I really enjoyed this sample of Read My Lips Lip Gloss by the Balm. Though, it was really small. Only wore a total of 4-5 times before the gloss became vinegary. A major reason for this was likely storage in my purse and the fact that the tub was the size of my pinky toe.
Nevertheless, the balm was a great color. I tried the rose "bam" color which was great for my olive skin tone. The consistency was top-notch and went over well over base lip shades or did well all on its own.
If I were to buy this lip gloss brand, I'd like try the red next but overall, the brand is pretty expensive. $15 for a regular size tube and it's not like it was anything better than what you could get from nice brands at the drug store.
All in all, I'd recommend getting a sample and trying it out but not sure that I will ever buy it myself. Though I got it in a gift set from Birchbox, I'd be excited about it.
The Beauty Protector Spray - Protect and Detangle has so much potential and once you get it out of the bottle, it's actually a pretty great product. Unfortunately, my bottle doesn't spray well. I have to unscrew the top and work into my hair with my hands in order to get an even amount. I received this product in my October Birchbox.
The spray itself goes on with a great fragrance and made my hair super soft and fluffy after blow drying. I have short wavy hair so I feel like this product really complements my natural volume and takes away the frizz, too.
I probably won't buy this product right away but I may try a few of their other hair products. My only complaint was the spray bottle itself - poor packaging.
This perfume had SO much potential! The Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold smells incredible - truly. I was really pumped that I some how got two samples tucked into my Birchbox.
Unfortunately, the fragrance is incredible but it just doesn't last very long. I am not big _on spraying my clothes with perfumes - I prefer to use them on my wrists and neck but the only way I could make this scent linger was putting it directly on my clothes.
I am not a particularly active worker - I don't have a sweaty job and I sit at a desk for most of the day so the fact that by noon you couldn't even tell I was wearing anything kind of peeved me. The price for this perfume is pretty pricey to have to constantly re-apply. Bummer.
