What’s in my July Birchbox?

This Birchbox and I are having issues LOL… There are some great things in here, but the neon yellow tissue paper is NOT cooperating to make a good picture.  Oh well, whatcha gonna do?

My July Birchbox runs the gamut of beauty supplies, which is my favorite kind of box. There’s a little bit of everything in here!  I’m probably most excited about the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray.  It’s fabulous stuff and will easily jump into my bag for touchups. The beauty of sample size!

I’ve been using this exact StriVectin Advanced Retinol Eye Treatment lately, so it’s kinda cool to have a backup.  I’ve been really happy with it.  It absorbs really fast.  That sounds like something immaterial, but when you’re in a hurry it’s nice to have your products absorb quickly so that you can get your makeup on and get out the door.

This little theBalm Desert bronzer/blush is too darn cute.  I LOVE it when they send me samples from theBalm!  The quality is high, and they’re adorable.  Everytime I grab one in my makeup bag I smile!  The color looks pretty natural also.  I put a big swipe of it on my thumb to show you.

I’m currently undecided about the Stila liquid lipstick.  The color is called Bella and it’s a nearly neon hot pink.  I’m not sure I can pull this color off and the swatch on my hand started to wrinkle after a couple of minutes.  I’m concerned that it will be too drying for my lips.  But, I’ll certainly give it a try!

  • Oribe -Dry texturizing spray

Do you see a favorite product here? What was in your Birchbox? I’d love to know!

    The lip colour is pretty but I am passing on that formula. The mini Balm blush is so adorable.

    I think it’s a great box! I would use just about everything in it. I’d love to try that StriVectin eye cream, and I’m a big fan of Stila liquid lippies & I’d wear that shade in the summer

      The eye cream is really nice. It’s rich, but absorbs fast.

    The yellow was SO hard to capture on camera! We got a lot of the same samples, I was so sad to see theBalm sample was so teeny tiny but I’m obsessed with the Oribe spray!

      It is teeny, but oddly enough I find that it lasts a while as a purse product for touch ups.

    I got a few of the same things you did. The Stila lipstick is kind of dry feeling, but it helps if you put a light layer of balm on and let it soak in first before applying it.

    That’s a pretty good selection (especially compared to the Canadian Birchboxes.) The Oribe spray is supposed to be amazing!

      It’s really pretty! I think it would look good on a huge range of skin tones.
