SO many products!
Smith & Cult Nail Lacquer – FULL SIZE! Value $18
I received the shade Honey Hush – but there may be variation in what everyone receives.
Good to know – you can remove the metal decorative cap if you want to have a better hold when applying the polish!
I’m pretty much obsessed with this color! Yes to all things greige! It took three coats to get full coverage, but it was worth it. The glossy creme finish is fantastic, and this formula looked good throughout the week – no chipping!
It’s a 10 Potion 10 Miracle Instant Repair Leave-In – FULL SIZE! Value $24
I discovered It’s a 10 products through New Beauty Test Tube a few years ago, and I was immediately a fan! The formulas add softness, shine, and it helps with frizz, too. Plus they all smell great! I think this is a great everyday hair product to spray on damp hair. It will improve the look of your hair and it doesn’t leave your hair feeling like you have product in it!
Mally Beauty Perfect Prep Under Eye Brightener – FULL SIZE! Value $35
A Mally product that isn’t an eyeliner! Yes! Plus, I am always looking for better ways to cover my under eye circles, so I was excited to try this.
The color is yellow, and that works well against the bluish tone of my under eye area. It’s a thin formula, but you can layer it on more if you like. I applied a thin layer and could immediately see that my dark circles were less pronounced. I followed with my full-coverage foundation, and I was very happy with the results, even without a concealer!
But, if you are looking for the ultimate coverage concealer, we have that in this box, too!
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye – Travel Size (.11 oz) in Neutral Medium Value $10
This is my favorite under eye concealer for FULL coverage. It’s pretty easy to blend out, too. The finish is somewhat shiny, though, so definitely make sure to finish with a powder to eliminate shine.
AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 30+ – .17 oz in 104 Light/Medium Value $9.70
Unlike some samples of this type of cushion foundation I’ve received in subscription boxes, this is a full working sample:
If you aren’t familiar with this type of foundation, the sponge is soaked with the foundation, and you use the applicator pad to apply it to your face. The benefit of this type of foundation is that with the coverage and application style, it really looks like you aren’t wearing any makeup. Of course, that means this isn’t a full-coverage foundation, but the results are still impressive!
(I’ve swatched this in a photo below.)
glo Minerals Suede Matte Crayon in Trademark – FULL SIZE Value $16
When you include a sharpener in the cap of a lip crayon, you are off to a good start in my book! And even better – the formula is great, too!
The biggest issue I have with some matte finish lip products is that they can be very drying. This one is not, though. The pigment and color are great, too. Here it is swatched with previous makeup items:
In order: Lip crayon, Mally Undereye, It Cosmetics Concealer, Foundation.
Moroccanoil Treatment – 25 ml Value $15
This is a classic hair oil! It smells lovely, adds softness and shine, and doesn’t weigh down hair. Plus a little goes a long way, so this tiny bottle will last me weeks or even months!
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo – FULL SIZE! Value $22
Living Proof is one of my all-time favorite hair brands. Their formulas work so well, smell so good, and are free of anything you might want to avoid in ingredients. And the gray and white packaging looks great on a vanity, too!
My one caution with this dry shampoo is that it goes on white and not clear, so if you over spray it in one area, you’re going to have to brush it out!
NeoCell Biotin Bursts in Brazilian Acai Berry – FULL SIZE! Value $15
I’ve sampled both these and the Collagen chews thanks to New Beauty test tube, and I LOVE them! It’s my way of getting my sugar/sweet fix every day and being able to justify it as good for me! Plus I could actually tell a difference in my skin, hair and nails after using both of these for a month.
TanTowel Self-Tan Towelettes for Face & Body – 5 Towelettes Value $27 (for Fair to Medium Skin Tone)
I’ve sampled these before, and out of all the self-tanners I’ve tried, they come out somewhere in the middle. For my skintone, so far my favorite self tanner has been from tarte.
This go in the swap/share/donation pile.
Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste – FULL SIZE! Value $21
This is another subscription box staple I’m always happy to receive! I wouldn’t anywhere near $20 for a toothpaste, but I’m more than happy to get a $21 toothpaste at a discount! This one works well, but I can’t say I’ve noticed any significant whitening changes. But maybe this is more about keeping coffee/tea stains from creeping in!
Drybar Triple Sec – 1.6 oz Value $13
I was a little surprised to see two dry shampoos in this box, but this one is supposed to work as a volumizer and texturizer as well. And it goes on clear, so it’s already a little different!
I tried it out, and I’m impressed with the texture and volume it provides. It also is pretty scented – fortunately, I like the sweet perfumey scent, so that works!
Revision Skincare Nectifirm – FULL SIZE! Value $68
I love getting full-size skincare products in boxes! (Especially when they are pricey.) It gives me enough time to fully test out the product and see if there are any results.
This neck cream is designed to hydrate and firm your neck and décolletage. I found the cream to be rich, but it still absorbed quickly.
Tata Harper Moisturizing Mask – 7.5 ml Value $17.25
This is a gentle mask you apply and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, or you can wear it overnight as well. I tried out the 15-minute approach and it did exactly what I hoped – left my skin feeling super moisturized and hydrated. I’d say this sample has enough for about 5 uses.
COOLA SPF 30 Organic Makeup Setting Spray – 10 ml Value $7.20
I’ve sampled this before and it’s another product I really like. It gives you a matte finish, protects your makeup and also provides SPF.
dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion Pore Perfecting Exfoliator – .25 oz Value $7.25
Not to be the pessimist, but this sample is pretty much empty. It did have enough for me to try one face application. You apply to damp skin, massage for 1 minute, then let rest for 1-2 minutes before removing.
I didn’t notice any difference in the size appearance of my pores, but my skin has never felt cleaner!
Bio-Oil – .5 oz Value $1.50
This is a lightweight oil designed to help with stretch marks, discoloration, and scars. I like the feel of the formula, and it amazingly gets good reviews when it comes to stretch marks, too!
Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser – 1 oz Value $6
This gel cleanser is gentle, paraben-free, synthetic-fragrance free, and it has a soothing menthol scent, too!
GrandeLIPS-Hydrating Lip Plumper – FULL SIZE! Value $27
This formula is gluten and paraben free, and it is supposed to help plump lips. It gives a good amount of gloss with no stickiness – so at least it passes my lip gloss test! The formula tingles a little bit, but isn’t too annoying. I haven’t noticed any major plumping differences, but I rarely do with this type of product!
Verdict: Wow! That was a lot of products! This box has a value of about $360! That is insane for $50! Plus SO many great brands! I will use everything but the TanTowels, so I’m floored by the value. Now I just want New Beauty to do more of these boxes!
