April Birchbox | Product Review

I don’t know if I should love or hate Birchbox. There are some awesome winners they send me (the love part), but then I want to buy everything (the hate part). This month had some definite wins! If you haven’t had a chance to check out Birchbox, check it out here!

Color Club® | Gala’s Gems Collection – Heirloom Pearls
Most fashion bloggers report on trends, but Gala Gonzalez is shaping them—starting from the hands up. This spring, the Spanish-born blogger, stylist, and DJ teamed up with Color Club to launch this four-piece nail polish collection. Perfect for spring, these pastel hues are inspired by the retro lacquers of the 70s and 80s, complete with a luxe pearl finish. Paired with on-trend, opaque color, the results are both modern and sleek. $13.00 Set of 4
Five Points to Ponder:

  • Four nail polishes for that price? How could you say no?
  • It’s spring and these are the perfect colors for it!
  • It doesn’t take more than my normal amount of coats. If I need to add more than the norm, I might stress out. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
  • The coats go on so smooth, a friend thought I had got my nails done. The credit goes completely to the polish and not my ability to paint my nails (because it can be embarrassing).
  • The one thing that sealed the deal? It didn’t come off after I went swimming! Usually I have to repaint my nails because it starts to chip after a couple of laps. This is a major win for me!

Verdict: Oui! | Je Ne Sais Pas | Non

Harvey Prince | Yogini
Take a deep breath and relax with this sophisticated scent, which helps us tap into our inner New Age gurus. Harvey Prince designed the mood-elevating blend of exotic essences and oils to counteract stress and keep us zen throughout the day. It’s the fragrance equivalent of yoga class. $55.00 Full Size
Five Points to Ponder:

  • Maybe since I don’t do yoga, I wasn’t able to connect with this guy.
  • I’m more of a Chanel kind of gal and I feel this scent is a complete 180 from what I like in a perfume
  • It’s not too strong though
  • Just not my cup of tea
  • I’ll stick with my Chanel Chance

Verdict: Oui! | Je Ne Sais Pas | Non

Number 4 Hair Care | Clarifying Shampoo
At the end of a long day we could all use a fresh start—the same goes for our hair. When product buildup and styling stress leave your locks feeling dull, use Number 4™ Clarifying Shampoo, subtly scented with white freesia, golden amber, and warm musk, to gently cleanse without stripping moisture or color. $32.00 Full Size

Five Points to Ponder:

  • The price is a little too high for me. My hair is way too short to be spending this kind of cash on shampoo. I chop it off before it has a chance of needing restoration.
  • But man oh man, did this make my hair feel nice and soft.
  • They included a conditioner sampler and the tag team of both of them is fabulous.
  • I started swimming this year (my knees hate me from years of running) and with all the chlorine – this did make a noticeable difference.
  • It smells nice too.

Verdict: Oui! | Je Ne Sais Pas | Non

Sumita | Color Contrast Eyeliner
The makeup experts at Sumita have created a versatile eyeliner that exceeds all our tough standards: sensational blending abilities, bold colors, and non-irritating formulas. The soft wax formula goes on smooth to create clean lines or can be smudged to smoky perfection. Plus, the long-lasting liner will hold up all day and night. $11.00 Full Size

Five Points to Ponder:

  • I love love loved this!
  • It goes on smooth (which can’t be said for all pencil eyeliners)
  • This is perfect to carry in your purse, in case you need a quick touch up.
  • They come in all kinds of colors. I like the plum (I’m not big on bright colored eyeliner), but if you like to switch things up then you’re in luck, because: All the colors!!
  • The price is right on these, so to this I say yes!

Verdict: Oui! | Je Ne Sais Pas | Non
