My May Birchbox Unboxing

Helloooo if it’s May and you missed my April unboxing – you can find it here. This time around, I decided to not do the curated box, and I didn’t even choose one of my samples. It was all a surprise which I had forgotten is part of the excitement of a beauty subscription. The theme for this month is Low Effort High Impact, and it’s all about summer products and spending less time doing our makeup and more time enjoying the sun.

The items in my March box are:

1. Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder

The packaging of this is so cute! I am used to samples having very lousy packaging, but this is such a classy product and something I think would look great in a travel bag. This bronzer is very matte which I liked, I don’t think a bronzer should always have shimmer. It seemed a bit powdery when I swatched it, but the shade is very nice. I think it would be easy to over do it with this bronzer, but can’t wait to try it out on ma faaace.

2. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow

This I am not too sure about. I tried it on my hand and it definitely has a shade to it, like a golden bronzy shade, that I think would contrast with the rest of my body. I’m all for a tinted moisturizer, but a golden glow BB cream is just a little too much. Will let you know in the next few weeks if I hate it.

3. Number 4 Texture Styling Crème

I can’t wait to try this! I am all for hair products making my life easier. This is described as a “multitasking cream that gives flexible, weightless hold and a hefty dose of texture. Use it on wet or dry hair to create those perfect beachy waves.” I am dying for Instagram worthy waves now that my hair is a bit longer and I just don’t know how people make these happen. Help me!

4. Oribe Côte d’Azur Eau de Parfum

Nothing too crazy. I didn’t really love the scent, but perfumes are really hit and miss and people are very particular about their scents.

5. Vita Liberata Fabulous Self Tanning Gradual Lotion

Okay, so I’ve only ever used a tanning lotion yeaaars ago and it was something like this, a daily moisturizer that would gradually give my skin a glow. My only fear with this product is how easy it is for it to be uneven and streaky. If anyone has any application tips, I would really appreciate it!

  • With the start of a new year, I decided to set myself some realistic goals. Like traveling ✈️ But not to Australia or Japan, but keeping it local. I know I look ridiculous but it was freezing and this Colombian wasn’t made for the cold🧣I also set goals for my blog and Instagram. These are up in my blog now! Do you set yourself goals at the beginning of a new year?
••••••••••••••••••••••
Con el comienzo del nuevo año, decidí fijarme metas que fueran realistas. Cómo viajar✈️ Pero no a Australia o Japón, pero local. Se que me veo ridícula pero esta Colombiana no fue hecha para el frío 🧣 Ustedes se fijan metas al comienzo de un nuevo año?

  • Some of my favorite products together ♥️I swear @itcosmetics isn’t paying them to say nice things about them (if you want to pay me, I’ll take it), but it’s just such a nice foundation. The @milanicosmetics bronzer is great too! I have the shade Soleil ☀️but I think I need to check out their other shades as I’m quite pale right now. Do you have a bronzer for the summer and one for the winter?
•••••••••••••••••••••••
Los productos que amo todos juntos ♥️Les juro que @itcosmeticspr no me está pagando por decir cosas lindas (si me quieren pagar, se los recibo) pero la CC Cream es tan buena. Los polvos bronceadores de @milanicosmetics también son geniales! Yo los tengo en el tono Soleil ☀️pero creo que tengo que buscar otro tono que vaya mejor con piel pálida. Ustedes usas un bronzer en el verano y otro en el invierno?
