Hey Belleza’s

I’ve decided to continue showing you the other great and unique subscription boxes that I’ve come across.

If you are reading this blog 9 times out of 10 you love makeup as much as I do. There are so many beauty subscription boxes on the market and the majority of them basically do the same thing. You get random things sent out to you each month. Sometimes it’s a hit and other times it’s a huge miss. That’s where Luxe Pineapple comes to the rescue.

 

SAMSUNG CSC

The Luxe Pineapple Box of Joy is not your typical subscription box; in fact it’s not a subscription box at all!

“The Box of Joy is a NON-SUBSCRIPTION based beauty box full of treat at a super low price. Pick and choose which boxes work best for your makeup needs, personal style and budget. We think it’s important to know exactly what you’re getting. Makeup up is personal and we don’t confess to know what works best for each of you (although we try!).” – Luxepineapple.com

 

The Box of Joys’ can range anywhere between $10-$40. Which at times may be a bit more expensive than your standard beauty box but for good reasons! You’re getting full-sized products worth a lot more than the price of the box! No samples or deluxe sizes here. You honestly can’t lose with their boxes since you won’t be stuck with a box that you don’t like. Why? Because you decide if you want to purchase the box or not since there are no automatic monthly payments. If you see a box you’re not too crazy over, don’t fret! Boxes are released about 3-4 times a month, so you’ll definitely find a box you just have to have and when you do make sure to act fast before they sell out.

Signing up and navigating the website is super easy.

To see what Box of Joys’ are currently available just go to the “Box of Joy” tab and you can see any boxes available for purchase. You also get to see what comes inside of the box along with detailed information on each item.

Not in the mood for a box but still want to purchase something? Then take a look through the Pineapple Shop. The Pineapple Shop allows you to purchase some great products at a very reasonable discount! A few weeks ago they had a full-size GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate for $33! In case you didn’t know they retail for $69. I don’t know how you do it Luxe Pineapple but keep doing what you do!

I have to say that I absolutely loved everything I received. What I loved even more was being able to see what beauty products would be in the box, as well as the option of deciding if I wanted to purchase the box or not!

Luxe Pineapple also offers a really great rewards program! Easily earn 50 points by just setting up your account! Then for every $1 you spend you earn 10 points, and if you refer a friend you’ll earn 250. What can you use these points on? Well if you accumulate 500 points you’ll get a $5 credit and if you accumulate 1,000 points you will earn a $10 credit!

They even have an app so that you never miss a box or sale!

If you ask me Luxe Pineapple is definitely going to be changing the beauty box trend.

Plus they don’t play any games when it comes to shipping! I placed my order on April 10, my order was shipped on April 11 and arrived on April 15!

Are any of you Luxe Pineapple subscribers? If so, what are your favorite boxes so far?

If you’re not currently a subscriber then I highly recommend signing up!

Vera Mona Color Switch

Hey Belleza’s,

Confession Time: I’m a messy person when it comes to doing makeup. You can ask my cousin or my daughter, I have a very bad habit of wiping my brushes on my shirt or pants when I need to do a quick color change. My cousin has looked at me in horror when she sees me doing it. You honestly don’t want to know how many pants and shirts have fell casualty to makeup stains that just won’t come off.

I know that there are products out there to help quickly clean your brushes, but the ones I’ve come across are sprays, and I honestly don’t want to leave my brushes wet nor do I have the time to wait for them to dry.

Then I came across the Vera Mona Color Switch Duo.

 

SAMSUNG CSC

 

Let me tell you how this ingenious beauty cleaning tool will be changing your beauty cleaning routine.

 

SAMSUNG CSC

The Vera Mona Color Switch is basically a brush cleaning sponge that will fully remove eye shadow, blush, and any powder makeup from your makeup brushes without having to get your brushes wet. Using it is super easy! Just simply take whatever brush, for example a eyeshadow brush, you want to clean and wipe it back and forth against the sponge.

Take a look at the quick Instagram video I made on how easy it is to clean here.

The rough texture of the sponge helps to loosen up all the pigments on the brush so that it all comes off leaving you with a nice, clean brush ready that’s ready to be dipped into the next color!

 

SAMSUNG CSC

Cleaning the sponges are super easy, simply flip the sponge over to the other side or you can was them when needed. When you’re ready for a new sponge you can purchase a refill from the website.

I have to say that I was surprised by how easy and fast it was to clean my brushes between colors. This is definitely a must have cleaning tool to have for all beauty lovers out there! Vera Mona, my clothes thank you!

Vera Mona offers a total of three Color Switch products: Color Switch Solo, Color Switch Duo and the Color Switch Proband.

The Color Switch Solo is used just for cleaning your brushes and the Color Switch Proband is a cool band that is worn on your arm to easily clean brushes when doing makeup on clients.

I have the Color Switch Duo and not only does it clean your makeup brushes but is it doubles as a wet sponge for those moments you want to apply your eye shadow wet! You see that white sponge in the center? All you have to do is wet the sponge (just add a few drops of water to the top), dip your brush in the sponge and then into the shadow or pigment of your choice!

