October Birchbox

October Birchbox with Davines LOVE Smoothing shampoo and conditioner, Etat Libre d'Orange Like this perfume, Eyeko Black magic mascara, shiseido ultimune power infusing concentrate, and too cool for school dinoplatz highlighter

I always get so excited when I see that little pink box in my mail! It means a new round of beauty samples to try! This month was no disappointment,  as I absolutely LOVED all of the samples I got the chance to try! 

October Birchbox with Davines LOVE Smoothing shampoo and conditioner, Etat Libre d'Orange Like this perfume, Eyeko Black magic mascara, shiseido ultimune power infusing concentrate, and too cool for school dinoplatz highlighter

 

1. Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner

Davines is an awesome brand with fantastic hair products! I got to try their MINU shampoo and conditioner (for colored hair) in my July Birchbox and loved it, so I was thrilled to try their LOVE shampoo and conditioner (for frizzy hair)! My hair is extremely prone to tangles, and the LOVE products made such a difference! Definitely worth checking out!

2. Etat Libre d'Orange Like This Perfume

This perfume, which is a collaboration with Tilda Swinton, smells like spices, crunchy leaves, crisp air, home-cooking, and everything that is good about fall in a bottle! If you're looking for a new fall scent, here it is!

3. Eyeko Black Magic Mascara

If I could only wear one kind of makeup, it would be mascara, and this formula from Eyeko makes the Top 10 list! It curls, lengthens, adds volume, and is water-resistant (so it stays all day but isn't a headache to get off at night!!)

4. Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate

This luxury liquid is essentially a serum, and while it's amazing (seriously, my skin is SO SOFT) the $65-95 price tag is a little too much. If that's within your price range, go for it! But if you're like me and don't have quite that much to splurge, I would recommend the Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid, my personal favorite. 

5. too cool for school Dinoplatz Highlighter

This illuminating highlighter adds a pretty, subtle glow to makeup. I received the shade #2 baby pink clam, which is perfect for my fair skin. L'Oreal LUMI highlighter is a good drugstore dupe for this, but it's a lot stronger, and you have to be very careful no to go overboard.
