This month’s Birchbox was a good one. I received a full sized item, hooray! Let me know what you got in your Birchbox in the comments, but now onto the reviews!
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Purple– This product alone retails for $15, and essentially pays for the box! I found this liquid eyeliner with a felt tip pretty easy to use, even though I’m not an eyeliner connoisseur. The dark purple shade isn’t too bright but is a nice pop of color. It doesn’t fade or flake all day!
Juice Beauty CC Cream– I was really excited to test this product out since CC creams are basically the new BB creams, but I was disappointing in it. It hardly has any pigmentation to it and is essentially a primer or moisturizer. It does smell really good, however, but not quite worth the “color correcting” title (what CC stands for) and the $39 price tag.
Nick Chavez Advanced Volume Shampoo– I don’t typically care for shampoos or conditioners in my boxes, but I was excited for this one because it was a great sized sample. I liked the texture and smell, but I found that it wasn’t great for my oily hair! It’s hard for me to find shampoos anyways…
Juicy Couture “Juicy Couture” Perfume– I like fragrance samples, so I was excited to see this one because I haven’t tried it before. Their “Couture Couture” scent was my signature scent for a few years, and I loved it. This scent is a lot more mature and floral than that one, and I also got a little bit of a spicy hint from it, likely due to patchouli.
I also received a fortune cookie that was completely shattered and pointless, so I didn’t photograph it. I posted a sarcastic tweet about it on Twitter and their operations team got back to me quickly and gave me 100 points for the damaged sample…awesome! One reason I love Birchbox is that they are great about making their errors better with replacements if possible, or points for their store (which I’m racking up!).
