Birchbox March 2015 - First Impressions

Birchbox March 2015

I have gotten really into beauty subscription boxes lately. I have a few on my try list. One of them is Birchbox

Birchbox March 2015
Birchbox | $10/per month
Birchbox March 2015 was themed around CREATIVITY. They wanted the users to think outside the box with the items they receive. I did not have a lot of time to use all the products, I just got them recently. So here's just a first impressions of each. The prices mentioned are of their full-sized versions.

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle | $21.95
This elixir claims to smooth, protect, detangle, condition, add shine and lock colour. I have used it only once and quite enjoyed it. But for now, I don't know how true are the claims. Though it is pretty weightless and smells really nice, kinda sweet.

Embryolisse 24-Hour Miracle Cream
Embryolisse 24-Hour Miracle Cream | $16-24
Oops I haven't even opened this cream yet. I am pretty happy with my current skincare and clear complexion that I did not feel like experimenting. Embryolisse says this cream can be used as a moisturiser, makeup remover and primer.

Harvey Prince Sincerely
Harvey Prince Sincerely | $55
I quiet enjoy getting perfume as samples. Harvey Prince Sincerely is an exotic mix of Indian tuberose, Turkish cyclamen and Spanish mandarin. The fragrance is sweet and spicy. Quite unique, that I enjoy spraying it now and then, but not my type that I will purchase in full size.

Jelly Pong Pong GLOW GETTER Highlighter | $14
Out of the box this is the only product I am quite happy about. I love highlighters. This one's a pretty rose gold shade with a shimmery finish.

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss - Angel Kiss | $22
Glossy Kiss is a tinted lip balm and cheek colour. I have heard a lot of good things about it. It being so moisturising, glossy and nicely pigmented. The only sad part is Angel Kiss is just not my shade. It is too brown for me.

Overall, I am not overly thrilled with the contents of this box. It would have weighed more on the pleasing side if at least Mirenesse Glossy Kiss was in another shade.

Since, Birchbox is not available in Pakistan, I got it through Viva La Glam for PKR 1500.
