Beauty Box 5 February Reveal

Hi, dolls!  I'm really excited about this month's BB5 reveal-- it's only February and they're already killin' it! 
For anyone not familiar with BeautyBox5it is a monthly beauty box subscription that selects five of the industry's must haves and delivers them straight to your door!  There are various subscription options to chose from, but my lucky self receives a complimentary box each month in exchange for sharing the goodies with all of you lovelies :)
This month's theme was "Put Your Best Kiss Forward" and it's my favorite one yet.  BB5 put together their very own "Kiss Kit", guaranteed to make your lips look and feel irresistible this season.

Style Essentials Lip Glow
Retail: $4.00
Described as a lightly tinted balm that glides on sheer and is also moisturizing.  PS. It has a sweet candy scent that smells amazing.

Jean Pierre Cosmetics Pink Moisturizing Lip Mask
Retail: $5.00 (set of 5)
Lip masks are all the rage on instagram these days and I have been DYING to try one!    They use collagen, vitamins, and minerals to help restore moisture to dry lips.  Just lay this over your lips for 15 minutes to later reveal softer, smoother lips.   
Tint Beauty
The Unicorn Lippie and Liner Collection
The collection makes its debut in this month's BB5 box, and the duo make for a killer pout.  The liner is smooth and creamy, and the lippie is a heavily pigmented matte liquid. The shade is Make Believe and I'm already obsessed with it.  Very natural looking and it's really, really long wearing. 
So Susan Colour Hybrid
Retail: $17.50
Described as a rich cream- mousse pigment that adds fullness to your lips, it can also be used to add a bit of color to your cheeks. 
This has been my absolute favorite box since I started receiving them a couple of years ago.  "The Kiss Kit" was such a cute idea, and it just so happens lip (/eye) products are my weak spot.  Plus, they graciously sent four of the five products in full size- which was AWESOME.  BB5 is kicking it up a notch and I can't wait to see what they do next!

Beauty Box 5: December Reveal

Merry Christmas Eve Eve!!  I hope everyone is having a safe and happy holiday season. 

It's also that time for this month's BB5 unboxing!  Who's excited? ;) 

For anyone not familiar with BeautyBox5it is a monthly beauty box subscription that selects five of the industry's must haves and delivers them straight to your door!  There are various subscription options to chose from, but my lucky self receives a complimentary box each month in exchange for sharing the goodies with all of you lovelies :)

The theme of the box changes each month, and this December was "Just add confetti".  A totally appropriate mind set to help celebrate the holiday season and all of its festivities!  Scroll down to find out which party must haves BB5 selected.

Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer
Retail: $22.95

This was lightweight, liquid illuminator is supposed to provide the perfect amount of highlight for any occasion.  What's also great is that it's full size!

Neutrogena Rainbath
Retail: $7.24

A combo of fruit, spices, and herbs, this scent will definitely wake you up in your morning shower and get your senses tingling!

Amlactin Cerapuetic Restoring Body Lotion
Retail: $2.99

I've used Amlactin before and it's good for these colder months.  The body lotion contains Amlactin's patented Ultraplex in combination with ceramics to help relieve dry skin.  

Professional Freezing Finish Spray 
Retail: $3.00

A girl can never have too much hairspray.  How did BB5 know I needed more?? 

Hikari Lip Gloss in Fate
Retail: $13.00

Hikari is becoming a favorite of mine.  I first learned about it through BB5 and I've liked most of their past picks.  This gloss is nice because it's formula is advertised as semi- matte, so it's well pigmented, but you can still play around with the intensity.  Plus I'm a huge fan of neutrals so this is a color I'll wear often.

Thanks BB5 for being super generous this month! :)  Four out of the five products were full size which was really awesome, and each one is one I'll get a lot of use out of this season.  Definitely looking forward to next month's box! 

Do you subscribe to BB5?  Are you interested in trying it?

Bouffants & Broken Hearts Coloring Book from Kendra Dandy

Lately I've been hearing a lot about the benefits of coloring.  Aside from it being a creative outlet, experts say it can actually help you to distress.  Not that my life is exactly full of stressors, but I could definitely use some R&R now and then, and the fashion inspired Bouffants & Broken Hearts Coloring Book by Kendra Dandy was too cute to pass up! 
Kendra Dandy is a popular graphic artist and fashion designer, whose prints you may recognize from places like Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters.  
Dandy's 75 page book has a variety of  pop art patterns like mini hot dogs, funky flamingos, and 60s-inspired bouffants.  The book is fun because it has something for every mood! 

I loved the lipsticks and bouffant pages for when I was feeling creative and had fun putting together stylish color combos.  Patterns like the exotic birds were great for when I just wanted to chill out and do something carefree.   

My next masterpiece :p
Overall, it's a fun way to kick back and check out of reality for a bit.  And definitely a fun gift idea for the fashion lover on your list!
Have you tried coloring to relax?  Does the Bouffants & Broken Hearts Coloring Book make you wanna try it?
