This box includes an info sheet list.


Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Glass in Taupe with Me – FULL SIZE! Value $3.59

This lip gloss is sheer, but adds a lot of shine with no stickiness. (Swatched in later picture).

SkinFix Hand Repair Cream – 1 oz Value $3.33

I love this stuff! It’s all natural, fragrance-free, and I think the perfect hand cream. The formula is rich and moisturizing without being greasy.


Colour POP Lippie Stix in LBB – FULL SIZE! Value $5

Colour POP Lippie Pencil in LBB – FULL SIZE! Value $5

I like that they included both a liner and lipstick in the same shade! This is somewhat bold for me, but still wearable. (Swatched in later photo).


POP Beauty Kajal Pen in Inky Purple – FULL SIZE! Value $10

I get a ton of eyeliners in subscription boxes, so I was happy to see that this wasn’t another black liner. It’s a very deep purple shade. (Swatched below). The formula goes on smoothly and is paraben-free.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara – .1 oz Value $8

I love all the Benefit Mascara I’ve sampled, and this one is a classic. It’s a good size too – 1/3 the size of the full size version.

Here are the swatches:



BeautyCon Glam Grooves Earbuds – Value $5?

Altoids – Sample

No surprise – these earbuds aren’t super great quality, but they work as a backup pair!


Conair ColorGrip Mini Brush – Value $2?

E.L.F. Small Stipple Brush – Value $3

Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush – Value $6

I love getting makeup tools in subscription boxes, so these are all wins. (The hair brush is cute too). And I actually already have that same brush from E.L.F. and was planning on buying more so that worked out well!


BeautyCon Rings – Value $5?

BeautyCon Necklace – Value $15?

These are BeautyCon branded, so I’m estimating on the value. I’d say the quality is about the same as what you can expect from Forever 21 jewelry.

Here are the rings on:



BeautyCon Scarf – Value $10?

BeautyCon Pouch – Value $3?

(I received this fall box pretty late, so that partially explains the florals in winter!) I love the colors of the scarf:


Verdict: Based on my estimates, this box has a value of about $85. 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. If you’re looking for a box with a ton of products, I think this is a fun and affordable subscription (considering it only ships once a quarter).

What do you think of the Fall Essentials BeautyCon BFF Box? (If you want to see what’s in the Winter box, check out the BeautyConBFF hashtag on Instagram!)

  1. terrible customer service is you have any issues, no one will reply back to you!

  2. Beautycon spring 2016 spoiler is out!!!!

  3. When is the next box due to be send out, any ideas?

  4. Thanks for posting the IG link. Based on your review and the Winter box peeks, I’ve ordered my first BFF box – the Winter box!
    I’m particularly excited for the Goal Digger shiny notebook.

  5. This was my second BFF box. I love the cosmetics and brushes. The have introduced my to some great products that are staples for me now! I am excited to finally get my winter box…. ?. Not sure if I will keep the sub up.Past

    • Ugh. Hit submit before I was done!

      Anyway not sure if I will keep the sub up after this year, it does lean you get then I am, but all the jewelry and accessories have been great gifts for my cousins and nieces!

  6. I swapped for this box and gave it to my daughter for Xmas. It was a big hit with her. SHe particularly loved the scarf, which is huge. SHe’s using it to drape a chair in her room. She also loved the colour pop products. They definitely give her a goth look – she’s not goth or emo – but she does like it.

    I was happy that the only cosmetic made in China that we got was the eyepencil.

  7. Wow! This was a great box for the price. Everything in it is super nice and useful too. Thanks for the heads-up!

  8. Loved this box, it was my first BFF box. I cancelled my Birchbox and got this instead, no regrets 🙂

  9. comment

  10. I like the makeup/skincare and tools but the other products are not for me. Not a bad box though. If anyone has the colour pop lippies and wants to swap let me know because I’d love them!
