Birchbox June 2016

Birchbox must have known that I wasn't so impressed with the items received in the May's Birchbox that they have packed my June box with all amazing goodies! I admit, I cheated a little and viewed my June box on the website before it arrived on my doorstep; I mainly wanted to see if I should cancel these subscription boxes because the past few months has been not-so-impressive. As soon as I saw what I was getting in the June box, I was over the moon!

LAURA GELLER New York Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator
Full Sized | USD $26.00

Laura Geller New York Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator is a luminous, warm highlighter that has an Italian dessert's rich texture with a formula that applies like powders but feels like a cream. Its' formula claims to be blendable and it is ideal for building to your perfect coverage.

I have never tried Laura Geller makeup, but I have always been curious about the brand and their products. I am so glad that Birchbox has packed my beauty box with a Laura Geller highlighter this month! As you can see in my swatch photo below, the highlighter is very pigmented and the colour is absolutely gorgeous. The sample is tiny, but you do get a lot of product and it can last you for a long time.

♥ BENEFIT Gimme Brow Volumizing Fibre Gel
Full Sized | USD $24.00

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fibre Gel is one of the new products that Benefit has recently launched. It claims to turn your messy brows into full, defined and even brows with just a few stroked. The product has volumizing microfibres and exclusive water-resistance gel that adheres to skin and hair, the brow gel is designed with a precision tip that lets you shape and blend effortlessly.

This sample is sooooo tiny, but it is THE MOST AMAZING PRODUCT IN THIS BOX! I already have plans of buying the full sized when I use up the sample. My favourite thing about this brow gel is the brush is not too big and the gel instantly set my brows, covers the hairless gaps and make my brows looks fuller.

I am currently using the Kiss Me Heavy Rotation brow gel and it has given me daily headaches, for example, I had to tie my hair back when I applied the brow gel or else my hair touch my brows and the brow gel smears everywhere. Also, when I brush the Heavy Rotation one through my brows, after applying brow pencils, the brow gel tends to wipe off some of the brow products that I have already put on the brows and sometimes I walked out of the house without realising there's weird gaps here and there on my brows.

Heavy Rotation is a complicated brow situation, but Benefit Gimme Brow is non of that and I am glad.

  1. Is it weird that I love that you got a sunscreen with your box? I love using sunscreen. I really think it helps a lot in maintaining the overall health of the skin.

    Too bad about the BB cream. But I tried putting on moisturizer with a darker foundation shade and it lightened and matched me perfectly. Perhaps it would work with the BB as well?

    1. Thanks for your suggestion Mad ♥ the idea of mixing moisturizers with BB cream hardly ever come across my mind because the ones I have tried are either too light (then I bronzed my face to make it look warmer) or it is usually the shade that match; but I think it is a very good idea ^-^ thank you ~

  2. Or you could mix the SPF and BB to lighten the shade a bit. If your skin's okay with that, because mine breaks out if I put on anything higher than an SPF 60.

    1. great idea CJ ♥ I will try that! I don't think I have come across many makeup face products with SPF60, It's most common under 50 I think.
