February Beauty Box 5
Happy birthday, BB5! Congrats for the three marvelous years, and here’s to many more! Celebrate with BB5 this month with great make up and skincare.
Whether you like your make up bold or subtle, this eye shadow will become your new go-to. I lean more to the subtle side of the make up spectrum; I used a small eye shadow brush to apply a small amount of the iridescent mineral shadow to the inner corner of my eyelid. It made my eyes look bigger and brighter, and lasted most of the day. Towards the end of my work day, I noticed the shimmer fading. It didn’t irritate my eyes, and came off easily with eye make up remover. #marsk
Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel | Retail: $3.99
I received a shimmery, gold color in my box (140 Fall Mood), and I liked it. I first wore it on all of my fingers. The polish started chipping about 4 days after I applied it. I reapplied it as an accent color on a few fingers in combination with a more neutral color. I liked it better as an accent color. I’m a bit rough on my nails, so I think it lasted well for as long as it could. I’ll be purchasing more colors. #revlon
Bold lip colors are definitely in this year, so keeping your lips smooth and healthy is crucial. Bright red lipstick over chapped lips is never good. This lip balm is hydrating and has a light tint to it, so you can take care of your lips and still make them look good. My lips felt great for several hours, but the color wore away quickly. I like the tin that the balm comes in. You can take it anywhere! #absoluteny
I’m pretty low maintenance, but making sure my make up looks great is really important. The Big Color Pencil made my life a little bit easier. I was able to swipe it on, blend it in, and be on my way. I received a shimmery, gold pencil (Sunkissed). I used it in the center of my upper eyelid toward the lash line to brighten my eye color. I swiped a small amount on, about the width of my iris, and used a shadow brush to smudge it out to the rest of my eyelid for a softer look. The color lasted all day, and washed off with make up remover and face wash. I noticed a little bit of shimmer still on my eyelid after washing my face, but it didn’t irritate my eyes or my skin. #avon
You can’t have beautiful skin without making sure it’s completely clean. This mask tightened, brightened, and deeply cleaned without overdrying my skin. As BB5 instructed, I applied the mask for ten minutes, and removed it in circular motions to exfoliate. I think it’d be a great mask for the morning after you forgot to wash your face before bed. The tingly feeling didn’t bother me much while I had the mask on, but after I removed it, my skin was irritated. My skin is very sensitive, so a tingling mask isn’t always the best option for me. After an hour or so, the irritation subsided and my skin felt great. #glamglow
