Tribe Beauty Box April 2018 Review
This month’s box includes products from different categories that are great additions to anyone’s makeup kit. Let’s see what I got!
There are three cards included. The first is a card with the theme “Just Bloom, Baby” and a description and value of each product. The small cards are 20% off coupons for Ruby May Cosmetics and Maskeraide, two brands that are included this month.
Face: Marc Jacobs Coconut Setting Mist, 30ml/1oz – Estimated Value $10.45 (buy a 3.8oz bottle for $39)
This is the first setting spray that I’ve used that feels hydrating and not crunchy on my face. I’ll admit, I actually don’t use it as a setting spray, but prefer it as a refresher throughout the day. It helps soothe mid-day tight skin and allows me to blend out my foundation if it needs a retouch. The pump seems to be tripping people up though. You have to push the pump all the way down to get a fine mist, otherwise you get more of a spitting effect. The bottle comes with a little tag explaining this.
Skin: Maskeraide Hydrating Sheet Masks, 4 masks – Retail Value $21.60 USD ($5.40 USD/$7 CAD each)
Yay for sheet masks! There are four different masks to address varying skin concerns like refreshing, lifting, brightening, and restoring. All are hydrating with no artificial fragrances. I typically mask once a week and love receiving multiples. There is plenty of serum in the packets to apply to the back of your hands and neck/chest too. My skin has looked soothed and hydrated after each of these and I find that my makeup goes on like a dream after.
This double-ended brow tool is perfect for filling in and taming brows. The angled brush end tapers to a fine point so creams or powders can be applied with hair-like strokes. The spoolie is soft enough to blend product and brush brows for grooming.
This is my favorite product in this box! This is one variation of the lip product subscribers could receive. I love the color and the packaging is beautiful. The formula is super hydrating and glides on like silk. When it wears off, it leaves a nice even flush of color without pilling or caking. The subtle vanilla scent is lovely. I think this may be my new essential lip product.
So much shimmer! This palette has 6 shimmer shades in the warm-tone family. The shadows are very powdery and fluff everywhere. They do blend well and can be used with a damp brush for a foil finish. I probably won’t reach for this palette much because I prefer palettes with some matte shades to create an entire look.
Here are swatches of the eyeshadows and lipstick both inside and in sunlight.
When I took this picture, I’d already been running errands for several hours. I did use the setting spray as a proper setting spray and think it held up well. I have the lipstick on and I tried to create a look with the eyeshadow palette without any extra products. I don’t think the shadows blended as well without a matte transition shade and really work best when used as accents.
Verdict: This box has a value of $90.54 which falls below their promise of a value of at least $100 but is more than doubles the $41.99 box cost. My favorite product is the Too Faced Lipstick and, as always, I love sheet masks. I like the concept of including items from different categories to help build my makeup collection. This box is a little more expensive than other makeup boxes but I think that the value of the brands, attention to detail, and great curation make it worth it if you are wanting to try a variety of products It is also a bi-monthly sub so you are only billed every other month.
