One of the newest companies to join the beauty box band wagon is Red Carpet Box, and they are trying to move above and beyond the simple box full of itsy bitsy samples and foil packets of beauty brands. In each Red Carpet Box you will find actual full sized products from labels you love and trust, generally valued at around $150. Red Carpet Box was founded in 2012 and has steered away from a subscription-based formula. Not only do customers have the option to just pay for one box at a time for $25 each (plus $5.99 shipping and handling in the US), there’s also no cancellation fee. They also add jewelry and other fashionable accessories, too.
The special Holiday Red Carpet Box (a $300 value)—which comes with an Elizabeth Arden hot pink tote bag—is brimming with gifts perfect all year round. We love that the company samples products from both big brands and small labels: Tallulah Soaps in Coconut Milk Lime Bliss and Blue Dragon Fairy Strawberry Lip Balm make up the lesser known beauty companies. Red Carpet Box also includes a wide range of Elizabeth Arden products including the Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant, Exceptional Lipstick in Fiesta, a beautiful party-perfect pink, Ceramide Lash Extending Treatment Mascara in black, and a Four-Piece Eye shadow Palette in Bronze, Pink Petal, Sun, and Beach, which makes us all yearn for the summer.
For lips, Red Carpet Box has you covered. We love the additions of Balmshell Lip and Cheek Smear and Lipology Glyco-Protein Collagen Booster. A finishing spray by Joimist Firm, Bulgari Soap, Jane Cream Eye Shadow in Lilac and Gold, Hard Candy Just Nails in Envy, a rich emerald green color (the 2013 Pantone Color of the Year), and Pop Beauty Smokey Eye Magnet Primer and Pop Paint Duelette Liquid Shadow Paint in Gilded/Glean round out the rest of the full-size products.
And just in time for all holiday parties: some accessories to really make your outfit pop. The Red Carpet Box also comes with a Stila Backstage Beauty Flower Accessory as well as a necklace and earring set in gold and pearl, a set of pink and red bead earrings, and a colored pearlescent stone bracelet.
With makeup, jewelry and handbags, Red Carpet Box has something for everyone’s best holiday looks. Now all you need is a perfect cocktail dress to go with it all!
