Birchbox ‘Countdown to Midnight’

Good morning friends Happy Monday!

I have a bit of a back log of blogs to out up, and contemplated not posting a few as they are from December, but why the heck not, it’s all relative

When I ordered my first Birchbox, I wasn’t sure if I’d receive the (late) December or given early payment for the January box.

I received the December box, ‘Countdown to midnight’

My first order was discounted and cost just £7.77, I ordered on the 26th December, and received it around 10days later, I also received 2 free gifts. What more could you ask for?

Firstly, how stunning is this emerald green bag. A decent sized bag, with gold features,this plush velveteen bag is so pretty to have sat on your vanity.

EYEKO Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner – Travel size RRP £9.00 (Full size RRP £18)
I have a few liquid liners on the go, but have heard fantastic reviews about this liner. Although I do prefer a brush style tip, this felt liner has a solid point, I can see this making a cateye easy with just one swoop

Percy & Reed Up, Up & Away Root Lift Mousse 200ml £15.00
Heat protecting root lift, giving your hair a boost and a bit of flare. Perfect for a dull hair day

LAPCOS Charcoal exfoliating and cleansing pad RRP £10
‘This dual-sided pad lifts away heavy makeup and impurities from pores while rice and soybean extracts provide hydration and anti-aging benefits’
I haven’t used this cleansing pad, Im not keen on charcoal products so will pass this onto a friend.

HAAN Hand Sanitizer – Dew of Dawn
30ml £5.95
Now, when I received a hand sanitizer 2 years ago in my Glossybox, I was far from impressed. But hey, let’s get with the times. A now, essential item for leaving the house, this sanitizer smells fresh, without being too potent, with pretty and sleek packaging.

Birchbox accessory RRP £12
Dusty Pink Eyelash Curlers
These bad boys are thick and sturdy
The past month I’ve loved curling my lashes – Even if I’m having a no make up day, curling your lashes and a bit of lip balm makes me feel pretty and put together.

Chella La Vie Eyeshadow Palette RRP £19.95
I’ve never heard of this brand, but when it comes to quads, they know what they’re doing.
This vegan and cruelty free quad is ideal. My perfect deep brown, with bit a undertone of red or grey to be seen, the most gorgeous gold, cream and transition shade.

Free gifts

Nails inc gel effect kensington passage RRP £15
No doubt this summer I’ll be reaching for the brighter pinks and oranges, and although I do like the colour and the formular, it screams 2014, along with mint green nails. Anyone else?

Lord and Berry lipstick – Shade ‘ Vogue’ RRP £17 Full size (received a mini)
A beautiful vibrant shade, suitable for most skin tones. This lipstick does smudged easily, may be better paired with a lipliner and a little translucent powder.

Overall, I couldn’t be happier with this bag.
A good variety of products, at a extremely good price, and again, the most beautiful bag.
