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…

The Red Lip Love

It's about time I mentioned a red lip for the first time in absolute ages. Red lipstick is a signature I always in my life. I wear them a lot actually even though you probably wouldn't have any clue as I don't normally document it each time. I have got a pretty good collection now but there's one that really sticks out for me. I got a miniature YSL lipstick when I got the Black Opium perfume. I was so excited and it's my first designer lipstick so there's sentimental value to this beauty.

First off that packaging though, it has the high end feel to it which I am fully fine with this one. The fact that it's a miniature means it's even cuter. Like come on it's tiny lipstick how could I not find this cute. Because of how tiny it is it fits in my little bags perfect so come on there's already a love affair here.

Colour wise this is a real pop art red. Which come on am I ever gonna hate, it has a matte finish but there is a slight hint of shine. For me this gets the balance right and allows me to get the colour I want without it sliding all around my face. If you've read my blog for long enough you'll know that I hate anything glossy with an absolute passion so it's refreshing to see this has a matte finish to it.

Payoff wise the colour is there within seconds. It doesn't require 400 applications to get a streak free pay-off. It does everything I need it to do and more. I forgot about my love for bright red lipstick til I got this. It doesn't lie when it says it's a true red colour it isn't lying.

Lasting power on this is really good, it stays on all day and holds up well with food and drink. It does leave the red stain on a hot chocolate but who would exactly complain about that. For the price this is definitely worth it. I wouldn't go out my way buying the whole collection but I love having this as a sentimental piece. 

Let me know down below if you've tried any of the Ysl's lipsticks. They're a first for me but i'm definitely hooked.
