Beauty sample subscription services have been all the rage the past few years. What makes them so popular and well received is the concept of being able to sample various beauty products from a variety of brands for a low fee each month. They often include products newly on the market or soon-to-be released. If you’re a makeup or hair junkie like myself, this is the ultimate opportunity to sample before you buy full-size.
Recently, ESSENCE Magazine allowed me to explore their new Beauty Box which includes the best in beauty for women of color. My box included 5 deluxe sample size beauty goodies curated by the beauty experts at ESSENCE. They didn’t stop there, with the products come tips and tricks to incorporating them into your daily beauty routine.
My box included a beautiful red matte lipstick from Black Opal, A mini mascara with a huge wand to lift the finest and smallest of eyelashes, a moisturizing body lotion, hair curl cream and a hair fragrance spray. I was most excited about testing out the lipstick, mascara and hair fragrance spray- I didn’t even know such a thing existed! Since us women of color, come in various shades, the beauty experts made sure to pick makeup shades that would work on just about every skin shade, like the lipstick I’m wearing below.
In the this picture, I’m wearing the lipstick and the Deva Curl hair cream, which I applied to help tame my hair for this slick back bun.
In all, this is a great box for the makeup and beauty enthusiasts. Click here for more details about the different subscription service plans available as well as a sneak peak of the goodies inside the upcoming month.
