Beauty Travel Essentials From Birchbox In Partnership With Stila + Marcelle

It’s travel season and as all of us ladies know, taking your beauty products with you can be a bit of a struggle (even to the office as you melt in the subway! *cough*)

That’s why this July, Birchbox partnered with both Stila Cosmetics and Marcelle to bring to you two exclusive travel kits.

Let’s take a look!

 

Stila

 

“Look At Me” Liquid Lipstick Trio

  • $20.00 ($35.00 value), purchase here
  • Three (3) Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Minis (Bella, Beso, and Venezia)
    • Plus, a “Birchbox + Stila” clutch

This is a great little set because it comes with three core lip colors everyone uses: red, coral and pink.

These babies come in a creamy, matte formula that glide on smoothly.

They are highly pigmented and are infused with vitamin E and avocado oil.

Bella is bright pink, Beso is your traditional classic red and Venezia is a true bright coral.

 

[L-R: Venezia, Bella, Beso]

If long-lasting lipsticks, stains or any other type of matte lipstick dries out your lips, I definitely recommend using a chapstick or lip balm first before applying.

My personal favorites to use for this are Burt’s Bees or EOS.

 

Marcelle

 

“Mini Waterproof Eyeliner” Travel Kit

  • $18.00 ($35.00 value), purchase here
  • Four (4) Waterproof Eyeliner Minis (Mulberry, Indigo, Electric Blue, and Blue Lagoon)
    • Plus, a “Birchbox + Marcelle” carrying pouch

What’s really nice about this travel set is that it’s very summer friendly — meaning there is no black.

Instead, the Birchbox + Marcelle waterproof eyeliner travel kit comes with blendable shades in a blue, purple and brown staple combination.

The texture is incredibly soft and it does blend well.

But, be warned, just with all other waterproof/smudge-proof types of pencils, do your work quickly and efficiently because once it sets — it sets.

What’s also really nice about this set is that it’s easy to take the pencils from day to night with the likes of Indigo and Mulberry, while keeping Blue Lagoon and Electric Blue for during the day (or whatever your preference happens to be!)

Also, if you do purchase this set, try blending Blue Lagoon and Electric Blue together for a really fun summery look.

You can do this by applying a semi-thick line of eyeliner in Electric Blue, from your outermost top-lid to about three-quarters way in, finishing to the innermost top-lid with Blue Lagoon.

Lightly blend where they meet.

Apply some black mascara to your top and bottom lashes and let your eyes do all the talking! 😉

[L-R: Indigo, Electric Blue, Blue Lagoon, Mulberry]

Also, I really must mention the travel pouch that this kit includes.

While, it does hold your four pencils, it also has an additional two larger pockets where you can put a travel-sized blush or powder brush, even some travel-sized eyeshadow/blending brushes too.

I like that a lot.

Space-savers! *yesss!*
