Butter London WINK Eye Pencil in Pistol Pink – There were different colors sent out, and I got the pink one, which is probably the least wearable from the bunch, in my opinion. I kind of have an idea how I could use it, but I’m not realy sure if I like the color enough to justify all the hassle. I can’t imagine gifting it, so I’ll probably end up selling it on eBay or something. Have you ever used a pink eyeliner? How did you make it work?

H2O Plus Aquafirm Micro-Collagen Moisturizer – I heard good things about this moisturizer, but I probably won’t get to try it anytime soon, since I have two other full-sized creams that I need to test and review first, so I will just keep it in my travel bag for now. Did you try this one?

Illume Anemone Travel Tin Candle – The fragrance of this candle is so nostalgic! It actually smells exactly like my dad’s old shaving cream that he used when I was a kid 🙂 It was oddly floral, but I always liked it. Ahhh, memories!

Jane Iredale Lash Conditioner – I used to buy this lash primer/conditioner regularly, but lately I haven’t been using it much. It’s a good product to extend and condition your lashes, and it also works well to make them less brittle, since some mascaras can be harsh.

Tatcha Original Aburatorigami – Oh hey, guys, look, a new brand! Just kidding, I’ve probably buzzed your ears off talking about Tatcha over the past few weeks [spoiler alert: stay tuned for the giveaway!]. I have two packs stashed away in my purses already, so I will probably just keep this one on my table for midday touchups. I like that these papers don’t mess up my makeup like some others, but they aren’t super absorbent either, leaving just enough oil to make sure the skin isn’t overdried.

I thought this was overall a really nice box with a good selection of makeup, skincare and lifestyle products. I  just wish I had gotten a different color of eyeliner, because it looked like it’s easy to apply and blend.

Have you tried any of these products before?
