Each Beauty Box 5 comes with a description card. This month’s theme is The Kiss Kit!


Now, onto the items!


TINT Beauty Unicorn Lippie in Fairytale – FULL SIZE! Value $9


This liquid lipstick has a matte (but not drying) finish, and the color works well for me, too. It has excellent pigment and decent staying power, too.

TINT Beauty Unicorn Liner in Fairy Tale – FULL SIZE! Value $7


This liner is designed to be paired with the liquid lipstick. I love that Beauty Box 5 included a lip kit set for this box, but personally, I would have preferred if these two shades matched.

Style Essentials Lip Glow in Petal – Value $4


This lip crayon goes on sheer and gives just a hint of shimmer and shine. And it has a great fruity flavor!

So Susan Colour Hybrid – FULL SIZE! Value $17.50

You can use this as a lip or cheek stain.

Warning #1 – a little goes a LONG WAY.

Warning #2: Make sure to blend quickly before this sets!

The good news about those warnings is that this stain has great staying power (I used it as a cheek stain), and you’ll have it forever since you only need the teeniest amount to get the color coverage you want!

Here it is swatched below the liquid lipstick, lip liner, and sheer lip crayon:

Jean Pierre Cosmetics Moisturizing Lip Mask – Value $1


This is the one item that just wasn’t a hit for me. It isn’t a bad product, I just don’t like lip masks – they feel really weird to me, and it’s weird not being able to talk while you’re wearing them!

Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a value of about $38.50! I think that’s great for a $12 box! I’m continually impressed with Beauty Box 5, and I think it’s a great beauty box if you are looking for value and are OK with getting a mix of drugstore and more high-end brands.

What do you think about the February Beauty Box 5? Did you like this month’s lip-themed box?

FYI – If you sign up for a Beauty Box 5 subscription by the 21st of February, the February box will be your first box!

  1. My Tint lip liner and liquid lipstick were in the shade Make Believe and they are exactly the same color.

  2. I want that liquid lipstick! Swap anyone?

  3. I loved this month but I’m a lip junkie lol. And omg! I love love the smell of stlye essentials. I also love that it’s simple and good for a hot summer to come when my lips will be dry from our unrelenting summers. I’m buying the other shades and a few for my teen daughter 😊 This is my second month and so far I’ve been very happy but I do give my daughter whatever I don’t like or isn’t good for my skin type.

  4. Does anyone know if Tint Beauty is cruelty free? I can’t find any info!

  5. I was a little disappointed that the box is all lip products this month, until I saw they also included the Marsk Mineral Eye Shadow in my box. I really have no idea why, just a mistake, I guess, since I’ve had my sub for almost a year. I’m happy to have it, although I hope someone else isn’t missing theirs.

  6. Dang, I love that pink Fairy Tale lip liner… but I got the liner and liquid lipstick both in Make Believe, medium range nude tones that I won’t use because I don’t care for nudes. My So Susan is Marsala, which I assume is the deep red shade Liz got? Iffy for me, but I’ll think about it before opening the seal. My balm/tint is blush, so I will use it, and I’ve been wanting to try a lip mask, so I’m cool with that.

    I’m really glad I started swapping, and also glad I’m only paying $7 for BB5 boxes. Sometimes I get pretty disappointed at what a get, then I remember and tell myself “Chill, it’s only seven / ten bucks!” since almost all my boxes are in that range. I do really love getting packages in the mail. I like reading the spoilers and reviews, and often, when my box arrives a few days later, I’ve already forgotten what half the products are, so I get surprised all over again!

    • Yeah, but $10 gone when you can’t use ANYthing is a loss.

      Glad for people who liked it or at least got their sub price worth.

  7. I always think I’m going to discontinue BB5, but then I get their box and I’m HAPPY!

    I got the color Make Believe in the Tint lippie and pencil & it’s a good shade I’ll wear.

    But HOLY COW! That So Susan product is intense! Way too much shot out and I put it everywhere-lips, cheeks, eyes…and it really stains big time. I like it tho- there are days when I can’t reapply any makeup except lip gloss, and this will last for hours.

    The Lip Glow is a little strange. Doesn’t seem to do anything- but this will be the first time I’ve tried a lip mask so I’m excited.

    Great overall box!

    • Same here. I always think I’m through with BB5 due to the late shipping times and I always think Im going to be let down but they always manage to surprise me. Not that I dont have enough lip products but i always love getting more and all of these fit my complection nicely. As for the glow stick I dont see much of a difference either but perhaps it’s a placebo affect because shortly after it does seem to have a nice shimmer and makes my lips pop.

  8. I got the color Maiden for the lip tint and the lip liner. They match perfectly. They are a nude browny mauve with a hint of peach. I got the color Rose for the lip glow. It is a very light creamy pinky rose color. I love everything I got as usual.

  9. I actually loved this box. I love lip products so this box was a huge hit for me

  10. Mine should be here tomorrow, and now I’m not excited anymore. I hope it doesn’t mean that one day they’ll decide to send a box that’s all hair items. Just seems like a fail to me. Let’s not make a habit of the all-one-type box, please, BB5.

  11. I usually really like BB5, and there is always something I can use. However, the only thing I ever use on my lips is lip balm (sometimes tinted), so to have a box that is all about lips was a huge miss for me. Even the lip “balm” in here is not really a balm since I got a baby-pink one. I think it was a mistake to do a box with only one type of item in it.

    I got the color “forever after” in both the gloss and liner if anyone wants to swap. Free liner with gloss swap. 🙂

    • I agree. I have been thinking of re-subscribing to BB5 but this box makes it much easier to pass. I don’t use lip products either. This would have been a total miss for me. It seems like a poor decision to have a whole lip box.

  12. This is the best BB5 I’ve received, and I have been a subscriber for about a year. This sub really underwhelmed me, but this month is awesome. If the next 2 boxes are this good, I might resubscribe again.

  13. I got the color make believe by tint and pearl in the lip glow product

    • Do you have any idea how the colors are chosen for each person? Or is it totally random? 😛

      • I left a comment on Instagram. I said I wanted the color make believe. Maybe thats why or I just got lucky.

  14. Hello! I just subscribed using your link! How will I know if I am receiving the bonus Marsk mineral eyeshadow? Thanks!

    • It won’t show up on your order receipt, but if you used the link, it will be in your first box. (We haven’t had anyone report issues of not receiving it.)

      If you want to verify, though, you can contact Beauty Box 5 to confirm the eyeshadow will be in your box:

      Hope that helps!

      • Thank you! 🙂

  15. Oh glad I got a different lip color set. Mine is maiden and it’s a matte nude color. My liner actually does match. There’s no way I can pull off that cheek/lip stain. It’s way too bright. Thanks for the review so I saved myself the heartache and instead I can just swap.

    • Glad the swatches helped! I used a good amount of the So Susan for the swatch the really show the color, but I was able to blend it out to a wearable cheek stain if that helps!

  16. Nice box!
    Contemplating subscribing, but I already have ipsy,bb,sephora,boxy,julep, and allure. This might just put me in the addict box.
    BTW, may want to update the annual cost to $109.

    • Thanks for letting me know about the change of the annual price. Just updated the post!

  17. This is the best BB5 I’ve seen!

    • Yay!! 🙂
