In one word: Underwhelming.
I’m actually, for the first time in 2 years, highly disappointed. Here’s why.
tarte Limited Edition Rainforest of the Sea Highlighting Palette Vol 3
It’s all shimmers-except for one less than stellar matte:
I didn’t bother swatching them all because 1) they’re all super similar and 2) a shimmer is a shimmer.
I received a tarte palette very similar to this a little over a year ago, and I didn’t like that one either. tarte in general isn’t really my jam-I love the shape tape and the Park Ave Princess Contour palette but never met a tarte eyeshadow I liked. This retails for 36$.
BrioGeo Dont Despair, Repair! Leave In Hair Mask
Since I literally got the exact same product from Boxy in October and even still have some left, there’s not much to say about this. It’s nice but I didn’t need more. 16$.
Tatcha Dewy Skin Face Mask
This is good-Tatcha is a great brand and these masks aren’t cheap. 12$ for one-so they better be good. So the total value is 24$.
Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eye Pencil
It’s a brown eyeliner. There’s not a whole ton to say-it’s somewhat pigmented but hard to tell how it’s going to work in the waterline. Can I always use a decent eyeliner? Sure. Is this one? Who knows. Retails for 10$.
Finally, Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Havana Nights
At least Ofra lippies are a tried and true good formula. I’d have liked to try Bite Beauty, but it was not to be. I do like the scent (vanilla/cupcake-y) the doe foot applicator-
and the shade:
So this isn’t a total disaster. The Ofra retails for 20$.
The total value of this month’s box is 106$, still great for a 21$ box. It wasn’t their best month-the last time they sent me duplicate items, they sent me a 6th item which was a Jonteblu pencil-horrible. Hopefully that’s not my 6th item again.
Better luck next month, right? 🤷🏼♀️
