Beauteque BB Bag is a monthly Asian beauty subscription box from Beauteque Monthly that offers full-sized makeup, skincare, and body products along with a makeup bag. Each bag claims to have a value that is triple of what you pay. Beauteque Monthly also offers Beauteque Mask Maven (you can read Ragan’s reviews here!)

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-Info-Card-Back

Usually, Beauteque‘s themes are irrelevant to their curation so I wouldn’t give it too much thought. April’s theme is “Soothing Showers.”

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-Bag

April’s makeup bag features a baby blue and cream color block design. It has a thin inner lining and a wider bottom that allows the bag to stand upright.

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-TCFS-Makeup-Remover-Closeup

Too Cool For School Dinoplatz Magic Wand for Lip & Eye Makeup Remover – Value $8

This is a convenient tool that encapsulates makeup remover liquid inside the plastic part of a cotton swab. There are 20 swabs total. They’re very useful for fixing mistakes or removing makeup on the go. Plus, the packaging is so adorable! The swabs take off mascara and eyeliner with ease, and this is especially nice for delicate areas like the eyes. However, sometimes it doesn’t completely remove waterproof or budge proof formulas.

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-APieu-Cream-Closeup

A’Pieu Aqua Nature Dewdrop Clouding Cream 50 ml/1.7 oz. – Value $13.99

Subscribers receive either the Mizon Water Volume Aqua Gel Cream or this one from A’Pieu. Looks are deceiving for this one. The stiff peaks of the cream led me to believe that this was a heavy face cream. In reality, the formula has a soft, mousse-like consistency and melts like water once rubbed into the skin. I suppose that’s why it’s called the Dewdrop Clouding Cream! It has a powdery fragrance that disappears quickly after application. Best of all, it sinks in quickly and leaves skin sufficiently moisturized without any tackiness.

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-APieu-Makeup-Base

A’Pieu Base Maker in #102 20 g/0.7 oz. – Value $5.90

This is a brightening makeup base that hydrates and smooths the skin. When blended into the skin, it imparts a soft diffused glow, but that is a result of the white color and not necessarily because of reflective particles in the formula. Even when I blend in several layers of the makeup base, it doesn’t really color correct or even out my skin tone in any way. Additionally, it feels a tad bit greasy on my skin, and the feeling doesn’t go away. Unfortunately, this is a miss for me.

Here is a swatch of the makeup base.

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-Hair-Essence

Somang M Cerade Professional Texturizing Hair Essence for Damaged Hair 200 ml/6.8 oz. – Value $15

This is a “ceramide-rich, revitalizing hair essence” that is applied to damp hair. It comes in a huge tube that will take me a long time to use up. I think the fragrance is the best part: it smells just like bubble gum! I applied this to the ends of my hair with the hopes of making my damaged ends softer and silkier. While I didn’t see a dramatic difference, I did notice that the ends looked less scraggly and were easier to brush out after blow drying.

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-Etude-House-Lip-Patch

Etude House Honey Jelly Lip Patch – Value $3.30

This hydrogel lip patch contains a blend of honey, propolis, and royal jelly– all amazing ingredients made from bees! The patch smelled and even tasted a little like honey! It adhered well to my skin but it took several attempts. Afterward, it left my lips plump, hydrated, and smooth. I think this would be great to use right before applying matte or liquid lipsticks.

Beauteque-BB-April-2017-Skinfood-Nail-Essence

Skinfood Nail Vita Essence – Value $7.99

Subscribers receive a random nail essence, and mine is from Skinfood, which is one of my favorite K-beauty brands. This nail essence is meant for dehydrated nails and cuticles. The formula is very creamy and smells like candy. It’s easy to apply but takes a while to sink in if you don’t rub it in. My nails and the area around my nails feel softer and more hydrated afterward. It’s sold on Beauteque for $7.99 but I’ve found it elsewhere for as low as $1.03 (not including international shipping).

Verdict: This month’s Beauteque BB Bag gets a hearty thumbs up from me. The total value is around $54, which is close to twice the cost of the box. The only item I dislike is the A’Pieu makeup base, and the rest range from good to really awesome. My favorite discovery is the A’Pieu Aqua Nature Dewdrop Clouding Cream. Plus, I appreciate that the lightweight moisturizer is a thoughtful inclusion in a spring box. This month is definitely one of my favorites from Beauteque.

I’m starting to freak out a little. I ordered April 22nd and money was taken immediately. Another payment was taken May 22, and I have not received anything at all. I have emailed twice and they have not responded so I’m starting to get a little worried??

Em

I didn’t receive my April box until last week. And today I finally received two items they shipped separately. This plus, march where items were shipped separately and brands changed on me I unsubscribed.

Jamie

Has anybody received their bag? I ordered in the middle of April and still have not received anything or any tracking. I bought this, Mask Maven, and So Susan from Crate Joy. I already received 2 months of So Susan but nothing from beauteque. I think ill cancel them two. ugh

jacobson.ashley

They just sent out an email saying they are changing the shipping to the last day of the month. I’m in the same boat as you where I subscribed in the middle of April. I know I won’t be renewing my subscription.

vanessa

I also was worried about my new sub. So I inquired. This is the email I got:

Hi Vanessa,

You subscribed on May 14th which is for May’s shipment. The boxes are currently being prepped. Once shipped you will receive an email with tracking. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out again. Thanks for being a subscriber and have a great day!

vanessa

I’m trying to order on CrateJoy but it won’t let me either remove an incorrect discount code or adjust the number of subs I’m ordering.

Does anyone know how to do this???

So far, no response from either CS by both companies 🙁

Tina Ames

How did you get the April box already,I received an email last week,saying their boxes will be late and will not be shipped out until may 1st to May 5th…..I hope they are not lieing to some people and sending others their boxes.

Svetlana7e

I have not received mine either. Nor I received shipping notification. Hopefully they will ship it this week.

Marion
