When monthly beauty subscription plans became popular at first a few years ago, I was totally on board. I was a devoted subscriber to one of the more popular boxes for over a year, but what with all the beauty reviews I write on here, I eventually quit my boxes. Lately, I’ve been kind of itching to try a new monthly box. Beauty Box 5 is one that I hadn’t heard of until my dear friend at Intrubeauty told me about them! Of course I wanted to give them a shot!
This box was really fun to try, and I was pretty impressed. The contents of my box included a mini Cool, Cleanse & Hydrate shampoo and conditioner from Coolway, Jean Pierre Cosmetics Oil-Absorbing Facial Tissues, Be a Bombshell Cosmetics lipgloss in Taupeless, and Model Co. eyeliner in Black.
Truth be told, I have pretty dry skin, so the oil-absorbing facial tissues won’t get used by me. But really, that’s the fun of these boxes! They’re pretty unpredictable, and that’s part of the fun. I actually have a whole drawer in my vanity dedicated to products I know I’ll never use because they’re not for my skin type, the wrong color, etc. I gift them at the holidays, mail them to friends to brighten their day, or give them to my friends’ daughters. I’m like a cool aunt! Little freebies that I’ll never use ensure I keep my cool aunt status, so they’re alright with me.
I really loved that the eyeliner and lip gloss were both full size and gorgeous. I can always use another black eyeliner…especially one with a sharpener in the lid! I can also always use another lipgloss in a neutral shade for my purse. I love touching up and not having to look in the mirror to do so, and this is the perfect shade for it. Taupeless is kind of a sheer nude-apricot shade and I totally love it!
