KOREAN BEAUTY BOX/ BEAUTEQUE

I Love getting my BEAUTEQUE BOX. If you don't know what this is, then let me explain.

This  is a monthly subscription box that delivers the latest Asian beauty products right to your doorstep. The Beauty Box includes a fun mix of makeup, skincare, body care, beauty tools, and more. You’ll receive at least 6 full sized items each month (no sample sizes here!), with a value that’s at least 3x the cost of the box.




 This months box is pink. I am loving this box.
The theme this month is Get sheet faced.
Lets see what came this month.







 CANDY O LADY CANDY CRUSH CLEANSER $7.99
Start 2018 off fresh faced with these adorable powder cleansing balls. Each color features a different function to treat a variety of skin troubles. Orange cleans and purifies, grey  calms and soothes, blue hydrates and nourishes , green removes dead skin cells and pink helps with pore control
To use-- Select a color that corresponds with your skins biggest concern. Place ball into the palm of your hand and gently crush it into a powder. Apply water and rub hands together to create a rich lather. Wash face as usual.
Tip-- For a deeper clean use with the cleansing and massaging brush that is pictured below. 



 SANDEPIN OCTOPUS SILICONE CLEANSING AND MASSAGING BRUSH $5.99
This 2 in 1 octopus brush not only looks adorable next to your sink, but is designed to help maximize your cleanse. The top side with shorter, denser bristles exfoliates away dirt, makeup and excess oil. The bottom side with longer, firmer bristles provides a stimulating massage that increases blood circulation for overall healthier skin.
To use--Insert your favorite facial cleanser into the bottom of the brush and gently squeeze several times until foam appears on top. Use the shorter denser side to deep clean skin. Towards the end of your cleansing session. use the longer nubs to gently massage skin, starting from the center of the face and working outwards in small circles., When finished , remove the black sponge from center rinse  thoroughly and allow to dry completely.
Tip-- use the massaging side with your favorite balm or oil cleanser for an extra relaxing treatment.





 So i used this and i used the green cleanser ball but you can't tell its green cause of the lighting. The black sponge comes out and you crush up the ball and put it inside the cleansing brush and place the black sponge back inside and then i just ran it under water until a lather started 

 Then i used it on my  skin. I do like this. Its really an innovative way to clean your skin.

 FARM STAY CHARCOAL BLACKHEAD PEEL OFF NOSE PACK $9.99
Get rid of stubborn blackheads and whiteheads with this purifying peel off mask. Loaded with charcoal, green tea, and grapefruit extracts to cleanse and exfoliate the nose area. Leaves skin clear and smooth.

Tip-- Press a warm damp towel on skin for 10 minutes to open pores before applying mask. Mask can also be used as a spot treatment on the t zone or where blackheads are present.

This waterproof and smudge proof eyeliner is perfect for an everyday look that will last from day to night. Creamy gel formula glides on smoothly and doesn't tug or pull. Comes with a build in sharpener






I used this eyeliner on my top lash line and i do like it even though im not a fan of the brown color. But it did stay put all day long.

GRANDE LIPS LIP PLUMPER REVIEW

Hello beauty squad,
today i am reviewing the Grande lips both the clear lip plumper and the hot fuschia.
So lets get started.

In this below photo i have the color hot fuschia which i have swatches on my hand.



And
In the photo below i have the clear lip plumper



This is suppose to instantly plump in 3-5 minutes.
Its clinically proven formula contains volulip and hyaluronic acid. This is also gluten free, paraben free and is not tested on animals.
You are suppose to use this at night before you go to bed on clean, dry lips and again in during the day with other lips products or alone. You are suppose to use this twice daily for 30 days to get the maximum results
They also claim
That with long term use
51% hydration
15% plumpness
13% firmness
11%softness
so let me tell you my thoughts
Using the clearn lip plumper
 ABOVE AND BELOW PHOTO ARE BEFORE

 ABOVE AND BELOW PHOTO ARE 15 MINUTES AFTER USING


 ABOVE AND BELOW PHOTO ARE AFTER 1/2 HOUR
Here below is the the shade hot fuschia after about 15 minutes.


As you can see from the photos with the clear lip plumper, after about 1/2 hour you see the best results. It says to wait 3 to 5 but as you can see from the photos there is a difference between 15 minutes and the 1/2 especially in my top lip.
As far as the hot fuschia, i know that the color is bright but after you apply this color about 15 minutes it appears more like a stain that you see in the photo above.


I don't know about the long term benefits but i feel that if you give this time, it would work great. I noticed a difference after 1/2 hour which is longer than they say. 
They also have lots of different colors so if you want a more neutral color then they have that for you or you can just stick to the clear. I also feel like this is more hydrating when you have this on. I want the full size of the clear. 
Have you tried this line and if so what are your thoughts?

NAIL LOOK OF THE WEEK


 Hello beauty squad,
I thought i would share with you my nail look of the week.



  So lets get started

 First things first.
I applied this Julep oxygen nail treatment to my nails as a base coat.
I also got this nail dryer from my local walmart to use to dry my nails instead of a spray and i have to tell you that i love it, and how cute is that saying "keep calm and polish on"

 For my top coat , i am using out the door which is a super fast drying top coat. I love this.
 I am using this shade from KBSHIMMER nail polish in My life's porpoise. This is a neutral shade that screams spring time which i don't know about you but i am so ready for.
 I am going to top that with Kokie cosmetics nail polish in sparkler send off.
 Here is the Kb shimmer. I reminds me of a Tiffany blue color. This is the perfect shade for spring time.
 Here i have topped that blue shade with the sparkler send off which is so perfect to top with any shade for a bit of sparkle. I then put my top coat on and we are done.
 Here is the finished nail look. What are your thoughts?
Have you tried any of these shades.

CROWN PRO GLAM METALS PALETTE
These are highly pigmented, ultra blendable shadows. 
How adorable is this mirror. I love this, now if only i could find a full size guitar mirror for my wall.

Here are the swatches.
Now i know what you are thinking..

And yes you do have to be careful with applying this but it looks very pretty on and this is perfect for the spring and summer months that are ahead.
I will also feature this in a video so you can see it in action.

This product delivers a natural radiant glow while blurring pores and imperfections. I will also feature this in a video.
I do love that as you can see in the photo below , its not a white primer.


IT COSMETICS BROW PORE UNIVERSAL EYEBROW PENCIL
This really is a iconic product. This was developed with plastic surgeons and its the number 1 best selling award winning eyebrow pencil. It 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. The universal transforming shade adjusts to all hair colors based on pressure. Its exclusive oval tip mimics the look of real hear and includes a build in grooming spooley brush.
