Beauty Box 5 September – Balancing Act #BB5

Beauty Box 5 - September - Balancing Act #BB5

Balancing Act is the theme of Beauty Box 5 for September 2014. My BB5 arrived sometime last week and I was excited because there was a product inside that I couldn’t wait to try! As a reminder Beauty Box 5 is a subscription service delivering 5 beauty samples to your door starting at $12 monthly. Check out what was in my September Beauty Box 5.

Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon is the product I was excited about. I was so rushy to try this shadow stick that I honestly wasn’t concerned with looking at what else was in the box until 2 days later! I received Nicka K New York Eyelight Crayon in Violet Nel013 and most of you know I love purple eye shadow! The shadow stick is creamy and glides on so easy. The color is absolutely gorgeous and super duper pigmented…Mina loves!

These Sally Hansen Toe Spacers are so cute but I don’t use toe spacers for my pedicures. My feet are very small so toe spacers are uncomfortable for me. I’m sure I can find a friend who’ll gladly take these!

I’ve never heard of Natural Style by FUBU but that’s why I love subscription boxes…the introduction of new brands! I’m excited to try the Deep Conditioner & Co-Wash. If you have wavy, curly or dry hair you probably know why. My hair is not happy with constant shampooing so I shampoo twice weekly and co-wash in between. Those ingredients though! Sweet almond oil, virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil, etc are all my hair’s BFF for life!

So this is My Beauty Spot nail polish in I don’t know what color. There is no label or anything indicating the shade. It looks pretty in the bottle but I don’t know what it looks like on my nails or how the formula performs because I couldn’t use it. Not sure if I got a bad batch but the smell is just too strong and I could only open it long enough to snap a photo of the brush. Me sad. 🙁

Chrislie Formulations LashEm 3-in-1 Eye Bright serum is meant to help the skin around your eyes become smoother, brighter and firmer. I’m currently using another eye serum so I’ll let Mama Cupcake try this one out!

    I love Nicka K products so I’d love to try that crayon. Too bad the polish smelled bad because the shade looked gorgeous!

    The eye crayon looks pretty. Weird about the polish… It should have a label and OPI doesn’t stink… Even the old formula isn’t THAT bad. CO washing can be done with just about any conditioner. Actually the cheap stuff works great! VO5 will CO wash your hair like a boss. 😀
