Combining Birchbox reviews! I know these are late. Bear with me.
First up is the August monthly box! The theme was Finishing School.
The always simple & recognizable Birchbox.
Insert about the theme.
The items laid out.
Stila Stay all day liquid lip stick in Beso. I already had a sample from Sephora but I hadn’t tried it! I used it in a look and for the most part it really did last all day! LOVE IT!
I haven’t tried the hair product yet, I will be getting a haircut soon and be able to style again. The mattifying gel….is awful. It smells medicinal and had basically no effect on me. The whish body wash smells AMAZE, which i already expected because of the lotion sample I got from Hautelook. I haven’t tried the deodorant swipes, they are tucked away for an emergency!
Also included was this coupon for Ann Taylor! Use code BIRCHBOX at anntaylor.com to redeem.
With the exception of the gel this was a decent box. I love the Stila lippie and am so glad I have 2 sample sizes of it to go through before I actually have to buy it.
Number two! The Limited Edition Head of the Class box. I bought this for the feels aka nostalgia. and nail polish.
This box was enormous! Look at the tissue paper…and even air bubbles!
wow. aaaaaaaaaaall the way in the bottom of this HUGE box. It was consequently difficult to get it out of the box! Here you can see the box and the free with purchase body gel product. i havent tried that yet.
It smells pretty good, a little on the muskier side. good for a date night, mayhaps? (if i ever HAVE one again…)
To show what it looks like.
the “agenda” of the items!
This linen bag is adorable! I already have so many cute little bags from Ipsy but who cares? NBD. MOAAARRRRRR.
The inside is lime green! It was MEANT for me.
Friendship bracelets! These are a step up from the ones we had as kids. Totally cute!
nail sequins! I am always looking for new nail art to try…you can expect to see this in an upcoming manicure I’m sure.
bobby pins! these look nice and sturdy, which i need with my thick heavy hair!
Stila lip glaze!
swatched. This looks like it will be good for those ‘natural’ days.
Face wash! I did try this, it doesn’t seem to be as thorough as my philosophy or suki foaming exfoliator, but will be handy in a pinch or to throw in an overnight bag.
one pump (*tee hee*)
Color club! I already loved the colors from previous boxes and I don’t have a lot of neutrals so the grey shade was particularly welcome.
Flamingo & Silver Lake
Cute little notebook! Im constantly making lists and doodling doodles. I go through notebooks like bread.
Arranged nicely! I’m getting better at this, guys!
