Macy's Beauty Box Review

There's a new beauty box in town and it's from Macy's! For $15 a month you'll receive "five deluxe beauty samples, one bonus item, a collectible cosmetics bag and a $5 coupon available for use in-store and online at Macys.com." The samples are selected by their beauty experts. "This month's box is all about best-in-class beauty essentials, sample cult-classic skin care, get a perfect eye look & finish with a sexy designer fragrance." Here's what's inside:

Was really excited to see a tarte product in my bag. "This powerful, precious skincare oil is cold-pressed from the maracuja fruit, naturally rich in brightening vitamin C and replenishing essential fatty acids to nourish, protect and feed your skin. The weightless, hypoallergenic formula helps firm and soften without clogging pores, and works to provide an antioxidant barrier against environmental attack." I've only used this two nights but I really enjoy it. It's not too heavy on the skin, absorbs quickly and kept me moisturized overnight.

Sadly haven't had much luck with M.A.C. mascaras in the past and this is no different. It didn't do anything for my lashes. I'll have to double it up with another mascara. It also smudged pretty easily.

These shades are gorgeous and high quality but are on the darker side for my skintone. Perhaps I'll pass on.

"Our cult-favorite gimme brow tinted eyebrow gel contains tiny microfibers that adhere to skin & hairs, creating natural-looking fullness and definition. The custom, tiny tapered brush blends easily while the precision tip shapes hairs into place." I've tried this before unfortunately in a lighter shade but apparently they just released a new Medium color (hooray!) so this is more aligned with my brows. Always a fan of benefit products!

My sister is a huge fan of this cleanser so I'll be sure to pass along to her.

Actually in need of perfume samples so didn't mind receiving one in my bag. I'm obsessed with the full-size bottle! I may have to use my coupon to purchase it. "Good Girl is a sensual, evocative fragrance born of the beautiful contradictions and the ever-present duality of modern women and modern life. Both freshly light and moodily dark, this innovative fragrance captures a woman's wondrous complexity with surprising and exceptional ingredients. The sweet, alluring qualities of jasmine give Good Girl its brightness and femininity. The darker side of Good Girl is created with richly fragrant cocoa and intoxicating tonka. Almond and coffee bring Good Girl its immediate vibrancy." It definitely has a more evening vibe to me like my current Jimmy Choo Illicit.

Overall I was really impressed with this box (bag)! It is going to be hard not to customize the samples though - not everyone is medium brown - and I think that is the way many boxes are going. Birchbox now let's you customize and Julep pretty much let's you fully customize. I do like the coupon to buy a full-size product even though I don't shop at Macy's very often. They were all really great brands but I do like that other boxes introduce me to brands I'm not familiar with either they're niche or international so I'd be curious to see how the product selection grows.

Would you give this subscription box a try?
