My FabFitFun box arrived and I'm super happy I purchased this box. I personally feel like this box was worth the hype and the money. It has a little bit of everything.
Quarterly Subscription (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter)
My first impressions on the palette is the shadows are nice. I haven't picked up any Tarte palettes in a while so they seem good.
The sex kitten liner I'm on the fence on. Mainly because I swatched it on the back of my hand and after about ten minutes I went in to check if it smudges and (drum roll).......it smudged. I then tested if it was waterproof and of course it isn't, obviously because they didn't claim it to be so. This to me is a deal breaker because my eyes are naturally watery so I'm afraid it may just run off.
However, I am holding off judgment until I actually try the products on my eyes. *Side note: I left the smudge on my hand and it seemed to hold up pretty well. Even after washing my hands, cooking, and a little bit of dishes.*
In the packaging they two pearls look the same color. However, if you enlarge the photo on the right you can tell that the two pearls are different in color. One is more of a mermaid color with flecks of pink and blue and the other is more of a champagne color. Very pretty none the less.
My one gripe would be that there are ridges in the pearls if you look at the ring from a top angle. I'm not sure if that came from placing the pearls on the ring or if mine was just messed up. I'm being petty here but the mermaid colored pearl has a bunch of scuff marks on it as well. Which is why I don't know if the ridges are intentional or if I seriously just got a bad one.
I am excited for this. We just went to Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO and I wish I would of had this instead of lugging around my bag. There's nothing wrong with my purse because of the material, nothing got wet but I didn't want to carry it around because it was bigger in size. This perfect for carrying just your ID, credit/debit card, a little cash or your room key. I love that it has a wrist strap too which makes carrying it around a lot easier.
The last this or that item is this Summer & Rose Beach Towel with the pineapple print. This retails for $55 and you got to choose between this or the Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case that retails for $58. Both the train case and the beach towels had two different prints.
The retail price of my box is $342.99. Am I happy with everything that I got? YES. The Foreo Luna fofo is something that I would use everyday. The palette and liquid liner are both things I can not wait to try. The ring? Who doesn't love jewelry? Sunscreen should be used on the daily. So, thank you Coola. Hair protectant is something I don't use often because I don't heat style much but when I do use heat on my hair, it is a must have. The wallet is a nice thing to have when you don't want to carry much and the ring dish is a simple piece that can go anywhere with anything. And obviously, who doesn't love a super soft towel that you can use for anything?
This box was definitely worth the $49.99 in my opinion.
