Slay Glam Box March 2019 Review
Slay Glam Box sends an info card each month with an itemized list of what’s in your box, including retail values.
Not included in the info, but I was able to choose two of the items I received this month (the shade of lipgloss or liquid lip, and a choice between loose or pressed powder). If you follow @slayglambox, the box curator enables subscribers to choose certain items each month by DMing, commenting or e-mailing their picks by a certain date.
JCat Beauty Blush Me Cheeky Palette – Retail Value $12.99
Now is not the time for indecisiveness with this palette! You get 8 choices of blush with this huge palette ranging from peachy neutrals to hot fuschias, and there is a shade for everyone here.
These powders are pigmented, which isn’t necessarily a good thing when it comes to blush, but I found that picking the powder up on my brush then tapping the excess product off worked perfectly on my pale complexion. This huge palette is more blush than anyone could ever use up in a lifetime, but I really like having color options and the big pans make it easy to dip your brush into.
Here are all the blushes swatched from left to right.
Mirabella Chroma Eyeshadow Palette – Retail Value $50
The price of this palette has me shook! It is an interesting color scheme that I don’t think I would have gravitated towards but will definitely be a handy palette this season.
These powders are soft with a mostly satin finish and one champagne shimmer shade. I applied these with a stiff packing brush to get a soft pastel look perfect for Spring that lasted all day. See swatches below!
Sorme Eyeliner in White 23 – Retail Value $13.66
White eyeliner applied to your inner rim is great for making your eyes look bigger, brighter and more awake. I also love to apply it mixed in with my eye primer to brighten my lid, making shadows pop. This liner was pretty rough on the lid, but it worked its magic on my inner rim. I prefer using a flesh-toned liner for this since white can look too doll-like and unnatural, but this white liner was subtle and didn’t show up too brightly.
Rasha B. Cosmetics Lipgloss in Skinny Dip – Retail Value $14
Recently I’ve been obsessed with a shimmery, sparkly lip, making this gloss the perfect pick for me this month. I love this as a topper to a berry lip, and it even looked great dabbed in the middle of a natural lip for a little shine and dimension. It applies without any stickiness to report, but when I rub my lips together, I can feel a little texture from the glitter (not a deal breaker for me). This gloss is also formulated with mineral oil, which is a controversial ingredient to some, so if that’s something you try to avoid, I’d opt out.

Luna by Luna Loose Translucent Powder – Retail Value $22
I always use a translucent powder to set my foundation and concealer, but for someone with dry skin, I am a pretty picky consumer. I love how this powder applied, so silky smooth with a hint of white to brighten, but this made my under eye so dry after a few hours of wear. I would use this in a pinch to set my t-zone since it was so soft and somewhat blurring, but there are so many hydrating options out there that I may pass this one on. I also wonder if this would work for deeper skin tones since this powder has a white cast.
Being True Retractable Powder Brush – Retail Value $19.87
Brushes like this are so convenient for powdering on-the-go. I really like the sleek green packaging as well as the retractable metal sheath that protects the bristles of this brush, preventing them from getting pinched when you close the lid. This brush is really soft and is the perfect size for powder foundation or bronzer application.
Here is a look I came up with using all of the products this month. I like the Springy pastels paired with a vibrant flush and a sparkly lip!
Verdict: Slay Glam Box caught me by surprise! This new box delivered a total value of $132.52, including two palettes and various new-to-me products this month, all for under $25. I really like the colors they sent out this month as well as the array of brands being sampled. The only product that didn’t work for me would be the translucent powder, but I am excited about my lifetime supply of blush and Springy shadows.
