So, this month’s theme is “Wanderlust”… kickin off the summer with a beauty travel mash-up that’ll serve you well on all your summer adventures!
|Color Club® Wanderlust Collection in Reign in Spain (coral). This is a collection of neon pastel shades. 2 coats gives an opaque, glossy finish. I’m not a fan of NEON… I mean, I lived through the 80s with the neon gummy bracelets & sandals… but, this is a cute, girly color that I’m excited to try.
(Sample Value: $2 ~ Retail: $8/4 mini-polishes at 7ml each)
|Furlesse Elevens | Frown line reducing patches. These are clear, latex-free patches that prevents frowning (which causes frown lines) as you sleep. I thought it was pretty funny… who comes up with this?! I’m normally smiling or laughing while I’m awake, so I’d imagine I’m doing the same as I sleep. I guess prevention never hurts, but this is something I’ll save for much later since I’m not all that comfortable about pasting something on my face as I sleep…
(Sample Value: $2 ~ Retail: $19.99 for a 30-Day Supply/30 Patches)
|Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Navy Blue. I don’t normally use LIQUID eyeliner… let alone eyeliner in NAVY BLUE, but I heard plenty of great things about this product, so I’m totally excited to try this!
(Sample Value: $9 ~ Retail: $16/.07 oz)
|Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream. This is a non-foaming cream with a moisturizing base of omega-rich squalene, organic shea butter, jojoba oil, and coconut oil to protect against redness & irritation, while organic green tea extracts infuse skin with antioxidants. (Smells DELICIOUS!)
(Sample Value: $2.85 ~ Retail: $20/150ml)
|Glee Gum. All natural gum with no artificial ingredients.
(Sample Value: $.25 ~ Retail: $11.95/Case of 12 boxes w/16pcs per box)
Not all that impressed with this month’s Birchbox… HOWEVER… I am looking forward to using the Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner, Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream, and my Color Club Nail Polish in Reign in Spain.
Plus, my JRoc gets a few pieces of sugar-free gum… oh, and some really cute postcards! Ahahaha (^.^)
