February Birchbox

This is my last Birchbox in my 3-month gift subscription from The Stylish Housewife (thanks again to her for getting it for me)!  And it just so happens to be my most favorite so far...I loved every single item in it.  Take a look:


1) EYE ROCK Designer Liner
What it says: Stop wrestling with the liquid liner and achieve a perfect cat eye with these single-use stick-on liner strips.
My review: I am beyond excited about these.  But, instead of trying them now, I've decided to save it for a separate post so I can show you pictures of how they look and the different designs inside the pack.

2) dermalogica Daily Microfoliant
What it says: Skincare insiders swear by this genius exfoliating powder.  Just add water to create a rich paste that will buff dead cells away.
My review: This couldn't have come at a better time - I have been on the hunt for a new exfoliant and I absolutely love this one.  It says to use daily, but because of my sensitive skin, I'll probably only do this once a week.

3) Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint
What it says: The votes are in, and this award-winning tinted moisturizer tops the list.  It's our daily shortcut to dewy, glowing skin.
My review: It definitely does what it says and gives you a nice glow...but if you need a medium to full coverage makeup, this isn't for you.  It will be perfect for me in the summer months when I want something lighter on my face.

4) The Original beautyblender
What it says: This hot pink sponge is a pro favorite that helps your foundation look airbrushed, no Photoshop required. 
My review: I have been wanting one of these since I saw an ad recently about them - now that I've tried it, I will never go back to my old sponges.  Because of its unique shape, you can blend your makeup better into those hard-to-reach spots like the inner corner of eyes & around the nose.

I also received 2 "lifestyle extras" including the adorable heart-shaped neon nail file (so cute!) seen in the picture above and a digital download of six free songs from a new indie rock band (I'll give this to my hubby).

FUn! Digging your box better though, especially that cool sponge I would have loved to test out. I got the eyeliner, too... excited to try it!

After seeing what was in this month's Box, I'm so bummed that I canceled my subscription! I've wanted a beautyblender for SO long. I actually signed up for next month's box, because I heard it's supposed to be a good one (Eva Chen, beauty editor for Teen Vogue, picked the items for it... and she's always tweeting amazing products)... so we'll see what happens after that!

This WAS a great Birchbox month! I was hoping for those eyeliner strips but I got the lip tattoo instead. :\ But I DID get the beautyblender which I've been wanting to try too so I was really excited about that! Can't wait to see you review the eyeliner strips!

You did get a good box! I just started using the beautyblender and won't ever use anything else--it's amazing!

I did find that the beautyblender works best when you wet it first, then use it.

We got the exact same box! Can't wait to try the eyeliner and I was pumped about the beauty blender because I've been on the fence about ordering it. I'm reviewing some mineral makeup right now so I haven't tried it yet.

You got a great box! I wanted that dermalogica exofliant!

That beauty blender sounds amazing! :-)

Looks like a great Birchbox! I've seen those sponges and am tempted to get one. Although I don't wear foundation, I'm thinking it might be nice to use with under eye concealer.

The eyeliners look so cool! I am so sad I didn't get this month's Birchbox - I got my subscription in just under the wire and have to wait until March.
