Macy’s Beauty Box Review – February 2018
When I discovered that Macy’s had their own beauty box I was intrigued. I do like Macy’s and I love beauty products.. Was this going to be a perfect match?
Macy’s Beauty Box is a bit more expensive than similar boxes – $15 a month shipped. Macy’s Beauty Box is also not customizable that I can see – in fact a quick search on Instagram shows the same products delivered to everyone who posted. Are these products worth it?
The bag is a hot pink nylon fabric (lined on the inside) with a zipper closure and screenprint “Believe in your #selfie” with a gold heart. Approx 5″x7″.
Ok, this bag is CUTE as heck. I am a sucker for bright things – this won’t get lost in the bottom of my purse easily. The zipper is smooth and well made. Saying is very cute! I cannot see this doubling as a clutch, it’s really great for travel though.
philosophy Ultimate Miracle Worker Fix Eye Power-Treatment
Your ultimate eye fix is here. this power-treatment is our 1st super-tasker for the delicate skin around the eye, featuring actives including patented bi-retinoid, soy peptide extracts and hyaluronic acid. 3-dimensional problems that occur around the eye contour are rapidlly targeted, for a notably smoother and more youthful-looking appearance.
I am a big fan of philosophy products so I was happy to see this one. I have used it before and have always loved it – so yay for travel size!! I got a .1fl oz, a .5fl oz bottle is $68.
IT Cosmetics Confidence In A Cleanser
Developed with plastic surgeons, Confidence In A Cleanser is your skin-loving cleanser and serum in one game-changing product! Gentle enough for all skin types and ophthalmologist tested for your sensitive eye area, this sulfate-free, soap-free facial cleanser instantly removes all traces of makeup (even waterproof eye makeup), leaving skin looking and feeling soft. Featuring proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate to help your skin appear rejuvenated and restore moisture, plus anti-aging collagen, hyaluronic acid, colloidal oatmeal and a super ceramide complex, this skincare innovation delivers powerful results instantly with more dramatic results over time!
At an affordable $28 for a 5oz tube, this is a great cleanser to get. My makeup melts off when I use it and it’s gentle enough to even use on my eye makeup without irritation.
Dior Addict Lip Glow
Its secret lies in the perfect balance between make-up and lip care, thanks to the famous ‘Color Reviver’ technology which reacts to the unique chemistry of each person’s lips to give them a natural flush of custom color that suits each skin tone. Lips look fresh, full and radiant, as if revived from within. The Lip Glow formula is concentrated in mango butter and provides continual hydration for 24 hours*. *Instrumental test on 11 subjects, except from matte shades Application tips: Wear it alone, below, or on top of lipstick: Apply alone for a natural flush of color. Wear as a lip balm or primer. Layer on top of lipstick to change the effect. Top with Lip Maximizer for even more radiant results.
Ohh I like this. I love that the samples came with a little lip brush, which is actually pretty decent – but teeny tiny so I use my own lip brush. I can see myself wearing Raspberry a lot. It’s buildable and soft. $34 for a full size tube.
TONYMOLY I’m Real Sheet Mask – Rose (Vitalizing)
Replenish your skin with our I’m Real Sheet Mask Collection! An array of ingredients, the 3-layer pulp sheet is filled with natural ingredients and soaked in different types of enriched essence (water, micro-emulsion, milky lotion) to yield maximum hydration for your skin. Transform dull and tired skin into healthy, moisturized skin in as little as 20 minutes! This fun and functional sheet mask collection features different ingredients all targeting different skin concerns.
This mask smells sooooo goooooood.. I have a love for facial masks and use them quite often. This one is only $3 and does exactly what it says!
Tarte Fake Awake Eye Highlight
Fake a full night’s sleep with this insta-brightening eyeliner. A makeup artist trick for bigger, brighter eyes, the twist-up creamy gel eyeliner glides on smoothly and neutralizes the inner rim with long-wearing, matte nude pigment. It can also be used to brighten the inner corner and brow bone with soothing aloe, antioxidants and none of the icky, bad stuff.
Light, creamy, and soft, this Tarte Fake Awake Highlight is nice for the inner rim. I look like I got a little sleep. Bonus – I love it for accenting my eyebrow shape but lightly lining and blending it out. $20 for a full size, but this sample will last me a while.
COACH Floral Eau de Parfum
Inspired by COACH’s signature leather tea roses. The feminine scent opens with a splash of citrus coeur and a touch of effervescent pink peppercorn with radiant pineapple sorbet. The heart reveals a bouquet of fragrant flowers (rose tea, jasmine sambac and gardenia) before an enveloping dry-down to elegant creamy wood, patchouli essence and musky notes. This unique fragrance perfectly embodies COACH’s feminine, free spirit.
I don’t wear perfume because I am highly sensitive to them, and although I do like this one, it’s a bit floral for me. With that said, it’s definitely better than most out there when it comes to sensitivity. It’s pricey though!
I would say overall my first Macy’s Beauty Box was a success, BUT I would have loved to see a full size product in there since this box is more than the usual box prices (with the exception of a few like Boxycharm). With that said, every brand in the Macy’s Beauty Box is a known brand and very easy to find if I want more, which is something to be considered. Get your own box HERE.
