T.L.C. From Beauty Box 5

This month, TLC stands for Total Lip Care! February, the month of love, has been given ‘Lips’ as its theme. All 5 of this month’s collection are for your lips only. Pucker up! Here we go….

Four of our Five products are full-sized. That’s just one of the awesome perks that come with Beauty Box 5. Never used BB5? You truly are missing out! They are a monthly, subscription service that delivers 5 new, new-to-you, or even old favorites right to your mailbox. With a $12/month price tag, BB5 gives consumers the opportunity to try before they buy. Instead of investing your time and especially your cash, in products that have a 50/50 shot of being just what you wanted, you can experience it and draw your own conclusion in the comfort f your own home. Some you’ll love, some maybe not so much, but you’ll have fn trying new things each month.

Jean Pierre Cosmetics’ Pink Moisturizing Lip Mask is our only product not full-sized. The actual mask itself is full-sized but it usually comes in a 5 pack. Here, we get one mask to try.
Upon first glance, the masks sort of remind med of those wax lips we used to get when we went trick or treating. You remember the ones? They were really red or had fangs and such. Good times, good times. Back then we didn’t need beauty treatments but time marched on since then! So, this product is left on for 15 minutes, removed, then you rub in the excess liquid.
The trick for me (and most moms) is keeping my mouth shut for the 15 minutes. It definitely feels like pampering and with its $5 for a set of 5 MSRP, it’s an affordable way to get your face TLC.
The next 4 items are all full-sized. ‘Tint Beauty’ makes a double contribution for February. Unicorn Lippie & Unicorn Liner go together like PB & J. Both came as the color ‘Make Believe’ which can best be described as a coral. I will say that the liner impressed me. I used it the day of my son’s performance for our local Fine Arts Festival. It stayed through numerous bottles of water and lasted literally all day. Corals are not for me, but the lip liner would be a good buy in a different color. Its MSRP of $7 is mostly competitive, but not outrageous.
The ‘Unicorn Lippie’ was not my favorite. I felt the application of it was gooey and felt like Vaseline. While it claims to last through dinner, it was long gone after water bottle number 1. With an MSRP of $9, I’d skip it, but keep the liner.

Next up, we have ‘Lip Glow’ from Style Essentials. This one looks like a lip pencil but is actually a balm. It goes on similar to Chapstick. If you are looking for a balm with color, than this one isn’t for you. The balm is lightly tinted, lightly being the key word. Mine came in ‘Pearl’. I could barely see any color. Personally, I’d have sought out a much deeper color. It’s definitely a more feminine take on simple lip balm. Its MSRP of $4 is perfectly reasonable and a good thing to carry in your purse.img_0653Finally, we have ‘Colour Hybrid’ from So Susan. This product can do double duty.Use it on cheeks and lips. But, this time, we’ll use it solely on the lips. ‘Colour Hybrid’ doesn’t come in a traditional lipstick tube. It looks more like a Carmex tube or a sample-sized toothpaste. I agree that when applied sparingly, it does add a hint of color that works well. As for lasting power, not so much. It wore off pretty quickly. Word of caution: be careful how you handle the tube. Excessive squeezing or not have the cap on properly will result in messy hands. Just saying. It has a whooping $17.50 pricetag which I feel is beyond economical. img_0654 Add up all the MSRPs & you get $42.50. Being that 4 are the same sized you’d buy individually, you’re saving 30.50. Nice!
