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. This means there isn't that much personalisation around the box and what you get. 

However, I feel like the products in there, for the most part, are tailore…

That Rainbow Glow You Need To Get On Board With

The holographic and rainbow trend has been taking the world by storm. The over the top out of this world highlights have graced our screens and finally there's been a collaboration between the two. As someone who is desperate for a strong and out there highlight I had to get on board with the rainbow trend. 

I was scrolling through Instagram and came across the Makeup Revolution Rainbow Highlighter £4. It kind of explains itself but it's a shimmer highlight that is meant to reflect the colours of the rainbow. It isn't too bright with the colours which helps to hold the shimmer.

It's mainly blue toned which normally I don't actually mind. My most used highlights are champagne toned that compliment my skin more as they add a nice warm glow to the skin. But the blue highlight has a bit of an ice tinge to my skin that really makes the highlight blinding. 

I've been applying this using a highlight brush to really buff it into the skin. Normally I only have to use one layer as that does the job great. I find that it starts to look a little bit like metal if I use too much as it's bunching on my skin.

I can congratulate this highlight massively for it's stay power. This stays on my face all day no matter what makeup or primer I am wearing. It doesn't add any texture to my skin which is a big thing for me when I want a highlighter because my acne has left my skin with a lot of texture. My one tip with this is to be careful what you set on top of this. I found that if I use a loose translucent powder with a lot of talc in this that it caused a lot of flashback so make sure if you are going to set the highlight that you don't go too crazy with the powder. 

The rainbow idea doesn't really stick however, because the design is meant to be a proper rainbow the brush catches more of the white and blue rather than the rest of the colours in the pan. It is a pretty highlight and not like something I have already in my collection but it doesn't really have that rainbow look to it. 

This is the second highlighter I have used from Makeup Revolution and I am really impressed. It works great and lasts all day on my skin. Even though this rainbow highlight is just a trend I am happy to stick with this glow for a long time. 

Let me know down below the highlighters you are loving at the moment and how you're getting on with this rainbow trend. There will be a bloglovin post on Friday and a new blog post every Sunday and Wednesday.
