"Macaron Gloss Saga" Beautiful Box by Aufeminin (Alfemminile), April 2017. Beauty box review and sweet make-up look

Welcome to Candyland ou "Le pays des bonbons"! The Macaron Gloss Saga, this month’s BeautifulBox by Alfemminile/Aufeminin, isn't just a beauty box since I’ve found so many sweet things! Honestly, I appreciate the cosmetics...

This month’s BeautifulBox by Alfemminile/Aufeminin is all about sweet things as its name, Macaron Gloss Saga, and the bonbons pink designs suggest.Opening this box is much likely as walk into a Parisian pâtisserie with its vanilla fragrance and voluptuous atmosphere.

At 15,95€
, the Macaron Gloss Saga BeautifulBox offers:

a moisturising and protective Palmer’s lip balm with SPF 15, cocoa butter and vitamin E,a BEUP nail polish in "Raspberry Therapy",
an essence the gel nail polish in "04 Our Sweetest Day",
the brand new L’Oreal Rare Flower make-up remover cream for dry and sensitive skin,
and two macaroons, two make-up products by Beautiful (the box brand), a vanilla scented lip balm "Kiss Me Butter" and "My Cheek Crush" highlighting pearls.
The sweetness of the box were a solitary Lindor Lindt and two Haribo gelée bags (Takada and Tutti Candi).

From my quick journey to the little "Le Pays de Bonbons" pastry shop I found that:
Palmer's cocoa butter lip balm hydrates for hours and, thanks to all that cocoa, smell like a white chocolate block (Galak by Nestlé, for example); the Raspberry Therapy BEUP nail polish surprises me for its intense and shiny colour. It has been my first nail polish and product so far but it won my doubts! 
L'Oreal's makeup remover cream is a new launch and it really fulfils its purposes as it’s able to dissolve any type of make-up without irritating my skin.
essence has always surprised me for its economical but long-lasting gel nail polishes, but 04 Our Sweetest Day requires too many applications and dries incredibly slowly.
It reminds of sugar crystals, so I’m going to recycle it as a shimmery top coat.


Beautiful make-up items are both a top and a flop: the My Cheek Crush highlighting pearls have a strong and artificial scent but their finish is impalpable and can be safely used to create light points on the whole face, including eyes; Kiss Me Butter  lip balm(presented as a gloss) has a delicious scent but it’s extremely hard to apply and, even it melts with body heat, it’s way too dense.
I could save them because they are cruelty-free.

Since my subscription to the BeautifulBox by Alfemminile/Aufeminin last January, it’s the first time I haven't experienced problems with the service or product. This is the reason why, out of 4 BeautifulBoxes arrived so far, I’ve just reviewed two of them on time.
With the April BeautifulBox, the delivery service was impeccable and the featured products perfect, with some great discoveries. However, I have to point out that the Haribo candies were samples.

The price of the box has been largely exceeded by the quality of the pieces; my expectations satisfied.
Among the make-up and skin care products found inside the Macaron Gloss Saga BeautifulBox by Alfemminile/Aufeminin, I use L'Oreal make-up remover cream and Palmer’s lip balm every day, but I dislike if not hate essence nail polish.
What about the bonbons? I made someone happy...
What about the box? You can grab and taste your sweet BeautifulBox by Alfemminile/Aufeminin online.

Valentina Chirico's sweet make-up with Macaron Gloss Saga picks and outfit detail with handmade hairclip by Republic of Pigtails, Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in Pink of Me

All these sweet goodies made me want to wear everything pastel and soft: a multicolour H&M sweater with metallic threads, a Republic of Pigtails Mint Mia hairclip-bow, a cotton candy pink eyeliner smudged starting from my inner corners, the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon in 59 Pink of Me. A double accent nail manicure with my new entries from the Macaron Gloss Saga box and the Beautiful make-ups complete the look (Palmer’s cocoa lip balm helped a lot).
