Luxe Box: Fall 2014

It's that time again! The Fall 2014 Luxe Box arrived on my door step a couple days ago and it's always that feeling of excitement when you see something waiting for you! This is my forth Luxe Box however, it was the first time that I had upgraded my box. I decided to get the Get Up & Glow limited edition for $5 dollars more. 

The Get Up & Glow Box is great, because I upgraded my box, I was able to see all the products I was getting before hand which was nice but in a way, ruined the surprise of it all. I love getting a Luxe Box and ripping it open as fast as I can to see what is inside because it feels like Christmas but this time, there wasn't as much excitement because I already new what was coming.

AG Hair - High & Dry: AG's High & Dry is a versatile, high-grip, spray that infuses hair with natural lift and a matte textured finish.
This hair spray is great, I have been putting it in my purse and taking it with me for a freshen up throughout the day. I like that it gives me a matte texture, it doesn't add any shine or gloss which I really don't need and helps mask hair that might be getting a little greasy (always).

Sweet Leaf Bath Co. - Blush Body Wash: Blush Body Wash is handcrafted with a luxurious & nutrient rich blend of Coconut, Olive, Jojoba and Hempseed oils.
This stuff smells amazing! It has a very watery consistency which isn't a bad thing but since I don't use a loofa or anything like that, it is hard to have a lot of product in your hand. What I do like about it though is that it lathers so well! I am not fond of body washes that don't lather, I feel like nothing gets clean until I see some bubbles at work!

So Susan - Concealer Quad: A compact of 4 concealer shades that cover dark spots, blemishes and minor imperfections. The texture blends seamlessly into the skin to create a flawless complexion.
This concealer quad is great, right now I have just been using it with my fingers but I will be getting a new brush soon to use with it. I have been using it to define my nose a little more so the range of shades is great for me. They are all very warm shades which work well for my skin. 

Amarte - Aqua Veil Pure Hydration Serum: Rich in natural herbs and intensive moisturizing ingredients, this deeply hydrating formula optimizes skin's ability to absorb and retain moisture.
These Amarte samples are great - I am not the best when it comes to remembering to put on moisturizers however, this serum just feels so good on my skin and in a few short days, I can already feel that my skin feels softer.

Amarte - Aqua Cream: Functional organic ingredients control skin's oil-moisture balance and increase softness.
This Aqua Cream is my new favourite; I am already looking to get a full size of this. Putting it on, it doesn't make your face sticky or oily, it absorbs right away and feels so nice. I have very oily skin and I feel like my skin is a bit more balanced, if that is the placebo effect or not - it doesn't matter to me, so I haven't had to powder throughout the day as much as I used to and my skin is looking much clearer and fine lines (read: wrinkles) are looking less noticeable - hooray!

Burt's Bees - Lip Gloss in "Autumn Haze": Rich pearlized colour combines with natural oils rich in nutrients to leave your lips soft, shiny and 100% naturally beautiful.
I haven't always been a big lip gloss person, mainly because my hair acts as a magnet to it and then I just look like a crazy person however, this Burt's Bees is pretty good in my books. Not alot of product comes out on the wand at a time which is nice because it just gives your lips that dewy look rather than the I just ate a glazed donut look. I have been putting it over my deep red lipsticks with a bit of gold shimmery eye shadow in the middle of my bottom lip to give a bit more dimension. 

Loose Button - Blush Brush: This brush is designed with an angled shape and innovative bristle composition to apply blush gently and effortlessly around the contours and hollows of cheeks for a natural-look.
This brush is nice but since I have a blush brush I am in love with, I haven't used this much. Nothing wrong with it but a girl can only have so many blush brushes right?
