Color Club – Reign in Spain (Birchbox collaboration)

So Joliebox France was bought out by Birchbox, and has now changed its name to Birchbox. It always makes me a little nostalgic when this happens, and almost every other beauty box out here was bought out by Glossybox (who I refuse to deal with since I had a lot of really awful customer service) – so I guess it was always going to happen at some point.

Anyway, one good thing has come of this – it means us girls in France are getting the collaboration Color Club shades this month! I was a bit confused that I had two (the same shade), and then Birchbox sent out an email saying that the second was to give away to someone… Okaaay, why not?

There are four shades in the “Wanderlust Collection”, and I recieved Reign in Spain, a bright peachy coral. This is the prettier of the two bottles, you can see the printing went a bit off – but the other one had a lid that looked like someone had bit into it to open it…. Classy.

For a pale-ish neon coral, application was okay. It took a very long time to dry, but levelled quite nicely with a bit of patience. It did take me 2 coats to opacity then a third to level it out properly, but that’s about what I expect from a shade like this. With the slow drying time, there were a few bubbles (I waited a good half hour between coats….)

It’s odd that you can only buy this as a set (7ml each x 4 bottles) – in France we’re expected to pay 12.50€ if we’d like to order the set, when in the US it’s only at $8 (about 6€). A bit cheeky if you ask me !

If you’re wondering about the other shades, there’s nothing revolutionary : a creamy minty green, a lavendar and a very pale beige… All handy to have, but I wish they’d pushed the boat out and added some shimmer or something to make them a bit different, because I think almost every brand has these colours…

    Its a pretty color but so strange that the printing is rubbing off and the other one you got has the cap looking chewed off by something.

    • Yeah, that might be Birchbox/Joliebox though – every now and then I get a box where the bottles are dirty, scratched or there’s black dust in the box… I think they don’t take much care of the products in their storeroom !

    Such a gorgeous color! It’s a shame you can only buy a four-pack. I’d really like to pick up this shade and the nude, but not the lavender :/

  3. Beautiful swatch hon. Reminds me a bit of CG Son of a peach!
