Birchbox February 2013

Hello Gorgeous!
Birchbox much like Ipsy had the same theme this month which is Red Carpet Ready. What a coincidence right? Well anyways lets jump into what was included in my box this month:

- Ojon Volume Advance Thickening Spray (Size: 1.8 fl oz)
All of the volume advance products are packed with protein-rich Peruvian amaranth, which helps seal cuticles (the scales that compose the outermost layer of each strand of hair) and adds body and flexibility. The spray also contains the lipid-rich ojon oil from the rainforests of Central America, known as “nature’s golden elixir” for its restorative properties. Taken together, these ingredients, along with ginseng, soy, and wheat protein, nourish and fortify hair, buffering it against damage from heat styling. Finally, bergamot, lavender, and tonka bean essential oils lend a refreshing herbal scent.

- Color Club Fiesta Collection in Mamba (Size: 7 ml)
Color Club is known for its rock-solid polish formula, and this latest collection doesn’t disappoint. The creamy formula dries to a glass-like finish in two coats and won’t peel or bubble—two of our polish pet peeves. Color Club shades are free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP, so you can breathe a little easier. Mamba is a sheeny red color shade.

- Juicy Couture La La Parfume Spray (Size: 1.5 ml)
Bright and zesty mandarin, crisp green apple, and tart red currant notes open up the fragrance, while soft lily of the valley and orange blossom lend it a hint of chic femininity.

- Ghirardelli Milk & Caramel Squares (Size: One Square)
Ghirardelli uses a proprietary blend of cocoa beans, an intense nib roasting process, and an extra-thorough refining process to help ensure the smooth consistency and rich flavor of the chocolate.

- Twistband headband Collection (Size: One Headband)
Skinny and stylish, each band is made of super-soft elastic that won’t leave a crease behind or induce a dreaded headband headache. They’re especially great for those growing out their bangs.

Until next time, take care <3

Square Hue February 2013

Hello Gorgeous!
Hope you dolls had a wonderful Valentines Day! Square Hue's theme for this month is The Vintage Love Collection. Square Hue is a nail polish subscription service where the company sends three full size nail polishes of .50 oz to keep. Each month the colors sent will be colors that are in style and up to date with today's fashion. The nail polish are 3-free clean formula - does not contain DBP, Formaldehyde, and Toluene and are not tested on animals. This is a monthly subscription service with the price of $21 each month this includes free shipping. So lets jump into the polishes that were sent this month.

- High School Crush
This is a creme light pink shade. When applied it does apply on the sheer side but of course if it is layered it can be buildable. I personally thing its a lovely color and a staple in any nail polish enthusiast collector's stash.  

- Wartime Romance
When I first heard the name of this month's collection this is the kind of shade that I pictured being sent out. It is a gorgeous vintage dusty rose creme shade.

- Dear John
This is a stunning deep maroon / burgundy shade. This polish does have a nice shine to it. I really enjoy this shade because when applied it looks like just like a deep shade of maroon but when the light hits it that's when these specks come out that make this a very unique polish to have. 

This is yet again another great month with Square Hue! This company really knows what they are doing and definitely knows how to treat their customers. Cant wait to see what the month of March holds.

Until next time, take care <3
