I had seen some spoilers, so had an idea of what to expect for the April box. I was happy about a few of the items, but of course there is that product or two that bothers me. April's theme is "Shades of Beauty".
BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Palette
I would totally be excited to get this if I hadn’t received it in my ipsy bag last year. I didn’t unwrap it, because I’ll most likely trade or give it away. There are three colours inside: purple, gold and bronze.
Blum Naturals All Purpose Cleansing Wipes
$2.49 / 30 wipes
Love this! I need wipes with me at all times, so this is perfect! Plus, they’re made with natural and certified organic ingredients.
Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick (Begonia)
I’m thrilled to see a full size lipstick and it’s a colour I adore! Kind of a shimmery burgundy/berry shade. I haven’t used it yet, so I’m not sure how pigmented it is or how it feels on the lips. It’s a moisturizing formulation, so I’m sure it will feel good on.
Bonne Bell Lip Liner (Warm Brick)
I’m also really happy to see a lip liner! Lipstick and lip liner go hand-in-hand, so I’m glad BB5 included one.
Jergens Natural Glow - 3 Days To Glow Moisturizer
...And here is the product that bothers me. I actually don’t mind this product, I’ve used it in the past. It’s the packaging I don’t like. What are you gonna do? 4 out of 5 ain’t bad, so I can’t complain.
Overall it’s a very decent box this month. The products are definitely to my liking and preference. I’m very picky with BB5, because I’ve been subscribing for a long time and know they can produce excellent boxes, but sometimes they fall short and some boxes are nothing special. It’s still a box I always recommend if for nothing else the price and value. It’s a very affordable subscription box and if you like trying new products, then it’s the box for you!
What do you think of April’s Beauty Box 5?
