Is it really almost the end of June?! Wow. I’ll be 5 weeks cancer free tomorrow!! Last weekend my best friend and I took a little time off for a girls day to celebrate the 1 month mark. We got manis/pedis, took a Target trip, ate some yummy food, did a little shopping and got tattoos (I got some Royal Teeth lyrics on side of my leg)… Talk about an amazingly rad day. Speaking of talking…lets talk about the June Birchbox!!
|New Box packaging.|
**Birchbox + Color Club Wanderlust Collection nail polish**
There were four neon pastel shades released. I received the pastel green one named London Calling…which I was pretty stoked about, one, because it’s a lovely shade, and two, I have what you might call a mild obsession with British things. This shade is comparable to Essie’s Absolutely Shore and comparable price wise as well since a full size bottle costs $8.
**LAQA & Co Lil’ Lip Duo**
This is essentially a lip color that comes in jumbo pencil form. It has a creamy texture when applied and there is a little minty “taste” left behind as a sort of afterthought. The color is actually quite pigmented. I love mine, in a pretty bright rosy pink shade, especially paired with my NARS Easy Lover lip gloss. A full size is $16 for 2, so definitely worth checking out.
**ORIGINS Clear Improvement Active charcoal mask to clear pores**
ORIGINS is always a brand I love to see since I really love their products. I’m a big fan of masks right now so I can’t wait to try this out this weekend! It’s a white clay and charcoal based mask that tightens your pores and draws out impurities, all while making your skin appear less dull. It’s supposed to be a great once a week mask and the full size product retails for $23.
**Oscar de la Renta Something Blue perfume sample**
This is a new scent from Oscar de la Renta, but it smelled really familiar. A lot of designer fragrances carry such similar notes. It starts with notes of mandarin and linden blossom and picks up to notes of bourbon vanilla and white musk. It’s definitely a warmer scent, something I would find more wearable for an autumn date night or the like. With a price point ranging from $85-$115, there are other very similar scents at more affordable prices if you are looking for something more economical.
**ORIGINS GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer**
Another ORIGINS product!! This moisturizer contains ginseng and coffee to combat lack-lustre skin. It’s also supposed to make your skin look energized and radiant. Now, I don’t know what “energized” skin appears like, but, my skin did have a radiant, dewy gloe! It also felt good, no greasy residue or anything!! Very lightweight and great for everyday use. The full size is $26.50.
Check out my new tattoo!! ((Royal Teeth lyrics))…and make sure to pick up the band’s full-length album, “Glow”, out this August!!
