CANDI’S POV: So Choix ( Beauty Review)

    Last week the lovely folks of the beauty startup So Choix (pronounced shwaaaa) sent me a beauty box to check and I was super excited to get the chance to play in new makeup products. If you’re a beauty lover this review is totally for you.


The word CHOIX (pronounced “SHWAA”) is French for “choice” which makes perfect sense for consumers that enjoy shopping online.

With So Choix makeup lovers get the chance to choose makeup samples from popular brands, to try in the comfort of their own home. The samples are cute and plentiful. For my box I selected:


1) Dior ‘Diorshow’ Extase Mascara In black
2) Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Pur Couture’ Lip Color in 1 Le Rouge
3) Tom Ford Nail Lacquer in African Violet
4) Smashbox ‘Be Legendary’ Lip Gloss in Azalea
5) Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 in BB cream Dark

The packaging was simple and chic. The box includes small applicators to use to apply your makeup.

I was really eager to try Dior’s ‘Diroshow’ Mascara which I heard great things about. I requested the sample in black and I absoloutly love the results. The product added volume and fullness to my lashes.

I then tried out the lip color by Yves Saint Lauren in ‘Rouge Pur Couture‘. I love red lipstick and I actually was surprised buy the finish of this lippie. Being that it looked very rich, it went on very smooth, not too textured so it didn’t dry my lips out.

The ‘Be Legendary’ lip gloss in Azalea by Smashbox was very sheer and not a fav of mine out of all of the items I selected.

I have yet to try the Tom Ford Nail Lacquer in African Violet but once I do I will surely share on my snapchat @Addicted2Candii.

Lastly the Smashbox BB cream, didn’t match my skin. My summer color differs from my fall/winter skin tone so I will definitely visit wwww.SoChoix.com to request a sample during the fall season.

    CTRL = Black Girl Magic! Congrats to Sza on creating a classic debut album!
    Buzzed-about singer/songwriter SZA nets her first top 10 album with the arrival of her debut full-length studio effort, Ctrl, at No. 3. It bows with 60,000 units, of which 25,000 are in traditional album sales. The set was powered by streams, as the title earns 33,000 SEA units (equating to 49.52 million streams for the songs on the album). The remainder of its 60,000-start is comprised of TEA (2,000 units). Ctrl is SZA’s second top 40-charting effort, following the No. 39 peak of her mixtape Z back in 2014. - Billboard

    Jay Z and Beyonce' are officially parents of twins!! Word on the net is that the megastars welcomed a baby boy and baby girl sometime last week. No official date has been confirmed, however we do know that the world's most popular twins are here!! Grandpa Matthew Knowles took to his twitter to celebrate the arrival of his grandtwins.
    I'm sure it will be a while before we see the babies, but I'm sure once we do our hearts will melt. I'm so happy Jay now has a son!!! He wanted a little Shawn Carter for a while now. Blue Ivy now has two playmates. Congrats to the Carters on the double bundle of joy.
