I was SO thrilled when I got notice that I’d be one of the 100 recipients to receive this limited edition Cynthia Rowley Beauty box FREE through Birchbox! I was in Vegas and I got the notification from Birchbox so I didn’t even notice it, so I ended up turning in my reply a couple days LATE. But fortunately, Birchbox was awesome and understanding and sent it anyway!
In case you aren’t familiar, Birchbox is a subscription box service where you receive 4-6 beauty and lifestyle samples delivered to your mailbox every month. Boxes usually consist of samples, deluxe samples, and sometimes full-sized products. (To view my past Birchbox reviews, click here.)
Birchbox is $10/month to join and they also have an exclusive club just for bloggers and vloggers called “Birchbloggers”. It is free to join as a Birchbox subscriber and you get weekly emails which feature sneak peeks, as well as notifications for products you can apply to review for via twitter and contests. This is how I received my Cynthia Rowley box because of an email I received through Birchbloggers!
Cynthia Rowley is a New York-based fashion designer known for her fun-loving designs. She just launched a new beauty collection that is exclusively sold in the Birchbox Shop and the purpose of this box is to serve as an intro to the collection.
Like regular Birchboxes, the Cynthia Rowley box came with its own information card detailing the contents of the box. Unlike regular Birchboxes, you cannot review these items for points to redeem in the exclusive Birchbox Shop, but… who CARES! An extra box!!! (see previous Birchbox posts to see how you get acquire BB points. It’s super simple).
Cynthia Rowley Creamy Lip Stains– ($20 x 3= $60) I’m a lip product junkie and the fun colors when I took them out of their boxes made me feel a wee bit giddy. The shades are Tulip (an orchid shade), Valentine (a punch color) and, my favorite, Sugar (a nude-pink).
Cynthia Rowley Liquid Liners ($18 x 2= $36) Do you use liquid liners? I used to be so scared of them and I have no idea why. It does take a little practice, but if you need a precise and bold cat-eye, a liquid liner can really do a supreme job. I received both Brown and Black shades in the box.
Cynthia Rowley Eyeshadow Palette– No. 2 $24- This is a candy-inspired palette of pastel colorings. These are all matte shades and the colors apply very soft.
Cynthia Rowley Confetti Neoprene Bag ($15)- The confetti party theme continues on this bag! At first I didn’t think I received such a large amount of goodies because they were all zipped-up inside! So, the point is, this bag is really roomy.
Cynthia Rowley Eyeliners ($16×4= $64)- Product info: Glides on easily and smudge-proof. I received the shades: Black, Charcoal, Silver, Sky Blue, and Violet. I have to say my favorite part about all the makeup is the fun party designs. I have so many liners that just come in plain, ordinary casing, that I really have to hunt and peck around for and examine which one I want. The gold flecks on these make them easy to grab and pin-point.
CuRious Candy Chocolate ($10)- I have never eaten a $10.00 candy bar before. (This almost didn’t make it long enough to be photographed.) Pro-tip: A $10 chocolate bar tastes just as wonderful as you’d imagine a $10 chocolate bar would taste.
Cynthia Rowley Eyewear ($109)- I SOOO wasn’t expecting these! I thought this box would just be cosmetics! What do you think?
I really do feel honored to have received this!

I’d like to share the Cynthia Rowley love with one of my readers! One reader will receive the designer Sunglasses (a $109 value!). I wore them just for this pic and then back in their case they went!
