Now, onto the items!
Emery + Ivory Custom Nail Appliques in Red Over Heels – FULL SIZE! Value $12.99
(Subscribers will receive one of several patterns)
Nail stickers can be pretty hit or miss for me, but these ones worked really well. They were easy to stretch over my nails and I could also file the excess off easily, too. And the transparent portions of these wraps looked great over my greige nail polish:
I really like this look!
Real Her Moisturizing Lipstick in I Am Powerful – FULL SIZE! Value $15
First, props on the packaging – I love the matte black and white contrast on this lipstick tube! The formula itself is moisturizing, goes on smoothly, and provides a lot of pigment, too. (All the good things!) And it’s paraben-free!
Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter Pencil – FULL SIZE! Value $18
I’ve used this pencil before thanks to other subscription boxes, and it is fantastic. You can use it to highlight under the browbone, accent the inner corners of your eyes, etc. And it can work as a concealer, too!
Here it is swatched below the lipstick:
It’s a creamy, matte formula, perfect for everyday use.
Color Me Femme Gold Perfume – Sample
This perfume scent is sweet, and something I could see myself wearing (which is pretty rare for me – I don’t usually wear perfume.) I’m not a fan of getting perfume vial samples in subscription boxes, but considering the previous 3 full-size beauty items, I’m OK with it this time!
Amlactin Ultra Hydrating Body Cream – 1 oz Value $2.80
This cream is rich and hydrating and left my skin feeling super soft. The only downside for me is the ingredient list – I try to avoid parabens in lotions when I can, and this cream is unfortunately made with parabens.
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $49! I think that’s great for a $12 box, and I really love the lipstick, Chella stick, and nail stickers! (And it’s always good when your favorite items in a box also are the highest value, full-size items!)
