I have mix feelings about my box. It’s actually a great box, but I’m not super excited to get it. Probably because I am just so overloaded with stuff.
Cargo Swimmable Shadow Stick: I love shadow sticks because of the ease of application. More often than not, in the mornings I don’t have time to do a full eyeshadow look, so being able to qucikly and easily swipe some color is ideal. This is a gorgeous deep bronze color that I’ve already fallen in love with. However, I noticed after I applied it for the swatch, it sets very quickly so any smudging needs to be done immediately!
FOREO Night Cleanser: Birchbox says this cleanser turns from a gel to a milky cleanser which sounds just like the NUDE skincare I’ve been testing. I like that formulation so eager to see how this one works. Plus I have a Foreo, so I can actually test it the way it was meant to be used.
IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer: I chose this as my sample pick for 2 reasons: 1) I am still searching for a great primer and 2) I love product that leave my skin with a little glow as it makes me look healthier. After reading reviews, I’m concerned it will will leave my skin greasy or much too shimmery, but it’s worth checking out.
PARLOR by Jeff Chastain Detangling Leave-In Conditioner: I actually haven’t tried anything from Parlor yet, but after seeing all the positive reviews, I’m excited to finally try something! Plus, I use detangling sprays every time I wash my hair (either Beauty Protector or It’s a 10), so it;s nice to have a small one for travel.
Oribe Cote d’Azur Fragrance: I have a lot of perfume and I’m pretty picky, so I don’t love getting perfumes in my Birchbox. But I know the Oribe hair products smell great, and this is supposed to smell like them so I’m curious to see how it smells.
Have you tried any of these products? If so, what are your thoughts on it?
