Birchbox Birthday Goodies!

Hello beautiful people!

Now the products I'm showing today were bought last month for my birthday but life got in the way sooo the post is only being wrote now. I know, I know, I'm shocking! Haha.

As you may have guessed from my bye bye Birchbox post ( I cancelled my subscription as I wasn't feeling the samples anymore. I'd rather save my £13 a month and buy a lipstick or eyeshadow. Lol. Anyway just before my birthday (June 7th) I got an email from Birchbox with a coupon code for 20% off as a birthday treat! Nicely done guys!

I decided to have a browse in the Birchbox eshop. Let the games begin! ;)

I finally decided to get the balm voyage palette by the balm cosmetics, a brow set from pixi by Petra and the puff off eye gel from benefit.

Guys! I love this palette! 

The shadows are fabulous, so blendable and pigmented. The lighter shades do need a base to make the colours pop more but the darker shades are on point! I love the dark teal shade *holds up hands* beautiful!

I was really impressed with this set. Great size shadows in a mixture of matte, shimmer and metallic shades.

Plus 3 lip colours, as well as a little mirror. All stored in this cute travel themed set that has magnetic closures. Love!

The eye set by pixi is really cool. On one side it's a pencil to add colour, depth and shape to your brows. Slanted tip helps give the brows a natural finish. Then the other side is a tinted gel with a small mascara type brush which sets your brows perfectly. 

The colour isn't overpowering, it literally adds a subtle tint with the main focus being setting those hairs down. Great idea and I'm glad I tried this product and brand :)

Finally I went for the puff off eye gel by Benefit.

I don't really have puffy under eyes but I tried a sample of this and I really liked how cooling it was and the salmon pink shade helps to lighten and brighten my dark bags whilst the formula hydrates my under eye area so it doesn't appear as sunken. Always a winner! Lol.

The great thing about this little order? I only paid £6! Why you're asking? Well my total was £70 minus 20% = £56. Then my friends, I realised I had saved my points from previous purchases and reviews which gave me £50 off! :D add in free shipping and I paid £6! Happy dance!

Must admit I'm glad I got to try Birchbox plus earn points and take advantage of this birthday treat. What do you think of my goodies? 

Much Love,
