Bellabox Singapore: JULY 2013 American Beauty

Wuzzap guys?! I'm back with another unveiling blog post because this bad boy just came to town!


Yep yep! Today I'm going to share with you what I got from my July Bellabox. Like I said in my previous post, I won't be doing unboxing videos anymore unless I feel the extra "need" to do so. I will just be unveiling the goodies thru a blog post instead. :)


TADAH!!!! (reminds me of minions hehe)
Let us now take a peek...



Before I opened the black wrapping paper, I thought this month's items won't be any good because I can't even feel any full-size product from just touching the wrapped goodies. But of course, I still went ahead and tore it open and to my surprise...!!!


This month's items are waaaayyyy better than the previous months! I mean, there's nothing in this box that I won't use. All these goodies inside really made me sooo giddy!

AMERICAN BEAUTY
Rouse the freedom seeker in you with
beauty loots from the land of liberty.
Alright! let's not waste any time here. Let me now share with you each of the items I received. Let's start with this: 

SAGE + FASTEN COMMON SENSE EAU DE PARFUM
50 ML / S$65
Do down-to-earth feminity with SAGE + fasten's signature scent, Common Sense. Prompted by the need to stay grounded and sane in today's world of madness, let this scent serve as a wake-up call to boost our inner Venus goddess. Flustered by too many things? Spiritz on this alluring concoction of florals (orchid and lotus flowers) and fruity goodness (mango, peach and lychee) and you're good to go!
My Initial Reaction: The packaging is really cute but for perfume samples, I'd appreciate it more if it's a rollerball perfume than a spray. When I smelled it, I caught a very strong scent of mango and lychee there. So it's true that it will deliver this kind of fruity smell but because I was never a fan of mango and lychee, I didn't fancy this scent so much. It's not totally a miss but definitely not a hit.


I'm really diggin' this picture! 
theBALM COSMETICS HOT MAMA SHADOW/BLUSH
7.08 G / S$24
This Hot Mama is an all-in-one shadow, blush, and highlighter... a true multi-tasker! With a gorgeous peachy-golden glow in a convenient go-anywhere compact, you'll be saying goodbye to bulky makeup bags and hello Hot Mama!

My Initial Reaction: I have always been wanting to try anything from theBalm Cosmetics but every time I swing by at SASA, I seem to always forget to check it out. That is why, I got so excited when I saw this in my loot! MAN! I soooo want this! The color and finish of this beautiful and stunning shadow/blush is perfect for summer and is just lovely no matter when and how you use it! There could be endless ways to use this magical shadow right here!



CLARK'S BOTANICAL DEEP MOISTURE MASK
50 ML / S$94
Available at noted retailers such as Lane Crawford (Hong Kong) and 10 Corso Como (Italy), Clark's Botanicals Deep Moisture Mask contains a high concentration of algae extract to revive that dry and tired look. Time to wake up to wrinkle-free, hydrated and nourished skin!
My Initial Reaction: The packaging is stunning! I love anything that comes in a classic black and white packaging. When I opened it, the first thing I noticed was its scent. It's very perfume-ish and so I thought I won't like it, but you know what? I gave it a try right there and then and I was so amazed by how lightweight it felt on my skin and how the scent didn't bother me at all. In fact I even found myself liking it. It's very easy to spread on my skin and it felt so nice. I first tried it at night and when I woke up the next day, I felt like my skin has really been hydrated and it felt very smooth and supple! I've been using it as a moisturizer for 2 1/2 days now and I can really say that this is a great product! I haven't tried to use it as a mask though but I surely will. 
YES TO CARROTS LIP TINT
2.6 ML / S$12
Give your lips the extra love it deserves! Not only does this 100% natural, paraben- and petroleum-free lip tint soothes, conditions and moisturizes your lips, it also adds a tinge of color for that additional boost to a set of gorgeous-looking lips.

My Initial Reaction:  Full-size product: YAY! I first heard about Yes To Carrots brand on YouTube but I've never really contemplated on researching about it. As you all know, I'm a lippy person so any lip product always excites me. When I saw this inside my box, I thought, "wow! yes to carrots lip tint!" It's like telling myself, it's about time to see for myself if those reviews about this brand are all true. 


So I tried it on right away and first thing I noticed was the minty feel and taste that it gave my lips. I thought that was fine. It did give my lips a hint of color and that's pretty nice! I really love lip tints because they're more lip friendly because they moisturize and hydrate my lips plus I don't have to worry about perfecting the application. So far, I'm loving this item! 
JANE TRAN BOBBY PIN SET
S$15
Express your artistic traits through what you wear in your hair - you're born to shine and stand out among the crowd! Broaden your creativity and have fun taking your pick between two eye-catching designs in a set

My Initial Reaction: These two hair clips brought me back to my younger years, hahaha. I remember wearing that same blue hair clip (only mine was black) when I first met my husband 8 years ago, LOL. I think these are pretty and so adorable. I love 'em!



But wait, there's more! I also got a gift. 
GIFT: NATIONAL DAY-INSPIRED NAIL STICKERS
Lest we forget our roots, here's a little something lovingly created by bellabox just for you. In celebration of National Day next August, ignite the patriot in you - beauty style! - don on these Singapore flag - inspired nail stickers!
My Initial Reaction: This is perfect! I love its very patriotic theme and the fact that these are nail stickers. If there's anything I really suck at, that is doing my nails. I don't have a steady hand that's why I always get into trouble whenever I'm trying to paint my nails, which is why this gift is truly perfect for me! 

So, I guess that's pretty much it. I told yah! There's nothing in this box that I didn't like. Bellabox is really full of surprises. If you still haven't signed up with Bellabox, do it now!
