Since tomorrow will officially begin the start of Winter, I thought today would be a perfect time to review the November “Autumn Magic” Orglamix Glam Box.  If you’d like to try out a box for yourself use the coupon code VEGAN to save 25%.

The November Box description: “Fall conjures up images of jumping in leaves, drinking hot tea and cozy knit sweaters.  Spend some time pampering yourself with every deliciously scented product that’s tucked inside this month’s box.  Spoil yourself, just in time for the holidays.”

Créme Fraiche – Spiced Pear
(Estimated Retail: $6.00)
Description: ”The aroma of juicy pears, warm brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg & a touch of cinnamon spice. Our limited edition Créme Fraiche whipped soap creates a rich, luxurious lather as it naturally exfoliates with sugar crystals.  Nourishing sweet almond oil protects and pampers for skin that feels soft, smooth and ultra-touchable.  Enjoy the fluffy texture – just a dab goes a long way….it’s so versatile it can be used as a shaving cream, bubble bath, or even a shampoo on certain hair types.”
Verdict:Love!
I don’t think I’ve ever used a soap with this texture.  It seems perfect for a shaving cream and the smell is delicious. I’d love to try this out in even more scents.

body-lotion
Body Brulee – Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin

(Estimated Retail: $6.00)
Description: “A fall favorite blend of heirloom pumpkin, autumn cinnamon  & ginger snap.  Infused with coconut oil and grapeseed, our enhanced lotion contains more of what skin loves.  Fortified with nutrient rich ingredients like protective Vitamin E and conditioning Vitamin B5, our fast-absorbing, non-greasy formula delivers 216 hours of continuous moisture.”
Verdict: Is it Fall if there isn’t any pumpkin spice?
This box just had to have a pumpkin item and a body lotion seems a nice choice.  Between the cold weather and the indoor heating, my skin is getting pretty cracked and painful. Hopefully this will help.

lip-plumper plumper-swatch
Natural Lip Plumper
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
Description: “Infused with 100 percent natural ingredients, this lip gloss nourishes, conditions, soothes and plumps lips.  A proprietary complex visibly plumps lips and increases circulation for a voluptuous, juicy look, while soothing jojoba hydrates and enhances barrier recovery.“
Verdict: Like!
This is an inspired choice, since cinnamon tends to be an ingredient in a lot of lip plumpers.  Despite the tinted color, you can see from the swatch that this goes on as a clear gloss.  I haven’t had a chance to try it yet to discover if it really does plump up my lips but it didn’t feel drying or too tingly when I swatched it.

eyeshadows eyeshadow-swatches
Salted Caramel – Natural Mineral Eyeshadow

(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
Description: ”…this soothing shade is infused with rich, buttery neutral notes and just a hint of shimmer.  It’s almost matte, but better.”
Verdict: Like
The Salted Caramel shade seems a bit warm for me, but I think I may be able to use the golden hue for some holiday looks. I’m thinking of pairing with a simple cat eye using an espresso brown liner and a gold shimmery lip gloss.
Pumpkin Cider – Natural Mineral Eyeshadow
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
Description: ”A creamy blendable shade with intensity that lasts day to night.”
Verdict: Not for me
This is a gorgeous shade, with amazing color payoff, but orange is not for me.  I’m going to gift this to a friend with a skin tone this should look amazing on.
Spiced Mocha – Natural Mineral Eyeshadow
(Estimated Retail: $12.00)
Description: ”…This chestnut hue is a flattering choice for everyday.”
Verdict:
Hit!
This is a lovely neutral that will work on nearly every skin tone.

OVERALL
orglamix-november-2016
Verdict:
Like!
Orglamix once again delivered a fun box centered around a seasonal theme.  My favorite item was the unique soap, but with the exception of the pumpkin eyeshadow, I’ll use all theitems in this box.  I received this box for free, but the regular month-to-month cost is $29.00.  The estimated retail value (based on the included card) came out to $60.00.  That’s a little low for their typical value, but still a great deal.  Orglamix always sends me products I don’t get in other boxes.  If you like unique beauty, consider trying them out.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Lisa attended Syracuse University where she studied singing in a giant castle surrounded by ice and snow. After she earned her music degree, she headed to the island of Manhattan, down to the West Village, to a place called the New School. There, she earned another degree in the great art of writing stories for children. She currently works on that same island, in the dungeon of an old building, making up stories while she sorts through endless stacks of papers, just dreaming of working somewhere with windows. She is currently working on several novels and hopes to write her way to that aforementioned windowed place. Her first book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale,” a fairy tale adventure was released on May 30, 2017 and is up for sale on Amazon. In the meantime, she keeps herself occupied by obsessing over subscription boxes and home renovations.
