Blush Mystery Beauty Box Subscription Review – July 2014
Blush Mystery Beauty Box is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box from Blush.com. I’ve been very impressed with this subscription in general because of the value (usually over $100), the brands (typically at least a few high-end lines), and the size of the items (everything is usually full sized or deluxe sized). Lately it seems like they are going for less items, but more full-size items, which is fine with me!
The Subscription 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.
Ships to: US
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Lip Gloss Gleaming Temptations in Two Rich Lovers – FULL SIZE! Value $23
Cattiva Cosmetics Waterproof Automatic Lip Pencil in Dolce Diva – FULL SIZE! Value $20
I think these colors compliment each other really well. I really love the shade of the lip pencil – it is the perfect nude lip color for my skin tone. It isn’t a very creamy or moisturizing lip pencil though. The lipgloss is a very shiny gloss with metallic undertones – if you are going for a natural look I recommend using it sparingly!
This SmartEye Wrinkle Lift cream is supposed to tighten up your under eye skin and remove wrinkles, puffiness, etc. in 60 seconds. With that kind of claim I had to try it immediately. First I should point out that it’s a tinted cream, so I was surprised to find it in this box, since it seems like it couldn’t work for all skin tones. I gave it a try and within 20 seconds I could feel the tightening under my eyes. I could notice a slight difference in appearance too, but I’m not sure it’s worth it for me since I’m not a big fan of the tightening feeling. Also, it has a very drying finish, which didn’t work great with my under eye concealer.
I haven’t tried the Alpha Beta Daily Face Peel yet, but it gets amazing reviews on Sephora, so I’m excited to try it!
Julien Farel Haircare Zero Frizz Restore – FULL SIZE! Value $33
The instructions on how to use this haircare product are a little different than what I’m used to (check out the instructional video), but it gets really good reviews so I’m going to give it a try!
This hand cream is already a win for me – it’s moisturizing and absorbs super quickly.
Verdict: I paid $25 for this box and received over $100 worth of items. I’m happy with all the products I’ve tried so far (maybe not the EyeLift though), and I will like the box even more if the Julien Farel and Dr. Dennis Gross products are hits! What do you think of the July Blush Mystery Beauty Box?
