Beauty Box 5 October 2014 | Unveiling and Review

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Beauty Box 5 has, yet again, created a wonderful box filled with products that you will actually use!

In October, BB5 sought inspiration from products that welcome glamorous simplicity as the weather cools down:

We lust after long routines that promise perfection, but sometimes less really is more. As you're getting cozy while Autumn settles in, welcome glamorous simplicity. Show off flawless skin with hydrated lips, add a few pops of color, and you've got all it take to look pulled together. Maybe you woke up like this or maybe you didn't-- we won't tell--but either way, you'll be impeccably polished and fresh-faced in no time.
1) Nanacoco Nail Polish in Surfer's Dream (Full size. Retail $3.95 0.5 oz.): Pretty polish, please! We love these high-quality lacquers for their thick professional formulas. BB5 suggests letting each coat dry thoroughly before adding more in order to get the longest lasting mani and pedi. Surfer's Dream is a gorgeous rich blue that will have you thinking of blue skies and warm weather! #nanacoco
2) Bellapierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain in Pink (Full size. Retail $19.99 0.176 oz.): Unlike traditional stains that are hard to apply, this oil-free Cheek and Lip Stain will finish off any look with great ease and is super blend-able. Available in Pink or Coral. With your finger apply a small amount to your lips as you would with any lip balm. Apply a small amount to apples of your cheeks and blend for a just-pinched hue. This is such a lovely pink shade that applies easily and looks stunning! This is perfection for a natural pink pout and cheeks when you want that polished look in no time at all! #bellapierre

3) ChapStick Dual Ended Hydration Lock (Full size. Retail $2.99. Full review here): Dual-ended hydration lock day & night ChapStick® Hydration Lock Moisturize & Renew "delivers advanced anti-aging formulas. The Moisturize end contains the antioxidant CoQ10 and hyaluronic spheres for long-lasting hydration, while the Renew end contains natural butters like shea and mango to soften, condition and revitalize lips." ChapStick keeps coming out with new and amazing lip balms, but these new Dual Ended Hydration Lock balms are my favorite! They are so emollient and ultra hydrating, and leave my lips unbelievably soft, supple and silky smooth!

5) Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool (Retail $5.49 6 in.): The Extend Your Beautyf 6" Cosmetic Tool is a money saving tool that will provide the consumer with every last drop of their product.  This amazing tool is able to go inside small openings where no other tool on the market can go. Tired of throwing away your expensive beauty products such as makeup foundation, eye creams, face lotion, etc when it is no longer easy to get out? Consumer Reports did a study that shows you throw away 15-25% of  lotion like consistencies when it is no longer easy to get out. Think about how much money you are throwing into the trash. The Spatty will allow you to get all of your product and save you money. It is also inexpensive. The Extend Your Beautyf 6" Cosmetic Tool can also be used to help with decorating the details on cakes/cookies/etc. What is not to love about this revolutionary tool! *Contains small parts. Keep out of reach of young children. 

I have wanted this ingenious tool for quite a while. This cute little spatula allows you do get every last little bit of product out of their bottles and jars. Not only do you stretch the budget by avoiding excessively wasted products, but it also gets the containers recycle ready! #spattydaddy
Overall Assessment: October has proven to be a wonderful month in the land of BB5. It featured a fun, yet practical, assortment of products. I will use everything that I received, and I am thrilled to finally have the Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool so that I can empty my skincare bottles and jars with ease! I can't wait to see what's in store for November!
