Beauty Box 5 - April 2014

This month’s Beauty Box 5 was my favorite yet! Shades of Beauty was this month’s theme, which reminds us to slow down and take a little time for ourselves.
From BH Cosmetics comes an adorable shadow trio from the California Collection. Hollywood is a bright purple, San Fransisco a gorgeous bronze, and Malibu a sunny gold. I love these shades, and love how portable this trio is! Perfect for summer getaways. 

Next up is a brand that’s new to me. Nicka K New York Hydro lipstick in Concerto is a pretty nude peach with a slight gold sheen. A perfect nude lip shade to pair with the California eyeshadow palette. I like the color and slight slippery texture of the lipstick. There is a scent, which seemed to disappear after 10 minutes. The color doesn’t last long, but I don’t mind reapplying anyhow!

Also for lips, there was a Bonne Bell pencil Lip Definer in Boysenberry. I loved seeing Bonne Bell because it reminds me of the start of my love affair with makeup in middle school! This is a pretty dark berry pink shade. I actually had two in my box, and I am saving one for an EPIC giveaway that’s coming up. ;)

To complete your sun kissed Spring look, there are 3 packets(3 days worth) of Jergens Natural Glow gradual sunless tanning lotion.

The last item in this months box is a package of Blum Naturals all-purpose cleansing wipes. These organic and all natural wipes are gentle and have a grapefruit scent. I always need wipes like this for my car or my purse. An absolute must have for moms on the go!

    What a fun box! I need to sign up for something & just see how I like it but then I forget I have it coming & end up rarely using the things in it.
    These colors are gorgeous though!

    Looks like we all got the same products, but different colors of lippies. I got a red. I liked it. I got peppermint oil wipes instead of the citrus. Have you tried them yet? I’m wondering if they really are gentle on the eyes. I need a new eye makeup remover.

      I actually put them in my car for kid clean up moments! I don’t usually use wipes for makeup removal. I’m in love with my Clinique take the day ff balm. I know it said they could be used to makeup removal, but I was leery!

    I really think Beauty Box 5 is getting worse and worse. I hate to be a Debbie Downer but I would be so mad to get that in the mail LOL
