February 2021 AmazeBox

First, a disclaimer! If you are a subscriber and you do not want a spoiler of what is in the February Amazebox, skip this post! I usually wait until the next month to post the contents so I don’t ruin it for people who like to be surprised. However, we’ve FINALLY gotten caught up on Amazebox subscribers, which means no more waitlist!! In light of this, I’ll be posting the current box’s contents so people can decide if they’d like to order that month’s box. If you have never heard of it and are wondering what an AmazeBox is, it is LimeLife’s subscription box. Its the ONLY monthly subscription box that contains professional beauty products. The AmazeBox will always include at least one full sized product. There is a $42 monthly fee and you can cancel anytime. There will ALWAYS be a higher value in the box than the monthly fee.

To learn more about the AmazeBox, check out this post. If you’d like to see what has come in previous boxes, you can type “AmazeBox” in the search bar and you will find all the other posts I’ve done.

Now that we got all that out of the way, lets see what came in this month’s box!

One thing I love so much about the AmazeBox is it is always themed, from the products inside to the box they come in! February is LimeLife’s birthday month so this month’s box was birthday themed!

The box always comes with a themed sticker, a product card with your products description, as well as a perforated quote card that you can pop out.

This month’s box came with THREE FULL SIZED products, and 2 samples.

Samples:

What Eyeshadow Colors to Wear for Your Eye Color

Ever wonder what eyeshadows would be best for your eye color or skin tone? I have the answer from the pros!

Celebrity makeup artists, Danessa Myricks and James Vincent, have teamed up to take the guesswork out of eyeshadow selections for you! We understand how intimidating picking out eyeshadow colors can be in the sea of shades that is available. James and Danessa are officially LimeLife Educators which means that they will help provide LimeLife Beauty Guides and customers with guidance and education about the beauty world. Working on movie sets, theatre, models, and celebrities like Lady Gaga, Reece Witherspoon, these are true pros!

They have curated a 4-well palette for each eye color: brown, hazel, blue, and green. As well as 6 well palettes based on skin tone: light/medium and medium/deep.

What’s even cooler is that Danessa and James have created YouTube videos for us so that we can refer back to, if we need help on shadow placement. Let’s check these palettes out!

Includes Shades: 04, 42, 49, 21

When ordering, don’t forget to throw in a mascara and eyeliner to complete the look!

Edit to Update!!!

LimeLife launched a product that was much needed and it sold out in just a couple of hours!! Because of this, we have created VERY similar palettes in the same color families. You can still achieve your desired looks with these palettes. Instead of selecting one of the preset palettes, you can just start building your own customized palette with the shades you would like! Introducing, Eyeshadow Palettes for Eye Colors 2.0

Again, you can chose whether you want a 4-well or 6-well palette, you just create you own with the shades that you’d like, and the makeup brush will still be included through August!

Important to remember that free shipping starts at $77 and there is a 30 day money back guarantee!

When you check out, be sure to start a customer account. There are rewards that you can earn with every order AND a referral program that I’ll be telling you all about VERY soon! 

If you have any question, please let me know. I’m happy to help!

It’s Finally Here!!

You’ve been asking for it and it took two years to make!! Introducing….

LimeLife’s New WATERPROOF MASCARA!


People are already buzzing about this mascara! You have been asking for it for as long as I can remember and it is finally here! The reason it took so long? Because they did not rest until they perfected the formula. When it comes to waterproof mascara there are a few things that set apart an amazing formula from an average formula. Does it not only stand up to tears, water, and sweat, but the oils that come from oily skin? Does it make lashes feel soft opposed to stiff? Is it not only gentle of eyelashes, but does it nourish lashes as well? Ours checks all the boxes! Making Waves Waterproof Mascara is officially here and I cannot wait for you to try it!

This waterproof mascara gives maximum volume and holds while nourishing lashes. The vegan, waterproof formula lasts all day without smudging or flaking. Shea Butter provides glossiness to the lashes making them look darker while Vitamin E moisturizes lashes making them feel soft.

The proof is in the pudding, let’s see what everyone is so dang excited about!

I mean, could these ladies be any more beautiful?!

