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!).
