November’s Birchbox – See What’s Inside
This is my favourite Birchbox to date! The packaging is absolutely stunning. I mean STUNNING! And the products inside are so good too. It has a perfect mixture of makeup, skincare and haircare, with products that I am genuinely excited to use.
Calypso St. Barth Figure Eau de Parfum (Full size = $30-$75)
“A Mediterranean-inspired scent featuring notes of fig, violet petals, vanilla and musk.”
I can really appreciate fragrance samples that have a sprayer! They distribute a mist of the scent over a larger area, and tone it down ever so slightly. Plus they’re the perfect purse-size items. I think this is my favourite perfume from Birchbox so far. It’s a nice mixture of floral and warm tones but not too overpowering.
Salon Gioje Keratin Protein Mask (Full size = $40)
“Formulated with pure natural keratin, this mask repairs your locks from the inside out.”
I wish I took a photo of this bright blue substance! It’s so vibrant! Formulated with pure keratin, it helps repair dry or damaged hair to look voluminous and shiny. Unfortunately I haven’t put this one to the test yet, but I do love a good hair mask and I am excited to try it out.
BioRepublic Pomegranate Crush Illuminating Sheet Mask (Full size = $14.50)
“Infused with botanical extracts, this finer mask brightens skin and evens tone.”
It seems sheet masks are all the rage right now, but I have never personally tried one myself. My skin has been on the fritz lately and could use a good refresh, so I am excited to treat myself to a pamper night and relax with this illuminating fibre mask.
LOC One & Done Shadow Stick in On Point (Full size = $12)
“From Birchbox’s new brand: A creaseless, waterproof shadow with shades curated by Tati Westbrook.“
This shadow stick is a beautiful shimmery champagne/taupe shade that looks great all over the lids. The name is quite appropriate because you can literally wear this with a little mascara and be set for the day. It’s very creamy and easy to blend.
theBalm cosmetics FratBoy (Full size = $27)
“This talc-free eye shadow and blue combo gives skin a fresh radiance that makes you look (and feel) young.”
How adorable is this tiny sample? Of course my blush brush doesn’t quite fit in the pan, but the powder is so pigmented and soft that it blends effortlessly on the skin. Just a tap is all it takes, rather than a full-on swirl with a brush. It’s a beautiful peachy-appricot shade with the finest amount of golden shimmer running through it.
Kudos to Birchbox! This box is excellent and contains everything a girl could ask for…especially as we gear up for the holidays!
