Lord & Berry Magic Brow Pencil in shade "Brunette"
Full Size Price: $22.00
Sample size value is approximately: $14.66
This is an eyebrow pencil that has a marbled tip to help mimic dimension in your brows. It has a smooth texture which allows for easy application. I found that it matched my brow color quite well and I was able to achieve my desired look with ease. I would purchase the full size of this product.

Bioderma Sebium Pore Refiner
Full Size Price: $19.90
Sample size value is approximately: $11.27
This is a pore refiner cream that claims to combat shine and minimize the appearance of pores with an astringent like agaric acid. To use this product, apply all over or target the oily areas after cleansing. The scent of this product is quite refreshing, it has an almost cucumber and spa like smell. I found that it felt refreshing on the skin but with any product like this, I do feel you need to use it for a prolonged period of time to attest to any claims. I would consider purchasing the full size of this product.

Doucce Cosmetics Freematic Eyeshadow Single in the shade "Veronica"
Full Size Price: $10.00
This a shimmer eyeshadow that is a bronze like shade. I found that the pigmentation was a bit lacking and it did take a few full applications to achieve the look I was going for. The color itself is pretty but nothing that I don't already have in my collection. From my research, this does appear to be a full size product and I would consider other shades to purchase.

Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse
Full Size Price: $39.00
Sample size value is approximately: $4.84
This is a hair plumping mousse that claims to amp up the volume of your hair without giving it that unwanted crunchy texture. To use, you work a golf ball sized dollop throughout your hair while it is damp, then scrunch. I do not use mousse and don't really have a need for a product like this but I found that it smelled nice and seemed to work well for someone who is in need of a product like this.

ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm in shade "Berry Busy"
Full Size Price: $14.00
This is an ultra-hydrating lip balm that adjusts the color based on your lips' pH, it will create a deep pink hue that is unique to each individual. I found that it was fairly hydrating and it was a nice true pink color on my lips. This is a full sized product and I would consider repurchasing in the future.

My January Birchbox is valued at $54.77.
I pay $10.00 a month for my subscription, so this gives me an additional value of $44.77.

Overall, I was fairly pleased with the samples I received. I do feel like the hair product wasn't properly matched to my profile but I am ok with trying something different every now and again. My favorite product from this month was the eyebrow pencil.
