For the longest time, I’ve managed to ignore Birchbox but since they had a promo for a free Smashbox mini matte palette, I decided to go for it! 😝

I’m liking how they send the box so early compared to ipsy. And I also appreciate how you can purchase full size products in their website so in case you end up liking your sample, you can get it shipped with your next box for free!


So let’s look at what I got in this month’s box. I chose the surprise me option vs the Select and Curated box.

Kiehl’s Daily Reviving Concentrate – I’m excited to try this but I don’t know what difference it would do to my skin. I mean, what is skin fatigue? This isn’t really anti-aging so what is it supposed to do? But whatever, because it’s Kiehl’s.

Marcelle BB Cream, Golden Glow – another product I was happy to get and excited to try!

The Beauty Crop, GRLPWR Liquid LipstickΒ – I received Imma Bawse which is a bold deep red. Unfortunately, this color is something I do not wear. The application is very nice though; dries fast and quite transfer proof. They have it in two other colors – one looks like peach and the other is more mauve. If this goes on sale, I will get it!

Number 4 Smoothing Balm – this is to help folks tame frizzy hair in a snap. I don’t really do stuff to my hair so…

Amika Nourishing Mask – Another hair product πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ. So this is the one you use in the shower for deep conditioning while the one on top is for on the go smoothing.

Smashbox Photo Matte Eyes – as I mentioned earlier, I received this as a free gift for signing up. I love that it’s an all matte neutral palette and packaged small to travel with!

What did you guys get in your box?
