October Macy's Beauty Bag

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.

Contents of the Macy's beauty bag. 

.5oz. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. Value = $4.00

.5oz. Lancome Energie De Vie Moisturizing Cream. Value = $16.00

.04oz. YSL Black Opium perfume. Value = $3.40

.25oz. Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. Value = $8.00

.35oz. Strivectin Multi-Action. Value = $12.00

Makeup bag.

The approximate value of this debut Macy's Beauty Box is $55.00. This is way better than the previous months, perhaps they are getting word that they needed to step up their values. I also noticed the brands and products were higher end than previous boxes. Again a step in the right direction. This box is all face product though and I would like to have seen at least one makeup item or at least a bath product. I know it sounds picky but with so many subscription boxes out there you have to be a little picky.  

Verdict: While this box had a high value I just wasn't impressed with the overall contents. I've giving up this subscription for now and will watch for changes in the future.
