The Best Beauty Sh!t We Got Last Week

I would do a giveaway if I were legally allowed to.

I just did a YouTube search for "unboxing beauty," and holy moly! There are over a million videos of people unboxing beauty products — beauty boxes, online shopping "hauls," etc. And some of them get hundreds of thousands of views! It's like watching someone else's Christmas morning home videos, but with a ring light.

I had no idea that so many people enjoyed watching other people receive beauty products. If I'd known, I would have started this new feature a long time ago, because I receive stuff here at the office every day — some that I've called in, but mostly unexpected deliveries — and the xoVain contributors and I end up writing about only a fraction of it. I'm more than happy to share with you the goodies showing up at my desk to help you be more in-the-know about new and upcoming launches and give you my first impression of them, if that's something you're into — and apparently a lot of people are way into that. (Living vicariously is the new living, I guess?)

But since you already know what bags and cardboard boxes look like, we're going to skip the actual "unboxing" part — and I'm going to spare you my awkward facial expressions — and let's just look at pictures I took on the floor next to my desk. And while this isn't everything that arrived last week, it's a selection of what I thought might pique your interest the most.

This is probably not the last time you'll see some of these. After all, it's getting these products that makes it possible for them to be included in future articles. In fact, if there's any specific products you want to know more about, let me know in the comments and I'll make spotlighting them a priority.
