Birchbox – November

Here is a look inside my November 2012 Birchbox, available in the US

$10 a month – US

Atelier Cologne – Rose Anonyme Cologne Absolue .05oz

This pleasantly surprised me because if you ask me what one scent I dislike it's ROSE!  Well, that and geranium, but more on that another time.  I already have two other Atelier scents as they are now carrying this line at Sephora.  Correction, make that 3 Atelier scents as I am running out tomorrow to purchase this one!  It smells of spicy ginger, a touch of bergamot and sexy rose.  I had this on all day and kept getting a beautiful whiff of myself every so often.  Very intoxicating, and office appropriate.  The scent lasts and of course the bottle will look oh so pretty on my dresser!

Oscar Blandi – Pronto Texture & Volume Spray 1oz

A volumizing hairspray that is light and non-sticky.   Does the job and gives hair great texture

Miracle Skin Transformer – Vanish Instant Imperfection Corrector 3ml

This helped control my shine all day long!  I’m in love!  It has a silky, smooth texture and helped to eliminate my large pore size, but unfortunately just for the day.  Also great for diminishing fine lines and wrinkles….sign me up!

Stila – All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer – Bronze Shimmer 1.5ml 

I thought that this was a great highlighter to use on cheekbones, on the eyes or to mix with face lotion, foundation or a BB cream.  It gives a fresh, dewy look with a subtle radiant glow.  Stila just launched some Colour Lip Balm’s and I am dying to get my hands on them soon!

Chuao Chocolatier – Potato Chip 11g (one chip)

Crisp kettle cooked potato chip with a hint of sea salt in milk chocolate.  100% natural and made with premium Venezuelan cacao.  OK, but nothing I will be running out to buy.

This box on a whole is one of the cheapest at $10.  What I got this month is true to sample size.  No deluxe samples, nothing full size.  However, it’s also nice that these are mostly all premium brands and not something I would find in the drugstore!  Birchbox – keep them coming!
