Birchbox October 2015

Hello my lovely ladies and gents! Today I have an exciting new subscription box to share with you guys! It’s my Birchbox subscription for October 2015! It might not be new to most people. I’m sure a lot of you have heard about Birchbox. But it is new to me.

I never considered Birchbox because I always wanted more full size products when it came to subscription boxes. For those of you not familiar with Birchbox, they are a subscription box company that sends out samples sized products every month for $10 a box. Lately I’ve been seeing more and more people post their Birchbox with samples of items that I want to try with a decent amount of product despite the fact that they are sample sizes. So I decided to give it a try and it turned out better than I could have hoped. This is probably my 4th box now and I have loved every box so far. I’ve ended up trying everything in the box and loved most if not all things that I received.

So I guess it goes without saying that I am very satisfied with Birchbox! Anyways, here’s what I recieved for the month of October.

Alright, I know it doesn’t look like much but there’s a bunch of awesome things in this box. And it’s really pretty!

This is the Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo. I have heard so many amazing things about this dry shampoo. I’ve been so curious about it but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much money when my favorite dry shampoo (Batiste) is only $7. Less if I have coupons. I want to see if it can really beat my Batiste and if it’s worth the splurge.

Next is the Eyeko Black Magic Mascara. I have never heard of this brand before but it does spark my interest. I’ve never seen a mascara in a tube before and I do like the brush at first glance. So I hope I end up liking this mascara.

This one is called ModelCo Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick in Kitty. Personally, I don’t have high hopes for this. I’ve been way too disappointed by this brand. I’ve yet to find a product I like from this brand. But it is a nice color. I did swatch it but I lost the picture of the swatch. Swatching it went smoothly. It was creamy and felt hydrating on my hand but the pigmentation was lackluster. I’ll leave it at that.

This is the Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre. Good thing they have a description on the Birchbox flier because the description on the product was in french. This moisturizer claims that it heals dryness and preps the skin for makeup. So I guess it’s a primer and a moisturizer too? Those are huge claims for a moisturizer though.

Last but not the least is the Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels. I’m always excited when I get samples like these. I have panda eyes and always looking for ways to treat them or make them appear better. These types of pads are usually hard to come by and when they do, they cost a fortune and only have 5 packs in one set which usually means 5 uses. So I’m excited to try it!

Anyways thanks for stopping by!

Until next time!

As Always,
Nicole ❤

  1. I see the brand ModelCo at Winners (our TJMaxx) from time to time but I never know if it’s good or not. Thanks for letting me know that’s it’s generally NOT good. 😛 I’ll save my money.
    Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre is a cult favourite among makeup artists – I first heard about it from the Pixiwoo sisters! I haven’t tried it but I’ve heard it can be a bit too greasy if your skin is combo / oily.
    I’ve read good things about the Skyn eye pads – I’m curious to try those too.

    • Thanks for letting me know. I hope Embryolisse works for me. I have dry skin, so maybe it won’t be so bad. I’m very curious about the Skyn eye pads too. I’ll try to do an update, once I’ve used them enough to have an opinion.
