Yesterday I got my first Beauty Box 5 - if you are not familiar it with it, it's a subscription service that sends out beauty samples and full size items for a monthly fee. I chose the quarterly subscription for $30. You can get a year for $99 (about $8 a box! no shipping). This month's "theme" was Shades of Beauty.
I decides to get this subscription, because although I <3 Ipsy, I didn't want cosmetic samples all the time.
So here is what was in my box:
Blum Cleansing wipes (there's 30 in that mini bottle!) this is so fun! I love handy travel things. Value $2.49
BH Cosmetics Callifornia Collection Eyeshadow mini Palette - I got this exact one from Ipsy awhile back! But that's ok I have co-workers who want to try it :) Value $1.00
Bonnie Bell Lip Definer - this is not the best quality, but it's a color I don't have so... Value $3.95
Nicka K Lipstick - I had wondered about this brand so I am excited to try it! Value $4.99
The lipstick looks really red in the tube, and the cap color makes you think its RED but...
It's much more berry. The lip liner is a deep berry as you can see from the squiggle. They are more "winter" colors, but I like them.
Overall Value -> $13.93 I paid $10. So it's not like Ipsy super deal, but I'm not totally disappointed, but we will see what the next 2 months bring.
What do think about beauty subscriptions?
