July’s Birchbox theme was “Go Bold.” I assume they meant to be bold with beauty and maybe not like boldly go break the law…
Supergoop City Sunscreen Serum – Yet again, the name Supergoop baffles me. This was a special sunscreen serum just for your face. My sister and I went to Roseland Water Park and Enchanted Forest Water Safari this summer. I used this serum on both occasions and it worked really well. I’m always wary about using regular sunscreen on my face because it’s such a heavy product to put on. This serum was lightweight but still protected my skin from the sun. (Full Size $42)
Stila Look At Me Liquid Lipstick – People really did look at me. I usually wear pink and red lipsticks (sometimes I throw a berry on to be daring). Never in my life have I ever worn a shade of pink this bright. People definitely noticed and most of them did not have nice comments about it. BUT I liked it. It went on as a liquid and dried quickly to a matte lipstick. It lasted FOREVER. Like by the end of the day after eating 2 meals with this lipstick on, I had to use makeup remover to get it off. This is some long lasting color! (Full Size Trio Set $35)
Juice Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream – This product was just strange! It promised to do 1,000 different things on the packaging and in actuality it did nothing.It was supposed to color correct to my skin, but it never was really the right shade. It smelled awful. Like a freakin green smoothie. It didn’t blend in well. It was streaky. Just awful. Don’t buy it. (Full Size $39)
Harvey Prince Hello Body Cream – Yet again, I was sent a Harvey Prince scent. This time it was a body cream. I had been sent Hello perfume previously and I liked the smell. The body cream was nice, smelled good, and made my skin feel soft. (Full Size $22)
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray – Ironically I got this and then a day or so later I was watching Grace Helbig‘s favorites video and she mentioned this spray. You use it instead of a dry shampoo. I liked using this on just washed hair because it gave it the little bit of texture that I needed, but I didn’t really like using it instead of a dry shampoo on my non-hair wash days. It doesn’t absorb the oils in your hair as well as dry shampoo does. But it’s still a really cool product. (Full Size $42)
