IT FINALLY CAME! The most wonderful time of the month… I desperately check my mailbox every day in the beginning of the month hoping to find a pretty pink box inside. Yes, I’m talking about Birchbox. If you don’t have a subscription, you are totally missing out! Even if your looking for a gift for someone, this is perfect. My subscription started by my best friend giving me a 6-month trial for my birthday, boom she nailed it.
Anyways, let’s see what they had in store for me this month!
Let’s talk about The Beauty Crop PB&J Smoothie Stick. First off the sample size is bigger than my index finger, its huge! It’s more of a pink-mauve color, and it has a creamy smooth texture. Definitely going to be purchasing this!
My next favorite thing this month was the Oribe Dry Texturing Spray. Pretty expensive, but the texture it gives you is totally worth it! The little sample size packs so much power, that as soon as I sprayed it into my roots, my fine flat hair looked like Claudia Shiffer in a photo shoot.
Dr. Jart+ Every Sun Day 30 UV Sun Fluid – most expensive sunscreen I’ve ever had in my cosmetic case. It was lightweight and non-sticky, plus it was super hydrating! It will be perfect for the upcoming vacations!
Ok, call me crazy, but I don’t wear a lot of make up – it makes my face feel too greasy, and I hate that feeling. I’m all about a light moisturizer, some blush and mascara. So I’m not sure what’s going on with the fad of BB cream. Birchbox sent me one, Marcell BB Cream Golden Glow. It was light when I put it on, but it gave me a dewy texture that I wasn’t the biggest fan of. The reviews for it are great on the website, so if your into BB creams I would give this a try.
Lastly, Benefit Gimme Brown Volumizing Fiber Gel, now this I can get behind. I have my father’s eyebrows, unruly. This was awesome, it kept things in place all day and felt so light I forgot I put it on! It also made my eyebrows thick in parts that are typically too thin. I’m a huge fan of Benefit, I own the “They’re Real Mascara” and “They’re Real! Push-up Eyeliner”, so I’ll be adding this gem to the collection.
