A lot of people are saying this month is the best Birchbox ever...they received the Teen Vogue box too but their contents are a little different than mine. Some people got a full size Tarte LipSurgence and I am soooo jealous! If I got that I would've been extremely happy with this box. But I did get a beautyblender when a lot of other people didn't, so I'll stop complaining now...
Kerastase Elixir Ultime:
This hair oil contains a unique combo of four essential oils (camellia, argan, maize and pracaxi oils) to leave strands super shiny and manageable. This can be used as a pre-shampoo treatment, leave-in conditioner and heat protectant before blow drying. I didn't notice much of a difference pre-shampooing but I really liked it as a leave in treatment. My felt softer and smoother after applying. Full size retails for $54.
Annick Goutal Petite Cherie:
IF I RECEIVE ONE MORE FREAKING PERFUME SAMPLE!!! ...Okay I still like Birchbox but I am really over the perfume samples, and this isn't the first time I've said it...probably the 5th haha. Anyways, this smells TERRIBLE. All I smell is rubbing alcohol and something else, I don't know what but I don't like it. Moving on...
Essie A Cut Above:
Full size Essie polish, yay! I was going to buy this color when I bought two others from the Luxeffects collection, As Gold As It Gets and Pure Pearlfection. But I'm glad I decided not to buy it! This polish looks to be a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Some Enchanted Evening as well. I'm wearing Zoya Marley above...I don't really like this combination but that's what I had on my nails and did a quick glitter gradient. I love pink and I love glitter!
FRESH Sugar Rose Lip Treatment:
Twistband Hair Tie:
Alright I'm kind of pissed I got this because I already got one in my August Birchbox and I think it looks stupid. Why is there a knot?! Yes it holds my hair nice and tight without pull my hair or leaving a dent. But that stupid knot sticks out and looks funny.
As you can tell this was a love/hate Birchbox...I loved the Essie polish and Fresh Sugar but I hated the perfume sample and hair tie. Were you lucky enough to get a Tarte LipSurgence? Let me know what you think!
