Hello beauty lovers!!! It’s finally time to show you all my last subscription box from June 2018. I am currently receiving a total of five boxes monthly. This one came on the last week of the month which didn’t bother me but, I’ve read reviews about this being “infuriating” to others.
I signed up for the three month plan at a total of $60 making that only $20 per box. What an amazing deal for 4-5 full-sized beauty products each month. This will renew automatically for another three months if I choose not to cancel.
The box is super simple but, definitely pretty. I love the pink to orange ombre. It’s a reasonable size– luckily, too big for my mailbox which is GOOD so it doesn’t sit in there and melt like my Ipsy.
If you’ve heard of the Boxycharm Beauty Box, this is the sister box to that one. I had a hard time choosing between the two but, I chose Lola because it was less popular. I knew it wouldn’t be as good but, I wanted to give it a shot. How can it ever reach it’s full potential if no one gives it a chance?
I was greeted by pink scrunchie paper pieces, a postcard, and some goodies that were perfectly unharmed and in tact, even if a bit thrown around.
What Was In My Box?!
Theme: Beauty is Universal
Maskeraide Sheet Masks
in Beauty Restore, Detox Diva, & All Nighter
“Apply the All Nighter Sheet Mask to awaken, refresh and replenish your skin. Beauty Restore Hydrating Sheet Mask formula goes to work to restore, regenerate and repair your skin leaving it silky, smooth and supple by morning. Cleanse, exfoliate, and detoxify with the Detox Diva Sheet Mask that helps to minimize pores, absorb impurities and protect from toxins and free-radicals without removing your skin’s essential natural oils.”
My Review: I’ve only used the Detox Diva and I literally just peeled it off of my face and I am scheduling this post for the morning. I’ll definitely immediately update this if I break out in a rash but I don’t see that happening. The scent of this was like a real grapefruit, tart and bitter, though there were no notes of that included. I enjoyed it, others might not. It was really juicy and soaked with serum. It was easy to attach to my face but it kept sliding off my chin area. I left it on for 15 minutes and did end up rinsing with water afterwards because there was just too much leftover liquid. The back did suggest to do this if needed. I noticed an immediate difference, my skin felt softer and more hydrated. I don’t have much else to say about the effects because I haven’t been able to observe them.
Full-Size Retail Value: $5.30 per mask
Mascara in Jet
“Creates fuller, stand out lashes, the easy-to-use handle and our lengthening brush fan out your lashes to create a bold statement! Our mascara comes in two different colors for those that prefer more than one option!”
My Review: Nah, not a fan. I like the way it made my lashes look but, the flakes kept falling underneath my eyes throughout the night.
Full-Size Retail Value: $15.00
Just Mineral Eye Polish in Bronze
“Made with 100% raw mineral powder, this highly pigmented satiny powder not only colors your eyes with shimmery, gorgeous hues but is also safe to wear long hours. Easy to use built-in sponge tip allows smooth application and seamless blending of colors. This Just Mineral Eye Polish can be used as an eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, lip, or nails.”
My Review: I did swipe this across my lid like an eyeshadow and it was a MESS. Sparkles fell everywhere around my face. I rubbed it and the goldness disappeared, all that was left was glitter. I’ll have to use it a few other ways that they suggest. I think it’s pretty but honestly, kind of useless.

Glo by Glory
Glo Stix in Honey Bun
“She’s a bad mama jamma from her head down to her toes. She’ll be the prettiest little purse nugget and she’ll wow the crowd. The girl’s got pigment that packs a punch! Pair her with confidence & high heels and you’ll be the sweetest thing walking. Treat your sweet heart with your new sweetheart, Glo Stix. She’s full coverage, comfortable and long lasting. Worried about your Glo Stix transferring? Don’t fret, she’ll stay put.”
My Review: SO PRETTY! I am in love with this lip color. The formula is “semi-matte” because it leaves a little bit of a gloss that I LOVE. This stuff was easy to apply and extra long-lasting and non-transferring. It took multiple washes and soaps to wash the swatch off my arm! Highly recommend!
Full-Size Retail Value: $18.00
Tease Me Palette
“With the seductive colors of Tease Me, be ready to always have a sexy look.”
My Review: OH WOW, I have never owned an eyeshadow palette before. This is my very first one!!! You don’t understand how excited I was to play with it. Sadly, the colors do NOT stick to eyeshadow brushes well at all. Using your fingers, no matter how nasty that is, is the best way to get the colors to really show up. The foil ones are MESSY. There is a lot of fallout; don’t even think about doing your face makeup before applying eyeshadow if you’re using this palette.
I loved the names of each shade and the variety of colors and formulas. I can’t believe you can get so many colors for such a low price. It’s not the best quality ever, but the colors are beautiful and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg!
Like I said, I’ve never had an eyeshadow palette before so I’m not so sure what to say about it. If you have any questions that I didn’t answer above, feel free to ask me in my comments and I’ll try my best to give you an educated answer.

The Beauty Creations Tease Me Palette in Action
All shades were swatched above except Orgasm. I could barely see it and accidentally did Tempting right over it, oops!
A look I created:
First, I primed my face and eyelids with Marcelle’s BB Cream in Golden Glow. Then, I concealed around my eyebrows with Benefit’s Boi~ing Airbrush concelear in No. 3 and under my eyes, down my nose, on my chin, and around my lips with Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Concealer in Tan.
I covered both of my lids first with the shade Lies in the Tease Me Palette. Then, I used Peaches for the outer V and I blended it all the way into my crease and pretty high up, close but not all the way to my eyebrow. Then, I made everything pop by adding Please Me to the whole lid. I went back over the crease with Peaches, added more Please Me, and continued this until I was satisfied with my look.
I ran Please Me along my lower lash line lightly. To finish it off, I dabbed a bit of Lust on my inner eye area.
On my eyelashes, I used Milk Makeup’s KUSH High Volume Mascara in Boom – Blackest Black.
For my face, I used Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Foundation w/ SPF 15 in Tan Honey. I dusted on top of that with Sephora Collection’s Matte Perfection Powder Foundation in Shade 26 Neutral Sand. To highlight my cheek bones, I painted them a bit too heavily with The Beauty Crop’s Glow Milk Liquid Highlighter. I was intimidated by the whiteness of this highlight so I topped it off with Hikari Cosmetics’ Shimmer Bronzer in Radiate. I used that same bronzer for the center (contour?) of my cheeks.
On my lips, I used Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai.
