October Beauty Box 5 Review

This is my second Beauty Box 5.

What is it?
It is a monthly beauty box subscription. It costs $12 a month I believe. You get five products each  month. Some full size, some sample size. So far I have been pleased with my selections.
This month I got:
Chapstick hydration Lock , Retail Value $2.99
I like this and will definitely use it
Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink Full Size Retails for 19.99 (sample was not full size)   I probably won't use this as a cheek stain, but I put it on over my chapstick and liked it as lipstick.

Extend your beauty Cosmetic Tool, Retails for $5.49. This tool is to get the last bit of product out of a  hard to reach beauty product. I don't see myself using this. The tip is dishwasher-safe so it could be used over and over. We shall see, but I don't think I'll use it.

I don't usually like or wear the nailpolishes that I get but I have this fantasy that someday I'll grow my nails and be able to  paint them in these pretty colors. I do know in the real world that I will not be growing my nails and even if I did grow them, me painting them would look like a 5 year old did it. I really need to go in and re-do my profile so I don't get nailpolish but I just have not given up on the fantasy yet.
So anyway, this month I got a brand I've never heard of in a color I've never seen. Nanacoco. Color Illusionist..a purple/blue . Retails for $3.95. Full Size Sample.
And the final sample is Lashem Picture Perfect. Retails for $3.95 but this is definitely not full size. It's a pretty tiny sample. It is wrinkle cream, or if you don't have wrinkles yet it says that it can be used as a primer blend.

So, if you add up the products that were full size you are at $12.49 retail.  plus the samples in less than full size. Not sure I'd buy any of this other than the chapstick so maybe not worth it this month but going to the mailbox and finding a little blue/green box with goodies is enough to make me I think I'll keep this for a bit longer. I still find Ipsy to be my favorite.  When it arrives this month I will do a review on it too.
