Now, on to the items!
LaRitzy Highlighter Stick in Halo – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $24
I’d recommend this highlighter for anyone who wants a subtle look, or anyone who is new to highlighters – you can’t mess up this application! The stick is creamy, and the champagne gold finish is subtle and easy to blend.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $22
This is a pitch black, precise liquid eyeliner. Easy to use, and that’s good because it is smudge-proof as soon as it sets!
Here it is swatched below the highlighter:
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (.1oz) Value $2.86
I love Laneige products, but I haven’t tried their lip mask yet, so this was the highlight of the box for me!
I wasn’t sure what a “lip mask” formula should feel like – but it’s basically the same feel as a lip balm. It’s super hydrating, not sticky, and you wake up to softer lips! I always keep a lip balm on my nightstand, and if I wake up in the middle of the night, I always feel the need to reapply, but I didn’t with this!
Nexxus Keraphix Shampoo (3 oz) Value $2.64
This shampoo and conditioner are designed to help repair your hair and prevent damage and breakage.
Nexxus Keraphix Conditioner (3 oz) Value $2.64
(I always appreciate when a subscription box sends both the shampoo and conditioner so you can truly test the formulas!) I don’t usually tell a difference between shampoos/conditioners, but these were good! And the sample sizes are good, too – they should last for at least a week!
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet (15ml) Value $15
This is an oil-free, lightweight, gel/cream hybrid moisturizer. The formula is gentle, ingredient-conscious, and left my skin feeling soft and smooth. I’m so glad this is a generously sized sample because it’s such a quality staple and great to use before makeup application.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $69.14. I think that’s a great value for a $15 beauty box. This box wasn’t as exciting for me as other Allure Beauty Boxes (nothing against Allure, I just personally have a lot of highlighters and eyeliners), but it’s a solid box, and I’ll use everything!
