Birch box | February


February is all about shinning like a diamond, Birch box have launched their new beauty line, love of Color (LOC) which features in this months box. We had the pleasure of choosing from two beautiful coloured one and done shadow stick. The colours were the champagne problems, a shimmering silver shade and the perfect cents, a shining gold shade. Both are beautiful but I went for perfect cents as I love a smokey eye look and this will add that perfect gold shimmer to my smokey eye look. 

As well as the full sized LOC product Birch box treated us to a pretty mermaid coloured full size makeup brush, perfect for applying powder. Just having this out on your makeup desk will brighten it up and the soft bristles will feel lovely in the skin.

HOW | Just wipe over the eye area until makeup is removed - simple! 

I love the makeup brush, LOC shadow stick and the hand and body lotion. However the other products weren't that great for me, I feel like the collagen booster would be great for older ladies as it smooths out lines but I don't have any lines to smooth out. The blush is a lovely colour but the sample  is so small it is hard to get a good amount on a brush to properly sample. I'm sure lots of you would love the makeup wipes, but I just don't use them I don't feel like they do enough for me, I like to use the Liz earl cleanse and polish to remove my makeup but I will keep for when I travel somewhere as it is very handy. 

All in all I still really liked this months box as I feel the two full sized products make up for the other products. 

Do you get a monthly birch box? If so what did you get and what did you think to the products?

  1. I don't get a monthly one, but I bought one from their stand in Selfridges in London. I think it's a great way to test high quality products!
