Blogmas Day 16 | Birchbox December 2016

Hello and welcome to day 16 of Blogmas. We're now into a single figure countdown to Christmas and I'm getting more and more excited just thinking about it! 
Today's post is going to be an unboxing and my thoughts on this month's Birchbox so let's get straight into it.

Firstly, can we just talk about how cute this box is?! It's their cutest design yet, and I'll definitely be using this for storage! Included in every box is a little booklet to tell you what you've received and this month there's also a gift envelope if you decide to give someone the gift of a subscription for Christmas.

The first item I pulled out of the box is a pack of Starskin Eye Catcher masks. These are for the under eye area and are designed to reduce puffiness and smooth out the skin. They're infused with coconut juice and licorice root extract to help brighten under your eyes. I will definitely be using these because I suffer from the worst eye bags ever!

Up next is something I am super excited about and that is Benefit Porefessional Matte Rescue. This product has been raved about so much ever since Benefit released their new range of Porefessional products. It's a clear mattifying gel, which is perfect for me since I have quite oily skin. It's designed to mattify the skin and leave it looking poreless.

The next product is one that I have wanted for so long and it's the Fierce Flicks Eyeliner from Ciaté. This has been on my makeup wishlist for as long as I can remember! It's a felt tip liner and it's super black, like the blackest liner you will probably ever find! It's perfect for winged liner 'cause the tip is really thin too!

I've never been one to use any sort of masks or fancy products on my hair so when I saw this Percy & Reed Wonder Balm, I was slightly sceptical. I'm one of those girls that just uses shampoo and conditioner, purely because my hair isn't in a really bad condition and because I'm just too lazy to faff about. This is a leave-in treatment balm which preps your hair for any styling products you might throw at it (not literally I hope)

The last item is one that enticed me quite a little and it's an Eyelighter by Laqa & Co. I assume by the name it's a highlighter designed mainly for your brow bone and inner corner of your eye but I guess you could use it anywhere. All the highlighters in my collection are powder so it'll be nice to try out this stick. The shade is a really lovely pink champagne colour, it has a really creamy texture and blends so well!

So that's everything in this month's Birchbox! I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts, if you'd like to subscribe click here.
