Fall 2016 Beautycon Box Review

Today I got my second Beautycon Box and I want to share the contents. This box was curated by MakeupShayla & Angel Merino and is called “Fall Essentials”.

The Beautycon box is $29.00 plus shipping and comes out quarterly. My first box was the Summer 2016 box by Kandee Johnson which included the Redken Fashion Waves 07Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing OilNYX Ombre Lip DuoNYX Jumbo Eye Pencil and Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara.

I do feel like this box was geared a little more for the under 25 crowd but there’s still plenty of stuff I’m excited to try out.

One nice thing about Beautycon is that you get a few full-sized products in the box.

Here’s what I got in the Fall 2016 Box.

The BrowGal Double Ended Highlighter Pencil –  This neat highlighter pencil can be used on brows or anywhere on your face. You get a gold and nude side. Price: $20.

DUO – Lash Adhesive – I have to admit I have never worn false eyelashes so this one is new for me! Full-Sized price $5.99.

Flutter Lashes – iStay Lashes – False eyelashes scare me a bit but I’m willing to try them out! Price $9.95.

Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer – This lip enhancer is supposed to increase fulness and reduce fine lines which could be great for us over 40 girls! Full-Sized price $16.

Laser Kitten – Sweetheart Lipstick Pin – A super cute pin to gift to a girl! Price $12.

Luxie Beauty Luxie Large Angled 504 Brush – This is my favorite item in the box. I am always on the look-out for a new brush and this one looks awesome and it gets great reviews. Price $16.

Milani Cosmetics – Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow – I have the Milani Gel Powder in Bella Copper, this one is Bella Caffe and I’m excited to try this shade. Price $4.99.

Mystic Tan – Mocha-Kyssed Bronzer Lotion – This is a sunless tanning lotion for the body. I thought this was an odd choice for Fall, but I live in a cooler climate. I’m not a huge fan of tanning lotions so this one will probably get gifted. Full-Sized price $35.

OFRA Cosmetics – Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick – I have never heard of this brand but it’s supposed to be on the higher end. It smells like cookies!  Price $19.90

Simple – Cleansing Facial Wipes – This is a sample pack of 7 wipes that are “kind to skin”. I’m excited to try these. Full-Sized price $5.99.

Sugarfina – Sugar Lips – Cute candy lips coated in sugar! Price $2.50.

You also get a cute sticker pack.

If you add up the box using the full-sized prices it comes to $148.32, so with the couple of smaller sample sizes I’d say the box with worth the $100 that Beautycon claims. It’s a great selection to try and and I’m excited to review some of the products.

  1. I was kind of disappointed by the box if I’m honest, I love them both and I was so excited to see a box of their faves but I havent even heard them talk about half of the products! Still a nice box regardless of that haha. Love the post! Xoxo
