It’s been quite a while since I’ve subscribed to a beauty box but I used to LOVE them. There’s nothing quite like a monthly mailing of beauty samples you can test out for yourself. So why did I ever stop? So many of the monthly subscription boxes seemed to be filled with foil packet samples that I couldn’t use more than once, perfumes I didn’t like, and haircare and skincare which I’m picky about. My dream box would be all high end beauty with a deluxe or full size product thrown in there once in a while. That never seemed to exist, so I stopped subscribing.
Fast forward a couple years, and here we are. I just discovered the Macy’s Beauty Box and to say it is fulfilling my dreams for a sample box is an understatement. This box has been around since last year I believe, and when I peek at previous boxes to this month, it seems like every month has products I’ve been dying to try for a long time. Brands like Sunday Riley, MAC, Peter Thomas Roth, It Cosmetics, Coola, Tarte, Clarins, etc. are in these boxes and there is such a wide array of products! I’m really into natural beauty so I love seeing some cleaner brands in the mix, and was super surprised to see that April’s box contained a natural deodorant.
I have the May 2018 box and I have been super impressed. The theme is “The Bronzed Look.”
Say hello to summer with a sun-kissed glow! From highlighters to bronzers & more, our warm, golden picks are all you need for a radiant look.
Products in the bag:
- DOLCE&GABBANA Dolce Garden Eau de Parfum Spray
- Dermablend Glow Creator Multi-Use Liquid Highlighter
- Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer
- NUDESTIX Nudies Glow All Over Face Color
- IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil
- Benefit Cosmetics BADgal BANG! 36-Hour Full-Blast Volumizing Mascara
Of these products, the only sample I didn’t love was the perfume, but I’m not much for perfume samples. I love that we got a mini of the liquid highlighter and it was packaged in a way that I’ll be happy to try it (no foil packaging). I love that the bronzer, mascara and eyebrow pencil are deluxe sized samples, and although it’s tiny, I’m super excited to try the Nudestix! I’ve been wanting to try this brand and now is my chance!
Every month you subscribe, for $15 you will receive a chic pouch, 5 deluxe samples + one bonus, and a $5 off coupon for your next beauty purchase. I love that they’re sending you a subscription that is so nice they know you’ll want the full size and they’ll chip in to help you get it! Because isn’t that the point of these bags anyway? To find stuff you’ll love?
So, in short…I think I’ve found my favorite beauty subscription box. This one is a keeper! What is your favorite box? Tell me in the comments below!
