Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Box

The Vegan Cuts Beauty Box is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box.  All of their products are vegan (and they tend to be natural, too).  They also typically include a nice mix of full size and sample beauty items.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Items

Vegan Cuts sends a single package to subscribers who get both the beauty and snack boxes.  The beauty items are separated into a little bag.  (If you do not get the snack box, I don’t think you get the little bag.)

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Subscription Box: Vegan Cuts Beauty Box

The Cost: $19.95

The Products: Each box contains a mix of 4-7 full and sample size cruelty-free beauty must-haves, ranging from unique cosmetics to luxurious skincare.  All items are void of icky, toxic ingredients and animal byproducts, so you can feel beautiful inside and out.

Ships to: US for free, Canada for $8, and worldwide for $15.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Card

Each Vegan Cuts Beauty Box comes with an information card detailing the items for that month.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Bath Salts

Pura Botanica Botanic Bath Infusion Rose Retreat bath salts (full size!) – Value $10

I love spa stuff and try to take a bath to relax at least once a week.  I love that this is free of synthetic fragrances and dyes.  The other cool thing is that it comes in a sachet like a tea bag, so all the salts can dissolve but so the flower petals can’t escape and get stuck in the plumbing.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Eyecream

Athar’a Moroccan Coffee eye cream (size unknown) – Value $12 (?)

This looks huge in the photo but it’s a deluxe sample.  Although some MSA readers reported problems with theirs coming open or looking dried out, mine was OK.  I tried it once and it absorbed fairly well, but this is the kind of thing I’ll have to use for awhile to see results.  Luckily there is enough in the jar for me to do that!  I am guessing this is about 0.25 ounces but that is really just eyeballing it so I could be off.  Still, it’s a generous amount.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Color

Pacifica Devoclean Lipstick in “XOX” (full size!) – Value $14

Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques natural eyeshadow in “morning dew”  – Value $10?

I just realized I should’ve taken a photo with the lipstick cap off.  Well, at least I remembered to swatch it so you can see that below.  This has a subtle color that’s just a little redder than my natural lip color and it’s buildable for a little more intensity.  I do find myself applying it often, however.

This eyeshadow is a pretty bold color for me!  Sadly, although it was packaged well, mine arrived broken (see below).  I couldn’t find single eyeshadows available on the Lauren Brooke site so I linked to some pressed eyeshadow duos up above and estimated the value.

Luckily, most of it remained inside the clamshell package so I think I’ll be able to re-press it.  (Basically just spray with rubbing alcohol, then wrap a Kleenex around something about the same size as the eyeshadow pan and press down hard.  Then let it dry.)

Here are swatches of the lipstick and eyeshadow.  That’s the color I got with two swipes of the lipstick.

Vegan Cuts Beauty Box Subscription Review – May 2015 Coupons

The box also came with a coupon for Athar’a and some more information on the pressed eyeshadows.

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $46 for this month’s Vegan Cuts Beauty Box.  Granted, some of the sizes/values were estimates.  Even so, I figure you’re getting about double your money’s worth, which I think is pretty good, since natural and vegan cosmetics are often more expensive.  I will have to work myself up to using the eyeshadow (I tend to stick to neutrals) but I am using or will use everything else.  I like the mix of skincare, color cosmetics, and bath/body items, as well.

Ragan stumbled across My Subscription Addiction in late 2013 and immediately subscribed to way too many beauty boxes. She’s now focused on boxes for her cats and dog, vegan/vegetarian food boxes, and craft subscriptions (and she didn’t give up beauty boxes entirely).

    • Is it the same size? I will admit I had trouble figuring out size the container was that I got because it wasn’t listed anywhere. I estimated it at about half the full size container, hence the price difference.

      • Ah! Yes it’s full size! The card says full size, $25.

      • It’s actually in the photo you posted 🙂

        • Oh yes, and in their spoiler video, they stated it would be full size 🙂

          • Thanks for the clarification. I admit to being overly skeptical when I wrote the review because some box companies list the FS price for every item but then actually give a mix of FS and samples or mostly samples (cough, cough, Birchbox).

            I don’t watch online videos (spoilers, news, etc.) pretty much ever because I hate spending 5 minutes on a video when I can read the same information in 30 seconds. Also I’m not allowed to watch videos at work (bandwidth issues) and I never remember by the time I get home. So I just didn’t see that one.

          • I don’t usually watch the videos either, but I had just cancelled this box because I have way too much stuff right now…..and I just wanted to see what I was going to miss 😉

  1. You are so lucky! I cancelled after 6 months since I never got colours that I would actually use. And I use almost anything! But I just kept getting purple lipstick and blue eyeshadow…

    • This was actually the first time I’ve received this box. But yeah, I was happy with it. I would wear purple lipstick, though!

  2. This my first sub box with Vegan Cuts. I’ve bought one time boxes from them a few (OK, more than a few) times. I’m happy with my first box. I received Moments in Mint bath salts which I gave to my sister because it was her birthday. I also gave her the eyeshadow which I won’t use. I love the scent of the coffee cream. I don’t remember which Pacifica I received. It looked great on me. I placed it with my other Pacifica lipsticks.

  3. Thanks for the tip how to fix crushed shadow. Mine came in perfect condition but im sure i will need this info in the future. I like my neutrals as well, but this color is so pretty on the inner to middle part of my lid closest to lashes. Its a lovely accent
    I really like the eyecream. I think it should last me a good while. This was a good box for me.
    And i received a peachy color lip stick. I like it but the staying power isn’t really there for me.

  4. Thanks for review and how to on fixing shattered makeup.

  5. I like everything in this box. This is one of my favorite boxes. I just gifted a 6-month subscription as a birthday gift to my (now) 24-year-old daughter, as she’s really into natural make-up. I hope she enjoys it as much as I do.

  6. I’ve been using the coffee eye cream since it got here and I’m loving it! Only took me about 3-4 days to start seeing some subtle difference, which is a win in my book. I really wish they’d have sent out some other bath salts besides the rose… don’t know what it is about rose and lavender that give me a headache. The lipstick was rather dry looking to me and the eyeshadow was way off my radar, though I tend to only use eyeliner and a highlighter anyway.

    • The rose scent decreases when it’s actually in the bath (maybe it gets diluted). I probably would’ve been happy with about any scent, though. (On the other hand, I don’t like the smell of coffee. But it doesn’t bother me too much in the eye cream so I will keep using it.)

      The lipstick was moisturizing although not super long-lasting.
