Umbra Prisma Tray – Value $15
To me, this is a perfect non-beauty item in a beauty box. I love all things gold, and the modern design plus the canvas base makes it great for makeup, jewelry, desk organization, etc.
Here it is without the Umbra packaging:
Mally Beauty Eye-Amplifying Shadow Liner in Stone – FULL SIZE! Value $20
I get Mally products a lot in boxes, so I’m not always excited to see them, but they do work really great – and I love their eyeshadow sticks! This stone color is really wearable for me, too. (Swatched below)
stila HUGE™ Extreme Lash Mascara – Travel-size Value (.2 oz) Value $10.45
This mascara is one of my top favorites! (Right up there with tarte!) It provides volume, length, no clumping, and lasted the entire day without smudges, etc.
(Plus it is free of parabens, sulfates and phthalates!)
Laura Geller New York Baked Color True Blush in Catalina – FULL SIZE! Value $28
I love Laura Geller baked blushes! This has a lot of pigment, so be careful when applying! (Swatched below)
Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer – Hi-Speed Sonnet – FULL SIZE! Value $22
Smith & Cult seems to be everywhere lately! I’m a sucker for fancy packaging, and I like their formulas, so that’s fine by me! This lipgloss has a good amount of sheer color and shine, a little shimmer, and almost no stickiness. (Swatched below).
Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist – 15 ml Value $5.30
This is super refreshing, and I appreciate that it is a fine mist! The rose scent is only strong for a few moments, so that works for me, too.
Darphin INTRAL Toner – 50 ml Value $5.40
This toner is designed for sensitive skin. I found it to be gentle and I like the subtle scent too – all good!
NEST Fragrances Grapefruit Votive Candle – .95 oz Value $6.50
This candle is pretty tiny! It’s so cute, though! And the grapefruit scent is strong even without burning it. I probably won’t burn it for a while and use it just for decor/scent!
NEST Fragrances Indigo Eau de Parfum – Travel-size (3 ml) – Value $9.40
This scent is described as having, “notes of Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, and black cardamom are enhanced with hints of wild fig and bergamot.” It remind me of some scent from my middle school/high school years I can’t place – I’m betting something Gap Body!
Here is photo to better show the scale of the candle:
Davines OI / Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion – 50 ml Value $15.50
Davines is one of my favorite brand discoveries from Birchbox, and this hair oil is great! It gets rave reviews on the Birchbox site for being a hair oil that doesn’t make your hair greasy. I tried it on dry hair, and it added shine without weighing my hair down at all. You can also use it on wet hair.
Lollia Relax Shea Butter Handcreme – Travel-size (1.25 oz) Value $7.80
Love the packaging on this handcreme! I found it a little odd that it is one of those tubes that you need to break the foil seal to open, but the cap didn’t have a pointy end. I’m guessing there’s a more elegant solution than stabbing it with my pen, but it worked!
The formula feels great – it absorbs easily, is super moisturizing, and has a floral scent. It’s described as lavender and honey, but it’s not the traditional lavender scent you may be used to from natural lavender products.
And here is the free mystery sample pack I got with my order:
Both good sized samples!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $145. I think that’s great for a $64 box, especially when you combine it with a 20% off coupon or free bonus gift! I absolutely love the tray, and I think this would make a great Mother’s Day gift – I may need to buy another one for my mom!
