Walmart Beauty Box

I signed up for the Walmart Beauty Box.  It is a quarterly subscription, and only costs $5!  For $20 per year, you will receive 4 boxes, one each season.

“Your Fall box provides you with beauty products that are uniquely you and will soon be a part of your everyday routine”.

In this first box, I received 1 FL. OZ. Dove shampoo, 1 FL. OZ. Dove conditioner, a full-size Secret Clinical Strength Clear Gel Deodorant in Completely Clean, a perfume sample of Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj, a sample of L’Oreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher, a .4 FL. OZ. Dove Pure Care Dry Oil hair treatment, 3.5 ml CoverGirl Glossy Days Glosstinis in 670 #GetGlowing, a full-size L’Oreal Glossy Balm in Petite Plum, and an 8 pack sample of Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Makeup and a $2 off coupon for the Neutrogena.

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

I purchased 2 NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams at Ulta a few weeks ago because they were on sale and I was dying to try Copenhagen!  I grabbed Copenhagen and Ibiza.

All of these are photos of Copenhagen.  It is much deeper than it photographs, and is a burgundy color.  I love it!  Your lips definitely need to be scrubbed and moisturized for these creams!

Ibiza:

Ibiza is too orange for me, but it’s a pretty color!
I’m glad I picked these up, and I know Copenhagen is going to get a ton of use this autumn and winter!

Cargo’s Suited to a Tea Color Palette

image

I received this palette in a swap.  I was surprised to find that the colors are cream eyeshadows! 

image

image

There are a variety of colors, and as you will see, they are all pretty light.  They will work for a light wash of color, which is exactly what some people want.  Now on to the swatches!

All swatches are over Wet n Wild Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer.

Mayfair

My favorite colors are Devonshire, Macaron and Mayfair.  Bloomsbury and Macaron are meant to be used on cheeks and lips too!  This palette is really pretty, but just not me.  My mother loves it, and she will be taking it home with her!  I loved trying these shadows out, and I would love a few of these as singles.  You can purchase this palette for around $39.

The Baron

All Saints’ Day

I am hard pressed to pick a favorite, I love all of these colors!  I was surprised by Prophecy, described as “olive, gold and orange”, depending on the angle.  The Baron is one of my favorite colors, and has a really pretty pino and purple sheen.  All Saints’ Day is a gorgeous champagne color, and will make a great highlight.

If you have been considering picking up some new eyeshadows, this is a great deal to take advantage of!

Innocent + Twisted Alchemy – October Subscription

image

Cute packaging! 

image

4 full-size I+TA eyeshadows and a blush

image

3 eyeshadow samples and a lipstick sample

This is the last month for the subscription until next year.  The owner, Linda, has a full-time job and has chosen to put the sub on hold during the busy season at work.  I think this is a great idea, much better than letting the sub overwhelm her and getting behind.

Thoumaturage (this color has a pretty teal sheen that I just couldnt capture.  You can barely see it at the top of the photo)

Hallowing Voice

image

Cruor

I think Hallowing Voice and Cruor will look great together!  All of the colors are pretty and apply smoothly, and Im sad the sub will be on hold for a few months.

Onto the samples from other companies!

Regina from Hello Waffle

Laurel from Esoteric Aesthetic (this color has a pretty mint green shimmer that I failed to capture)

Jailbait from Eccentric Cosmetics

Dementia Mineral Lip Gloss from Spectrum Cosmetics

Dementia lightly applied

What fun colors!  I love that the I+TA colors have a theme, and this month’s theme was ‘Live or Die’, based on the Saw movies.  The sub came with a code for 35% off my next order.
Im having a hard time choosing my favorite from the other companies!  As you already know, I love Esoteric Aesthetic, and I also really like Jailbait from Eccentric Cosmetics.  If you are into blackened colors, Regina from Hello Waffle is gorgeous!
