Recently I did a haul of new makeups from Vegan Cuts subscription beauty box. I mentioned that I am going to do a GRWM a.k.a. get ready with me vis-a-vis real-time road test so I can tell you which of these makeups are worth your buck. If you’re unfamiliar with Vegan Cuts, it’s a subscription box which originally started with snacks; yeah, I remember subscribing to it when it first came out few years ago then canceled because I am not a snacker to begin with. As to why I subscribed in the first place? well just to try out new brands not available in my local whole foods. Fast forward to first day in 2018, I received an email for a discounted past beauty box, pay only $55 for products well worth over $200. I thought it was a good deal!
This past beauty box includes products I have been eyeing for a while so given that they are heavily discounted, my excitement was through the roof when the box arrived. I also want to inform you that I subscribed to their quarterly boxes so that’s something to look forward to. Here are the products you will see in my GRWM video below:
Au Naturale lipstick (retail $25). I’m thinking this is part of the brand’s previous collection because I own few lipsticks from them, bullet and liquid, and they come in a different more sleek packaging (black, not silver as photographed). Even the font is different from this lipstick, thankfully it doesn’t smell moldy or funky. The shade is light pink and has sheer finish.
Ofra Rainbox Lips Ritz Gloss (retail $24). I don’t own anything from Ofra so lipstick is always a neat entry point. All five shades provide adequate hydration with barely-there finish.
Manna Kadar Beauty Step 1 Prime (retail $24). This is supposedly a primer for eyes and lips but I used it as concealer because I originally thought it was.
Thrive Causemetics Triple Threat Color Stuck (retail $ 36). The shade I received is called Olivia, a peachy pink shade with shimmery finish.
HAN Skin Care Cosmetics 100% Natural Eyeshadow (retail $15). The shade I received is called Romance, a coppery rose gold which applies smoothly.
Emani Eye Trio (retail $20). I have Tantalizing which features neutral earthy tones.
PHB Natural and Organic Eye Liner (retail $12.08). I haven’t bought eyeliners in a while so getting one (black shade) is a bonus.
Jersey Shore Eyelash Curler (retail $30). Seriously my lash curler from Shu is already 13 years old so a replacement is inevitable!
BWC Full Volume Mascara (retail $17). This is one mascara I have been meaning to try so I am happy to receive this. While I like Tarte lights camera lashes (check out the rest of my vegan favorites last year), I am always on the hunt for good quality mascara.
Before I give you my final verdict, here’s my unboxing video in case you missed it:
Ready to see some of these in action as well as which ones are yay or nay? watch til the very end because you’re in for a surprise!
