Pink may not be a typical color for Autumn, but it has become the color for October. As you may well know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Like most women, it’s a very important cause for me, not just as a woman, but as someone who has numerous family members that have been effected. My mother-in-law & multiple aunts have all survived this monster health issue.
To celebrate survivors everywhere, Beauty Box 5 is in a Pink State of Mind! Now, I need to point out that due to postal issues, I didn’t receive my box until the 22nd, but it couldn’t be helped. Regardless, there’s enough of October left to enjoy our Beauty Box!
As you may have guessed, every item included is pink! First up, we have the neatest looking Kabuki brush I’ve seen. Ferro Cosmetics brings us the ‘Pink Rhinestone Kabuki Brush’. So soft that you’ll want to cuddle it, this brush works very well with Mineral Foundation. It holds the powder well & evenly distributes it. Although it has an MSRP of $25, for the quality of the brush, I’d say it is easily worth the money. Plus, with its unique color theme, it’s simply cool to use.
Happy Hands has included their Makeup Cleansing Cloth. With just water, it wipes impurities such as your make-up away. I’ll agree that it is gentle to the skin. I did have a bit of a hard time removing darker eye makeup without leaving behind a ‘shadow’ of it. It comes with an MSRP of $3.99 which is pretty close to the amount one would spend on makeup removal cloths from other manufactures which are disposable & supply more than one cloth.
Styli-Style’s ‘Perfect Pout Long Lasting Lip Balm’ definitely goes on smoothly. I’d call the color ‘vibrant’, for sure. A little too vibrant for me. Perhaps it was the particular shade of pink. It looked very 1980’s on me. Hopefully, not everyone would have the same experience. It’s competitive with an MSRP of $4.99. As for its long-lasting claim, it lasted as long as the majority of balms of tried which is, it stayed put until I ate or drank.
Knotty Hair Ties are simply adorable! They give that youthful feel without making you look like you tried too hard. Very feminine with their ‘Think Pink’ theme, they don’t snag or knot. My hair is beyond ‘fine’ & they stayed put for me. I’d say they’re a perfect stocking stuffer for the girls in your life. With an MSRP of $4, they’re affordable & comfortable- two of my favorite qualities!
Nubar finishes up our Pink box with a Nail Polish Mini. Again, the color was simply not for me, but Nubar does produce quality polishes in general. I would recommend it for a Breast Cancer event such as a mani/pedi session for chemotherapy patients. It’s also feminine & easy to apply. It’s MSRP is $4.99, making it an affordable way to show support.
Beauty Box 5, a monthly subscription service, provides a box of 5 products, delivered via USPS. For $12 a month, each month brings a fabulous surprise directly to you. No driving. No fuss. In October’s box alone, there are 4 FULL sized products. Add it all up. You’d have paid way over $12 to try these products.
With the holidays approaching, a subscription would make a terrific gift. Visit http://www.beautybox5.com. You’ll find full product info as well as how to order your own.
I received the aforementioned products in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.
