A few weeks ago I saw a Cult Cosmetics Facebook status for their Blackbox. This status had a coupon code so I could order this months Mad About Malibu Blackbox for just a penny. I first saw Cult Cosmetics on Facebook back when they first were getting started and I was intrigued. At the time I was doing both IPSY and Glossybox and while I wanted to try Blackbox, I didn't. I already had two monthly subscriptions and adding Blackbox wasn't on my mind then. I was very interested but thought I would wait. Especially since I didn't know if I would like the product or not. So when I saw the penny deal I was all in. I still needed to pay the $5 shipping charge but it was whatever. I knew I was getting two full size nail polishes (normally $12 each) and a BH Cosmetics makeup palette (which is now on sale for $6.95). I had always wanted to try BH Cosmetics and since I hadn't yet I was even more inclined to do this offer.
The normal price for this Blackbox is $19.99 plus $5 for shipping. I would definitely say that for these products that is reasonable. I wish the shipping was already included in the price rather than being separate. I mostly say that because Glossybox and IPSY (and probably other monthly subscription boxes) have the shipping included (or free, however you wish to look at it) in the price.
I definitely would order from Cult Cosmetics again especially since my box included another coupon code but this time for free shipping on my next box! Perfect, right?? I really like their Valentine's Nail Art Kit but one of the three colors from that one was in the box I just received. So..we'll see what they come out with in the future and maybe I'll get another.
I do recommend this for a gift. If you know someone that's into nail polish this would be a great gift for them! I posted a few photos below to show you what it all looks like. And I forgot to mention above that I do really like the nail polish - a lot. A lot a lot. I did one coat of PCH and two for Avalon and I'm really excited to wear Avalon on all my nails this spring!
