Blush Beauty Mystery Box October 2013 Review

Be sure to enter my fun October mini makeover giveaway 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 a couple of spoilers but it's always a fun 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 Kimberly Klotz-Kolodziejski (glad my kids didn't have to learn to spell that last name! LOL), co-founder of Chella Skin Care. She and her husband founded Chella and she's the brand's spokesperson and beauty consultant. She says she likes to "keep Chella fresh and open to new possibilities." Let's get to it! 

Here's first looks:

And the breakdown:

Miracle Skin Transformer Face SPF 20 - $5 - This looks similar to the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer that I have adored for ages. Anxious to see if it compares!

Karin Herzog Vitamin H Rich Nourishing Face Cream, $4 - What is vitamin H??? Some mystery miracle cure that I've been looking for my whole life??? LOL

Talika Lipocils Expert Eyelash Treatment, $7 - I was just texting with a friend last night about eyelashes. I've always been pretty serious about them but I've never tried one of these treatment serums! This kind of thing has been on my list to try for a while, so anxious to get started on it!

Theraplex FT Exfoliating Emollient, $15 - There aren't many good things about colder weather but having a chance to pamper flip flop weary feet is one of them! ;)

Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter, $15 - This was one of the spoilers leaked by Blush and I was pumped about it. Like everyone else, I'm in love with this highlighter crayon after receiving it in my June Ipsy Bag! I'm excited to have a backup since mine is going fast!

Myface Cosmetics Lip Pop Gloss, $18 - Just with a quick bit of digging, this looks like a UK brand that is still relatively new to the US. Excited to try it!

Mirabella Brilliant Mineral Highlighting Powder, $38 - LOVE this. I grabbed a brush and put some of it on as soon as I saw it! It's subtly sparkly and gives a natural pink glow. I can see myself easily becoming obsessed!

Butter London Nail Lacquer in Kerfuffle, $15 - This was the other spoiler leaked by Blush. I have always been happy with the Butter formula but this color is weird for me. I was hoping it was going to be a bit more sheer when I put it on but it's a super opaque peachy pink that seems off for fall. To be honest, it is kind of off for me any time of the year, especially for a pedicure. We definitely don't have a color like this, though, so my girls will find some use for it, I'm sure.

Bonus samples and coupons: Specific Beauty Night Treatment Complex (20% off at Dermstore with code SPECIFIC), Dremu Oil Serum (20% off with promo code DREMU-20), 20% off PMD Personal Microderm products at Dermstore with code PMD20

So this month's box cost me $26 and contained $115+ 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: SeptemberAugustJulyJuneMay.  

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
