I’ve really been enjoying Beauty Box Five. I love getting a package in the mail each month. It’s a little like Christmas morning when the mailman comes holding a turquoise box in his hands.
Beauty Box 5 is a subscription based service that introduces you to products you may not have tried before. Each month you will receive a mix of five trial-sized and full-sized products. This month I received a full-size lipstick and a full-size lip liner.
Go visit Beauty Box 5 for all the fun details.
April’s Beauty Box holds the following:
- BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Palette
- Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick
- Blum Naturals All Purpose Cleansing Wipes
- Jergens Natural Glow – 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer
- Bonne Bell Lip Liner
Let’s discuss the makeup first.
I love Nicka K New York’s Hydro Lipstick. It’s extremely moisturizing and my alligator skin needs all the moisture it can get. At only $4.99 for a full-size lipstick, I think the Hydro lipstick is great choice for summer. I also love that it’s paraben-free! I can’t wait to check out more lipsticks by Nicka K New York.
I paired it with the Bonne Bell Lip Definer and they made a perfect set. Now, when I use lip liner, I outline my lips and then I also fill them in with liner. This helps my lipstick last longer. Using liner also give your lips a fuller color, especially if your lipstick is on the sheer side.
Don’t laugh, but I tried to only photograph my lips. I felt like I was having both a bad hair day and a bad face day. Ever have one of those?
Turns out taking pictures of my lips looks really silly. Go figure!
Anyway, I wanted to show you the lipstick on. I like the color. It’s natural looking and yet it’s not nude. You can certainly tell I’m wearing lipstick.
I told you; my skin is like alligator leather. I hope this picture isn’t scaring you, but I wanted you to see the colors close-up.
This is BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Palette. The colors are right on target for spring. Shades of purple are everywhere this spring. The gold is fun for a sun-kissed summer look. It’s the perfect palette to toss in your purse or take on a trip.
The next product is Blum Naturals All Purpose Cleansing Wipes. They are infused with aloe vera and are the perfect size to remove your eye-makeup or fix smudges throughout the day. They have a yummy citrus smell, and they come in the perfect sized container to throw in your purse. Wipes aren’t just for kids!
The last product in this month’s Beauty Box Five is Jergens Natural Glow 3 Day Moisturizer.
I’m excited to use this product. I’m general not the tanning type. I mean, I always get a tan in the summer, but it’s usually from outdoor activities. I’m not one to lay out for hours at a time. I’ve also never used a self-tanner. That’s shocking, because my alligator legs are white as smooshy marshmallows. If Jergens can fix my legs for Easter, it will be a miracle. I’ll be back to update you after my three days to a natural glow are complete.
Have you ever used a self-tanner?
That’s April’s Beauty Box Five. You should check it out! It’s super-fun to get a girly gift in the mail once a month.
