Birchbox x Cynthia Rowley

I just got this amazing box of goodies in the mail from Birchbox!  I entered to win last month and finally it arrived.  The box has the complete Cynthia Rowley beauty Spring collection!

The box it came in was gold and so pretty.

On to the items!
The chocolate bar was really good if not a bit melted from transit.

The bar is from CuRious Candy.  The packaging is so pretty and it makes me want to try more!

This is a handy glasses screwdriver!

I got the black pair of the No. 58 design.

The sunnies have a lime green stripe and the inside is tortoise.  I am absolutely in love with these sunglasses and I am so happy with the pair that I received!

I received both colors of the liquid liner.

The packaging on this whole collection is so cute!

These liquid liners are amazing.  They are so smooth and go on very easily, no tugging!

They are very pigmented as you can see here and I am so happy I have the brown one as it looks nice for more casual days.

The liner tip goes from thick to very thin to get the perfect line.

The box included the No.2 Eye shadow Palette.

All of the shadows are very creamy and go on smoothly and blend in very nicely.  They are all nicely pigmented, but the colors definitely show stronger with primer underneath them.

All of the pencil liners and lip stains came in this pretty makeup bag.

All five shades of the pencil liners were included in the box.  The liners are so creamy and go on without tugging.  The pigmentation is incredible and they are absolutely beautiful shades.

From Left to Right: Sky Blue, Violet, Silver, Charcoal, and Black.

The box also contained all three creamy lip stains.

The are so comfortable on the lips and the color is long lasting.  Valentine is my favorite so far, but I am loving trying different combinations of the three for custom lip shades.

From Left to Right: Sugar, Valentine, and Tulip.

A massive Thank you to Birchbox and Cynthia Rowley for this amazing box and collection.  I am so happy that I won and cannot wait to play around more!
