A couple of weeks ago, I received an email about a collective beauty box from Influenster available for $50. *BTW if you are NOT a member of Influenster and have a decent presence on social media, you should sign up because YOU WILL get sent free things. Seriously. 100% free. The promotion was accompanied by an offer from Ebates, which unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably heard of by now. I begrudgingly signed up for Ebates as well, due to the $10 cash back they promised, making the beauty box only $40.
I also ended up doing a bit of Christmas shopping on Ebates and low and behold, already got my first reimbursement check for 16 big ones! So basically, I will be using Ebates from now on because why the hell wouldn’t I? If you are not signed up for Ebates btw, you probably should because it is free money.
But enough about all the money I saved. ON TO THE BOX!
Feast yer eyes on all the items I got for $40.
For starters, Influenster values this box at $300 and they ain’t lyin. I mean, check out the following items:
A Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder ($23)
AND you get the pouf:
A FULL SIZED Everlasting Lipstick by Kat Von D in the shade Lolita ($20)
A mini Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Vanilla Quartz ($19)
Those three items alone total $60. WHAT A DEAL folks! What. A. Deal.
Here are some other faves that came in the box:
Colorpop Supershock Eyeshadow in Lightening Bug ($5)
SO freakin’ pretty!
Full sized Tresemme Tres Two hairspray and my beloved Batiste Dry Shampoo in Neon.
A FULL SIZED Origins Ginzing Eye Cream ($32) plus samples from Sunday Riley and Purity Face Wash!
FULL SIZED products here too! Body lotion from Love Beauty and Planet, Ponds Dry Skin Cream, Coola Sport Face SPF 50 White Tea Sunscreen ($32).
All full sized products here too – from NYX, Real Techniques, Younique, Wet’n’Wild and Covergirl!
I just love ordering boxes like this around this time of year. They make great gifts in and of themselves but you can also put together smaller gift bags using some of the products depending on the person and keep a few things for yourself. SUCH a good idea!
This box is still for sale here! Go get you one!
