/eyeshadow base, eyeliner powder, lipgloss, translucent powder, and bronzer.
(As you can see from the swatch, the translucent powder isn’t really translucent. It has a nice matte finish, and I could blend it in easily, though.
In general, I’m very impressed with this kit. I could pack this, my foundation and concealer, and be good to go. (I’d probably still pack my tarte mascara, though!) This mascara was pretty good. I was able to apply multiple layers without any clumping issues, and it gave me a nice, natural look. (Not recommended if you prefer a dramatic lash, though.)
This 3 oz travel candle has a burn time of 10-20 hours. The scent is like nothing I own (My candle collection is mostly vanilla, lavender, or lemon) but I’m digging it! The lime speaks to my love of citrus, and the tomato is an unexpected combination.
(And bonus points for lovely packaging!)
Londontown Kur Protective Top Coat – Value $18
I can always use a high-gloss shine top coat, so I was happy to see this in the box. The most impressive thing about the formula is the drying time, though. My nails were good-to-go in under a minute!
Plum Island Soap Co Orange Hand Butter – Value $8.75
More citrus scents! And a new-to-me brand! This hand butter is rich cream made with all natural ingredients, including olive oil and beeswax. It’s very moisturizing, but it didn’t leave my skin greasy, and the subtle sweet orange scent is perfection!
Jessie Steele Classic Tote Bag – Value $30
(Subscribers will receive one of several patterns/designs.)
This pattern isn’t really my style, but it is black, so that’s something!
The material is 100% cotton, so it’s machine washable. (Perfect for a resuable grocery bag.)
There’s an interior pocket, plus two exterior pockets. And it’s very sturdy for a lightweight bag.
I’ve been using this as my catchall bag for everything in the car – and it is perfect.
This credit-card sized comb fits in your wallet, and the flip-side has a mirror:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $142! I think that is fantastic for a $40 box! Everything is super usable for me, too. So far, Sugarbash has really delivered on high-value boxes – I would recommend this box if you are looking for a women’s lifestyle box!
