Oh no! It's the last Color Curate bag of the year! That just means we have a whole year of subscriptions coming up! So Susan sent a bag this month that will set us up to shine for the holidays.
"Celebrate Life Because You're Worth It"
So, as usual, we get a cute little bag with this quote across the front. What an uplifting message. I think we need to remind ourselves of this more often. We let ourselves get dragged down by the minutiae of our lives, when we should be celebrating that we ARE alive!
Jelly Pong Pong has given us Stardrops in Supernova this month. Products like these make me wish I was a better photographer. I can never quite capture the gleam of these glow drops. You can use it as a highlighter, or add it to your face cream or foundation for a warm golden radiance. I'm not a fan of warm colours with my skin, but I may see how this works in the summer to help me fake sun-exposure!
Next we have a long-wear liquid lipstick in "Chocolate Berry". Normally, with anything that says chocolate, I would immediately turn my nose up at it. So Susan has made that impossible. It's more of a dark wine, with a warm chocolatey undertone. It dries down really nice, and smells amazing! Kind of like a fortified wine I had once, floral but with a hint of good chocolate. It also looks really good on, and doesn't dry out your lips. The cocoa butter and olive oil probably help with that!
Something we don't get a lot of in this subscription is mascara, so I knew this was going to be good when I saw it included in the bag. So black! So shiny! Very volumizing! I have sparse, pale lashes, so this intensely black, volumizing Truffle Mascara from Trifle Cosmetics was right up my alley. Made my lashes look amazing. My only problem was that it isn't waterproof. I have chronically dry eyes, so they water a lot.
So happy! I love this super-pretty palette from Jelly Pong Pong! The Dream Palette in Nightingale has 4 rich and lustrous shades, with a beautiful shimmer. It moisturizes and melts into the skin to make your shadow last longer, and is full of anti-oxidants, minerals, Vitamin K, and Copper Peptide to promote elastin and collagen production for the delicate skin of your eye. I really like it. When I remove it at night, my eyes don't feel all dry and scratchy which is wonderful!
So, what do you think? $20.95 USD and $9.95 shipping (because I'm in Canada), for a bag valued at $104.00. I think that's a pretty good deal, and it's a full face of products ready for a holiday night on the town!
