Today we’re taking a peek inside my August Beauty Box 5. This month was about 50/50 for me. Some of the stuff I’m excited about and the other half not so much. One positive is that 4 out of the 5 products are full size.
If you don’t already know about Beauty Box 5, it’s a monthly subscription service that sends five travel-sized, deluxe-sized and full-sized cosmetic products straight to your front door for only $12 per month.
What was in my August 2015 Beauty Box 5:
Hask Beauty Smoothing Deep Conditioner ($2.39) – I’ve used these before and they work pretty well. Makes my hair feel silky soft afterwards.
Donnamax Nail File and Case ($4.99) – I can always use a fresh nail file so this will come in handy.
Pur-lisse Pur-Moist Hydra-Balance Moisturizer ($16.17) – I’ve gotten so many Pur-lisse products in these sample boxes and have not liked any of them. I’ve tried this moisturizer before and it’s really not impressive.
Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen in Plum ($19.99) – The most exciting item in the whole box! It has a nice fine point and is nicely pigmented. Easily transfers without tugging or pulling. The color pretty much looks black from far away so I’ll be able to wear it daily.
Jerome Alexander Hot Stuff Go Pop Compact Palette ($10.99) – This is really bulky and kinda cheap looking. Luckily the palette can be removed from the bright orange silicone outer case.
It comes out as a normal black plastic compact with a large mirror in the lid. There are 3 eyeshadows and 3 lip glosses inside. Surprisingly, the eyeshadows are really pigmented and smooth.
The total retail value of my samples came to $54.53. That’s one of the highest we’ve had in a really long time.
