I really enjoy wearing makeup on occasion. But I don’t own a lot of it. As I’ve mentioned, I find shopping for makeup overwhelming. This year, I’ve also made a commitment to buy only cruelty-free beauty products. This makes shopping for makeup even more of a process. Therefore, I have no plans to stop receiving my Vegan Cuts Makeup Box anytime soon. For those who don’t know, The Vegan Cuts Makeup Box is a quarterly subscription box featuring only full-size products. It is customized to your personal preferences via survey and shipped straight to your door for $39.95 per month (plus free shipping withing the United States.) The winter box is the second Vegan Cuts Makeup Box I’ve gotten and yet again, it is very much worth the price.

The winter Vegan Cuts Makeup Box included a lot of products I wouldn’t have normally picked out, and I’m excited for that! I’d definitely like to expand my makeup skill, which is a pretty low bar to begin with. Having access to new items is a great help for that! So here’s what was in the winter Vegan Cuts Makeup Box.
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Cream Shadow Stick – $22
I love this product! It is easily the item most within my comfort zone – a neutral toned eyeshadow. It’s great for a simple, natural look – aka my go-to look. Goes on smooth, and lasts.
OFRA Cosmetics Rainbow Lips Ritz Gloss – $24
Sadly, this is the product I am least excited for. I’m not a huge gloss girl. I rarely wear lip color, and when I do, it’s matte. I’m also not a pink fan. But after trying them all, the deep red is quite nice, as is the next darkest color. Though I haven’t tried any with my new hair, so who knows what will look good now! I think the most dissapointing thing about this lip palette is that the largest section at the center is basically clear gloss, which I can’t see myself ever using.
Thrive Cosmetics Triple Threat Color Stick – $36
I was so happy to get a cream blush in this box! After applying the first time, I learned that a little goes a long way. Rubbing just a bit on your cheeks and then blending it in works to give a great soft look. (My swatch photo has somehow disappeared; sorry about that!) Also, did I mention how much I adore that this has the stiff blending brush attached to it? Because I really, really do adore that feature.
PHB Ethical Organic Eyeliner – $9.95
Sigh. Eyeliner. Eyeliner is something I so desperately want to wear, but my skill level is so poor I never do. But this color is so great that I am definitely going to practice more! I love that this is not a solid black eyeliner. It’s a nice dark charcoal grey, and I really like that color with my skin tone.
Another great Vegan Cuts Makeup Box! As you can clearly see, the value of this sub box is pretty incredible. The winter box has a total retail value of $91.95 and as I mentioned above, it cost only $39.95. Love it.
