Now, onto the items!
Prestige Cosmetics True Metals Eyeshadow in Gilded – FULL SIZE! Value $9.75
This eyeshadow goes on so smoothly, and it has excellent pigment and shimmer, too. It’s a stunning gold, and I love it! (Swatched in lower photo.)
Bellapierre Cosmetics Cosmetic Glitter in Spectra – FULL SIZE! Value $15
This silver micro glitter is has a holographic sparkle that catches the light beautifully. You will need some heavy duty glitter glue primer to keep it in place, though.
Here it is swatched beneath the eye shadow:
As you can see, without primer I could only get a little glitter to stick. That eyeshadow, though!
Manna Kadar Lash Extending Primer – 4 g FULL SIZE? Value $24
(This is a small tube compared to a regular sized mascara, but based on this listing I believe it is full-size.)
This primer goes on white but dries clear (and it is invisible under mascara anyway). It provided good lash definition and length, so I was able to use less of my regular mascara. Nothing ground-breaking here, but I’ll definitely use the entire sample!
Sweep Lashes – Value $15
While these lashes didn’t come with glue, I appreciate that we get a set of 5! These lashes aren’t as realistic looking as some I’ve tried, but if you’re going for fake lash drama, I don’t think that matters too much.
Sweep Lash Helper – Value $10
This set also came with a tweezer tool for applying lashes. I love this addition! (Since there are no sharp pointy ends, these are way better to use than regular tweezers.)
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $73.75! I think that’s great for a $12 box! I’m continually impressed with Beauty Box 5, and I think it’s a great beauty box if you are looking for value and are OK with getting a mix of drugstore and more high-end brands.
What do you think about the March Beauty Box 5? Did you like this month’s lashes theme? What eye shadow color did you get?
