January Birchbox: Unboxed

I couldn't pick just one word to describe this year!
First Birchbox of 2016! Yay!! I seriously love getting my Birchbox every month. It's like getting a little Christmas or birthday present. But now onto the good stuff!


1. Cartier La Panthere ($76-$108) // This is perfume that's described as having notes of gardenia and musk. I'm not a fan. At all. Way too musky for me. It actually reminds me of a men's cologne. No thank you.

2. TONYMOLY Delight Tony Tint - Red ($6) // This is lightweight lip stain. I'm actually a big fan of stains because they don't budge all day. There were little chunks when I put it on and I couldn't tell if it was from the brush applicator or I had something on my lips. As for the "no budging" it didn't last all day. I had to reapply it around lunch. And it didn't wear off evenly. It's definitely not bad if you only need to wear it for a few hours! As for all day wear, I'm not sure I would buy a full size. Especially because it dries your lips out so you need chapstick on hand anyway.

3. Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eyeliner in Black ($16) // I put this stuff on and it went on super smooth. I was pretty impressed! I have an issue with eyeliners going on without much hassle. Even though it says it's smudgeproof, it definitely ran a little on the outer corner of my eyes throughout the day. Nothing I've never dealt with before (thanks to oily skin almost any eye makeup will run on me). It also lasted through a workout with very little smearing so I was impressed! I'm not sure I'd spend $16 on a full size eyeliner, but I would love to find a quality dupe!

4. Ciate London Mini Paint Pot - Mistress ($15) // Nail polish! One of my favorite things! This color is bright red, a color I can't get enough of no matter what time of year. It's a standard red, a lot like the color that was already on my toes. So far I haven't had any chips so fingers crossed it stays that way for a few days!

5. nugg Beauty De-Stress Mask ($16.50) // Target sells the sample size of this stuff and I love them! I've bought a couple other types of face masks and absolutely loved them! Even the samples you could get two masks out of which is great. As much as I love the sheet masks, I do love this stuff and would likely buy a full size one!

Overall, this was a pretty good box. Other than the perfume (seriously I couldn't wash it off quick enough), I'll definitely use the samples as well as possibly buying a couple full-sized items.
