Vegan Cuts Makeup Box Winter 2018 Review
Each Vegan Cuts Beauty Box comes with an information card detailing the items for that month.
Let’s dive in!
Emani Prismatic Duo-Tone Lipstick in Bewitched, 0.10 oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $20.00
This duo colored lipstick is pretty cool! I always wear deep red tones during fall and winter, and this Bewitched color is my jam! I really appreciate that this formula is super hydrating and a satin finish. I try and avoid matte lipsticks because they are very drying for my lips. You can wear this lipstick 4 ways: each color alone, both mixed for a 3rd shade, or create an ombre effect! This lipstick lasted me at least 6 hours with the pigment intact and my lips feeling great.
Inika Long Lash Vegan Mascara, 0.27 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $33.00
I have been experimenting with vegan mascaras because I have sensitive eyes and wear contact lenses. Some of the more commercial brands really bother my peepers! I have yet to find the perfect vegan alternative, but I liked this mascara very much. It gave my lashes lift and volume and didn’t clump or flake off during the day. I prefer a more dramatic mascara in terms of coverage, but this is a solid choice that didn’t bother me in the least after all day wear.
Elate Cosmetics Creme Blush in Bliss, 0.03 oz. – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $29.00
Can we take a moment to appreciate this gorgeous packaging? This swivel bamboo compact is so unique! The cream blush inside is also pretty great! I have been trying to switch to cream blushes because they tend to have more staying power, but I often find they interact with my foundation in a less than ideal manner. This one worked just fine layered on top of my cream foundation as long as I was sure to finish both off with translucent powder! This also makes a great little lipstick and also an eyeshadow if you are into warmer tones like I am.
Mineral Fusion Stunning Eye Shadow Trio –FULL SIZE! Retail Value $26.99
This eyeshadow trio is so pretty and very wearable! I don’t generally wear eyeshadow but I appreciate having some more natural shades on hand for more special occasions. These shades are highly pigmented, have only a wee bit of fallout, and are very buildable.

BONUS: Pacifica Crystal Lit Moon Oil, 1 fl oz – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $22.00
So this amazing oil was actually a bonus add-on included this month. I really adore the Pacifica brand and have a couple of their oils in my arsenal already. This formula has lavender, quartz, and blue tansy, and it also has a beautiful and very subtle shimmer. My skin is super dry so I can apply this oil under my foundation without any trouble, but if you are more oily, try this formula out before bed to wake up with a dewy glow.
Verdict: This box has a retail value of $130.99 which is an incredible value for the $39.95 cost. I really loved all of these products and appreciated the variety and unique formulas! I also always appreciate when a box doesn’t inflate each item’s value on an item card. I honestly cannot wait for next quarter’s box because if this one is any indication, the curators spend a ton of time selecting truly great natural makeup for us to enjoy. Keep up the good work Vegan Cuts!
