It’s that time of the month again where the monthly subscriptions start to roll in. The first one that I received this month was Birchbox. I ended up getting the Birchbox plus option to get the Ruffian Nail Polishes and Remover wipes. I was very excited about both of these. If you want to sign up for a Birchbox subscription, Click Here.
Birchbox – “Fashionista”
This month I got the Fashionista box. September meals the end of summer and for some, it means going back to school but it’s also Fashion Month. Every box also comes with a card explaining the items included and some tips on how to use them. Let’s get into the good stuff.
This mascara has been something I’ve always wanted to try as I’ve heard great things about this company. I love how even if I forget to curl my lashes, it still lifts and volumizes them.
I love Cynthia Rowley eyeliners for the waterline. They glide on so nice and smooth and they don’t irritate my eyes. They say that it’s smudge proof, but I think this stuff smudges fairly easy. I normally have to set it with a powder if I’m wearing it on the lid. When I wear it on the waterline, I normally have to apply it a few times throughout the day. But the colors are great and very pigmented.
I’ve tried a few things from the dr. brandt line so I was excited to try this out. I love pore refining masks and this is another one that I liked. It goes on clear, then turn a light blue color so you know it’s done. I love the way my face feels after using this and I would probably buy a full size once I’m done with this tube.
This lotion smells amazing!! I think its a lemony, minty scent. I also love the light formula. When you rub it in, it feels great! Nice and silky-smooth. I noticed a difference of my dry patches after the first use. If it keeps this up, I will be buying the full sized of this one as well.
I haven’t tried this out yet, but I am very excited to try this product! 🙂 I’m all for trying new conditioners to help making brushing easier as well as cutting the blow-dry time. Can’t wait to see how this product does.
Birchbox Plus – Ruffian Blush Collection
When I saw these colors, I knew I had to have them! Since Birchbox is $10/month, I only paid $12 for this set of 3 polishes and 10 Remover wipes, so that means I paid for the remover wipes and got the polish free. 🙂 These polish remover wipes are AMAZING!! They smell like a nice perfume and 1 wipe will remove all the polish from 10 fingers (and probably 10 toes). The wipes are black which is pretty neat too.
This blush collection is great! I think all 3 will be favorites this fall. I decided to try the one on the left first which is called, “No More Tears”. The pinky color is called “Love to Love” and the maroon is called “Lady of the Night”. I am SO ready for fall so I can wear more of these colors. 🙂
Was it worth it?
It was $10 for the box and actually got about $53 worth of products. I would say YES, it was so worth the value to get this box with the add-on of the plus. AND you still get Birchbox points for reviewing which really makes this worth more. I would say that I was very happy with this box and am excited to see what October has in store.
