January Beauty Army(swatches+review)

  I think the Newgistics delivery people lost their GPS, or their trucks broke down...or they simply decided to take their time to deliver my Beauty Army box to me...I got it yesterday(Saturday)! Isn't that sad? Oh well, I was super excited it when I finally got it(as usual)!

  I was a total noob and completely forgot to pick my mascara, but I emailed customer service and they replied ASAP and told me they would add it in my box for next month. I'm always super happy with their customer service, usually I'm not a fan of emailing customer service as much as calling, because I feel like no one will read my email, but they do reply their emails and their customer service is amazing! Which is always a plus!

Love the cute card with balloons this month!

Bunch of goodies! Yay!

Dermisa - Skin Fade Cream(0.90oz/25g): $3.99, full size is $7.99 for 50g. I haven't tried this out yet, but I kinda want to see what it does to some of my post break out spots. I dont't know if this works, but I love the fact that it's quite affordable if it does indeed work.

Lash Card(2 cards): $1.40, full size has 10 cards and goes for $6.99. I tried this out the other day and it was really hard to place it. I think using this is a bit pointless, it's easier to just be careful when applying mascara. I wouldn't buy this product.

Not Your Mother's - She's a Tease Volumizing Hairspray(2oz/56g): $1.5,
full size is $5.99 for 226g. I haven't tried this out and don't know if I will keep it, since I got a volumizing spray from my Ipsy bag this month, although, maybe I will try it because I didn't like the one from Ipsy all that much.

Nelson J Beverly Hills - Argan Oil 7 in 1 Non- Foaming Shampoo(1oz/30ml):$2.25, full size is $20
for 8oz(Beauty Army has a promo for 2 bottles at $36 a pair). I haven't heard the greatest reviews about this, but I might give it a try.

Whip Hand Cosmetics - Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in Special Forces(.75/.2 oz): $2.80, full size is $14 for 0.1 oz. I like these pigments, they are really pigmented and the shades are pretty. Sad thing is, they changed the packaging this month and this one spilled over my stuff. On the bright side it wasn't too much, but it's still not the greatest thing. I still like these pigments and so far I have all the ones they have released.

Natural light, no primer.

Mark. - Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Honey: $6.50 full size. The color for this gloss is pretty cute and consistency of the gloss is thick. I don't know if I want to keep it, I just feel like I have too much lip gloss...oh the hoarding!

 Natural light no primer of course.

Value and review:

 $18.44...Wow! That's not good at all! Only $6 more than what the subscription costs. Oh well! That's the thing about Beauty Army, I can't blame them for the items I got, because I pick what I get. I still like BA, but I haven't found a lot of items I like in my selection windows lately, in spite of changing around my profile. Also, I HATE Newgistics with the passion of a thousand burning suns! They are horrible, they take forever to deliver packages! Ugh! My package went to NJ, then to my local Post Office in NY, then to MA and finally back to my NY

 Either way, I wish Beauty Army changed their shipping company. And at the end of the day, if I don't like my selection window, I can always skip, right?
