Now, on to the items!
Make Up For Ever Artist Everywhere Pencil in Wherever Walnut 606 – .7 g Value $9
This is half the size of the full-size version! The color is great for a nude/pink lip for me, and it wears down nicely, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Doucce Precision Eyeliner in Blue – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $22
Wow! This color is bold and the pigment is intense! And even more importantly, this eyeliner stays put!
Here it is swatched beneath the lip liner:
I’m used to getting mostly black eyeliners in subscription boxes, so this was a nice change of pace!
Feel Harmony Rose Petal Facial Mask – 1 oz Value $16.18
This is a hydrating gel mask. Just apply a thin layer and let it sit or 10 minutes, then rinse to get a dose of moisture. It’s gentle, subtly scented with rose, and very hydrating. (Allure recommends storing this in the fridge for a cooling sensation.)
Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm – Deluxe Size! (Update Value $15.35)
This lip balm is moisturizing, gives your lips a subtle shine, and there is no stickiness! Plus it has a light, citrus flavor that I love!
Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil – 7.5 ml Value $27.50
(This is half the size of the full-size version!)
This is a retinol oil that is designed to boost the look and feel of skin plumpness, while improving the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for visibly younger-looking skin. Most retinol products aren’t oils, so this is a nice change, and I’m happy to report that it was gentle on my skin.
I’ve had good success with other Sunday Riley products, so I’m hopeful that by the time this bottle is empty, my skin will be looking better!
Ouai Leave In Conditioner – 25 ml Value $2.79
This leave-in conditioner has the signature Ouai scent – it’s almost like hair perfume! The formula is light enough that it didn’t weigh down my hair, and it helped add moisture and fight frizz.
Derma E Sun Protection Mineral Powder SPF 30 – 1.25 g Value $2.86
First, a word of caution! Be careful pulling off the inner sticker:
I ended up pulling off the lid sifter entirely and well… I am currently covered in it. I still managed to save some to test, though! This is a fine powder that is perfect for setting makeup – it goes on sheer. And you get the added bonus of SPF. (Allure still recommends using a cream sunscreen as well, though, to ensure full coverage.)
Olay Regenerist Whip – 15 ml Value $8.53
(This is a bonus item!) I am always drawn to “whipped” beauty creams – something about the light-as-air texture is so appealing! And this one doesn’t disappoint. It also gave my skin a smooth, matte texture that was perfect for makeup application.
And this month, subscribers will also receive a coupon code for $20 off any Bauble Bar purchase:
Valid on a full-priced product only. Expires 8/31/18. Cannot be combined with other offers. Excludes gift cards.
Let me know what you are planning to use your code on! (Right now I’m thinking about personalizing an iPhone case!)
Verdict: This box has a value of about $110.36. I think that’s an amazing value! (I’m already thinking of buying a second box!) There were so many items in this box, and the sizes were great, too. I definitely recommend grabbing the July box if you haven’t already!
