Handmade Beauty Box
With all the subscription boxes out there that I have tried, I can’t believe I did not try this one sooner. This is the Handmade Beauty Box, where you can make your own makeup and bath products. Every month you receive everything you need to be well on your way to creating your own colors and products. The best part about this box is that they only cost $34.50 and that includes shipping.
I received the lipstick box a couple of weeks ago, I got so far behind with my package delays. Finally today, I had a chance to check it out. I have to say first of all, I am not very DIY oriented, but I would like to be. I can do small projects, but when it comes to following directions and not getting bored, well I can’t do it. The best part about this box is that it only took me about 20 minutes to make. I only made a few because of the short time, but you can make 24 lipsticks with this box. Considering what lipsticks cost now a days, that is a great deal. Inside the box you have everything you need to make you lipstick tubes, even the packaging and labels.
It is actually very simple to make your own lipstick using this box. The first step to take the base and melt it in the container that was included in the box. The base is very soft and does not clump at all. After the base is soft you then divide it in half. Next, it is time to play with the pigments. This has to be my favorite part. I love bold colors, so when I saw that mica pigments were included I was ecstatic. They are super pigmented.
Once the you have the color how you want it, all you have to do is fill up the tubes. You need to let the new lipsticks sit about 1-2 hours and they are ready for use. In all I am super impressed with this box and I can really tell that they only include high quality ingredients in their boxes. The directions are very easy to follow, even for those of us that have a hard time following directions (I can admit, I am one of those people). For the price and quality, I highly recommend checking out this box! I think that it would be neat to try out the others, what do you think?
