October Beauty Box 5: Effortless Allure

Effortless Allure. We all desire THAT type of look. The, I-deliberately-tried-to-make-it-look-like-I-didn’t-try-to-look-this-amazing style that some days, seems way too hard to achieve. Fortunately Beauty Box 5 subscribers will have a much easier time mastering that look in October, thanks to their Effortless Allure box that made me one happy blogger earlier this week…seriously, one of my favorite boxes to date!

Beauty Box 5 October

Beauty Essentials from Beauty Box 5

Montly Subscription Box, Chapstick Hydration Lock, Lashem Picture Perfect, Extend Your Beauty

Instant Wrinkle Reducer, Lashem Cosmetics, Winter Chapstick

Nanacoco Nail Polish, Nanacoco My Prince, Pretty Blue Nail Polish, Bellapierre Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink

Chapstick Hydration Lock (Full Size, $2.99): You really can never go wrong with a classic! Chapstick’s new Hydration Lock is dual-sided, one side for day, the other night. The ultra-conditioning day formula is equipped with SPF12, while the night side keeps your pucker smooth with tamanu oil, natural butters and antioxidants.

Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink (Full Size, $19.99): Eek!!! I was so so excited to see this in my October box! I’ve not worn it on my cheeks yet, but it really is the perfect pink for lips: a blush nude with a whisper of rose. I adore it! It’s not as drying as a regular stain but does pack staying power.

Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool (Full Size, $5.49): I saw this and had a “Why didn’t I invent this?” moment. I am the queen of scavenging every last bit of everything via any means possible. Scraping, cutting, adding just a bit of water, I’ve been there tried that. This will make getting every last bit so much easier.

Nanacoco Nail Polish in My Prince (Full Size, $3.95): I’m loving this color for fall and dreaming up all sorts of manicures to try with it. A cross between blueberry and periwinkle, I’m sure I’ll be using it alongside golds and mulberry shades for fall.

Lashem Picture Perfect (Deluxe Sample, $1 or $3.95 for Full Size): Last month we received the Lashem 3-in-1 Eyebright and I LOVED it so I’m anxious to try this serum…especially since I have team pics on Monday with my cheer and dance teams, and I want to look, well you know, picture perfect.

Total value of the October Beauty Box 5 was $33.42 for a savings of between $21.42 and $25.17. With Christmas coming up, Beauty Box 5 makes for a perfect gift for friends or family…and they’ll fondly think of you every time they open their mailbox and find the pretty blue box staring back at them.
