Best beauty box?! Birchbox

For me one of the most exciting Beauty box announcements so far this year was that every subsciber of Birchbox would be receiving a Full Size Spectrum Collections beautiful makeup brush this month. I have been lusting over these amazing brushes for a while now and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw they had joined forces with Birchbox. 

Everyone received the same brush which is the Tapered powder brush worth £7.99. It's the perfect brush, not too small and not too big. It can be used for so many uses like applying highlight or bronzer, a setting powder or I would even use it for my contour. It's the most beautiful and sturdy brush, even more perfect to look at in person. I adore the light pink handle with magnificent turquoise and purple bristles that are super soft. 

As Birchbox subscribers we also have access to purchasing more of these amazing brushes... I might have already made a purchase with my points!!! Look out on my social media for when they arrive. Stay tuned til the end of this post for an amazing discount and code.

This months box contains some incredible brands! I am loving that I received an Ole Henriksen truth serum collagen booster, a really great skincare brand. I have heard so many great things about this brand and this serum. It's a potent vitamin C complex that helps with fine lines, plump skin and protects which definitely something I need as I suffer with expression lines across my forehead. Full size of this retails for £47. 

Birchbox have created their own makeup brand called LOC which stands for Love of Color. In ever subscribers box this month they would have a metallic shadow stick in either the shadow Perfect Cents (mine) or a silvery taupe in Champayne Problems. We could pick which shade we wanted for this box, but I was so indecisive that I couldn't pick so I just left it to see which I would receive.  

This shadow stick is perfect for a quick makeup look and can be used all over the eye lid or under the bottom lashes. It's lovely and creamy, great to apply. RRP £8.00. More shades and lip products from the LOC range can be purchased via the Birchbox Eshop.

The Balm frat boy can be used either as a eyeshadow or a blush. Personally for me I wouldn't use it as an eyeshadow as I'm not keen on pink eye looks on myself. But it's a beautiful blusher, super pigmented so can be used lightly or more heavier if you wish. Full size RRP £15.50. 

My beauty bonus this month was the Derm Eyes makeup remover wipe in a handy sachet. I'm rather intrigued to try this out as I think it's a great idea, if you where staying over somewhere the night it would be a great quick alternative to taking aload of skincare away with you. It would also be fab for people who travel on planes. A box of these is £9.50. 

And lastly the Cochine water hyacinth and lime blossom body lotion. This has a rather strong scent and can be applied to hands or body. I have applied it to my hands and found it to be rather cooling and refreshing. Full size RRP £19.00

So I'm sure you will agree it's a rather impressive box, with the the highlight being the amazing brush.

Even if you buy it just for the brush it's so worth it.
