I haven't tried this product from Macadamia Natural Oil before, but the entire line gets non-stop rave reviews so I'm really excited to received this sample! The sample size is very generous so I'll get lots of use out of the product and will be able to fully form an opinion on it. I'm thrilled to get to try this out.

Opposites attract in this gentle-but seriously effective-remover. Shake to combine the layers of oil, chamomile, and cucumber-infused H2O, then apply with a cotton ball.

Another generous size sample makes me very happy! I use an eye makeup remover every night that I wear makeup, so this will come in handy. I'm especially intrigued by the inclusion of chamomile and cucumber infused water in this particular remover. It sounds as though it will be very gentle and nourishing. I look forward to using this!
MAKE - Silk Cream Lipstick ($18.00 full size)
We were smitten with this new brand's lovely pigments even before we found out that one-third of all sales are donated to charity. We'll take one in every shade.

This teeny tiny lipstick is adorable. I received the shade Maraschino Cherry which is a vibrant pinky red (see below for swatch). The color is very pigmented and looks beautiful sheered out or worn opaque and bold. This will be a fun shade to keep in my bag for spring when I'm feeling a little daring with my look.
SAGE + fasten - Common Sense Eau de Parfum ($50.00/50 ml)
Made in New York, this small-batch scent features layers of lotus flowers, peach, and lychee. We love that it's free of parabens, sulfates, and synthetics.
Sample size: 3.5 ml
Sample value: $3.50
I love this scent! The combination of subtle floral and fruity notes make it incredibly fresh and approachable. This is one of those scents that just make me feel happy. I also adore the fact that it's a miniature rollerball. I look forward to wearing this and testing it out to see how long the scent lingers on me. If this one has good lasting power, I think I'll be purchasing it in the future.

Made with macadamia and tea tree oils, this rich treatment strengthens strands from the inside while also adding major gloss.
Sample size: 0.5 oz
Sample value: $2.12
I purchased one of the little foil pack samples of this hair masque a few months back. I was able to get a couple of uses out of it and enjoyed using it. This is a really expensive masque, so I'm really happy to have another sample of it to use.
Madewell for Birchbox - Emery Board ($5.00/board)
We teamed up wtih Madewell to create this adorable mini savior, patterned after a print from their new spring collection.
Sample size: 1 board
Sample value: $5.00
How freaking adorable is this emery board? I also love the fact that they thought to include a plastic sleeve for it. I like to keep an emery board in my purse for emergencies, but I hate the way they feel loose in my bag. This beautiful file is going straight to my handbag where I'll happily pull it out as needed.
Total box value: $20.13+

I have to say, well done Birchbox! I'm crazy about my box this month. I love the lipstick, the perfume, and the emery board and I am super excited about the hair products and eye makeup remover. This is one of the best boxes I've had in months and months. Absolute home run!
