So I know it’s almost February… but I really wanted to do a vlog post for my January Birchbox this month because it was a good one. Plus I’m nosy and love seeing what other people get in theirs. I’m usually pretty happy with them (endless perfume samples aside), and this one was no exception. One item in particular was definitely my favorite, but this whole package was definitely worth the $10.
Here’s all the loot if you’re not into the vlog situation:
Skinny Chic Perfume (meh)
My Prime Mattifying Moisturizer (love this)
Amika Color Perfection Shampoo (smells amazing)
Deborah Lippmann “The Stripper To Go” nail polish removing mitts (would work great for stubborn-polish)
theBalm Hot Mama! Blush/Highlighter (My FAVE)
Even though the full-size of the moisturizer and shampoo are probably out of my price range, they were both decent-sized samples and I’d like to find a dupe for the moisturizer. The shampoo will fit nicely into my gym bag and I loved the polish removers.
The blush/highlighter from theBalm is amazing, though, and I will definitely be snagging that one. It’s a beautiful golden peach color, and it just looks really nice on my fair skin. And for $20, I think I can justify making that purchase. (Hello, Tarte blushes…)
I also got two kick-ass samples from Urban Decay last month that I’ve been wanting to share:
Urban Decay Lip Junkie Lipgloss (in Midnight Cowboy, $19) is probably one of the best lipglosses I’ve ever tried. It lasts for hours and is super minty and moisturizing. I love it alone or over a lipstick and I just don’t think I can not have it now that I know how glorious it is. And the Supercurl Curling Mascara ($20) is perfect for when you want to really lengthen your eyelashes without going for a thicker, more dramatic look. It also lasts all day but comes off really easily, which is a double bonus. Both of these products are destined to be purchased sometime in the very near future. (AKA when the samples run out.)
Did you guys get anything good in your Birchbox this month? Ever try any of these products?
