What's In The February Beauty Box?

The following is a review for which I was compensated with product.


February Beauty Box

In the box this month - Color for Lips, Eyes, and Nails! Oh, yeah, and Skincare from Hollywood!

Glam Glow Youthmud
Paraben-Free, Vegan YouthMud is a clay and mineral-based mud mask for your face. (Clay is a great ingredient for absorbing excess oil.) Don't be afraid of the interesting gray color; this exfoliating treatment, or "tinglefoliant", is meant as anti-aging skincare. The green tea ingredients are probably the reason for that claim, with it's awesome antioxidant properties. It is hard to know if it really works for anti-aging results, as the sample is a one-time application. (I want more) The fragrance is really pleasant and the product is very exfoliating, if applied or removed in circular motions. (There's micro volcanic rock in there!) I'm a little bummed I did not feel any tingling, but I definitely had smoother skin after only one use. I would love to try this for at least a few weeks... 1.7 oz retails for $69.00.


Revlon Color Stay Nail Enamel 
Fall Mood is a great color, neutral enough to use during any season! Shimmery color is saturated and goes on in one coat, although I prefer two.  Retails for $3.99 :)


Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow in Vanilla Frosting
Vanilla Frosting is a shimmery, frosty color from Marsk. This works great as a highlighter on the brow bone! Also great for a youthful look when used all over.  A 0.04oz pot retails for $22.50.


Absolute New York Absolute LOVE Lipbalm
Yum, Yum, bubble gum. This lip balm goes on almost like liquid! I was surprised that it was so loose, as I expected a waxy feel. The fragrance is heavenly, but not the taste. The color is super sheer and transparent. Retails for $5.00.


Avon Big Color Eye Pencil
This Eye Pencil from Avon is more like a giant Crayon. The color is rich and it goes on really thick. This eye color actually stays put, which I love. The color is Sunkissed gold, but it seems neutral enough for even my cool tones. Retails for $3.49
