Birchbox: January 2016

Just a quick one today about the January 2016 Birchbox - a super cute collaboration with Pinterest. Not only does this box include the usual 5 luxe beauty treats, it also comes with a #NoFilter compact mirror and a bunch of illustrated post cards from Pinterest to help you on the road to feeling inspired in the new year.

My box contained the Benefit They're Real! Lash Primer, Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner, Caudalie Fleur de Vigne Shower Gel, Absolution L'Eau Soir et Matin Cleansing Water, Parlor by Jeff Chastain Moisturizing & Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner.

To be completely honest - there were only two real stand out products in the box, and those were the Benefit They're Real! Lash Primer and the Eyeko Fat Liquid Eyeliner (which I received a full size of, yaaaas!).

I actually already own the Benefit Lash Primer and am completely obsessed with it! It's perfect worn alone for a 'natural' makeup look, giving you a wide flutter of dark brown lashes, or if used under your favorite mascara it will further amplify the effects. I use this every day, mainly just on its own for a toned-down look at work, or on my bottom lashes if I'm wearing falsies and don't want a total doll-eyed feel.

The Eyeko Eyeliner was new to me but I fell in love on first flick. It's so easy to use (I'm completely cack-handed with eyeliners and can only manage ones with firm nibs), and makes drawing in that cat-eye shape a whole lot easier - not to mention quicker, as the thick shape means you don't need to fill the line in. Seriously, two seconds and you're done. No need for faffing about with sellotape or all those liquid eyeliner guide products.
