February Birchbox

Happy early Valentine's Day! I got my first (yes, I'm expecting more) VDay treat in the mail this weekend, in the form of February's Birchbox!

If you don't already know about Birchbox, here's the drill: for $10 a month, five deluxe beauty samples are delivered to your mailbox. You don't know what you'll receive in your box, but your selections are based off a personality survey on their website.

What I got:
The whole shebang 

The deets

dermalogica | Daily Microfoliant full-size $50
I'm all for exfoliation, so I'm excited to try this dermalogica stuff out. It comes in powder form and you just add water before applying it.
beautyblender | the original beautyblender 2 pack $25.95
This is such a cute foundation sponge! Too bad I would never pay $25.95 for two of them. It does claim to make foundation look airbrushed, though.
EYE ROCK | Designer Liner 2 packs of 4 $13
Um, really? Do people actually put tape on their eyelids instead of using a pencil or liquid liner? This look isn't my style, but I'll try anything once.
Jouer | Luminizing Moisture Tint | full size $38
 I loved the Jouer lip gloss in the last Birchbox, so hopefully this tinted moisturizer won't disappoint.
*Extra* Nail File |
 Cute little nail file, although the shape is kind of awkward to hold onto.
*Extra* Green River Ordinance download
Six free downloads of an indie rock band Green River Ordinance. Not sure how this fits with Birchbox. Perhaps we're meant to listen while getting all dolled up?

This month wasn't nearly as exciting as January's box, so I'm glad to have signed up for MyGlam. I should be getting my first bag soon!

I'll post a review of February's box soon!
