Birchbox | August 2014

Better late than never with this Birchbox! This month's theme was 'Lighten Up'-transitioning from summer to fall and bearing through that August heat.

I am really happy with the mix of products I got in this BB. I have recently become a fan of dry shampoo and so far, am liking the Perk Up Dry Shampoo from Amika. The bottle is adorable too. It leaves a bit of a white cast initially but is easy to work in. Next up, I got the Noir Cosmetics Long-Wear Liner. It claims to be waterproof, but I found it to wear off super fast on the waterline (which led to very itchy eyes all day...) Maybe it would work better along the lashline? I haven't found anything I like better than the Urban Decay 24/7 liners. I received two mini skincare items this month as well,the Vasanti Detox Nutrient-Rich Purifying Facial Cleanser and Dr. Jart+ Pore Medic Pore Minish Primer, that I haven't put to the test yet. Finally, I received a little tube of Harvey Prince Ageless Body Creme. Not a dislike, but not something I will repurchase. I found it to be difficult to smooth over skin resulting in needing a lot of product to cover an area, but it did feel hydrating and smell nice.

What did you get in this month's BB?
