Birchbox October 2016

MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick in Magnolia (full size 0.12oz/$25; sample value estimate $3) – This lipstick delivers long-lasting, smudge-proof color, with a hydrating, antioxidant-rich formula that does double duty as a lip treatment.  This particular shade, Magnolia, is a medium violet with pink undertones.

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask (full size 1oz/$58; sample value 0.25oz/$14.50) – “The peachy pink cream has a jelly-like texture that feels comfortable and soothing whether you use it as an all-over treatment or on specific areas. Then after application, the 100% natural and non-toxic formula targets excess oil, evens skin tone, and sheds dead cells to give your complexion that coveted lit-from-within glow.”

Hustle Butter Luxe (full size 1oz/$25; sample value estimate $2) – “Originally developed to heal tattoos, this multipurpose cream primes, moisturizes, and heals any skin. What’s more, the rich formula works equally well as facial moisturizer, makeup remover, hand cream, and even as a sunburn healer.”

Madison Reed Nourishing Color-Enhancing Shampoo & Conditioner (full size 8oz/$26 each; sample value 1oz/$3.25 each) – The shampoo “seals color to strands and protects it from shade-altering UV rays.” It also “undoes damage from coloring, styling, and other treatments, so our new hue can truly shine.”  The conditioner “keeps your shade fresh so you can go longer between trips to the salon, and its host of natural nourishers gives color-treated hair the extra attention it needs.”


Total Box Value: ~$26
