I decided that for the Sweet Sparkle January box I shall just simply do a blog post all about the products. It will also include photos I took of using the products on a makeup look that I created!

Every month Sweet Sparkle choose products according to a theme. January’s theme was called Simply Beautiful. It basically revolved around beauty that is kept natural. In fact we didn’t get an eyeshadow palette as we usually do; instead we got a single pigmented shadow – which I can just say is just lovely and simple yet gives the right amount of colour to your lids!
I also liked that this month’s card came with the list of products we received plus how much they costed and a little description about them! I hope that this will be done in future boxes!
The products we received were –
Kokie High Brow Angled Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde
For the first time ever we received a BROW product! And I really love this pencil as it is angled so it helps you attain the eyebrow look that you might want.
I am still brushing up on my eyebrow skills but I think I am getting better. I love the bigger brows (kind of like Cara Delevingne’s!) I found that with this pencil I managed to create what I wanted to!
This retails for $10!
Nicka K Contour Kit
Now this palette confused me as there were three shades. I know that the one on the left is a contour shade whilst the one on the right is the highlight shade. But then what is the one in the middle? I used that shade as a sort of blush to give my cheeks some natural colour!
I actually liked the contour shade, it is different to other contour powders I have used as this one is sort of an ashy brown! But it blended well same as the other 2 powders. They all gave more depth to my face!
This retails for $3.99 – this is quite a bargain as the quality is quite good!
Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder – Beige
This was such a cute pigment to get. I found it set well on my eye lid and did not move in any sort. It also blended well and you could easily create an eye look with just this shade!
With my eye look besides using this powder I also used the highlight shade from the Nicka K Contour Kit!

The Bella Pierre shimmer powder retails for $15!
Hikari Mascara – Jet
I did not quite like this mascara as it left my lashes all clumpy and did not separate them well. It also did not curl them if you know what I mean so I would not recommend this Mascara.
This retails for $15
J.Cat Beauty Wholly Addiction Lip Liner – Acorn
I absolutely loved both lip products in this box! The lip liner is such a nice mauve-y shade I love it. It also was not drying on my lips! I applied it all over my lips.
This retails for $2.99 – I highly recommend these lip liners!
Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Gloss Stick – Love Stamp
I am trying to wear more lip glosses and I love having this in my collection.
The shade goes perfectly with the lip liner – it is like a dark pink glossy shade. It also isn’t that sticky!
This retails for $19.
The total price of the box therefore was – $65.98 – this is amazing as I only paid $24 for the box!
So this month’s was definitely a good splurge!
