Hello Beauties!

I've been subscribed to Birchbox for over two years now, and I think it is a wonderful service. For a flat rate of $10 a month, Birchbox sends you 4-5 deluxe size beauty samples right to your front door. You fill out a small survey based on your personal features, and Birchbox makes sure the products they send suit you. I'm not going to lie I've had some duds, but I have found a bunch of products I love and have gone on to purchase in full size!

Here's what you can expect in a typical Birchbox

Birchbox packaging
Color Club mint green nail polish
Origins charcoal pore cleansing mask
Origins energy-boosting moisturizer
LAQA&CO. lil' lip (no color specified)
Left: natural lips Right: LAQA&CO. lil' lip
Overall- this was a pretty decent box! I also received an Oscar de la Renta fragrance sample but I forgot to photograph it (oops, sorry!) The nail polish is a pretty mint green, perfect for the spring and summer! I'm really excited to try the charcoal pore cleansing mask! I'm looking for a good mask, in fact I just ordered the Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Masque and I cannot wait to try it! As for the lip pencil, I loved the texture! It was super creamy and nicely pigmented. It's also a color I've been eyeing for a long time, but never was able to bite the bullet and purchase it because it can be intimidating. (The pictures don't do it justice, it's basically a highlighter pink similar to MACs Candy Yum Yum).

If you'd like me to review my monthly Birchbox, let me know in the comments.

Stay gorgeous,
XOXO Alyssa
