From one beauty junkie to another <3

First of all I would like to apologize but these pictures are from the Birchbox site because I didn’t have time to take proper photos. 😦

Here’s what I got:

1. Modcloth headband- this headband is kind of neat but I don’t see myself ever wearing it.

2. stila stay all day 10-in-1 hd beauty balm- smallest sample ever, I’ve tried this at Ulta before and didn’t like it anyway.

3. theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac- decently sized but I’m not really one for red lip products.

4. Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume- smells pretty good but the price turns me away.

5. Melvita Floral Water- smells nice, maybe a little strong

Overall I’m not really thrilled about this months box. Your thoughts?

Time for another Birchbox! Here’s what I received:

Miracle Skin Transformer Body- not really a fan of this as it seems a little too dark for my skin. I do use the Miracle Skin Transformer that is meant for your face everyday and love it!

20120510-192831.jpg
Miss Dior- this smells amazing!

20120510-192917.jpg

20120510-192921.jpg
Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo- certainly excited to give this a try.

20120510-193010.jpg

20120510-193015.jpg
Dior Extase Mascara- Excited to give this a try too. I love the DiorShow New Look Mascara but the DiorShow Original Mascara not so much.

Overall I’m satisfied with the box this month. What was in your birchbox?


April Birchbox time!

1. Erno Laszio soap- not interested. :/
2. Yogini- again? Repeat sample. 😦
3. Juice Beauty Moisturizer- okay 🙂
4. Zoya Bevin- love Zoya. 😀
5. Say Yes To Blueberries wipes- I will make use of these I’m sure.

Overall not too impressed with this box but since the last 2 have been pretty good I guess I can’t complain. Do tell, what came in your box?


Here is my March 2012 Birchbox!

Twistband hair tie- orange. I’ve gotten one of these before in black but at the time my hair was too short to use it so I’ll give this one a go.

20120314-170935.jpg
Annick Goutal fragrance. Another perfume sample. Never fails.

20120314-171030.jpg

Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment. I’ve wanted to try this out but thought it was a little overpriced so I’m excited to see if it would be worth purchasing.

Do tell! What was in your box?


Here’s what I received and my thoughts on my February 2012 Birchbox.

20120210-190248.jpg

20120210-190259.jpg
Beauty Blender- I’ve tried other products like this before but I’m excited to give this one a try!

20120113-225411.jpg

20120113-225418.jpg

1. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy- while I’m tired of fragrance samples I like Juicy Couture scents so I’m okay with this.

20120113-225547.jpg

20120113-225552.jpg

2. Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash: I have read some great reviews on this so I’m excited to use it with my clarisonic.

20120113-225715.jpg

20120113-225724.jpg

20120113-225730.jpg

3. Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Peacock: so exciting! Full size and beautiful.

20120113-230015.jpg

20120113-230020.jpg

4. VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Face-Hand-Body Lotion: a lotion that’s suitable for face, body, and hands? Doesn’t seem like a good idea. Eh.

20120113-230236.jpg

20120113-230241.jpg

5. Lärabar Mini Bar- food again? Even as an extra I’m not okay with this.

20120113-230534.jpg

20120113-230539.jpg

6. Magnet and some ideas for clarity: cute!

What was in your box??


I received my December Birchbox today and this is what was inside! Enjoy!

20111210-192503.jpg
Benefit Porefessional- no need for me to test this, I already love it! Glad to have another sample tube.

20111210-192640.jpg

20111210-192647.jpg
Harvey Prince Yogini- the enclosed card said its a calming scent with notes of sandalwood. Not a fan.

20111210-192822.jpg

20111210-192827.jpg

20111210-192833.jpg

20111210-192839.jpg

20111210-192844.jpg
Jouer lip gloss in Birchbox Pink- I really like the way this felt and it’s not too sticky. The color is pretty sheer, I wish it was more pigmented. And this is the smallest sample ever.

20111210-193026.jpg
Olie Biologique oil- the card says it’s multitasking and can be used on body, face, and hair. I was too aggravated to test it because a fourth of it leaked all over my box. :/ see below.

20111210-193311.jpg
Showstopers fashion tape- I really have no use for this.

20111210-193415.jpg

20111210-193421.jpg
Eboost natural energy booster- really? No comment.

Overall I’m satisfied only because of the Benefit and lipgloss. I emailed Birchbox about the leakage so we will see how that goes.
