It’s hard to cut through the clutter in the drugstore beauty aisle—but that’s why we have the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards. Every year, over 6,000 industry pros come together and vote on the year’s best and brightest products. This exclusive Birchbox collection features drugstore-available honorees from the 2015 awards—you’ll get a luxurious overnight mask, a lip pencil that packs a wallop of creamy color, and more.
I am a huge fan of the limited edition CEW Mass Appeal box, its a box filled with products that fit into my budget. Plus I love that you can buy everything at your local drug store or mass market retailer, no need to stand in line at a fancy beauty counter. This years Mass Appeal box is a great mix of makeup and skin care products. A girl needs to have a healthy foundation to apply the makeup to, skin care is number one in my book. The box was filled with brands that I all ready knew and trusted, plus there were a few brands I have never tried before.
“Lady! What did you get in your 2015 CEW Mass Appeal Box?!”
CEW Mass Appeal Box 2015:
Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands (Full size): This shea butter lip crayon offers creamy, matte color combined with nourishing moisture.
—————————->Sedona Sands is a really great neutral color that will compliment most skin tones. I love Burt’s Bees, however this product falls a little short, the color did not hold up to my daily coffee, thou it did leave my lips feeling nourished. I will probably buy the lip crayon in a different color, I like a little bit of color on my lips and not one that blends right in.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths: These mild, fragrance-free wipes remove dirt and makeup while maintaining skin’s healthy moisture balance.
—————————> Finally! a Wipe that doesn’t smell, I love me some cleansing cloths, however I do not like the scent they leave behind. This wipe leaves no scent or residue behind and that is an A+ in my beauty book.
Laneige Water Sleep Mask: This Korean cult fave works to hydrate and replenish skin overnight-so you can wake up to a soft, glowing complexion.
————————-> I gave this a whirl, however I am not sure it did anything while I slept. I woke up to the same old skin, there was no glowing in my bathroom mirror. The Koreans can keep it.
Olay Regenrist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting Hydraswirl Eye Cream (Full size): This two part formula instantly brightens dark circles and hydrates skin for a firmer, smoother appearance.
—————————> I got this in a Target box earlier in the summer and it is amazing. I noticed a huge difference in my raccoon eyes. My dark circles have faded and my skin seems firmer.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin’ Curves Mascara (Full size): This brilliant mascara wand is twisted to help pump up volume and reach even your tiniest lashes sans clumping.
————————-> The brush has a really weird shape and I found it a little difficult to use. Otherwise it did what it claimed sans clumps.
Simple Skincare Utra-Light Gel Moisturizer (Full size): This unique, ultra-light and fast absorbing gel leaves your skin with an immediate soft touch – the perfect base for your make-up!
———————–> I am totally into gel moisturizers right now and this one totally delivers.
