July Glamour Birchbox

Oh my goodness. I was so very excited when I opened up this month's box!

For those of you who don't know what a Birchbox is, it is monthly beauty box subscription for $10 a month and "every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch.

I didn't mention last month's box because it was meh. Not all that awesome. But this July one, I'm pretty stoked!

  Beauty Blender
Makeup Sponge

 Harvey Prince Hello
Meyer lemon, white grapefruit, mandarin and pink plumeria infused
 Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint
Luminizing tint that adds a dewy finish
 Stila Lip Glaze
Lip gloss with a sheer sparkly wash

  Tea Forte
Cocoa tea infused reboot energy mints

 Exclusive Earbuds
Before even opening the box, I was so excited that it was Glamour inspired. I knew it was going to be a good box and I can honestly say that this is my favorite box by far. All of the items I know I am actually going to use.

I can't wait to use the Beauty Blender! I have heard so many raves about this pink squishy thing. Hopefully it will own up to it. I was so surprised when it came in my box. Seriously? It's an $19.95 makeup blender and I could never justify paying that much for it. Thanks Birchbox! 

The Harvey Prince perfume smells so lovely! Even my Hubby liked the way it smells. He's pretty pick-y when it comes down to scents I wear and I have a very sensitive nose. But this is a very light, sweet and refreshing smell.

I have yet to try the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint but so far it seems like nice product. I probably won't buy the full product because the sample product is just too tiny and by the time it's done I won't really know if it works or not but I am hoping for the best. 

I'm not too excited about the lip glaze, it's a bit thick and sticky and I'm not a fan of that. Although the tiny sheer wash of color and sparkle on my lips is beautiful.

The tea cocoa infused mints are a pretty nice touch to my Birchbox. I actually kind of like it. I'm not sure if it gives me any energy but it's a nice mint!

I am definitely going to use the earbuds. Yeah! Especially when I hit the gym! And look at that pink and green. What a cute combo!

So what'd you get in your Birchbox?


  1. I love the Stila Lip Glaze's!!! The mint's look like they would taste really good!

  2. Oh those earbuds are so cute! <3

  3. What a neat little collection of products, fun!

  4. You got a really great box! I hope you end up liking the Beauty Blender. I love it!

  5. I definitely felt the same about the moisturizer. And if you'd like I will totally mail you my perfume sample. just shoot me an email okayeamy@gmail.com if you want it =)