We all know that waterproof mascara takes a little more work to get it off, hence thats it’s waterproof! 🤣 because of this, I strongly recommend getting our Make-off Remover spray. It’s seriously amazing! The spray is an oil free formula that will remove your makeup without feeling greasy. It’s safe on false lashes, and I love using it on a q-tip to fix any little mistakes I may have made. I just spray it all over my face and let it sit for about 10 seconds and then start wiping my face away.

It’s important to note that you should remove your makeup before washing your face to ensure your face is actually clean!

Sooo excited about this new mascara! It’s available everywhere on my website, including all of the customizable collections where mascara is included. To get the perfect eye look, grab the Take Two Collection! you can chose your own mascara and eyeliner, get an eyelash curler, and the Make-off Makeup Remover Spray! You’ll save money with the collection and it will ship for free!

How to Find Your Perfect Foundation Shade

Picking out a foundation shade can be the most nerve wracking part of getting new makeup. Even in the stores it’s hard to tell if the color you see in the bottle will match the color of your skin.

LimeLife by Alcone has the best foundation that I’ve ever tried, and I feel like I’ve tried them all! In fact, many celebrity makeup artists use the same foundation. I’ve written another blog post, foundation 101, where I’ve talked about this before but it’s been a year. We’ve added some new shades so I thought I would make an updated post!

LimeLife brought in professional makeup artist, Danessa Myricks, to help expand our makeup line to be more diverse. With this, came more foundation shades for darker skin tones, so we needed a new quiz. Professional makeup artist to the stars, Kat Aragon, created this incredibly accurate quiz. She’s a genius when it comes to color matching!

Here is the link to the color matching quiz!

When it comes to LimeLife, the names of the foundations can trip people up a little bit. If you have a pink undertone to your skin, you will be in the Olive shades. If you have yellow undertones then you will be in the Shinto line. Here are a few visuals that will help.

Now I’m not going to be able to go a whole makeup post without showing some before and afters 🤪 They’re just so dang good! LimeLife’s Perfect Foundation is 50% pigmented which is more than double most high-end makeup brands. It’s noncomedogenic, which means it won’t clog your pores. It’s truly perfect! Okay so let’s check out these incredible beauty guides that have shared their results with us!

Stunning right?!

Now that you’ve seen the amazingness, take the quiz here and if you still feel unsure, feel free to leave me a message on this post, contact me on Facebook, or Instagram. Include a picture of yourself in natural lighting like this and I can tell you which shade is best for you!

Tips

– When applying your foundation be light handed. The pigment in LimeLife’s foundation is much more than others. A little goes a long way! It’s buildable so feel free to put on a small amount and you can always add more for more coverage.

– I recommend setting foundation with a setting powder. It will help it last longer and give it a more matte finish. If you need a new powder, LimeLife has a great setting powder that is translucent and will work on all skin tones.

– LimeLife has a 30 day money back guarantee, with a super simple return/exchange policy

– Free shipping starting at $77

Ordering

Don’t forget your tools! If you need a new makeup brush, I love the diffuser brush #17. My personal favorite way to apply this foundation is with a damp blenderful.

LimeLife Botanical Wax Foundation

I can’t wait for you to try your new foundation! It’s been a total game changer for me!

Spring Beauty Must Haves!

Whew, Winter is over! We made it friends!! I love the fresh, bright colors that come with the spring season.

Lipgloss

My number one makeup product in spring is lipgloss! My favorite gloss is LimeLife by Alcone’s Perfect Lipgloss. The formula isn’t sticky at all and they come in beautiful tubes!

There’s are 17 shades to choose from! Here some of them on actual lips so you can see the true gloss of the gloss.

Lip Balms

I’m also loving these new lip balms! Super hydrating and comes in 4 different colors: Clear, Pink Grapefruit, Ruby Red, and Dragon Fruit. The colors give a tint to your lips and can be used on your cheeks for a little color there too!

Liquid Bronzer

Love these liquid body bronzers for a quick glow! They’re not like a traditional self tanner. These liquid bronzers give you the tan, won’t rub off, and then you can wash it off at the end of the night. Comes in 3 colors, Rose Gold, Gold, and Bronze.

Sunscreen

Hello sunshine! Love love love this sunscreen because it’s made with natural ingredients, plus is an amazing makeup primer, and moisturizer . Three-in-one y’all!

What are you Spring a Beauty must haves?

I’ll see y’all Friday for my weekly roundup and some awesome sales for the weekend!
