August 2016 Birchbox Review

       

I know I just finished organizing my beauty products but somehow, it has already gone back to a messy state. I swear, I manage to get it all sorted and pretty, close the drawer and once I open it up again, it's all in shambles. I don't know what happens. So here I am again, Birchbox in hand with more products to add to my collection and organize for the millionth time. Oh well!



If you are somehow unfamiliar, Birchbox is a monthly Beauty subscription service. It's one of the original pioneers of the subscription box boom and is the very first box I myself ever received. The cost is $10 per month and includes 4-5 deluxe beauty samples (and occasionally a full sized one too!).


Included is a detailed information card that lets you know a bit about each product you received in your box.


This month's box looks like it will be a good one!


 Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer --- I'm not a giant fan of Bumble & Bumble (please don't hate me for that!) but this isn't to bad! It's a protective primer that's infused with six lightweight oils. It detangles, de-frizzes, and defends against heat damage.


Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Brow Pencil --- Dear lord is this an itty bitty sample! This is a waterproof pencil that grabs onto each hair for nice, natural looking definition. It lasts for up to 12 hours, which is pretty fantastic and the tip of the pencil is angled to ensure effortless shaping. 


Manna Kadar Eyeshadow in 'Fantasy' --- Ok, I love this product and the size of it is fabulous, but I own to many of these now. This particular product and color has been in no less than 6 boxes this summer and I'm beginning to get burned out on it. The product itself is nice though. It's not just in eyeshadow, it also works beautifully as a blush and highlighter!


Hey Honey Trick and Treat Cream Concealer --- I really like this. I'm a big fan of this brand as well. This creamy undereye concealer contains a mixture (active propolis) that honeybees collect from nature. It naturally helps to revitalize, smooth, and hydrate the entire eye area.


Oribe Apres Beach Wave & Shine Spray --- Awesome brand, awesome packaging, and awesome sample size! This luxe, color-safe spray delivers beachy, texturized waves. It also hydrates dry hair, boosts shine, and gives natural UV protection to your locks!


This month's box was a pretty fantastic one. I loved the assortment and the sizes this month were really nice. An all around great box, in my opinion!
