A peek inside!
An info card listed all of the item’s inside October’s box, along with brief descriptions and retail values for each one.
I haven’t even cracked open the seal on this under eye cream yet, but can already smell the unmistakeable sweet scent of pumpkin spice. Mmm! This brand is totally new to me and based on the scent alone, I’m excited to try it. The cruelty-free formula is made with key ingredients that include pumpkin seed oil, shea butter, and xylitol that work together to help smooth fine lines & wrinkles, minimize the look of dark circles, and more.
This long-wearing mascara promises volume, length and definition with just a single application. Its exclusive micro brush applicator provides precise application to even the smallest lashes and can easily get to the base of lash line & into the very corners of the eye. The formula is made without fragrance or toxic ingredients making it ideal for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
IBY BEAUTY Glow Up on the Go Kit ($24)
The “Glow Up on the Go” kit above consists of a shimmery gold Cosmetic Bag, three IBY BEAUTY Radiant Glow Highlighters, and a Radiant Glow Fan Brush. The cosmetic bag features a gold IBY zipper pull and is fully lined. All 3 travel-size highlighters are finely milled and made with vegan/cruelty-free ingredients. The shades are (from left to right): Purrr, Prosecco, and Pink Pearl. The rose gold electroplated fan brush is designed to apply and diffuse highlighter for a gorgeous strobe effect. It’s also vegan & cruelty-free!
This pore-camouflaging primer is designed to help hide the appearance of flaws without leaving your skin feeling sticky or greasy. It has a smooth, creamy texture that provides the ideal canvas for makeup while reducing the visibility of fine lines, pores and redness. It’s enriched with Vitamin E, cotton seed extract & marula seed oil and is free of parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, and gluten.
I recently pared down my nail polish collection, so I’m happy to add in some new ones. I absolutely LOVE the pretty shade that Trust Fund Beauty describes as an “iridescent black and red with a dark brown base”. I also love the fact that the formula is both vegan and cruelty-free. 🙂
I was really impressed with the October 2020 Self-Y Box. I liked the mix of both makeup and skincare products, along with the fact that they were all full size (minus the IBY BEAUTY bundle which was just as good as — if not better than — a single full sized item). My favorite items were the Pumpkin & Spice Under Eye Cream and Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish. The total retail value of everything in October’s box was $140! 😀
