Birchbox: February 2012



Hey dolls! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying this lovely Friday. I just got in a little while ago and I was so happy to see that a lovely pink box was waiting for me at home. Today, I am going to share with you all what was included in my February 2012 Birchbox. And let me just say, that I was REALLY happy to see what was included in this month's box.




Eye Rock Designer Liner- I love eyeliner. I think eyeliner really adds a special pizzazz to a look. I mostly stick with cream, gel, and pencil eyeliners. I just can't seem to get along with liquid eyeliners. Although I love the shiny, and deep color they give off, I find them to be a bit messy to use, and unfortunately, I have not mastered that perfect liquid eyeliner application. In comes Eye Rock. Eye Rock consists of four pairs of adhesive eyeliner design strips, that promise to help us easily achieve that perfect cat eye, that we all long for. This pack consists of four eyeliner styles from the more subtle, to the more dramatic eyeliner. I can't wait to play around with these. I will definitely report back and do a review on these soon. Stay tuned!



Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant- I have never tried any skincare products from dermalogica, but I know that many swear by their products. To use this exfoliator, all you have to do is shake out a bit of the powder onto the palm of your hand, add a bit of water, mix with your finger, and a paste will be created. This rich paste sets out to not only help buff away the dead skin cells but, to also soften and brighten the skin as well. This product came just at the right time because, my skin has been really sallow and dull-looking lately so, I hope this exfoliator will help liven up my skin a bit.


Beautyblender Sponge- When I saw this famous pink sponge in the box, I became ecstatic! I have been longing for a beautyblender sponge for quite some time, and to see it included in this month's birchbox was just a beautiful surprise. I can't tell you how many raves I have seen on the beautyblender. I am so happy that I can finally try it out for myself. I love the shape of the sponge because it makes applying foundation to certain areas much easier. You can cover a bigger area with the bigger, rounder part. And, you can also reach those smaller areas like the crevices of the nose or under the eyes with the smaller, pointy tip. Besides for foundation, I have seen others use the beautyblender to apply cream blushes as well. Such a functional product. I have a feeling I am going to love this one.


Swatch

Blended into the skin-see all those sparkles?

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in the shade, Pearl- This tinted moisturizer works to give the skin a glowing, dewy look. Also, this tinted moisturizer is oil free, and contains an SPF of 20. I swatched a bit of this tinted moisturizer on the back of my hand and I liked how easily it blended right into my skin. Not only that but, my hand did have a dewy glow to it. The shade match with my skin tone looked to be pretty good as well. I did notice that there is a huge shimmer overload in this product so, I guess we shall see how this looks like on my face. But I have a feeling that the shimmers will be too apparent for daytime. If such is the case, not all is lost. I could probably use this product just on those certain areas on my face where I want a bit of shimmer/highlight. Such as, the bridge of my nose, and the top of my cheekbones. That's the beauty of makeup. If something doesn't work out for a certain purpose, get creative and try to make it work for something else.

Included as an extra in this month's Birchbox was a neon pink, heart-shaped nail file. How cute is this? I am such a sucker for products that have a cuteness factor to them. So fun!

*Another extra included in this month's Birchbox is a free six song, digital download by indie rock band, Green River Ordinance.


What do you all think about this month's birchbox contents?

  9. Ahh, jealous about the beauty blender! The tinted moisturizer actually looks really good, I might have to try that out soon. I got the WEI buffing beads instead of the Dermalogica sample and I love them!
