After wanting to sign up to a beauty subscription service for a while, I finally took the plunge and signed up to Birchbox at the beginning of March. What a month to sign up; not only do you get a new Benefit lipstick in the shade of your choice, but some of us lucky folk get to try the Orbe Dry Texturising Spray, too!
In this months box I also got a full sized Model Co. cream highlighting trio, Balance Me primer and a makeup remover by Marcelle.
The highlighting trio is actually really nice; I’m not a lover of highlighters since I have a lot of texture around my cheek area but these don’t emphasise anything and leave a nice subtle glow. I might have to pass on the bronze shade though…
The Benefit They’re Real Double the Lip lipstick came in Lusty Rose, a soft pink ideal for everyday wear. I’m not sure about the built in lip liner feature, though; it looks very 90’s! Blend it in and you’re good to go, however!
I’m yet to try the primer, but it claims to be good for pores and fine lines; both of which I need a little help with these days!
I’m always on the hunt for a makeup remover which won’t sting my eyes, but since this is made for eyes, I have high hopes!
Now, here’s the real treat this month, the Orbe Dry Texturising Spray. A full sized can of this retails for around £40 in the UK which is a little overpriced, if you ask me! I’ve recently chopped my hair off into a wavy bob, though so this might come in handy!
What did you get in your boxes this month? Let me know below!
