Beauty Box 5 Review: December 2015

Filers, it’s the last day of 2015! Time for reflection and all that. Oh…and time for makeup!

You know the drill. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription services where you spend $12 a month and they send you a box of 5 full and sample beauty products.

Now, normally I’d have an unboxing video to show you guys, but I’ve been having trouble with YouTube. Until I get that figured out, I’m going to have to skip the unboxings. I’ll keep you updated.

So, we’re going straight to the review!

Beauty Box 5 December 2015

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: The BoxIn the December 2015 box, I got…

Guys, everything in this box is full-size. Not a single sample in sight! Not only that, the entire thing is worth over $50.

BB5 gets better all the time, and this box really takes the cake.

OFRA Shimmer Eye Shadow

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: OFRA Shimmer Eye Shadow in BohemianThis month, we got a shimmer eye shadow from OFRA. I got the bronzy “Bohemian” shade.

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: OFRA Eye ShadowThis looks like a sample, but it’s not. It’s a refill, so it’s a pan that doesn’t have any outer packaging. That kind of bummed me out a little.

It ends up as a soft bronze that works well in the crease of an otherwise neutral eye shadow look.

Beauty Box 5 Blender Brush

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: Beauty Box 5 Blender BrushIt looks like Beauty Box 5 has made their own makeup brush…and it’s pretty awesome. The synthetic bristles are soft and moderately stiff. The rounded shape makes it especially good for blending colors into the crease.

A few bristles fell out, but it wasn’t too bad.

Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity Eyeliner

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner SwatchGuys…Guys! I think I might just have found my favorite eyeliner ever. It goes on smoother and cleaner than any other eyeliner I’ve tried, and that’s saying something. It’s also the blackest I’ve ever seen.

And though it’s a pencil, it ends up looking like liquid eyeliner—and I mean that in the best way. Ugh, I love it.

The Beauty Crop Glamazon Stick

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: The Beauty Crop Glamazon StickThey also gave us a pretty highlighter stick from The Beauty Crop.

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: Glamazon StickThis is another winner. It highlights so well but without adding a ton of pigment or shimmer. It looks especially good on the cupid’s bow.

With this and the eyeliner, I think this might be my favorite BB5 box of all time.

So Fresh So Clean Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Beauty Box 5 December 2015: So Fresh So Clean Makeup WipesI didn’t exactly need makeup remover wipes—not after the completely awesome cleansing cloth I got in the October box.

But still, they’re nice to have, and these ones did a great job of removing super bold lipstick with just a couple of swipes.

Happy New Year!
