February 2016 Birchbox Review

Updated on February 17, 2016

What is Birchbox?

Birchbox is a monthly subscription which gives you opportunities to receive the latest beauty products through your door to try. There is always a full size product and sample products in the box and the boxes are always a delight to have. This months box was a beautiful box with the quote ''shine bright like a diamond'' from the Rihanna song, Diamonds.

The subscription is monthly and only costs £12 or $10 if you are based in the US. In my opinion it is totally worth it.

My Review on Products

Spectrum Collections Tapered Powder Brush

This brush is very cute and colourful. The fact that it looks like this makes me want to use it. The brush can be used for any powder that is being put on the face.

When I use this, it does not feel harsh on my skin as the bristles are very soft and make my skin feel nice. The results of the brush after use is very impressive and I shall continue using this brush as it is worth buying or receiving as a sample.

You simply dust the brush across your chosen powder then apply to your face where needed. The small head means that your make up will be very precise!

LOC One and Done Shadow Stick

When I used this eyeshadow stick it completely converted me to using shadow sticks instead of eyeshadow palettes. It makes eyeshadow quick and simple to apply, also making it easy to get a 'smoky' look with the stick.

Apply all over your lids and blend with your fingertips for a soft smoky look or use as a bold liner!

Number 4 Lumiere d'Hiver Super Comb Prep and Protect

This makes my hair smell delicious and it helps that it is a leave in conditioner as it untangles my hair and helps flyaways in an instant. This is ideal if your hair needs a little oomph as it simply saves you in hair crisises if you are on the go.

Spray this evenly through towel dried hair, comb through and style as normal!

Delarom Creme Acquaconfort

This cream has Sweet Almond, Apricot Oils, Vitamin's A, C and also E. This helps to nourish and soothe our dehydrated skin without weighing it down. This makes my skin feel super soft. It is a very light feeling cream and sinks into the skin very quickly, making the skin not feel greasy.

After cleansing, massage a small amount onto your face and neck and let it sink and do its job!

The Balm Cosmetics Frat Boy Blush/ Shadow

When using this, it gives my face a glow. The super concentrated pigments gives your skin a rosy glow and trust me, it makes your skin look amazing. It simply gives you a fake flush and is very sucessful

Swoosh a fluffy brush all over the brush, making sure all the bristles pick up some powder, then apply to the apples of your cheeks or sweep over eyelids - it might be small but prepare to be amazed by the super concentrated pigments!

L Erickson Grab and Go Ponytail Holder

This beautiful ponytail holder makes it worth having in your hair. It makes you feel fashionable as the design and look of the hair tie makes it look like something fashion models use on the runway. The colour will go with any hair colour.

When I used this, my hair did not catch at all on it. You could get away with wearing it as a bracelet for hair emergencies. It is metal free which is also handy. You could use this to tie your hair up quickly to put makeup on, go to the gym or just simply to tie your hair

Use this sturdy hair elastic to tie up ponytails or secure braids without any snagging!
