Blush Mystery Beauty Box October 2013 Review

Blush Mystery Beauty Box is a newer beauty subscription box that launched in 2013. It’s also one of my new favorite subscriptions – I think every month the boxes just keep getting better and better!

The Box: Blush Mystery Beauty Box 

The Cost: $24.95 a month (or $34.95 for a one time purchase)

The Products: Over $100 of beauty products.

Check out all my Blush Mystery Beauty Box reviews and the Beauty Subscription Box Directory!

Blush Mystery Beauty Box October 2013 Review

This month’s featured curator is Kimberly Klotz-Kolodziejski, the co-founder of Chella Skincare. And that means every box gets a Chella highlighter pencil in Ivory Lace!

(The flip side of the card details the other products included in box this month).

Blush Mystery Beauty Box October 2013 Review

butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Kerfuffle – FULL SIZE! Value $15

Chella Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace – FULL SIZE! Value $18

These two items alone make this box worth it for me! I use my Chella highlighter that I got from Ipsy all the time, so I’m thrilled to have a spare, and this butter London pale pink creme shade is perfect for me!

Blush Mystery Beauty Box October 2013 Review

Mirabella Mineral Highlighting Powder in Latte Swirl – FULL SIZE! Value $38

This is one of those compacts that is almost too pretty to use! But I’ll get over that – I love the color and shimmer of this blush!

Blush Mystery Beauty Box October 2013 Review

Karin Herzog Vitamin H Rich Nourishing Day Cream – .1 oz Value $3.65

Miracle Skin Transformer Face SPF 20 in Medium – .17 oz Value $4.80

MyFace Cosmetics Lip Pop Gloss in Hot Stuff – FULL SIZE! Value $18

I really like the Miracle Skin products, but unfortunately this medium color is a little too dark for my skin tone right now. I think I’ll save this for summer since it is good until 2015!

Blush Mystery Beauty Box October 2013 Review

Theraplex FT Exfoliating Ointment – FULL SIZE! Value $15

Talika Lipocils Expert – 2 ml Value $11.40

This exfoliating ointment is a great item to include with winter coming – and I love that it is paraben-free, and smells of peppermint!

Verdict: I think this may be my favorite Blush Mystery Beauty Box yet! (I even like that they switched up the material on the bag itself!). I think I’ll use just about everything included this month, plus I love that there were 5 full size products! The value for October is great too – I paid $24.95 for this box and received over $120 worth of items!

What did you think of the October Blush Mystery Beauty Box? (FYI – This box is still available for purchase!)

  1. I received my goodies today. Loved everything except for the Talika Lipocils. Its missing the mascara brush. Its not usable without it. The only thing I can suggest it to buy a mascara applicator or go to your local department store and ask a makeup counter to give u a disposable applicator. Any other suggestions? :0)

  2. Thank to you I ended up signing up for this one and I LOVED MY FIRST BOX!!!! I got the same exact bag as you and am SUPER excited about trying everything!!!

  3. Loved this box! Got Shimmer Rose in my Mirabella blush box. Love it! Ad just my color! Love the Lip Pop and the Butter Nail Polish is to die for! I also am missing the brush part of the Lipocils. . . .guess we got the rejects! LOL. Hopefully they will send us a good one or is that to much to ask for???? Besides that I loved it all and glad I signed up for this box as last months was my 1st and didn’t make to great impression on me!!! Thanks Liz for having this site! Much appreciated! Nancy. : )

  4. I wish I’d received the Rose Shimmer blush instead of the peachy color I did get. I emailed Blush about maybe doing a quick color survey for subscribers, but they responded basically ‘meh’.

  5. Both this and my Birchbox came today!! Never been happier <3

    Mirabella Highlight was in Rose Shimmer (so beautiful!)

    myface Lip Pop in Sweetest Thing (surprisingly sheer compared to the Pop Beauty Aqua Lacquer gloss I got in my BB — yay options!!)

    (also, my Talika didn't have the mascara wand either…*shrug*)

  6. That’s interesting to hear that sales tax is now being charged…. I’d read somewhere a month or so ago that it was Target that actually bought the 3 group (Blush, Dermstore & Hair envy)…… Hoping for continued great bags!

    So glad to hear that others were as confused as I was over the lash product applicator…. I thought I had lost my mind!

  7. After reading your Blush box reviews, I definitely need to subscribe!

  8. I absolutely loved this month!! 🙂

    They keep surprising me and improving the bag every month.
    I was so happy with all of it, I’m only gifting the blush, I have too many of them already 🙂

    • Oh and look up on the Chella website how to use the highlighter, it’s really need to see how they use it, it’s a multi-tasker!

  9. I got the highlighter in “Rose Shimmer” and the lip gloss in “Lip Pop”. Was your lash product missing the mascara wand part? When I pulled the wand out of the tube all it had was a doe applicator without the brush, lol.

    • Oops, my Lip Pop shade was #235, “maneater”.

    • Mine too! I thought I just had read it wrong, perhaps its not correct? haha

    • Mine was like that to. I was wondering the same thing.

  10. I AM SO EXCITED about this month’s box! I love everything in it and I’m so happy I joined…every box has been amazing.
    I also noticed that I was charged $26.95 this month instead of the typical $24.95…still a great deal, though!!!

  11. LOVE! This box remains the highlight of my month – this one and GlossyBox. I almost always end up using everything in my Blush boxes. I’ve discovered so many cool products thanks to them. I also LOVE the discounts they offer on Favorites on their website. I always end up ordering some of this stuff when I run out.

  12. I noticed that I was charged $1.50 tax this month, for the first time. I called Blush and was told that they’ve been taken over by a big conglomerate and now most of us will be paying tax. Still absolutely fabulous value though!

  13. This is such a great bag! I should be getting mine tomorrow and now I’m even more excited!

  14. Gah! Why did I cancel this box last month??? So depressing!

    • You can still get this month box.
