My April Beauty Box 5 ~ Unwrapped

Hi lovelies!  This month's Beauty Box 5 is such a fun, springtime one!  Not familiar? Beauty Box 5 is a monthly subscription service that delivers 5 cosmetic samples to your door for $12 a month. {Click to see what I got!}

Such great goodies, amiright?

Nicka K New York | Hydro Lipstick in Begonia
I really love the color and shimmer to this lipstick.  The color is super flattering to anyone and is a great bright neutral.  It goes on smoothly and doesn't fade away fast.  The quality of it is far superior to its itty bitty pricetag.  {Retail Value ~ $4.99}

Blum Naturals | All Purpose Cleansing Wipes
These are so cute!  The little canister is the perfect size to throw in your beach bag (or purse!) and the little wipes work really well.  They're perfect for removing makeup or just freshening your face up.  {Retail Value ~ $2.49}

BH Cosmetics | California Collection Eyeshadow Palette
These colors are so vibrant and pigmented!  I really love the gold and copper with a little swipe of purple along the lash lines to add some whimsy to my eyes.  {Retail Value ~ $3}

Bonne Bell | Lip Definer in Apple Cider
I love the color of this liner, it actually works really well with the lipstick in the box, too!  My only complaint is it didn't come with a cap, so the end was a little smooshed.  I just wiped it off with an alcohol-soaked cotton ball to get any debris off of it and pushed it into shape.  It makes for a perfect neutral lip; just line and fill in lips with it and apply a lip balm over it!  {Retail Value ~ $3.95}

Jergens | Natural Glow - 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer
As much as I dislike foil packets, I really like the clever marketing here.  Use one packet each day for three days and that's all you need for a natural golden glow!  However, my skin is more on the fair side and certainly not medium to tan (as I received), so I'm not going to be trying these so early in the season.  Perhaps after I get some summer sun I'll give these a try, but I think the difference would be far too noticeable and far less natural right now.  {Retail Value ~ $2.10}
