November 2014 Bellabox: Review

It’s all about the glitz and the glam of the social media era in this month’s Bellabox! Insta-Glam, the theme of the November Bellabox, is a celebration of the digital age and contains a good mix of skincare and makeup products which I really appreciate! I love it when the Bellaboxes have more makeup products. I mean I know I already have a truck-load of makeup but, who can resist more?!
When the turquoise-blue polka-dotted box came, I was so eager to unbox it because of the sneak peeks on @BellaboxAsia that got me excited! As with the usual Bellaboxes, this one came wrapped in a monochrome chevron rice paper with a cute yellow sticker indicating Bellabox’s Instagram account name. Since it’s all about the social media age, the product information card was printed with an Instagram layout on it as well, well-fitted to the theme.
On to unwrapping the box! I love surprises and I kind of like the fact that I get to unwrap a “gift box” every month c/o Bellabox! Thank you for showering me with so much love every month!

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette – $51.50 for 30g
I have tried Coastal Scents’ eyeshadows before and the pigmentation is pretty decent given the price point. Showcasing 2 matte and 2 metallic neutral eyeshadows from the Revealed Palette in a deluxe sample, you can play around with the shades before you commit to the entire palette. FYI, the palette contains  20 eyeshadows with shades very similar to the Urban Decay Naked palettes as shown below.
The 4 shades in the sample palette remind me of Booty Call, Tease, Blackout and Snakebite in the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette. Swatches of the sample palette here:
Sleek Dip It Duo Liner Mascara in 24 Karat – $13.90
This is a dual-ended mascara and eyeliner that is very handy if you are someone who likes to touch-up on your makeup! I have quite a bunch of Sleek products and I’m quite looking forward to this because the eyeliner is in a very pretty gold shade which is perfect for a glamorous eye look for an event or just for an evening out with your date!
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil – $70 for 100ml
Heard quite a lot about this oil on social media recently and I am so glad that this little bottle came in the Bellabox! I swear, the Bellabox is really good for trying out new products! So this oil treatment can be used on the hair, face and body and is made of 98.8% natural ingredients! It supposedly will give you a nice, healthy glow if you use it on your body.
Skeyndor Caresse Body Serum – $168 for 100ml
I have never heard of this brand but this has been in the industry for 20 years and running! Skeyndor is under the parent company, Theresa Beauty & Slimming, and they are highly experienced in facial and slimming treatments. The Skeyndor Caresse Body Serum is formulated with a selection of red flower extract (orchid, ylang-ylang, wild rose and poppy) with purifying abilities that seeks to nourish your skin. I love the sweet floral scent to it! Very good for travelling, especially when you are heading to a wintry place. More information on the brand can be found here.
Intercosmo Il Magnifico (The Magnificent) – $50 for 150ml
A hairspray with the texture of a mask, this bottle of convenience is a delight! As I have mentioned earlier in all other Bellabox reviews, I have a major love for travel-sized hair serums/sprays to tame my frizzy ends. Hence, this one just adds to my collection! I took a whiff and it smells like cologne but oh well, I’ll still use it so long it works for my hair! Thumbs up!
Salcura Antiac Activ Liquid Spray – $29.80 for 50ml
Apparently this seemingly uninteresting bottle turned out to be an anti-acne spray! If you know me enough, I often talk about my acne and my post-acne scars and I am going to give this a try to see if it really works in preventing acne! I am not expecting much but I do feel that this anti-bacterial formula would at least work in killing the acne-causing bacteria on my skin.
Cathay Doll Sweet Dream Watersplash Essence With L-Gluthathione – $18 for 30g
A Korean product that transforms into mineral water droplets for gentle, soothing nourishments. I have a feeling I will like this product because usually, the moisturising range produced by Korean brands are quite effective in hydrating the skin!
