I think Beauty Box Five is one of the better beauty subscriptions around. I have had the opportunity to check out a couple of the boxes for myself and I am always pleased. The assortment of items are really fun, and the total value of the products always exceeds the $12 / month price.
Today I am going to be sharing with you all my December Beauty Box Five box, and the theme for this month's box is 'smoky season". So fitting, since glam smoky eyes are all the rave this time of year. The products I received in my box covered all the bases for achieving a smoky eye, and then some. Not to mention, all five of the items are full size too. Needless to say, I was not disappointed.
OFRA Shimmer Eye Shadow: I am loving this shimmery grey hue, which is called "Foil". It has a velvet smooth texture, it's easy to blend, and it's super pigmented. A great shade for smokey eyes. I just realized, I don't have a proper home for this refill pan. Must get a Z-palette soon! (Full Size: $12.00)
The Beauty Crop Glamazon Stick: This light gold highlighting crayon is the perfect touch to any look. I apply it to the inner corner of the eyes, tip of nose, and tops of the cheeks and it adds a soft luminous effect to the skin, that doesn't look overdone. (Full Size: $22)
Prestige Cosmetics Total Intensity Eyeliner: This black pencil eyeliner is super creamy and pigmented. It's easy to smudge, and pretty long-wearing. (Full Size: $5.95)
So Fresh So Clean Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes: These hypoallergenic wipes are lovely. They are gentle on the skin, don't really have much of a fragrance, and they effectively remove my makeup without leaving behind an oily residue. (Full Size: $2.99)
Beauty Box Five Blender Brush: The dense hairs and tapered design of the brush makes it easy to apply and blend eye shadows precisely, with little effort. I don't think I have a brush like this in my collection. It's pretty nifty, and I am enjoying it so far. (Full Size: $10)
