I Hit the Birchbox Jackpot

I thought about not reviewing my August Birchbox since everyone and their mother does every.single.month. But ladies, I've hit the Birchbox jackpot! Well, in my opinion at least. I was super happy with my July Birchbox, but August's has exceeded my expectations. I can honestly say I'm really happy with every item. Thanks for treating a sister right, Birchy.

So without further adieu, my August Birchbox goodies...

You don't have to tell me. I know you love my AWESOME iPhone pictures. I don't own a fancy shmancy camera. Sorry I'm not sorry...

1 // Beauty Fixation Makeup Remover // When I first saw these, I seriously said out loud, "Why the hell did Birchbox send me Q-tips?" But then, after actually reading the packaging, I realized I was given makeup remover gold. These little Q-tip swabs are filled with makeup remover! Just hold vertically, bend one end of the swab, and voila! Perfect for cleaning up messy eyeliner or a mascara oops. I may or may not have intentionally smeared mascara around my eye yesterday just to try these bad boys out. HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THESE?!?

2 // Schick Hydro Silk Razor // I think Birchbox read my mind. The morning before I received my Birchbox, while shaving obvi, I realized that I was going to need to buy a new razor soon. Mine is falling apart; the razor blade barely stays on. Who knew razor's fall apart?! And then I'm given this gem. A real, live razor. Not a disposable one that slices your legs like a perfectly cooked turkey on Thanksgiving. And the best part? It also came with a coupon for blade refills. It was like smooth leg Christmas over here, peeps!

3 // Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fluer // I love this scent. I tried it on recently at Ulta and fell in love. And while I splurge on stupid things every now and then, $70 for a bottle of perfume is just ridiculous to me! Girls gotta pay her student loans and car payment! So I was very excited to see this little sample. I can pretend like I dropped the big bucks and smell all pretty.


4 // Miss Jessie's Original Quick Curls // I've been eying this curl cream at Target for a couple months now, but again with these ridiculous prices. I wasn't about to drop $32 dollars on a product that I didn't know if I liked or not. But once again, Birchbox did me right. And I'M.IN.LOVE. Quick curls is ah-maze-balls. My curls have never been so unfrizzy in my life, not to mention is smells so good. I want to eat my hair. I really want to try this curl cream in the winter months when my curls lack life and volume.

5 // Pixi Beauty Lid Last Shadow Pen in Shell Sheen // First, who doesn't love a free full-sized product? I was excited just for that reason. But I also really like this shadow pen. I used it as an all over lid color as well as a liner for my bottom lid, and I was very happy with the product. The color is really soft and pretty and the product lasted all day with very little fading. A+ in my book!

Well ladies....that's it, that's all! Until tomorrow. Peace, Love & Lil Wayne...

...and that is why I love Lil Wayne

I'm jealous of your box! I was happy about the razor but not worth the $10 this month {IMO} =/

My Birchbox hasn't arrived yet but I am going to be disappointed if I don't have the makeup remover included in my box! The makeup remover sounds amazing considering I have masacara oops' every single day.

I did Birchbox for a few months and always seemed to get things I wouldn't use, so I stopped getting it. And now awesome stuff like that comes in it...just my luck :(

I got Quick Curls in my box but I did NOT get a bottle. I got two pouches (granted there seems to be a LOT of product in those patches) and can't wait to try them!! And I'm really excited about the razor, it saves me from having to run out and buy new Venus cartridges.

I felt so-so about my Birchbox this month...I did LOVE the makeup removers and the razor- perfect! I also got a good face wash but the rest of it was just eh.

Oh, and I found a REALLY similar product for the eye makeup remover at Target! It's by Almay, I think? I haven't compared prices yet but I'm sure it's a better deal! Just an FYI :)

Have a great rest of your week!

That curling products seems awesome but agree that $32 is a lot to fork over
