Unboxing – Beauty Plait – October 2017

Hi everyone,

Hope you all are doing great. Today is such a lovely day in Stirling, I couldn’t help but sit down at my desk and write a blog post.

I am so excited to share with you all Malta’s very first Beauty Subscription Box thanks to Plait. Plait is a subscription box website which have 5 different boxes ranging from Maltese food, snacks, beer, wine and now even makeup!

What’s exciting is that because most of the other subscription bags worldwide don’t ship to Malta, but we finally have our very own beauty box called Beauty Plait. Now, the Beauty Plait doesn’t ship internationally, however the rest of the boxes do.

You can choose from 3 different subscription types:

  • Month subscription – €21
  • 3 months subscription – €19
  • 6 months subscription – €17

What does the Beauty Plait box consist of?

The beauty box comes with 5 products, not sample sizes but full size products and is worth over €40!! I also liked how the box came with a quote that said, “Happy girls are the prettiest”, from Audrey Hepburn.

Now the November box is already SOLD OUT but you can order the next box, which is the December box on November 1st 2017.

And you can order it right here – https://plait.com.mt/beautyplait/?rf=?748dv90d

You can also follow Plait on their Social media to know more about them and their boxes:

I would like to THANK Plait for giving me the opportunity to review the Beauty Plait!! Thank you so much!! 

Now I will write about the products that were in the October box and my thoughts on the products. You can also watch my video right here of trying the products out for the first time too – 

The products that were found in the October box were:

TEOXANE Advanced Perfecting Shield

This is quite a high quality kind of product, sold at a high price. It has SPF 30 which I love because Malta needs that SPF to protect us against UV rays!! It is a tinted face cream that you can apply alone or before applying foundation. It contains Hyaluronic Acid and peptides which helps our skin. It states that it should create a smooth, radiant base for makeup.

My Thoughts – 

I found the product to leave my skin with a glow. I loved the way it made my skin feel. I like wearing it on its own but I also like wearing it alongside foundation and a full face of makeup. It creates a nice base for when you apply the rest of your makeup!

Milkshake Whipped Cream Leave in Foam

I love Milkshake products mostly because of that amazing vanilla scents they come in!! This leave in foam conditioner contains milk, wheat germ and casein proteins that help strengthen the hair whilst detangling agents help in adding smoothness and shine.

My Thoughts – 

This product has been added to my Hair Routine. I just love applying it to my ends of my damp hair after a shower. And then I style it by making it wavier. It just leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny!

EVAGARDEN Glaring Eye shadow – Shade 261

This is a powder eye shadow that leaves us with a pearled and ‘metallized’ effect. It is also long lasting as well.

My Thoughts –

The finished eye look.

Shade 261 is a gorgeous metallic dark brown with speckles of glitter. I loved applying it as my shade in the outer corner to finish off my brown smokey eye makeup look. I found the shadow to blend well and it was not at all powdery.

Pupa Diva’s Lashes Mascara Maxi Volume

This mascara states to have a volumising effect and creates “defined, sculpted and perfectly combed eyelashes.” It thickens lashes without adding weight.

My Thoughts

I loved how the mascara applied and it separated my lashes well. It did not transfer on my lids and simply lengthened my lashes. I did not find it to create that much volume, in my opinion it is more of a lengthening mascara rather than a volumising one.

Mac Dazzleglass – Shade – Get Rich Quick

IMG_2029

I love the name of this gloss! This gloss contains “large particle pearls that reflect and refract light to mimic the brilliance of quartz and opal crystals.” It provides us with shine and states to apply smoothly and is a non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight and moisturising formula. You can wear alone, or layer over lipstick or lipglass for dramatic effect.

My Thoughts –

The finished look with the Dazzleglass 

I was so excited for this product but I was disappointed with it. It states that it should have a vanilla scent yet I do not smell one. It is a little sticky and not moisturising on the lips but what I was mostly disappointed was that it wasn’t as pigmented as I hoped it would be. This product didn’t dazzle me at all. However, I preferred using it on a lipstick rather than on its own.

So those were my thoughts on this month’s Beauty Plait. Was it a hit?

I think so – I loved 4/5 of the products – so of course it is a hit! My most fave products out of them all had to be the Milkshake Leave in Foam Conditioner and the EVAGARDEN Glaring Eye Shadow – I was so impressed by them!!

I cannot wait to see what the next box will bring in Beauty Plait!!

Have you guys tried the Beauty Plait? If that’s a yes, what did you think of the products? If that was a no, will you subscribe for the next box? Comment down below!!

Again, I would like to THANK Plait!! 

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia

xoxo
