As you may have noticed, I’ve been MIA here for the past month. Ever since Christmas I had been having stomach pains and nausea all day, every day and was pretty much just miserable all around. After many doctor’s visits and many, many tests, I came to find out that it was my gallbladder.
I opted to have it removed on March 11th and I have been recuperating ever since. I’m finally getting back into the swing of things and feeling motivated to get back on the blogging horse.
So today I’m sharing my Beauty Box 5 from last month with you all. February’s box included two stand out products for me. One is a full size eyeshadow and the other is a full size lip liner.
The other items were so, so for me. I’m not really a fan of body washes or lip balms so those didn’t excite me. And the eye primer I’ve gotten before in another sample box.
Let’s take a closer look at my February 2016 Beauty Box 5:
Epic Blend Lip Balm in Raspberry Pomegranate ($3.49) – An all natural, gluten free and organic clear lip balm. Smells fruity and delicious.
Hemp Nation Body Wash in Kiwi-Mango ($7.99) – A nice deluxe sized body wash perfect for travel. It has a yummy fruity scent that gets you in the mood for summer.
Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eyeshadow Primer ($10) – I’ve gotten this primer sample before in another beauty sample bag and wasn’t that impressed by it. Doesn’t do the best at controlling my oily eyelids and keeping my eyeshadow from creasing.
Starlooks Lip Liner in Sultry Sangrita ($16) – Love this! It’s a creamy, pigmented wind up lip liner in a perfect “your lips, but better” color. I’ll get tons of use out of this!
Manna Kadar Beauty 3-in-1 Shadow, Highlight, Blush in Fantasy ($19) – This is also amazing! This powder is so creamy and very pigmented. It’s the most beautiful rose gold color with a nice shimmery finish. Love!
As you can see, the lip liner and the 3-in-1 powder were the stars of this Beauty Box 5. They made the box worth it alone with a retail value of $35 for just those 2 products! In total, February’s Beauty Box 5 came in with a retail value of $56.48.
