August Beauty Box 5 Review: Primped

Oh to the my goodness you guys! I am SO far behind. Maybe it’s a pride thing, but I’m thankful it’s not because of laziness, and instead sheer, running around crazy busyness. Siiiigh. Needless to say, I’m a bit tardy with my monthly Beauty Box 5 review, and not because it wasn’t fabulous, because, as you can see below, it totally was! While the August Box may be no-more, you can still sign up for the September one, which I’m sure will be equally as lovely :) ♥ :)

Donnamax Printed Nail File with Case (Full Size, $4.99): Ok, so seriously, how cute is this file? While assorted colors and prints were given, my nails will love being primped with this statement file.

Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen in Plum (Full Size, $19.99): Two things…in this case plum doesn’t mean purple (which I’m thankful for) and, this tip will make you question every other eyeliner tip you’ve ever used. Ever. The color maybe has a hint of purple, but honestly it’s more a rusty-brown. And I love it! The waterproof hue goes on super easy with the felt tip so you can completely control how much or how little to apply. Hmmm…dramatic line or a chic thin one? Decisions, decisions, wink, wink:)

Hask Beauty Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment (Full Size, $2.39): Have you used Hask products before? I’ve received a couple of different  masks and treatments through Beauty Box 5 and have yet to be disappointed! I was so psyched to have gotten this as due to aforementioned busyness, I forgot to make an appointment for my hair…meaning, no trim for me until October 6th!!! Yikes! Hopefully this Conditioner will help my hair stay manageable!

Jerome Alexander Hot Stuff To Pop Compacts (Full Size, $10.99): Ummm, seriously BB5, this is like cuteness overload! I know I know, I shouldn’t be attracted to a product by it’s packaging (don’t judge a book by it’s cover, right?), but I totally and completely am. While, the shadow colors aren’t my favorite (I generally prefer neutral tones for my eyes), I love the glosses and do adore the deep purple hue at the very top…it’s soooo super pretty. The other two shades I’ve blotted on my lips over these and other clear glosses for a lightweight matte look with just a hint of a pop of color.

Pur~Lisse Pur Moist Hydra-Balance Moisturizer (Deluxe Sample, $16 or $55 for full size): I hate to sound like a cliché, but you really can’t go wrong with anything from Purlisse! This moisturizer is perfect for sensitive skin using plant extract and Vitamin E.

The total value of the August Beauty Box 5 was $54.36 for a savings of between $42.36 and $46.11! Wowza!
