February’s theme is called “All about love”, and it sure reminds me of the over te top sugary sweetness called Valentines day. Honestly, this box needed some time to land. I wasn’t quite sure if the box fitted me. It’s so..pink! In hindsight I actually quite like this box, and it has 7(!) products inside. My box was delivered on Valentines day itself and was absolutely a gift ‘cause this one was free. Score! Anyway, enough chit-chat. Let’s see what pretty things are inside.
Brands in this box: Lord & Berry, Paese, Vitamasques, Creative Cosmetics, Chella, Hikari.
Value of this box: €79,90
Chella Eyebrow gel
If I can tell you one thing about The Netherlands it’s that it’s very, very windy. This eyebrow gel from Chella might save me from weird, bushy eyebrows when I get off my bike. It’s a nice clear gel that holds both shape and color really well. The applicator is sturdy, which is nice. Most applicators I used bend easily which I don’t like that much. This gel is definitely a keeper.
Chella Eyebrow Defining Gel Clear • Retail price €20
Lord & Berry lipstick crayon
This is an item I will absolutely not use. I love Lord & Berry’s products, but this color..It gives me strong Barbie vibes. The formula of this lip pencil is really nice though! It applies smoothly and thanks to the vitamin-E it delivers anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, hydration and suppleness properties. The jumbo size is really nice as well. That color though… If only it was red!

paese loose powder eyeshadow
Before I say anything about this product: they truly need to rethink their packaging! As nearly all loose-powder products this packaging comes with a sticker to close off the holes. Shame this sticker was almost impossible to remove. The result: glitter e-very-where. With that being said, this eyeshadow is the bomb. It’s extremely pigmented and has a nice glitter to it without being too much. This box had one of two colors: Pearly Peach and Light Gold. I got the Pearly Peach and I’m really happy with it. Its a great eyeshadow for a touch of color on weekdays and can be poppin’ for parties as well. Love it!

vitamasques lip mask
So, I’m not really a lip mask kinda girl. I never used it before and I’m pretty sure I’ll never buy one on itself. Which is weird, our lips see plenty of stuff on a daily basis: make-up, food, saliva, wind.. It just never crosses my mind to, you know, put a mask on it. Nevertheless, this lip mask from Vitamasques enhances the skin’s ability to retain moisture designed to repair and plump your lips. My lips felt really soft after using it, but there was no plump effect at all. It was a fun product for a beautybox but I would not recommend buying it.

hikari fake lashes
I’ve been really fangirling the Hikari products I’ve received so far. These lashes are no exception. There is one of three different types in the February box and I got the “Masquerade” set. To be fair, I rather received one of the others since they are a little less…out there. Nonetheless these are great for a wedding or a party, so I will put them to good use. Once I learn how to actually apply fake lashes that is. There is one downside: these lashes come without any glue. Since I usually don’t wear fake lashes I don’t have glue at home and I have no idea which is any good. Any tips?

creative cosmetics make-up brushes
In addition to the Finishing Touch brush from Creative Cosmetics we received last November we now get two more brushes from the same set: a eyeshadow brush and a bronzer brush. These two are just as great: very soft, flexible hairs and they blend everything well. The bronzer brush is great for contouring as well. Nothing to say about it really, just two nice brushes.

Creative Cosmetics Bronzer Brush no3 • Retail price €19,95

Although I enjoyed the box, some products were way off for me. I would never wear a Barbie pink lipcolor, the lip mask didn’t really do anything and the lashes, albeit pretty, are a bit heavy for me. Therefor I rate this box 3.5 stars. Remember: this is a rating based on my personal liking, although the quality of the product plays a part.
The Styletone beautybox is a monthly subscription, but you can buy single boxes as well. With each month at least 5 new full-size (!) beauty products for just €15,95 it’s an absolute bargain. You will never receive the same product twice and all products are cruelty-free. There are three forms of subscriptions: 3 months, 12 months or unlimited. From all beautybox subscriptions Styletone is my absolute favorite! The boxes are available in The Netherlands and Belgium.
