February Birchbox: Unboxed

Woohoo!! My favorite time of month! Let's just jump right in to what I thought about it:

1. L'Artisan Parfumeur Mure et Musc Eau de Toilette ($100) // Part of my wants to stop requesting perfume because I feel like lately it's been more of a miss than a hit. This perfume has notes of blackberry and rich musk and wood. Personally I can't smell the blackberry - all I smell is musk and wood. I wasn't a fan.

2. amika Bombshell Blowout Spray ($24) // One of my favorite hair styling brands! I used this last night before I went to bed and I definitely think it gave my hair extra volume. I'm too lazy to wash my hair in the morning, but hopefully soon I'll get the chance to try it out when I straighten my hair. As for the price, considering I love this brand so much I would totally buy a full size bottle.

3. Hey Honey Take it Off! Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask ($29) // This mask is supposed to brighten and clear your skin as well as reduce wrinkles. Unfortunately I can't comment on that after one use. It definitely made my skin feel soft, but I think I would need to use it multiple times before I decide if I would want a full size.

4. ARROW REVIVE Cooling Cheek Tint - Pink Punch ($18) // This is a Birchbox exclusive brand. It's like a liquid blush but what I was so impressed with was that it was actually cooling! This stuff would be great to put on after a workout. My skin gets super red when I workout, but then goes super white once I cool off. This stuff I could throw in my gym bag and put it on before meeting up with friends after. I would totally buy a full size bottle of this!

5. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar - Strumpet ($15) // This is a cruelty-free matte lipstick. They aren't kidding when they say a little goes a long way! I was hoping that because it's more of a stain it would last longer, but by the time I had eaten dinner, it was gone. I think I'll stick to my other tried and true lip stains.

Overall, it was still a great box! I love the exposure to brands I would probably never spend the money on or brands that I would probably never hear about. 

Here's the Lip Tar (before dinner). The color is great, the lasting effect, not so much.

This is the cheek tint. It's super subtle, but totally buildable if you want more color!
