April’s Rainy Days Birchbox

IMG_20140417_090424Hello!

I was very happy with this month’s subscription boxes!

The Birchbox has a bit of a rainy day theme, and was chock-full of goodies I was actually pretty stoked to try!

I received the Frederic Fekkai Technician Color Care shampoo.  I LOVE Fekkai products (particularly that olive oil glossing line), so I’m very excited to try this color line.  His products are fantastic, so I’m sure it’ll be great!

Next up was a Kind Healthy Grains granola-ish bar in Maple Pumpkin Seed.  I haven’t tasted it yet, but I threw this little guy into my purse for a snack emergency.  I do love it when they do that!

I also received a Color Club mini polish in Heirloom Pearls, a slightly shimmery, creamy white shade from their Gala’s Gems collection.  Usually I love the idea of white polish far more than the wear and formulation on actual white polishes – but this one is pretty solid.  It’s got a very pearly finish, and goes on pretty streak free.  I really like it!  The only downside is that it does discolor a little bit after a day or two of wear.

Then there is the Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eye Pencil in Silver.  This is a great pencil!  The silver is metallic, but wearable, and pretty long-wearing!  I love colored liners, so I think it’s awesome!

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eye Pencil in Silver and the Balm How You Like Them Apples? Cheek stain in Pie

Last up was one of my favorite little goodies – the Balm How ‘Bout Them Apples Cheek stain in Pie.  I’ve been eyeballing this palette for over a month, so this sampling may just be the thing that puts me over into purchase!  My whole exposure to the Balm has been through subscription boxes, and I’m pretty sure they are gaining momentum as a fun, playful, and fantastic addition to my personal and pro makeup stash.  The packaging is beyond adorable and creative, and they have pug mascots as well – you know that works for me! :)

So this was a great one!  Did you get anything good?
