The Blush Mystery Beauty Box (Bag) has become one of my favorite subscriptions! This month, the featured curator is Kimberly Klotz-Kolodziejski, co-founder of Chella. If you’re an ipsy subscriber, you’ve probably received a Chella product or two over the last several months. I like the brand so far. So what was in this month’s box? Take a look!
These were my samples. Unfortunately the dremu oil leaked and was completely empty by the time it got to me. The small bag contained all the liquid so it didn’t get on any other products. The other sample is Specific Beauty Night Treatment Complex Step 3.
The featured product this month was Chella Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace. I actually already have this product from ipsy, but I’m so glad to have another! I watched a video on the blush site showing several ways to use the pencil so I’m using it constantly now! I like multipurpose products. I mainly use it under eyebrows, down my nose, and on my cheekbones and blend it with an eyeshadow brush.
The reason I decided to get the October Blush box is this next product: butter London nail lacquer in Kerfuffle! I’ve wanted to try butter London for a long time. This color is a peachy pink and seems more suitable to spring than fall, but we’re not bound by the rules of fashion & beauty. I’ll use this polish next time I paint my nails. Super excited it was included!
Next is Karin Herzog Vit-A-Kombi 1 daily moisturizer. That’s what the info card says, but my product actually says VITAMIN H across it. The cream is bright yellow gold and feels incredibly moisturizing. I like it!
Myface Cosmetics Lip Pop Gloss didn’t impress me. It looks pretty enough on, and it’s basically a sheer gloss. None of the bright pink pigment transfers onto my lips. It feels smooth and isn’t sticky. No smell or taste, but it’s just kind of a ‘meh’ product that I think most supermarkets would carry. I prefer lip products that make me feel pampered.
Theraplex Ft Exfoliating Emollient is supposed to restore softness and comfort to severely rough dry hands and feet. I have super dry hands and feet so this is perfect for me! This looks like a full size product. I can’t wait to use it!!
Talika Lipocils Expert is an interesting product. The applicator shown on the package is a like a mascara wand with a soft applicator tip. The sample only came with a soft applicator. It’s supposed to enhance your lashes. I may not use this one because I have sensitive eyes.
Miracle Skin Transformer Face SPF 20 is a 5 in 1 tinted skin enhancer. I got the Medium shade so I’ll probably give it away to someone who isn’t so pale! 🙂
The final product is one I was really excited about, but mine came broken. Mirabella Mineral Highlighting Powder is basically a blush. It’s beautiful! And it’s full size, which I think is $38. I received Shimmer Rose and that’s probably the color I would’ve picked for myself. Since mine was broken, blush is sending a replacement. My account says I’ll be getting the Latte Swirl shade this time. Blush has good customer service, I’ve dealt with them a few times.
My rating for the October Blush Box: B+
(3 products I love, 2 more I’m excited to try–3 products I probably won’t use. Also taking into consideration the broken blush.)
