December 2015 Birchbox


The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream


Swatches: Eyeshadow Duo, Highlighting Cream

Sorry to be posting my December 2015 Birchbox in January. I’m just now sorting through all of the stuff I’ve accumulated over the holidays. Believe me when I tell you… it’s a lot. I’m getting through the pile though!

I guess it wouldn’t be a Birchbox if I didn’t get yet another volumizing spray. Hah! The Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray sounds nice. Maybe I’ll actually hold onto this one and give it a try.

During the winter hand creams come in really handy. The Soap & Paper Factory Shea Butter Hand Cream is really nice. The scent is a bit much, but it’s still pleasant. I personally prefer more subtle and less perfumey scents. After a while it’s not so strong and it really does leave my hands feeling softer and smoother.

The Beauty Crop Lighting Crew Highlighting Cream sounds interesting. It’s a versatile cream with green tea and antioxidants. It works under your foundation or can be combined with your body lotion for a luminous look. I’ll definitely give it a try.

*This sample arrived a little leaky which spilled into the cap. It’s not too bad, but I had to work quickly and couldn’t set it down otherwise more came spilling out. On the plus side you get to see how rich it looks!

I’m all about the hair oils lately. So you can bet that the Beauty Protector Protect & Oil will be getting a lot of use. It smells like a few of the other Beauty Protector products I’ve used. Which to me smells like vanilla.

And last, but certainly not least is the Coastal Scents® styleEYES Palette. I received a cute little duo. I’ll definitely work this into a look later on this week. There’s not much to say about it. The lighter shade was pretty powdery, but the darker shade was much more pigmented. And it’s actually really pretty. I really like getting those little Coastal Scents samples so I’m pretty excited to try it out.

  4. The Coastal Scent duo is so much bigger than some CS samples I’ve received in the past! I got several in tiny round pans, so small I have to use a pencil brush to use them…

  5. Really like The Lighting Crew highlighter. I find that powder highlighers just sit on top of my skin and settles into lines .. perhaps a cream would be better.
