Jingle Belles ft. Beauty Box 5 December 2015

In a season of giving it never hurts to save a few treats for yourself.  At the same time, you don't want to break the bank when there are so many other things to get this time of year!  Beauty Box 5 is only $12/mo with free shipping in the U.S. so you don't have to feel guilty when that pretty little box arrives each month!  You get five beauty samples (this month all full size products!) and you can further indulge in the Beauty Box 5 shop which has all sorts of goodies.  This month's box definitely spoiled subscribers - it's amazing!  Let's take a look at the Smoky Season box.

beauty box 5 december 2015 - the beauty puff

So Fresh So Clean Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($2.99)

The first thing that caught my eye was the package of So Fresh So Clean makeup remover wipes.  This may not seem like an exciting item to you, but having just moved, I am living for this type of product since I haven't sorted through my cleansers.  These wipes are awesome!  It was the first thing I opened and got use out of.  They removed all of my eye makeup in one swipe and left my skin feeling fresh and clean all in one step.  Huge time-saver!  I'm so excited they included a full size pack so I can enjoy these many times over.

The Beauty Crop Glamazon Stick ($22)

I love a multi-purpose product and this Glamazon Stick is just that.  This smooth crayon can add brightness wherever you choose - eyes or cheeks!  It's a convenient size and perfect for travel so you don't have to pack an additional brush for highlighting.  I really like that you can use this on the eyes or face, as intense highlighting isn't for everyone.  I'll definitely be trying this for some festive holiday looks!

Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity Eyeliner in Deepest Black ($5.95)
*colors vary

I was stunned when I saw the price of this eyeliner - so affordable but such amazing quality!  The style of this liner looks exactly like my Urban Decay 24/7 liners and is just as creamy and long-lasting.  I had trouble removing the swatches from my hand, it was that good.  It glides on effortlessly and can be smudged for a soft, smoky look.  I don't think I'll ever buy an expensive eyeliner again!  This just goes to show you don't have to break the bank to get a gorgeous, long-lasting look.  So glad Beauty Box 5 introduced me to this gem!!

Beauty Box 5 Blender Brush ($10)

I love unique brushes and I have nothing like this brush in my collection.  This is a blender brush that is tapered so it's perfect for crease colors or even working around hard-to-reach areas for concealing - inner eye area/nose etc.  I hope Beauty Box 5 comes out with more brushes to add to this collection because this brush is super soft!

Ofra Shimmer Eye Shadow in Iron ($13.50)
*colors vary

You've probably read it before, but I am obsessed with gray shadows this time of year.  I love that I received this shadow in the color Iron.  It's a stunning sparkly gray that can be sheered out or layered for intensity for an evening out.  I've never tried Ofra's shadows so I'm glad I finally got the chance!  I'm always looking for versatile shades to incorporate in my collection.  This one will get a ton of use!

Total Value: ~$54!

Talk about a nice holiday gift - Beauty Box 5 included all full size products this month and I will use every single one.  They really had a great balance of practical and fun items this month.  Not a bad one in the bunch!  Make sure to subscribe to Beauty Box 5 at:

Happy holidays!
