Birchbox Exclusive Cynthia Rowley Beauty Collection No. 2


I had some birchbox points just sitting on my account screaming to be used so I decided to give this Cynthia Rowley collection a try.

“If the confetti design didn’t tip you off, Cynthia Rowley’s Eye Shadow Palette – No. 2 is ready for a good time. Help yourself to five candy-inspired shades: Cotton Candy, a soft lavender; Licorice, a shimmery charcoal; Cloud, a velvety taupe; Marshmallow, a versatile cream; and Confetti, a pastel pink speckled with purple and cream. The sleek palette has a magnetic closure and a built-in mirror for easy application. Equal parts playful and polished, the Mini Creamy Lip Stain in Valentine offers the moisture and shine of a gloss, paired with the ultralong wear of a stain. Not to be outdone, the Mini Eyeliner in Black goes on velvety-smooth for smudge-proof, all-day wear. Store all three products in the Neoprene Confetti Bag made from Cynthia Rowley’s signature wetsuit fabric. In short, this collection is a match made in product heaven.”


The eye shadows are soft and blend very easily. But because they are soft they do need a light hand.  I have used the Lip Stain and the Eyeliner before as they have come in my birchbox sample box before.  I like them both as they have staying power and the eyeliner does not move!

June 2014 Birchbox ” Away We Go”

It’s birchbox time ladies!  This month’s theme is “Away We Go” which makes sense since summer is the time for vacations.  It also showcases Birchbox’s new partnership with JetBlue.  They have created amenity kits for the airlines Mint Experience.  You can read all about that here.  Now, onto what is in the fabulous pink box!

Cynthia Rowley Creamy Lip Stain in “Valentine”

YAY!  I have eyeliners and eyeshadows from Cynthia Rowley so I am excited to try this lip stain. And come on look at this little lip stain, it’s the cutest thing!  “Valentine” is a pink coral and it has a great texture. Glides on smooth and is super creamy, but not sticky.  After I rubbed the swatch off my arm, there was a ‘stain’ of pink so this for sure is lip stain.

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream

This is one of products that you hear a lot about and has ‘Holy Grail’ status for many people.  This little size is perfect for traveling and I’m leaving for vacation soon so I will be sure to take this along and see what the big deal is.  According to the Birchbox card this is an all-natural all-purpose slave.  It can be used to moisturize, fight wrinkles and bread burns and bruises. I plan on using it as a lip salve.

Harvey Prince Perfume “Hello”

I think the last two or three fragrance samples I’ve received in my birchbox have been from Harvey Prince.  When I first sprayed this on I got a strong scent of rubbing alcohol, yuck!  After a few seconds that smell dissipated and I got a lovely citrus and floral scent.  According to the handy card this fragrance has notes of Meyer Lemon, Mandarin Grapefruit, Forsythia and Plumeria.  I like this one, good choice Birchbox.

Lierac Paris Micellar Cleansing Water

This is a new brand to me so I’m excited to try it.  I am a fan of cleansing water and this one has a fresh clean scent.  I plan on putting it to work tonight.

Mally Beauty Volumizing Mascara

Yes!! Another brand that I’ve been dying to try!  I love me some mascara (I have been known to call myself a mascara whore as I cannot be faithful to one…) Look for a review to come soon! Also props to Birchbox, I’m excited to get a full size item in my box.
