Hi Guys,

The beauty box/bag trend is in its full splendor since the past year in India. I had a 6 month subscription of fab bag formerly know as vellvette box. After moving here I had wanted to try Memebox but for some odd reason, never got around to ordering one. So after googling for about a week on top 10/ top 5 beauty boxes and reading on countless reviews, I went ahead and subscribed for 2 beauty boxes – Birchbox & Ipsy glam bag. Today I am sharing with you all the August Birchbox.

Price $10

Birchbox contains 5 deluxe sized samples. The products come wrapped in butter paper – the packaging and shipping is pretty fuss free. Here are the products >>

Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! Highlighter – $30

Imagine my surprise when I received highlighter!! I was planning to pick this up on my next trip to sephora. I have already tried this out at the store and fell in love with it. It is a cream to powder highlighter that gives your best features a soft focus, champagne glow. The finish is absolutely beautiful, there is no glittery gunk on you cheekbones. It does what it claims!

Coola Face SPF 30 Unscented Matte Tint – $36

This is a mineral based tinted moisturizer that softens skin, evens out tone and gives a matte finish. I am excited about this product as its a new brand for me. The moisturizer is velvet-y soft and just disappears into skin. It feels like a primer because of the silicone-sque texture but it contains NO silicones. Active ingredients include Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide, rest all of the ingredients are 100% organic.

Dr. Brandt Pores No More Cleanser – $35

It has a gel formula that degunks pores for blackheads and smoother skin. The cleanser has a pearl like sheen and lathers up well with water. It does clean skin well but the fragrance is so much like those typical intense hair shampoos. Not a big fan here.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – $20

It is a lightweight spritz that absorbs grease and revives second-day hair. I really like this dry shampoo. It adds that much needed volume and bounce to my hair that more or less looks limp.

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner $11

Blendable water proof eyeliner that goes on smoothly and it puts up all day. The formula is not smudge-proof. The shade is mulberry which is a close dupe for colorbar i glide eye pencil in shade prunella – love it

All said I am really excited and looking forward to next month’s box. The box has a great mix of skincare, haircare and makeup products all that you shell out is 10 dollars which is unbeatable.
