Beautybox 5 September 2015 | Unveiling and Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Each month BB5 curates a theme-based beauty box, and September is about being fearless and flawless in one's makeup and fashion.
Here's what's inside the box:
1) Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass Lip + Cheek Stain (Deluxe Sample. Full size $22.99 for 0.35 oz.): This is a cherry red lip and cheek stain that reminds me of Benefit Benetint in application and color. I have yet to use it on my cheeks or lips, but it did show impressive wear-time with my arm swatch. #elizabethmott

According to Elizabeth Mott,

That’s right, we said it. Tints & Sass is the only head turning lip and cheek stain that gives you fail proof color every time! Our non-drying formula is long lasting, even after a power lunch and yoga session, and was created to accommodate every second of a gal’s busy schedule.

Smells like delicious cherries! Our formula is not only long lasting, it’s absolutely irresistible and keeps the boys coming back for more!

Check out the non-drip and spill proof bottle, because there is nothing worse than staining anything other than your gorgeous lips and cheeks!

Want a more dramatic look? Layer Tints & Sass to transform that dewy color to a red-hot siren lip with rosier cheeks.

2) Beautiful Nutrition Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment (Deluxe Sample. Full size $10.00 for 13.3 oz.): This is a clarifying rinse for the removal of product buildup in the hair. It is formulated to eliminate frizz, add shine, seal cuticles, maintain a healthy scalp and seal in moisture. #beautifulnutrition
Restart the clock on healthy hair.  Over time, product buildup causes hair to look dull and lifeless.  Lemon Rinse Gentle Clarifying Treatment helps return hair to its natural glory with active lemon extracts that gently cleanse and tone, rapidly restoring weightless body and shine.
