Unboxing: Birchbox November 2015

Usually I peek and this month the box totally caught me by surprise because it arrived on my doorstep and I had no clue what was in it! I liked that though so I think I'm going to try harder not to peek from now on and just be surprised.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Birchbox it is one of those monthly beauty sample boxes where they send you a box of 5-6 (sometimes even 7 with bonus extras) samples and deluxe samples. Occasionally there will be full size products too! The brands they send are all fairly high-end and they have a point system and customer service staff that just can't be beat. For $10 a month you are able to select a sample from a select group of choices and have more surprises delivered to you based on your beauty profile! Have I convinced you to sign up yet? If so I would love it if you would do it through my referral link here! Feel free to also go to www.birchbox.com if you want to look around without any strings attached to me.
The theme for November 2015 was....was there one? I know that this box was a collaboration with Tati from GlamLifeGuru so I think it was just a curation of her favorite products.
LOC Complete Collection for Lips
Full Size Value: $18 | Sample Size Value: $6
This was the chosen item for the month. It was either one of three lip crayons or one of two eye shadow sticks. Naturally I chose the dark plummy lip color because it's just what I go for. This is in the color Glam Life which I believe all three colors were created by Tati.
theBalm® cosmetics Frat Boy® Blush/Shadow
Full Size Value: $21 | Sample Size Value: $3
Cute little blush sample, I actually own this blush and it's one of my favorites. I love the tiny packaging but this really isn't a practical size to be useful at all. I still appreciate the cute factor though and at least it's a product that I love.
Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum – Fine to Medium
Full Size Value: $38 | Sample Size Value: $8.76
Hair stuff...really...?
Temple Spa La La Lagoon Aromatic Bath & Shower Gel
Full Size Value: $18 | Sample Size Value: $3
Name one person who subscribes to a beauty box and would be happy to get a shower gel sample, yeah pretty hard right? It smells extremely tree like too, not a fan at all.
Harvey Prince Sincerely
Full Size Value: $57 | Sample Size Value: $1
And probably most offensive of all is this perfume sample. It's rose and something else that together just smell awful in my opinion. Enough with the perfumes already!!

Value of Box: $21.76
