April 2014 BDJ Box: Truly Asian Beauty

 We've known and loved BDJ Box for its consistency in giving us products that are worth trying without spending as much. I think you'd agree with me when I say this month's Pixy-exclusive box was a whole different ball game. Not only did we get more for our money but we also got first dibs on a brand that hasn't even come out in the local market yet! Talk about exclusivity! <3  A lot of bloggers have been raving about this box so let's just go ahead with it. :)
Although it came from an Indonesian parent company, Pixy follows the Tokyo trend of sweet, feminine makeup. Ever heard of Gatsby Hair Styling Wax and Bifesta Makeup Remover? Pixy came from the same company, Mandom Group. According to my dear old friend Google, Pixy started in 1982 and with time, it's been expanding its market overseas.. its latest conquest, the Philippine shores. :)

I know beauty enthusiasts like myself get really excited when new brands become available to us but it's always difficult to decide which particular products are worth buying and which ones should be ignored. Good thing, in this case, the BDJ team took the liberty to collate a box with nothing but the best sellers from the brand. To tell you straight up, I'm genuinely impressed with this box.
Colors of Delight Lipstick Silky Fit Semi-Matte in 220 Haruka (Php 265, 3.8g) –“Can’t decide which finish you want? Get the best of both worlds with this semi-matte lipstick from Pixy. It’s enriched with Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E, so it hydrates your lips throughout the day.”

Colors of Delight Lipstick Silky Fit Satin Lipstick in 216 Pinkish Peach (Php 245, 3.8g) – “This creamy lipstick comes in a hydrating formula that softly colors your lips in a girly hue. It’s perfect to wear during those hot months when you want to look fresh with minimal effort.”

Colors of Delight Lipstick Silky Fit Lasting Matte in 504 Earthy Beige (Php 325, 3.8g) – “Look striking in a bold matte shade with this long-wearing lippy from Pixy. With a pigment-packed formula, it glides on smoothly and won’t tug, so your lips stay comfortable all day long.”
Don't know which lipstick finish and shade would suit you best? BDJ Box got you covered! This month's box not only has one full-sized lipstick - it has THREE! From girly to simple to earthy shades which are perfect if you're trying to mix things up a bit without looking overly done. You can experiment all you want until you find your favorite for every day use. I can't wait to crack open these babies. <3
Ultimate Makeup Cake in Natural Buff (Php 445, 12.5 g) - “Whether you use this as your base or as a finishing powder, it will help you quickly cover any skin flaws, for smoother looking skin. Its oil absorbing properties also cut down unwanted shine.”
 If the Ultimate Makeup Cake didn't match your skin tone; worry not because the Pixy-exclusive box has two more powder foundations that could just possibly be a better fit. Personally, I think the BDJ Box team did a swell job in choosing which powder shades to include to each bella's box because all three shades I got are fairly close to what I use on a daily basis. Great job, BDJ team! Kudos for the effort. :D
UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Fit Compact in Natural Beige (Php 275, 12.2g) - “This powder formula blends perfectly for a smooth and long lasting base. It contains two way whitening squalene oil to prevent dry skin and SPF 15 to protect skin from the sun damage.”

UV Whitening Two Way Cake Perfect Matte Refill in Honey Beige (Php 145, 12g) -“This lightweight powder refill is clinically tested to not trigger blackheads and is enriched with natural extracts and antibacterial kanzo, making it suitable, for oily skin. Feel free to swap it inside the Perfect Fit compact.”
Colors of Delight Waterproof Volumizing Mascara (Php 295, 9ml) – “This waterproof volumizing mascara lengthens and thckens your eyelashes. With its waterproof and long-wearing formula, you don’t need to worry about it smudging.”

Colors of Delight Eyeliner Pencil (Php 265, 3.8g) - “This sexy to use eye pencil is perfect for your everyday look. Apply it thinly for a natural effect, or smudge it for more emphasis. Whichever way you choose, it will surely make your eyes look livelier and brighter.”
Colors of Delight Blush-On in Brown Tea (Php 285, 3.5g) - “This pretty blush will help you pull off that natural flush on your cheeks, giving you a sweet and innocent glow whenever you smile. It also comes with a brush for easy touch ups!”
For the monthly subscription price of Php 580, I received 9 full-sized products worth Php 2,545 in total. That's a basic makeup kit already plus powder refill! If they threw in a brow pencil and an eyeshadow instead of the multiple powder foundations, it would've been a complete starter set. But in any case, I still think this month's box as a whole is a big step up from last month's all-sample Benefit Cosmetics-exclusive box. I'm sure I'd be getting a lot more of use out of this set. <3
