It’s summertime & Birchbox has been embracing it and celebrating it right along with me!
First of all, can I just say, how beautiful this last box is!!! Birchbox partnered with Rifle Paper Co, this season to celebrate the beautiful blooms of spring & summer. But, the outside of the box is just the prelude.
There is beautiful stuff on the inside too!
So, here are a few of my favorite beauty products from recent boxes… I couldn’t wait to share them with you!
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, in black ($16)
Love, love, love this eyeliner!
I guess I always had this misconception that black liner was too heavy, too domineering, and not right for my eye shape and eye color, BUT boy was I wrong! I have gotten more compliments on my eye make up in recent weeks than ever before! So, if that’s not a glowing endorsement, I don’t know what is!
It goes on smooth, stays on all day, doesn’t budge or smudge, and is easy to apply.
And I love the narrow felt tip! It’s sturdy and the perfect size for a nice, thin line on top or below your lids.
Amika Perk up Dry Shampoo, full size $22 at Sephora
Very absorbent, gives hair great texture, volume, and bounce, and leaves it with a clean fresh scent. I know dry shampoos, and I have used a lot of them, but this one tops the list. A great, great product that leaves hair touchably clean, weightless, and not powdery or heavy. No chalky residue here! (A common complaint I have with many drug store dry shampoo brands.)
Mirenesse Glossy Kiss in Perfect Kiss, $22
A chubby stick cross between lipstick or stain and a smooth and creamy tinted lip balm. It can also double as a cheeky cheek stain in a pinch! Made without parabens or drying alcohol, this has both staying power and keeps lips moisturized.
Sarahpotempa “Darby” Hair Clip, set of 2 for $9.99
This clip is the perfect clip for sectioning while curling or straightening long, often tangly hair. It lets in more hair than your average straight clip and bends easily with a simple press of your finger on the release, allowing your hair to flow easily and not get caught up and tangled.
Birchbox Breakdown: “This powerful exfoliator mimics the results of professional microdermabrasion, minus the potential for redness and sensitivity. First, papaya enzymes break down dead cells while evening out your skin tone. Next, dermatologist-approved microderm crystals fade the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, leaving skin smooth and free of imperfections. Finally, aloe vera, coconut, and vitamins B and E nourish fresh skin to keep it free of irritation.”
Jamie’s Breakdown: Makes my skin feel so, so good. Brightens, exfoliates, and cleanses. It’s a 3 in 1 product.
So, any new beauty products or trends you want to send my way? I’ll be ready for them and ready to share them with you!
