I will always keep my opinions on the products honest, true and my own.

So lets get into this months box!

img_1454The theme for this month was Summer in the Desert, all based around this amazing palette from IBY. Now for the goodies!

IBY Beauty; Desert Vibes Palette                                                                        Retail Price $20

This was the star of the show in this months box! This palette was well worth it for this box! I was pretty excited when they sneaked this on their Instagram because even though I’m sure I have shades pretty similar to all of these in this palette it’s still nice to get a pretty warm palette! Now when I actually opened up the palette and swatched this I was so impressed. These are some of the most buttery, creamy and pigmented shadows I have worked with! This is a rock start palette and with the pop of color added by the blue it offers so many different options for different eye looks. I am so impressed with not only the pigmentation but the blendability of these shadows. Such a great palette! I will be using this a lot and I may need to try out one of the other palettes IBY has on their website!

Skone Costmetics; Insanely Intense Tattooed Eyeliner; Shade-Plum             Retail Price $15

I was super excited for this when I realized that it was a PURPLE! I absolutely love purple eyeliner and I used to wear purple in my waterline all the time because it really makes my green eye’s pop but I got away from eye liner for so long I forgot how much I love how this looks! This liner is super easy to apply and is a felt tip. Even though this is a plum colored liner it is darkly pigmented and almost looks as though it could be black. I really love the formula on this because it dries down and looks great! Plus I am happy with anything other than a black liner!

Perse Professional Cosmetics; Smearproof Lipliner; Shade- Nudist               Retail Price $23

I haven’t heard of this company before but this is a really nice lip liner. It’s extremely creamy and applies nicely to the lips. One thing I noticed with this pencil however is that it was almost such a soft and creamy texture that the point on the pencil would almost smoosh down if I applied too much pressure. The other weird thing about this product is the shape of the pencil. It has an odd shape that make’s it alittle interesting to sharpen but other than that it’s a nice shade and a nice pencil. I also wanted to note that I couldn’t find a link for this pencil. Perse seem’s to be a whole sale brand. Update: When I was looking for the shade I saw that Perse seems to be an extension of Sorme because the lip liner is manufactured by Sorme.

Sorme Cosmetic’s; Lipstick; Shade- Bliss                                                 Retail Price $22

As we all know I’m a lipstick junkie and I was super excited to get this in the box this month. I was pleasantly surprised with the shade as well. In the bullet the color looks much darker than what it applies but I really love this shade. There is a shimmer to the formula but not a sparkle. This is also seems to be a moisturizing lipstick which I like. The only problem I have with traditional lipsticks is they don’t last through eating and drinking and that is why I normally like stick to my liquid lips. This is another one I wasn’t able to find and link because Sorme seems to be a whole sale company.

Jivi; Exfoliating Face Wash; Lemongrass                  Retail Price $12

To be honest I forgot that this came in the box until I was reviewing the pricing sheet. This wasn’t an item I was particularly excited about. When I opened it up and put a little on my hand just to feel the consistency it looked like baby poop. Yes I know that is kind of extreme but it really looks disgusting. The pump is an odd one as well because when you push down on the top it’s almost like it’s supposed to come out in a foam but doesn’t. The consistency is weird as well. It’s some where between a cream and a liquid foam. The other thing I can’t stand on this is the smell! Obviously the scent is along the lines of lemongrass but there is something else with this that just makes it really hard for me to use it on my face. I also don’t feel like this has any sort of grit to it to help with exfoliating. But I will say when I used it my skin did feel pretty smooth afterward but I don’t really feel like there was anything spectacular about this face wash. This was a flop in the box for me.

So again this month there are some price discrepancies with what they have listed and what I was able to research. I’m not sure of any of these prices as I couldn’t price out two of the times because the websites I found didn’t have anything listed for the lipstick and the lip liner. As for the palette the info card stated $25 when online through IBY the palette is only $20, the eyeliner was another one that I found for $15 on the website but the info card listed for $19. The face wash was also wrong but when you look at the website there are three different options for the face wash and the special edition one retails for $18 as stated on the info card but the one we received is only $12.

Now with that being said I do still like getting this box and I really love the fact that we get a new palette each month but I know I will always do my own research to determine the actual value on the box. And even though the prices listed are not accurately stated with the websites this box still is up there in value and I do think it is still worth it.

So this concludes my July Yes, Oh YAS! box. The total value for the box this month is:

$92

I found this value and even though the info card stated $107.

Again I still think this box is worth it and I really like it but I just know I need to keep up on my research to make sure it maintains being worth it!
