Birchbox Haul

Birchbox Haul

Have you ever ran into a store to buy one $20 item and walked out with your wallet crying but your makeup bag making the heart-eyes emoji? Me, right now. Since chopping off my hair, I needed something to add a little texture and volume, so I ran over to the Birchbox store in Soho to grab a bottle. However, while perusing the shelves, I spotted a mascara that I loved... and then the bronzer by the same brand.... and then a new concealer... and then I walked out very poor but very happy

Happy 6 year anniversary to Birchbox! I've been a subscriber to this company for two years now and I'm so happy that they're only getting more successful, which means I get to continue to share with you what comes every month in these gorgeously designed and curated beauty boxes! Two of the most exciting things in this month's box for me was the Milk Makeup mascara (I've been dying to try!) and a purple shampoo from Beauty Protector (a Birchbox-only brand that is ah-may-zing!)

September Birchbox!

It's my favorite time of the month again! It always makes me smile to see that pretty pink Birchbox in my mail! Plus, how pretty are these box designs?? I absolutely love them! 

1. Pop Beauty Pop Portfolio Eyeshadow Palette

This palette has 36 gorgeous shades ranging from pretty creams, rich browns, vivid purples, and wild teals! There's a little something for everyone and encourages you to branch out and try something wild! The shadows are crazy pigmented and last all day (I'm not kidding, ALL DAY) I loved getting to test out this cute little trio!

2. Benefit Gimme Brow

I've been eyeing Benefit's Gimme Brow for a while now, and Birchbox read my mind with this little sample! It gives natural, light pigment and holds brows in place like non other without making them feel glued. 

3. Harvey Prince Hello Perfume

I loved the Harvey Prince Hello Hand cream, and the perfume has the same light, fresh, scent! I love the sample size, because it makes it easy to carry in my handbag for a little spritz mid-day!

4. Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray

If you need volume, look no further! This blowout spray gives amazing lift to my generally flat locks! Just spray into damp hair and brush through right before blow drying and viola!

5. 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

I think this may be my favorite of the box! I have very fair skin (and I'm a college student) which means under-eye circles and puffiness is a daily battle. I saw improvement 5 minutes after my first use (Not at all joking.) I think this may be my miracle in a tube, stay tuned to find out!

August Birchbox Unboxing!

August Birchbox Unboxing!

New month, new Birchbox! This month was probably my favorite in terms of the products I received! I've had a chance to test out all of them a bit and I wish I could buy full sizes of just about all of them! 1. Beauty Protector Protect and Detangler This pretty red bottle claims to be a detangler, heat protector, leave-in conditioner, shine spray, and color protector, all while being weightless and non-greasy. If so, this bottle could be my holy grail. After using it on dry hair before using a flat-iron, it definitely helps frizz, has more shine and doesn't add any weight or grease, but we'll see about its other claims with time. So far, it's a winner! 2. COOLA Organic Makeup Setting Spray COOLA has a lot of great products (especially for the summer months!) I've never tried their makeup setting spray, but it seems to be a fairly decent one. It doesn't hold a candle to the Urban Decay version, but if you're more environmentally conscious, this one is a great option! 3. Harvey Prince Hello Perfume I am, admittedly, a perfume sample hoarder. I love keeping them in my bag for a quick refresher (and I have about 13 extras in a box...).  At first whiff, this one smelled like an old Lemongrass body lotion I had from Bath and Body works in middle school, but after a bit I picked up on the light citrus notes and really liked it! I'm not sure I would purchase the full-size, but it's a lovely light scent if you're not into heavy perfumes. 4. LAQA & Co. Charm School Kit - Humble Brag By far my favorite thing in the box! I expected it to be a very sheer lip balm, but it's actually VERY pigmented and oh so gorgeous! It looks gorgeous on both my lips and cheeks. I am absolutely buying the set of three, which comes with this bright pink, a cherry red, and a light peach. LOVE! I've only very recently gotten into hand creams, and this so far, is my favorite. I liked the Harvey Prince version, but the Supergoop is a bit more hydrating, absorbs quicker, and has a lighter scent.
