I resubscribed to Beauty Box 5 in July 2016, and have to mention that they’ve really stepped up their game. On a year subscription, it’s $11.25 US a month. Shipping takes ages, but that’s my only complaint. It always makes it here. I received February’s box on March 3rd.
First look

The theme for February is “The Kiss List” and the box is full of lip products so you can “Put your best kiss forward”.
TINT Beauty Unicorn Lippie in Forever After (Full Size $9 US)
Let’s get mythical! Introducing the Unicorn Lippie Collection -- making its debut in this month’s box. So this ultra-pigmented, matte liquid lipstick comes with the below matching liner. 
I like the colour and am excited that it’s meant to last all night. However, when applied it has a tacky shine to it even though it dries Matte. Matte lipsticks are my new thing as they add class to any look, without being too flashy.

So Susan Colour Hybrid (Full Size $17.50 US)Add a flirty flush!
I’ve received this before in another beauty box and it has great pigmented colour, but it doesn’t stay put on my lips.. It ends up on my skin and teeth. I didn’t realize they also suggest you can use it on your cheeks, so I will give that a shot. The colour is really beautiful.

Style Essentials Lip Glow in Rose (Full Size $2.00)
There’s nothing worse than a blemish before a big event! Made with salicylic acid, volcanic ash and tea tree oil, these patches absorb excess oil and calm redness quickly.
These little patches are awesome! I received them in my Topbox last month and gave them a shot. They worked quickly and efficiently overnight to reduce redness and I was thankful they stayed in place all night without making a mess on my pillow. I would highly recommend this product.

Jean Pierre Cosmetics Pink Moisturizing Lip Mask (~$1.60 US)
Prep your pout like a beauty blogger and repair dryness with collagen, vitamins and minerals. 
I’ve never heard of a lip mask before, so I’m intrigued by this concept. With our harsh Canadian winter, and living in Alberta, it’s DRY. I’m excited to give my lips some TLC and take a ridiculous selfie while I do it.

TINT Beauty Unicorn Liner in Forever After (Full Size $7.00 US)
You’ll need a matching liner to go with your new unicorn lip. 
I’m not really a liner fan, but I’m going to give this matching duo a shot. I LOVE the colour.

The February Beauty Box 5 included five items, valued at $37.00 US. The value is good this month, and it’s nice to see them stick to a theme. I personally enjoy lip products so I am pleased with this box. The best value is to go for a year long subscription at $99, plus $36 shipping (US dollars). It works out to $11.25 per month ($3.75/month savings off the month to month price).
