Blush Mystery Beauty Box September Review

Be sure to enter my Social Monograms giveaway for a personalized leather clutch while you're here!! :D

Guess what? It's another awesome month from Dermstore's Blush Beauty Mystery Box!! This subscription is officially my third favorite (behind PopSugar and Ipsy) and I LOVE it again this month!! I had seen one itty bitty spoiler but for the most part it was a super fun total surprise!! 

This subscription costs $35 for a one time purchase or $25/month with subscription ($26.45 with tax to Kentucky) and contains $100+ of beauty products. Each month has a guest curator. This month's box was curated by Sara Strand, creative director for Pop Beauty who describes her style as "bringing makeup artistry to the street!" This kit is supposed to contain everything one would need to survive Fashion Week. I've survived fashion week successfully in the past, but am always open to suggestions! Haha! Let's get to it! 

Here's first looks:

And the breakdown:

Racinne Ultimate Youth Power Travel Set, $59 - I couldn't find anything like this set online so my valuation comes from quick and dirty calculations from the four full size items (serum, cream, neck emulsion and mask). Um, I'm first to admit there are probably mistakes in my ml to ounces to grams calculations... LOL! I'm heading to LA for a whirlwind weekend next week and I'm thinking this just might make it in my bag!

Amlactin Foot Cream, $13 - Oh my end of summer feet could use the TLC! This is going right into rotation!

Brad Biophotonic Skin Care Ultra Peel, $25 - This stuff? Never heard of it but it retails for $100/ounce! I learned a while back to never discount the value of even the smallest tube! Wow. I sure wish there were some reviews on Amazon. I'm definitely intrigued!

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Dry Shampoo,  $1 - I'm hoping "anti-aging" means it covers grays! haha! This handy little size is going right in my travel bag, too!

Pop Beauty Pouty Pop Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt, $4 - Am I the only person who misspells fuchsia EVERY SINGLE TIME??? Thank you autocorrect! ;) The value of these is always listed as something like $14 but they come in sets of 6 for around $24, so I'm going with that. I've liked the Pop Beauty crayon that I received in the July Ipsy Bag but this bright color looks even BETTER! Love it.

LVX Nail Polish in Midori, $14 - Eh, the color looks a little bright to me for fall, but always excited to try a new brand!

Anastasia Clear Brow Gel,  $7 - I needed this, so it goes right into rotation, too!

Bonus Samples

Vichy Liftactiv - Always excited about eye products!

Airbrush Eye Cream - Third month in a row receiving this and I'm happy to get it! I'm almost through my second little pot and it's growing on me, for sure! 

So this month's box cost me $26 and AGAIN contained $120+ worth of product. Another month of high value and I'm super stoked about it. You can read my reviews of past months in the drop down menu above and here: August, July, June, May.  

If you are interested in trying the Blush Beauty subscription service, let me know! I can send you an e-mail invite and you and I will each get a $10 coupon when you sign up! Win-win!! This month's box is still available for a one-time purchase of $34.95, which is still quite a bargain! :D
