April 2017 Birchbox


This box reminded me that I need to start wearing makeup regularly again. I don’t wake up early enough half the time. I have all this great stuff and it’s just sitting around. I do like the idea of makeup removal wipes as a faster solution for cleaning off my face after work but before my workouts. Since I’m getting more and more interested in running, I do have concerns about the makeup getting into my pores once I start sweating.

As for the blowout spray, I’ll bever use it since I use a flat iron instead. Same goes for the texturizing spray. Due to my hair type, using products to make my hair bigger is the exact opposite of what I need to happen. XD I prefer smoothing and frizz control.

This was a 50/50 sort of box where I wasn’t as impressed as I feel I could have been. But they can’t all be diamonds so I’m not gonna complain too much.

March 2016 Birchbox


Yet another instance of a subscription box helping me out, I’ve been needing a new set of brown neutral eye shadow. My old Sephora one has seen better days (I broke it…) so this is a perfect replacement. When I do get up early enough in the morning do put on makeup, I tend to stick with that color palate instead of something that if I screw up applying it, I will look like a clown…

As for the rest of it, I will take any anti-aging stuff I can find and I am curious to see if a blow out spray will work on my hair even though I use a flat iron instead. Heat protection is heat protection, right?

No really, I don’t know. This is why I stick with this subscription box. To learn this stuff.


Influenster Mary Kay Box


This box is pretty nifty. I was just thinking I needed more mascara and here one arrives in the mail for me! YAY! I’m not big on lipstick but the shade they sent me is cool. And the last thing in the world I need is a makeup brush cause I have so many but you know, this one is pretty soft.

Nothing really to say about this box other than I’ve never tried Mary Kay before and what they sent me is nice. I already have my personal faves from other brands, though.
