Day #70.2: September Birchbox

1. Birchbox Fall Look-book
The booklet is a little introduction into the fall make-up, hair and clothes styles for season. A brief summary: wear you hair down, wear make-up that makes your face look natural and fresh, and incorporate vibrant colors into your wardrobe.

2. Make-Up brush guards. 3 plastic protectors to place over your make-up brushes, either for cleaning or to protect while traveling. If I ever have money to travel, these will definitely come in handy!

3. Fekkai Essential Shea Shampoo and Conditioner
I used these samples today. I can't lie, the thing I look for most in shampoo and conditioner is the smell. I love to have my hair smell like I just came from the salon. It's a little kooky, but that's me. The samples definitely left my hair smelling good. It was easy to brush through afterwards and it turned out soft and shiny. I only wish the samples were bigger...I have thick hair and didn't feel like I got good coverage.

4. "Put a Pin in it" nail polish
I can't lie, I love this nail polish! It's girly, pink and shiny. I was eyeing it up on the website so I am pretty excited to have it. It painted on smooth and dried fast. I am loving it.

5. Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir perfume sample
I love, love, love this perfume! I want to buy it! It's $47 or $81 depending on how big of a bottle you purchase. I love the smell, almost fruity mixed with jasmine. Definitely on my wish list.

6. Twistband
Blue lace twistband...love! Leaves no crimps in your hair. Kind of expensive on the website, but worth it. You can also find them cheaper on Etsy and Store Envy. Not sure of the quality at this time point though.

7. Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm SPF 25+
Moisturizing foundation. Verdict is still out...I don't think it was the right color for my skin.

8. $25 gift card for a purchase of $75 or more for Madewell. I haven't shopped there before but maybe it's time to try it out? It's only good until September 30 though. Boo.

So, there you have it. My first Birchbox. I don't have anything to compare it to but so far, I am happy with it! I also received an invitation to start receiving Glambags. For more information on Birchbox click here. For more information on Glambags click here.

Until tomorrow,

Big, beautiful & broke... Chelsea
