Orglamix Glam Box: April 2017 Best In Beauty + 25% Off

Another day, another late sub box review.  Promoting my new book, “The Ice Maiden’s Tale” has proven both stressful and time-consuming.  Apparently you can’t just tell people it’s an awesome book and beg them to leave you an Amazon review.  Do you think bribing people with cookies would work?  I’d bake them myself and everything.

Anyways, I am shamefully behind with so many great box reviews and posts, so I’m going to just try to power through my backlog and see where we end up.
Today I have my April Orglamix Glam Box that had “Best in Beauty” theme.  “Spring is in full bloom, and as the sun comes out and jackets come off, the desire to lift a few layers (and minutes) from our makeup routine is intensifying.  To help, this month we’ve turned to our bestselling favorites for a makeup bag refresh.  These 5-star products are an easy way to sharpen up your look but still keep it low key.”

My packaging even came with this adorable tiny little stars.

Bubble Blender Silicone Makeup Applicator
(Estimated Retail: $15.00)
Description: ”…It’s time to throw out all of your makeup sponges and never waste expensive makeup again. The Bubble Blender’s innovative and revolutionary design allows you to blend all your liquid or cream based makeup without any waste.  THE secret lies in its nonporpous design which does not absorb makeup like a sponge but still maintains flawless application.”
Verdict: Love!
I’ve seen these style of applicators on beauty blogs and been dying to try one out. I can’t wait to see how it works with my go to CC cream from It Cosmetics.  I’d love to see if this can replace my makeup sponges since I find cleaning the sponges tedious and since this product is non-porous it seems like it’s super easy to keep hygienic.

llume Cream Luminizer
(Estimated Retail: $18.00)
Description: “Our must have, bestselling cream highlighter adds a youthful glow with a transparent, dewy finish.  Use Luminizer on cheek bones, brow bones and eyelids to create a sensuous, luminous glow.  IT’s not shiny, greasy or glittery.  Use it anywhere you want gorgeous, glowing skin.  Simply blend over cheek bones, down the bridge of the nose and at the bow of the lips.”
Verdict: Like!
I like the subtle sheen of this Luminizer and that it’s not glittery.  It’s definitely a nice product for the more natural makeup looks I like to go for in Spring and Summer.

Mud Treatment Hydrating
(Estimated Retail: $15.00)
Description: “A 5-minute professional-quality mud mask treatment to deliver instant, extreme hydrating. Our Hydrating Mud Treatment uses the newest, most advanced and extreme hydration active technologies.  It moisturizes, restores, replenishes, and calms in just five minutes.”
Verdict: Hit!
I found that working in the garden and around the house has left my skin dry.  Once I actually have at least one bathroom in decent shape, I’m going to give myself a nice facial and try out this mud treatment.


V.I.Pretty lip + cheek gelle

(Estimated Retail: $18.00)
Description: ”Wear the first rosy glow of Spring with this multi-tasking lip & cheek stain.”
Verdict: Hit!
I adore cream blushes and this shade is lovely and subtle.

5 Star Fab natural eyeshadow
(Estimated Retail: $12.50)
Description: ”One part unicorn, one part mermaid and three parts magic combine for a wash of rainbow color and all around total gorgeousness.  So without further ado, here is the makeup look everyone will be copying; watercolor eyes…Experiment with extra-colorful pastel, opalescent lids.
Verdict: LOVE!
You had me at mermaid.  Watercolor eyes are one of my favorite looks and I tend to hoard eye products in soft oceany pastels.  I love the shimmer to this.  Mineral eyeshadows go on so beautifully that I’ve kind of become addicted to them.  At first I was intimidated with trying to use them, but they go on smoothly and blend easily.  Definitely try them out if you haven’t.

OVERALL

Verdict:
Love!
I receive this for free in order to review it, but the regular cost is $29 and the estimated retail value comes out to $78.50.  I think for $29 this box delivered a nice variety of products that would appeal to most subscribers.  I love how Orglamix always surprises me with something new and unexpected (like the silicone blender), and I find that it’s one of the most consistent beauty boxes in terms of providing items that I will use and enjoy.  If you’re looking for a unique beauty box, definitely give this one a try.

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 trying to help real people, while making up stories about imaginary ones. 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.
