An Awesome Birchbox Review

I didn’t get a chance to review my December Birchbox in December because things got too crazy but it was a great box with some products I fell in love with so I definitely wanted to share even if it is a little late! Here’s the products that are MUST BUY’s:  Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner – $16 I’m obsessed with this eyeliner. First of all, the sample was the full size product which was a huge win! I normally am not coordinated enough for liquid eyeliner but the marker-like tip on this one makes it so much easier. My favorite part about this eyeliner is that it stays on without wearing off or smudging all day but then comes of so easy with makeup wipes. […]

November Birchbox Review

The November Birchbox was a Guest Editor box from Youtube beauty star Tati Westbrook. I was excited to try it because I’ve seen her on YouTube and she’s gorgeous. Here’s what I thought of the GlamLifeGuru box. Avene Hydrance Optimale Hydrating Serum – $36 Pros: Non-greasy, dries very quickly, super lightweight. Cons: Has a slightly sticky texture and did not feel super hydrating on my skin. Verdict: I would not buy. I’ve determined that I much prefer a gel or cream moisturizer for my face. Jouer Lip Enhancer – $16 Pros: Super-moisturizing. Makes lips soft and fuller. Cons: I wish I had more of it! Verdict: Will be purchasing! I absolutely loved this product, I have super dry lips (especially in the morning), I put this […]

October Birchbox Review

I technically got two Birchboxes in October since I subscribed in late September and my September box didn’t come until the first week of October. My first box was pretty good but this one definitely topped it! Here are the products I got in my October Birchbox: Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Multi-Corrective Divine Cream – Dry Skin  -$295 Verdict: Will Not Buy This was a thick and creamy moisturizer that went on my skin like butter. It was a decent sample size and I’m happy that I got to try it. It made my skin feel hydrated and soft but there was nothing “divine” or magical about that would make me consider paying that price. It also has a sort of chemical-like smell that I didn’t like. Smashbox […]

My First Birchbox Review

I finally decided to jump on the subscription box train and order my first Birchbox. I have been getting more and more into makeup and skincare in the last year or so but I still rarely branch out of my comfort zone. So, I love the idea of getting to test out a bunch of new products for only $10 a month. I ordered my first box in mid-September but I didn’t get it until October 3rd. I guess it takes them a while to process and ship your first box but usually they come at the beginning of the month because I got my October Birchbox around the 10th. I basically got two in the same week which was fun, I like the fact […]

A Well Balanced Weekend

Sometimes you just need one of those weekends that are the perfect balance of relaxation and productivity. If you’re like me, and most people I know, you get in the habit of cramming so many plans into the weekend that you’re exhausted come Monday morning, sitting at your desk on your third cup of coffee, wishing you took a little more me time on your “days off”. After our busy weekend last week at the Epcot Food & Wine Festival, I really needed to catch up on errands and house work and give myself a little break. Friday Night, I caught up on Fall TV. As soon as I got home from work it was sweatpants, bed and DVR time. Let me just say, I […]
