Now on to the items!
Mellow Matte Liquid Lip Paint in Tehran – .05 oz? Value $7?
The sample size is bigger than the full-size amount listed on the Birchbox site (.01 oz). I’m assuming the size listed on the Birchbox site is wrong, and that this size is about half the size of the full-size version.
The color is a warm brown, with good pigment. It dries matte, and has decent staying power. It’s a good liquid lip, but not one of my favorites. Here is the color swatched:
Davroe Ends Repair – 50 ml Value $10
This is a great sized sample and a new-to-me brand! Good job, Birchbox! This leave-in treatment smells lovely, didn’t weigh down my hair, and is ingredient conscious. I’m a fan! It also helped give a little moisture back to my hair and manage frizz.
Davines SU Hair & Body Wash – 75 ml Value $7.20
I’ve sampled this before, and it’s as luxe as it looks. The scent is fresh and slightly powdery, and I love a multi-use product for summer travel!
Murad Oil-Control Mattifier SPF 15 – 10 ml Value $7.75
This is a perfect summer product for me. It kept my face less oily than my regular primer, and I get the added bonus of SPF.
Benefit Roller Lash – .1 oz Value $8
I’ve already sampled this mascara from Benefit and I’m a fan. I’m able to build a lot of volume and length without any clumping on the lashes. It’s my go-to backup mascara if I’m out of Tarte! 🙂
Verdict: This box has a value of about $40 – that’s good for a $10 beauty box. In most cases, the curated box has a good value, so I recommend always picking it if that’s a priority for you. What do you think of the May
This is one of the best curated boxes I’ve seen from Birchbox in a while. Every single item is a multiple-use sample, and the value is great, too.
What do you think of the June Birchbox? Did you pick a curated box or a sample?
