Yes, Oh Yas! : November 2018

Yes, Oh Yas! is a new monthly subscription box ! They offer 3-7 full size products each month for $14.99 plus shipping. This box allows you to discover new make up and beauty brands.

Yes, Oh Yas! actually reached out to me to become an affiliate for their subscription box.  They did give me a code to share with you all for 10% off you first box.

CODE: CURVYE

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

So lets get into this months box!

The theme for this month was Girls Can! As you can see we got some really fun stuff!

Aesthetica Lip Contour Kit                                                               Retail Price $40

To keep up on their palette a month promise we received a lip palette this month. I personally am not the biggest fan of lip palettes because they get really messy and I don’t like having to apply a lip product with a brush. However this kit does come with a really neat insert with instructions for different types of lip looks. It also comes with two double ended lip liners and  fine point lip brush. The lip colors themselves are very creamy and pigmented and when playing around on my hand they layered and mixed together really well too. I will give this a try and see if I can make it work but I don’t think this will be something staying in my collection.

Beauty Creations; Unicorn Dream- Unicorn Tears Metallic Liquid Highlighter              Retail Price $14.99

I think highlighting drops are so much fun! They are pigmented and blinding and end up even more blinding when you add a powder on top. This is the lightest shade in for this product which I appreciate because I can apply any time of the year on my pasty white skin and it still looks nice and blends in nicely. I like the formula; it has some stability so that when applied it will stay where you put it and not run all over the place. I can’t wait to use these more in the holidays to get more of an icy glow!

Mirabella Beauty; Brilliant Mineral Highlighter; Shade Swirling Pearl     Retail Price $42

So speaking of a powder highlight to make a liquid highlight pop even more here we have Mirabella Beauty! This highlighter is stunning! I have been wearing it non stop since I got it and I love how beautiful is applies to the skin. This has a very soft formula that is shimmery without being glittery. I have been enjoying it and appreciate the soft pinkish white hue going into the winter months.

Sorme Treatment Cosmetics; Brow Lift Highlighting Pencil                  Retail Price $19

Lets just start by saying, I am not a fan of brow pencils like this. I actually don’t ever use them because I don’t feel the need for them. Now when I get things like these in subscriptions I am always willing to give them a try to see if I really am missing out on a product like this. Turns out I’m not. This pencil is terrible. It swatches creamy and pigmented but when applied to the eye it gets cakey and looks messy under the brow. I am not a fan by any means and will be tossing this.

Crown Brushes; Deluxe Badger Oval Shadow Brush      Retail Price $2.99

Yay for another brush! As you all know brushes are my favorite! I always find fun uses for any brush I get. Now the problem I have with this is the retail price listed on the website very inexpensive as are almost all crown brushes. Yes the fact sheet from Yes, Oh Yas! says this brush is $19…I am so confused! I can’t tell if they are getting it from a different retailer that would market it for so much more or what but this is really concerning when looking at the over all value of the box! Does any one know?!

 

So what is the over all value for this months box….

State value is $145

Actual value is $118.98

Yes still a great value and yes got some great products but this continues to happen and I’m just confused as to where they are getting their information when putting out values. I do really love this subscription and I am trying to keep an open mind as they are still growing and in their first year but we will see how things go.

One thing Yes, Oh Yas! advertises on IG is a subscriber loyalty box once you have completed your first full year of the subscription. My year came up in October but I forgot so I sent a message the beginning of this month and they requested an email. I emailed both the one on the website as well as the contact listed on my reoccurring emails each month and I received no response. I reached back out via IG and they said my request has been logged and that they would send out shipping details when it shipped. As I am writing this I have yet to get a shipping email but I am hoping by the time this is posted I will either have the box in hand or have tracking information. Fingers crossed as I really like this subscription and want it to be great, not a flop so we will see.

Update: The day after I finished up this post I got my shipping notification for my loyalty box! Keep an eye out for that post!

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
