Beauty Box 5 January 2015

Beauty Box 5 is a subscription box that sends out 5 products or samples every month. They might be makeup, beauty accessories, hair, skincare, fragrance, body, or nail products. It is another of the cheaper ones at $12 a month or even less if you sign up for a longer term. They do charge $3 a month to ship to Canada though.  This box has been a bit hit or miss lately.  Last month was better so I’m hoping they are on an uphill swing. 20150126_160419 The box is quite small but they always get everything in and the info card lists what you got, how to use it, and retail pricing. 20150126_160431 The back of the card. 20150126_160610 Hard Candy Kal-Eye_descope Baked Eyeshadow in Make Believe-$6.00 Full Size I’ve never used any Hard Candy makeup before, though I’ve seen it around quite a bit. It’s a bit hard to see in the picture but this is a blue/grey combo and I like it.  Just used dry it is great and not too dark, though you could use them wet for a super dramatic look.  It also has a good shimmer, and shimmer on my eyes is kinda my favorite thing. 20150126_160740 Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips French Mani in Gold Cabaret-$9.99 Full Size I’ve always wanted to try nail strips but because I have little nails I’m afraid they won’t fit, just like fake nails, which are always too big.  The point of that ramble is that I’m glad to see these and to try them, even though I’m pretty sure the whole french mani thing makes them more difficult to apply then if they were just a solid color. 20150126_160544 Ultraflesh The Gold Standard Mascara in Blackout-2.5mL $8.00 This mascara is supposed to add drama, length, and thickness to your lashes.  Yes please!  It’s a pretty small sample but enough for a week for sure since it recommends three coats.  Any mascara is a win for me since it’s a daily wear item and this way I am stocking up for a while. Update!!!!  SO once I opened this to use it I found it was completely dried up. I’m sending them an email to see what if anything they will do about this but it is useless. New value $0.00.

20150126_160451   Softsoap Nutri Serums Vitamin E Body Wash-50mL $3.19 Not very exciting but useful.  Don’t really have much else to say about this.  I can buy it at my regular grocery store. 20150126_160709 Hard Candy Take Me Out Liner in Sushi-$5.00 Full Size This is an odd package.  The liner is only about half the length and the rest is just some old school cigarette holder I guess.  That being said, I like the color and while the lead is a bit soft it goes on smooth.  I’m okay with this product. This months box has a value of $32.18 and included 3 full size items.  While the body wash is kinda meh, I like and will use everything else.  For some reason this box took much longer than normal to get here but it turned up and all is good with the world. Now if only the rest of my boxes would find their way home……..
