How excited are you that Spring has sprung! Well, it hasn’t quite “sprung” yet in Boston because I can still see snow on the ground…in April…ugh. But, it’s so close I can smell it and I’m loving all the new stuff Spring brings along with it.
No seriously, I legit just spent a day visiting with a bunch of “new stuff” in the form of 32 baby lambs (evidence available on my Insta). I could cry just thinking about it (and also was possibly the only grown up crying because they were so adorable, but you didn’t hear that from me).
Anyway, Spring has a way of getting me super amped for warm weather, pretty smelling things and all sorts of beauty-ful. And, speaking of beauty-ful, I’ve got some serious that on the blog today thanks to Beautycon and their Spring beauty box! Woot!

INSIDE THE BEAUTY BOX
Of course the box itself was adorable. Beautycon typically sends a white “graph paper” style box with an outer wrap that changes per season. Getting purty things in the mail is pretty much the best thing ever. Spring may have had it’s way with this box during shipping, but I still love her so!
Typically the goodies in this beauty box are curated by beauty influencers (maybe even some of your faves!). BUT, for Spring, we were lucky to receive a box filled with lovelies curated by the Beautycon team and their “girl squad”, LA Demi (@itslademi), Dacey Cash (@dacey_cash) & Sayria Jade (@sayriajade). And, it’s FILLED, people.
Is it weird that my heart got a little fluttery as I was opening up the box? Because, it did.
Okay, let’s talk beauty: One of my fave items in the box was this Dirty Little Secret – Matte Liquid Lipstick (Rust) – Yes, I have a dirty little secret. And, yes I’m going to apply this to my lips and probably tell you all of the fine details because no matter how hard I try, I always tattle on myself. Retail: $14. Follow: @dirtylittlesecretcosmetics
Also at the top of my list, was this OGX – Orchid Protect Hair Oil. Firstly, it smells AMAZING and also did I mention it smells amazing? It helps to slow premature fading with UVA/UVB sun-filters and lock in color. Moisturize and replenish strands for multi-faceted tones and salon perfect color that lasts. My hair loves this already. That is all. Retail: $5.79 / Follow: @ogx_beauty
Can we take five seconds to discuss my eyebrows? I do have a product I use on the regular for my brows – primarily because it makes me feel like I’m doing something fabulous with them even on days when they look like two tumbleweeds over my eyes. BUT, I’m stoked to give this The BrowGal – Convertible Brow Palette a try! The box also included this The BrowGal – Brow Brush and we all know how much I love brushing my eyebrows. Retail: $35 / Follow: @thebrowgal
I’m digging the peachy shades I’m getting in my beauty boxes this season, including this IBY Beauty – Mineral Pressed Blush (Peach Sheen). Ready, set, glow. Infused with ultra-fine minerals, this soft, sheer powder blush instantly gives skin a healthy, radiant finish. I want to glow! I want to glow! Retail: $16 / Follow: @ibybeaut
I’m not going to lie, this next one might have been my most fave in the box: Luxie Beauty – Rose Gold Duo Fibre Powder Blush Brush. In my last Beautycon Beauty Box I received the Luxie Beauty Tapered Highlighter Brush and I’m so excited she has a new bestie to mingle with on my vanity. I might dub these brushes the softest in the land. Retail: $22 / Follow: @luxiebeauty
Well, a girl’s gotta have something to clean her face after a long day of being gorgeous. These Garnier – Micellar Water Cleansing Towelettes are perfect for just that. Like a magnet, the micelles in these makeup removing wipes capture and lift away dirt, oil and makeup without harsh rubbing, leaving skin feeling clean and soft. Retail: $5.99 / Follow: @garnierusa
Have you ever seen anything more adorable than this this Cargo Cosmetics – Around the World Palette? I love that all of the shades are named after major cities around the world, like London, Amsterdam and New York. It’s like going on vacation without ever having to pack. Retail: $34 / Follow: @cargocosmetics
This NUXE – Shimmering Dry Face/Body Oil had me totally perplexed. At first look I thought it was nail polish! Then I opened it up to test it on my nail and there was no brush. After realizing what it was I covered my entire body and now I am the sparkliest lady in the land. LOVE IT. Retail: $37.80 / Follow: @nuxe_us
Last, but certainly not least was this NYX – Bright Idea Illuminating Stick (Rose Petal Pop) Each creamy-soft shade goes on smoothly and sets right away for an instant, lit-from-within glow. Guys, this box has me glowing, big time. Retail: $7.99 / Follow: @nyxcosmetics
THE COST (+ $5 off)?
This beauty-ful beauty box will run you $29 / season (+ shipping and handling), billed quarterly. This is an INSANE value, considering each box includes over $150 worth of product. The contents of the Spring box added up to a retail value of $178 based upon my calculations! Get the box

AM I IN LOVE?
Um, yes! This is my second Beautycon box and I’m starting to grow an obsession. Not like the kind that requires a restraining order or anything, but I’m definitely doing a lil’ stalking and dying to know what the Summer box will include!
Let me know if you grab Beautycon for yourself or gift it to your bestie! If you loved what you saw in this box (and the Winter Box), you will not be disappointed. Well, obviously I can’t confirm that but I’m basically psychic and can foresee that you’ll be elated.
