The Beauty Crop Blush Duo - Papaya Don't Preach
Full Size Price: $10.00
This is a blush duo that contains both a cream and powder formula. I am personally one who favors powdered blushes but I don't mind using cream occasionally. The pigmentation on both of these is quite beautiful. The cream blush is more on the pink side while the powder blush is a peachy golden hue. They both blend out well and last for a fairly long time on the skin. From my research, this does seem to be a full size product this month. I would repurchase it as well.


Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
Full Size Price: $65.00
Sample size value is approximately: $16.25
This is a night repair serum that claims to boost skin's natural nighttime renewal process. It is to be used as a part of your nightly skin care routine so it can work overnight to reduce lines, dullness, and dryness. The formula is more on the gel like side. It blends easily into the skin and did not cause any irritation. I feel with a product like this, you would need to test it for a prolonged period of time to truly attest to any claims. I found that it did make my skin feel more smooth in the morning so I'd be interested in continuing with it to see if I get any long term results. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.


Oribe Gold Lust Shampoo & Conditioner
Full Size Price: $49.00/$52.00
Sample size value is approximately: $1.44/$1.91
I have tried several Oribe products before and do enjoy the brand so I was excited to give this shampoo and conditioner sample a try. This is a healing formula that claims to rejuvenate and strengthen damaged hair with oils and extracts like cypress, argan, and maracuja. I really loved the scent of both of these as it was on the sweet side and it did linger on the hair after use. I found that it made my hair feel soft and smooth and lathered nicely when used. I would consider purchasing the full size of these products. This was a bonus product in this month's box as well.


Kensie Eau de Parfum
Full Size Price: $55.00
Sample size value is approximately: $2.69
This is a floral perfume that contains a blend of rose, jasmine, peach, mandarin, sandalwood, and vanilla. While I did enjoy the scent of this perfume, it is very masculine for my taste. It reminds me a lot of a men's cologne and I ended up giving it to my husband as he enjoyed it so much. I personally prefer more sweet scents so it isn't for me but I do think it smells very nice.


Manna Kadar Cosmetics Eye Candy Priming Shadow Stick in shade "Jelly Bean"
Full Size Price: $24.00
Sample size value is approximately: $14.40
This is a two-in-one shadow stick that is in a shimmery slate shade. I found that it worked very well as an eyeshadow base as it provided a richer color to my taupe eyeshadow and it created a long lasting base. It does contain a built in primer so the product is a power house in that regard. My product came broken and melted due to the summer heat so I had a bit of a harder time with application but that is not directly due to the product. I really enjoyed this product and would love to purchase other shades.


Mellow Cosmetics Liquid Lip Paint in shade "New York"
Full Size Price: $14.00
Sample size value is approximately: $7.00
This is a liquid lipstick that has a matte finish. It is highly pigmented and does bleed out a bit so I do recommend a lip liner to help contain the product and for longer wear. It contains a built in primer for a long lasting formula. I found that it never fully set on the lips so it did smudge a bit when eating and drinking but overall it did last quite awhile without needing reapplication. The shade is a bold berry color that I tend to wear more in the fall/winter seasons but I did find that it looks well for a neutral eye look. I enjoyed the product overall and would like to try other shades.


Overall I feel this has been the first box of the year that I fully enjoyed. I hope to see this trend continue as I have been quite disappointed in the last few months. My favorite product from this month's box is the shadow stick.
