Monday, March 25, 2013 March 2013 Mystery Beauty Box II

Hola!!!!!! I have been suckered into yet again another beauty subscription box! Which I guess it's ok since I am currently only getting ipsy. Now, this one I am blaming entirely on Lindsey from Renolyn Reviews, I watched her unboxing video and just HAD to get this box! You can watch it here but I must warn you, she subscribes to tons of cool stuff and you will want it all! 

This beauty box works as follows:
$34.95 for a one time box purchase or $24.95 if you subscribe to get the mystery box every month. You can click here to sign up but it seems the March box is sold out. I also read from other bloggers that the contents of the boxes vary slightly but seems like everyone is getting a lot of bang for their buck! 

Since I had seen great reviews I decided to subscribe so I git it for $24.95 and free shipping! :) My order came super fast, here is what I got:
I got 5 full sized products in the mystery box and another full sized product along with a foil packet as free samples, read on for the breakdown and how much each item retails for. Aside from the essie nail polish, all of the other brands are new to me which is pretty exciting for my inner makeup junkie! :)
Intelligent Beauty/ Labs - Rescue Restorative Shampoo (9floz.) $16
Intelligent Beauty/ Labs - Rescue Restorative Conditioner (9fl oz.) $18

While I have never heard of this brand before, I am definitely intrigued and will try the shampoo and conditioner. I love the fact that they sent full sized tubes and they sent both the shampoo and conditioner so I can actually try them. I have lots of hair so when I get tiny hair samples I don't even want to try them because I need to be able to use a product at least 2 or 3 times to form a real opinion.

Essie - Vanity Fairest $8

Nail polish = love! I don't have a lot of essie polishes and this looks like a pretty shade. might even be a jelly but I haven't tested it yet. 
Babor - Maxi Definition Lip Liner - Russet (1g.) $15 

This is a pretty color, and will go good with nude lipsticks I think :) Ohhhh and I didn't discover the best part until I was looking up the prize! I thought it was weird that it had 2 caps, well guess what? It has a lip brush on the other end! I did not get a picture of that but you can see it here.
And yes! I have made wait until almost the end to show you the most amazing product in this box! The picture above also shows the essie nail polish which is a full sized bottle, just as reference for the size of this palette!
This beautiful palette has a good sized mirror, 6 eye shadows, a highlighter and a double ended brush which looks and feels superb! Oh and 3 lovely cards that show you different looks!
Skylark - Snowkissed Cashmere Eye Shadow Palette $40

I have not swatched it yet because it just looks too pretty! but it has great reviews online and the colors remind me of an pumped version of the Balm Nude'tude palette. The eye shadows are bigger here but they have that look :)

Last but not least, FREE Samples!
DermStore - Lip Quench (0.28oz.) $12
Dermalogica -Soothing eye make-up remover (foil packet)

So, of my math is working right, the retail value for all these products is $109! I paid $24.95! My verdict? I love you Lindsey! and I am keeping this subscription! I feel it is a great value! Can't wait for next month's box! :)

What do you think of this box?

Thank you for stopping by,
Fiorella :)
