My Beauty Army box for June 2013 just arrived, and it is just chock full of exciting things!
What's Beauty Army? Beauty Army is an awesome beauty box program that is $12 a month. This is the ONLY subscription service that allows you to CHOOSE your samples, so you never end up with something that you don't want to try. Beauty Army also has the option to skip a month without cancelling, or to have one of their stylists choose the items for you. You can choose up to SIX items each month. If you are interested, here is a LINK to their site, and if you use this link, I receive credit towards receiving a free box (and then you can refer people, too!).
Ok, enough about this awesome service- let's get on to the good stuff!
|The insert card.|
|Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Shampoo, 1 oz deluze sample size; retail value $2.25. Available HERE, 1 8 oz bottle for $22, or on BA's website HERE, 2 8 oz bottles for $36.|
|GG Gatsby Raise Volume Shampoo; .5 fl oz sample, retail value $0.59. Available HERE, or at BA's store, $9.99 for 8.4 oz.|
|Yes to Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment, 0.1 fl oz foil packet; retail value $4.00. Available HERE, or from BA's store; $19.99 for 0.5 fl oz.|
GRADE: 3/5 (feels good, triggers my allergies)
|Addiction NV Gel Liner Pot in Starstruck (silver), full size, retail value $16.00. Available HERE (currently offering 70% off everything on their site, making this liner $4.80; use coupon code NV70).|
|Swatch of Starstruck (indoors with flash- it's seriously bucketing out!)|
This beautiful silver/grey shade is super creamy. I tried this on, and I like this one a LOT better than the blue one I received last month. It doesn't seem to be quite as creamy, and glides on really well, and has some serious staying power! I love me some gel liner!
Let me add that this company MAY be going out of business- I went to find their site today and had a farewell message posted on the home page, but I could still get into the store. Shop at your own risk!
|Mini Kittour 30mL Travel Bottle in clear, retail value $3. Sets of 2 (one PET and one HDPE plastic) are available from BA's site for $6.|
I seriously loved the little Mini Kittour container that I received last month, and I was excited to receive this one too- I love to have ways to save samples for multiple uses, and cute ways to travel (if I actually ever go anywhere!). I plan to put my GG Gatsby shampoo in this, to hopefully squeeze a second application out of the packet. What a great idea- to have little sample sized jars, to save the excess from a foil packet!
GRADE:4/5 (nice to have but the smaller pots are more handy IMHO
|Colorsmash Hair Shadow in Je Ne Sai Quoi (bright pink), 0.03 oz sample size, retail value $4.09. Available HERE, or on BA's website, $15 for .11 oz.|
My hair is pretty dark, so I was curious as to whether or not the hair chalk would even show up, but I should not have worried. This is seriously cool stuff, and my favorite item in this month's box! I have to see if I can find a more inexpensive alternative to the hair shadow, though- If I find one, do you want to see a tutorial? Let me know! Just one little suggestion, though- wear gloves when applying, because this stuff got ALL over my hands, but it DID wash off with soap and water.
|My Beauty Army June 2013 Box|
Here is this month's financial breakdown, but remember- an item only has value if you love it, or found out that you hate it- something that you would never use, and never wanted has NO value at all in my opinion!
Nelson J Beverly Hills Argan Oil 7 Shampoo: $2.25
GG Gatsby Raise Volume Shampoo: $0.59
Yes to Blueberries Eye Firming Treatment: $4.00
Addiction NV Gel Liner Pot$ 16.00 (or $4.80 if you include the current sale)
Mini Kittour bottle: $3.00
Colorsmash Hair Shadow: $4.09
Total Retail Value: $18.73, if you cound the sale price, $29.93 if you don't.
Total Out of Pocket: $12.00, shipping included.
Not the best valued box, but still more than I paid, and I received some really cool stuff that I really like. I'm a satisfied customer (but Ipsy is still my favorite!)
I hope you enjoyed this review of my Beauty Army box, and feel free to check them out if you like what you see! Tell me- what did YOU receive this month?
Until next time, my lovelies- stay Only Average!
