BDJ Box Elite May 2016: Summer Love – A Revlon Exclusive Box | Unboxing & First Impressions
They actually shipped these boxes last June 1, 2016. I know, it’s way late and I’m quite disappointed as well because usually they ship their boxes during the 2nd week of the month, and sometimes on the 20th. But now… Well, let’s just see if the items inside are worth the wait…
Revlon Luminous ColorSilk Buttercream (300 ml | Php 450) – I would love some hair color included in my box, however, I find this a bit too dark, considering that I also have a brown hair, I don’t think it will show. I wish they included a different shade/color instead so it’ll be more usable. But that’s just me.
Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator (30 ml | Php 825) – I’ve been wanting to get this for myself because EmilyNoel83 really liked this. I got the shade “Pink Light” and this shade has a nice pink tint with a ton of silver micro-glitters, it’s actually quite noticeable. It can provide that youthful, radiant glow that you want, but the specks of glitter may be an issue for those with problematic skin. Also, this is not for those who are into really shimmery, intense highlighters. This is a lot more subtle and more beginner-friendly.
Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara (85ml | Php 650) – I found out that over the course of my beauty blogging career, I have been very picky when it comes to mascaras. Because only a few works for me. With that being said, this one didn’t work for me. I tested it out and after three hours, I can feel that it’s still wet. It didn’t dry nor set, it didn’t give me any volume/length. It ruined my face makeup by the end of the day, I was kinda disappointed. I in fact vented about it in my Snapchat. Bottom line is, this is a product that you’re either going to hate or love. As for me, I think I’ll pass. But again, that’s just me.
Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Matte Eye Pencil (122g| Php 575) – Hmmm.. I like the eyeliner because it seems to be smudge-proof, however, I have no idea why would they include a yellow matte eye pencil, considering that not a lot of women who gets this box will be able to use it. Play with it, perhaps, or use it during special occasions, but to fully utilize it? I don’t think so. I wish they just included a more wearable color, like black, brown, grey or dark navy blue even.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color (5.9ml | Php 575) – This is one of my faves in this box. I just wish it’s in a different shade, but regardless, I get why it’s pink, because it’s summer. Nevertheless, I’m glad that they included something that’s recently launched here in this box.
Revlon Nail Enamel (14.7g | Php 225 ) & Revlon Transforming Effects Nail Enamel (14.7g | Php-250) – Okay, I love these. You guys know that I love Revlon Nail Polishes because they’re often good so I’m good with these
Revlon Expert Tweezer; Slant Tip (17g | Php 150) – Yay! New tweezers!
Revlon Diamond Collection Nail File (17g | Php 150) – They already gave us one of these during one of their events way back and I still have it. But nevertheless, it’s still nice to have an extra. But daaaammnnn! That’s already Php 150? Srsly?
So those are all of the items that are included in last year’s BDJ Box Elite. Let me start with my favorite items: I loved the nail polishes, the HD Matte Lip color and the face illuminator is also a good addition to the box. Now with the things that I’m not so cool with, first, the delivery. It arrived this month, instead of last month. They mentioned in their Facebook page that they encountered some issues with regards to the product churva but still, I would be lying if I say I’m not disappointed. Second’s the hair color and the matte eye pencil. Wrong shades, I think. But again, that’s just me. The others are okay, I guess.
These boxes are worth Php 1,480 per box but they promise to give you at least twice of what you paid for. Now let’s see…
Revlon Luminous ColorSilk Buttercream
Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator
Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara
Revlon PhotoReady Kajal Matte Eye Pencil
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color
Revlon Nail Enamel
Revlon Transforming Effects Nail Enamel
Revlon Expert Tweezer; Slant Tip
Revlon Diamond Collection Nail File
If you ask me, BDJ Boxes (Elite or not) are worth it since you always, ALWAYS get double the amount of what you’ve paid for. This includes last month’s edition. With this box you get nearly Php 4,000 worth of not only makeup but also hair and nail care products.
Now do I think it’s worth the wait? Uhm.. I think so, yeah. Since there are a lot more products in this box that I actually like, I think it still is worth the wait. Tbqh, I think it really depends on the person receiving this box/subscriber. Some people, the more they wait, the higher their expectations are, and it’s not that easy to get around that. Given that this box is late, well, you get the idea… For me, this box is a hit and miss. There are items that I liked, and some are like meh..
