Birchbox – September

on September 26, 2013

Birchbox is celebrating their 3rd anniversary this month
and the box they put together is a great way to celebrate fall.

September’s Theme:  Heritage

Hair, nails, mascara and lips – I’m soooo excited!

What this month is all about.

Eyeco Black Magic Mascara
Retail $24 for 8 ml – Sample Value $12 for 4 ml

This is kind of odd mascara for me.  It didn’t look very nice on my upper lashes.
However, it REALLY lengthened my lower lashes!
I have been using the It’s So Big mascara from Ipsy on the upper and this on the lower.
Love the final look!

Amika Blow Up Spray
Retail $24 for 8 fl oz. – Sample Value $6 for 2 fl oz.

I love Amika products.  However, volume is the opposite of my needs.
Trying to tamp my mane down is my concern.  But I tried it anyway
and it really does add volume.  Hubby got a giggle from my “large hair.”
My girlfriend with super fine hair will love this!

Dr. Jart+ Premium BB Cream
Retail $39 for 40 ml – Sample Value $4.88 for 5 ml

I didn’t care for this.  The formula is rather heavy.  Plus, it seems to only come
in one color – and that color made my skin look ashy.  Because it is so heavy I
would not be able to put my foundation on top of this without looking overdone.

I will see if one of my friends would like to try it.

Ruffian Nail Lacquer in ‘Hedge Fund’
Retail $10 for 5 ml – Full Sized Sample

At first I was not thrilled to see green – the last nail color BB sent me was green.
Then I put it on and I loved it!  It’s khaki with gold fleck – perfect for fall!

What I didn’t love is how toxic smelling this is!  Yipes!  I will be painting
my nails outside with this.  Haven’t they figured out how to go 3 free??? :-/

Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips
Retail $14.50 for 15 ml – Sample Value $2.90 for 3 ml

This is very similar to Bag Balm – but more expensive and in a better package.
It’s moisturizing and very thick – which is great for protecting your lips from
wind and cold during harsh winter weather.  Just keep in mind you will
be balming your significant other’s lips when you kiss 😉

Total Value for my September Birchbox – $35.78

All-in-all this was a pretty great box!  I just wish Birchbox would send
nail polish that isn’t so harmful – like Zoya, butter LONDON or Sation.
I am looking forward to seeing what they have in store for next month!
Halloween would be a great way for them to let their freak flags fly :-}
