Now, on to the items!
Milk Makeup Blur Stick – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $36
I really love MILK’s stick products for travel – no liquids! This is a primer that goes on smoothly, provides a matte finish, and “blurs” pores a bit by making them less visible. I wear a full-coverage foundation, and this worked well as the base.
Huxley Secret of Sahara Grab Water Essence – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $58
This is a gel/essence hybrid that provides lots of hydration while still feeling cool and lightweight. The formula absorbs quickly, leaves a matte finish, and is great to use before other skincare items and/or makeup.
YSL Beauty Mascara Vinyl Couture in I’m The Storm – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $29
How gorgeous is this mascara tube? And yes, those are sparkles in the formula!
This is a top coat (you apply on dry mascara) and it gives your lashes a subtle sparkle. (When I first saw the tube I assumed this would be for super glam looks only, but I think you can pull it off every day!) The shimmer is a gunmetal silver and it stays put and catches the light beautifully. So fun!
M·A·C Cosmetics Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo – FULL SIZE! Retail Value $18.50
This formula is a classic red with blue undertones, and it has a matte finish. The color is gorgeous, if a bit bold for me. Here it is swatched:
One thing to mention is that the formula isn’t moisturizing. I’d recommend using a lip balm before applying. (This isn’t a long lasting lipstick either, but it wears down nicely.)
Babor Perfect Glow Ampoule Concentrates – 7 Ampoules Retail Value $39.95
If you aren’t familiar with the Babor Ampules, you’ll get a set of single-use glass vials. (This allows the formulas to have a higher concentration of active ingredients.) Then use the plastic cap opener to snap open the vial when ready to use:
This is designed to hydrate skin and provide a radiant finish. The formula is shimmery in the bottle, but it dried down to matte finish on my skin without any type of glow. (Fine for a serum, but just don’t expect a dewy glow!)
This treatment includes a single-use of their Don’t Despair, Repair! hair mask, and a shower cap that is infused with Ultra Repair Essence. First, you put on the hair mask, then follow with the shower cap. Massage your scalp with the shower cap on for 15 seconds, then let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing out.
This added moisture and softness to my hair without making it greasy the next day – I’m a fan!
Saturday Skin Spotlight Brightening Mask – 1 Mask Value $6
This mask is ingredient-conscious, super hydrating, and felt so great on my skin. I probably will buy more of these I liked it so much!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $196.45! I think that’s great for the $68 cost, and even better if you use coupon code LOVE15 or TAKE15 or 10FOR2018 to get it at a discount. This was a good mix of new-to-me products, too!
Can you still get this box today? Yep. This one-time purchase box is still available!
