Bauble Bar Monthly Makeover Box Review - August 2013

The Bauble Bar Monthly Makeover box is one of my newest monthly box discoveries. It’s a little different than a typical subscription: each month Bauble Bar releases a new Monthly Makeover box for a limited time. You get to pick out the main jewelry piece color, and everything else is a surprise!

The Box: The Bauble Bar August Mysteryy Makeover

The Cost: $44 with free shipping

The Products: Each box will include the pictured Bezel Strand (Retail: $38) and for an extra $6 get a package full of goodies, including TWO extra BaubleBar pieces to build a look (plus keep your eyes peeled for a super fun surprise from our team). The full selection can have a retail value of up to $75!

Purple Bijou Gem Strand – Value $38

This was the featured item in the box this month. They had lots of different colors available, and I decided to go with this purple since the deep jewel-tone is perfect for fall and holiday parties! Now on to the mystery pieces:

Buckle Bangle – Value $28

This is actually a working buckle!  I’m not a big bangle person though, so I’ll be passing along this piece to someone who can get a lot of use out of it!

Purple Earrings – Value $24

I like how these go with the necklace without being a perfect match.

Put a Bauble On It Notepad – Value $15

This notepad is surprisingly well-made for a bonus item. I will definitely get use out of it, but I hope for September they go back to beauty and/or fashion accessories for the bonus non-jewelry item! (Check out my review of the July Makeover box).

Verdict: I really liked the main necklace they were featuring this month, and since the necklace alone was $38, paying $6 more for two mystery jewelry items and a bonus gift seemed like a no-brainer. I’m definitely happy with the value of this box – and I’ll use everything with the exception of the bangle. Did you sign up for the August Monthly Makeover box? What were your mystery items?

FYI – this box is no longer available, but I will post again when the September edition is live. If you haven’t already, make sure to sign up for the My Subscription Addiction daily newsletter so you don’t miss it!

  1. I love the buckle bracelet. It’s unique and cool looking.

  2. Pass that buckle bracelet along to me, would ya?


  3. How do you find out when the boxes are available? I looked all over their website.

  4. I was too late to get in on the purple necklace, so i skipped it this time and got a rhinestone bib necklace instead! I like the notebook, I think it’s cute!
