July/August, 2015 Kawaii Box Review

Subscription Queen

This is probably going to end up being a long and epic (at least in my own mind) post.  Hopefully you’ll stay with me until the end AND get as excited about kawaii and Kawaii Box as I am.  If you DO get super excited about any of the products listed in this post, you can check them out at Blippo and buy what you like.  If you use the code KAWAIILOVE, you’ll receive a 10% discount from all products at the shop.  The coupon also says you’ll receive free shipping worldwide, but I haven’t tested it out yet.  Anyway, moving on to the awesomeness.

I’m going to post pictures and descriptions first and then, at the end, I’ll go over what I think about everything.  I know my opinion is so HIGHLY coveted that you’ll all be anticipating it breathlessly.  🙂

(I’m listing the actual items in alphabetical order.)

The box when it arrived and after I fought with the tape on it.

A little bracelet...that doesn't fit. :(  But it will make a cool gift for someone else.

A do-it-yourself pack of chain candy.  Apparently you can chain the strips together and then mow down on them.  Hopefully they're yummy!!

What's better than an alpaca??  THREE of them in different colors on a keychain!!  SCORE!

5 pencils with cute little icons all over them.  Each pencil is different.  Fruit, flowers, sea life, owls, and spacemen.

(Sorry that this description is so weird looking – it’s because the picture is so narrow.)

This is so like Mario Brothers!

Mushroom Mini Plush:  This is so like Mario Brothers!

The next picture is even better of this AWESOME little set.

Rilakkuma Notes:  The next picture is even better of this AWESOME little set.

There's assorted sizes of sticky notes in here and every single one is ADORABLE.  (How could Rilakkuma be otherwise, though?)  You can use them in journals, day timers, on notes for school, as reminders, etc.  The sky is the limit!

On the outside it looks just like a strawberry doughnut with yummy sprinkles all over it.

This is a sticker sack full of little sticker flakes...definitely a win in my book.

A little wooden coaster that looks like a piece of toast with a face.  Definitely kawaii!

That’s everything!!  I think my two most favorite items are the Rilakkuma Notes set and the Alpaca Keychain.  I absolutely adore both Rilakkuma and alpacas so these are very dear to my heart.  *sighs contentedly*

My least favorite items are the bracelet and the toast coaster.  The bracelet kind of sucks because it’s so tiny.  I’m sending it to my best friend’s little girl, though, so at least it won’t be wasted.  The toast coaster isn’t my favorite for only one reason — it’s wood.  It seems to me that it would get ruined very quickly.  I decided I’m going to try and decorate it (or ruin it – with my luck) with the glitter glue set…or with whipple and cabochons.  We shall see.

This is my most favorite Kawaii Box so far and my third up until now.  That’s not a lot to go on, but I think they’re getting better and better…at least out of these three.  I hope they keep adding something with alpacas in the boxes each month!!

I highly recommend Kawaii Box if you’re into kawaii and cutesy stuff.  They’re only $18.90 per month with FREE worldwide shipping.  That’s an awesome deal.  And, as I said before, if you fall in love with any of your items and want more, you can just head over to Blippo and buy one or two or fifty. 🙂

Thanks so much if you’ve read this far — you deserve an award and a huge round of applause!  As always, stay kawaii!

Stay Kawaii!!

Beauty Joy Box Subscription Unboxing

Subscription Queen

Beauty Joy Box is a pretty hip monthly subscription box that provides 4 beauty products (at least one being full-sized) and 1 jewelry product.  The cost is $15.00 per month with free USA shipping.  Not too shabby!!

This was actually my last month because of my kawaii addiction (there’s too many kawaii things left to buy out there!!), but I wanted to share what was in this month’s box.  Usually they send a cute box with tissue paper and tissue “strings”, but this month’s was just a brown delivery box (disappointing) AND I didn’t receive an info card so I have no idea where or who the jewelry comes from.  But, no worries…let us begin.

Full-Sized Almay Liquid Lip Balm in Apricot Pucker

You’ll be able to see that it is a very subtle color.  It’s not too dark at all and is great for a “light” day look.  I imagine you could add it to a darker lipstick to add some lighter shine.

Almay 1 Almay 2 Almay 3

Cargo Cosmetics Essential Lip Color in Dubai

Again, this is another VERY subtle lip color.  It pretty much blended into my skin/lip tone and didn’t have a “wow” factor at all.

Cargo 1 Cargo 2 Cargo 3

NYX Single Eyeshadow in Bright Green

This is a VERY bright color and not my style.  I have green eyes, but they’re dark and this green just doesn’t suit them or me at all.

NYX 1 NYX 2

Nabi Retractable Waterproof Lip Liner in Hot Red

Again, another BRIGHT color.  If I was wearing a bright red lipstick, this lip liner would be perfect.  It is NOT a good fit for the two lippies that came with this month’s box.  But alas, I have 1500 lip sticks (slight exaggeration), so I’m sure I have something to work it with.  🙂

Silver Arm Cuff

I have no idea who made this or which company it came from since I didn’t receive an information card with this month’s box.  It’s pretty, but I have big arms (oh how I wish I were a size -4) so I tightened it to turn it into a bracelet.

Arm Cuff

So, overall, I give the box…..3 out of 5 stars.  It definitely could have had some more flattering colors and items that went well together.  AND an information card would have been useful as would keeping with the cute boxes.  Perhaps I’m being overly picky, but this is just my opinion so take it as you like.  🙂

I still recommend them, though!!  For $15.00 a month, you can’t beat it.

Another Kawaii Box Giveaway!!

I am always stoked to find out about these Kawaii Box giveaways.  Nothing says “Awwwww” like a box full of kawaii goodness.  This time, the giveaway is from Girl Meets Box.  You should check out their blog and read reviews on assorted boxes and hear their opinions on the different subscription services out there.  I ALWAYS recommend looking up opinions, reviews, and unboxing videos before subscribing to anything!  Alright, now to the fun stuff.  The giveaway is located here.  Be sure and enter, have fun, and GOOD LUCK!!!  🙂

Another Kawaii Box Giveaway??

You betcha!  This time it’s Amber Demure who is giving away a free Kawaii Box.  You’ve read about it before, but Kawaii Box is THE COOLEST and CUTEST subscription box out there!  Each month you receive 10-12 kawaii items in a cute little box and the cost is $18.90 per month with FREE SHIPPING!  You can’t beat that.  So, go and check out Amber’s blog and be sure and enter the giveaway here.

Kawaii Box Giveaway

I personally think that Kawaii Box is one of the neatest subscription services out there.  If you’re not into kawaii or cutesy type things, though, it will seem pretty ridiculous.  If you’re like ME, though, you will fall in love with each and every little thing you receive in every box.

Awesomely enough, Beauty is Sincerity is holding a giveaway so that YOU can try and win a free Kawaii Box.  It IS international (and Google is more than happy to translate the page if you can’t read it) and ends in 5 days.  So go check it out!  What do you have to lose?  You can find the actual giveaway here.
