Boxy Charm / Jaunary's Beauty Box

Its Boxy mail time and this month’s BoxyCharm theme is Rock 2018! This box will have you feeling the rock and roll soul. If you aren’t familiar with BoxyCharm it is a monthly beauty subscription box of $21 and they include 4-5 full size items valued at $150+.
The items included in this month’s box were face primer, eyebrow pencil, eye shadow palette, cheek palette, and lip plumper. I will review each product below, tell you more information about each of them, and swatch them. (Disclaimer: this review is NOT sponsored by Boxy Charm, I bought this with my own money, all opinions are mine. I'm sharing because "Sharing is Caring.")
Dr. Brandt: Pores No More Luminizer Primer Retails at $38
This primer delivers a natural radiant glow while blurring pores and imperfections for a beautifully illuminated flawless complexion. A few months I got to try Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator from October’s Boxy Charm and I absolutely loved it. I was pretty excited to see this brand again and this primer doesn’t disappoint. Let’s just say I’m a fan of Dr. Brandt.



It Cosmetics: Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil Retails at $24
Developed with plastic surgeons, IT Cosmetics’ #1 best-selling, award-winning eyebrow pencil is infused with brow-enhancing biotin, lecithin, saw palmetto, nettle, green tea, antioxidants, grape seed, and vitamins A, B5, C, and E. Plus proprietary brow power technology to give you your  most beautiful natural-looking brows-even if you have none at all. Its universal transforming shade adjusts to all hair colors based on pressure, its exclusive oval tip mimics the look of real hair and it includes a built-in grooming spooley brush for a polished look. It does take a bit of practice to perfect your brow technique, from the way you do your strokes, and how much pressure you put. Like they say practice makes perfect.
Swatch Time: 




Crown Pro: Glam Metals Palette Retails at $25
Rock your look with this eye shadow palette. These shades are highly pigmented and ultra blendable. I really like the metallic colors they included in the palette. They are all unique shades from silvers, bronze, gold, and of course smokey. If you want an even more intensifying look just simply wet your brush and you’ll get a shadow foiling. You can create a numerous looks with these nine shadows. The packaging is really cool, I especially like the guitar mirror it reminds me of guitar hero lol! 

Swatch time:

 (Top: Punk, Rock On, The Wicked)
(Top: Wild Thing, Rebel, Glam Rock)
(Top: Black Metal, Heavy Metal, Pop Rock)



PUR The Complexion Authority: Bronze and Brighten Cheek Palette Retails at $34
This is the perfect on the go highlight, bronzer, and blush! This palette has three skin perfecting powders to create an effortless and sun-kissed glow on every skin tone. Featuring PUR’s fan favorites “Afterglow” and “Mineral Glow” along with a new blush shade “Blushing Glow.” I just recently started experimenting with highlight so it is really cool to have a trio palette and not worried about carrying all the extras. A must have if you are a mom on the go like myself just throw this little bad boy in your bag and you’re ready to go! I also liked the fact that it includes a mirror because sometimes it's hard to find a mirror in your purse. The palette itself reminds me of the Neapolitan ice cream you almost want to eat it lol. It is really pigmented so a little goes a long way. Just blend blend for a more natural look.

Swatch Time:
(Afterglow, Mineral Glow, Blushing Glow)



Grande Cosmetics: Grandelips Hydrating Lip Plumper Retails at $27
This lip plumper is infused with Volulip and Hyaluronic Acid, which instantly improves lip volume within 3-5 minutes, while hydrating dry areas. Results may vary. The shade I got was Midnight Purple. It is a glossy finish, not one to wear glossy lipstick. However, who doesn’t want GRANDE Lips, without the painful needles? This really sounded promising and I was a bit spectacle at first but after trying it I can see the difference. One thing I do have to complain was that it was tedious to get the applicator to work. Also the applicator itself is too rubbery which makes it hard to glide smooth on my lips. After applying it, I felt tingled after 2 minutes which to me might be an indicator that the plumping process had begun. I get the idea behind this but it’s not something I’m too keen on. Because if you are looking for fuller lips you have to use this product religiously the good thing is they offer a ray of color options and even clear. I’m a matte type of gal so I probably wouldn’t wear it too much.
Boxy Charm definitely started 2018 with a bang! I’m so ready to Rock 2018 with these amazing products. My eyebrows will be on fleek with the IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil. I have to admit my eyeshadow palette collection has grown tremendously, however the Glam Metals Palette is unique, because I don’t own any duplicates. Overall amazing products and I can’t wait to play with them more. Now for the total value of this box….Drumroll please….$148 not bad at all!! Want to get your own BoxyMail? Sure you do, sign up below and start getting amazing products each month it’s like your Birthday every month. Woot Woot. Hope this review has been helpful, stay tune for next month’s Boxy Charm.

Keep Me Safe Organics / Skin Care Review

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.
