BEAUTY BOX 5 Photos, Swatches & Review – October 2013

Press Sample

Transitioning to Fall can be hard for some and downright painful for others, so for October 2013 Beauty Box 5 is here to make it a little easier on you and helping to focus on the beauty essentials.

Even just by looking at the card above, I was excited to check out the five items in this months box, especially the Nubar! I love Nubar and don’t get nearly enough chances to check it out!

From Aveeno, the Daily Moisturizing Lotion. It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of Aveeno. Generally I use the Skin Relief line, but the Daily Moisturizing Lotion is still fabulous and works well. This small bottle will be perfect for my purse when I’m feeling dry on-the-go this winter.

From Model Co, the Illusion Nude Lip Pencil. This is a full size item with a retail of $20.00. I’m pleasantly in love with this lip pencil. I’m not normally a lip pencil type of girl, but this is that perfect MLBB shade that will work with all of those nude lippies that I absolutely love. I adore the little tag-a-long sharpener too!

From Swissco, the Glitter Toe Separators. I must have weirdly spaced feet, because I never use things like this. That being said, I may start because it would be fun to stare at glitter between my toes as the polish dries.

From La Fresh, the Travel Lite Facial Cleansing Wipes. I love, love, love getting these in the subscription boxes. Cleansing Wipes are a lazy girls best friend and I can’t get enough of them. Every once in awhile I just do not want to wash my face. I know it’s bad, but I’m being real. I’m not so lazy that I won’t wipe my makeup off, so that is when an item like this comes in handy. I tend to keep Murad wipes on hand, since I break out easily, but this smaller package makes an excellent back-up!

From Nubar, the Alter Ego Nail Lacquer in Kristal. How flipping adorable is this nail polish bottle?! It’s mini and it’s flashy which makes it fabulously adorable. It’s full of iridescent hex glitters in small and large sizes and adds pizzazz to any shade. Below is one coat over a bare nail.

I thought this box was a great mix of makeup, skincare and nail. Based off of this first shipment I’d say it’s worth the $12.00 price tag. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store for November!
