Now, onto the items!

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0038

Draper James makeup pouch – Value $20?

(I’m estimating value since this is an exclusive item available only in the box.)

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0037

It’s a good size (larger than your standard ipsy bag), and the material is waterproof so it’s great for wiping up any makeup spills.

The inside is lined, too.

Draper James trinket tray (Exclusive) – Value $18

(Price from a similar tray.)

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0025

This ceramic tray has a gold accent, and enough depth to make it a good catchall for rings and other small jewelry items:

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0026

It measures 3 by 3 inches.

Grab & Go Pony Tube – Value $12

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0035

I love this hair tie tube! It’s my second set from this brand, and I can confirm that they are great. No hair damage!

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0036

Super wearable colors for me, too.

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0030

Lipstick Queen Eden Lipstick – FULL SIZE! Value $28

I wasn’t expecting this, but there is a little sparkle in this lipstick formula:

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0032

It has a semi-sheer, semi-matte finish, so you can dial it back if this is too bold a red for you. Here it is swatched:

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0033

(Fortunately for me, the sparkle isn’t too noticeable when on.)

Smashbox Indecent Exposure Mascara – FULL SIZE! Value $23

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0029

This is my favorite mascara discovery this past month! The formula gave my lashes excellent length, and the lash separation was excellent, too. I was able to apply multiple layers with zero clumping.

(And the wand base is flocked! It feels like velvet!)

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0022

Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer – 7.5 ml (Mini) Value $12

This primer is a classic I’ve sampled many times before. The formula feels super smooth on my skin and does a great job of temporarily filling in pores so that they look invisible.

(And I was excited to see that this is over double the size of the regular Benefit POREfessional sample!)

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0020

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner – 8 ml Value $3.40

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0021

Sunday Riley is a luxe beauty brand that doesn’t show up in subscription boxes often, so I was excited to try this. It’s a toner gel that’s designed to absorb oil (shine), and minimize the appearance of pores.

Unfortunately for me, this didn’t really mattify my skin. I couldn’t notice a difference in shine after using it. (It looks like the reviews on this product are mixed, too. So, it may work for you, but it didn’t work for me!)

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0014

Living proof. Restore Instant Protection Spray – 60 ml Value $17

I’ve been using my beachwaver a lot lately, so I’m in need of this product! It provides a fine mist for heat protection for your hair. You can apply it on damp or dry hair, and also reapply to dry hair for SPF protection. The scent is lovely and subtle, and it added no weight to my hair.

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0012

Bioderma Sensibio H2O – 100 ml Value $4.40

This makeup remover is fragrance-free, and feels like water on your skin – it’s super gentle. It also does a great job of removing makeup! The spout is a perfect size for q-tips, too, if you need some precision removal.

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0010

Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Black Charcoal Sheet – Value $7.50

This is the first charcoal sheet mask I’ve tried, and to be honest, I couldn’t tell a difference from this and most other sheet masks! It did leave my skin feeling super hydrated, though!

And lastly, don’t forget to add your free mystery sample pack to any Birchbox order of $35 or more!

Here are the two samples I received:

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0018

Whish Shave Cream

Birchbox-Limited-Edition-Draper-James-April-2017-0008

L’Oreal Mythic Oil

(I won’t count these toward the value of the box since the samples vary.)

Verdict: This box has a value of about $145! I think that’s a pretty good value for a $58 box. (And even better with the 10% off HELLO coupon code – making this box about $52.) Almost every item is a hit for me, too. (I really love that mascara!)

  1. What about the ouai treatment mask?

  2. Liz, I have to ask- is the beach waver worth it? And is it easy to use?

    • This is what I came here to ask too 🙂 My hair doesn’t usually hold a curl too well but reviews on Amazon say this works for people with similar hair. Really? Im always a little skeptical.

      • My hair is a few inches past my shoulders, thick and dry (I am Hispanic) and I use the beachwaver. The problem I find is that even the 1.25 barrel isn’t big enough for me. I use it and have good results, but it does take a while because of the narrow barrel. It does take a bit to get used to but it does work well and I’m pleased with my purchase. My daughter has hair more like Liz’s in terms of length and is more fine. Her hair is a breeze to use on. It depends on the type of hair you have. Also, if you spray your hair well enough the curls last the next day. I don’t fluff them, I curl, spray, and let them fall naturally.

      • If you haven’t tried curling your hair with a hair straightener I would suggest trying that first! I have fine hair that doesn’t hold any kind of curl/wave and when I use a straightener to curl it will hold even w/o hair spray. YouTube has great tutorials on how to do it.

        • That’s the same for me! It only works with a flat iron

    • It’s pricey, but I pretty much use it every day, so it’s been worth it to me. It took a few tries to get the hang of it, but it is super easy to use. (I am hair styling challenged, so I feel comfortable saying if I can do it, anyone can do it!)

      I have the BEACHWAVER® S1.25 ($129.) I used it on my hair in the pictures in this review: http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/2016/12/pusheen-box-winter-2016-subscription-box-review.html

      I’d recommend going with the S series and not the (more expensive) Pro series if you’re considering it. The S Series works fine for me!

      Hope that helps a bit!

  3. The box itself is really pretty!

  4. I also got the mythic LOreal in my free sample with purchase, and I was surprised to see such a low end brand.

    • I have gotten it with every single one of my last 4 purchases from Birchbox and the last order included this and another foil, no deluxe sample. Come on Birchbox!

      • Hahha just read this. I feel you!

    • Ive got this shaving cream and mythic sample in my last FOUR gifts with purchase. (I dont use a rasor and dont enjoy receiving low end brands aside from my my target and walmart boxes)
