Vegan Cuts just launched a quarterly makeup box! This box includes 4 or more FULL SIZE vegan makeup products inspired by the season. This box ships worldwide (shipping to the US is free!) and shipped mid-July. This is the first makeup box, and I’m really excited to see what’s included. I stayed spoiler-free, which was hard!

Pineapples!

The product card clearly outlines the products included as well as prices. And of course, tag your photos on social media to win a free box! The values are really impressive, but are they true to the quality of items? Let’s dig in!

Tucked under the info card was a cute sticker, which I’ve plastered onto my computer tower along with all my other big stickers.

These are definitely all full-size items, wow! My eye was immediately drawn to the product that has unicorns on it!

Pacifica Beauty Dream Big Lash Extending Mascara ($16) Okay, first of all, we need to talk about the packaging — this mascara tube has UNICORNS on it! I’m way too excited about that. This mascara uses plant fibers for length you can build and build until your lashes are the length you like. The brush is really cool — you apply your first coat with the brush in its ‘expanded’ form, and then twist the cap to shrink/squish the brush until the bristles are closer together to add extra length.

I tried to get a good shot of the brushes but it was hard to focus! Here’s the long version of the brush for the first coat. The bristles are more spread out to help apply the colour to the roots of the lashes.

And here it is in the short position, where the bristles are closer together to help add length.

Juice Beauty Defining Eyeliner ($16) I’ve only recently started using Juice Beauty’s skincare, and I was excited to try their makeup as well! This black eyeliner applies smoothly to my lids and there’s a smudger on the end to blend if you like that effect. It’s definitely not a waterproof eyeliner — it’s pretty hot out, and I found that there was some transferring to the top of my lid because I’m constantly sweating. (Canadians don’t handle the summer well, okay?)

Your Minerals Glistening Grey Eye Shimmer ($23) This is a loose mineral eyeshadow that can be used wet or dry. I’m awful with loose eyeshadows (it always ends up all over my glasses) but I’ve been getting more into them lately as they often pop up in my boxes. I swatched it below so you can see the different effects!

Hynt Beauty Lip Gloss in Pearly Rose Pink ($18) I love the colour of this lipgloss! It applies smoothly and has a citrus scent to it. It’s formulated with healthy oils and shea butter to keep lips moisturised.

Wink Lash & Brow Oil ($40) Wow, this one product is the cost of the entire box alone! This is a natural lash/brow enhancing oil to make them appear full and healthy. My brows are seriously sparse so I’m looking forward to giving this a try. Each Wink pen contains enough for 60 days.

The summer makeup box had a value of $113! We were sent five full-size items and they were all great quality. In addition to Juice Beauty (which I was already familiar with) I got to try items from four other vegan cruelty-free makeup lines and I’m grateful for the opportunity to do so, as I really liked everything. My favourite item would have to be the mascara — I’m finding that natural/vegan formulas don’t irritate my eyes like normal mascaras have been doing lately.
