July 2015 Birchbox Unboxing!

When I opened this months Birchbox, I instantly fell in love with the box. IT'S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BOX EVER. Definitely keeping it! Anyways, let's take a peak at what I got this month!

I was so stoked to receive a sample of the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, a classic red shade. I've been dying to try the Stila liquid lipsticks and I've been in the market for a long-wearing matte red color so this is beyond perfect. Score 1 for Birchbox! It feels so creamy, light weight and took a hard scrub to get it off my lips, great news for staying power.

I was also excited to see an Amika un.Done Texture Spray sample. I got a dry shampoo sample of this brand before and really liked it, so I'm excited to try this texture spray! Plus the packaging is so damn cute.

The two skin care samples I got is the Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator and Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow. It's hard for me to actually use skin care samples because I easily forget about them when it comes time to wash my face, but they are great for travel! The Marcelle BB cream is kinda throwing me for a loop just by swatching it because it's a pretty opaque, dark gold tinted cream that I'm nervous to put all over my face, haha. I'll still test it out though and see how it goes. It might be good mixed with foundation to add a little more glow to it.

Lastly, a nice little bottle of the Davines SU Hair & Body Wash, a clear gel that supposedly hydrates both skin and prevents sun damage to hair. This will definitely come in handy after spending time in the sun at the pool. I'm a little weary of combination type products though, and reminds of the ridiculous combination toiletries by some sketchy brand you find in hotel rooms that is a shampoo/conditioner/mouthwash/toothpaste and turns my hair into a total train wreck. I forgot my own hair products once and was forced to use them. Never again. But it's Davines so it should be trustworthy. I'll put it in my hair and see what happens I guess!

Welp, not bad Birchbox! The Stila sample was worth it alone. Is it weird that the box was the runner up for me? I just can't get over it. What did you get this month?
