Shine bright like a diamond! Birchbox February 2016



I'm gonna get right to it - this months box is uh-may-zing. I'd held off looking at the spoilers for this months box because I always end up getting excited and then end up being disappointed, but this month, I got everything I could have ever asked for.

This months theme was 'Shine bright like a diamond' because some lucky bugger had a diamond necklace worth £200 in their box (sadly this wasn't me) but the excitement of what I received in this months box definitely gave me a twinkle in my eye.

Here's what I got in this months box:


Spectrum Tapered Powder Brush 
LOC Shadow Stick in Champagne
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum 
Ayres Body Butter in Patagonia
the Balm Cosmetics Frat Boy Blush & Shadow

2 Full size products this month, wow! I love it when you get a good mix of skincare and beauty, as well as some hyped up brands to try out!

I couldn't wait to try some of these products out and some have already made it into my daily routine.

The product I was most excited to try had to be the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster. I'm really into skincare at the moment and I've seen loads about this brand floating around the web. I'm using it daily and already seeing a difference - keep your eyes peeled for a full review.

I've also had my eyes on the Balm Frat Boy blush for some time, so was super excited when this cute mini dropped through my door. It's super pigmented and adds a gorgeous coraly glow to the cheeks! Not sure about it as an eyeshadow, but you never know!

The Spectrum tapered powder brush is what I've been using to apply the blush to the apples of my cheeks - wow this brush is smooth! With the bristles being so brightly coloured I was expecting them to be quite plasticy feeling but boy was I wrong. It's really well priced too for the quality. Definitely going to be picking some more of these up!

I haven't got round to trying the LOC Shadow Stick yet but this isn't a colour I currently have in my collection, so it's a very welcome addition. The Ayres body butter is nice - but I think I'll stick to my body shop body butter for now!

I've been thinking of cancelling Birchbox for a while now and heading over to the Cohorted Beauty Box, but I think I'll give Birchbox another month or two after this little beauty.

What did you think about this months box?
