My Second Birch Box

I got my second Birch Box
I'm trying to decide if I enjoy getting them or not.
So far I am happy with 90% of what they send.
I'm trying to decide if the 10% of poop is worth keeping.
Unfortunately I'm also one of those girls easily distracted by bright colors and pretty packaging.
I admit it.

This month's box was a senses type of theme.

The mints are from Tea Forte.
I don't enjoy chocolate.
They claim they're good for energy...
I'm not feeling any boost of energy while I'm plugging away at my desk job.

The ear buds are so awesome and colorful.
Mine are lime green with pink buds.
Unfortunately, they're cheaply made.
Nothing you can do about that, they are a BirchBox exclusive.
I do enjoy them though.
My tiny little ears like the squishy bud awesomeness.

The eyeliner is Eyeko Skinny Liquid in black.
I used the eyeliner during my summer show.

I was blown away.
Honest to goodness, I've only used liquid eyeliner once and I hated it due to the little brush.
I adore this liquid eyeliner pen.
I can even claim to have gotten the little cat eye right.
The liner lasted through a theatre production and longer. 
It's staying power was great, but fixing any mistakes was a little rough.
This liner is in it to win it.

The perfume sample that came was Harvey Prince Hello
I loved it.
It's gone.
I tried spraying the last bit of it into my closet to make my clothes smell fabulous.
I'm weird.
Anyway it was very light and one of very few flowery perfumes I enjoy.

Alterna BAMBOO® UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluide has dimethicone in it...
I don't use hair products with dimethicone in it because it's not water soluble.
No review to give.
Sorry loves.

Supergoop! City Sunscreen...
It's sunscreen.

Anyone else get a monthly subscriber box? I'd love to see you link up and share what you think of your boxes.

Those mints look weird!! I got a Larabar which I hadn't ever had and it was tasty! And I got eyeshadow instead of the eyeliner. First time for eyeshadow so that was pretty cool. The box made up for the Gossip Girl box which I wasn't fond of! I stumbled across another subscription program called my glam bag...thinking about trying it and if I like it better replacing Birchbox. Well see! Thanks for linking up girl!
