Walmart Beauty Box Fall 2019 Review – Trendsetter Subscription Box

By Kimberly

My Fall 2019 Walmart Beauty Box review is ready. I’m happy it got mailed earlier in this season, so there is more space between this and the Winter 2019 Walmart Beauty Box. This is a subscription box that gives you the items for free as long as you pay $5 for the shipping. Your first $5 charges when you subscribe, and a box from the current season will ship to you within a few weeks. Future boxes will incur the $5 charge as the box ships. While this box gets released each season, the release date always varies. Walmart will email you before it releases to remind you to update your account information. Sometimes, it sends boxes right after you update. Other times, it will tell email you to update your account, then still wait weeks to ship your box.

How Many Box Variations Are There?

There are only two types of boxes, Trendsetter and Classic. Items placed inside the boxes are random, so your Trendsetter box could vary from mine. Classic boxes can vary from one another as well.

Can I Opt in to a Certain Type of Box?

Most younger subscribers get a Trendsetter box and older subscribers get a Classic Box. That is not always the case though. Some will use a fake birthdate one way or the other to trigger the box they want. Walmart started me on a Classic Box, but it switched me to a Trendsetter Box in the Spring of 2016. I’ve always used my real birthday, so I am unsure why it switched me from one to the other. A reader mentioned that you can switch but short of playing with your profile or contacting Walmart, I am unaware of how to switch it.

Which Box is Better, Classic or Trendsetter?

I’ve seen times when the Classic boxes look better and other times when the Trendsetter boxes look better, but the Trendsetter boxes seem better overall.

Do the Samples Repeat?

The samples repeat, because there is no beauty profile. Boxes get sent at random. No one keeps track of what you received in the past, so there is no way to know you already received something. Because Walmart eventually runs out of samples and gets new ones in, you should not continue to get the same products over and over. Samples should repeat in no more than 3-4 boxes. Even when they do, the odds that you will get the same sample in three boxes in a row are small.

Why is the Value Inconsistent?

It is not uncommon for some members to receive low value boxes (worth $10 or less) and others to receive high value boxes (worth $20 or more). There are times when one member might get 4 items, and another member will get the same four items plus four more. This always makes me wonder why not just stick 6 in each box instead of leaving one member thrilled and the next disappointed. I call it the luck of the draw, and it tends to balance out on average unless you are always lucky or always unlucky. Some of my boxes are unlucky, and others are lucky. Most of them fall somewhere between the two. For $20 a year, I am willing to gamble.

Walmart Fall 2019 Beauty Box Trendsetter Overview

The box design does change at times. This one for Fall 2019 is a plain white cardboard with a maroon logo.

Everything comes loose inside the box. It was wrapped in tissue, and it does seem to help thing arrive intact most of the time.

Some boxes have coupons, but this box did not.

Walmart Fall 2019 Beauty Box Trendsetter Review

Walmart did not assign a theme to the 2019 Fall Beauty Box, but it did include an insert that says Fall Faves. There are 6 items in the box, including the foil. Five are items I place value on, so each item costs $1.

The Biore Witch Hazel ULTRA Deep Cleansing Pore Strip is worth $0.98. I received this in my last Walmart Beauty Box. I do not really get clogged pores, so my son tried it. My husband used a charcoal one at the same time and got a better result. This time, I’ll have them switch and report back on who gets a better result.

The Schick Intuition f.a.b. Women’s Razor retails for $8. I’ve never seen a non electric razor where you could go forward or backward. That makes this interesting to me, because it could speed up shaving the way cursive speeds up handwriting. We’ll see how adventurous I get, because I am still concerned with going both ways.

The 0.05oz Lost In Paradise by Sofia Vergara Eau de Parfum is worth $1. I hate the vial. It is the kind that is really hard to open, then gets all over your fingers once you finally open it. This has crisp nashi pear, tropical gardenia and sensual golden woods. My fingers tell me it will have a nice oceanic smell that Sofia describes as Floriental Fruity.

The 1oz Clean&Clear lemon zesty scrub is worth $1.19. This says it buffs and brightens with gentle micro-scrubbies. I like the idea of a Vitamin C scrub, but I hope it is not too rough.

The full-size 0.13oz NYX Professional Makeup Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick in Cheekies Lipli 16 retails for $4.19 (currently on sale for $2.61). That price is ridiculously lower than it is everywhere else, so buy it here if you want it.

I am not really a fan of this liquid lipstick formula nor would I select this color, but I will give it a try now that it is here. Some colors perform differently, so it might be better than my past experience with other shades. Once I wear this, I will edit in a picture and a review.

The 0.14oz foil of NIVEA Oil Infused Lotion Coconut is a small sample for a body moisturizer. Unless I can seal a sample or it is sold as a single use product, I do not place value on it. I actually placed a similar size of a NIVEA lotion in my October Foil challenge. It was only enough for my back and arms. When I am given a sample of anything, I expect enough for a single application at the bare minimum. If it falls short, that is disappointing. This is a different product, but the foil looks and feels the same as the one I recently tried. Assuming this is similar, I can say it does moisturize well for a thin lotion. That also makes it easy to work into the skin.

Was the Fall 2019 Walmart Beauty Box Worth It?

The box value is $15.36. That brings the average box value for the year to $13.04. My personal value is at least $14.38, because I will keep everything but the Biore Strip. If I do give away the pore strip it will be to someone in my immediate family meaning my value is full. It is a lot better than my last box, so I am happy with the value. Had I seen this ahead of time like you can with the Target Beauty Box, I probably would have purchased it, although the razor is the only thing I am really excited for. Everything else, I really could take or leave. Have you subscribed yet? The summer boxes are still available.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.

Deal or No Deal? What Do You Think?
