FabFitFun: Spring 2018 Box

I didn’t mean to totally subscribe to the FabFitFun box after the Sample Box, but I forgot to unsubscribe before it renewed me for the first real box (that’s how they get you).

When I arrived, I was excited at how packed it was of goodies, but I’m not sure how much of it is actually useful to me at the moment.

The first was this foldable Rachel Pally Reversible Clutch (retails for $60). The colours weren’t really my style so I ended up giving it to my sister.

I also gave her these Ettika Day Dreamer Tassel Earrings ($58). They’re pretty but I think not practical with a new puppy.

Personally, I was more into the make-up in the box.

This lipstick palette is full of gorgeous pinks and reds for nice subtle looks.

There was also this Murad Skin Perfect Lotion ($40). I can never get enough of high-end skincare options to try.

I also got a Dermelect Makeover Concealing Ridge Filler ($18), a treatment for nail ridges and to conceal discoloration. My nails are generally healthy except for when I do shellac, so I will save it for those moments.

 

Inside this cute little package was KNC Beauty Lip Masks ($25).

I love spoiling myself with masks, so these were a keeper.

I’ve been meaning to get a ball for my back for a while but this Physique 57 Massage Roller ($20) seems like the next best thing.

For beauty sleeping, this free-people leather eye mask ($40) is comfy, but found it a bit heavy.

I’m not the kind of person who appreciates a $45 Anderson Lilley Sunset Collection Candle in Fresh Linen, so I left my sister have it.

It comes in a minimalistic gold container. We also got separate care instructions e-mailed to us about the candle.

While they definitely deliver money value in each FabFitFun box, the items inside were both hit and misses for me. I tend to be more interested in cosmetics than household items, so I don’t think I’ll be subscribing to the summer box.

I Ate a Pablo Cheese Tart

I finally tried a Pablo Cheese Tart because I was in the neighbourhood and didn’t see a long line. I didn’t realize that the tart that everyone’s been Instagraming is as big as a cake when you buy the full thing.

I got the original Freshly Baked Cheese Tart. I waited until I got home to have a slice but it traveled well and the filling melted in my mouth. I like the lemony top and the texture of the tart that doesn’t feel too heavy.

I’m not sure if I’d ever wait in line for one of these, but it was worth trying once!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Aurora Glow Kit

It’s been hard getting back into blogging after a break for wedding planning but going to get back to posting regularly again. I found this Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit at Winners for half the price. Bunz Make-Up Zone has been a great place to keep up to date on where I can get things for a steal.

The colours in the Aurora are beautiful like a unicorn and have a sparkly pigment. I’ve been really into highlighters lately so happy to add this one to my collection.

Things I Used Up: March 2018

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I just got married the past weekend, so it’s been a whirlwind few months. I’ll have a full post on that later when I get my official photos!

  • Llang On the Skin Truffle Sheet Mask
  • Belif the true cream moisture bomb (sample)
  • Juice Beauty Stem Celluar Anti Wrinkle Moisturizer (sample)

Things I let go of:

  • Sonia Kashuk Texture Taupe 08 eye shadow (gave it to mom)
  • SNP Grapefruit Gelato Brightening Mask x 2 (for the bridesmaid)
  • Various samples and minis for my wedding emergency kit!

I might have missed a few things in the hustle, but I’ll continue trying to track and use up more products. I have however acquired a few more beauty related things since the last post, so I’m not using things fast enough!
