Birchbox 3 Months On

Subscription boxes are a weird niche, they're a nice little pick me up each month tailored to you. For me, I've always wanted to try these and for the past three months, I've been subscribed to Birchbox. Each month I've received a bunch of products and I've given my verdict on them. I thought I would review the whole service after three months of purchasing and share my loves from the boxes and the ones you could definitely miss out on. 

The boxes overall have been good, there hasn't been any in which I haven't been disappointed. The service offers boxes tailored to you, after filling out a quick questionnaire it helps to tailor the products to you. What I've found throughout the boxes is it's normally 1 or 2 products that you will receive that might be different to what other people receive.

Revlon Colourstay Foundation - Review

Hello everyone 

This week I will be reviewing a foundation that has been a popular favorite of people's from the drugstore it is the Revlon Colourstay foundation. I decided to try this as I heard so many people rave about this foundation so I decided to test it out for myself.

I bought the foundation for oily and combination skin as my skin currently is oily and can be dry at times. The foundation has a medium coverage but can be built up, it also has added shine targted to control oily skin. 

I have currently have a lot of spots they are mainly minor but can be covered with foundation, for a foundation with medium coverage this was pretty bad at covering my spots. It covered them but still managed to draw attention to them. 

The foundation does help to reduce shine but the main problem I have with this is how quick it dries, within seconds the foundation is dry meaning you have to apply and blend very quickly otherwise the foundation can look cakey. 

The foundation claims to be 24 hour in my opinion it lasts for about 6 hours and then it goes cakey and does not look good at all. For me this doesn't sit right on the skin it looks out of place and does not sink into my skin and give a natural finish. 

Overall I was not impressed with this foundation and to be honest I was pretty disappointed in the foundation. Next Wednesday I will be reviewing a concealer by Seventeen. 

Thanks for reading!
