This box had me immediately interested. It had a fake silisponge, which meant I didn't have to buy one myself!


I loved this box so much...mostly because of the COLORS.


Theme sheet...I was interested in their concept of 'Best in Beauty.'


Info card.


Bubble Blender (Silicone Makeup Applicator) ($15.00) - I really wanted to like this applicator. I love the idea of not wasting your makeup (even though it took me a while to get used to the amount I was supposed to use). This really just spread my foundation around rather than letting it sink into your skin and becoming a second skin. I ended up having to use a brush to finish blending the foundation in, which made the Bubble Blender useless. High hopes, low results.


Mud Treatment (Hydrating) ($15.00) - I was a little confused when I first saw this. I thoguht it might be a weird highlighter but it turns out you can use any liquid to make a mask out of this. It suggests juices, milks, yogurt, etc..but I'm a fan of just using water. It says it's a hydrating mask but it also says the mask is to be used after you hydrate your skin. What good is a hydrating mask that has to be used after hydration? 


Natural Eyeshadow (5 Star Fab) ($12.50) - Described as 'one part unicorn, one part mermaid, and three parts magic combine for a wash of rainbow color and all around total gorgeousness.' I'm looking for the rainbow in this lilac shifting eyeshadow. This is a gorgeous shade, perfect for a halo eye or a pastel look, but I only see purple and pink here.

Cream Luminizer (Illume) ($18.00) - When I saw how deep this was in the container, every thought around 'that's gonna be way too deep' went through my head. I was so wrong, though! I'm not usually a huge fan of these gel highlighters for my cheeks, I feel like they pull at my foundation. This is a really pretty rosy gold highlight if you like the gel/cream highlights.

Lip + Cheek Gelle (V.I.Pretty) ($18.00) - A orangey pink lip and cheek color. Again like with the gel highlights, I'm not a fan of gel blushes. This is gorgeous on the lips, though, and it feels nice without being too sticky (note, there is some stickiness to it but not anything like the 00's glosses). I think their lip + cheek gelles are really good to throw in your purse to add a bit of pigment on your lips without doing a lot of work.


Swatches L-R: V.I.Pretty, Illume, 5 Star Fab


The value of this box was $78.50, well over the box cost. I liked all three of the makeup products, which was a huge win. Overall, I don't know if this was the 'Best in Beauty,' but it was still a pretty good box!

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