There was a definite color theme in this month’s YoY box: black, pink, and white. 🙂 Check out what was inside!
*Note: prices listed as photo captions are what I found on the respective product websites at the time of posting. Yes, Oh Yas! only provided the total savings, based on the information they received from the individual partner companies.
Lip Brush 912
from Sormé Cosmetics
This lip brush comes apart so that you can cap it, which makes it perfect for carrying in my purse for touch-ups. My other lip brushes are pointier and have a slicker feel, so I like that this one is wider and softer. I love it for applying lip stains.
Purifying Body Polish
from Dosi Blends
This claims to refresh your body and soul…blah, blah, blah. You can either use it as a scrub in the shower or you can add it to a running bath. I did the latter, and all I could smell was the coffee. That’s great if you’re a coffee lover–I’m not. I didn’t smell any of the essential oils it talks about and getting all the coffee grounds out of my tub was a pain. I could make my own scrub for less and like it a lot more.
Lady Boss Eyeshadow Palette
from Amor Us USA
This palette has too much glitter for my taste. That plus some of the colors make it difficult to use for everyday work looks. There was major kick-up and fallout, especially with the glitter shades. I don’t see myself reaching for this palette very often.
Electric Lip Slide in “Passion Sorbet”
I’ll cut straight to the chase: the color is gorgeous, but I absolutely hate the texture of lip gloss. The stickiness drives me insane. Into the giveaway bag!
Line Styler Pen
from Studio Makeup
This was a typical felt tip liner; nothing about it really stood out to me, other than the fact that it was tough to get completely off at the end of the day. It’s certainly got staying power!
Total Value: $81
For $14.99, that means I saved 81% on retail! What are you waiting for?
I’m already looking forward to my May box! How about you?
