This month is Birchbox's first birthday and to celebrate, they filled their boxes with some of their favorite products.
My favorite product in this month's box is definitely the Harvey Prince Eau Flirt Fragrance. And no, it's not just because of the super cute packaging. It has a base of lavender and pumpkin along with freesia, jasmine, nutmeg, cinnamon, and amber. It's a very odd combination of notes, but somehow it works.
Another one of my favorites is the Incoco Nail Polish Applique in Adventurous. Mine are a sparkly turquoise color, but they also have pink, red, and leopard. If you aren't familiar with strips like these, you basically just put them on your nail like a sticker and file off the excess. I haven't tried them yet, but if they're anything like the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips, I'm sure I'll love them!
I also got a sample of the Blinc Mascara, a tube of the Jouer Lip Enhancer, a lash card, and a friendship bracelet.
The lash card is supposed to prevent mascara from getting onto your eyelids, but to me, it just seems like it would waste time and get in the way.
I've received samples of the Blinc Mascara before, but have never tried it. Remember how I'm afraid of using eyelash curlers? Well I'm also afraid of this mascara because it's supposed to form "tubes" around your lashes. Then when you want to take it off, the tubes are supposed to slide right off of your lashes. I just picture my lashes coming off in the tubes, so I'm staying away!
The friendship bracelet is a cute idea, but I don't see it lasting that long because it's not the best quality.
So far, I'm really liking the Jouer Lip Enhancer. It's not sticky and really moisturizes my lips. The smell isn't so great when you first put it on, but that goes away shortly after you apply it.
What did you get in your Birchbox this month?
