I’ve had a chance to use and review all of the products from my May bag and decide on how much I liked them. So now it is time to do my box wrap up.

In case you don’t remember, here is a summary of the Awesomeness level:

Box Awesomeness Level Review (AL)

  • 5 points for an item that surpasses everything else I’ve tried and becomes my #1 choice for what role it fulfills
  • 4 points for an item that becomes added to my permanent collection of cosmetics and I will repurchase
  • 3 points for an item that joins my “I might buy this again” list
  • 2 points for an item I finished or will finish the entire sample of but in the end decided not to re-purchase
  • 1 point for an item that I tried and immediately threw out/gave away
  • 0 points if the item was a duplicate of something from a previous bag/box/kit that only scored a 1 in that box – meaning I knew enough to not even bother with trying it.
  • Don’t forget that I subtract 1/2 point for samples that can only be used 2 or fewer times.

The New Black Runway Colors – Midnight Blue and Yellow (Electrical Banana)
Sample Size: 0.25 oz
Full Size: 1.0 oz
Full Size Price:  $35.00
Sample Value: $8.75

AL<- 4 I liked these but they are not replacements for all other nail polish – just a great addition to a polish collection.

L’Oréal Paris Wear Infinite Pressed Eyeshadow – 901 Sweet Chemise
Sample Size:  0.08 oz
Full Size:  0.08 oz
Full Size Price:  $3.00
Sample Value: $3.00

AL<- 3 It was nice, and I’ll keep it but I don’t think I’ll get more L’Oréal unless there was a great sale.

Erno Laszlo The Hollywood Collection
Sample Size: 5x 0.03 oz
Full Size: 5x 0.5 oz
Full Size Price:  $125.00
Sample Value: $7.50

AL<- 2 I liked the velvet night cream but the rest just were not amazing – and it is quite expensive.

Naked Princess Shine luscious lip gloss
Sample Size: 0.008 oz
Full Size: 0.1 oz
Full Size Price:  $26.00
Sample Value: $2.08

AL<- 3 I probably won’t buy more but I might if I see it below retail price. I will definitely keep using it till the samples run out.

Bambola Beauty Açaí Anti-Oxidant Cleansing Cream
Sample Size: estimated – 0.25 oz
Full Size:  6.0 oz
Full Size Price:  $30.40
Sample Value: $1.26

AL<- 2 It was neat to try but I threw it before I finished it.

Awesomeness level: 4+3+2+3+2=14   14/5=2.8.  That is really not too bad. I enjoyed trying all these different brands I’d never heard of (except for the L’Oréal). 

Total Bag Value $22.59. I am glad I had the chance to try all of these.
