Beauty Box 5 October 2014 Review

Hello readers,
It's time for another Beauty Box 5 to show you.  The theme this month was 'effortless allure' and I'm pretty happy with this month's contents.  Here's what I got.

Chapstick Hydration Lock | Retail: $2.99 0.154 oz
"This double-ended wonder balm with 2 conditioning formulas will keep your pout portected, soothed and smooth- 24/7! BB5 Tip: Wear alone for a subtle shin or under your lipstick to keep your smackers hydrated!
 Lip balm is something I go through a lot of so I'm happy to see this in my box.  It will definitely get used.

Bellapiere Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink | Retail: $19.99 0.31oz
"Do double duty with this sweet stain! Use your fingertip to apply a small amount to your lips or blend onto the apples of your cheeks.  BB5 Tip: If you're running late, a little dab on both will add a flirty flush of color in seconds!"
 I'm looking forward to trying this one out.  It looks a little too light for me but if it's more sheer than opaque I think it will work out nicely.  Another good product in my opinion.

Lashem Picture Perfect | Retal $3.95 0.5fl oz
 "Look fab at every age! This nourishing serum reduced fine lines for a gorgeous glow when applied after cleansing.  BB5 Tip: Not worried about wrinkles yet? It also works as a primer- blend onto face and let dry to proved a smooth canvas for makeup application.
 I don't have to worry about wrinkles yet and I don't wear any face makeup that requires a primer so this product doesn't really work for me.  It'll end up on the swap list.

Nanacoco Nail Polishes | Retail $3.95 0.5fl oz
"Pretty polish, please! We love these high-quality lacquers for their thick professional formulas.  BB5 Tip: Let each layer of polish dry completely before you add another for the longest-lasting mani and pedi!"
 Finally! A polish in a colour I actually like... no more red!  I haven't tried this brand before but it looks like a really pretty periwinkle cream and I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.

Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool | Retail $5.49 6 inches
"Throwing away precious products hurts, so make sure you get every single drop!  This handy spatula grabs that hard-to-reach last bit and lengthens the life of your beauty essentials.  BB5 Tip: It's dishwasher-safe, so you can reuse it again and again!
I'm undecided on this one.  I usually just cut open tubes to get at the very last of a product so this seems kind of gimmicky.  I do like that it's washable and reusable though.


I'm quite happy with this month's box.  There's lots of products that I will definitely use. If you want to find out more about BB5 or sign up for your own box check out the BB5 website.
Happy polishing,
