An anticipated special delivery made its way to my mailbox this past weekend, and many have probably reached the conclusion that it was my October 2014 BirchBox, and as usual I am eager to see all the fun and pretty useful beauty products, that has made their way into my box. For those who are not familiar with the company BirchBox, or their subscription service, BirchBox, is a beauty sample subscription service, that costs $10.00 a month or $110.00 for an annual subscription. Every month as long as you are subscribed you will receive four to five beauty and sometimes lifestyle samples. I love the company BirchBox, because I feel in my opinion that they continually strive to introduce their subscribers to brands they already know, brands that one might not have heard of, or brands one has heard of, but never tried. The company BirchBox, takes their subscribers on an adventure every month introducing, and helping their subscribers become fans of things and products they never thought they would. So let’s get moving, and see what I received in my BirchBox for my BirchBox October 2014 Box Reveal.
The theme for October is Obsessed, Addicted, Can’t Get Enough, Hold My Calls. The theme is about what are you a fan of , what gets you excited and rallying other fans.
Full- Size $20.00
The Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick, was one of the products that I was most interested in trying. First, I want to say that this liquid lipstick smells amazing, however does not have a flavor. This liquid lipstick goes on smooth, and is not sticky at all, which is always a plus. Mally High Shine Liquid Lipstick, has a built-in primer, lipstick, and lip liner all built into one. So this liquid lipstick means business, by combining all these lip products into one tube helps makes a girl’s life a bit easier beauty wise. And it was an added bonus that this was a full-size product.
The Lord and Berry Paillettes Glitter Eye Pencil in Black was one of my of my favorite samples that I received in my October BirchBox, and it was well suited for the month of October, because the color is black, but at the same time has silver glitter flecks blended in making it enchanting, glamorous yet a little mischievous. This eye pencil goes on smooth without tugging. The consistency is smooth and is highly pigmented. I love that the Lord and Berry Eye Pencil evenly distributes the right amount of glitter when it’s applied. One does not get glitter overload when using this eye pencil, just the right amount where you look fantastic and not comical. The Lord and Berry Paillettes Glitter Eye Pencil has become a new beauty favorite and definitely on my shopping list.
Sample 3 Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner*
Full- size $45.00
Dr. Brandt Pores No more Vacuum Cleaner, is a gel mask that promises to help in clearing the skin of blackheads, and also helps in revealing clearer skin as well as smoother skin. I have used Dr. Brandt’s products before, and they have given great results so I am interested in trying the Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner, to see how well this product delivers results, which I am sure will be phenomenal because of the name behind it.
Sample 4 Skin and Co Sicilian Light Serum*
Skin and Co Sicilian Light Serum, is a new product discovery for me. This serum is a vitamin C serum that promises to help boosts collagen, diminishes wrinkles, and helps to even skin tone. The scent of this serum is absolutely beautiful. The scent is floral, a slight hint of citrus, and very fresh.
Sample 5 Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo*
I have tried amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo, before and I must say that this was a much delighted extra sample to have around especially for travel. I love this dry shampoo it smells amazing, and I like that the product does not leave any residue behind that makes hair unmanageable. Some dry shampoo’s leave behind residue and leaves hair feeling a bit sticky and weighed down not Amika’s Perk Up Dry Shampoo.
And, that was my BirchBox October 2014 Box Reveal. I am definitely now a fan of the Lord and Berry Paillette Glitter Pencil, and I have made a few new product discoveries that I am loving in this months box.
