Benevolent Beauty Box April 2018

Another Benevolent Beauty Box is here!  April’s edition featured four items this time, but the one is basically a four-in-one by itself and is a huge item, so I’m perfectly fine with this!  Let’s get into the contents.

  • Bellapierre Colour Stay – .32 oz / $10 – (Full Size Product)  It’s essentially an eye-safe glitter glue or primer that helps cosmetic glitter or shimmer eye shadow stick in place.  I, um, I tend to use a good bit of cosmetic glitter, so this is great by itself, but it also goes well with the other products in the box.  I think this is a touch thinner and easier to apply than the Too Faced glitter glue I love, so I’ll have to see how it holds up against the classic.
  • Star Looks Makeup Remover Pen – 2.5 g / $14 – (Full Size Product)  I guess I’m good enough fixing makeup oops with a q-tip that I just never bother getting special pens.  I mean, this is great, I’ll use it, but the fact that the ingredients on the box don’t match the ones on the website make me a little worried.  On the website, it says it contains paraffin and on the box, it doesn’t.  *shrugs*
  • Manna Kadar Blossom Floral Compact – 3.2 g / $29 – (Full Size Product)  I don’t really use blush or highlighter, but it says this can be used as an eye shadow as well, so that’s probably where it’s going to go.  The colors are pretty neutral between the light, pink, and bronzeish color, so it’ll work blended together or separately, no problem.
  • Bellapierre Eye Slay – 1 set / $45 – (Full Size Product)  I received the color, Mermaid Glam, which is going to be SO much fun to try out.  There are three pots each with 2 grams of mineral eye shadow plus a brush.  One of the pots in my set is a cosmetic glitter (the super bright blue one in the middle), so GLITTER!  I’m definitely going to give this a whirl sometime soon.

Overall the value of the box comes to $98 which is probably around the lower end of average for this box.  The big item is that eye color set, and I’m glad there’s the Colour Stay glitter glue to go along with it.  I’m kind of neutral on the Manna Kadar compact and the Makeup Remover pen, but they’re still items I’ll use for sure.  As always, looking forward to next month!
