The mini-magazine was the first thing I saw in the box.
This month’s mini-magazine features Tarte Cosmetics. This month’s theme is Just Peachy!
Aside from a welcome note from Sazan, they also included some cool recipes!
The booklet has 17 pages with articles that include the products in the box.
Every corresponding number of the product has a paired description and little comments or tips from Sazan.
I really wish the text was bolder – it’s a little hard to read.
There’s an article on how to do your brows perfectly! I find these tips really helpful.
We are getting a lot of items for $29.99. It’s exciting!
Everything in the July box!
Maybelline Master Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner ($5.60; $9.99 on the card) Winner of the Allure Best of Beauty in 2013, this precise liquid eyeliner is waterproof and smudge-proof. It also promises to last up to 12 hours because it has a highly pigmented formula.
It is suitable for sensitive eyes and those who wear contact lenses.
The eyeliner has an ultra-fine 0.4-millimeter brush felt tip for higher definition. It offers a continuous flow that provides smooth and even lines.
Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel Chocolate Coconut Collagen Mix ($2.91; $3.99 on the card) Protein helps the body put together the structures that make up every cell, tissue, and organ and helps the muscles heal up quickly. This collagen mix contains collagen hydrolysate from grass-fed cows which breaks down into individual amino acids, the building blocks of protein, that aids in absorption and digestion.
Aside from helping the body to build up from the inside, this collagen fuel also supports the connective tissue, hair, skin, and nails. The mix is also sugar-free, gluten free, dairy free, whey free and soy free, and paleo and primal friendly.
The recipe for Collagen Fuel Berry Crumble was included, but we got the chocolate flavor, so this wasn’t helpful.
NCLA Beauty Cheers Tool Kit In Gold ($16) I also got this travel size glittery gold rescue kit for manicure emergencies!
This kit includes beauty scissors, clippers, nail file, V-shaped push stick, and a rounded push stick.
SuperSmile Mini Professional Whitening System ($9) The set includes a whitening toothpaste in original mint and a whitening accelerator. The whitening accelerator lifts deep-set stains and quickens the whitening process. To use this whitening duo, all you need is a dry toothbrush. Place a pearl-size drop of both Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste and Professional Whitening Accelerator, then brush teeth in circular motions for two minutes, twice daily. This can last up to a month when used as directed.
Simple Skincare Skin Quench Sleeping Cream ($9.46; $9.99 on the card) Simple’s sleeping cream can smooth away roughness, tightness, and dryness by immediately restoring comfortable and supple skin, and instantly replenishes skin’s hydration levels
The formula is fast absorbing and non-greasy, it transforms dull and tired skin, making it look hydrated, revitalized, and refreshed!
Shea Moisture Sugarcane Extract & Meadowfoam Seed Silicone Free Miracle Styler Leave-In Treatment ($8.99; $12.99 on the card) An all-around hair treatment, it detangles, adds shine, nourishes, softens, smoothes, reduces frizz, and even cuts drying time for your hair. It also protects it from thermal and environmental damage. The formula contains sugarcane, meadowfoam seed oil, marshmallow root, and other botanicals that nourish and make this a great product for hair manageability. It comes in a spray container so it can be used easily.
Like most of the hair products in this box, I passed it along. They are usually for thick, curly hair and mine’s the complete opposite.
Tarte Cosmetics Arch Architect Brow Pencil Gel ($24) From Tarte Cosmetics, I got this brow pencil gel that has 2 ends, 1 for the angled pen, and a clear gel topcoat on the other with a spoolie.
You can glide the angled tip along the shape of your eyebrow to fill in sparse areas using short, hair-like strokes, then brush and set your brows with the brush-on clear gel topcoat.
Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Hair Mask ($9) Aside from the leave-in treatment, I also got another hair product in a form of a hair mask. This moisture healing mask contains Argan oil 7 formula that helps detangle, seal split ends, shines, enhances hair’s natural body, protects, and even prevents hair color fading. This is great for those who love to color their tresses and want it to last longer or just repair their hair after a summer of abuse.
Mellow Cosmetics Liquid Matte Lip Mini In Auckland ($8) This ultra smooth lip paint gives the lips a velvet-matte and high-pigmented finish. It comes in 13 trendy and bold shades, and we got this in the shade Auckland which is a nude rose. It has a long-wearing creamy formula that doesn’t dry up easily and suits all skin tones too.
It has a doe foot applicator to precisely apply the lip paint on your lips. It really feels comfortable on the lips and doesn’t turn crusty.
Appeal Cosmetics Luxurious Lipstick in Naked ($29.01, $29.99 on card) Aside from the liquid lip paint, I also got this bullet lippie that is highly-pigmented, creamy, and long lasting!
This rosy nude shade is one of the prettiest from this line, and the color is phenomenal. It is even hydrating there’s no need to put lip balm first to keep the lips moisturized!
This month’s Bless Box provides a variety of items and choices for my everyday beauty routine. I’m happy to get choices for makeup, hair, and even skincare items! They included 2 hair-loving products this month and I’m sure they’ll help out those with thick, luxurious hair in managing their tresses, but it was a miss for me. I also feel like Appeal and Mellow are brands that I only see in boxes (a la Manna Kadar, LaRitzy), and I’m not wowed by them. I’m also not super excited about a Maybelline item that won an award 5 years ago. I was underwhelmed by this box, even though it had an estimated $113 value.
