Glitz & Glam! Can you think of a better theme for the holidays? Celebrating with feasts, lights, parties! Everyone loves to dress up and go out once in a while - even my socially anxious self!
Let's get right to the products! This Real Her Be Fearless, Be Limitless Blush Kit is adorable beyond words! How often do you find a sweet blush trio like this? Fearless is a beautiful rose, and I can totally see using this everyday. A sweet coral called Limitless could be used for a sheer wash of colour in spring, or even as a highlighter. Unstoppable looks more like a blend of cocoa and rose, too dark as a blush for me, but I can see using it for contouring.
From Crown Brush we have the Deluxe Blush Brush. The bristles on this brush are SO soft, you can just glide it over your cheeks. The bristles are also dense enough that you can use it on powder or cream blushes with equal success. I own a few Crown brushes thanks to my beauty subs, and I love them all!
Pretty Vulgar isn't a brand I'd heard of before, but now I'm looking into them. My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick was available in 3 colours (see them here http://bit.ly/2EGjQsO ). Lucky for me, I got the prettiest one! The radiant metallic rose shade of Particularly Sophisticated is creamy and highly pigmented. It also smells and tastes of citrus! I love when my cosmetics smell good, and especially love nice tasting lippies!
For our eyes, we got the Tartiest Lash Paint from Tarte. This jet-black mascara has a brush especially molded to catch every little lash. I have quite a few stubby lashes that resist mascara brushes like crazy, but this brush captures them all! I was quite impressed. Of course, because I'm a weeper with chronically dry eyes, I could wish that it was waterproof. This beautiful vegan formula is definitely a keeper, though.
Finally, we get to the second face palette. Have you ever heard of a beauty sub that sends out two palettes in one month? It's awesome. Beaute Basics has produced this Bronze Essentials collection of 5 different shades. They can be used separately or combined to customize your own glow! Unfortunately, mine was shattered in transit, so I can't tell you how it was. I am waiting on a replacement, though, so hopefully I'll be able to remedy that sometime down the line.
Edited to add:
I have to tell you, the BoxyCharm customer service is exemplary! I got my replacement Beaute Basics face palette before I got my January box! It is much prettier in person than the pictures led me to believe. I'm not really one for bronzing, but I have a friend who is - she'll appreciate it! I have a picture of it in the slideshow. I'm not sure how I managed it, but the colours in my picture are exactly what they are in the palette!
So for a subscription that costs $21 USD (plus $5 shipping to Canada), we got $130.95 worth of products. Basically, for less than the cost of the Tarte mascara, you get ALL of these items.

If you are uncomfortable with that, I understand.
