Introducing Beauty Box 5!

beauty-box-5-1

Do you subscribe to any beauty-box service like Birchbox – or Beauty Box 5? I’ve received a couple Birchbox’s over the year, and I like them…. for the most part. I find myself using half the samples – or so. I find the products that Birchbox sends to be on the higher-end which is great – unless I really LOVE the sample I’ve tried, and then I can’t afford to buy the full size. That’s annoying.

Beauty Box 5 is a bit different. You get 5 products each month (for $12 a month) and the products tend to be much more affordable. For a person like me, this is much more beneficial, because if I fall in love with the product, then I’ll be able to go out and buy it myself!

Here is a sneak peak at what a Beauty Box might look like. Products I received are:

1. Full sized Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow in ‘bora bora’ – $14

2. Sample Sized Heavenly Silk Nourishing Moisturizer – $4.00 (for full size)

3. Sample sized Nubar nail polish in ‘Faded Jeans’ – $7.49 (for full size)

4. h20 Micro-Collagen Moisturizer – $50.00 (for full size)

5. Pink nail file – full size

You can choose from two subscription options. Either $12 a month for month-to-month, or $30 for 3 months.

REVIEW: Total Domination Mascara by bareMinerals!

I’m loving bareMineral’s NEW Total Domination Volumizing Mascara! This is a do-it-all mascara for larger-than-life lashes.

This volumizing, lengthening, thickening, separating, long-wearing mascara does it all. The exclusive ProTwist180™ Wand is spiraled 180 degrees to curve around each lash and coat at every angle with intense black color.

I love the want. It’s thick – and is twisted – so you’re sure to cover each lash perfectly! I just love how this goes on – and how it doesn’t flake – or get “soft” on me. You know I hate my mascara to go soft on me. My eyelashes look fantastic all day – and can even survive the heat and humidity!

Clinically proven to lengthen, thicken, separate, lift, curl and volumize up to 345%*

Lash Domination™ Volumizing Mascara is powered by nourishing minerals & quinoa protein complex for larger-than-life lashes

Long-wearing

$18 here!

Combine this amazing mascara with the Locked & Coated Waterproof Lash Topcoat – and you’re SET for your water days! This invisible topcoat instantly makes mascara waterproof for lasting, locked-on wear. Made with black diamond, amethyst, sapphire, and ruby, this mineral-rich formula locks in your perfect lash look while the ultra fine bristles of the molded brush evenly coat each lash without altering your mascara application.

I LOVE the option of going waterproof! I typically don’t like waterproof mascara, but having the option to make this fabulous mascara waterproof – really entices me! Perfect for those trips to the lake! Love it!
