Blush Mystery Beauty Box Review – May 2013 – Makeup Subscription

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


I was impressed with the April Blush Mystery Beauty Box, but this May box is simply awesome. They have really upped their game! First, I love that it now comes in a branded bag. Also, it now comes with a card showing every beauty product in the box and why it was selected:


I think this means the boxes are getting a little less random, and definitely more curated. I’m thrilled with these changes!

Bauble Bar Bracelet – Value $15

This also came with a unique coupon code for $15 off a Bauble Bar purchase. Their prices start at $18 and they have free shipping, so it’s actually a pretty good coupon!

Cailyn Cosmetics Line-FX Gel Eyeline in Fall Night – FULL SIZE! Value $21

At first I didn’t pay too much attention to this item, but when I finally picked it up to inspect the package, I was super impressed! This eyeliner is smudge-proof, water-resistant, safe for sensitive skin, and free of parabens, sulfates, and artificial fragrances. And it’s cruelty-free too! Also, I love that they include instructions on how to draw the perfect eyeline – I definitely need help there!


Skylark Wild & Free Mini Nail Lacquer Set – Value $29

I absolutely love nail polish minis, and these colors are all perfect for summer. They are also DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde Free!

Verdict: I paid $24.95 for this box and received over $100 worth of high-quality beauty products and one cute bracelet. I couldn’t be happier with this box! I really hope the team at Blush Mystery Beauty Box continues this curated trend – I think it will definitely become one of the best beauty subscription boxes. What did you think if the May Box? (FYI – if you haven’t signed up yet, you can still get this box!)

  1. I am now a massive fan of Cailyn liners. And for once I got sent an eyeliner that ISN’T black! I swear, I have black liner coming out of my ears….

  2. I didn’t get the bracelet, the eyeliner or the hair conditioner. I was disappointed… They sent me hand cream and this weird gel infused foot scrub instead. Not sure if it was because I had just signed up for the May box, but hopefully next months for me will be better.

  3. I did not get a bracelet

  4. This is a great box!! I really like all the products. I was disappointed with my braclet, however. I can not get it on 🙁 and I don’t have huge hands. I will find a younger person to share it with. These mystery boxes are so fun!!

  5. I got the exact same box as you (even the bracelet)! My first blush box was Aprils (and I was impressed by that) but like you said, I love where this box is going. I really hope they keep up the work because I signed up for a monthly subscription this time around!

    I love love love that the gel eyeliner comes with a brush! 🙂 I’ll never lose my brush !

  6. It is a GREAT box this month! I wish I had received the $15 off code for Baublebar–mine was for 20% off. LOVE THE POLISHES!!

  7. I actually thought I cancelled my subscription to Blush, but to my surprise I didn’t and sooo glad. I really liked
    this months items. I was really excited about the sample of the cellu Destock. My biggest surprise was the bracelet. I do not normally get excited about jewelry, because it isn’t my style or I just won’t wear it. I love my bracelet! I have worn it everyday since receiving my box. I have a small wrist and the adjustable chain is fabulous. Mine is different than the one you received. It is gold bracelet chain with diamond look gems on a circle. I only use pencil eyeliner but I will try and then probably give to my daughter. I have never used the Nick Chavez conditioner, but interested. Oh, I did use the BB cream/primer this morning and I really liked. All in all I will try everything and possibly purchase the full-size products.

  8. I just got my first blush box today. I got the exact same things you got. I was bummed about the condition because I have thick hair and the last thing I need is more volume. 🙁 I wish it was a more versatile hair product. My sister wants it so it won’t go to waste. I’m wearing the gel liner now, and I love it. My nail polishes busted while they were being shipped, but I called blush and they are sending me a new mini set on Monday. I’m happy with that customer service!

  9. LOVED this box so much I sent customer service an email telling them how much I loved it! My eyeliner was brown – your color looks REALLY PRETTY! I’m just happy I didn’t get yet another black version. 🙂

  10. I love that bracelet and those are some impressive goodies! This just might be my next subscription.

  11. I started with them a few months ago and have been impressed every time and the amount and size of products. I have fazed out almost all of my sub boxes now, due to lack of sustained quality, but kept this and consious box. It is one box that you get where you constantly do not receive black pencil liners and small mascaras.

  12. What a great bag! I just received mine and I will use everything! Lovely round sparkly Baublebar bracelet too!

  13. Oh, This is a great box! Love it.
