Makeup Look ft. Violet Voss Essentials Palette

 

This beautiful palette came in my September Boxycharm box! I like how it can be an everyday neutral palette but there are also rich jewel tones that can give you a variety of looks. All of the shadows are very pigmented. The shimmers are creamy and the mattes are smooth and both apply really nicely.

I used Dusty Rose in the crease, Cinnamon on the outer corner and smudged on the lower lash line, Gold on the inner part of the lid, Plum Berry on the outer part of the lid, and Cream on the inner corner and for my brow bone highlight. I paired this eye look with a Colourpop lippie stix in the shade “Frida.” I really liked how this whole look turned out. It just screams autumn to me!

BoxyVibes: April Boxycharm Review!

I love getting Boxycharm every month! This month was a really vibrant, fun, festival themed box. I don’t go to music festivals but you better believe I’ll be wearing all these fun vibrant colors when I take my toddler to the library! 😉

Brushes are something every makeup lover can’t get enough of, at least for me, so it’s great getting them from Boxycharm as opposed to buying them separately. Luxie Beauty brushes are great quality and really cute! This “Summer Daze” set comes with the #209 Large Shader, #245 Small Shader, and #512 Small Contouring brush and retails for $28.

Eyeshadow palettes are my weakness. Look how beautiful and summery this PUR Festival Pressed Pigment Palette looks!

This palette contains twelve shadows: mattes, shimmers, and pressed glitter pigments that are all gorgeous.

I like how there are some neutral tones, like the matte browns and shimmery coppers, but there’s also bright pops of color and of course, the pressed glitters, to create a bolder look! This palette retails for $36.

Next up is a lipstick from Kristofer Buckle. This is the shade “Bardot,” a beautiful nude/mauve shade that pulls a little brown on me but I LOVE it. It’s creamy and doesn’t dry my lips out. It’s a great go-to lipstick for when you need to look pulled together. It retails for $18.

I also received a Starlooks Ultra Gem Longwear Eye Pencil in the shade “Celestial.” This is really pretty and a fun way to add a pop of color to a look. It retails for $19.

The last item I received, and the only item in the box I don’t like, is the Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in the shade “Summer Haze.”  I did not swatch this product as I will probably give it away, but it’s a loose golden toned highlighter. I prefer pressed powder highlighters so I will not use this one. It retails for $27.

Boxycharm costs only $21 a month and you received 4-5 full size products each month. The overall value for my April box is $128! This is a great value and I will use and enjoy every product except for the loose highlighter.

Makeup Look and Palette Review-Pur Cosmetics Midnight Masquerade

Today I’m sharing one of my favorite fall themed makeup looks I’ve done so far this season using the Pur Cosmetics Midnight Masquerade Palette I received in my October Boxycharm Box!

 

Here are the swatches. You get six eyeshadows and four face products that can also double as eyeshadows! All in a small, travel friendly palette with a little mirror. Every shade is smooth and pigmented except for the matte brown eyeshadow; you can see in the swatch I had to work with it a little.

Pur Cosmetics is cruelty free and free of gross things like petroleum and parabens!

Now for the look!

Makeup details:

On the eyes:

Sneak Peek (matte brown) in the crease, Showtime (shimmery dark blue) on the outer portion of the lid, Mask Off (shimmery golden green) on the inner portion of the lid, Exposed (silver) on the inner corner and on the brow bone to highlight.

On the cheeks:

I mixed the two blush shades Hidden Secret and Reveal for my blush and used Twilight to highlight!

On the lips:

Becca Cosmetics and Chrissy Teigen Glow Lip Gloss in Malibu Soleil.

 

If you’re interested in trying Boxycharm, it’s $21 a month, and if you sign up before the end of October using my link and code- Whitn-QPNTHJXU  we’ll both get a Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion exfoliator!

Every month you receive 5-6 full sized products and it’s always an amazing value packed with awesome makeup and skin care products!

This palette is also for sale on the Pur Cosmetics website for $38.
