My Favorite Beauty Subscription Discoveries (April-June 2015)

It’s that time again!  I love looking back over the past few months of beauty subscriptions and singling out the products that really stood out to me. .

One of my favorite things about subscriptions is being introduced to new products and new brands and trying new things.

So here are my favorite products from the last few months!

1. Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos: April Birchbox

This was the very first product I’ve tried from Cargo.  And I must say, I LOVE it!  I’ve been using this almost daily and it is just the perfect summer shade!  I mean look at this swatch!

Gorgeous!  I will definitely be purchasing a full size (if this sample ever runs out!)  It is very pigmented and will last forever.  I lightly dab my brush in and then tap off the excess.  That’s all it takes!

I reviewed this product awhile ago and will leave the link to that here.

2. Beauty Protector Protect & Oil: April Birchbox

Another Birchbox win!  This was my first product from Beauty Protector.

I love how this oil moisturizes my hair without leaving it heavy or greasy.  I use a small dab of product and focus it mostly on the ends of my hair.  It also has an amazing, very subtle sweet scent and it cheers me right up!

Again, this sample will last me a long time since I use so little at a time.

3.  Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette: April Boxycharm

When I found out this palette was going to in everyone’s April Boxycharm I literally squealed in excitement!  Everyone received the first Revealed palette in December and I’m still hoping we will receive the third one sometime in the future!

The shades are all stunning and beautiful and the pigmentation is fantastic!  There are some shades that are a little powdery and have more fall out, but overall it’s a really great palette.

4. Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish in “Sunset Tower”: May Boxycharm

I usually don’t get super excited about receiving nail polish in my subscriptions.  But this color…..oh my goodness!  It is just gorgeous!

Again, this is a new brand to me and I’m so glad I was introduced to it!  I love the formula and the fact that it is 5-free as well as eco and vegan friendly.

5.  Pixi by Petra Beauty Bronzer in Summertime: May Ipsy

I am quickly falling more and more in love with Pixi products!  Each one I’ve tried is better than the last.

This bronzer is perfect for warming up your skin and creating a nice summer glow.  I’ve been using it everyday!  It does have a little sheen to it, but you can barely see it once it’s applied on the face.

6.  Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow: June Birchbox

So far I’ve only used this once.  But I was really pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it.  It hydrated my skin without making me oily and made my skin look so glow-y and healthy without looking orange.

It is a teensy bit dark for my skin right now but will match me perfectly in the summer.

It contains light-reflecting pigments that infuses skin with radiance.

It is hypoallergenic, gluten-free, perfume-free, and oil-free which is great for those with sensitive skin.

This is the best bronzing bb cream I’ve found yet and I am planning on purchasing the full size.

7.  ncLA Nail Lacquer in Volume IV: June Boxycharm

IMG_9116

I’ve tried other polishes from this brand before and they never cease to amaze me.  Again, this is a 5-free polish that has amazing pigmentation.  I can usually go a week before any chipping starts.  This shade is just stunning and I’ve already received numerous compliments!  I’ve never owned a shade like this before.

I will definitely be checking out other shades in this nudes line.

Final Score:

Birchbox: 3

Ipsy: 1

Boxycharm: 3

It’s a two way tie!  I usually love Ipsy more, but the last few months have definitely been sub-par for me.  Birchbox and Boxycharm have introduced to me some AMAZING products!

Have a beautiful and wonderful day you guys!

xoxo Lizzie♥
