Birchbox October 2014 Unboxing

As soon as I saw some sneak peeks for Birchbox this month, I started holding my breath.  Some lucky Birchboxers received a Beauty Blender.  Alas, I was not one of the lucky ones to receive that egg-shaped beauty tool, but I am thoroughly enjoying all the products I did receive in my October 2014 Birchbox.

This month’s theme was “Fanfare” and, as described by Birchbox, the products included were supposed to be based around the excitement of the fall TV blockbuster season.

Here is my Birchbox October 2014 Unboxing

The Products I Received

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream || Full Size $38 || Birchbox Sample Value of $15.20

I have not yet tried this as I want to finish up another sample eye cream first, but just rubbing it on the back of my hand, it feels really nice and I am really excited to try it out {I love me some eye cream}.

Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle || Full Size $21.95 || Approx. Birchbox Sample Value of $2.74

Smells good and did a good job as a leave-in conditioner.  I have so many leave-in conditioning sprays right now to use up, so I do not see myself buying the full size of this product simply for that reason.  Once I run out of leave-in conditioning sprays {if that ever happens}, because of how much I liked the smell, this one would be at the top of my list to repurchase!

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Eyeshadow Palette Set || Full Size $34 || Approx. Birchbox Sample Value of $3.99

I love Coastal Scents eye shadows.  I have received some others in the past with other subscription boxes and really enjoy the quality and the colors included with this Birchbox are just to die for.  Simply gorgeous!  Plus, you cannot beat the price of Coastal Scents eye shadows.  The price of the entire Revealed 2 palette, the set without the brushes, is $19.99 and I may just be using my Birchbox points to purchase that bad boy.

dr. brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner || Full Size $45 || Birchbox Sample Value of $11.25

I have used this a couple of times now {I probably have one, maybe two uses left in this deluxe sample}.  I really like how it works!  I will definitely consider purchasing the full size once I run out.

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Kitty || Full Size $24 || Birchbox included full size!!

This item was the “sample” I chose to receive this month {Birchbox has been allowing you to choose one sample until it is “sold out”…if your desired sample is sold out you will just receive one of the other sample options}.  Turns out this “sample”  was a full sized product.  Score!  I love lippies!!  The lipstick went on really smooth and creamy and I really do like the color.  I would certainly consider purchasing the other colors in this brand.

    I got the exact same box and I LOVE it. The lipstick, eyeshadow, and beauty protector spray are my favorite right now.

      Each time I used the items, I love them even more. I am pretty sure I am going to buy the Revealed 2 eye shadow palette simply because of how much I love the little sample swatches I got!

    This box had some real goodies. And even though they are samples, itt looks like the samples will last a while too.
