It was exciting to come home after work to a BirchBox waiting for me. I’ve been on a bit of a budget for awhile now, so it’s always nice to get some free goodies to try out. This month was an assortment of items, some typical of BirchBox and some a little abstract. If i’m being honest this wasn’t one of my better BirchBox experiences.
Here is What I received this Month and What I think About it:
Harvey Prince Eau Flirt:
This scent is layered with scents of fresh citrus and jasmine notes over a base of lavender and pumpkin. While all of these scents sound fantastic- I have to say that this fragrance is a little on the masculine side IMO. I would find this an attractive scent on a man and I will not be using it. Absolutely no offense to any females wearing this scent- it is just not my cup of tea.
Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum:
Aside from “goop” being one of the number 1 things I try to avoid with cosmetics, i’m excited to try this out. Sun Safety is always important in my beauty book and I enjoyed one of their products in a Sun Safety Kit I reviewed last Summer.
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner:
This was one of the better items I received this time around. Although I haven’t had the chance to try it out, it looks promising. This eyeliner isn’t labeled waterproof so I have to be careful using it because I have oily eyelids, but the tip looks like velvet. Almost like a black highlighter. (Comment if you would like me to report back on how I liked this)
Color Club Blue Ming:
This was my favorite item in this BirchBox. It’s a beautiful bright Aqua color that is perfect for Summer. I currently only have a few blue nail polishes and none of them are this shade. I can’t wait to try this out
- Tea Forte Minteas (Tea Infused Mints): I’m jazzed to have a new purse goodie. (Everyone should have purse goodies! ;P)
- Blue and Pink Earbuds: Although the colors on these are fabulous, I can’t stand this shape earbud. I’m pretty exclusively involved with iPod style earbuds. I’m so sad to say I won’t be able to use these. They just won’t stay snug in my ears ;/
What’s in Your July 2012 BirchBox??
