Open Box Video Featuring MAC, NYX, Smashbox, and more

By  |  23 Comments


I was out of town over the past weekend for Easter, hence the lack of blog posts :) It’s been a busy month! I came back to my xSparkage mailbox being full of goodies (this always happens, the days before i go out of town I get nothing, but the second I leave they all show up!) and thought it would be fun to film an Open Box video with them. I like open box videos because it’s a surprise to everyone, so its like Christmas :)


Boxes shown:
Lit Cosmetics (Glitter)
Beauty Joint (NYX)
MAC Cosmetics
Candles By VIctoria


I’ll get a First Impressions video, along with some swatch posts of the new MAC products up ASAP for you guys!

    This was a great video, I’d love to see more like it!

    PS- I crack up at everyone when I read your comments on YouTube. Who CARES that you get free products? I think it’s awesome and love to see what you have to say about them, regardless of how you get them.

    Best video EVAR! I love how many goodies you get. And you do a lot of work for it too with your blog, so in my opinion, it’s a win-win for you and the companies. :)

    I loved this video as well. I have been doing a lot of window shopping for makeup latley and I am curious if you have ever tried TooFaced Lockdown. It is a cream eyeshadow that is also a primer base. They have a really gorgeous blue called aqua. I was curious if you have any of these products and if you do could you do a tutorial using them and a review on them as well. Thanks :)

    The amount of makeup you got in these boxes is like twice more than everything I own.
