This week I will be 11 weeks pregnant and while the morning sickness hasn’t left me (by any means), I am feeling much more normal and like my old self in the evenings. Which means I can get back into the swing of things: a.k.a. my life! This morning sickness grew to be a lot more severe than I ever anticipated, knocking me out for days at a time, so I am very grateful to be past the worst of it and that I’m finally able to “see the light at the end of the tunnel”. 🙂
So for today’s post it’s a late unboxing of BoxyCharm‘s April box! 😀 Because, while it IS a bit late….who doesn’t love unboxings, right?!
My April BoxyCharm‘s Unboxing
I love the boxes that BoxyCharm always sends their products in. It’s cute, sturdy, and can be used for so many different things around the house. My number one favorite — organizing my makeup drawers!
Here’s a quick snapshot of everything that was inside my box. I was really excited when I gave this box a once over. Eyeshadow palettes are always a win in my book and everything else looked great!
First thing that I grabbed for was Cool Way’s Smoothing Lotion. I’d never heard of this brand before, but the product was really familiar to me. I am always using smoothing lotions in my hair after shows to help control the frizz. So this product will definitely be put to good use in the days ahead!
I’ve heard of Vincent Longo products before, but this is the first time I was able to give them a try. This is their double-sided eye pencil that features two complementary shadows that, according to the description I received “allows you to create a variety of eye looks”. The colors come off really smooth, and while the blues aren’t colors that I would typically wear, I’ll definitely give this a try! 🙂
Perfume, normally, would be really exciting. But because of the morning sickness…I have to admit I didn’t even try to smell it. But! With that said, I have heard nice things about Harvey Prince perfume and am looking forward to being able to wear it!
OFRA is a popular brand in the BoxyCharm boxes, and this time I got a loose Derma Mineral Powder that has a lot of shimmer/sheen to it. I haven’t tried it out yet (I wore almost NO makeup during the month of April due to my morning sickness) but I am eager to give it a try. I am not sure how it applies, but if it comes off really shimmery I plan on using it as a highlight. 🙂
Last, but certainly not least, is the Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palette! If you remember, back in December they sent out the original Coastal Scents Revealed palette, so I was thrilled that they were sending out another palette. I love the first one, and while I am typically not big into mauve/red eyeshadow colors, I know I’ll definitely be using the pinks in this palette. So pretty!

Katie, so sorry for not coming around lately. I have not forgotten you but Life has gotten me at the moment! I have never tried those Revealed palettes but every time I see them I promise myself I need to try lol. Those purple shades look really nice! Will be flying to New York tomorrow- super excited. Hope your pregnancy is doing great, Love Sissi