I swear I wish I had this in my life sooner!

As makeup lovers, it’s a known fact that you can never have too many brushes. So I love that they also carry a dual ended makeup brush. The quality of the brush is really great and the bristles are very soft yet firm. I typically carry these brushes in my makeup bag, that way I have more room for my makeup.

Have you guys tried any of the Vera Mona Color Switch? If so, do you love them as much as I do?

If not, do you think this would be a handy tool to have on your makeup table?

Vera Mona Color Switch – $16.99-$39.99

Vera Mona Dual Ended Brush -$9.99

Target Spring Beauty Box

Hey Belleza’s

Did you guys catch my post a week or so back on Facebook telling you about the Target Spring Beauty Box? Did you all take advantage of the fact that it was only $5 and included free shipping?

 

SAMSUNG CSC

I know I did! I ended up buying two of them! Why? Because from what they listed on the site there were two products alone that were valued at $26! There was no way I was going to pass that up. Especially because one of the products I currently use and love!

Here’s what I received:

SheaMoisture Superfruit Complex 10-in1 Renewal System Shampoo (Deluxe Sample)

SAMSUNG CSC

Sulfate-free, antioxidant-rich shampoo helps to renew vibrancy for dull, lackluster hair.

 

TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray (Deluxe Sample)

SAMSUNG CSC

Achieve maximum hold without stiffness or stickiness. Sprays on dry.

 

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream (Deluxe Sample)

SAMSUNG CSC

Non-greasy, skin-quencher instantly absorbs like a gel, but intensely moisturizes like a cream.

 

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set (Full Size)

SAMSUNG CSC

A lightweight spray that locks-in your makeup for all-day extended wear.

 

Maybelline Color Elixir by Color Sensational Lip Color (Full Size)

SAMSUNG CSC

A trio of concentrates delivers the color of a lipstick, the care of a balm, and the shine of a gloss.

 

The one product that I’m super excited about is the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Spray & Set. If you haven’t yet, make sure to read my review on it here.

It’s probably obvious to say but this box was well worth the $5, I would have even paid more for it.

Scentbird – A Monthly Subscription Box for Perfumes!?

Sent for Review

You can read my full disclosure policy here.

Hey Belleza’s

If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that not too long ago I had posted about being ready to try new and unique subscription boxes. Well the time has come and I’m so excited to share them with you!

If you’re a perfume lover like I am you are going to love Scentbird!

SAMSUNG CSC

Scentbird is a monthly subscription perfume box that sends you a 30 day supply of authentic designer every month for $14.95.

I literally jumped for joy when I came across this subscription box. I’m a perfume fanatic but the one issue I tend to run across is that I’ve never in my life finished a bottle of perfume. I have so many bottles and have yet to make a dent in them, mainly because I just can’t wear the same scent every day. I’m always wearing something different based on my outfit or how I’m feeling. At the moment, my collection of perfumes is stopping me from buying more. I’ve even tried buying the smaller bottles and I still can’t seem to finish them.

Signing up and picking the fragrance you want is super easy! When you go to sign up you are automatically taken to their Fragrance Profile Quiz and are asked a series of questions to help them determine which fragrances you will like. I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant about the quiz but they really did a good job at nailing down my scent preferences.

Once you’re done, you will be given a variety of fragrances that you can choose from.

Scentbird-Perfume-Subscription-box-10 Scentbird-Perfume-Subscription-box-11

See more than one fragrance you want to try and worried you might forget it about next month? No worries! Just add it to your “Perfume Queue”. Also, if you hover your mouse over a perfume it will give you a detailed description of it.

Scentbird-Perfume-Subscription-box-13

For my first fragrance I decided to choose Dolce & Gabbana 3 L’imperatrice Eau De Toilette and let me tell you it smells amazing! This is definitely something I would have chosen if I had gone to the store and smelled it in person.

SAMSUNG CSC

Succulent exotic fruits and bright pink florals give way to a musky, appetite-arousing base. PERSONALITY: THE STAR Flamboyant and energetic, for L’Imperatrice life is a movie and she is its heroine. All heads turn when she enters a room. Vibrant, magnetic she exudes charisma and force of character. – scentbird.com

When you receive your initial box, your perfume sample will arrive in a very sleek and modern Purse Spray so that you can easily apply your perfume sample and carry it with you wherever you go. Then going forward you will only receive the perfume sample, so you want to make sure that you do not throw away your Purse Spray when you finish your first sample.

SAMSUNG CSC

Replacing the perfume vials is very simple. Simply twist and pull off the top of the spray and Voila!

I’m truly happy with this subscription box and am looking forward to choosing my next fragrance for next month.

Are you ready to sign up for your very own box? If so, feel free to use my referral link (click here) to sign up and take the Fragrance Profile Quiz. Once you’ve selected your fragrance be sure to use the coupon code: SUMMERBIRD to get 15% off your first month!
