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.

    Bad gyal RiRi slays YET again! The Bajan beauty flexed on the gram rocking an OFF-White mini dress, a denim shirt by Raf Simons finished off with the sickening feather boots by Saint Laurent.
    Effortless style. Love it.
