When Birchbox released the Limited Edition boxes curated with products from the finalists of the Cosmetic Executive Women (CEW) Insiders' Choice Beauty Awards, I bought them right away. They just called to me. Birchbox always has awesome limited edition boxes throughout the year and these two are ones I look forward to the most. This review is for the Prestige Headliners and I'll be doing the Mass Appeal Box in a separate post.

Each box comes with an information card detailing the products. This box contains five of the best luxury beauty products of 2014 and two "Lifestyle Extras."

Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme (Value - $6.40 - Travel Size)
     I was so excited to get this in the box. It's been very humid in New England lately so this is going to help my hair tremendously. It's a lightweight, leave in styling creme infused with olive oil. I also love the smell so it makes me want to put it in so I can smell it all day.

Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil Light (Value - $4.52 - Deluxe Sample)
     This is 100% pure argan oil sourced from Morocco that is lightweight and moisturizing. You can wear it on its own to hydrate your face and give yourself a little go or even as primer for your makeup. Not only that but you can even use it on your hair for split ends, on your cuticles, and anyplace that needs a little extra hydration. I have a feeling I'm going to fall in love this.

Coola Environmental Repair Plus Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion (Value - $2.67)
     To be fair I don't normally need after-sun lotion because I'm really good about wearing sunscreen. My mom on the other hand is always in the sun and burns easily so I will be passing this on to her.

Philosophy Miracle Worker Overnight (Value - $13.60)
     This is an age-resetting, anti-wrinkle moisturizer that contains a rare marine algae and vitamin C to help give you healthier and softer skin and deep hydration. I'm a little young for this so I'll probably give this to my mom as well.

100% Pure Creamy Nail Polish in Velveteen (Value - $12 - FULL SIZE)
      This nail polish is nice because it is a vegan formula. It's made without synthetic ingredients, is cruelty free, and gets it color from natural fruit and veggie pigments. I'm not quite sure how I feel about the color yet. We'll see how it looks on but it is a good fall tone so my fingers are crossed.

Lifestyle Extras:
    For those I got a set of toe separators which I don't normally use but you never know and a little mirror.

Total value of the Prestige Box ended up being $39.19 not counting the lifestyle extras. I'm pretty impressed and happy with what I got. It's a great deal if you're interested in trying out some all-star products. If you want to subscribe for the monthly box for $10 a month as well you can sign up here.
