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!

  • Everyone talks about eyebrows being sisters not twins... I feel the same way about eyelashes. Loved trying out the @marcbeauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. It's easy for this one to get on the clumpy side, but I think wiping the excess off really helps. What are your favorite mascara tricks to make them look more even?

  • Happy Wednesday!! Went foundation-less for this and forgot how much I like it! Before getting into makeup I would only do concealer and powder. After I got into makeup I started feeling like I HAD to wear some sort of base. You don't HAVE to do anything and you'll look gorgeous as long as you're feeling comfortable with yourself
💪🏼

Aquí me salte la base. Antes de que me obsesionada con el maquillaje solo usaba corrector y polvos. Luego empece a sentir que TENÍA que usar algún tipo de base. La verdad es que no TIENES que hacer nada. Te verás hermosa con tal de que te estás sintiendo cómoda!
