March Birchbox

March Birchbox - Southern New Yorker

I love seeing this brightly colored box in my mailbox every month! It's always so exciting to crack it open and find out what's inside! This month was all about hydration! Thick lip balms, repairing hair oils, gel lip stains, and hydrating eye pads. Check it out!

Cargo Under Eye Shadow Palette

I had never heard of Cargo before this month, but man are they a cool brand! Their makeup is high quality and not too pricey, plus they have a whole line of Swimmable Makeup (bookmark for the summer months!) The gold shadow in this little duo is gorgeous, and i'll have to play around with the purple. Not a usual color for me, but we'll see!

Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm

WOW. This stuff is super rich and thick. But a few nights of slapping this on my lips before bed has made such a huge difference! New York air is pretty dry, so chapping has been an issue lately, but this stuff has fixed all that damage in just a few days!

The Balm Cosmetics Stainiac

If I'm being honest, I much prefer the Tony Tints to this. The Balm Stainiac is a very light gel that adds just a hint of color, while Tony Tints is a power punch of color that literally STAINS your lips. (and it's half the price!)

Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads

These should be given to every college student. 3 hours of sleep + 3 cups of coffee + an entire bag of pretzels = VERY puffy under-eyes. I popped these on in the morning while I ate breakfast (and got some very weird looks from my roommates) and by the time I went to do my makeup, they looked 10x better! 

Number 4 Lumiere D'Hiver Restore and Repair Oil

For my dry, bleached hair, there's nothing better than something to moisturize those ends! This hair oil is great for sealing up those split-ends and protecting against everyone's frenemy - the blow dryer.
