Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Eyeshadow Quad, <$4.99 [$19.95 for 20 colors; sample size: 4 colors]
I tend to gravitate toward deeper, darker colors, so my first impression of this palette wasn't so positive.  I layered the eyeshadows over primer, and they had fairly good staying power. However, they're not terribly pigmented, so it took a decent amount of layering to build up the color, and I experienced a lot of fall-out from the brown shade.

Harvey Prince Yogini, ? [$26.00 for 8.8 ml]
This was a fresh, vaguely floral fragrance with a hint of grapefruit.

Marcelle Clay Mask, $2.23 [$15.00 for 3.7 oz; sample size: 0.55 oz]
The color of this mask was light for a clay mask. It dried firm in 10 minutes, and it didn't have a strong smell like many clay-based products do.

Naobay Oxygenating Cream Moisturizer, $14.19 [$36.00 for 1.7 oz; sample size: 0.67 oz]
This moisturizer smelled deliciously like froot loops - it seriously gave me a craving. It dries matte, and there's no SPF, so it makes a great evening moisturizer (although it may make you hungry).

Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect, $4.80 [$32.00 for 200 ml; sample size: 30 ml]
This product did seem to help in detangling my hair, but I didn't love its watered-down fragrance.

Total Value: ~$26.21
Another gorgeous and unique box filled with a variety of interesting products. Check out Birchbox for yourself: HERE
