Unboxing: Birchbox CEW Limited Edition Boxes

My favorite Birchbox limited edition boxes are always the CEW ones! Every year they release two boxes, the mass appeal and the prestige headliner boxes that features a collection of samples curated by the Cosmetic Executive Women Insiders' Choice Beauty Awards list. They always bundle the two boxes together for a $28 deal and this is my third year buying them. There's always hits and misses when it comes to it but it's an incredible deal and I've discovered some holy grail products from these boxes! Let's take a look at what is in each of these boxes for this year.

Mass Appeal Beauty Collection ($15)
"It’s hard to cut through the clutter in the drugstore beauty aisle—but that’s why we have the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards. Every year, over 6,000 industry pros come together and vote on the year’s best and brightest products. This exclusive Birchbox collection features drugstore-available honorees from the 2015 awards—you’ll get a luxurious overnight mask, a lip pencil that packs a wallop of creamy color, and more. A $68 value!"
1. Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands. A nice nudey brown. This is a great everyday color so it's something I can see myself using.
2. Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths. I'm always a fan of small packs of wipes for travel purposes and I was conveniently running low so these came at a good time!
3. LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask. My all time favorite sleeping mask! I was actually planning on buying a full size once I finished the other sleeping masks I already have so I appreciate getting a sample that I can throw back into the rotation in the meantime.
4. Olay Regenerist Luminous Dark Circle Correcting HydraSwirl Eye Cream. I love the cool swirl effect and the fact that this is a full sized product! You can never have enough eye cream and if it's not something I will use I know plenty of people who will happily take the freebie.
5. Rimmel Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara. I already have this mascara and I haven't actually used it yet! Stayed tune for my thoughts when I finally get around to it.
6. Simple Skincare Ultra-Light Gel Moisturizer. My all time favorite gel moisturizer and something I planned on repurchasing once I went through my moisturizer stash. I really scored when it came to this box since it gave me two holy grail products!

Prestige Headliners Beauty Collection ($18)
"It’s hard to know which new beauty products are worth the splurge—but that’s why we have the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards. Every year, over 6,000 industry pros come together and vote on the year’s best and brightest products. This exclusive Birchbox collection features honorees from the 2015 awards—you’ll get an indulgent glow-ifying face mask, a legendary liquid liner, and much more."
1. Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Push-Up Liner. I have so many of these samples and have yet to try it out. I hear the sample size is very difficult to work with so that's why I haven't cracked one open yet but I think it's finally time to try it out.
2. COOLA SPF 50 Sport - Mango. I love mango scented things, however I hate sunscreen. I know exactly where this guy can go though since these sample sizes are perfect for putting in purses for the girl on the go.
3. Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist - Creme Vanillee. Beautiful packaging and deliciously warm vanilla smell, I love this and the idea of a hair fragrance mist since it already is a habit to spritz my hair with perfume I appreciate something that is actually dedicated for it.
4. GLAMGLOW POWERMUD Dualclenase Treatment. Even these little foil packets are enough to cover your whole face. I like GLAMGLOW products I just think they are overpriced so I'm always grateful for samples!
5. GLAMGLOW THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment. Not one but two GLAMGLOW samples, I'm excited! This one is the hydrating mask so I'm looking forward to seeing how rejuvenated and plump my skin will be after use! I can probably squeeze two treatments out of this tube.
6. Marula Pure Marula Facial Oil. I went through a facial oil phase, and then my skin rebelled. Nevertheless I'll hold onto this to do a little it more research about the product as well as testing it out in the winter when the oil situation is a little bit more under control.
7. NUDESTIX Lip + Check Pencil - Blush. This color is similar to what I got in my other box but a little bit more pink. Still a great everyday color and I'll definitely use it!
