Birchbox Hits


I’ve just received my 6th Birchbox inspired by Glamour magazine and it had me on a high this morning. I now look forward to it every month because there is at least one product that I really like in it. Last month, it was the Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner that I have been wearing practically every day. You don’t have to go over it twice, it lasts all day and is easy to remove! I never used to wear eyeliner this much but recently I’ve been trying to add a little umph to my face. A little eyelid primer, eyeliner, mascara and lip gloss. Some days I’d use the Maybelline BB Cream over my sunblock and moisturizer if I want to look a little more finished but it’s definitely not a staple like the others.

Back to Birchbox! This eyeliner is what made me really look forward to this month’s box as none of the other boxes were pulling me in and I was actually contemplating canceling it. Then Glamour teamed up with Birchbox for one of my best boxes ever. I’ve been wanting to try Stila products but I never remember to get one product to test when I go shopping for make-up and if I don’t see the sign for it, I’m definitely going to pass it. I received a lip glaze in Camera and immediately tried it on. I loved it – not sticky and you don’t have to use a lot. I want to try this set next.

The small bottle next to the Stila lipglaze is a Harvey Prince perfume sample appropriately called Hello that had me feeling like I was floating. It smells amazing! And it boosted my mood so much I just felt like I was on an emotional high. I can’t find the little paper packaging it came in but it did say something about them adding an ingredient to boost your mood. Well it sure worked; I HAVE to get this perfume! It’s definitely a summery scent – not heavy, a hint of flowers with a fruity edge but it would last all day.

It could have just been that I was very excited about this box but the earbuds made me want to go in the gym! I love the colors and Glamour even created a playlist on Spotify for you to listen to. I still have to listen to it (got a little busy after unwrapping) but I’m hoping I’ll have a few to songs that I can add to my gym playlist.

I’ve also been finding different uses for the box after I empty it to add a little organization to what could have been little messes all over. As you can see below, I used my label maker to mark what goes into each box. It’s been a life saver and I haven’t had to go out and buy little containers! If you want to try Birchbox click here. They’re only $10 a month including shipping and they just introduced boxes for men! For my 6 “montheversary” gift I got 20% off a full-size product $25+ which I used to purchase Benefit’s POREfessional  (I don’t have big pores but I want to try this product). So go ahead and give it a try, you never know what’s coming and maybe you’ll stumble upon a product that may change your life! 🙂
