First, received the much touted and revered Birchbox. For a monthly fee of $10 a month, this subscription comes around the middle of the month. A very simple box arrived which contained a card that identified the contents within along with the items. The wrapper, although simple, was very cute. It was like opening a great little gift. The items that I received were the new scent from Catherine Malandrino, a facial cleanser from K6 Skincare, a LAQA & Co. Lip Pencil, the Noir Cosmetics Eyeliner, and Whish Shaving Cream. I enjoyed this beauty box it had a little of everything granted not necessarily items I would choose, but things that I have either never heard of or items that are just outside my comfort zone.
Catherine Malandrino – the Style de Paris fragrance ~ Although for the price, I probably would never try this scent. I actually enjoyed the light, fresh, and flowery scent. I’m not a flowery scent kind of gal, but I liked the crispness of this scent. Very fresh and light, if I had an opportunity I’d probably buy this given the chance.
K6 Skincare – Clean Antioxidant Facial Cleanser ~ I haven’t had the chance to see if this long term helps, but I liked the texture, feel and the way it lathers. I’m hoping to use this a few more times and if its something I love I will post again.
LAQA & Co. Sheer Lip Lube Pencil in Bees Knees (Coral) ~ I love chunky lip pencils. I loved the way this felt, but the color was just a bit too light for me. I would try this again, but in a different color.
Noir Cosmetics – Long Wear Eyeliner in Black ~ I tend to use mostly liquid eyeliner as eyeliner transfers to my upper lid. I loved the feel and its very pigmented. I wore it most of the day and it stayed somewhat, but transferred quite a few times, so this isn’t something I would use normally,
Whish – Shave Crave Shaving Cream in Acai Grapefruit ~ I love this stuff, it has a great smell, feels great, and makes your skin feel nice. I will definitely be purchasing this again.
I enjoyed this beauty box and plan on continuing to receive it for the immediate future at least.
