Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass Lip + Cheek Stain (deluxe sample; estimated value $7)

This lip and cheek stain has amazing staying power.  I swatched it on my hand and it was still visible the day after!  I've never worked with a lip and cheek stain before but this formula was very easy to apply and work with on the skin.  It is easily sheered out or built up, depending on your taste.  I also really like the sponge tip which really helps with precise application.  This type of product will be great for the cooler months to give a fresh finish on the skin without emphasizing dry areas.  I'm looking forward to trying this out more!

This was without a doubt my favorite product in the box.  This unique formula gets applied to your hair after shampoo/conditioner and smells amazing!  It is a serum, but it is very light and easy to apply.  You simply leave it in for a few seconds and rinse out.  It prevents frizz, adds shine, moisturizes and removes excess build up, revealing beautifully healthy hair.  I love products that work "behind the scenes" without adding any added weight or greasiness to my hair.  Also, it doesn't take all day to achieve!  In the fall and winter I use my hair dryer a lot so this will definitely come in handy to keep my hair in check!

Harvey Prince Mini Roller in Sincerely (full size $21)

I love Harvey Prince perfumes.  I have their scents in Yogini, Hello and their Signature Scent.  I love this brand because of their ingredients and variety of beautiful scents so I was excited to have a new addition to my collection!  The Harvey Prince Mini Rollers are a fabulous size for in your purse or travel.  It's also a great way to collect their various scents to have different options.  Sincerely is an exotic scent with notes such as sandalwood, rose, orange flower and freesia.  Love this one.

Bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Snowflake (full size $19.99)

Ballapierre is another brand I am familiar with.  I used to have another one of their shimmer powders in Hurly Burly (a light purple).  Snowflake is a versatile shimmery white.  It's great for highlighting or adding dimension and brightness to the eyes.  This shimmer powder can be applied lightly to add a more subtle glow or layered for intensity (the swatch above is a more concentrated application).  I would lightly layer this over dark eyeshadows or apply to the inner corner of the eyes for instant brightness.  This will be beautiful for the holidays!

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Eye Crayon in Hang Over - shades vary (full size $14)

I've been gravitating toward shadow crayons and jumbo eye pencils a lot lately so I was excited to see a product like this included!  I've tried only a couple things from Be a Bombshell Cosmetics, but they have excellent pigmentation.  This shadow crayon is creamy, easily blendable and the perfect color for fall.  This will definitely become a staple over the next few months!

Beauty Box 5 is $12/mo but you can also choose a quarterly or yearly subscription to save even more.  What do you think of September's box?  Want to subscribe?  Visit:
