BIRCHBOX $10/MONTH
Love the colorful box this month!

Davine’s SU hair and body wash. The bottle says it’s a good wash to use for sensitive skin. I LOVED the last Davine’s  shampoo and conditioner sample that birchbox sent, but the shampoo is regularly $26 for a normal size bottle. I could never justify spending that much. I own the Davine’s leave in conditioner spray, it’s really nice.

Benefit Gimme Brow. It’s a tinted brow volumizing gel. I didn’t notice volume, but does work as a gel. Mine is marked with a 3, which I assume is the color for dark brown,  though it doesn’t deposit heavy color.
– Coola spf 30 sunscreen. I’m a fan of getting sunscreen samples. It’s a practical product that will get used up. This sample will probably last one day hiking or a day trip to the beach,  perfect size to toss into a travel bag.
Oribe dry texturizing spray. I saw a birchbox tutorial using this, I’m looking forward to trying it out.
Ardency Inn modster black eyeliner. I’ve received a different eyeliner that I wasn’t  a fan of from Glossybox. It had a brush applicator, so you would be painting your eyelid black. Yeah, I never used it. I’m more willing to try this pencil style, though.

I noticed that there is a padding layer at the bottom of the box now,  that is a great idea. That will protect the products more than shipping in a piece of tissue paper. The winners this month for sure are the Benefit brow gel and the Davine’s body wash. Those will definitely be used up asap!

All the mascara

2 Sep

These are all the mascaras I had in my makeup collection.

My favorites: Revlon bold lacquer by grow luscious (I have another new one in the package, I got them in boxycharm and beauty box 5 subscription boxes), and Tarina Tarantino fleur de lash in the super glam packaging.

Wet n Wild mega length mascara is great in a pinch. I bought it one day on break at work – I forgot to put on mascara that day and my eyes looked so sleepy. I think it’s only $3!

I’ve been rotating daily between these 5: Revlon, be a bombshell, they’re real by benefit, urban decay perversion, cover girl professional, and urban decay. They’re all open, so I feel like I have to use them all before they go bad! I should toss out some of these, though, I keep getting more in subscription boxes!
