Beauty boxes and scarf pins

I'm a little late posting my December's Birchbox, but here it is. Not a great selection of products for me. The only one I really liked and use is the Mirenesse iCurl mascara. This is a NICE mascara! It should be, considering the cost of $29.00! It has a unique curved brush;narrower at one end, and fits the eye fully for a great application. The mascara itself does give some curl and separates the lashes. (I'll have to wait for a sale on this one!) I ended up trading the Davines hair replumping treatment and shampoo and conditioner sample. If you know me, and you know my hair, I definitely do not need any plumping!
Next up, my January Julep Maven box.
A good selection of products this month from Julep. Two polishes- first "Casey" a teal, bluish-green cream, and metamorphic top coat, "Bjork". As you can see how the teal transforms when using the iridescent top coat. (Excuse my shaky hand, please)
Next came a gel eye glider pencil in olive, and Julep's new "luxe lip" conditioning treatment for lips. The shade is sheer coral.
The eye pencils are completely smudge proof. I love their formula. Immediately after applying, the liner will not budge! Unfortunately, I did not like the Luxe lip product. It's nothing special. I only swatched it on my hand and then put that on my lips, but I feel like there is nothing special about the product. No fragrance-I was hoping for a mint, or candy scent. Very sheer, almost transparent. A little sticky. I didn't give it much chance, but I know what I like. I will probably trade this one too.
And now, a quick look at some new fashion accessory scarf pins I've created and are now available in my Etsy shop.
