Grav3yardgirl Spring 2016 Beautycon Box

» Hello lovies! See what items are in the Spring 2016 Beautycon Box, curated by Bunny aka Grav3yardgirl! See if this quarterly subscription box is worth your coins!


What is the Beautycon box? Normally called the BFF box, the Beautycon Box is a quarterly subscription box curated by a creator. Past boxes include ones from Bethany Mota, Jojo, and Teala Dunn to name a few. You can choose to either pay $100 for the year or $29 every 3 months for 4 boxes, before taxes. I have a referral link here to save $10 off your payment if you would like to save some dough!

This box I am featuring is the Spring 2016 box curated by Bunny Meyer aka Grav3yard girl. This released just in time for Beautycon Dallas. They spent 5 months creating this box picking 12 products with a $130 value. Let's dive in.


The box itself is a lightweight flat box with grid print. It is secured by a mint sleeve with a swirly, tie-dye inspired pattern with Bunny's signature and Beautycon branding.



 The unboxing! The interior is a pinky peach color greeting the person opening the box.


There is a cardboard insert instructing how to share your unboxing. The hashtag for this is #beautyconbox! You can share to YouTube, Twitter, or Instagram. I have the most luck getting engagement from Instagram thus far.


With boxes there are always description cards. Bunny had hers specially made by an artist Chrixstopher on Instagram. It is a water color portrait. He also did the illustration for the creepy baby doll paper. Since I did the unboxing live on YouTube, I don't have a photo of how neatly wrapped everything was (if you would like to see, please refer to the video). Rest assured, everything fit like a puzzle piece in the box and fit in there, with the sliver of extra room padded with more tissue paper.


 Behold, the contents! There was so many great products stuffed inside, let's dissect.


‣ Beautycon x Grav3yardgirl Doll Keychain

This keychain was specially made as memorabilia for Bunny's "Swamp Family" or what she calls her viewers. Hence the name Grav3yardgirl, she loves things creepy and weird. This was a preexisting doll in her collection from the 1800's that Beautycon has sent off and cast into a trinket for fans.

‣ Beautycon x Grav3yardgirl tie dye hair ties

The first fashionable offering in the box, sassy tie-dye hair ties. Bunny is a lover of tie-dye, so they had blue and gator green hair ties made that can also double as bracelets.

‣ The Original Beauty Blender Micro.Mini*

Retails for $18
I was very surprised to see this as a the first item she pulled out as Beautyblenders are known to be high ticket items. It is a great universal tool that anyone can use.

‣ Benefit They're Real mascara*

Retails for $12 in the given travel size
This is such a popular mascara among the beauty community. Although they have provided this in one of the previous boxes, I haven't gotten on before, and it is nice to receive a high end brand mascara.

‣ $20 to dollskill.com/

Another high ticket item! Dollskill is an alternative type clothing website, but there are still options for beauty junkies out there! Some cosmetic brands offered on the site include Jefree Star, LimeCrime, and more

‣ Garnier SkinActive Clean+ Purifying Oil-Free Cleansing Towelettes

Prices vary. Retails around $5.99
Now this is something I haven't seen before - Charcoal in a face wipe. This item is very unique and fun. Definitely something worth trying in full sized packaging.

‣ GLAMGLOW Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment*

Retails for $22
Whoa, Glamglow? This one definitely piqued my interest. With a high ticket price, this definitely adds value and gives incentive into buying the box. Plus, this particular mask is hard to find the squeeze tube, but has the same net weight of product in the travel pot.

‣ Maybelline The Rock Nudes eyeshadow palette*

Retails for $9.99
Of all the things I got from Beautycon, this was the only eyeshadow! This palette contains mattes and shimmers, ranging in cool toned neutrals to a pop of blue, appropriate for smoky looks for a night out or concert.

‣ Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30*

Full size retails for $60
Another universal product for all ages and interests can use. Sun protection! Murad samples are quite pricey, so it is great to see this in the box.

‣ Grav3yardgirl NCLA Nail Wraps | SHOP: shopncla.com/

These nail wraps made by NCLA contain images relevant to Bunny and her brand. More creepy dolls, forests, "alligator" skin, and more.

‣ NYX Matte Finish setting spray*

 Retails for $8
A setting spray! I was definitely influenced to want this product. I've been looking to buy some of the affordable sprays to get my makeup to stay in place more. Happy to see it in the box instead of buying another! This is the full sized bottle.

‣ Pacifica Power of Love lipstick in Tender Heart – exclusive to Target pacificabeauty.com/power-love

 

 This color is actually now sold out at Target, with other shades on sale for $8.99. With purchases of power of love lipsticks, a lipstick is donated to a woman in need. "Tender Heart" is a mauve shade.

Is it worth it?

For the amount of luxury items in the box, it definitely exceeds the price of $25-$29 per box. I am not normally attracted to makeup subscription boxes but this one definitely made me consider it. Since it is quarterly, there is more time to curate a really awesome box with quality items, vs. a lot of low quality items. The downside of the Beautycon boxes is that since it is curated by a different person each time, their tastes may not match yours.

❥ What I'm Wearing

‣ EYES: Jem and the Holograms palette, Naked 3 palette*
‣ LASHES: Eylure Naturalites Double Layered False Eyelashes - 202*
