I need to get finished with these Birchboxes haha. June was my last month so I'm debating if I want to sign up for another 6 months.. but I really need to hold myself to a no-buy. I just went through my polish and makeup today and I have way too much... The ONLY thing I will let myself buy is something that I don't have a sample or duplicate of... and the damn Ariel storybook palette whenever Sephora decides to let us have them..
In April's Birchbox was 2 flavors of looseleaf tea from Kusmi Tea Paris.
Honestly, I haven't had these yet, but to me, tea is tea. It's better than water, not as tasty as soda.. but ya know. haha, plus it's been so freakin hot here that I can't deal with anything warm. At all.
Second, was Supergoop!'s anti aging eye cream with SPF 40. It smelled pretty sunscreen-ey, but it's nice and lightweight and I have also used it on my part in my hair because that burns first for me.
Next was 2 generous samples of Oribe's shampoo & conditioner for color treated hair. These smelled so good and I used these the first 2 times I washed my hair after recently coloring it.
I really liked this shower gel from SKIN&Co Roma.. it seriously smells so good... not too floral, not too orangey.. it actually smelled what I imagine Italy..smells like? If that makes any sense. A little goes a long way with this also.
Last was a Mirenesse Glossy Kiss Lipstick in Quick Kiss. I never do red lips but as I get older, I'm trying more and more lip colors. Honestly, I thought this color was too orange/warm for me.. I usually look better in cooler tones. So, I'm giving this to my sister in law who actually bought me this subscription! She has a warmer skintone than I do and looks AMAZING in red lips. =]
Formula wise, this was nice though. Not too slick but not too matte. It stained a little but not a problem.
