Yes, Oh Yas! September 2018 Review

img_0865.jpg

Yes, Oh Yas! is a monthly beauty subscription box that costs $14.99 plus $3.99 shipping (total of $18.98) if you live in the USA or $14.99 plus $9.50 shipping (total of $24.49) if you live in Canada. Going off of their Instagram account it appears that they sent out their first subscription box back in September of last year so they are still a pretty new subscription service. They have featured a lot of Bella Pierre and Profusion products as well as Manna Kadar and Beauty Creations in past boxes. Some of the items in their past boxes are also discontinued products which has gotten some judgement from a few subscribers. I understand why they put those types of products in their monthly box since the subscription service is still new and it will take some time before they are as established as Boxycharm and other well-known subscription services. They definitely stepped up their game for September which is why I had to post this even though it is now October. The total value is always more than the cost of the subscription which is how I’m used to subscriptions boxes being. They fixed most of the discrepancies in the values listed on the insert card which make me happy. The only one that was different from the product maker’s site was the highlighter palette that Yes, Oh Yas! said was valued at $32 instead of $39.99.

Here is the insert that was included that tells you the theme of the month and product values.

Now on to the products!

Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlighter Palette

First up is the Naked Cosmetics holographic highlighter palette. This palette was inspired by the Brand’s ivory loose pigment collection and basically looks like pressed versions of them. They all have a white base with iridecent pigments added. The pigmentation doesn’t show up strong right away which is nice since that gives you some flexability when using them on the face, eyes and body. I built up the shades for the swatches so you can see just how pigmented they can be. The top photo doesn’t do the colors justice so refer to the bottom picture.

Up next up is the Aesthetica Pro Brush Series 3 piece eye and brow brush set which includes an angled eyeliner and brow brush, brow spoolie and fine tipped eyeliner brush. All three brushes are synthetic and can be used wet or dry and are suitable for use with cream, gel, liquid and powder makeup. The angled eyeliner brush can be used to create a thicker wing or fuller brow. The spoolie is full length and can be used to blend brow products after its been applied and for separating eyelashes after putting on mascara. The fine tipped eyeliner brush is a multi-tasker since it can be used for winged liner, tight-lining and applying product to the waterline.
