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…

Winter Makeup Essentials

It's time to bring out the berry tones and get that festive red lip going. I've brought out the winter makeup and got it all ready for the cold times ahead. It's getting so cold at the moment that it all needs a bit of a change. I've changed up my skincare routine and it's the makeup now to change. It's mainly all drugstore so we can be festive on a budget this Winter.

For base I've been loving going primer free and using the Garnier Rose Water Moisturiser £5.99. I normally put this on straight away when I first do my makeup and allow it a bit of time to set. I'm doing a foundation ban at the moment so I'm sticking to my full coverage concealer for now. I've been mixing between the Stila Perfecting Concealer £15 and the Collection lasting perfection concealer £4.19. The Stila one works best when I really want a bit of coverage without going as far as foundation.

For the highlight I've been switching in between my Colourpop Stole the show $8 and the Barry M highlighter drops £6.99. I have a few more of these in my collection now so that natural highlight is always an option. I like that isn't too heavy and works well on top of concealer. It's been a big thing for me to still have my makeup similar even if I'm changing my main base.

For eyes I've been sticking to my BH cosmetics 88 shade palette £16. The amount of colours work great if I wanna really switch it up each day. I'm on the hunt for a new palette that isn't full of shades I already have so if you've got any recommendations that would be great.

The lips are the main thing I'm switching between, going for those more red and berry shades now that it's got colder. To see exactly what I'm reaching for checkout my blogpost here talking all about what's on my lips at the moment. Because my skin is more sensitive around Winter i'm not a fan of making too many changes so it's all about sticking to the products I know and love.

After Christmas i want to have a makeup detox, look at the products I've got and really sort through them. I want the same results with less products, having to carry round so much is becoming a bit of too much so it's time to stick to the holy grails in my makeup bag. Comment down below what your makeup holy grails are and let me know what you've been sticking to through these colder months.

Until next time, Chloe!
