Happy 4th Birthday, Beauty Box 5! I can't believe BB5 is 4 already?! My daughter just turned 7 so that means she was only 3 when this subscription box launched which puts into a weird perspective for me. The theme for February 2016 is "Birthday Sweets" and it's lookin' super celebratory ;)

Beauty Box 5 February 2016 What's inside open box review

This month I got...

From Hemp Nation, Kiwi-Mango Body Wash. This body wash smells amazingggggg and you can use it for bath time soaks as well. There was an indicator on the insert that this item was sent as a full-size but I'm thinking that's a typo because the bottle is pretty small and looks nothing like the pic, which usually depicts a full sized item.

From Elizabeth Mott, Thank Me Later Eye Shadow Primer. This primer goes on sheer and spreads evenly, but you do have to work quickly. It kept my eye shadow in place all day long without any fading or creasing.

From Manna Kadar Beauty, 3-in-1 Shadow, Highlight & Blush. The shade sent is in Fantasy which is described as a shimmery, rose gold pigment. Upon looking up a few other reviews I saw that my product must have shattered in transit, because it's not meant to be loose like this. Which is a good thing, because as a loose shadow the packaging wouldn't work out since it's just a screw top. I did try it out and found the shade to be wearable and buttery smooth. It's very frosty so I suggest using it sparingly. It would look lovely at the inner corners of the eye. The product sent is full sized.

From Epic Blend, Premium Lip Balm. The scent I got is "Hemp Coconut". I do love this brand and I've gotten this before in a sample box! I'll never turn up my nose at a chapstick or lip balm! The product sent is full sized.

From Starlooks, Custom Lip Liner. The shade sent is Sultry Sangria which is described as a mauve. This shade was made in honor of BB5's birthday and is one of my favorite type of shades to line with! The product sent is full sized.

Beauty Box 5 swatches review February 2016

Aside from the fact that there's a lot of hemp going on here (what kind of celebration are you up to, BB5 ;) jk) I did like the products sent this month. The only downer was the shattered eyeshadow but it is still technically usable.
