How crazy is it that it’s already December? Can someone please tell me where 2015 has gone?! I’m at a total loss.
This week has been absolutely insane with finals, work, and excessively babysitting as usual, but nothing has stopped me from waiting eagerly for my Birchbox to arrive. This will be my first post since September on my Birchbox because I’ve just been insanely swamped, so I’m really excited to share what I got with you! Let’s just dive right in.
I was able to give this product a test before I posted about it since it’s just a simple moisturizer, but honestly it’s a simple moisturizer that does so much more than just moisturize. You can use this on all parts of your body from the balls of your feet to your lips and it delivers some serious hydration repair. My only complaint would be the weird orangey scent, but other than that, I think this product will be a go-to for me this winter. (Assuming it ever gets colder than 45… GLOBAL WARMING)
I’m a huge fan of the scents that Birchbox sends my way; they always pick the most beautiful, musky yet feminine scents that I can’t help but practically drown myself in.
I got two shades from the FormalEYES palette from the StyleEYES collection by Costal Scents and I am IN LOVE. I wasn’t expecting these to be very good since the palette itself is only $12, that’s right TWELVE. That’s only two burritos! My sample came with a matte light beige shade and a beautiful, shimmery brown cranberry color. I wore this today and was so insanely impressed. The color payoff was killer, better than some designer brands like Bobbi Brown, and it lasted all day long with no issue. I’m so obsessed that I plan on buying the palette!
Everyone needs a good exfoliator in their lives, especially myself. I don’t think I’ve exfoliated since George Washington was our president, to be honest, so I’m really excited to give this product a try.
It’s no secret that I’m totally obsessed with eyelashes. I am guilty of buying the $35 kits that come with primer, weird cloth stuff and special mascara to make your lashes look like falsies. Do they ever work? NO. Did this product work? Hell yeah, it did! I’m so in love with this primer. It has a dark brown tint, so if you want to wear that for a more natural look you’ll look super cute. Once I layered my favorite mascara over this product I was totally sold. About to go out and buy 808230, to be honest.
Happy December everyone, hope you come across such great beauty finds like I did this month!
