Are you addicted to cosmetic and beauty brands? Don’t worry this is not my way of persuading you to seek help. Instead I want to make sure you are aware of my new cosmetic fixe! BEAUTY SUBSCRIPTION BOXES! I’ve been hearing about different brands featuring samples of beauty brands, but how do you decide which box is best for you? Do you really get your money’s worth?
Depending on the beauty box you subscribe to you are guaranteed exclusive access to new and up coming as well as major brands. The great thing about them is the samples are full-sized and the boxes are filled with 4-7 new samples to try every month.
See my top 3 Beauty Boxes you should subscribe to below!
How Much?: $21 a month
What to expect? A Sweet treat! It arrived in the cutest pink box that is now my new makeup box. It was filled with Vine Vera Moisture Day Cream, a Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Angle Face Brush (my new favorite brush), I Love…Cosmetics hand lotion, Too Faced Long Wear Lipstick and Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner. The boxes are carefully curated and definitely made me aware of the brands I want to continue to try.

What to expect? Being a woman of color I’ve spent money on cosmetics that turned out to be wrong choices for my complexion, but the editors at Essence have made it easier for us. They’ve curated the Essence Beauty Box with the best of the best for all women of color. Another great thing is that each box features at least one black owned business.
They recently added a “Discover Your Shade of Beautiful” quiz which results in unlocking a promo code to a limited-edition BeautyBox. Subscribers will also receive a matching watercolor scarf!
