It's that time of the month where each Birchbox Subscriber is anticipating the arrival of their July 2015 Birchbox! I was so excited to get this box this early in the shipments. This month each subscriber will be receiving one of the newest Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks from their Summer 2015 Collection! Which I am still mind blown about! I have been eyeing up the new liquid lipsticks at Ulta lately because they are so vibrant but I have never tried any of Stila's liquid lipsticks so I didn't know if I should pull the credit card trigger but I am so glad I didn't!
Also this month's box design is so vibrant and bold which I am loving it! I am not throwing this box away, actually I haven't thrown out any of the boxes this year because Birchbox has stepped it up and have been designing the boxes to fit the themes so go Birchbox!
As always when you get your box you get two cards one which advertises a brand's product or special deal BB is offering and their detailed product card which tells you what products you received and helpful tips on how to use it. This month they switched up their product card normally it's horizontal but this month it's vertical and I actually prefer it vertical don't ask me why! It just looks way better!
I'm actually very surprised on the size of the lipstick I thought it was going to be super super tiny but this is a really great size I think. I am going to get a lot of uses out of this little guy! The texture is a little bit thin but creamy at the same time. The doe foot applicator is not as precise how I would like it but it still does the trick. The lipstick fits my skintone perfectly and it wears for about 3 hours with your normal talking,drinking, and eating non greasy foods. I didn't find that this product dried out my lips and the best part of it all it is a demi matte finish which I am L-O-V-I-N-G!! Because I don't like those flat matte lipsticks.
Amika Texture Spray is supposed to give you those beachy waves to your hair, I saw that it added some texture to my hair not much but a little umph was good enough for me. It adds a nice subtle non greasy looking shine to your hair and the smell is beyond amazing!
Dr.Brandt Microdermabrasion has been one of my go to skin care items since late of last year and to have a little guy to take with me if I am going on a mini vacation or spending a night at a family or friends house is perfect in my book. This really gets into your skin and takes out the nasty gunk your skin likes to soak up and leaves your skin looking and feeling smoother,brighter, the appearance of your pores reduces. This product right here is pure magic in a black tube my friends.
Coola Cucumber moisturizer with an SPF of 30 does have a slight cucumber scent and absorbs into your skin quickly. It does not disrupt any of your complexion products and it gives you that protection you need from the harmful effects from the sun and premature aging.
I have the Juice Beauty CC cream that Juice Beauty sent to me to review and I don't really care for this particular product. I don't know I can't get over the scent I don't like how this looks or feels on my skin and I always get a tingly sensation. I used to like it but now I have a restraining order and this product can not be more than 100 feet away from my face.
Overall I do give this box a 8 out of 10 I am loving all the products minus the Juice Beauty CC cream I am beyond loving that every single Birchbox subscriber received one of the newest shades from Stila's Summer 2015 collection and that it wasn't just random subscribers like they did with the Benefit Cosmetics lash curler mascara.
