Welcome to another BirchBox unboxing, this month's themes is 'Mermaid Vibes' and who doesn't like mermaids? I received 5 products in this box which includes the mesmerising Spectrum Collections A05 Brush from the Bomb Shell Collection that we got to choose a few weeks ago. If you didn't know (where have you been? ) Birchbox is a subscription which costs £12.99 a month including postage and packaging. Use my referral link here to sign up!

Spectrum Collections A05 Angled Blush Brush £6.99/£7 single or £79.99/£80 for set

I have been a huge fan of the Spectrum Brushes and I own the 10 pieces essential set (I'm giving a set away for my 1000 subscriber so don't forget to enter here) which includes the A05 Angled Blush Brush. You can use makeup brushes anyway you like and I like using the A05 as a bronzer brush for the all over the face glow and also for illuminating my face, the angled aspect fits really nice under the cheekbones and apply all my powders products really well. Now that I have another I can focus this one on blush only. They are super soft not to mention incredibly beautiful to have on your vanity. Spectrum Brushes are vegan and cruelty-free! This one that I received within the box is from the Bomb Shell collection and is not sold separately.

LOC One and Done Eyeshadow Stick in Rock Steady £8 (full size)

A brand created by Birchbox themselves, I have received quite a few products before and this crayon stick claims to last up to 11 hours and is creaseless and waterproof. I had an eyeshadow stick obsession and have accumulated quite a few shades. These ones from LOC are creamy, easy to blend with your fingers and are incredibly pigmented. The shade Rock Steady is a metallic brown bronze, even with eyeshadow stick having a good longevity I still need to prime my eyelids since I have oily skin.

Number 4 Sugar Texturizing Spray £20 (full size)

I received Number 4 products before and have loved them especially their conditioner, this texturizing spray is formulated with sugar came and can help create the loose shiny beach waves which stay through humidity and heat. With my hair being coloured so often I am avoiding products that can dry out my hair so I will be giving this a miss until I change my hair colour. If you have received this let me know how you get on!.

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse/ Dry Shimmer Oil £20 (full size)

This is a cult favourite and can be used on your skin, body, hair - anywhere you want it. This contains six essential oils including vitamin E and nourishes your skin as well as giving a golden glow. If you are still reaching for that golden glow give this a go, it's hydrating and smells amazing on the skin.

Huygens Supernature Cream £25 (full size)

This claims to hydrate skin and is packed with organic rose water to boost circulation and soothe redness. I am currently breaking out (eating too many hot Cheetos) so for my skin, I am sticking to the minimum and won't be trying this out, for now, it does have a light floral scent and has softened my skin where I tested it out on the back of my hand.
