Today I wanted to post an unboxing of the first BDJ Elite Box of 2014 that came in the mail the other day. I saw on their Facebook they were coming out with an elite box besides there regular box and I wanted to see the fuss about this as well since I subscribed to their other box.
The BDJ Elite Box is featuring Heroine Make. This is a brand I have never heard about as I’m not really up on Asian beauty products that well but I wanted to try it because I might like it so I took the plunge. It is from Japan and soon to be released in the Philippines in Watson’s stores. I read on somewhere while I was looking them up after I made my payment to BDJ.
The packaging on their products were so pretty and I know your not supposed to buy beauty products based on packaging but to me Asian packaging are always so cute and pull me right in every time. So let’s see what is inside and discover the Heroine inside of these products.
When I first open it up I’m greeted with these cute cards that have information about each of the products on it. I love the individual card and the design is so pretty and I’m a sucker for the prettiness in packaging especially when it is pink. When you turn it over you find the details, price and size on it and it was a little hard to read as it was a very small font but I managed.
The exciting part is opening the wrapping paper to unveil the goodies. As always it is packaged well and I love opening it up even thought I already knew what to expect it still a cool feeling. All the packaging is so pretty and very Japanese because of course it is from Japan. It’s packed with all kinds of goodness and I love just digging right in and exploring right away.
A close up all the pretty things that I received.
This Box costs 1,480php. I want to try new things and these Japanese products seemed like the first thing to dip my feet in. It comes with 8 full size products and for only 1,480php so I thought it was a deal and had no prior clue of how much these would cost individually.
I got the BOX B: Sweet Medium but you can choose from 8 different boxes with a variety of similar products just in different shades. The medium is your shade and it took me a while what box to pick because I am so indecisive and didn’t know if I should pick fair or medium because my skin tone varies and it is hard to choose sometimes. I then decided I should pick the sweet and natural look as I knew I would get more use out of them and I know I should have tried something out of my comfort zone and gone with something else but I do the natural look all the time it seemed right to. It’s also my first time trying the brand so I went with the safe option but once I try them I might go bolder. Since I got the sweet look all the products will be catered to that and I got some neutral shades which I was fine with.
Heroine Make Eyelash Fixer
This eyelash fixer will securely adhere your false lashes from one end of the eyelid to the other. Its waterproof formula is resistant to perspiration, water, and sebum. it dries fast and becomes clear when it is dry so that lashes can be glued on beautifully with almost no glue marks even when the base of the false lashes is thin.
Full Size 5 ml / 345php
This is the glue for the lashes and it sounds perfect for them. I needed some lash glue for a photoshoot I did and couldn’t find any but now I have some just in case and don’t have to go searching high and low for one.
Heroine Make Impact Eyelash #10
Add instant drama to your eyes and enhance your overall look with these false eyelashes from Heroine Make! They help create wider, brighter eyes by making your lashes look longer and fuller. These lightweight, wispy lashes helps to naturally define your eyes without looking too made-up.
Full Size / 345php
I love the natural look of these lashes and but I don’t wear lashes often and only on special occasion. These might change my mind and I might get to wear them to an event or a party (if I ever attend one). I love how wispy they are and they kind of look like my natural lashes so I would love to see what it’s like on me. If I ever wear these you’ll definitely see pictures and a review.
Heavy Rotation Jewel Eyeliner #02
This eyeliner has a super thin brush so you can create precise lines around your eyes. It contains 3 kinds of shimmering powders to give a “jewel-like” glittering finish to your eyes. It is highly resistant to tears, sweat and sebum, so you won’t have to worry about your eye makeup the whole day!
Full Size 3 ml / 595php
This looks pretty and I hope I like the color. I think it is going to be brown and sparkly according to the description but I hope it isn’t too sparkly. I hope it is easy to apply and looks good on me since I’ve never tried an eyeliner other than black but I like this and it might be neutral which will be less harsh I’m hoping on my eyes.
Heroine Make Volume and Curl Mascara #02
This waterproof mascara gives a dramatically gorgeous lengthening effect for glossy lashes, free from any clumps. It is formulated with fibers to really extend your lashes to their maximum length. It also contains Chamomile extract (moisturizing ingredient) and Camellia oil (emollient ingredient) that protects sensitive lashes from damage.
Full Size 6 g / 595php
I think I’m most excited for this mascara as I’ve been trying a few recently and wanted to add to my stash. I use to have no mascaras as I ran out to now I have 3 or 4 which is a lot for me but I actually like the options. Again, this is brown but I can use it everyday and again it is less harsh then black. I really am intrigued by the fibers which I have heard about and are quite popular and this is the first one I’m going to try so expect a review once I’ve tested it.
Heroine Make Smooth Cover Powder Clear #02
Go foundation-free with this powder that covers uneven skin surfaces and pores in one easy step and creates even, matte skin. It leaves skin looking smooth with light-diffusing particles, and absorbs extra sebum to help your makeup last throughout the whole day.
Full Size 8 g / 695php
The powder is something I know I will be using soon as I love powders as a base. I hope this matches or is clear which I think it might be but I’m not sure yet. The packaging is so pretty and I love the compact as it is sparkly but it doesn’t show up on camera.
Heroine Make Protect UV Mineral BB Cream #02
With SPF50+ PA++, this mineral BB cream with excellent whitening, anti-UV and coverage effects that illuminates skin instantly, and creates even, smooth skin without visible pores. Its light texture allows you to quickly apply and blend it on your skin.
Full Size 6 g / 595php
The BB cream is something I’m really hoping matches and this would be the 3rd one I will try and I still haven’t found a close match but I do have the Benefit Big Easy to try out as well besides this. I love the pretty pink tube and of course you know me and packaging.
Heroine Make Quick Eyebrow #03
This waterproof, resistant to sweat and water eyebrow pencil has a superfine 1.5mm diameter tip, which allows you to draw eyebrow hairs one by one to make beautiful arches from the inner to other ends. It comes in a convenient, twist pen so you don’t need to sharpen it constantly.
Full Size 0.7 g / 345php
An eyebrow pencil is something I don’t have in my makeup collection which is a shock for some probably but I never really did my brows and I usually get them done and they are shaped right and I like them so I don’t do anything but now I might and will try seeing if this makes a difference. Its exciting to try new things in your beauty routine, right?
Sun Killer Perfect Strong Plus
This sunblock features super UV blocking abilities, with a special UV Cut powder that helps the sunblock last on your skin longer. It’s waterproof and sweat-prof, so you’re free to do different activities without worries! It’s non-oily and turns transparent upon application, so your skin won’t turn unnaturally pale and oily upon application.
Full Size 0.7 g / 345php
And lastly a sunscreen which is quite nice to add and I really like apply face sunscreens when I head out. I’m excited to see if this is non-oily as my face is oily enough and hate other sunscreens and moisturizers that leave me feeling that way.
This is everything that came and I am quite impressed of the value. The total cost of all the products from this box is 3,960php! Which is not bad since I paid only 1,480php for 8 products! The prices for them individually don’t seem that bad and are quite reasonable if you can afford it and the quality doesn’t seem cheap so it is a definite win.
I’m excited to try all of these and will be doing some reviews but if you see a certain one that you really want to know more about I’d love to know and tell you.
That’s all that is inside my first ever BDJ Elite Box. I hope you enjoyed seeing inside it as much as I have and I can’t wait to play with these because isn’t that what you do with new makeup goodies? Thanks BDJ Box for this and coming out with such great boxes and making me purchase a lot of them. I guess until next time I unbox!
