Unboxing: Birchbox vs Ipsy

Birchbox March 2017

Clarins – Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream

Give super thirsty skin the nourishment it needs with this formula, complete with an organic succulent extract that improves the skin’s ability to retain precious moisture. This moisturizer has a pretty strong fragrance but it fades after a few minutes. and leaves the skin feeling silky smooth. It has a very lightweight consistency which provides a great base for makeup application.

Coastal Scents – Revealed Smoky Eye Shadow Quad

You can go as smoky or as subtle as you like with these bendable hues that work with every skin tone and eye color. The lighter shade is a beautiful pink champagne when applied and has a stunning pearlescent shimmer finish. The darker shade, on the other hand, is much more glittery but is the perfect outer corner accent color for the perfect smoky eye.

Davines – Ol All in One Milk

This is a nourishing all-in-one leave in hair treatment. It is a multi benefit spray that detangles while adding volume, shine, and provides heat protection. Not to mention it smells amazing! It has the salon smell that until now seemed unachievable even when you bought all of the products your hair stylist used.

W3LL People – Bio Brightener

Add a flattering shimmer while nourishing skin with this high-performance all natural formula. Using fingertips or a brush. blend the product onto the areas of the face you’d like to highlight. If you prefer a subtle glow from within type of highlight then this is for you.

Real Chemistry – Fresh-Start Foaming Cleanser 

It gently removes impurities, makeup, and excess oil with a luxurious foamy lather, and a fresh grape fruit scent. Real Chemistry’s foaming cleanser leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean. I really like receiving Real Chemistry samples because it is hard to commit to a new skin care product without trying it out first.

Davines – Ol Shampoo and Conditioner *bonus item*

You’ll love this ultra hydrating, paraben- and sulphate free cleanser for all hair types. It creates a shine as it boosts volume, improves texture, and protects hair from UV Rays. This conditioner is packed with natural active ingredients like roucou oil, which protects hair from UV rays and heat damage, plus apricot butter, which adds softness to each strand.

Ipsy March 2017

Air Repair – Complexion Boosting Moisturizer

I actually first received a sample of this moisturizer in my Birchbox about a year ago, and I love it! I completely forgot about it, and I am so glad I got another sample of it this month. I think I might purchase the full size. No matter your skin type, this hydrates and revitalizes even the driest and dullest of complexions. A combo of antioxidants (like cloudberry seed oil and green tea) rejuvenate stressed out skin.

ModleCo – Eye Define Retractable Crayon Liner

This eyeliner has a very creamy formula, there is not tugging at the eyelid to get the perfect line. The color is very buildable and can be worn for both a subtle or dramatic look. This long-wearing, water-resistant formula won’t smudge, budge, or transfer.

Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics – Blush in Kitty Pink

This dusty peach shade is absolutely beautiful and wow it is pigmented. You definitely have to use a light hand  when applying this blush but when you use the right amount it creates a lovely romantic look. It is one of my new favorite blush shades. This formula is long wearing and will keep you looking rosy all day.

Tarte Cosmetics – Matte Lip Paint in Rosé

I’m officially obsessed. Like most makeup lovers I have quite a few nude lip shades but this one has got to be one of the most flattering on my fair skin. It is very hard to find a nude lip color that does not just blend in with my skin. If you have very fair to light skin I highly recommend this shade.

Beau Gâchis – Tapered Blending Brush

I LOVE GETTING BRUSHES IN SUBSCRIPTION BOXES! This quality all natural tapered blending brush is perfect for blending in shadows into the crease, creating that perfect smokey eye, or even adding highlight to your cheekbones. This versatile brush is simply a must have for your beauty collection.

Wow, this was a tough call this month! I think i’m going to have to call it a TIE! Well done Birchbox and Ipsy well done!
