Hi ladies! Guess what arrived in the mail yesterday? My Birchbox!
This month’s theme is Wanderlust.
In addition to the samples, Birchbox included some fold-out postcards inspired by their favorite cities.
Now, on to the good stuff:
The first product I received was a Birchbox and Color Club collaboration. They created a set of four polishes inspired by four cities. I got the shade London Calling, which is a neon mint color. The pigmentation is fantastic; what you see is one coat! I would repurchase this but the sample size is so generous that I won’t need to for a long time!
Polish is Baker Street by Nails Inc.
Then I received Juicy Couture Couture La La perfume ($19-90). I’m not a fan of this scent. It smells very “old-lady” to me. It’s just too heavy and over-powering for my taste. I will not be repurchasing.
Then I got Kerastase Fondant Chroma Captive – Treat ($41). This is a moisturizing hair mask designed to lock in color. I don’t color treat my hair, so I can’t tell you if it helps with that or not. I can tell you, however, that I’m not a fan of this. It smells too heady and old for my tastes. It’s pretty runny, too, and I don’t think the results justify the high price tag.
The final product I received was Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick in Quick Kiss ($26.55). Quick Kiss is a bold orange color. This claims to be glossy, but it looked like a satin finish on my lips. The pigmentation blew me away! One swipe completely covered by lips in a bold orange color. Even after it rubbed off, I was left with a orange-pink stain on my lips. I probably won’t repurchase this. as I have a ton of lip products already. Plus, I love the color, but it isn’t something I would wear day after day, so I can’t justify spending that much money for a color I will only wear occasionally.
I was supposed to receive a Wash and Satin Bar from the Laundress as my lifestyle extra, but it did not get put into my box. Luckily, the Customer Service person was really nice. They are sending me another bar, and I will update this as soon as I get it.
What did you get this month?
Note: this was purchased by me.
