Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner
Birchbox says: Inspired by traditional Indian formulas, this velvety liner glides on easily and lasts for hours.
My review: I do not wear eyeliner so I'm going to give this one away using the gift box they included.
Isaac Mizrahi FABULOUS Isaac Mizrahi Eau de Parfum
Birchbox says: For his first scent, the designer created a fanciful blend of mandarin and jasmine laced with vanilla.
My review: This fragrance seemed very faint to me. It smelled OK but it was hard to detect after about 10 minutes.
amika Obliphica Nourishing Mask
Birchbox says: Packed with omega acids and vitamic C, this lush conditioning mask boosts shine and even helps repair split ends.
COOLA Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face
Birchbox says: This mineral sunblock is infused with organic antiaging ingredients like evening primrose extract and borage seed oil.
Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste
Birchbox says: A stylish Italian import with an invigorating peppermint flavor.
My review: I was so surprised when I saw toothpaste in the box. I thought it was very smooth - not gritty like some. It wasn't an overpowering peppermint flavor which some can be. I don't know that it made my teeth any cleaner than my normal Crest though so I will stick with what I have.
Birchbox says: We want our pens to be just as stylish as our accessories, which is why we love Pilot Pen's latest innovation, the new Acroball PureWhite hybrid ink pen.
My review: I am a HUGE pen snob. I am constantly hunting for and buying new pens. This pen has pink ink which is not my first choice but it writes nicely. I could see myself using the coupon and buying the four-pack.
So that is my May Birchbox. Overall, I give it...
...because I know I will not use all the samples and I will likely throw away a few before they are finished. However, the pen and corresponding coupon were a nice touch.
