Beauty Box 5- a review

Hey folks! It’s like the makeup gods smiled on me. I was asked by Beauty Box 5 to receive a box a month and review it for them. Well, twist my arm. Okay! Get makeup sent to my house and tell my readers about it? Hmm… this isn’t rocket science folks, I can do this.

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box of monthly beauty products. For $12 you get a surprise box of 5 items. Some full size and some deluxe samples.

November is my first box. I was thrilled to receive the little robin’s egg blue package. In it were these little goodies:

Included were these items:

Model co Illusion Lip Enhancer Kit
Aveeno daily moisture lotion
LA Fresh travel light facial cleansing wipes
Simply Sparkle glitter toe spacers
NUBAR nail polish

I’m pretty much an expert with subscription boxes and love the chance to try brands I may not be familiar with.

I was happy with the Model Co lip pencil. Basically that is all it is. “Lip enhancer kit” is sort of stretching it. It’s a lip pencil people. But it’s in a perfect nude shade and the formula is soft and creamy.

The NUBAR polish is a formula without formaldehyde, or toulene and DBP. Nasty stuff that many fancy nail companies are making their formulas without.The one I got is a cute glittery top coat.

I was pleased with my first Beauty Box 5. Except the glitter toe spacers. I’m not a fan of toe spacers and don’t need a glitter set at that. But, I can’t wait to try some of their premium brands they feature, like- Becca, Ellis Faas and NUME, to name a few!

Subscribe one for yourself or gift a special someone a subscription for a Christmas present!

I’ll let you know every month what comes in my box. If you’re extra good, I’ll make a YouTube video or tutorial as well.

Yay Beauty Box 5!

  1. I would dig a box like this. I don’t do beauty unless it shows up on my doorstep and begs me. This would be perfect.

  2. I am so jealous! This sounds so fun! Can I come over and play with your make-up? Can’t wait to see what you get next.

  3. Love this – and we know that you know beauty products!

  4. I am not quite sure it was $12 worth of happiness for me….but it would still be fun to get it dropped at my doorstep every month!

  5. -Just viewed your December Tutorial- looks awesome! LOVE how you did your eyes! I subscribe to Birchbox every month and wonder if you do? I’m thinking the Beauty Box deal looks better/bigger/nicer!!!!!


    • I love Birchbox. I’ve gotten them for 2 or 3 years now. Some months are better than others with both boxes so it’s hard to decide what’s better.
