One of my favorite beauty websites to read is Total Beauty.com. They always have interesting articles like "Orange is the New Black - The Weirdest Place you'll Find Rad DIY Beauty Tips". They also have "Collections" which are kind of like a one-time subscription service where you get a bunch of beauty stuff at a discount based around a theme. Well I was reading on of my favorite blogs Making up the Midwest (she's from Chicago, makes amazing videos, reviews a TON of products and always has the 411 on the best deals.) - Go follow her now, I'll wait.
She mentioned that Total Beauty was doing a Mystery collection box for $26 + free shipping but she had a discount code so you could get it for $22.10 +free shipping. I had my debit card out faster than you could say "Beauty Hoarder". It promised 7 full size products and 3 deluxe sizes + 2 Full Size NYX products that were not a Mystery (You knew you were going to get their color balm and a roll on shadow)
So here's what arrived today!
It only took 5 days to get here - so what's inside?
ALL SORTS OF GOODIES!
4 Revlon ColorStay Polishes in (LtoR) Jungle, Seashell, Sunburst & Trade Winds
Value - $20.00 (4.99 ea)
Revlon Lip Butters in Pink Lemonade & Sorbet! Value - $12.98 ($6.49 ea)
NYX Roll on Shimmer in Nude & NYX Color Lip Balm in Thank you
Value - $8.25 ($4.50 & $3.75)
Ziaja Goat's Milk Day Cream - which I may use as a hand cream :) And Chella Resurfacing Mask (Enzyme and Lactic Treatment) My favorite kind of mask - the kind that takes some skin off!
Value - $6.33 ($2.25 & $4.08) A bottle of the Chella Mask usually runs $60!
Ferro Cosmetics Blush X3 Mineral Blush in Terra Cotta & Suzie's Glow - the Ferro Website is so cool you might want to check it out if you like Mineral makeup. The full size are 4 grams and cost $17.00, I'm going to guess these are a gram each? They get all over when you open it because it doesn't have a sifter and a little goes a long way.
It's Terra Cotta on the Left and Suzie's Glow on the right - so pretty (I wasn't able to really catch the colors) Value -$8.50 (4.25 ea)
Revlon ColorStay Shadow Palette in Sea Mist - Great colors! Value $5.99
The Honest Co. organic lip balm in Sweet Orange Vanilla - $3.32 (Usually these come in a trio for $9.95).
Total Value - $65.37 Now I was using Target, Cherry Culture and Amazon prices - so I may be lower than what you could find these for, but that's where I would buy them.
It is a lot of Revlon products - but I like the ones I got a lot. I also like that they introduced me to new affordable brands. I am also pleased that the other half of the products are almost all cruelty free and made with more "natural" ingredients, so I feel did they did a good job of giving you a Total Beauty package. I only paid $22.15 - am I pleased - oh yeah!
What do you think?
