October Blush Mystery Beauty Box

Blush is a company that is associated with Dermstore and Blush offers a monthly mystery beauty box.  You can make a one time purchase for $34.95 or subscribe monthly for $24.95.  Both prices include shipping. It made absolutely no sense to me to pay $10 more when I could just cancel the subscription if I didn't like it.  Each month Blush says they will send a box full of products handpicked by their panel of beauty experts of mostly full size and some travel-size products worth at least $100.  The subscriptions are limited and sell out quickly.

I believe this subscription is available to the US only, they don't really say on their website. 

The good:

Price: If they continue to send great products with a value of at least $100 that's 4 times the value.

Want more: Since they have a retail website reordering is easy and all these products were easily found.

The not so good:

Price: This is one of the higher priced subscriptions but the products seem to be premium.

Skip: Their website is not user friendly.  I couldn't find an option to skip or cancel.

FULL SIZE Chella Lace Highlighter. Value = $18.00

The total value of of this blush beauty box is $123.38. Yay nail polish and it's Butter London polish which I love. The big item in this box is the Chella highlighter but I'll be honest I have no idea how to use this. I also don't really know what to do with the Mirabella highlighting powder. Even though I like playing with makeup colors I'm sort of a minimalist when it comes to the highlighting, bronzing and all that. I might need to go to the teenager and she if she can enlighten me. The exfoliating product is something I can totally use. At first I thought the lipocils was a lip product because really with a name like lipocils why wouldn't it be. Turns out it's another product to help pump up your lashes. I tried the smartlash product awhile back and I didn't see any real noticeable results. The lip gloss color is really pretty but it will have to wait for me to use the others. 

Verdict: This box is always great in product and value. Even if I don't love everything I always get my moneys worth on the products I will definitely use.

  1. I received the Chella in Ipsy and had no idea what to do with it. Blush has a great video on you tube showing you all the uses and now I love it...and I now have 2! I use it under my eyes, on my waterline to accent eyes and as a spot concealer. Really cool!

    1. Thanks for the info. I will look into those videos!
