Jersey Shore Mongongo Lip Conditioner – FULL SIZE! Value $10
Before I ever sampled Jersey Shore Cosmetics lip balm, I thought their retail prices were way too high. But after I used the lip balm for the first time I understood. The formula is so smooth and moisturizing. And the tropical flavor is delicious!
Nanacoco Eye and Lip Pencil in Gold – FULL SIZE! Value $5.50
This coppery gold eye shadow crayon glides on smoothly. It has excellent pigment and microshimmer, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Jelly Pong Pong Bare Necessities Highlighting Pencil – FULL SIZE! Value $17.95
I was so happy to see Jelly Pong Pong in this box! (I love all the brands in the So Susan family – they are ingredient conscious and the formulas are fab too.)
This pink highlighter is creamy with excellent pigment. (Swatched in lower photo.) You can use this highlighter pencil on your brow bone, corners of your eyes, waterline, etc.
COUGAR Beauty 24-Hour Liquid Lipstick – FULL SIZE! Value $13
This liquid lipstick has a matte finish and excellent pigment. They staying power was pretty impressive, too. I really love the berry shade! Here it is swatched beneath the eye pencil crayon and the highlighter pencil:
De La Cruz Arnica Salve – .12 oz Value $.36
I wasn’t expecting much from this little sample, but I ended up being impressed! It’s a rich balm (so it’s a little greasy), and it has a fabulous wintergreen scent.
This body scrubber has two sides – so you pick how much exfoliation power you want!
And it has a label with an indicator that fades when it’s time to replace it:
Verdict: This month’s Beauty Box 5 has a retail value of about $52. I think that’s great for a $12 box, and I’m so impressed with this box! Almost all full-size items, great value, and good products, too!
