This month I got...

Beauty Box 5 Swatches Review August 2015

From Hask Beauty, Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment. Hask is a fabulous brand and I've been a fan of their hair products for some time. Assorted packets were sent out and I got the Keratin Protein one, which is perfect for my frizzy, color-treated, damaged hair. Retail price: $2.39 for 1.75 oz.

From Donnamax, Printed Nail File with Case. How fun is this nail file?! I generally use a glass nail file, but this would be great to keep in the car if you're in a pinch. TBH, and don't laugh, I'm likely going to use it as a photo prop lol. Retail price: $4.99.

From Pur-lisee, Pur Moist Hydra-Balance Moisturizer. Though we've been seeing a lot of Pur-lisse lately in sub boxes I do like the brand. This sample is small, so it makes it hard to review the actual skincare claims, but I will say I like the feel of it and there's no describable fragrance. It's also intended for sensitive skin. Retail price: $55.00 for 1.7oz.

From Jerome Alexander, Hot Stuff Go Pop Compacts. Right off I thought it was really cool to see that what was inside of this bold, yellow case was actually a pretty usable palette. Though, you guys know I really hate when my lip palettes mesh with my eye palettes... dust gets in the lip side from the shadow side... my OCD is not okay with that. However, the products inside are very pretty and wearable (if you're warm toned). The sturdy case and the full mirror make it very travel friendly. The colors that people received are assorted. Retail price: $10.99.

From Starlooks, Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen in Plum. This liner applied smoothly and wore nicely all day long. The dark plum shade almost borders brown in color. The big winner in this months shipment! Retail price: $19.99.

This months box was fabulous with an incredible value! Every month BB5 just keeps getting better. I'm particularly impressed with the Starlooks Eyeliner and the Jerome Alexander Compact was a nice touch. Also I'm in love with the nail file design! Definitely worth the retail price because the best items were the full sized items which total to over double what you’ll pay for the box, the eyeliner alone retails for $19.99!
