Beauty box subscription services can be a total hit or miss with me and this month was a total miss for me with Beauty Box 5.
This was only my second month with BB5.
The box came packaged like it did last month in that tiffany blue color box and I have to admit it looks so pretty sitting inside my white mailbox.
This wasn’t an awesome month for me with this box and I wasn’t blown away by the box. I had actually said that if February’s box was like this that I would cancel so I guess we will have to see what February brings.
Lets get into this months box shall we.
Each month the goodies come packaged in this white mesh bag which I kind of like because I am able to reuse the bags for other items or gifts.
The first item is from Modelco lip pencil in the shade pomegranate and this is a full size item 1.6g and it sales for $18.00
In the line of pencils I got a Natural Formula Eye Accent Pencil in the shade Mint and this is a full size item 1.8g for $6.99
Perfumies is new to me and I have never heard of them before this box. Its a solid perfume stick and I got the scent Flirtationship. Its a spicy, exotic with crisp top notes of orange zest and fresh greens highlight a feminine bouquet of jasmine, orchid, vanilla and violet on a warm background of rosewood, sandalwood, and soft musk. I actually really like the smell of this and as it wore on I loved. This is another full size item 0.07oz for $7.00
An item I have gotten in previous boxes is the Ferro Blush 3x in desert rose. Although they are saying its a new shade for 2013, I’m really not sure because I got it in beauty boxes in 2012. I’m not sure I would use it as a blush but I do know you can use it as a eye shadow. Which I will probably do. Its a really nice pink shade.
Finally the last two items are from Global Goddess by Shalini Vadhera. Its a Shine Coconut Amla Revitalizing Hair Treatment and they are both the same sample. The samplesa re 5ml each and I am going to try this out on my hair and I was reading that you can also use it as a mositurizer when you get out of the bath.
You can see the box did pay for itself but I just didn’t feel the wow factor in it. This is still one of the cheaper boxes that I do get so we will see.
What interests you? What would you be willing to try?
