Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.
I have uploaded a new video and am in the mood to write a blog post about it. It could be because the window’s curtains are opened, and sunshine is passing through or because I finally feel so much better.
So since I have this energy mood, that equals me to being able to sit down comfortable on my bed, put a pillow under my laptop, turn on my pumpkin spice candle and I am good to go to write. Ahhh I love this good mood.
So today I uploaded a video of me unboxing the October Sweet Sparkle Beauty Box and the theme of the month was Shades of Fall.
You could visit their website right here if you are interested in subscribing and would like further information. There are three different types of subscriptions from you to choose from.
The products that I got were –
Miss Adoro Blending Sponge
This blending sponge looks cute but I personally feel that it doesn’t do an accurate job of blending out your foundation/concealer to a natural looking finish.
I think the Real Techniques Beauty Blender is much better!
City Color Smokey Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
I preferred this eyeshadow palette to the one we got back in the September box from Jordana. I think this eyeshadow palette has a better colour pay out and the eyeshadows blend well altogether.
I also think that the packaging is so ideal and compact, it is not heavy and it is small so it would be a perfect palette to take with you when you are travelling.
Jordana Fabuliner Liquid Eyeliner in Black
I actually was impressed by this liquid eyeliner. I usually am not a fan of pen eyeliners as I feel that they are patchy and don’t give you the best colour pay off. Even though, I had to go over the line to be happy with the final look, I really liked this eyeliner.
Milani Runaway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara
I LOVE this mascara. I had even loved last month’s mascara by Jordana.
But this one is so good and I have been using it constantly! The wand is a basic wand, it seperates your lashes evenly and does not leave them clumpy. It does not transfer onto your eyelid and I just love it!
Wet n Wild coloricon Blush – shade apricot in the middle
This may not be my favourite colour as a blush – as I more of a pink blush girl – but with the look I created in the video and the theme of the month it goes really well. And I cannot say that the Wet n Wild Blushes aren’t good as that would be a lie. They blend nicely on your cheeks and makes your blush complexion even,
Nicka K New York Duo Highlighter NDO010
I have mixed feelings about the product. I mean I swatched them one shade barely showed and the other was a chalky white. And personally, I do not want a chalky white on my cheek as a highlight. I prefer the gold highlights you know?
But the colour payoff of this palette is quite bleak and you can barely tell that there is any highlight even when applying both shades. So I guess, this palette would be perfect for those people who are looking more of a subtyle and dainty highlight rather than the bright in your face highlights.
Rude Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Swank
So one thing I have to say, each month the box comes with a card and the card will have a picture of a model probably wearing all the makeup products together with the name of the theme of the month.
The lip colour she is wearing is more of a purple-mauve shade but the lipstick I got is more peach toned rather than purple mauve-y toned. Now I don’t know if the model is wearing the lipstick or not, or because we have different shaded lips but Kezia was disappointed.
I mean when I swatched the lipstick on my hand I was so excited to try it on. But when I did I saw the shade as being a common shade that I already have in my collection. I cannot say that the formula of the lipstick wasn’t good, cos it was. It was not drying on the lips but moisturing and creamy.
So there you have it, those are all the products I received from Sweet Sparkle in the October box.
If you want to see me trying out the products and giving you my thoughts on them then you can watch it right here –
