Beauty Box 5 continually impresses me. On a year subscription, it’s $11.25 US a month. Shipping this month was strange: As per the shipping label/shipping information email it was only sent on April 29th. I didn’t receive my box before the end of the month, but it was here in only 6 days!

The theme for April is “Stay Golden” and the box is full of things to keep you golden.

First look!

Be a Bombshell Blush in Whisper - Full Size ($8 US) 
These highly pigmented hues can be used as blush, bronzer or highlight for an allover glow!
I received the perfect shade. I won’t use it as a blush, but as a highlighter instead. It has a subtle, sandy, dewy finish that is long lasting and perfect for summer!

DID HAIR Gold Bobby Pins - ($8.50 US) 
A spin on an otherwise boring classic, these eye-catching gold bobby pins can elevate any everyday hairstyle or keep bangs out of your face.
I am loving these Gold bobby pins. I will keep them in my wallet for those days that I am in need of one. I think the price is a little high, but I could not find them online otherwise. I would not pay $8.50 US for 12 pins.

BB5 Highlight Fan Brush - ($12 US)
You’ll need a tool to help achieve that dramatic highlight you’ve seen so much on Instagram! Our pro fan brush is ideal for dusting shimmer along the high points of your face or sweeping on color for a diffused look.
I already own a fan brush so this will be gifted. It seems to be made of good quality and would definitely be useful for adding highlighter in your makeup routine.

Sweep Beauty Rose Gold Eyelash Curler - ($15.99)
No matter your eye shape, this lash curler is able to grab lashes without pinching or discomfort and creates a natural-looking curl for a subtle pop.
I couldn’t find the curler anywhere online or on Sweep Beauty’s website, so I will take BB5’s word for it that it’s $15.99. I’ve never actually used an eyelash curler as I saw someone in 8th grade pull all her eyelashes out using it.. But I may give it a try. I love that it’s rose gold.

Jean Pierre Cosmetics Vitamin-C Sheet Mask ($3 US)
Here’s a natural glow: this brightening and hydrating mask contains Vitamin C to lighten dark spots for an anti-aging spa treatment at home!
I’m not usually a mask fan but I will give it a shot. The reviews online seem to be positive.

The April Beauty Box 5 included five items, valued at $47.50 US. The value is lower than usual this month, but I am still happy with this box. BB5 has been consistently delivering a good box.
