August Birchbox: Birchbox X Etsy

Whilst I was away last week, my Birchbox arrived and I could not wait to open it up once I got home. This month, Birchbox has collaborated with ten Etsy sellers, who have each created their own box design. I was given this gorgeous box designed by Holly Maguire, I am a huge cat-lover, and thought that this was a perfect choice for me! This month, I have been given a great selection of products, all of which I can really see myself using up. Let's take a peak into what I received in this month's box!

This creamy eyeshadow crayon is a true multitasker – perfect for quick or on-the-go looks! The easy to apply formula can be used alone as a glimmering shadow, as a crease-proof base, or as a highlighter for a radiant glow.
This was the make-up product where we got to choose which shade we wanted. This time, I decided to choose the 'Surprise Me' option. I ended up with the shade Fetch, which is a beautiful light pink, with gold duo-chrome, so you end up with a gorgeous rose gold. I have been recently been trying more one eyeshadow looks, and I think these will be a nice option to have. 

This innovative lip product transforms as you wear it. Applied as a powder, it melts into a long-wearing tint with a matte finish. Waterproof, smudge-proof and enriched with Vitamin E, luscious lips have never been so easy!
Now when I opened up my box this month, and saw this, I have to admit I was a little puzzled. A powder lipstick? I am a massive fan of liquid lipsticks, so how will the complete opposite formula compare? I am interested to try this - might have to try this out when I am not wearing a white outfit!

Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Regenerated Sleeping Mask
We love it when a product does all the hard work for us - bonus points if it works overnight! Antioxidant-rich pomegranate nourishes thirsty, dull skin while you sleep - so you can wake up glowy and hydrated. Easy peasy!
I love a face mask, although this one will prove to be interesting. This is a overnight mask, now I am a tummy/side sleeper, so I don't want to end up spreading this mask all over my pillow. I might try and wear this during the day, say on the weekend instead. However it is packed with skin loving ingredients and should hopefully pump lots of moisture into my skin.

Luseta Beauty Keratin Smooth Conditioner
Don’t let frizz and flyaways leave you feeling frazzled! This luxuriously nourishing conditioner is formulated to tame your wild mane. Strengthening strands from the inside out, it locks in moisture while boosting elasticity.
I am always up for trying new hair products, especially if they are targeted towards hydration, nourishment and dealing with frizz. I have tried a few Luseta hair care products before in my Birchboxes, and have enjoyed using them so I am looking forward to giving this a go. As I have such thick hair, this might not last very long!

Rituals Happy Buddha Foaming Shower Gel
When we hop into the shower first thing in the morning or after an especially tough spin class, we just want to relax - even working up our body wash into a lather sounds like a lot of work. Fortunately, this foaming gel from Rituals does the work for us: It turns into a luxurious foam when it comes into contact with water. All we have to do is smooth it on for a skin-softening clean.
This made me laugh when I opened this up. When I was in Spain, I noticed a large issue of Spanish Glamour being sold, with a full-size of this particular shower gel. So I thought it was very funny to receive a miniature version in my box! I love foaming shower gels - but I will be saving this for the next time I go away!

So that is what was in my August Birchbox! Please check out Holly's Etsy Store, she has a lot more gorgeous prints! As always, if you have tried any of these products, let me know your thoughts in the comments!
