Slay Glam Box February 2020 Review
Slay Glam sends an info card each month with an itemized list of what’s in your box, including retail values.
If you follow @slayglambox on Instagram, the box curator enables subscribers to choose certain items each month by DMing or commenting your item choice; I love this feature! There weren't any special options this month, but there is usually one or two items you're able to customize.
Manna Kadar Lip Library - Retail Value $24
This kit is awesome! I love the array of colors, and the shine is fantastic. Each tube has a sweet, cakey flavor, and the color payoff is fab. I always see this brand in subscription boxes, but I was never wowed by any of the products until now. This formula didn't dry down completely, leaving a glossy finish, and when it wears off of your lips, it leaves you with a pretty stain.
Here are all of the colors from top to bottom: All of Me, All of You, Lucky, Pinot Noir, Pretty Smart, Rosette, Shae, Sienna
Slay Glam Box x Rasha B. Cosmetics Romance Me Eyeshadow Palette - Listed Value $27
This palette has the perfect color story for a romantic on Valentine's Day; it contains several different finishes so you can create countless looks. I thought the metallics performed well, but the mattes required some extra help. The last shade is a pressed glitter with a chunky, mousse-like texture, which helps it adhere to the skin a little, but I would definitely still recommend using a glitter glue.
Here are all of the shades swatched as they appear in the palette.
Sormé Treatment Cosmetics Smearproof Lipliner - Retail Value $9.50
Lipliner is a step I always forego, but every time I use one I remember how vital it is for a long-lasting lip look. This color is a classic your-lips-but-better shade, and for a matte, it has an impressively soft glide to it. I put a layer on my bare lips, and after blending, it didn't budge.
Sormé Treatment Cosmetics Limited Edition Satin Eyeliner - Listed Value $18
I love chunky eyeliners; they make the perfect foundation for eye shadow, or you could just use them by themselves if you want a look that lasts. This warm brown shade is very flattering and brings out my eye color, which is hard to find for brown eyes. It has a very soft texture and blends like a dream.
Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Flirt Baked Highlighter - Retail Value $14
I was shocked at how pigmented this highlighter is, especially since "baked" products typically have a milder color payoff. This highlight could have beamed me straight up to outer space, but I mellowed it out with some powder foundation. This rose gold beauty is a highlight that accentuated the texture and pores on my cheeks, but after I blended it in it looked much better.
Swatches from top to bottom: Sormé Lipliner, Sormé Eyeliner, DLS Flirt Highlighter
Here is the look I created using most of the makeup products from this month’s Slay Glam Box. I used a few of the pink metallic shades in the palette to create a gradient look, and in the first photo, I was just wearing the lipliner; in the next photo, I am wearing the Manna Kadar gloss stain in Rosette.
Verdict: This month's Slay Glam Box was another hit! I feel I received a ton of product this month, again, for under $25! I love the Manna Kadar Lip Library and the Sormé eyeliner is a gorgeous shade I know I'll use up. This subscription sends a lot of brands that are under the radar, and I would recommend it for anyone trying to beef up their makeup collection.
