Covergirl Exclusive December BDJ Box Unboxing
It is day 13 of Blogmas and I bring to you an unboxing of the December BDJ Box which is a Covergirl exclusive this month!
The December BDJ Box is here and I hear it is supposed to be amazing due to the fact it sold out in just a day after subscriptions for it started. I understand and of course December is the month of Christmas and it is kind of BDJ’s gift to us.
So let’s start unboxing to see what is inside and what goodies await!
It is a Covergirl Exclusive and by the sleeve I already knew and the little hints I saw on their Facebook page. Covergirl was actually one of the first makeup brands I bought for myself without my mom. So this was the brand that got me into makeup when I was a young teen. So this made me excited and made me reminisce of the time when I just started to dip my feet in that girly world and everything was so exciting. Before I started buying makeup for myself my mom had some Covergirl she used on me when I needed to get my makeup done for a ballet recital or school pictures. That means the packaging I used to remember seeing is somewhat like today’s which I love they kept the similar look. Now let’s jump to what’s on the card.
And here is the card for December and on the cover is Katy Perry for Covergirl. Again I explain to you the card contains but I’ll recap it
for you. There is the
introduction and a small letter from the BDJ team, product description inside and promos on the back to enter
This months sticker reads, “Be Your Best Beautiful Self.” I agree with that and love the quote again this month. They are always so inspiring and the color may seem the same but I feel it is a little more watermelon pinkish which I like but I may be crazy so I’m not really sure.
Here it is and again the classic packaging I’m sure we are all used to seeing. It isn’t a big box this month and just the regular size. So here we go with unwrapping and since it is almost Christmas and one of my first things to open this month.
Everything is so pretty and did I mention full size? It is definitely worth it this month and way over what I paid for. I compliment BDJ Team for packaging all the products well so they wouldn’t get smashed or broken. All the delicate and fragile ones like the powder and glass foundation bottle had bubble wrap which kept it nice and safe and also a fun toy for me.
TruBlend Liquid Makeup
TruBlend Liquid Makeup in Buff Beige
Full Size // 30ml
Price // 645php
A liquid foundation that provides smooth full-coverage for a flawless natural-look. You won’t even know where your make-up ends and where your skin begins Available in 21 shades to perfectly match 99 percent of all skin tones.
The first item in this months box is a foundation. I never tried a Covergirl foundation and with my skin I can’t handle a lot of makeups so this is going to be intriguing to try. I got a shade I’m not so sure about so I’ll have to try it and take it to my makeup class with me to try and work it on my skin. It would have been nice if we could have gotten a voucher so we can get our exact shade but I was happy to get this and it is a surprise beauty box so of course can’t complain and the good thing is it is full size so you really get you money’s worth.
TruBlend Pressed Powder
TruBlend Pressed Powder in 2 Translucent Light
Full Size // 11ml
Price // 425php
Has silky-smooth formula that adapts perfectly to your skin tone. A perfect coverage to achieve a fresh, no make-up look. Especially designed to match with the TruBlend Liquid Makeup. A lightweight formula that controls shine and doesn’t clog pores.
This was actually the first makeup product I ever bought. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup but my mom said I could buy me a compact when I was probably around 13 years old. When I got this it reminded me of that moment and even though the packaging is a little bit different than it used to but it is still that classic silver packaging I thought was the coolest thing in my small makeup world before. The shade is translucent so I’m sure it will match and I hope it is the same as I used to remember it. I actually can’t wait to use it. The only downside is my compact was damage and I tried emailing the BDJ team but no reply yet. I will update if I hear anything.
Smoky Shadow Blast
Smoky Shadow Blast in Bronze Fire
Full Size // 4.6g
Price // 525php
Easily create a bold, colorful, smokey eye with its two different, specially contoured ends. The two expertly paired shades will surely give you spotlight-ready looks loved by today’s hottest makeup artists.
As for eye makeup that came in the box I got a shadow stick but I have seen some boxes had those classic quad eyeshadow palettes but I’m glad I got this one as I really do want to try this and a cream eyeshadow for once. It seems really unique and perfect for on the go and everyday looks. I’ll let you know about this once I try it and how I like it. I can also use it as a base and it looks easy to use and just draw it on the eyes which seems very me as I don’t do much for makeup every day.
Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara
Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Water Resistant Mascara in Very Black
Full Size // 12g
Price // 595php
It’s super-volumizing fiberstretch mascara formula and oversized brush make every little lash bigger, fuller, longer-looking and more dramatic/ It’s waterproof formula gives you volume and length -rain or shine!
The second thing for the eyes in this box is mascara. I think Covergirl has some good mascara and I actually never tried but I heard a lot of good things. When I read the description of the mascara while writing it though I was really intrigued and I really want to try a mascara that has fibers to make lashes fuller and longer. I do have very long lashes but I want to see the fuller effect and this says it can give that so I’ll see and do a review about it.
Cheekers Blush in Rose Silk
Full Size // 3g
Price // 395php
Get an easy and natural rosy silk flush with a portable mini-compact that gives you subtle highlights that goes on to stay-true, stay natural-looking for hours. A sassy way to give life to your cheeks exclusively available only at BDJ Box.
Last thing in this months box is a BDJ exclusive item which means it is not yet in stores and us who got the box got first dibs on this blush. It will be out in stores in Febuary 2015. I got a pretty color and I like it so I’m happy with the shade. This blush packaging reminds me of the blush my mom used to use on me when I was in ballet as a child. It is just so classic to see it I feel like and that’s what my mom said when she saw it. So again I’m liking this and can’t wait to try it and let my mom try to see if it reminds her of her using it as well.
That was everything in my December BDJ Box. I liked the Covergirl Exclusive as it brought back memories to me first trying makeup. The overall total is 2,585php which is 4 times what I paid for. It was worthwhile and I definitely got my moneys worth its out of it. I can’t wait what is next for next year and hope it is as great as what I’ve been experiencing.
