May Birchbox Review
I received my May Birchbox early this month. I have really enjoyed all of the boxes I have got so far, but this one unfortunately, left a little to be desired. I was not disappointed in the products themselves, but the amount. I’ll explain as I go. Here’s what I got…
1. Dr. Jart/ Waterfuse BB Cream: So this might as well of not even been in the box. There was seriously enough for about 1/2 of an application and I had such a hard time of getting it out of the tube when I finally did I lost most of it to the kitchen counter. I wish I could give a better review of the product, but I didn’t really get the full effect. It is a tinted moisturizer, sunscreen, and serum all in one.
2. Color Club Nailpolish Disco Nap: This is a fun gold color. It went on really well. I usually don’t stray from OPI too often, but i was impressed with the consistency of this polish.
3. Kerastase/ Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide: I got excited when I saw Kerastase! I have been a fan of this line for a long time, and even as a professional hairstylist I cannot get discounts on this brand. So anything I can sample is exciting! Actually this product was the saving grace for the box. It is a shine-enhancing serum that has a light scent and is extremely lightweight. I was surprised at how much the product spread. A little bit goes a long way. It was nice, but in the world of oils, nothing compares to Moroccan Oil.
4. Stila/ Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: This was also a fun surprise. This liquid eyeliner is a bright royal blue color with sparkles. It looked really cool with my green eyes. I did have to do a couple of applications to get the intensity of the color just right. I even tested the “waterproofness” of it, and to my surprise even the sparkle stayed on. I love Stila makeup, so I am not surprised I like this eyeliner as much as I do.
I also got a few “extras”: A Kerastase shampoo and conditioner sample, and a cute notecard to send a letter to someone. You know a real letter with a stamp and everything. I think I’ll send it to my friend Melissa in New York. :)
