Birchbox: March

Before we even get into the Birchboxing, we need to workshop the rest of my beauty life.

The Bad: I know that I am really late to the game with BB and CC Creams.  I tried one out on Monday (L’Oreal) because I had a sample and we all know that I’ll try anything once.  I should have known when it came out of the tube that it was going to be nothing but trouble – I feel that it was more of a sibling to the foot cream Cady Heron gave to Regina George than something you would want on your face.  Undeterred, I slathered it on anyway, waiting for the restorative magic to take effect and instead I got three zits.   So there’s that.

The (really) Good: When we were in Houston, Megan gave me  a tube of Stila Highlighter.  What is highlighter?  I’m still not really sure as I’ve never actually taken the time to source a tutorial on how to use it.  But it is sort of a shimmery war paint (I think) that gives you cheekbones that could cut glass.  It has changed my life in all ways and may be my new #2 after #1 Mascara.  It seems fairly idiot-proof so far, so I can be into it.

And now, The March Birchbox.


In the Box: COOLA Tinted Matte SPF 30 for Face, English Laundry No. 7 for Her, HAVVN Night Cream, Luster Premium White Luster NOW! Toothpaste + Distinctly White Set

I just opened this box on Monday, so I haven’t had the chance to use any of the products yet.  I am simultaneously thrilled and terrified by the Whitening Toothpaste.  I have a pretty good relationship with Colgate Optic White right now, but I had a terrifying experience with white strips in high school.  With no real desire to repeat that, I’m being just a bit cautious.

As you can see, I also got another tube of my new arch nemesis: BB Cream.  Since this one is for all over and NOT just my face, I am a bit curious to know what it could to for my poor hands and the other skin that winter has been especially vicious to.  Spring starts on Thursday, but I feel like this could be a long recovery.

Highlighter users, what brands are you using and loving?


One response to “Birchbox: March

  1. I am currently in the market for a highlighter than I love. Have tried one that’s like a chubby eyeliner, and it’s okay. Have also tried a powdered highlighter by The Balm – like it, don’t love it. I like everything else Stila that I own, so I’ll have to check out theirs.
