Beauty Box 5 October 2015

We may be a couple month's way from Christmas, but getting beauty boxes in the mail certainly feels like Christmas each month!  This month's Beauty Box 5 was a particularly pretty present because this month's theme was Think Pink.  New to Beauty Box 5?  This monthly treat includes five beauty samples for only $12/mo delivered right to your door.  Not only that, you can get some amazing and exclusive deals in their online shop.  Ready to see this month's pink pretties?  Let's take a look!

beauty box 5 october 2015 - the beauty puff

Happy Hands HappyFace Makeup Cleansing Cloth ($3.99)

With the influx of eco-friendly beauty products, it's no wonder these type of clothes have become so popular.  With the simple addition of water, you can rid your face of the day's makeup with this little cloth.  Since it is machine washable, I washed and dried it prior to use, and it worked perfectly!  This cloth is big enough to get the job done, but certainly a great size to throw in a bag if you're going on a short trip.  And the biggest perk of all (at least for me) - it's pink!

Ferro Cosmetics - Pink Rhinestone Kabuki Brush ($25)

Talk about glam.  I don't think I've ever had a rhinestone studded makeup brush before.  I do however, love kabuki brushes.  This travel-friendly brush can be used for a multitude of powder products including powder foundation, bronzer, blush, you name it.  I love that these type of brushes can be neatly tucked into a makeup bag in my purse for on-the-go touch ups.  Even if you prefer to leave it at home, this pretty pink brush would look gorgeous out on a vanity.  It's like a little decoration all on its own!

styli-style balm stick - the beauty puff

Styli-Style Perfect Pout Balm Stick ($4.99)

Colors varied between boxes this month but I got this lip balm in Deep Berry.  I was so surprised with the pigmentation of this product!  Even applied lightly the color is gorgeous.  This is the ease/convenience of a balm with the color payoff of a lipstick all in one.  It can be applied a bit sheer, but with this shade in particular, it's hard not to get good color payoff.  Above I have swatched it lightly (left) and swiped a few times (right).  You can see how vibrant the color is.  It's a true fall berry tone.  This balm comes in a variety of shades so you can find one to suit any look or season!

Knotty Hair Ties ($4)

I don't know about you, but these are the only type of hair ties I use.  I actually make my own but I love having more, particularly in pink!  This type of hair tie is especially gentle on hair without pulling or tugging and causing breakage.  I also wear them to bed with my hair up and they're very comfortable.  I've had typical hair ties get stuck/knotted in my hair a few too many times to go back to them.  I have never had that happen with this style hair tie so I'll definitely enjoy these!

Nubar Nail Polish Mini in Pinktober ($4.99)

Who can say no to pink nail polish?  This is a custom shade created for Beauty Box 5 - a versatile, classic soft pink.  This may be a mini size, but I can honestly say I don't remember if I have ever finished a full size nail polish.  This would also be a good size if you needed to travel with a polish.  Nothing like some quick touch-ups!  Speaking of quick, this polish dries really fast. I applied two coats and by the time one coat was applied, it was practically dry!  I not only like the color and quick drying time of this polish, but it is also 3 Free which is especially important to me in choosing polishes.  This will fit right in with my collection.

This month's box had a value of over $40!  Don't miss out on another month of Beauty Box 5... be sure to sign up at:
