December 2014 | BDJ Box Unboxing & First Impressions
Hey loves! I know that this unboxing is way late. As always, I was supposed to film a vid for this one but BERs are extremely hectic, especially December. How’s your weekend so far? Mine’s been great. I had my impromptu advance/pre-birthday celebration with my college & HS friends and the next day, my best friend and I went to H&M. Also got my new favorite book, Michelle Phan’s ‘Make Up: Your Life Guide to Beauty, Style, and Success – Online and Off”.
Anyway, I got this box about 5 days ago and I was completely beyond words when I saw the sleeve. It’s a Covergirl Exclusive BDJ Box and despite my love for makeup, Covergirl’s something that I’m not as familiar of. I love their mascaras and eyeliners of course. But aside from those, I haven’t tried the rest of their products. This box is definitely a great intro to their entire line, not only to me but also to newbies.
TruBlend Liquid Makeup (Full Size: Php 645 | 30ml)
A liquid foundation that provides smooth full coverage for a flawless natural-look. You won’t even know where your make-up ends and where your skin begins. Available in 21 shades in perfectly match 99% of all skin tones.
When I saw this in my box, I initially thought “Yes! New foundation!” I’ve been wanting to get a Covergirl foundation for quite some time now. I’m just not sure if it’s this one or the Outlast version. I’ve heard lots of positive reviews about CG foundations, though I also heard that they sometimes tend to oxidize. Anyway, I’m glad that the shade is similar to my skin tone and I can’t wait to try it.
TruBlend Pressed Powder (Full Size: Php 425 | 11ml)
Has silky smooth formula that adapts perfectly to your skin tone. A perfect coverageto achieve a fresh, no make-up look. Especially designed to match with TruBlend Liquid Makeup. A lightweight formula that controls shine and doesn’t cling to pores.
I haven’t swatched/tried this one yet, because I have a lot of pressed powders in my stash that I need to try and empty. But the shade matches my foundation so I have no doubt that it’ll definitely match my skin tone.
Cheekers Blush in ‘Pretty Peach’ (Full Size: Php 395 | 3g)
Get an easy natural peachy flush with a portable mini-compact that fives you subtle highlights that goes on to stay-true, stay natural-looking for hours. A sassy way to give life to your cheeks exclusively available only at BDJ Box.
**Available in stores on February 2015**
The packaging reminds me of my mom’s blushers when I was a kid. TBQH, lol. Oh and the smell! It’s very nostalgic. It smells like vintage makeup but in a good way. It’s very subtle, and it takes me back to when I used to play with my mom’s makeup stash. It’s very subtle. The blush is actually silky and it has a nice color payoff. I haven’t tried it yet so that’s as far as I can tell you. But the smell is like..whoo! >.<
Liquiline Bast Eye Pencil (Full Size: Php 450 | 9.5g)
This liner’s high pigment formulas and built-in smudger gives you the intensity and staying power for eyes that will definitely get you noticed. Easily achieve that intense definition or subtle, smoky look.
I love Covergirl’s eyeliners. They’re creamy, very pigmented and they last for long periods of time. And this one is no exception. Though as I have mentioned, I still haven’t met a pencil liner that can withstand my waterline, still this one doesn’t give me racoon eyes at the end of the day. It does smudge on me but just a bit and it’s very manageable. It’s also very easy to smudge, so if you want to use this to perhaps contour your eyes, or create a soft, subtle smoky look, then this is definitely the product for you.
LashBlast Length Mascara (Full Size: Php 450 | 6.5ml)
This LashBlast Length Mascara is is definitely a wand to keep! It provides flake-free application that gives full lash coverage for bold, noticeable lashes. It’s waterproof formula will give you irresistible eyes, rain or shine.
I’ve tried a number of Covergirl mascaras, but I haven’t encountered this one yet, so as expected, when I saw this, I ripped it open. I’ve been using this for about three-four times now, and once without an eyelash curler, because the pads of my curlers were missing. Anyway, this indeed doesn’t flake and it’s very lengthening. It doesn’t provide as much volume but it’s okay, since it’s not really meant for that. What got me really impressed was when I used it without curling my lashes, my lashes were still pretty visible. It wasn’t as noticeable that I just popped on a mascara para masabi lang na meron. Oh, and it’s not also a pain to remove and it doesn’t smudge.
So those are all of the products that I got from this box. All in all, I am definitely overwhelmed with the number of full-sized items in this box, and THEY’RE ALL MAKEUP! Who doesn’t want that?! And it’s from Covergirl! From one of the most trusted brands when it comes to makeup. All that’s missing is a lipstick, but as for me, with how they curated my box, I wouldn’t exchange any other item for a lipstick. I have a lot of lipsticks already and all of these products are definitely a hit for me.

As you may already know, BDJ Box costs Php 580 so it’s pretty obvious that this box is really really worth it. The total amount of all of the products inside the box is more than 4x what you paid for. BDJ Boxes are kinda hard to acquire, so if you really want to subscribe, better do it now otherwise, you’ll end up getting next month’s box.
