Ever After Monthly Box - February 2016

Warning, photo heavy post.

What is the Ever After Monthly Box?: Ever After Polish's Monthly Box is a subscription box with features something new from Ever After each month. Each box will include one full size exclusive polish, one full size bath product, and one mini bath sample and/or mini polish.

How Much is the Ever After Monthly Box?: The box is $14/month plus shipping ($4 for US). The preorder is between the 15th and 22nd of the month, and the box ships out after that.

Instead of being a typical subscription where it is auto-deducted each month, you can either buy one box (during the availability time) or choose to be invoiced monthly. I of course chose the second option, so each month I receive an invoice and pay it though PayPal.


I know some of you are wishing you had bought this box. Isn't this the most amazing polish?



The theme for February was Baristas Brew, and as a coffee lover, I was very excited!


Info card! Who doesn't love info cards? :)


Orange Mocha Frappucino - a rich and creamy coffee color filled with sparkle. 
The formula is so wonderful, it's my first Ever After, so I was very curious to play with their polishes and products! This is a two coat to opaque, which is shown below, with one coat of glossy top coat to add some shine!


This is Orange Mocha Frappucino in just everyday natural lighting. You can see a bit of the holographic, but it's not entirely in your face. I love how this nude looks and how it's a bit mysterious. 


In direct lighting (not a lot of it), the linear holographic shines so brightly. You can also see how the base color changes when your lighting changes. 


A more up close that's a bit blurry, but this shows very well how there is the slightest orange tint in this polish.


Extras:

Coffee & Cream Mask - a relaxing blend of Milk and Clay with specks of coffee to brighten and energize your skin.
Oh my, this mask smells so amazing. I am a huge fan of masks (they have become my favorite bath item to come in a box) partly because they feel so good, but also partly because they indulge my love of neat messiness. This mask does a great job making your skin tingle and feel like you're ready to take on the world. Did I mention it also smells wonderful, because it's an important thing to smell good!

Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans - to munch on and enjoy while pampering yourself with all things coffee!
I have now found the perfect snack to eat while blogging, and it's these! I am the worlds biggest fan of  dark chocolate, which these are, and I love coffee. It's a match made in heaven!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Cuticle Oil - your cuticles will thank you for this coffee scented oil rich with avocado jojoba, sweet almond, and grapeseed oil.
I don't think I had ever tried a cuticle oil in a dropper before, but I have figured out I like it! It nicely applies the perfect amount for your cuticles with a bit for your nails as well. It smells great, and that's coming from someone who is not a fan of PSL.


Overall, I absolutely loved this box! I had already gotten an idea of what would be in the box from the Ever After Facebook Group and from the sales page, but it's still great to get fun goodies like this! The April pre-order is already over, but make sure to check it out for the May box on May 15th.

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
