Whats in My Ebony Box July 2017 | Missybeelondon

 

 

My Ebony box is a monthly beauty box subscription, delivered to your door.  I enjoy getting this box every month, because I know I will use most of the products in this box, especially as they are catered for women of colour.

So what is included in this months box?

Well…………………….

African print luggage tag made by Feed my Creative  a very useful item to put on your luggage when travelling.

WOKE sleep mask by founder design My Ebony box much needed when trying to sleep in the daytime, or when the sun rises early in the mornings

Eight – leave in conditioner by Jim + Henry   A very nice smelling conditioner made with Shea and rosemary essence. Will be trying this out soon.

Blueberry scrub by Soap Connoisseur smells very nice,  can’t wait to use this scrub.  Also made with natural ingredients

Goddess necklace, handmade in the USA. My Ebony Box  Very pretty. So glad it fit my big neck. A pretty symbol design.

Glorious fist badge designed by founders design by My Ebony Box.  Love me a badge I do

Fruit infused water 250ml by Phrooti  all I can say while filming unboxing video on YouTube, I was very thirsty.  Been having many hot days here in the UK.  so I had to drink it after filming and taking pictures. Must say it is very refreshing, low in calories. Getting a natural fruity boost.

Last of all is

Anti-bacterial hand wipes by Purell  everybody need anti-bacterial  wipes especially when outside,  my main example will be using public transport and touching handles and poles after other people have touched it.  Very risky during flu season, great addition to the box

My favorite item in the box is…………………………… Can you guess?  Well it is the WOKE sleep mask.

WOKE

This is what was in June box.

Multiuse blue scarf/headwrap/sarong. www.myebonybox.com  this is a very practical item to have with so much uses. Plus I also love the colour as well. Will be using it soon, and posting the pictures up on my instagram.

She who believed silver bracelet  www.myebonybox.com I was about scared that it might not fit my big old wrists, but was so happy when I tried it on in the unboxing, that it fitted perfectly. And not tight on my wrist. Due to it being adjustable.

Mo’mineral makeup first impressions review

So I was sent some makeup to review in the post, from Mo’mineral makeup

www.momineralmakeup.co.uk

Which was received last week.

This is my first try on review of the samples, I was given 3 different mineral powder foundation shades, and juicy shade lipstick

IMM MMA – which I think was the darkest shade of brown, which I put on my right cheek

Second shade EWA – which I felt was more of a richer warmer brown shade, I applied on my left cheek

And the last powder foundation shade was MHLE, which I think is a paler brown shade, which I applied to my forehead.

Juicy lipstick shade, which looking at it, thought it was about bright, as I am used to wearing darker shades.

Check out the youtube video where you can watch me apply the makeup

So lets get to the review of the products

First let me start by saying that I have oily/combination skin.

I primed my face before I put all the powder foundations on.

Easy application with the makeup brush, I didn’t use to much on each part of my face. Because sometimes if u apply too much powder the face looks ashy and not good.

All mineral foundation shade we’re similar in colour, my favorite is EWA the brown had a warm undertone.

I think I am very fortunate not to have my scaring or spots on my face.
So when the power mineral foundations was applied, it made my skin look evened out, and flawless

So coverage was pretty good, like I said previously I was unsure about the juicy lipstick colour, but it looked good on my lips, kinda nude looking.

I did not apply finishing powder or setting spray, to see hope the mineral makeup withheld on its own.

After more than 2 hours, my face was slightly shiny, but remember I have oily combination skin, plus I was not heavy with the products ,

Overall I think mo’mineral makeup is a very good makeup for women of colour, and suitable for a different skin types (dry, combination, oily)

Bear in mind no foundation was applied to my nose or above my lips or under my lips, you can see the subtle difference.

I give mo’mineral makeup 10/10, the mineral foundation will come in useful during the warm summer
