Haul // My First BeautyKind Order! Laura Geller, Borghese, Butter London, Cailyn, plus Samples!

I found this gem of a website a few days ago plus a coupon code, and when I read about the site, I felt compelled to find something I’d like on the site! When you sign up for BeautyKind, you choose a charity and a portion- 5%- of your purchase goes to that charity. Naturally, I chose the National Alliance for Research on Schizophrenia and Depression, but there are many others to choose. If you sign up with my link here, you can get $25 off of your first order, too.

So, I picked out a few things and checked out. I placed my order on April 25th, and it was to my door by April 28th! I’m very impressed with the shipping!! It was free and fast!

The box it came in was pretty basic, but every item was wrapped in tissue paper. I also noticed a cute mesh bag that had three sample-sized items- they included samplers!! Super cute

When everything is out of the box, you see a really cute message about the company and their mission. It’s all about beauty, love, and kindness- all good things, in my book. I made it huge so you can see it.

And, onto the items! They have a lot of cosmetics, hair care, body care, fragrances, men’s stuff, tools, etc, but I stuck with cosmetics and mostly lip-related items. Why? Because it’s the most fun for me!

Here are the four items I purchased, all out of their boxes (sorry that some of them are flipped the wrong way- WordPress doesn’t give me good editing options and I took them with my phone)

  • Butter London Liquid Lippy in Ruby Murray
  • Cailyn Eye Polish in Lilac
  • Borghese “B Colorful” Set
    • Two lip glosses: Petalo and Mandarino
    • Three lip crayons: Petal pink, Cherry Red, and Brazillian Bare.
  • Laura Geller “Love Me Dew” Trio: Mango, Fig, and Honey Fizz.

And the free samples I got:

Two of them are “deluxe sample” sized, plus one “foil packet” that actually holds 5ml of product, which is pretty good.

  • Juara Candlenut Body Creme, which does NOT have shea in it! I’m super excited to try this. 7.5oz tub goes for $31.36 with Amazon Prime, so I’m scared I’ll like this too much 🙂
  • Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Lip Gloss in Pink Sequin, which uses a brush applicator and not a doe-foot one, which was different. A full-size tube is worth $21, but I can’t tell just how big full-size is.
  • Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind Highlighter in Crystal Pink, which is super cute, actually, even though it definitely looks too dark to be a true highlighter on me- but oh well! Full-size is $26.

Here’s them all laid out- not bad for $42.50, right?
