Can we just take a minute to realise the majority of the summer is over. ANYWAY on a brighter note, it's August, meaning it's Birchbox unboxing time! And I'll let you in on a little secret, this has been my favourite box so far! So let's get into it:
Spectrum, A05 Brush in Glam Clam, RRP £59.99 for full set
I have never been so excited by a makeup brush before. LOOK AT HOW BEAUTIFUL IT IS! I chose the 'Glam Clam' range for it's wild colours, which make me so happy. Not only is it stunning to look at, it's stunning to use as well. The bristles are so incredibly soft, it almost feels like you're stroking yourself. And the shape of the brush is so versatile, as it's gently tapered you can use it for whatever you want. Whether you use it for highlight, bronzer or just to caress, it's got you covered.
LOC, One and Done Shadow Stick in 'Out of Your Shell', RRP £8.00
I'm very excited to try this baby out, it's a creamy eyeshadow stick that is meant to take out all the drama of brushes and blending. I think I'll use this to brighten up my eyelids more than anything, maybe as a cheeky brow bone highlight. As it is wonderfully creamy and smooth, it blends with zero effort. The ultimate lazy girl product!
Number 4, Sugar Texturizing Spray, RRP £20.00
This spray speaks to me on another level. Its claim is to create soft, loose waves without the crunch. This is such a gorgeous idea especially in the summer months, when we're all aiming for that 'natural beach babe' vibe. If England ever bucks its ideas up that is. Rain in August is cruel and unusual. It also claims to withstand heat and humidity, which makes it the perfect holiday companion – creating the waves we all want but without the frizz! Plus it smells like sweets, who doesn't want that?
Nuxe, Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer, RRP £20.00
Again, the perfect companion for holiday. This little bottle of goodness is packed with essential oils that are not only fabulous for you skin, but it's full of shimmer. Giving you that 'look how tanned I am' feeling. Not only is it for the skin, it can be used as a highlighter or even in your hair to give your mane some sparkle. The ultimate mermaid product.
Whish, Renewing Mud Mask, RRP £29.00
I'm such a fiend when it comes to face masks, especially mud masks, that I used it the second I read the label. EVEN before taking my blog photos. Fearless. This product is a lot lighter than traditional mud masks, making it so you don't have to sit around with it on for a lifetime. A massive tick for me. It left my skin feeling incredibly soft and supple, and the next day my pores were noticeably smaller. I could have wept with joy. I'm all about this mask.
Another exciting Birchbox package. This has definitely been my favourite so far and I'm so excited to try these amazing goodies out!
