August Macy's Beauty Box Debut Box!

Macy's recently stepped into the beauty box game with their own monthly beauty bag. Each month Macy's will send 5 deluxe beauty samples, one bonus item, a $5 off coupon in a makeup bag. I was anxious to try this box since I knew it would have beauty products that Macy's carries. 

Price: $15 a month w/shipping included. Ships to 48 states excluding Alaska and Hawaii. 

The Good:

Brands: Department store brands.

Makeup bag: Comes with a makeup bag every month. 

Information: They provide a card with all the product info on it. 

The Not So Good:

Skip: You can't skip a month. If you want to skip you have to cancel. 

Price: I think the price is a little high. 

2oz. Philosophy Purity facial cleanser. Value = $6.00

.05oz. Smashbox 2 color eye palette in golden hour. Value = $5.50

.03oz. Benefit Gimme Brow Volumnizing Fiber Gel. Value = $7.20

.23oz. Tarte Maracujá Oil. Value = $6.50

.05oz. Carolina Herrera Good Girl Perfume Spray. Value = $7.65

sample size MAC False Lashes mascara. Value = $5.00?

Gold makeup bag with "The In Crowd" written on it.

The approximate value of this debut Macy's Beauty Box is $37.85. I expected this beauty box to have a higher value. The Sephora and ipsy bags are $10 each and have a value in this range and sometimes higher. I will say the beauty bag is better than Sephora's and bigger than ipsy's. The great thing is I will use all of the items in this bag. I like the color of shadows and I'm out of brow gel. I have a ton of mascara but I've never tried MAC mascara. 

Verdict: I'm on the fence about this one. I'm going to see what happens the next 2 times and see if they up their game.
