Birchbox | July 2012

I just received my July Birchbox in the mail today! It is always so exciting to get this little pink box in the mail. I was a little nervous that I might not like this box because after seeing the Sneak Peek; I just wasn't too thrilled with the products they showed. So after I received the notification that my box shipped, I immediately started scouring youtube for unboxing videos. My fears intensified as I saw more and more boxes that were just so-so. I kept my hopes up that my box would be different since the main feature of their boxes was the Eyeko Skinny Liner, and I had just got that last month so, though I absolutely love it, I was hoping not to get a repeat.

 Anyway, here is my box!

 Box Breakdown:

Beauty Samples
  1.  Stila | Lip Glaze in Action. A sparkly dusty rose gloss with a turn-brush applicator. 
  2. Boscia | BB Cream SPF 27.
  3. Color Club | Mini in Blue-Ming. Creme sky blue with a green tint, basically a bright mint.
  4. Annick Goutal | Eau d'Hadrien. Citrus scent in a very fancy way (if that makes sense...)
Lifestyle Extras
  •  Tea Forte | minteas Resist in Lime Mojito. Super minty leaf-shaped mints with a touch of lime.
  • Earbuds in Blue & Pink

Overall, I am happy with my box. I didn't receive any full size beauty products this month, but the samples were all deluxe and things I will be interested in using! The only thing I am not too fond of is the perfume. If it was up to me, I would never want a perfume sample, but I understand that some people do, and it is an easy sample to give out. I love the nail polish and the lip gloss. I am also really excited to try out the BB Cream. I haven't tried one before, and I think it would be a great product for me. I would like more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but hate putting on a full-face of foundation every morning, especially in the summer. I also swatched it and at first it looked darker than my skin (I am super pale) but as the product stated, it self-adjusted to my skin tone. I am also really happy with the lifestyle extras. Who doesn't like earbuds & mints?
