A while ago, I was lucky enough to be sent the RAN Q4 Bonus Box from Rakuten. Each quarter, Rakuten chooses 50 lucky bloggers to send them a few beauty and fashion products from several brands they partner with. I am so excited to show you guys today all the products in the RAN Bonus Box and some amazing brands it helped me discover! So lets get right to it!

e.l.f. Party Ready Eyeshadow Palette

I was ecstatic to see the e.l.f. Party Ready Eyeshadow Palette in my Bonus Box because it's been about 3 years since I've used their products. e.l.f. is known for having decent quality (usually hit-or-misses for me) and crazy affordable products. The packaging is very simple; it's an all black plastic palette. Don't be fooled though, the quality of their products sure make up for the plain packaging!

This palette includes 10 different shades with matte, satin, and shimmer finishes. About half the palette is filled with gorgeous basic, neutral shades for a natural day look, while the other half is composed of darker, more sultry shades to create the ultimate smokey, night look! Most of the shadows are decently pigmented and easily blendable, with exceptions for the purple and dark blue shades which were duds out of all the shadows; they turned out be sheer, somewhat patchy (so pack on the color), and a bit powdery/chalky. The rest of the shades, however, performed really well! The shimmery shades are my personal favorite from the e.l.f. eyeshadow palette. I mean, the first shade is a gorgeous champagne and the third one is a jaw-dropping golden bronze! The color choices in the palette are ideal for shading, highlighting, and defining the eyes.

What's better?! The e.l.f. Party Ready Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette retails for only $10.00 and is available at elfcosmetics.com, HERE!

Elemis Skincare Products

I was able to test out the Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser and sample packets of the Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Moisturizer, Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm, and the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich. 

Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser
More than an anti-aging cleanser, Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser actually withdraws impurities and at the same time infuses the skin with anti-aging properties!

The Elemis Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser is incredibly gentle on the skin! It washes away leftover makeup and other impurites like sebum. My face is left feeling refreshed and looking healthier and brighter.

As for the samples, here are some first impressions: 

The Elemis Total Glow Bronzing Moisturizer helped me achieve a gradual tan that, thankfully, isn't orange-looking at all! It looks totally natural and doesn't apply streaky or unevenly. 

The Pro-Collagen Marine Cream Ultra-Rich is such a luxe cream! It's a thick moisturizing cream that supplies your skin with ample amounts of moisture. Skin feels plump and hydrated! 

Lastly, the Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm might be my favorite Elemis product so far. It can be used as a light moisturizer or a makeup primer, but what makes me love it is that it instantly transforms my skin into a smooth, luminous canvas! It helps makeup glide on effortlessly!

The Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser (1 oz) retails for $10 and is available at TimetoSpa.com, HERE

The LUNA mini is a vibrant, palm-sized, silicone skincare device that delivers deep yet gentle facial cleansing in 1 minute via innovative T-Sonic pulsing technology designed for all skin types.

I have personally bought and owned a LUNA mini in the past, so I can thoroughly review it. It is THE best cleansing device I have ever used, hands-down. I have tried the Clarisonic before, but the brush head was just way too harsh on my skin. The LUNA mini, however, is super gentle and truly does deep clean my pores in only 1 minute! I notice a huge decrease in the amount of sebum, sebaceous filaments, and blackheads whenever I use this magical little device. 

Also, if you have a problem with dry spots and rough patches, then the LUNA mini will become your best friend! I tend to have dry, flakey skin, especially in the colder months, and the LUNA really helped to gently exfoliate away the flakey skin leaving me with a completely smooth and soft surface. The best part is that the LUNA mini is made out of silicone which doesn't grow bacteria... YES, YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT. :)

The LUNA Mini retails for $99 and is available at Foreo.com, HERE!

The Figi Friendship Bracelet can be easily adjusted, thanks to the toggle sides, and can fit most wrist sizes.

This lighweight scarf is great for any season. With chiffon as it's principle material, it has a luxurious feel without the cost.

The Gradient Women's Seaside Shawl Scarf is a very thin and lightweight scarf that's perfect to add a pop to any outfit. The fabric is very sheer and can be dressed up or down whether you're having a date night out, or hanging out during the day!

An ankle length skinny jean with all the comfort and ease of a legging. The Emma power-legging combines exceptional fit and quality with our revolutionary Smart Denim fabrics, for a flattering and slender silhouette. Heath is a dark denim with vintaging along the thigh and rips at both knees. 

Front Rise: 8.25"
Inseam: 29"
Leg Opening:10"

Being a very short girl that's barely 5'2", I always struggle with finding jeans that not only fit my petite frame, but also ones that hug my curves and flatter my figure. I often run into jeans that have long inseams and nothing makes a girl look shorter than having excess jean material bunched up around the ankles. 

Luckily, the Emma Jean is a lifesaver and truly the best pair of fitting jeans I've ever found (besides, you know, jeans from the Junior department LOL). What's so unique about the Emma Jean is that it doesn't feel like a jean at all! It's so comfortable that it feels like a legging on. There's so much freedom to move and bend anyway you want without the jeans slipping down or constricting you. I tend to favor skinny jean styles because those are the most flattering for my petite frame. Heath is a gorgeous dark denim with vintage fading along the thigh. There are small rips and distressed detailing near or on the front pockets and back pockets. Not to mention, the quality is superb! This jean retains its shape even after hours and hours of wear. It holds its shape and sculpts my body so that my legs look long and slender! These jeans are my all-time favorite pair!

The Emma Jean iconretails for $178 and is available at DL1961.com, HERE!
