Angel Beauty Box Review April 2014

angel beauty box review april


The April Angel Beauty Box did not ship until late into May which may be the latest I’ve ever seen a box ship without any prior heads-up. I did like my first box, so I was interested in seeing what was included in the April box.

LaSplash Nail Splash in Pink Lavender – Retail Value $5.98

This is such a pretty Spring color. My mother already claimed it for herself !

LaSplash Hyrdo Liquid Shadow in Dynamic - Retail Value $9.98

LaSplash Eyeshadow Sealer/Base – Retail Value $8.98

I got this in my Glossybox and was really excited to try it out. I haven’t had a chance to use it, but if it is good, I will certainly keep this!

angel beauty box review april Le’Angelique Styling Comb – Retail Value $9.99

I love these styling combs. I’ve been using them for years. They help get your hair straighter and faster when using the straightening iron. I actually just bought one from Birchbox with my points, but it is nice to have a backup!

Le’Angelique Wonder Curler – Retail Value $29.95

I am nervous about heated anything near my eyes, but I am too curious about how this works to not give it a try!

Thoughts: The total value of the box was great at just under $65. I liked a couple of the products, but I am always a little disappointed to see several products from one or two brands. Overall, it was a good box and I am happy with it.

Angel Beauty Box Review March 2014

angel beauty box review

As a mixed race person, I’ve always been interested in the subscription boxes for women of color. When I found out Angel Beauty Box was having their one-year anniversary and were sending March boxes for free, I had to snag one before they sold out (they ended up selling out soon after I subscribed).

Each box comes with a product card that looks like a magazine. This is the box owners photo on the front. I thought that was a really nice touch!

J.Cat Perfect Coat Nail Polish in Sober Up – Retail Value $2.99

I’ve tried different products from J. Cat before, but never their nail polish. I am really excited to give this a try.I am really in love with the color for Spring and Summer!

Nicka K Quad Eye Shadow in Sacramento – Retail Value $4.99

This eye shadow set is super bright! I would have used the pink and purple when I was in college, but I am not sure I can pull it off now. I think the dark blue and the purple might make a great night look.

Dr Miracles Double Deep Moisturizing Mask – Foil Sample

This sample will not be enough for me to really see how it works with my long, thick hair. I will be better off giving this to someone else.

Make Up Remover Cloth – Retail Value $1?

The make up remover does not have a brand name on it, so I am not sure about cost. It works just fine though.

Beauty Treats Darling Diamond Lip Gloss in Rich Raisin - Retail Value $4.99

This is a really pretty color, but it goes on sheer.

Nicka K Absolute Brightening Essence Mask Tissue - Retail Value $2.99

I tried one of these masks before and I loved it, I am really excited to give this a try again.

Thoughts: As my first Angel Beauty Box, I am on the fence with how I feel about it. Considering that I paid nothing for the box, the value is great, but at the $20 price point, it is a little lacking with a total retail value of just under $17. I do love the nail polish and face mask, but the hair mask and non-brand make up remover leave me less than impressed. I think I will need to try out another box to decide if I really like it.
