Recently I wrote a post about how obsessed I am with my monthly Julep Maven box, you can see my July box and read the review here.
The second box up for review today is my July Birchbox.
BB. is a monthly beauty box subscription where you receive 5-6 samples of beauty products for $10.00. Sometimes they throw in "lifestyle/health" products(last month I received a reusable sandwich bag?).
Each month BB has a theme, and this month's theme was the 5 senses, and the box was sponsored by GLAMOUR magazine.
Another beauty craze this summer was the attack of "BB" creams. For those of you who don't know, "BB"stands for "Beauty Balm". Basically an "All-in-One" concoction that is a moisturizer, primer, foundation, concealer, filler, sunscreen, bronzer or highlighter all in a single cream. There are various formulas and some claim to do more than others. I found that this formula was a bit watery and hard to blend in. Once blended, I was satisfied with the look and feel on my skin, but honestly I prefer my usual and much cheaper BB cream; Maybellines "Dream Fresh BB" .
I'm not a lip gloss gal but I do like stilas glazes. "Camera" adds some extra umph if I layer it over a lipstick. It also has a pretty reddish tint and adds some volume if applied alone. $12 for a set of three minis is a great deal. I was happy to find a FULL SIZE one in this months box.
Each month BB tosses in a nice little "extra". These buds are super cute and I love the fact that they come in trendy neon colors. The only thing is the sound quality was kinda dull when i used these with my ipod. All in all it was a nice addition.
Stay tuned for my BeautyArmy box review later this week, its definitely going to a "winner"(hint, hint... wink, wink)
