ORIBE Dry Texturing Spray – 37 ml/ 1.0 fl 0z ($4.94)
If you have thin hair, then its totally made for you. The Oribe Dry texturing spray adds a lot of volume to the hair. I got a lot of hair products this month and this by far has been the best hair spray. It provides volume, texture, lifts the hair and absorbs oil but doesn’t leave the powdery residue like dry shampoos. Oh, it smells great too.
Please note that it is a texturing spray – basically for adding volume and texture, with a few qualities of a dry shampoo.
Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel – 5 ml/0.17 oz ($4.80)
This product claims to remove dead skin cells, even out the skin and smooth out the rough patches without irritating your skin. This gel based peel is not a mask but a wash me off product. The sample size is too small but still I would really like to see its effectiveness.
Can Real Chemistry Luminous 3 minute peel help in reducing the appearance of acne scars, dark spots and redness to bring out the smooth, soft and brighter skin as it claims? Stay tuned for the review.
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks in “Bella” – 1.5 ml/0.05 oz ($12)
I am huge fan of Stila Stay All Day lipstick. It was the item that we get to select in Sample choice mails that Birchbox sent earlier this month. Since I already have Beso, I choose “Bella” as my choice and i couldn’t be happier. This liquid lipstick is high on pigmentation and stay. It would last you all day without budge. This hot pink lipstick is definitely a “pick me up” color.
The liquid formula is great, intense and sets to a matte finish, it wouldn’t make your lips dry or chalky either. However, it takes some practice perfecting the art of applying liquid lipstick but its totally worth your while as they last longer than regular lipsticks and don’t need touch ups. A little goes a long way. Highly recommended.

Fab n Pretty Review: This month Birchbox “Go Bold” Box came in a beautifully curated box. Its super pretty and the design speaks for the theme itself which is Go Bold. This box as i mentioned above is monthly themed box and not a featured one which i got last month.
All 5 products are from well known and highly popular brands. It is difficult to choose which one is my favorite but i confess being biased to the liquid lipstick by Stila. Honestly I love the box. Well curated and straight on mark, there isn’t a single item that i wont use. The beautiful box contained items worth $26 and is so useful to store pretty little things. I’ll say it’s a collectible in its own right.
Fab n Pretty Verdict: Really impressive. This month’s box is not high on the price as compared to the last month but the products are pretty darn good. I mean value of $26 isn’t so bad when you are trying 5 great luxury products by shelling out only $10 per month. Moreover, they always make sure that you receive goodies worth more than what you pay for. The point is that Birchbox is sending out great products month after month. Had they not been doing such a great job of delivering good products i would have unsubscribed but hey i am getting hooked.
Fab n Pretty Rating: 4.6/5
Let me know what you think about this month’s Birchbox.
See you soon!!!
