Now, on to the items!
Feel Beauty Bamboo Charcoal Facial Sheet Masks – (2) Value $17.50
These sheet masks are designed to detoxify your skin, fight acne, remove oil, and hydrate your skin. (So, basically just all the things!) You leave the sheet mask on for at least 30 minutes, then massage any remaining serum into your skin.
This mask is made with bamboo fiber that feels like a fabric, so it forms to your face easily and doesn’t slip off like some sheet masks. It was gentle on my skin, and while I usually hate leaving a mask on for more than 15 minutes, this one didn’t bother me! It left my skin feeling hydrating and looking dewy – I’m a fan! (And I’m glad they sent more than one!)
Confession – I love a good peel off mask! (They are right up there with Biore pore strips for me!) This one is made with cucumber extract and designed to soothe your skin. It’s a sticky gel that dries, and then you easily pull it off after 5-10 minutes.
I can’t say I noticed any difference in my skin, though. (And I wish this sample was resealable – I didn’t need to use all the mask provided.)
This was the spoiler item I was most excited about, and it did not disappoint! It’s a game changer!
Typically, I use a beauty blender or a stippling brush to apply liquid foundation. This silicone applicator gets the same flawless application look of the beauty blender, but it has additional benefits:
- No foundation absorbing into it! With a Beauty Blender or brush, I’m always losing some foundation to the tool itself, but this silicone isn’t porous, so all makeup goes on your skin!
- Super easy cleanup! Just soap, water, and towel it off and it’s good to go! No waiting for beauty blenders/brushes to dry!
I’m SO happy BeautyCon included this in the box!
Deco Miami Lemon Blossom Cuticle Oil – Value $12.50
This cuticle oil instantly moisturized my cuticles, but more importantly, it smells like a delicious lemon cake! Best smelling cuticle oil ever!
Deco Miami Beautycon Pink Glass Nail File – Value $10
Nail files aren’t too exciting for me, but this is officially the prettiest one I own!
Manna Kadar Flutter Mascara in Jet Black – Value $29
I’ve sampled SO much Manna Kadar thanks to subscription boxes, but I actually hadn’t tried this mascara yet!
Unfortunately, it’s a complete miss for me. The brush is oversized, which might be good for some, but for me, it made it impossible to get the mascara close to my lash line. It added length and color, but I wasn’t impressed with the volume. And the formula and brush weren’t great for lash separation either.
(I’m wondering if I would have had better results if I used the Step 1 Lash Primer Manna Kadar also sells?)
Doucce Lush Lip Gloss in Glistening Petals – Value $22
I love this color! The formula has good pigment for a gloss, and it provides a high-shine finish. The downside to that is that it also has some stickiness.

Jonteblu Electric Blue Eyeliner Pencil – Value $5
This eyeliner has good pigment with a shimmery finish. The blue is a little lighter than I typically go when I wear a blue eyeliner, but it seems fun for summer.

This eyeshadow crayon glides on so smoothly and it has excellent pigment and shimmer. The color is a coppery gold, and it blends easily, too.

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in London Fog – Value $6
No surprise here – this ColourPop formula has AMAZING pigment! The satin finish means it has a little more sheen than your typical matte lippie.
I found that it does transfer a bit more because of the satin finish, but there is still more than enough product left to keep your lips completely covered.
Here it is swatched beneath the lipgloss, eyeliner, and eyeshadow crayon:
Verdict: This box has a value of about $138! I think that’s a great value for a $36 quarterly box. That being said, not all products were wins for me, but there were enough to call this box a success. The standout products for me are the sheet masks, cuticle oil, silicone makeup applicator, and the ColourPop lippie.
If you’re thinking about trying the makeup applicator anyway (and I recommend it), that makes the rest of the items in this box cost only $16 total!
