Benevolent Beauty Box October 2016

Benevolent Beauty Box is a monthly subscription box that sends out between 4 and 7 cruelty-free beauty products.  They promise that everything will be full sized unless it is a bonus item.  They also say that it will be mostly makeup with a possibility of skin, hair, or brushes included.  Boxes start at $15.95 a month for a mini box and $29.95 for the deluxe box, with slight discounts for longer plans.  Shipping to Canada is $8.00 a month.  This was another box I snagged on Mother’s Day for a great deal and I can’t wait to see what’s inside.

This box is small but well packed and has plenty of things inside to keep me happy.

They have a really great info card.  It not only has the items you received but also all the social media and website options.  They tell you all about each item and why it is good for you.

Ardency Inn Punker Eyes Like Fire Shadow-$21.00

This is a cream eye shadow that has a built in brush to dispense and blend.  It took about 100 cranks to get it to come out but once it started it was easy to brush on.  You are supposed to apply a layer on the eyelid and use your fingers to blend out into the perfect smokey eye.  I suck at smokey eyes and this is a pure black, thick cream.  I may be able to use this for a thick eyeliner but it’s only going to be for Halloween any other time.  I’m not talented enough to make this one work.

LaRitzy Eyeshadow in Iced Malted-$16.00

I get the LaRitzy sub box so  this is not new to me, however the shade is one I don’t have.  This is a super shimmery rosy bronze.  It is vegan and can be use both wet and dry.  I’m happy with this one.

Medusa’s Makeup Maracuja Oil-$14.00

This seems like a very small bottle but it turns out you only need 2 drops to do your whole face!  It can be used as your night moisturizer and is good for basically any skin type, body part, and even for massages and insomnia.  I don’t care too much for the scent but it’s not offensive.  It is an oil though so you feel greasy and shiny upon application.

Modish Polish Nail Polish in And You Are?-$12.00

This is a vegan and 5-free polish.  I love the deep purple creamy colour.  It says that the brush has 398 bristles for smooth application and I’m going to take their word for it.

Tat2u Makeup Matte Lipstick in New Generation-$16.00

This is a great colour!  It’s described as a light plum and I think it looks good on me.  My lips are a little dry right now, which makes for a bad combo with matte lipstick but once I get that taken care of this is going to become a favourite.

Tat2u Makeup Lip Pencil in Hyper-$14.00

This is a match to the lipstick.  It is a plum shade that I definitely do not have in my stash.  It glided smoothly and didn’t pull at my lip skin while I was using it.  I don’t use lip liner all that much but there are times when you need that extra staying power it gives.

This box is so good.  I have yet to get one that has items I don’t like. The five items included have a value of $93.00.  I cannot figure out how they are sending out such high value boxes but I love it.   I don’t really have a preference to vegan or organic but I like makeup in general and everything in this box made me happy.  This is my last box from them and I’m sad about that but I’ve enjoyed every last one of them.  Right now if you want to sign up you can use the code WELCOME to save 10% off your order.
