January 2016 Birchbox


I have mix feelings about my box. It’s actually a great box, but I’m  not super excited to get it. Probably because I am just so overloaded with stuff.

Cargo Swimmable Shadow Stick: I love shadow sticks because of the ease of application. More often than not, in the mornings I don’t have time to do a full eyeshadow look, so being able to qucikly and easily swipe some color is ideal. This is a gorgeous deep bronze color that I’ve already fallen in love with. However, I noticed after I applied it for the swatch, it sets very quickly so any smudging needs to be done immediately!

  • I get a Birchbox too and yours way so much nicer than mine this month!! I got the Parlor shampoo and conditioner samples though and they were gorgeous! xx

    • That’s the funny thing about birchbox- there’s almost always a different box that is “better” than yours. I’m happy sometimes and other times not so much!

      • Me too! My parents bought me a years subscription for Christmas though, so at least it’s not me taking the risk, hehe! I love my other subscription boxes though, they haven’t disappointed me yet!

  • I haven’t tried any of these but I would love to check out the Cargo Swimmable Shadow Stick! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts on these products!


    • I liked it initially but now I’m having a hard time with uneven application since it sets so quickly. I think I just need to play around with it some more. Thanks for stopping by!
