Birchbox April 2014

Hi all,

I received my April birchbox a couple days ago and am happy to report my reviews on the product!

One of the cute little 52 Bright ideas for a rainy day… Birchbox knows me so well, since I already do this!

The insides of the box

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eye Pencil – Silver.  Full Size – 0.04 oz, $16.00. Deluxe Sample Size – 0.03 oz, $12.00.

At first I was kind of like “meh” to this product, but it grew on me after I swatched it a couple times.  It goes on so smooth and the color stays pretty well.  I don’t really wear any color of eyeliner besides black, so this will be a nice piece to add to my collection.  I’ll post a swatch of it below. 

The Balm, How ‘Bout Them Apples in Pie.  Full size, $32.  Deluxe sample size 20g and I’m not exactly sure of the value.

This is the cutest sample ever.  Although it is super tiny, it feels like it will last me a while.  I think I like it more for my lips then my cheeks, but I’ll have to do some experimenting.  I absolutely love the color!

And here is a swatch of the two

Fekkai – Technician Color Care Shampoo.  Full Size – 8 oz, $20.00. Deluxe Sample Size – 2 oz, $5.00.

This shampoo smells really nice.  I do have colored hair so this is nice to have lying around for when I run out of the shampoo that I normally use.  I’m currently into more natural shampoos (this has sulfates and parabens), so this wasn’t my favorite item from birchbox, but I will still use it.

Color Club – Heirloom Pearls.  Full Size – 4 bottles, $13.00.  Sample Size, 1 bottle $3.25.

I like the color of this nail polish, but I already have a lot of similar colors.  I have more samples from this brand and it seems to be a pretty good polish. 

Kind Bar – Maple Pumpkin Seeds.  Lifestyle Extra. 

I’m kind of indifferent to kind bars.  I think they are okay.  This flavor smells really good so I am excited to give it a try!

Okay… so I also added this to my box for an extra $24.00… AND I LOVE IT.. Got it in the color Bambi.. I love water bottles..
