Beauteque Mask Maven July 2017 Review

Purchased

You know, I’ve never really given much thought to Beauteque’s themes, and it’s not like I care one way or another, but they do seem to be keeping to them lately, and I really like this one. July’s theme was “Summer Sweets” and (with a couple of exceptions) features a fruit and honey vibe. Considering how much I love all things bee, this is a theme I can get behind. Oh, and I like fruit masks, too. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven July 2017 Review”

Beauteque Mask Maven June 2017 Review

Purchased

As has been the case with Mask Maven for a few months now, they ship on the last day of every month, so my June bag of course arrived mid-July. Admittedly, this is getting annoying, but I’m still enjoying the bags, so I guess I’ll put up with it. I just wish they’d go ahead and call it a July bag instead of June.

Each Mask Maven comes with a pretty sheer drawstring bag and a sheet detailing the masks included that month. You’ll get anywhere from 9-11 masks (usually sheet masks, though there can occasionally be some variation) to the tune of $15 plus shipping. If you live in the U.S., your total will come to about $18.95. If you’re interested in subscribing to Mask Maven (or their beauty box subscription), you can do that here.

Beauteque Mask Maven May 2017 Review

Purchased

Now well into July, believe it or not I’m just now finishing up the May bag from Mask Maven. As I mentioned in my review for the April bag, Beauteque has started shipping out their bags on the last day of the month, so my May bag didn’t arrive until about halfway through June, and my June bag arrived just this week. Add to that, I’m saving reviews until after I’ve actually had the opportunity to try all of the masks.

Beauteque Mask Maven April 2017 Review

Purchased

Yes, I know it’s July. Shut up.

Worth noting, Beauteque had some changes to their shipping starting in in April, but they did at least notify their customers via email and gave us a 15% discount on the next billing to make up for it. I got my April bag in May and bumped up my masking routine a bit to every other day once I got my masks so that I could use them all up before my May bag came in, only to find out that this was the new norm. Beauteque now ships out on the last day of the month, so you’ll get that month’s bag in the following month. Stupid, I know, but at least they’re still fairly reliable when it comes to getting masks to my mailbox. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven April 2017 Review”

Beauteque Mask Maven March 2017 Review

Purchased

I really feel like I’m back in the swing of things with Beauteque Mask Maven every month. (I’m really wanting to try out their Beauty Box as well, but I still have quite a stockpile.) I love that I can get a fun curation of masks every month, many of which I might not have even heard of or thought to try, and it tends to cost me roughly $2/mask (about what I’d normally pay anyway) while also being completely skippable from month to month if I get a little backed up.

Mask Maven would probably be my second favorite subscription service right now– right behind Japan Crate, but that’s food, so it doesn’t count. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven March 2017 Review”

Beauteque Mask Maven February 2017 Review

Beauteque Mask Maven is a monthly subscription. For $15 plus shipping (just under $19 for me), you get a curated bag of 9-11 masks. These are usually sheet masks, but they can vary on occasion. It’s absolutely enough to fill up the month for anyone who does two, sometimes three masks per week, which is nice because you’ll always have a variety of sheet masks on hand. Should you find something you like and purchase a bundle of your own, you can skip a month with Beauteque and take time to try it all out without ended up buried underneath a pile of unused sheet masks.

In other words, there’s no risk of running into the notorious subscription box stockpile with this subscription.

Each month includes a card that gives you more information about each mask that’s included as well as instructions whenever needed, and all masks are packaged in a pretty sheer drawstring bag. When I last grabbed my Mask Maven subscription back in September, they were also including a calendar that gave you an idea as to when to use each mask over the course of 30 days, but I didn’t get one this time. Maybe they’ve discontinued it. I enjoyed it while it lasted. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven February 2017 Review”

Beauteque Mask Maven is a monthly subscription. For $15 and $3.95 shipping, you get a curated bag of 9-11 masks (usually sheet masks). That’s enough to fill up the month for anyone who does two, sometimes three masks per week, which is nice because you’ll always have a variety of sheet masks on hand. Should you find something you like and purchase a bundle of your own, you can skip a month with Beauteque and take time to try it all out without ended up buried underneath a pile of unused sheet masks.

This last part is something I’m going to be taking advantage of in the next couple of months. I ordered a couple of mask sets from Memebox this month and should have plenty to last me into December, so I decided to put my Mask Maven on hold until then. I will, however, be reviewing the other two sets in the meantime. Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven September 2016 Review”

Beauteque Mask Maven Subscription

Mask Maven is a monthly subscription from online Asian beauty retailer Beauteque. Each month you get 9-11 masks, usually sheet masks but occasionally other kids, for $15 + shipping ($18.95 total). It’s not a great deal when it comes to retail value. Usually you’ll end up simply breaking even or maybe a bit better. This one is all about curation and introducing yourself to new brands and products. Considering how new I am to Asian beauty and how deep the sheet mask rabbit hole goes, this is right up my alley.

Beauteque Mask Maven June 2016 Review

Purchased

Okay, yes. I have a subscription box problem. I’ll admit to that freely. That said, I have cut a few of mine going forward due to a rapidly growing stash. I’ll be keeping Ipsy and Sephora (because they’re the best ones I’ve had and only $10 each), and I might be keeping Allure through July, depending on their offerings. Outside of that, I really just don’t need more makeup and probably won’t need much more makeup aside from replacing a few holy grail items as they’re used up for the next year at least.

But I will need skincare, particularly as I dive further down into the Asian skincare rabbit hole. I have a nice little stash of that, too, but there are some items I don’t have as much of and would like to experiment to find what I like, and that’s where my Sephora spending has been going lately.  Continue reading “Beauteque Mask Maven June 2016 Review”
