FabFitFun Winter 2018


FabFitFun is a quarterly (4 boxes each year, 1 box per season) subscription box with beauty, fitness, and lifestyle items. It is $49.99 USD per box with more than $200 plus worth of products. I purchased this box with my own money.

What I got:

Thrive Causemetics - Eye Brightener

I quite enjoy the twist up brightener and I wear it in my inner lower eye line and inner corners. It brightens the eyes with a champagne sheen.

Bite Beauty - Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Meringue

I LOVE Bite and I am so happy to get one in this box. The color is peachy nude and it's so pretty. But it can be a bit washed out on my lips. I still like it for a nude look!

Sherrie Matthews - Jade Roller
I saw these jade rollers all over the places and I almost got myself one at Marshalls. I like giving myself a face massage and this will come in handy! It can also help massaging in products at the same time.

Blaq - Hydrogel Eye Masks
These eye masks contains hyaluronic acid for hydration and charcoal for detox and de-puff. Yes to both please. I love getting sheet masks and eye masks!

Ahava - Cream Mask
I have never tried a face product from this brand, always just hair and body stuff. I love masks and I do a face mask at least once a day. This mask contains mineral spring water, shea butter, and vitamin E which are all very rich and hydration. Very suitable for winter in a winter box!

Anthropologie X Mer-Sea - Body Cream in Coconut Sugar
This all natural body cream contains sea whip extract (what the hell is that??), sea silt and Dead Sea salt for nourishment and hydration. Another good product for the winter! It smells quite coconut and it is thick but not greasy. I like it!

Lele Sadoughi - Circle Necklace
This is a simple and cute necklace that is silver plated. I have worn it already and it was a nice addition to a simple outfit. It's very lightweight which I like too.

Bearpaw - Headband and Glove
This is quite a cute set for the colder time. I like the headband as I like to wear my pony or bun all the time and this will be perfect to add onto that. The pop-top glove is also perfect for the tech addicts like all of us!

Mark & Graham - Throw
This is actually my least excited product in this box. I think the material and color of this throw is just not cute and nice at all! To be honest, I am ready to re-gift this and hope someone else can enjoy it.

Purple Dotticure


Dotticures are easy and fun to do and they look pretty impressive right? Let's start.

For the base, I used this gorgeous lilac purple polish by Flormar which I got when I was in Spain.

Then I simply started painting dots with two tones of purples.

And I added a layer of silver dots on top and we are done!

Polishes used:
Silver - Mineral Fusion
Purple - Kiko
Lilac - Flormar
Magenta - Julep

This month's bag is a dark purple color base with heart pattern all over it. I think it's pretty cute! 

What I got:

Tarte - Blush in Quirky
I love Tarte and I am happy to see the Amazonian Clay blush in this bag. It's a nice peachy pink color that works really well with my skin tone. These blushes are pigmented and wear well!

Helios - Eyeshadow in Pinky's Up
This is an interesting textured shadow that feels bouncy and it changes from a cream to powder once applied. I am so happy with the color I got. It's a shimmery pinkish champagne which is super pretty!

Ciate - Translucent Setting Powder
I didn't know Ciate does powders! I think this brand is coming out with more makeup products. This is a finely milled powder for the face and it says it can also be used as a dry shampoo! Cool!

Skyn Iceland - Brightening Eye Serum
I like getting eye creams and serums in these subscription bags because they last a long time. This serum has cucumber extract to sooth and microalgae to improve fine lines and dark circles. Sounds pretty good!

Juice Beauty - Illuminating Primer
This primer is loaded with vitamins C and E as well as other antioxidant-rich ingredients! The consistency is lightweight so it is like a serum. It is a bit illuminating but not over killed. I think I will enjoy this!
