August 2015 – Birchbox


August’s Birchbox came to me slightly squished, but the pool theme was absolutely adorable.


Coola Makeup Setting Spray – I really liked this spray and as a bonus it was SPF 30! The spray went on nice and dried quickly. The only downside was that after 2 uses my spray top broke! I tried for a week to fix it, but sadly I didn’t get to use the rest of my sample. (Full Size $36)


LAQA & Co Cheeky Lip – In a previous box I got a LAQA lip color that I loved, this one was disappointing. It said that it could be used on your lips or your cheeks, neither worked for me. It’s an orangey-coral color that didn’t look great with my skin tone. On my cheeks, it wouldn’t blend, it just smeared all over the place. On my lips, it was like the color wouldn’t set. It was constantly streaky and smearing all over. Not great. (Full Size Trio Kit $20)


I Am Juicy Couture – I think it’s every 20 something year old woman’s dream to have a Juicy Couture perfume. But to afford it, I’d probably have to sell a kidney on the black market. This smelled heavenly. I loved it. (Full Size $94)


Parlor Smoothing Blowout Spray – I’ve used blow out sprays in the past, and so far I haven’t found one that I’m in love with yet. This just gave my hair the teensiest extra shine, but that’s about it. (Full Size $24)


IPKN Flash Cream Radiant Primer – I’m not a big primer person anymore because I’ve gone off of foundations. I mostly like to use tinted BB creams now because they compliment my freckles better. But I’ve used the primer when I mix a smidgen of foundation with my BB cream and it comes out very nicely. Seems like a pretty average primer to me. (Full Size $28)

Stay Beautiful you lovely people of the internet!
