I got a bunch of stuff in the mail, including Beauty Box 5. At first glance, I feel so-so about this box.
-Chapstick Hydration Lock, $2.99 retail They also included a coupon for this in the box.
-Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink, $19.99 retail
-Extend YOur Beauty Cosmetic Tool- 6 inches, $5.49 retail
-Nanacoco Nail Polish in Magic Kingdom, $3.95 retail
-Lashem Picture Perfect, $3.95 retail
COST for new subscription: $12/month
Because of a yearly subscription and a coupon code, I pay $8 for Beauty Box 5. At that price, I can't say that they value of the box isn't there. Beauty Box 5 tends to feel more "drugstore," which turns some people off, but is fine with me. I love discovering high end brands, but I also own some pretty quality drugstore products that stand out in my beauty collection. And at the rate that I lose lip balm, the Chapstick is a win for me.
I'm probably going to trade the Lashem Picture Perfect and the Bellapierre Cheek and Lip Stain. I've been getting so many different primers lately and really don't need another. My personal preference for cheeks is powders and my preference for lips is glosses. However, I know some of my eDivv friends love stains and will snatch this up. Nailpolish is so-so for me. This box had nailpolish in last month's box, so I think they need to find a different small product to include. However, I do like being introduced to the Nanacoco brand in two different ways- lipgloss last month and the polish this month.
