Of course I jumped on the opportunity to sign up for this box! I love my Vegan Cuts beauty box each month, and I am a huge makeup fanatic.
This was their first makeup box and here are my thoughts!
This Summer box contained 5 full size items. The value was over $100.
Pacifica Dream Big Lash Extending 7 in 1 Mascara
This was great to receive because it is my favorite mascara! It lengthens, adds volume and you can layer without clumping! This also has a lash serum so it is healthy for your lashes.
Juice Beauty Defining Eyeliner in Black
This eyeliner contains shea butter and cocoa butter and is packed with antioxidants. There is a classic pencil tip and the other side has a smudger. This has fairly good pigmentation, but, my eyes and skin are far too oily for this to stay or even show up. If I use a primer, then set it with powder, I can get this to work. It isn’t great on the water line since it just doesn’t have that staying power. If you are someone with normal or dry skin, not oily eyelids, and don’t tend to get runny eyeliner, this will work for you.
YourMinerals Eye Shadow in Brown Hypnotic
This is a loose shadow. It comes in a standard little jar with lid and sifter. The pigmentation on this is crazy good. You could use this wet or dry, both ways you would get a good result.
Something to note: if you follow @VeganCuts on Instagram you get a say in what colors upcoming boxes have. They hold votes and show swatches. This was one a while back and this was actually a color I voted for. It is very cool to see a company who really takes into consideration what their customer base prefers.
I love this color! Sparkly purple taupes are my absolute jam. It is a great color for throwing all over the lid.
Hynt Beauty Lip Gloss in Satin Nude
This is made from organic ingredients and is super luxurious feeling. It is not a sticky gloss and goes on very smooth and even. This smells like orange when you’re putting it on. The scent doesn’t stay, but that’s just something to note if that isn’t a scent you’re fond of.
This color is absolutely perfect, a warm metallic peachy nude. The packaging of this is very elegant looking, and the applicator is much like one you’d find on a liquid lipstick. I’ve been wearing this by itself, or over other lip products, and I love it! Because of all the oils and natural moisturizers, my lips actually feel better after using it.
Amalie Beauty Wink Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancer
Okay, so this is a great item to receive! Wink is a blend of natural oils that conditions, strengthens, and enhances your brows and lashes. There is a twist bottom and a brush applicator. You apply this to your lash line and brows at night before bed and gently massage into your skin. This contains castor seed oil, argan oil, and a ton of other nutrient rich oils. I’m excited to see if this yields results. I am always looking to get my natural lashes longer, and my brows need serious help. I’ll do a follow up post once I finish this product.
The box also came with a great ‘vegan beauty’ sticker!
Overall I am ecstatic about what came in this box! It is a little more expensive, but it is quarterly and you get full size items. The thing I was the least excited about is the eyeliner, but honestly everything else made up for it!
