Walmart Beauty Box Spring 2015

Hello, beautiful people!

This plain box arrived at my doorstep last week. What’s in it? Well, if you’re as nosy as I can be at times, I’m about to explain 😉

I have mentioned the Walmart Beauty Box before, it’s just a box you can sign up for on walmart.com and it’s actually free, you just pay for shipping ($5). It arrives every season (every 3 months) and it just has cute little samples in it. I actually quite like this subscription box. They always come with coupons, and honestly coupons are sometimes better than samples. At least with coupons I can pick out what I want and what will fit me best, and get it cheaper.

These were the biggest things in the box. I received a sample of a Dove body wash, which I actually love Dove body wash. A sample sized shampoo and conditioner set. This says it’s for “dry and depleted hair” which I kinda have thanks to years of dying it, so I will actually be trying that instead of forgetting about them like I tend to do.

There’s a baby sample of a neutrogena facial wash. I actually don’t like neutrogena face washes very much, I think they dry my skin out too much. I also got a sample perfume (with a sprayer!) of a Lady Gaga perfume. Here’s to hoping it smells eccentric and lavish.

The only full sized makeup item this time seems to be this Rimmel lash accelerator mascara. I’m always on the hunt for a good mascara, so I will for sure be trying this out once I use up my other mascaras.

Next thing I noticed…foil packets and coupons galore.

I imagined Oprah packing these boxes shouting, “Here’s a foil packet for you! And you! And you! EVERYONE GETS FOIL PACKETS!”

I have no problem with foil packets, I just don’t use them. However, I have been wanting to try the new Maybelline foundation. I don’t think that’s my shade, but I will try it anyway. The garnier sleep cream seems really cool too.

Oh look…more coupons and foil packets.

In all, there were $14 worth of coupons in my box! Plus the full sized mascara and other samples, this box was a pretty high value.

I enjoy this beauty box, and because it only arrives every 3 months I kinda forget about it and then it’s like Christmas when I do get it!

Maybe I just have a bad memory…

If there’s anything in this post that would like to see a review on, please let me know!
As always, thank you for reading and I hope you stick around for a bit!

If this your first time stopping by my blog, I hope you decide to stay for a bit!

Unboxing and Review: Walmart Beauty Box and Lip Monthly

I am currently subscribed to 3 different things. The Walmart Beauty Box, Lip Monthly, and I recently caved and decided to go back to Ipsy since I felt a bit lost without my glam bag.
I recorded an unboxing of both of the December Walmart Beauty Box and my Lip Monthly bag, but I wanted to post better pictures and swatches here.

First up: Walmart Beauty Box

This box comes every 3 months (once per season) and is technically free, but the $5 is shipping costs.
This was December’s Winter Box

Pretty decent amount of product for $5, in my opinion. The one thing not pictured is the Maybelline Dream Wonder powder, but honestly I think that was just a coupon (it had a $1 coupon attached). I’m never too fond of foil packet samples because let’s be real many of them end up in the weird black hole part of makeup drawers where foil samples go to die. Or is that just me?
There was a full sized lipstick in the box as well! It looks like it’s from the new Maybelline line it’s in the shade “Mocha Kiss” and it’s a very brown shade. I don’t know how much use I will get out of this, personally, but I will play around with it.

However, I am pretty excited to try everything else. I’ve never heard of a body BB Cream, but from what I’ve read on the sample bottle it looks pretty neat! Overall, I am happy with this box and it’s a cute little surprise every season for me. It does look like there are different boxes sent out depending on your age group, because I’ve seen another version of the Winter box on several blogs.

Second: Lip Monthly Bag

I’ve reviewed Lip Monthly before on this blog, and on Youtube and I will link both at the end of this post.
I’m still very confused about this subscription. I love the concept, and for the most part the products are awesome, but there is something a bit off about their customer service. I feel that they need an overhaul and need someone better marketing for them and handling customer service issues. I know that running a business is extremely hard (my parents did twice) but if you’re not willing/able to answer your customers concerns, no matter how rude or odd they may be, what’s the point in having a business? There’s my small rant on that matter.

With that aside, the products are so spot on if you’re a lip product lover. I loved every single thing in this bag, and that’s not common for me. The total value of this bag was $25 compared to the $10 I paid, so that’s pretty rad. I do hope that whatever is going on with Lip Monthly is just a bump in the road for them, because I do wish them every bit of success. I love the idea of a monthly bag catered to those that love trying out new lip products. I can already say that I have worn that Magnolia Makeup lipstick twice since getting my bag. It’s so dreamy. I’m rooting for you, Lip Monthly. I really am.
