Now, on to the items!

Tweez Cosmetics Spectrum of Stars Eyeshadow in Indigo Dare – FULL SIZE! Value $23

How fun is this gold sphere packaging?

More importantly, though, the eyeshadow itself is gorgeous. The pigment and shimmer are excellent, and it’s easy to blend, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

bellapierre Cosmetics Kiss Proof Lip Creme in 40s Red – FULL SIZE! Value $20

This is a wine-red liquid lipstick with excellent pigment and a matte finish. I was impressed with the staying power, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)

Pixi by Petra Glow Booster in Pink Pearl – 12 ml Value $5?

(I can’t find this product for sale except for being in a set, so I’m estimating on value.)

This is the perfect highlighter for anyone who is a little intimated by highlighters. It gives a subtle, luminous glow – the shimmer is barely there. And it’s super easy to blend, so you could also mix this with a liquid foundation to get a dewy finish.

It’s hard to see, but here it is swatched beneath the liquid lipstick and the eyeshadow:

Murad Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – 10 ml Value $12.23

This sunscreen absorbs so quickly, has a light citrus scent, and it also has the benefits of a moisturizer. I’m a fan! (FYI – if you have oily skin this might not be the best SPF for you.)

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray – 5 ml Value $2

This is a spray for your pillow and sheets and designed to help you fall asleep. It’s made with Lavender and Chamomile and smells dreamy! 

Filorga Time-Filler Absolute Wrinkles Correction Cream – 7 ml Value $10.68

This cream is paraben and phthalate free and designed to help plump and hydrate skin, and diminish the look of wrinkles. I didn’t see any immediate results in terms of wrinkles, but loved this for hydrating my skin.

And this box includes the latest issue of  Elle UK Magazine:

Value $5

I love getting this mini mag with the box – it’s a fun extra, and the size is great for throwing in your purse, too.

The Verdict: This month’s box has a value of about $72.91 (not counting the magazine). I think that’s great for a $19 beauty box shipped from overseas! (And you can get the $16 a box annual price without having to pay the full amount up front, too.)

Two full size makeup items (possibly three if the Pixi item is full-size), and two quality skincare products makes this box a win for me.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, as of today 11/13, the November box is still available as your first box. (The site will let you know if the box is sold out or not.)

Coupon – No coupons at this time.

Value Breakdown: At $19 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Eyeshadow: $5.99
  • Liquid Lipstick: $5.21
  • Pixi: $1.30
  • Murad: $3.19

  1. I am really happy with this box. Received the eyeshadow in Golden Fudge, which looks really dark and bronze in the package but goes on light and layerable. The lipstick came in Nude, which is kind of mauve but works for me. Definitely not a nude for me but I like the color, and it stays for a few hours. I was able to put balm on top without screwing it up, too.

  2. After another disappointing box, I’m going to have to cancel when my sub is up. These boxes have really gone downhill in the last few months. Nothing here looks interesting, these are all things we’ve already sampled here or from other subs, or are junk like blue eyeshadow. Over it.

  3. Loved this months box! I got the eyeshadow in a beautiful brown color it’s called golden fudge, it’s lovely! I also received the lipgloss in a rosy nude color called incognito.

    • I did too! Totally loved. For once I think I got a better box than msa.

  4. Wow! Looks like a great box!!

  5. Hello ladies,
    I received the eyeshadow in bleached jeans (light blue with a unicorny pink mixed in).
    I have blue eyes, how should I wear this?
    I think the last time I tried blue eyeshadow I was 12.

    • Do your mascara first. Then use a primer. Don’t wear it up too high (past lid crease) color entire lid up to crease, after crease do skin tone color above til you get to your eyebrow. Always anchor it with well done, smooth eyeliner as last step. In that case coffee brown (it’ll look black but not too harsh, whereas true black will look too harsh or contrasting with such a light shade) or possibly navy blue. Don’t over think it, it’s makeup, have fun. As long as you don’t do it sloppy you’re good to go. 😊

      • Thank you!
        I always thought blue shadow with blue eyes was a fashion faux pas like white after labor day but the mix of multiple colors in this shadow make it too good to not give it a shot.

        • It really depends on the shade and quality of the blue shadow when you’re using it for blue eyes or it can look garish. However, it can look really cute just on the lid (as the above poster said) or along the lower lash line.

  6. That eyeshadow pot is gorgeous!! I don’t wear blue eyeshadow, but the shade is pretty, too.

  7. My shadow was in Pearly Mist. I guess it’s a gray green color. I really liked it on and applied nicely with little fallout and was fairly long wearing. I think my lip color was Incognito. Pretty neutral but I liked how it wore. I drink a lot of coffee so I’m hard on lip color. I didn’t have the center fade until I ate lunch.

    So far I’m liking the eye cream so I’m hoping it helps the wrinkles. Passing the Murad on as I’ve tried and I’m Meh on that one.

    I’ve also received the pillow spray in the past and I enjoy it. I find the scent relaxing.

    • I googled that eye shadow color, it too is quite pretty.

  8. Wow, I love that eye shadow pot, tempted to get this month’s box just for that.

  9. So tempting! I like everything in this box.

  10. There were color variations in the shadow and lip gloss. Also, the Filorga Time-Filler Absolute Wrinkles Cream is actually an eye cream safe for lids and lashes, also.

    • Oh really? If I order that box I really would want to get that eyeshadow color, teals works really well for me.

      • Yes. I received a denim color… It’s a very wearable light blue. The lip color I received is a rosy nude. 🙂

        • Man… I think I’m going to have to splurge for this box, at least as a one of. I did google all the eye shadow colors and they’re all very pretty. Thanx. 🙂
