Beauty Box 5 - August 2012

August 30, 2012

This was a bit of a confusing month, at least for me. I was in shock when I looked at the contents of this months box and saw the amount of duplicates. A mistake? Or just generosity? Either way, I am pleased with this month's Beauty Box 5 and I can't wait for the next one!

Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that is based out of Texas. BB5 is available to United States and Canadian residents. They deliver 4-5 samples to your door for $12 per month, with discounted prices for quarterly and yearly memberships. 
Let's get into my box, shall we?
2 different visible duplicates right away!
Swatches are in a different order below.
Top to Bottom: 
These two colours are definitely not typical colours that I would choose. Both very brown and quite rich. I love how pigmented they are though, almost liquid lipstick. I will have a full review with swatches on my lips, once I give them a few tries. Beauty Box 5 said they go for $35 but on Sephora they are $42. 
Blinc Kiss Me Eye liner in Black - .21oz - $26
I have received this previously in a Beauty Box 5 and I enjoyed it. It's a little weird to be receiving the same product twice in 3 months but I am still pleased to recieve it. I have a review coming up very soon.
I am always a bit weary of illuminating and highlighting face products but this doesn't look too harsh. I am interested in trying it out though.
I am usually not a fan of little sample packages like these but I am happy to receive these. I've really loved the products from Blum that have come in these past boxes and I hope for more samples by them.
I've been in the market for an eye cream for a while so I was pleased to receive this. I have heard of this brand before but never tried any products.
So that's my box, what do you think about it?
