SoChoix Monthly Box Review

Omgoodness…! I have collaborated with SoChoix! (excitedly jumping up & down). SoChoix is not your average makeup subscription box.

Most beauty boxes pack up things from brands they think you’ll enjoy & ship them off to you. Now this means that when you get the box, you’ll get brands you haven’t heard of and you get to experience new things.

Now… this is nice that you get to try new things. BUT! you hardly get brands that you are dying to try & most of the time you get products that aren’t really your style.

Now SoChoix is different because you actually get to PICK the items that will be sent to you! The site offers only high-end makeup samples. So if you dying to try Tom Form, Bobbi Brown, Marc Jacobs and so so much more, this site has everything you have been lusting after to try !

How SoChoix Works :

Fill your queue with all of the beauty products you want to try and every month we’ll send you So Choix samples of the top 5 products from your queue!

Purchase additional samples “a la carte” for $3 each (non-members pay $5 per sample). You’ll also receive special members-only pricing on all our curated boxes!

Every month you’ll automatically earn 250 points (equivalent to $5 credit) to use how you wish! Continue to earn, save, and redeem points on store credit and special gifts!

SoChoix was kind enough to let me play around on their site and send me a box to try (tiny excited scream). Now, of course, I had to try some things for a full face makeup look (#makeupproblem lol).

If you would like to see me open up my first SoChoix Box && give my first impressions click this link :

Now ! The products that I had to try where :

YSL “Rouge Volupte” Radiant Lipstick in Caress Pink – OMG, LOVE LOVE LOVE ! This lipstick was so amazingly creamy && such staying power! Be forewarned that there will be some YSL reviews on the way, cause I NEED some of these lipsticks in my life.

D&G “the Blush” Cheek Colour in Delight 35 – Lovely. Very pigmented and long wearing. This color also had a light shimmer which gave a lovely sun kissed summer pink shine.

Tom Ford Traceless Stick foundation Ivory T F – YASS. Out of all the products I sampled. This one was by far the one that caught my attention. The application was dreamy! overall coverage was medium to full && it lasted all day! (which is saying something in my desert climate)

Kevyn Aucoin Cream Highlighter in Halo- I wasn’t in love with this product. But I am not often in love with cream highlighters. That being said, the color was lovely! Very iridescent. This product would make an excellent top off to a subtle blush or even add to the lips for a pop of shimmer.

Bobbi Brown Serum concealer Cool Sand BB- This concealer is such an interesting product. When applied, it evened out my skin tone && texture, however when looking into the mirror it didn’t appear to truly “cover” my under eye area. That being said, If you watch my first reactions video, you’ll see that there was a definitely diminishing of my sleepy eyes. Hmm…I might need to play with this one more ! (Definitely interesting)

All of these items are ones that I have been wanting to give-a-go BUT sometimes I am wary of trying high-end makeup for fear of wasting money on an item that won’t work. (Cause let’s be honest when makeup doesn’t work out, you don’t return it, you stick it in a drawer, box, trash can and try the next thing).

With SoChoix you are sent samples taken from the full sized makeup items you crave, thus giving you a genuine idea of how the makeup will match your skin texture, color and more. Each sample ranges from 0.3 to 0.5 grams. (More than enough for a true “sample” wear of the makeup – if not more).

I really enjoyed playing with all the items SoChoix  was kind enough to send me. What I love about this subscription box, is that you get to choose what you want to try. This eliminates the “hoping” that you get something that you will like from your subscription boxes. && guarantees you actually get a sample of a product you want to try (Now that’s what I’m talking about)! Cause really who has the funds or time to waste on products your not going to love.

SoChoix before you buy ❤

Hello. My name is Victoria. Born and raised in New Mexico. I have experienced my fair share of houses. However, it is here, in this self-titled blog, that I have truly found my home. Here I document everything I love. (& that is a lot) I find life intoxicating. Everything from places to a good read (shoot-even bad reads) food, makeup, experiences…my life. I document here. In hopes of trapping the beauty of the world, I see around me. I have been told I see the world through rose-colored spectacles. & I intend to share it that way. Here I hope to discover, discarded and rediscover who I am, how I interact with the world, and who I inspire to be. I hope you find joy in my writing, and hopefully, you also will write something to me.

    1. Oh! The cost for this box is $15, & of course depending on if you add anything extra to your monthly box the cost can change. =) Hope this helps !
