It’s been a while since I posted about the BDJ Box. I stopped subscribing months ago because some of the boxes that I received before were kind of meh. I think two months ago, they announced that they will be having elite boxes from August to December. I honestly got excited because the elite boxes that I received before are well worth it so I gave it another shot.
Today, let me show you everything that are inside my BDJ Box Elite for August 2015. The theme is “The Look of Love” which aims to bring out that distinctive look when you’re in love. Hmmm, not sure if that makes sense to me, but you’ll be the judge! All products are full size and all from the brand, Revlon.
I was kind of surprised that the box is light. I panicked a little because I thought that I’ll be getting samples or just a few items. To my delight, there are 8 full-sized items inside! Revlon is not cheap here in the Philippines so I am glad that I got way more than what I paid for! Each elite box costs P1,480.
Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Color in Medium Brown, 100 ml, P395.00
“Celebrate a new hue with Revlon ColorSilk Beautiful Color. Revlon 3D Color Technology delivers natural looking, multi-tonal color from root to tip, not only boosting your hair color but also adding definition and dimensionality. Enriched with UV Defense to help keep color vibrant, dimensional and true.”
I am not sure if I want this shade for me, but I’ll keep it for future use. I like the idea of 3D Color Technology. I am thinking it might look like Balayage? It also has UV defense that we need every day! I might give this to my mom if she wants it.
Revlon Brow Fantasy in Dark Brown, 1.18 ml, P575.00
“Revlon Brow Fantasy defines, colors, and sets your eyebrows in 2 easy steps. Use the defining pencil to fill in your brows, then follow by brushing on the sheer tint gel to shape and set your brows. Your best brows now made beautifully simple. Time to make fab brows reality with Revlon Brow Fantasy!”
Filling and shaping my eyebrows are essential parts of my makeup routine because they really add oomph to my look. I always see this product, but I never buy it. I am glad that BDJ Box included this so now there’s no holding back! Reviewing it soon here!
Revlon Lash Curler (with Replacement Pad), P300.00
“The right curl with the right curler. Revlon Extra Curl Lash Curler creates the ultimate curl, quickly and easily. Its small size and shape are designed to evenly curl each and every lash. The gently rounded pad won’t crimp, pinch or stick to your lashes. This comes with an extra pad, perfect for long time use.”
I always use an eyelash curler before I apply mascara. It really makes a difference especially if I want my eyes to look more awake. If you don’t want to buy a lash curler, you can always do the spoon trick! Hehe.
Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art in Burnished Bling, 3 ml, P625.00
“Dabble in makeup artistry with the NEW Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash dual-ended liquid shadows that sparkle and shine for an eye look that’s all your own. You control the look you want, and how you want to wear it. Go bold, go glam, go bling – it’s all in your hands!”
This is the one that I am most excited about. It reminds me so much of their nail art packaging! I love that I can use this product alone to create a complete eye look. I also love the shade because it is a natural shade. I can’t wait to share a look using this. I hope that it sets and lasts for a whole day!
Revlon Powder Blush in Mauvelous, 5 g, P575.00
“Go from pale to pretty in no time with Revlon Powder Blush! Enhance your complexion instantly and choose from 9 shades for your different beauty needs. This ultra-soft, silky powder blush adds a natural flush of color to your cheeks and looks freshly applied all day, perfect for a long-hour celebration.”
I love blushes as much as lipsticks, so this one’s nice to have. I never tried this yet, but the shade looks pretty matched to my medium skin tone. I always look for blushes that last for a whole day because I dislike reapplying so I am hoping this will pass the test.
Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Carnelian, 5.9 ml, P525.00
“Let lips shine with the next generation of lip lacquer – NEW Revlon Ultra HD Lip Lacquer. This revolutionary lacquer provides lips with true color clarity, high gloss shine, and lightweight feel. Featuring Revlon’s gel base formula, this wraps lips in true color pigmentation with a high shine finish and a bouncy, lightweight feel.”
True color clarity, high gloss shine, and lightweight feel- all achieved when I applied it on my lips. It’s so good! The gel formula reminds me of the Maybelline Lip Polish, but this lip lacquer is full of pigments! I always prefer matte finishes but on days that my lips needs some love, I use liquid lipsticks or lip gloss. This is a great product to try for girls who love lip products that won’t dry the lips out.
Revlon by Marchesa Super Lustrous Lipstick in Love that Red, 4.2 g, P350.00
“Revlon teams up with fashion house Marchesa for a limited collection, Revlon by Marchesa. Formulated for superior comfort and color, Super Lustrous Lipsticks give your lips bright, radiant color with a moisturizing shine. Effortlessly achieve that high fashion look with Revlon by Marchesa.”
Another red lipstick? Yes. I don’t mind getting more, but I probably have a similar shade on my stash. I love the gold packaging! This one is a red-orange shade from what I see and it will probably suit a lot of skin tones!
Revlon by Marchesa Core Nail Enamel in Valentine, 14.7 ml, P225.00
“Revlon by Marchesa Core Nail Enamel comes in rich and vivid colors to dress up your nails. Giving your digits that extra fancy look is a cinch with this nail polish. So why live in black and white when you can add more fashion to your nails? Swipe on two coats to get maximum color impact and shine.”
I did not do a fancy application but, I love this shade! It makes my hands brighter and one coat is opaque and not streaky at all. It has a thin consistency and quite runny. However, I would not wear this on its own because it won’t last a day. I washed some clothes wearing this and the tips chipped already. Still a very nice pigmented shade and quite affordable too for P225.00.
Overall, I got my money’s worth from this elite box! I only need to add a few more items to have a complete makeup look. Luckily, red is my favorite shade so I liked most of the items here. It’s nice to have some of the items that I’ve never tried yet, but hopefully the next box will be a different brand that I haven’t really tried at all. The total value of this box is P3,570.00!
If you want a review on any products featured here, let me know so that I can add it on my priority list.
