Birchbox July

I received my July Birchbox on Saturday and I have some pretty interesting products to share with you this month...

Glamour Magazine partnered with Birchbox to create The Senses.  The point being that your beauty routine should stimulate all of your senses, so they provided products to do just that..
..and  as always, the packaging is so fun..

Here is the bounty..

First up is Boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens..
In their own words..These shine-busting sheets absorb oil with all-natural green tea extracts to leave skin matte. Sounds like a great  product for the summer heat, I can't wait to try it.
100 sheets/$10

Next, Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner..
This product really intrigued me and I found myself running for the mirror to apply it because when I opened it, it looked like this..
It was like applying eyeliner with a Crayola Marker. The jury is still out on this one. I had to go over it a couple times to get a dark enough mark, but I liked that it was a very thin consistency.
Full size/$15

Third up, Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint..
Now, I am a hard sell on tinted moisturizer because I am absolutely in love with Laura Mercier's Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer right now. This felt a little thick on my hand and maybe a little less coverage, but it looked and felt very nice..
Full size/$38

I think I've found a new fragrance! Oscar de la Renta's Live in Love..
If you like clean scents like I do, then you'll love this. It has a slight floral note which I am normally not a fan of, but in this scent, it's not overwhelming. I love it!
Full size/  $25-$78

Next is Larabar Uber
Okay, I had a hard time understanding what this had to do with beauty products, but I guess they needed something to fill in for the sense of taste .....I tried it. I didn't like it. It didn't help matters that I hate cherries.  Blah!
Variety pack of 16/$27.95..Ridiculous!

Last but not least..New neon earbuds!
Wahoo!
That's all for the Birchbox this month!
Thanks for reading!
Love,
Val
