  • Nubar Alter Ego Nail Polish (retail price – $5.00) -I love this polish! The base color is clear so the glitter is beautiful but subtle. I love how it looked and how quick it dried.
  • La Fresh travel lite Facial Cleansing Wipes (retail $19.99 48 count) – I really love these facial wipes. They work great removing makeup or left my skin feeling clean and fresh without any residue.
  • Model Co Illusion Lip Pencil (retail $20 FULL SIZE) – A great lip liner, the pencil is really creamy and easy to apply. The nude color is a great base for dark red, berry lip looks.
  • Glitter Toe Spacers ($2.00 FULL SIZE)

BB5 Nov review 2013


2013 November’s box samples:

  • Secret’s Clinical Strength Deodorant ($7.99). This formula is the  “completely clean” scent and is an invisible solid. I like that it doesn’t leave marks on any of my clothes and keeps me smelling fresh and clean even after working out.
  • Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Mask ($2.49). I love a good face mask and was excited to try this one as its  clay infused sheet mask.  My skin felt so soft and smooth after using it. This would make a great stocking stuffer!

  • BellaPiere Cosmetics Shimmer Powder ($14).I have a hard time with loose powders but found this actually pretty easy to use. It stuck to my shadow brush during application and I was able to apply without making a mess. The color is really pigmented and lasted all day.
  • Aveeno Calming Body Wash (sample size) I love the lavender and chamomile scent and I like how it cleans and leaves my skin really soft. I will definitely be buying more of this!
  • Body Drench Lip Drench Eucalyptus Moisturizing Lip Balm ($4.99).  I love anything  eucalyptus or peppermint and this lip balm is my new fave. It feels great on my lips and has really helped keep them from getting chapped in the cold.

In each Beauty Box 5 you will find list of the samples, the full size price, description and product’s website. I am really enjoying Beauty Box 5 so far! The sizes are really awesome as well! For $12, you can’t beat it!

Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette


Too Faced A Few of My Favorite Things Palette is one of my favorite holiday palettes I have tried this season. It  includes twenty eye shadows, two blushes, two bronzers,  a full-sized Lip Injection Color Bomb, and a travel-sized Better Than Sex Mascara.

The 20 eye shadows are made up of 5 matte finish, and 15 metallic/shimmer shadows. I love the shadows in this palette they are super smooth and very pigmented. The shadows went on so easy and most wear for at least 8hrs.

The blushes and bronzers in this set are great. Really smooth and super pigmented I was impressed how long wearing they are.  The standouts to me are Melt into Spring a gorgeous soft pink and Sun Bunny #1 my new favorite bronzer.

On top of all the great shadows you also get two of their top sellers Lip Injection Color Bomb in Bee Sting a perfect pale pink and one of my faves Better Than Sex Mascara. All this and a matching travel bag, it would make the perfect Christmas gift!
