Total Beauty – Revlon Collection

27 Jun


Yeah! I ordered my first Total Beauty Box! The Revlon Collection box is $15, but you can get 20% off by using code TBC20 or RETAILMENOT20 and pay only $12 + free shipping. This box is still available!


Look how colorful it is! The Long Wear nail polish in Trade Winds looks like it will be a cool skin tone color. Fancy.


Revlon Lip Butter in Sorbet (top, fuscia color) and Pink Lemonade (bottom, baby pink color). Love Sorbet for my skin tone. Pink Lemonade doesn’t really show up much more than my natural lip color, so I will only use it in place of chapstick like a tinted balm, or maybe give it to my paler-skinned younger sister. Man o man these feel soo nice and buttery. Sorbet is totally the kind of lip color I’m drawn to. My First lip butters, yay!


I have to say how surprised I am that the Color Stay 16 hr eyeshadow quad in Sea Mist has decent color playoff. I was expecting more chalky, transparent color application. Granted, these are definitely not Urban Decay quality shadows, but good enough that I will actually use this quad. These colors all have a satin sheen, and you can probably tell that the top left color looks like a charcoal grey on my skin, but more like indigo/violet in the palette. That’s okay, I might try using that color as a liner.

I had to give in and try out this collection. “It’s only $12,” I told myself. I think it’s worth it. The eyeshadow quad is $8.49 at CVS, and the lip butters are $7.99 each, plus $7.99 for the nail polish. That’s about $32.50 + tax!

I probably will never use the pale Pink Lemonade lip butter, though. Too bad, but still a good value box. Remember to use a coupon code if you order here!

Beauty Box 5 – June 2013

25 Jun


Beauty Box 5 – $12/month, $100/year subscription

In my June Beauty Box 5 box:

Coolway Shampoo & Conditioner,

2 Just Being Sexy Body Bronzer Packets,

and a Brazen mineral eyeshadow in Skinny Dipping = 6 items.


I immediately took the loose mineral shadow to my bathroom sink and added just enough alcohol to cover all the powder. Let it set for a few hours, the excess alcohol will evaporate and leave behind a solid shadow, much more manageable to use, less messy than a loose shadow.


Here’s a close up after it dried. It has a pretty pink iridescent sheen. I’m going to wear this one to work tomorrow!


I saw BB5 got some flack on Facebook for including a Brazen shadow again and Coolway brand products two months in a row. The Brazen shadows are totally wearable for everyday and they feel like silk, no complaints here. OMG the Coolway hair product from last month is the best thing that has happened to my hair !!! I get it, it’s more exciting to get different brands, but I would personally be grateful to receive more Coolway products.

If you check out Coolway’s Facebook page, they are having a special discount when they launch their new website in a couple of days. I think it’s 25 or 35% off. I want to buy more of the Coolway spray that reduces blow drying time, regularly $25+ 4.99shipping.

With my yearly membership, each box comes to $8.33 – so far I have loved everything I’ve gotten in my 3 months of Beauty Box 5 (referral link – free box for every 5 people you refer). I haven’t used the tanning products, though, but everything else has been worth it so far. The Aveeno in this month’s box is great to toss in my purse or travel bag, too!

I have just discovered this brand literally a week ago and I’m now recommending it as a budget friendly way to build up your makeup collection.

Beauty Box 5 – May 2013

24 May


I came home to this little gift in my mail box! I loved this box! With my $100/year subscription to Beauty Box 5, it’s less than $9 per box.

Model Co black eyeliner full size pencil with built in sharpener.

Ferro Mineral Eyeshadow in Hollywood Blvd (tan with silver shimmer). Code bb5eyecandy for $5 off eye candy eye shadows by 6/15/13. With biting that this container came sealed separately in a plastic bag to prevent any mess during shipping. Much appreciated BB5!

Coolway styling spray- cuts drying time in half to reduce heat damage. Note, that it adds wonderful volume to my straight hair – but beware if your hair doesn’t need any more volume!  Code bb5 by 6/15/13 for 20% off their site.

Jean Pierre tanning towelettes x2. I’ve never used self tanner before, these 2 packets might sit around for a while.

LA Fresh deodorant wipes x2. Oh these are going straight in my bag!

Yay for my 2nd box from Beauty Box 5! I think all the boxes are the same, did anyone else get this box subscription?


Julep Maven Box – May 2013

5 May


Julep Maven May Box – $19.99/month
This was part of the 3 boxes that were delivered the same day!! May Julep, April Glossybox, and my Birchbox order! I guess Julep ships really early in the month, you should have Serb my expression when I saw I received 3 boxes to open! Squee 🙂


This month’s box debuted Julep’s new line of lipsticks, I got a trio of mini colors.



New York Jazz Trio. Sheer shimmery nude, sheer coral, matte red.


Set of 4 hair pins.


2 Nail Polishes – Alice (lavender with shimmer)  and Millie (indigo creme)


I have been wearing the sheer orange lipstick and I really really like it. It smells like tangerine and it looks pretty natural with a few coats. The pale color lipstick is just like a gloss with a hint of shimmer, and the red doesn’t actually look good on me, I will probably give these too my sister. It was a bit of a let down that only one of the 3 lipsticks work for me, and I am not really a fan of Millie, the dark nail polish color. I had high hopes for this high $ value May Julep Maven box. After actually trying the products, it left me feeling kind of “eh” for the first time since my subscription box addiction began. I’m not giving up, though! Let’s see what Julep sends next month….

If you are interested in trying Julep, here is my referral link to help me earn points. Be sure to use discount code FREEBOX to get your intro box for free (+$3.99 for shipping)
