Now, on to the items!
Benefit Dandelion Shy Beam – Retail Value $26
I had always associated highlighters with shimmer, so this shimmer-free highlighter definitely intrigued me!
This goes on pale pink with a completely matte finish. It’s a very subtle effect – great for a no-makeup makeup look. But here’s where it gets interesting – I tried it as an undereye concealer and OMG! No creasing, color-corrected my dark circles, stayed put all day and was the perfect based to just apply a little CC cream over. I definitely recommend trying this under your eyes!
Huda Beauty Mauve Obsessions Palette – Retail Value $27
This is my first Huda Beauty palette, and no surprise – the formulas are impressive. Great pigment, easy to blend, minimal fallout, and a good mix of shimmers and mattes.
Here is the palette swatched beneath the Shy Beam highlighter:
Pixi by Petra LashLift 188 in Beyond Black – Retail Value $18
This mascara has such a unique wand design. Inside the standard wand is a super thin one for precision application.
The design is smart and allows for easy application on the lower lashline. Unfortunately, the formula wasn’t perfect for me. I had issues with the formula clumping and while having two wands helped a bit with that, it wasn’t enough to make this a mascara I would buy in the future. (Looking at reviews online though, I feel like I’m the only person who didn’t love this formula, so I definitely recommend trying it if you received it.)
Purlisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer – Retail Value $45
This is one of my favorite items in the box. It’s lightweight, hydrating, absorbs quickly, and smells lovely! You can use it day and night, and it’s perfect pre-makeup.
F.A.R.A.H. Brushes 5-Piece Eye Perfection Set – Estimated Value $35
I love getting makeup brushes from ipsy – especially to go with a new eye shadow palette!
This set is made with soft, synthetic bristles, and a metallic silver finish. Pretty brushes that get the job done = I’m happy!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $151. I think that’s incredible for a $25 box that sends only full-size items! The only thing that was a miss for me in this box was the mascara. Everything else is great, and the Benefit Shy Beam is a game-changer for my undereye circles! (That item is worth the cost of the box alone for me!)
