Yes, I know I’m a little late to the game this month. You know since it’s December, sorry! But I’ve just been so busy. This month is also my first month of subscribing to Ipsy. But let’s get to the reviews! Birchbox is a beauty subscription box for $10/month. If you’d like to sign up please CLICK HERE to use my referral code and get signed up! The Birchbox theme this month was More Good. Here’s the card that came with it.
This is what my box looked like this month.
And of course there is the content card with prices.
I was really happy with this month’s box. Birchbox really stepped it up! Although I am sick of getting face scrubs! Hopefully their boxes will continue to be this good. Notice there are NO tiny samples or foil packet!? Finally!
Color Club Cocktail Hour Collection in Top Shelf. Mini sized, but still plenty. I nice copper color. Perfect for the holidays.
Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. Honestly, I haven’t used this yet. I get too many face scrubs in these boxes!
Chella Highlighter Pencil in Ivory Lace. This is a nice sized sample. It’s a really nice color and texture for highlighting. I read that you can use it on your waterline to make your eyes pop as well.
Chuao Chocolatier Chocolate Bar in Honeycomb. OK, you guys know how I hate receiving stuff like this is a beauty box. But this was so good, really!
Tocca Crema da Mano Luxe in Cleopatra. Smells like grapefruit and cucumber. Sounds like a strange combo but it actually smells pretty good.
Now onto Ipsy. I had been really disapointed with my Birchbox’s and jealous of peoples Ipsy bags so I decided to subscribe to Ipsy as well. It’s the same concept at Birchbox except the beauty items come in a makeup bag each month. Ipsy seems to be geared more towards makeup whereas Birchbox includes all areas of beauty. If you’d like to subscribe to Ipsy, I’d appreciate you using my referral link. It arrives each month in a pink bubble mailer! This month’s theme is Glam It Up.
Here are the content cards, on the back includes the monthly discounts to the products in the bag.
So here’s what I got in my Ipsy bag this month.
The bag is a shimmery gold snakeskin with pink trim. Basically ALL full-size, how awesome!
Now for the product reviews…
em michelle phan lash gallery mascara in brown. Looks like a nice product, the brush looks nice. I haven’t used this because I plan to give it away since I don’t use brown mascara.
Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn. So many red lip colors… But this seems to be a nice red color, not a which corner are you working red. Nice texture also.
Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Caviar Cocktail. Really pretty silver color. And I’m really glad I got this because the other option was a copper color and I received a copper polish in my Birchbox (see above).
Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched. Nice bronzer and a nice color. Gives you a nice glow without being to shimmery.
Starlooks Gem Eyeliner Pencil in Amethyst. Haven’t used because I’m afraid of (makeup) change. It is a really pretty shimmery color.
HSI Professional Argan Oil. Haven’t used since I have several other bottles. I still don’t know how I really feel about argan oil in general.
That’s right folks SIX products! And most are full-size and if they aren’t there is still plenty to use!
