It was getting pretty frustrating that the sneak peek email I received did not work and noting was updating on my Sephora account. Ugh! Sephora, step it up! I have had all of my other boxes and have started used the product days before I find out this box has shipped. No tracking email? No updates to my Play page? If it had not been for the charge on the 4th stating I had ordered item1850072 I was beginning to wonder if I was getting a bag this month at all.
Until today. Today I have a shipment code listed on my Sephora account page. Still no shipment email notifying me that my package has been sent. No, just a link on my account. And, when I click on that link, it says that the package is out for delivery! **SQUEE** It shipped on the 11th.
By the looks of the spoiler, it looks like I am going to like my box!
I loved another product from Briogeo, the leave in protectant, so I have high hopes for this product.
Total value: $119.50
Final verdict: I will not use the bronzer, and I find it an odd addition to a fall box. Really wished I had gotten the Cargo blush, but one bad item does not ruin a box. The brushes and lip product are nice items I will use. The eye shadow is a strong maybe. I'm most excited with the hair cream.
This box was not as strong as boxes in the past few months, but still worth the investment.
I was so happy to see this little teal box in my mailbox today!
This month's theme is boss babe coming through.
Wonder what is in the box?
This month's product card.
Emery + Ivory: custom nail appliques Value $12.99
These are nice colors. I'm more of a nail polish person, but I may give these a go.
Amlactin: ULTRA Hydrating Body Cream Value $2.99
A girl can never go wrong with unscented lotion.
This promises to be a deeply hydrating and mildly exfoliating lotion.
Chella: Ivory Lace Highlighting Pencil Value $18
I got one of theses in an Ipsy bag a year or so ago.
I use it in the inner corners of my eyes for a pop but there are tons of ways to use it.
From the website: Hello Ivory: This fresh and pretty neutral Highlighter pencil will brighten and visibly lift your eyes when lightly applied on the brow bone and dark circles. It can conceal blemishes and spots on light skin tones. In addition, this multi-purpose pencil can be used to “open” the eye area by applying to the water line and inner corners of the eye. Perfect for highlighting a beautiful smile and preventing lipstick spread by applying to the Cupid 's bow and along the lip line. So many uses in just one perfect pencil! Formulated for LIGHT toned skin. Beautiful!
Color Me: Femme Gold perfume sample Value $10 (for full size)
Kind of disappointed to see a perfume sample in the box. Sephora
Play uses these as an extra, so that I how I am conditioned to see them.
On the bright side, the perfume smells great. It is promised to be long lasting; they have a 6 hour scent guarantee printed on the packaging.
Real Her: moisturizing lipstick Value $18
I received the color I Am Powerful which is a dark wine color.
This shade is a little dark for my taste, but it is comfortable on my lips and so far seems to wear well.
Total value: $51.98 + a perfume sample.
Final Verdict: Four full size items were in the box this month as well as the perfume sample.
This month's box is a great value for the $12 I spent on it.
I stumbled upon BB5 eleven months ago and I think it proves the best things can come in small boxes! I don't know why I don't hear more about this box as it includes some pretty impressive items.
So, let's take a look at this month's box!
The product card with this month's theme: favorite products.
Be A Bombshell: Smooth Criminal Finishing Powder Value $7
This is a full size product.
I have never used any of their products and this appears to be good quality.
Go Smile: Teeth whitening gel Value $29 (for full size)
From the product card, you are to add equal parts Go Smile with your favorite toothpaste and brush as normal.
Simple Skincare: simple cleansing facial wipes Value $5.99 (for full size)
Pur-lisse: Blue Lotus Essential DailyMoisturizer Value $55 (for full size)
The wipes are a deluxe sample with 7 wipes included.
So far I am pleased with the scent and the performance.
Pur-lisse seems to be a brand I get often in my subscription boxes.
I am on the hunt of a good moisturizer, so this intrigues me.
Happy Brands: happy hair turban Value $18
Doing a happy dance!
I loved the Happy makeup removing cloth BB5 sent in a box several months ago.
This hair turban is made of the same material that has worn well in my cloth. It is sewn with a large hood and the back end is a smaller fold .there is an elastic loop on the hood to hold the bottom of the turban in place.
I love this as much as I thought I would. It dries my hair much faster than a normal towel. This has become my daily use hair drying towel.
