June Birchbox

I totally rave about birchbox, because it's awesome. Have you not tried it yet? Why not? It's only $10/month and you'll get some pretty sweet stuff to sample. The great thing is that a lot of times, you actually get the full-sized product, and in a lot of cases, that's a value anywhere between $8-50, so it totally pays for itself most of the time.

What's in my box this month?

  •  LUNA Bar. Yum & enough said there.
  • Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift. I will be honest and say I probably wouldn't buy this perfume, but it smells good I guess. I'll probably put it on every once in a while.
  • Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive. I actually gave this sample to a friend.  BUT these towelettes seem pretty awesome. Supposedly they are streak-free. I'll have to ask my friend if that's true.
Okay but these are the products that I'm in love with this month.

  • Stila one step bronze | This is a 3-in-1 primer, bronzer and skin protector. It's actually like a cream as opposed to a powder. After application, it dries with a coppery, matte-like finish. I also found out that the serum helps regulate oil production wand  helps shrink the look of enlarged pores, lines & wrinkles. (watch a video about it here)

    Okay I totally sound like an infomercial but really, I have used this for a couple of days now and I really like it. No I love it. And they sent the full sized product (regularly $40!). I'm pretty pleased with it and I think I will be purchasing this again once it runs out.

  • theBalm cosmetics Stainiac | This is a tinted gel used for both lips AND cheeks. It's water-based, so as long as you blend it well, it won't leave any streaks. To see the application of this product, click here.

    I have been using Stainiac the last few days as well and I'm impressed. The look it leaves on your cheek is similar to a blush but since it doubles as a lip stain-- it's pretty much brilliant.

I am not paid to write these reviews of birchbox, but I really do love getting these little mystery beauty boxes in the mail and totally recommend it!! So if you haven't signed up yet, do it!

I am sort of obsessed with the stainiac this month, it leaves a nice color and not to strong, I have been using it on my lips.

I am jealous of your bronzer! I had the Taylor Swift perfume a few boxes ago and didn't love it, either. And the towelettes? I am nervous to use them. Streak-free...yeah, we'll see. :) I've been using the lip stain every day. I like it! I'm more of a stain girl than a gloss girl. I usually don't wear ANYTHING on my lips (maybe Blistex?), but especially not gloss, so, stain is nice. :)

I got the bronzer too and I love it! Something I would've never splurged on for myself.

I've been wanting to try Birchbox for a while, and I think you've convinced me! Hope I get goodies as awesome as that when my first box arrives!

You may have convinced me...it looks like so much fun, but then what would I do with the stuff I won't use? I could always give it to a friend! That bronzer looks awesome!
