Okay, so a lot of people were less than thrilled when they saw the limited edition Birchbox. I was so excited. It may be because I’m in my twenties, but I thought it offered a lot of decent products for a great price, $18. Also sometimes I need to stay in my budget and good products that only cost a few dollars are perfect for when you can’t afford the expensive stuff. I used my birchbox points and after shipping I paid a whole $3.00 for this box.
The front of the card
Besides the mascara all of the products are under $10.00
Biore – Self heating one minute masks.
I actually really like this brand. I used to always buy the deep cleaning pore strips, and they always seemed to work for me. I can’t wait to try these out. The only bummer is a 4 pack is $8, but I guess that’s a good price for a quick and easy mask. I also really like charcoal masks, so I’m curious to see if it will really deep clean.
John Frieda – Frizz Ease – Nourishing Oil Elixer
Like I’ve said in previous posts, I already have a hair oil that I like. Since this is a pretty decent size, I’m going to keep it and give it a try. If it works well, it will definitely be worth buying for $9.99.
Sally Hansen Complete SAlon Manicure in Pink A Card
Omg, I love the name of this product, but the color is a little too light for me. I’ve never tried a Sally Hansen nail product before, so this is definitely a find for me! The card says that you don’t need a base coat or a top coat and that it will last up to ten days, so it’s worth trying! And, it’s only $7.99
Rimmel London – Stay Glossy 3D in Back Row Smooch
I love this color and the shimmer. I have sensitive lips, so I hope it doesn’t dry them out. The price is reasonable at $4.99. Not really sure what a 3D effect is though — i guess it’s suppose to make them look fuller.
Nivea – A kiss of Care and Color in Sheer Caramel
I wish I would have gotten a different color in this! I can’t wait to use this (even with the nude color), so I hope that it’s really nourishing, like other Nivea products. It’s only $4.99 so if I really like it, I think I might more in different colors.
Covergirl – Bombshell Shineshadow in Ice Queen
This is such a pretty shimmer. It seems like the perfect cream to use to in the corner of your eyes to add that extra wow factor. The price is $8.99, which isn’t horrible for a eyeshadow. And with the proper primer I don’t think you’ll need more than one application. It says it’s supposed to last 12 hours on its own, but I’m not sure if I buy that claim.
Covergirl – Bombshell Volume mascara in Very Black
I prefer black mascaras. I’m excited to try this product, but it’s going to have to wait until I start wearing my contacts in the summer. Every time I try a mascara that is lengthening my glasses end up with mascara smudges on them… Anyway, there are two applicators one for volume and one for intensity, so I really think product will give and bold and rock star look for a night out. It’s $11.99 and seeing that is has two applicators I think that is a decent price.
Overall, I really liked this limited edition birchbox. It has some great drugstores finds that I normally would never buy. All the products are reasonably priced, so if you are on a budget the products within in it might be worth purchasing. Since I paid only $3 for this box, it’s definitely worth the price to me. Did any of you guys buy this box? What did you think of it?
