StyleTone unboxing: August 2016

Hi!

I received my first StyleTone box and I am super excited to tell you about the products I received this month! You are probably wondering: what the heck is Styletone? Well, StyleTone is a Dutch company who gathers new or on trend beauty products (mostly make-up) that are 100% cruelty free. Every month you will receive 5 full size products and a pamphlet with some tips and tricks for the products for only €12,50 or less per month, since the prices vary per subscription.
Ever since I discovered the youtuber Kathleenlights and her monthly unboxing videos on the companies Boxycharm and Ipsy who have the same kind of concept, I also wanted to receive a beauty box. Sadly, those companies do not ship to the Netherlands, but that doesn’t matter because I found Styletone!

So, the August box consisted of:

  1.  Cosmetic Glove by Ecoco, €7,95
  2.  Brow Setter by Paese, €11, 95
  3.  Rosy Cheeks by Seraphine, €20
  4. Tinted Lip Butter by Ellovi, €5
  5. Bronzer and Highlighter duo by Manna Kadar, €18,95

My thoughts on the products

The Cosmetic Glove is supposed to get rid of your make-up, all that it takes is the glove and some water. The glove can be cleaned by putting it in the washing machine, seems pretty ideal to me. I am really excited about this product, because I often forget to remove my make-up or I am too lazy to do it. However, I do want to make removing my make-up a daily chore in order to get a better skin. So hopefully this product will help me do that!

The Brow Setter by Pease is my new baby. I have been getting into doing my brows since I had let a specialist do my brows the “Anastasia way” a month ago. I used to be scared to do my brows, because I was afraid that they would end up looking fake however that day changed me.
​I received this product in the color Dark Brown, which suits my hair color (yes! yes! yes!​). I do have to get used to the waxy texture that the product has, but it looks very natural and beautiful!

​The next product, the Rosy Cheeks, kind of scares me. It is a lip and cheek gel, but Styletone recommends to use it as a lipstain.  So, after I opened the tube I noticed that the color of the product was a very bright purple/pink. I decided to swatch a little bit on my hand, the gel applied patchy and it didn’t want to form an even layer. When I tried to remove it, I get why they say you should use it as a stain… Cause wow it stained and it still looked very bright, sadly the photo doesn’t do the color justice. I don’t think that I will ever use this on my cheeks, but I am actually very curious about how it will look on my lips  when wearing a winged eyeliner!


Another lip product that I received was the Tinted Lip Butter by Ellovi, very useful since I often have dry lips. However, the tint doesn’t show and it has a strange scent and taste. It does feel very moisturizing, but I can’t get over the smell and taste just yet. I hope I do, because my lips are much healthier compared to a few days ago. The balm is not a miss or a hit for me at the moment…

​And last, but certainly not least (I know, very original line) the Bronzer and Highlighter Duo! This is one of my favourite products in the box. The colors are both paler when swatched, which is a relief since I am a bit pale.  This highlighter is giving me life, it is that beautiful.  But I have the feeling that the bronzer will be too dark for my skintone. However, I can always use it as an eyeshadow. The only downside of this product is that the pan is very small. I wish there was more!

I hope you liked this unboxing blogpost with mini reviews. Please, let me know if you are interested in seeing the September StyleTone box!

Love Life,

​Maxime
