Beauty Box 5 has really impressed me since I resubscribed in July 2016. On a year subscription, it’s $11.25 US a month. Shipping this month was much better than it has been. Not only did I receive my box before the end of the month, they also sent tracking information!

The theme for March is “Lash Bash” and the box is full of eye products so you can “Be Dramatic”.

MANNA KADAR Lash Primer - (Deluxe Sample Size, $14) 
Going for a natural look without the falsies?
I’m excited to try this lash primer as I don’t wear falsies too often. This deluxe sample is over half the size of the full-sized product, so that alone is impressive. You would apply this lash primer first before applying regular mascara to give a fuller, naturally-lengthened lash-look. 

Sweep Lashes - (5 Sets, $15)
If you always wanted to try falsies, now’s your chance!
I couldn’t find the lashes anywhere online or in their store, so I will take BB5’s word for it that they’re $15, which is super reasonable for 5 sets. Subscribers received various styles and I am happy with the ones I received. I do love me some falsies from time-to-time, so these will definitely be put to good use with wedding season coming up this Spring/Summer.

Bellapierre Cosmetics Cosmetic Glitter in Cooper - (Full Size, $15)
This cosmetic glitter can be applied with a mixing medium or directly to skin, eyelids, hair, lips and even your bubble bath!
Glitter is a little too flashy for me. It’s a gorgeous colour, but I won’t be using it. 

Prestige Cosmetics True Metals Eyeshadow in Copper - (Full Size, $9.75)
Before popping on your lashes, you’ll need some color!
I am glad I gave this shadow a chance; I decided to try it out and it is not as metallic as it appears. It’s actually a lovely colour with only a hint of glimmer once it's applied..

Sweep Lash Helper ($10)
Use this innovative tool to help you perfectly place false eyelashes on your lash line.
This item is not available on sweep beauty’s website. In theory, this seems like a neat tool to have in my collection. Whether I’ll use it or not is the question. I will put in a valiant effort, as sometimes applying lashes can be a pain in my butt.

The March Beauty Box 5 included five items, valued at $63.75 US. The value is good this month, and it’s nice to see them really stick to the “Lash Bash” theme. I personally love both the lash primer and falsies, so I am happy with this box. I do wish they threw in some lash adhesive as it only makes sense, especially for those who are new to the falsies-world. Good job, BB5.
