I say it’s my 2nd Birchbox, because it’s the second box that I have received from my subscription however this is technically my 3rd box as I recently built my own Birchbox in Selfridges last month (find out more here). Soo a little bit Birchbox heavy on the blog at the moment, but I’m actually really loving this subscription. I get so excited arriving home after my Birchbox has been delivered and can’t wait to start testing and swatches everything.
For December there was of course a Christmas theme, with the box being a gorgeous red and sliver. Also comes in a standing box design, which makes for a lovely pot for beauty tools afterwards. This month I received four beauty samples; Laura Mercier’s Caviar Eyeshadow Stick in Amethyst, Benefit’s Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer, Percy & reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm and dr. brandy PoreDermabrasion Mask. I also received one full sized product – Ciate London Fierce Flicks Eyeliner which I have to say I’m already loving! I actually ran out of liquid eyeliner as my box arrived so started using this straight away and I hate to say it, but I think it could be a real contender for replacing my faithful Soap & Glory Supercat Skinny Eyeliner…
Above I have swatched the Ciate eyeliner along with the Benefit Bronzer and Laura’s Mercier’s Eyeshadow stick. I had previously tried out the Hoola liquid bronzer before, so no surprises really here but the surprise came from Laura Mercier’s Eyeshadow Stick. I was shocked that a minute or two after swatching this gorgeous colour, this shadow did not budge! I’m really looking forward to trying this with a make-up after the festive season.
