America the Beautiful - Boxycharm July 2014

My favorite box arrived in the mail today making my day off just perfect! Hope you enjoy the review because I love this box!!!!

As you can tell from my title, the theme for this month's box was America the Beautiful! 

Here is the first look:

The first product was pur~lisse pur~protect SPF 30 moisturizer. I just ran out of my daily moisturizer two days ago so this full sized product is greatly appreciated. The retail value of this product is $55 (I got the value for my box just with this one product). 

The second product was bellapierre Natural Lip Liner in Cinnamon, another full sized product that retails at $18. I am creating 8 boxes for my family and this will be added to one of those boxes because I don't use lip-liner but the color is beautiful!

I was so excited about a full sized luxurious lipstick by Appeal Cosmetics in Baby my Doll. I have been meaning to buy this color for a long time and I am really excited to get this in my box this month! The retail for this is $22 (and yes this is full size as well)

The fourth item in this month's bag was the bellapierre full sized shimmer powder and retails $14.99. While I don't use shimmer powder myself, this will go into my gift boxes and I know of the person that will appreciate it so

The last product was a Lauren B. nail paint is Rodeo Drive, the retail is $18 and who doesn't love red nail paint? 

So I love this box and Boxycharm has to be my favorite subscription box so far! I paid $21 for this box with shipping and the value of this box was $127.99...yes $127.99!!!! This is by far the highest value box they have sent out and I love everything in it!!! If you want to try or find out more about Boxycharm, click here

Sensationally Sunkissed - Ipsy July 2014 Review

It has been a while since I have written a review on here. Needless to say, it has been a crazy month. Anyway I am back with my Ipsy review for this month. So here goes!

The theme for this month- Sensationally Sunkissed! 

The first product in this month's bag was Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08, 1 fl oz which was about $1.50 given the full size is 8 fl oz and about $11.99 (on the official website). I am too dark to use this but I may give it to a friend or my boyfriend! Love the brand though and how it uses natural sources. 

The next product was the Lavilin Jojoba Gel Cream 15 ml, the value for this is about $ 3.15, the full size is 100 ml and retails at $21 (official website). I was excited to try this but unfortunately more that half the gel leaked in the bag and that makes me a little sad. 

The third product in my this month's Ipsy was the Benefit they’re real! beyond mascara, this is a good deluxe sample size and the value is around $8. I love mascara and this one seems to lengthen, thicken, lift and is longwearing!

The fourth product in this month's bag was Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass and is a full size product. Retail Value (from official website) - $22.99. I love lip and cheek tints and this is a great red and little will go a long way! This has to be the superstar for me in this bag. 

The last product in this month's bag was the 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15, this thing is tiny and the value is close to $ 5.40. The full size cost $18. I do like the color and excited to try this as well. 
So that is it from me this time! More reviews coming soon so stay tuned. Please like my page on facebook and click here to join and find out more about Ipsy
