Each month Sweet Sparkle includes an info card with an intro to the theme, products sampled and their retail values. This month’s theme is “Copper Queen” featuring 5 makeup products.

Phase Zero Coconut Eyeshadow – Retail Value $12.76 (£10), Listed Value $7.35

The theme of this month’s box is “Copper Queen” so this copper shadow must be its star item.. and for good reason! The pigmentation and longevity are great! I used this as an all over wash of color and loved the dimension. The application was simple; I just applied directly to my eyelid with the doe foot applicator then blended it out with a brush, which took me about 20 seconds per eye.

Perse Sheer Glow Blush in Cinnarose – Retail Value $11.99 (Found here for $9.99), Listed Value $15

Cinnarose is exactly the color it sounds, a beautiful warm rose. This powder is sheer and applied gorgeously for a warm natural flush. Buildable blushes are my very favorite to use daily, especially a sunkissed color like this one.

Bang Beauty Felt Tip Precise Eyeliner in Black – Retail Value $20

As far as liquid liners go, this is your run of the mill felt tip pen. It wasn’t the easiest to control, so it was no match for my clumsy application skills. I typically go for a matte black instead of a somewhat shiny finish, too, so it isn’t an ideal product for my needs. I wore this liner all day long and didn’t have any problems with smudging or wearing off, even at the corner of my eye, so for this, I give it 3 stars.

Sweet Sparkle Makeup Box Review April 2019 - Hikari Glitter Mask Front TopSweet Sparkle Makeup Box Review April 2019 - Hikari Glitter Mask Back Top

Hikari Glitter Mask – Retail Value $11

Hikari is a brand I see in beauty subscription boxes all the time. I don’t remember ever making a connection with any of their products, and this mask is no different. Peel off masks are fun in theory, but realistically, I like my skincare to be quick and easy. I started to apply an even layer and was totally thrown by the perfumy fragrance. I stopped at my forehead because even then I was overwhelmed. It dried slowly, but when I finally got to peel it off, I was able to get most of it off in one satisfying, glittery sheet. My skin felt soft after removing the mask, but it is definitely not worth the headache.

LA Girl Metal Liquid in GLM – Retail Value $7, Listed Value $5

I call this lippie confidence in a tube! This metallic red is vibrant and flattering and has a reasonable price tag, too. I always start out with a little balm on my lips; after wearing this lip for a few hours, I didn’t have to touch up for coverage or moisture at all. This is unheard of in a liquid lip for me and so exciting! Sometimes metallic lips can pronounce fine lines, but this looked and felt great all day. A total win!

Here is the look I came up with using all of the products from this month’s box – I’m loving the colors this month!

Verdict: Sweet Sparkle sent a fun box to explore! This month delivered an estimated $62.75 in products and I’m so glad they sampled some great colors and a variety of makeup items to play with. I really enjoy the blush, lip, and eyeshadow, which made this subscription worth the $24.50 cost for me this month.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No. Your first box will be the current month’s box. So if you sign up in the month of May, you will get the May box, etc.

  1. Great review! Do you happen to know the color of the liquid lip? You had listed GLM but all of the colors start with GLM then they have words like Prism or Treasure….. thanks for your help I love that color!

    • Whoops! It is GLM 864 👍🏻

  2. La girl products are amazing but I’ve never tried their liquid lipsticks. After seeing that shade on you though I want it! Lol looks so pretty and they’re in my heart as much as wet n wild now with affordable drugstore. Love their powder foundation and blushes

  3. What beautiful colors. That is such a great look on you!

  4. Looks.like a great box…
