I made a promise to myself that I would get this posted while it was still October, thus making it still relevant. If you look at the date of this post, you'll see that it is, in fact, Nov. 2nd and I unfortunately didn't meet my goal. However, as long as I get this up before the November 2013 Beauty Box ships, I'll be happy! I was charged for it on the 1st, so I'm assuming it's going to ship out sometime next week, therefore, I'm pretty confident that I'll get this up in time. On a side note, it's NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)! This month, a lot of people will be trying to knock out an entire 50,000 word novel! In a month. I've tried the last couple years, but I kind of give up, so to speak, about halfway through. Not sure if it's a problem of motivation or lack of writing ability or what, but I'm not sure I'm cut out to write a novel in one month. We'll see if I try this year; I know it's already two days in and I haven't started, so I better decide soon!
But that's not why you're reading this post! You're reading it to see what kind of goodies I got in my October 2013 Blush Mystery Beauty Box!
As always with Blush Mystery Boxes, you get two free samples with your order! This month I got:
As always, Blush included a card detailing all the items in the box, including one full side dedicated to this months featured product: the Chella Skin Care Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace.
Next is the Karin Herzog Vitamin H Cream.
Up next is another full sized product, a Mirabella Mineral Highlighting Powder.
Another product that I generally liked but had some color issues with was the Myface Cosmetics Lip Pop Gloss.
Unfortunately, this next product was kind of a disppointment.
This next product is definitely the most interesting out of the bunch.
And now for the final product!
Here's some swatches of the Chella highlighter, the Myface lip gloss, and the Mirabella powder (in that order):
Overall, not the most exciting of boxes. Out of the 8 products, 5 were full sized and only 3 were deluxe/travel sized, so that was nice, and the total value of the products in my box were $124, which is definitely not bad at all, especially since I only paid $24.95 for it, including shipping. The biggest disappointment with this box would be the lack of color-matching for my skin tone (especially since, like I said, you do fill out a beauty profile so it's not like they don't know) and some "repeat" products like the foot cream. Do I still think the box is worth being subscribed to? Yes, definitely. If you're interested in signing up, I suggest you do so quickly since November's box apparently has a value of $252, the highest they've ever had...which is pretty awesome and now I can't wait to get it!
Thanks for reading! <3!
