Blush Mystery Beauty Box Review – November 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).
FYI – Originally this subscription sent out a lot of makeup, but lately it seems like hair products and skincare products are the most common.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Blush Mystery Beauty Box

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. (They used to have a new curator each month, but it seems like they’ve done away with that).
Jane Iredale Eye Gloss Liquid Eye Shadow in Pink Silk – FULL SIZE! Value $15.50
Laura Geller Cool Lids Silver Sands Cream Eyeshadow – .17 oz Value $12
I busted out the quarter for this Jane Iredale eye shadow assuming it was a sample size – but this is full size! And the gold end is actually an applicator wand. The finish is pretty shiny – and the light pink shade definitely doesn’t work for my skin tone, but I may end up buying this in a more neutral brown shade.
I received this Silver Sands cream eyeshadow in my August Birchbox – and I really like it. It’s a somewhat sheer formula, so you can use it for a lot of looks.
Julien Farel Hydrate Restore – FULL SIZE! Value $33
Lauren B. Beauty Nourishing Hand Creme – FULL SIZE! Value $24
Traditions by Nick Chavez Prickly Pear Restoring Mist – 2 oz Value $6
There was a similar full-size Julien Farel hair product in the August box, so I’m a little surprised to see another one so soon. I haven’t gotten a chance to try either product yet – but let me know if you recommend them!
This Lauren B. Hand Creme is very lightweight and absorbs quickly. Unfortunately I’m not a big fan of the orchid/peony scent though.
And this restoring hair mist is meant to protect hair from heating/styling etc. (You spray it on damp hair). I don’t mind the scent, so I’ll give it a try!
SkinMedica TNS Eye Repair – .07 oz Value $14
NUXE Clarifying Cream-Mask with Rose Petals – .54 oz Value $8.70
Miracle Skin Transformer Face Spotlight – .1 oz Value $3.20
I like NUXE products, so I’m adding this to my collection of masks to try! And I’ve tried both of the Miracle Skin Transformer versions (Spotlight and Original). This product is really good at blending into pores and making them appear smaller, and for that reason I prefer the original over the spotlight – I don’t need to add shimmer to draw attention to my pores! (This would probably work well under a foundation or powder though for a more subtle glow look).
Verdict: When I first opened this bag I wasn’t too impressed – it seemed like a lot of little samples. But with 3 full size products and 3 deluxe-sized products I guess first looks can be deceiving! This box has a value of about $115. I’ll use enough of the products to make the value worth it for me – but something about this month’s bag just doesn’t feel very curated.
