Beauty Box 5 Review: March 2016

Guess what? My birthday was yesterday! I turned the big 33.

Another interesting thing that happened? I got this month’s BB5. Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service where you spend $12 a month and they send you a box of 5 full and sample beauty products.

Let’s check out the March 2016 box.

Beauty Box 5 March 2016

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: The BoxIn this month’s box, I got…

That’s right, we got 6 things this month, when it’s normally 5. Granted, half of them were samples, but that’s still cool.

Colour Me Sky Blue Perfume

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Colour Me Sky BlueThis perfume says it smells like jasmine and freesia. To me, it just smells like patchouli and antibacterial hand soap. I’m not a fan.

Mai Cosmetics Blush & Highlighter Papiers

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Mai CoutureHave you ever tried those oil blotting papers? These are just like those except they leave shimmery color behind. While I liked the shimmer, it was super subtle. In fact, it was so subtle that I couldn’t even do a swatch for you guys because it barely showed up in pictures.

Still, it would be cool to have these in an emergency makeup bag.

Pur-lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Adore Serum

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus SerumThis is a teeny tiny sample. While I liked the way it felt–nice and moisturizing while not at all greasy–it isn’t enough product to test how well it actually works. On the plus side, it seems to be completely unscented.

Glamour Dolls Glitter Liner

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Glamour Dolls Glitter LinerLook at this bottle of eyeliner. It’s such a huge throwback to my time in junior high. Glitter makeup was all the rage.

I don’t necessarily want to relive those years…

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Glitter Liner BrushWhile it looks super jam-packed with glitter in the packaging, it doesn’t come out that way. No matter what I do, there’s very little glitter on the brush when I pull it out.

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Glitter Liner SwatchBecause of that, the line is pretty sparse. Bummer.

Personail Floral Nail Polish Wraps

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: PersonailsAs you might remember from previous posts, I’m a fan of nail polish wraps. I was stoked to find them in this month’s box.

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Personails Nail WrapsThe design I got was another throwback to the ’90s. Those colors are so old-school, but in this case, it’s not a bad thing.

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Nail Wraps In ActionWhile I liked the design and the wraps stuck well to my nails, the actual strips didn’t totally fit my nails well. Still, I’ve had them on my nails for about 24 hours and I’ve already gotten compliments.

Custom Temporary Tattoo

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Temporary TattooFinally, we got this temporary tattoo in the box. I’m not mad at all. I’m actually a big fan of temporary tattoos, especially flash tattoos.

Beauty Box 5 March 2016: Temporary Tattoo In ActionIt came out very well on my skin. I put it right on the inside of my forearm, and I expect to get people wondering if it’s real tonight.

What did you think of this month’s box? Despite it having an extra item, I felt lukewarm about most of the stuff inside.
