January Birchbox: Sample Choice

It has been a VERY long time since I did a Birchbox review.  Last year Birchbox really upped their game with guest editor curated boxes and sample choices, so after subscribing for years I decided to sign up for a second subscription.  This month, Birchbox offered a choice between their regular box with a choice of one sample (all other items a surprise) or the feature box full of Korean Beauty favorites.  Having two subscriptions, I chose one of each. 

This is what was in my sample choice box:

For the sample choice box, Birchbox gave subscribers a choice between Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner, TONYMOLY Delight tint and IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer.  I didn't end up selecting a sample and instead let Birchbox select it for me.  I ended up getting two  of the choices in my box.

Bombshell Blowout Spray, amika (full-size, $24)  This is described as a "lightweight styler that volumizes, smooths, and protects for a sleek yet bouncy 'do."  I feel like I keep getting this product in my birchbox. I don't mind it.  When I do blow dry my hair, it helps make it smoother and holds my style longer.  (sample size 1 oz/$3 value)

Lait- Creme Concentre, Embryolisse (full-size, $28) This is described as "a make-up artist fave, this french moisturizer heals dryness and preps skin for foundation."  I had purchased this full size last winter when my skin was feeling super dry.  This was a miracle product for my skin and never felt greasy.  I am excited to have received this in a sample/travel size.  (sample size 5 ml/$1.87 value)

DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo, R+Co (full-size, $29) "Style-refreshing spray that saps excess oil, give hair volume and body, and adds tousled texture"  I have received this as a sample before as well. I have not yet tried it for no other reason except that I have so many dry shampoos that I am working through.  It have received good reviews so I am excited to try it.  (sample size 1.6 oz/$7.37 value)

Fat Liquid Liner, Eyeko (full-size, $16) "The eyeliner delivers the same smudgeproof  rich color in a thicker, bolder line than the original skinny liner."  I have been really into  liquid eyeliner lately, so I used this immediately.  I am obsessed!  Its so easy to use and does not budge at all.  I only wish it came in other colors.  (received full size)

Delight Tony Tint in Red, TONYMOLY (full-size, $6) Described as a "lightweight super pigmented lip stain that dries quickly for a sheer, matte finish that won't budge all day."  This is a nice stain.  It gives me that just bitten cherry lip. (sample size unknown)

The total value of this box (minus the lip stain) is $28.24

Stay tuned for my reveal of my Korean Beauty Favorites Birchbox.
