Carmine Beauty Box (October)

There is a new beauty box in town called Carmine* and now that I have review Glossy Box, Boudoir Prive and the Feel Unique Box I thought it would be good to review this one too.

The first thing I always realise about these boxes is the packaging. I know that some people don’t think the packaging matters too much but I think the presentation is very important. The Carmine box is bigger then any of the other beauty boxes, black on the outside and green and red on the inside. Green and red?! Green and red just doesn’t appeal to me and makes this actual box fall right to the bottom in terms of presentation. I also think that the box is just too big and I doubt they will every fill it. I felt like the box was too empty if the box was smaller I would probably get more excited instead of thinking is that it? One the plus side I do like the red and black slightly different to the usual pink and black.

Really the imporatant thing about the box is the content so what was inside?

Inside the October box there is…

Eye Delight in Peach and Ice-Daniel Sandler
Frat Boy All-in-one Shadow/Blush-The Balm
Nail Repair Natural-Trind
Quenching Sorbet-Crème-Caudalie
Super Moisturising Hand Cream-Balance Me
I was quite impressed with the content of this box for me the two makeup products really attract me and I like that its not all about skin care. I am very keen on Hand Creams so this box is perfect for me! There is a three full size products and two not which is great! Plus, there are none of those tiny perfume samples which I am always disappointed to see in beauty boxes.
As this is the first box that they have released it is hard for me to recommend it as I have no idea what the next one may be like, this could simply be a good one to tempt you in or it could get even better. Everything considered I still prefer the Feel Unique box there was something about the packaging, the size of the box and the content that really appealed to me.
I can not wait to see what the future boxes from Carmine way hold!
The Carmine box is £10 + P&P and is available on a monthly subscription, although if you chose the 12 month plan you get a free box.

    I almost bought this box but I thought I'd wait to see what future boxes were like.

    May try feel unique next. I love the website and I think the boxes will always be dispatched on time 🙂
