Sweet Sparkle – February Unboxing – Kiss of Winter

Hi everyone,

Today’s blog post is all about the Sweet Sparkle February Box. The theme of this month was Kiss of Winter.

I did not film a video however, I created a makeup look using all of the products and took pictures in between steps to write up a blog post.

I am really enjoying the fact that now we get a card with all the items written down on it plus a little description on each of them and the retail cost. This really helps in seeing whether the box is worth it!

Before applying any of the products

Concrete Minerals – Mineral Eyeshadow – Shade Sweet Catrina – Retails for $8 

This is a 100% vegan and cruelty free product. It has quite a soft texture and is a pink-champagne shade that flatters all eye colors with a light shimmer.

My thoughts – I found that this isn’t really pigmented and you need to apply a lot of product if you want to get the colour onto your eyelid. Although, I have yet to try it with some sort of setting spray which might help the pigmentation pop.

Be a Bombshell – Baked Blush – Shade Teacher’s Pet – Retails for $6

This is a baked mineral refined into a powder formula for the ideal baked blush. It enhances your cheekbones with its lightweight glimmer of pink and gold.

My thoughts – Since it has shimmers in it, your pore friends on your skin are going to speckle through and I personally do not like it! The colour is cute, the packaging is great; but as a product it isn’t my favourite.

Kokie Cosmetics – Dynamic Due Eyeliner – Retails for $8

The products entails to be a long wear, intense black and smudge free eyeliner. It is a double-ended liquid liner used to create a matte finished look that will last all night.

My thoughts – I loved the eyebrow pencil we got from Kokie in January however, this isn’t a favourite product of mine. The felt tip pen side is great however, the other side isn’t. When I try to go over the line, the black becomes patchy. It is true that it doesn’t smudge and it is quite long lasting. However, it doesn’t create an intense black look.

Crown Cosmetics – Pro Volumizing Mascara – Retails for $4.99

The mascara entails to lengthen, volumise and define lashes. The large wand akes your lashes to new lengths without clumping them.

17016618_10210671096386218_247952537_o

My thoughts – The wand is pretty harsh on the edges so it isn’t my favourite wand. However, I love the effect of this mascara on my lashes. It doesn’t clump them together and the formula doesn’t transfer to my eyelids.

LA Splash – Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick – Shade Cookie Dough – Retails for $14

The shade is dessert like and it has a velvet matte formula and is waterproof. It also exfoliates, moisturises and applies for a long lasting sultry look.

My thoughts – I love the rose gold packaging it is just adorable! The dofer applicator is perfect to help us achieve the perfect lip look. The smell though isn’t my favourite as it has this weird scent! But it really does last long, it isn’t patchy and it isn’t drying!
