The first thing I saw was this coupon/gift card thing for a produce subscription box. Not something I'll use, because I follow a meal plan service so we need specific items each week, but a nice bonus if that's something that you're interested in!
The first item that I pulled out of the box was this Tarte Cosmetics Power Pigment in Flush ($24).
The packaging is adorable and fun, and the lip color is great - it's well-pigmented and so far has stayed on pretty long both times I've used it. On the right, I put some on the back of my hand (the top is the product applied directly to my hand, the bottom area is where I kind of smudged it around for lighter color).
I forgot to photograph the last item, which was a Sesha one-time-use mask ($9). I haven't tried it yet, but I'll let you know what I think once I do.
As a whole I was pretty impressed with my first Glossybox. I received $67 in products, most of which I was really excited about! I can't wait for my next one, which will actually be sooner than normal because I purchased two previous boxes through a throwback special, which should arrive in the next week or so.Sam and I attended a Halloween party that my niece hosted at her house on Saturday night. I spent an exorbitant amount of money on a Bat Girl costume (thanks, Halloween Express, for the overpriced low-quality clothing to be worn one or two days a year), and Sam dressed as Jake from State Farm (that's his favorite commercial, and I thought the costume was pretty creative).
I spent a lot of time of my eye makeup for this costume, trying to get a Bat Girl-esque look going on. It ended up taking like an hour, but I think it looked pretty decent. I used bright yellow and yellow-gold shadows from an old palette that I picked up at Claire's like six years ago (I know, I totally should have thrown that away by now). The look would have been better if I'd had higher-quality yellow shadows, since Claire's isn't exactly known for quality, let alone makeup quality, but I worked with what I had. for the winged part in the crease, I used a taupe color from my Maybelline Expert Eye Wear quad, and then a black shadow from the Claire's palette over it. I used Physician's Formula liquid liner, the taupe shadow to line my lower lashes, iENVY by KISS lashes that I got in my October ipsy bag, and Urban Decay Perversion mascara. Overall I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out, but I wish I'd had a higher-quality, more pigmented yellow shadow.
