BeautyCon BFF Beauty Subscription Box Review – August 2015
BeautyCon BFF is a new quarterly beauty subscription box. They highlight different beauty influencer curators each month, and send a mix of beauty and accessory items.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
FYI – I signed up and the box almost shipped immediately (This is the summer box), so I think if you sign up now you will get this box quickly.
Also – this box put a smile on my face before I even got to the items. This Beyonce cash is amazing. (It includes a coupon on the back to share with friends for a discount on this box: BESTIE5 – I couldn’t get it to work, but let us know if it works for you).
This is seriously such a fun box to unwrap!
The Subscription Box: BeautyCon BFF Box
The Cost: $35.99 a box (ships once a quarter)
The Products: “Our favorite beauty products and accessories delivered right to your door each season. Plus, members get the chance to win amazing experiences with our influencers!”
Ships to: US Only
This box includes an info sheet list and a printed photo of Teala Dunn – the curator for the Summer Essentials box.
Baby Lips Lip Balm in Quenched – Value $2.69
This is a clear lip balm with SPF 20. I can see why these Baby Lips balms are so popular – they’re very moisturizing and this one leaves just a hint of natural looking shine.
eva NYC Surf Spray – 1 oz Value $6
This didn’t end up working like a sea salt spray on my hair – instead it just gave my hair texture and volume. (That’s actually much more useful for me – so I’m good!)
Colour Pop ‘La La Eye Shadow – Value $5
NYX Wicked Lippie in Betrayal – Value $6
This eye shadow is a highly pigmented copper/rose gold. It’s a really wearable color for me – which is good, since the purple lipstick is a no-go! Swatched below:
BeautyCon Lana Sunnies – Value $10?
BeautyCon Flower Crown Headband – Value $7?
There are few non-beauty items in this box, and most of them are BeautyCon branded. (AKA – not branded). I knew signing up for this box that I was probably on the pushing the intended demographic age, so I’ll probably share some of these goodies with my younger/more fashionable cousin!
Crown Brush Deluxe Infinity Shadow/Crease Duet Brush – Value $6.99
I don’t wear waterproof mascaras often (I prefer just finding regular mascaras that I can wear a full day without any smudging/flaking), but I’m going to give this one a try.
And makeup brushes are always a welcome addition to any box!
BeautyCon Bars & Studs Earrings – Value $9?
(Again – I’m guessing on the values of all BeautyCon items, so let me know if you think my numbers are off!)
BeautyCon Lips for Days Clear Bag – Value $5?
I like that they included a makeup bag in this box – plus it’s a pretty large size and I love that it is see-through. (It does smell a bit like an inflatable pool toy though!)
Pura Vida Bracelet – Value $5
I’ve received Pura Vida bracelets in a few past subscription boxes – they look cute stacked, and their charity causes are pretty great too!
Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a value of about $70. They advertise that each box includes a value of $100+, so I’m guessing I underestimated some of the values on the BeautyCon items. Even with my estimates I think this is a pretty good value for a $35 box – and it definitely is a fun box, with a lot of products and variety.
