February 2019 No Make No Life Box Review
The booklet list gives you detailed information on each item, as well as instructions on how to use certain products. It also has other helpful info, and this month included a little write up on the difference between K- Beauty, and J- Beauty which I found interesting! This sub has both types.
Skin Milk Bomb Face Mask – Retail Value $3.00
This was a hard one for me. I hate food scents and while I love chocolate, I really don’t like my beauty products smelling like it. I know some of you love food scents so I want to give you a review on the formula, sans scent. It was a little milky (which was appropriate for the flavor) and very hydrating. I did not find it sticky at all! My skin was very refreshed and dewy after removal.
Savon De Chocolate Soap
Oh man. More chocolate. This was literally the most chocolate thing I have ever smelled, real chocolate included! It is meant to be a chocolate lava cake smell and they totally nailed it. The bar itself was pretty decent, making my skin feel really clean without being too dry.
Sparkling Eye Gloss in Honey Gold
I tend to always love Japanese and Korean eyeshadows because they are often very subtle, yet buildable. This beautiful soft gold goes on smooth as a dream and stays put all day. It also blends out so nicely if you catch it before it dries. The color and sheen are demure enough for daily wear but also shimmery enough to be used for a more fancy evening out as well.
Tony Moly Eyebrow Pencil
I can always use more eyebrow pencils as I have yet to really find a favorite. This one did impress me though, as the pigment was smooth and a great shade for my light brown brows. I also thought the spoolie end was genius and super helpful when it comes to softening and blending the pencil.
Crayon Touch Me Lip Gloss in Shiny Orange
This cute gloss smells so good! It is a soft blend of oranges and flowers. The gloss itself feels great on my lips, though I wish the applicator grabbed more each time I applied it. It is super shiny and has little glitter and sparkle particles that don’t feel gritty. The orange color is so subtle that it is barely noticeable at all but does add a little warmth to my lips.
Swatches from top to bottom: Tony Moly Eyebrow Pencil, Sparkling Eye Gloss in Honey Gold, and Crayon Touch Me Lip Gloss in Shiny Orange
Fascy Moisture Bomb Hand Cream – Retail Value $12.00
So many food scents this month guys. I guess that means my close friends get little gifts they will love! Formula wise this could be heavier, but I admittedly like my creams thick as mortar. It left my hands nicely hydrated and smelling like strawberries.
Colorful Cotton Balls (100 Count)
I needed cotton balls so bad that they were on my shopping list! A subscription box comes through again! These are so precious and are the cutest colors. I love an elevated basic and these will be so darling on my vanity. I go through cotton balls so fast when it comes to toners, nail polish removal, everything!
This is another one of those pieces that just makes a vanity look extra fancy. This puff will work great with your powders and powder foundations while giving your morning routine a decidedly feminine air.
Verdict: No Make No Life Box was super fun this month! Though I do not care at all for the food scents, all the other items were wins for me. I loved all three makeup items, especially the eye shadow. I also now have the cutest cotton balls on the block. This is one of those subs that can be pretty hit or miss but always exciting! I absolutely love the fun and sometimes crazy assortment of Japanese and Korean beauty items.
Value Breakdown: This box costs $35.00 + free shipping, which means that each of the 8 items in the box has an average cost of $4.38.
