December Birchbox Beauty Review

Processed with MOLDIV

Well.. I think I have had my Birchbox subscription for about four to five months now.  To be honest, I have been a bit underwhelmed with the items so I will probably be canceling after next month.  Sorry.  Not Sorry.  So as I mentioned earlier, the items sent in this month’s box are “touch up” items for the woman on the go. Do you have time to take a close look? Let’s Go!



MODSTER – Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner– This is  a creamy, waterproof liner.  It comes in 14 different shades.  I was sent black, and I did try it out, and it does go on smooth and has a bold finish that can be used for blending. One can never have enough eyeliner pencils right?.  The full size retails for $20


Atelier Cologne – Vanille Insensee Absolue– This is a sample of the perfume.  When it comes to vanilla fragrance, you either love it or you don’t.  I will admit, this is a more subtle scent so it has just the right notes of vanilla, amber, oakwood, and jasmine.  This is definitely a perfume my mom would ask to keep if I brought it home.  This size sample is $3.00. If you want to get the big boy sizes, the 1 oz is $80, and the 3.3 oz retails for $130.


Davines – Ol All in One Milk–  This is a leave in after shampoo hair milk.  I haven’t tried it, and probably wont, but it is said to add shine, detangle, control frizz, moisturize hair, and among other things.  The active natural ingredients are pro-vitamin B5 and Roucou oil.  I am not too fond of the smell or the consistency of the liquid.  The 1.69 fl oz retails for $17 and the full size is $32.00



LOC One & Done Shadow Stick–  This is a paraben free, cruelty free shadow stick.  It is intended to be used on the eyelids, but I am sure if you are creative, you can incorporate it for other makeup fixes.  The stick is available in 10 different shades from warm to dark. This is a Birchbox exclusive and retails for $10.00.



Marcelle Hydra-C 24hr Energizing Hydrating Gel–  This is another Birchbox exclusive.  This is a lightweight gel moisturizer composed of green tea, cucumber, and vitamins C and E.  I did try it out and definitely is light and blends in the skin easily.  I am one that suffers from dry skin, so I hope this product will add some relief.  In the picture is the sample size, the full size is 1.7 fl oz and retails for $26.00


So what did you all think of December’s Birchbox? Should I keep my subscription or cancel?  It is only $10 per month.  Share your comments and thoughts below
