Birchbox May 2012



I’m a little late on posting my box but here are the contents. I decided to cancel my subscription this month too also. I collected 100 points from the expired Befine products from last months box and used my points towards a bottle of Purity by Philosophy. My favorite cleanser. I haven’t tried anything from this box either. I am looking forward to trying the Mascara when I finish my current one. (Maybelline.) In the end, I think I wasted my money. 5 boxes and I only enjoyed one-three products.

April Birchbox

I received my April Birchbox a couple of days ago and just got around to taking some pictures. Here are the content. I’m going to be honest, I’m not exactly pleased with this months box. The only thing I was happy about was the lip balm, very nourishing.. But the color is a little off for my skin tone. I’ll post a picture of the color tomorrow. I tried one of the wipes before my workout to take off my makeup, Didn’t really work well to take it off but they do smell good and didn’t really irritate my eyes. I would recommend them more for before bed, or in the morning. I’m looking forward to trying the detergent next week since I use hypoallergenic soaps right now. The Befine contained samples of a face wash and spf moisturizer, and I haven’t worn the Perfume yet, I’m still working on my Juicy Couture sample (that I’ve been compliment on.) I’ll try to write a review for the contents by next week.

March 2012 Birchbox Product Review

So this is the Tarte Lip Stain in “Lucky” that I received in my March Teen Vogue Birchbox. It runs about $24.00 and I have to be honest, It didn’t make much of a difference in the appearance of my lips as you can see from the picture below. It does go on matte which I like since I’m not a fan of lipsticks. But I did have to add some gloss for you to notice the color. Its too pink for me. I’m more of a nudes girl so if I had a choice I would pick up another color. I do plan on using it though. It adds a nice touch of color while still looking natural. I would also like to add that it is very moisturizing, which is a plus.

February Birch Box

Received my February Birchbox today. The second one I’ve gotten.  Here’s a look inside.

And the list of Contents

The perfume was the only thing I tried so far. It came off a little strong at first but a few hours later I can barely smell it. Which is a good thing. But I will give a more detailed review in a couple of weeks when I’ve had a chance to try everything.

Tape Eyeliner?

I received my February Birchbox today and inside I found these.

Tape Eyeliner.. I’m not fond on the heavy eyeliner look on me. I have sensitive eyes so the more I put on them the more they water and itch. These just sound kind of uncomfortable. They’re made from medical grade tape and may cause rashes. I can see these being used for Photo Shoots but not for everyday use . What if you start to laugh or cry, will the tape become loose? I guess I’ll have to try them on to find out and then write another post about it.
