birchbox october 2013 review and first impressions

Birchbox finally finally arived , took a wile this time but its here and looks pretty good :). So what’s there? First we have laura mercier foundation primer radiance I just tried it out a bit and when first opened the tube I was like damn that’s to dark as it has little tone to it but when tried it on my hand it tottaly blended in and you couldn’t even tell anything is there same it absorbed very quickly so am well exited actualy trying it under make up as still no find for good primer . This one full price is 28 pounds . But as u dnt need lots of it to cover whole face . Next is dr. Brandt microdermabrasion skin exfoliant and honestly this is the item I’m most exited about from this box as to deal with my dry face u ment massage it in and wash it off like 2 times a wEek. And once again it smells citrussy seems like all the expensive things are like lemon themed lol. And this one full size is 67 pounds wich is a bit much but no harm trying so who knows . It is a bit like a scrub thing too just hope it doesn’t burn my skin. Next. Kms california curl up wave foam mousse. Well this is totaly out of my alley. Lol I’m a paranoid straight hair girl no curls for me but it has realy nice fruity smell and quite thick texture to it so might be nice I will hav look out for 1 for straight hair. Full price 15 pound. Next the balm cosmetics stainiac lip and cheek tint. Once again I’m fooled by the color that shows when its in the bottle. As it looks pure deep red like yeah look at that red but no its like light pink color. When u put on. In my eyes its like why put it on if u can’t even see specialy on my red face lol. Quite tick texture . But not for me. Full price 10 pound. Next a bit dissapointment as this was in the previous birchbox its dr lipp nipple balm for lips. Basickly u can use it for everything and it works really nice but even this tiny tiny pot goes for ever so might be good investment . Full 11.50 . Next a lifestyle extra. Ultradex. Full size from 5.49. Basicky its for ur teeth to help keep the inbetween bits cleen etc . Never actualy tried these things so they bit funky looking as stick with more traditional things lol but do want try them despite the freaky look lol. And last but not least beauty extra. Egyptian magic. Full price 29 pounds. Its a multi purpuse cream. As u take tiny bit rub it in ur hands till it turns into oil and ur good to wipe it on anywhere u want. I decided take all 3 mini packs with me for when go scotland next week . Giving me more space in bag . :). As have birchbox for wile now and I think its lots lots lots better than glossy box as feel like I get more for the same money etc and the products seem more use to me .

glossybox is here ! october 2013

So the glossy box finaly here in a really wet box as the poor post man had walk trough the rain to get to my door . But let’s see what’s there . First we have mememe cherubs blush cheek and lip tint . In bottle it looks like a red color but when aplied it is very very pink I do like the tints and like the ones how do u call nt lipsticks but the lip stains cos they stay on so so much better and feels lots softer on my lips and they dnt make the lips as dry ether as lipsticks. Despite me nt liking the pink tone as I always try cover all my pink tones on my face nt put them on I do like this product plus the price is pretty cheep too 5.50 for the 12 ml bottle and feels like this could last long time . Ok next is a perfume sample. And honestly I seen advert for these so many times and I love the add never got chance to actualy sniff it . Its katy perrys killer queen perfume and oh my god it smells like heaven its quite heavy sweet perfume . Just way I like it . And price I think is pretty good too its 29.50 for 50ml. Next is mono illuminating primer. I’m still kind trying find a primer that I like and that doesn’t feel heavy on my face because I never cover my whole face say with foundation and it just feels well heavy on so I’m kind looking forward to trying this I tried tiny bit on my hand it felt bit oily at start but it obsorbed super quickly . It has spf 15 too so always good thing specialy for sensetive skin like mine. It is a bit on high end of students price range in 24.95 for 50 ml . But u know if it works well then y not. Next. Premae. Multi vit smoothie serum. Never actualy seen one like this as u ment put it on before u put on a moisturising cream to like prep ur skin for it . Plus u can mix it with ur foundation and make it like a natural bb cream . Lol its like magic in one bottle plus it smells so so lemony I love this u need just tiny bit to cover all ur face . Well good . And it comes for 22.50 for 50 ml. And last is vita liberta latte illuminating skin finish. There is 3 pascks of this only thing is that its bronzer wich is kind nt the right path way for a ghost like face look lol. So I prob not gona be using them my self . Over all nt bad box quite good cream selection so some new things to try 🙂
