This is a little late (considering its May) but my box arrived just before I went on holiday at the beginning of April and then I just completely forgot all about it. My Birchbox was covered under a pile of paperwork and its only now that I’m beginning to anticipate my May box, that I realised I never blogged about the April one. So here it is!
People who read my blog regularly will know that March was my first ever Birchbox and also my first ever beauty blog. As such it was incredibly exciting to receive. I have to admit I wasn’t -as- excited about this one and sadly the contents didn’t appeal as much as the last one either.
The theme of this box, seems to be “Good Enough to Eat”. There is a long, folded leaflet full of food related beauty, as well as recipes. One of the sheets includes a cupcake recipe, straight from The Hummingbird Bakery cookbook.
The first thing out of the box, was popcorn from ProperCorn. The flavour of this is Sweet and Salty, though apparently there was also Fiery Worcester Sauce & Sun-Dried Tomato. After that, came all the beauty products.
From the card:
TheBalm Cosmetics – How ‘Bout Them Apples? Cheek & Lip Cream – An easy-to-blend cream that offers a gorgeous, long-lasting pop of colour to cheeks and lips. Dab onto the apples of cheeks and lips with fingertips.
Lord & Berry – Couture Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil – A sleek black kohl eyeliner pencil is a must-have accessory for eyes, no matter the season. Soften tip on the back of your hand and line eyes. Smudge as necessary.
