July Birchbox

It's Birchbox time again, and this time Birchbox teamed up with glamour to bring all five senses to life with some great trial sized beauty samples and lifestyle extras. So there's a little something to see, smell, feel, taste, and hear.

Birchbox Exclusive | Earbuds // These neon pink and green earphones are a great switch for the regular white ones and come with a pretty cool playlist "Getting Pretty."

Color Club | Blue-Ming // I love the color mint and it seems to be the only color I want on my nails recently. About a month ago I bought Sally Hansen's Mint Sorbet, and while that mint is a lighter and more subdued color, the Color Club Blue-Ming is bright and has a much bluer mint color to it.

Eyeko | Skinny Liquid Eyeliner // I don't think I've ever had such luck with a liquid liner. It goes on quick, is smudge free, and is nice and dark. It's great for making cat eyes, to which I totally had my eyeliner winged out for the IMAX Batman Premiere.

Supergoop! | City Sunscreen Serum // This daily moisturizer has SPF 30+ with a PA+++ rating (top of the line.) This smells and feels more as sunscreen than a moisturizer, but is completely non-greasy. Love it.

Harvey Prince | Eau Flirt // With notes of pumpkin and lavender, this perfume is "not in your face with fragrance and doesn't smell like an old women" according to Gerred. "It's nice and mild."

Tea Forte | minteas // I've always had a battle with mint since it makes me sneeze (I have no idea why.) But these mints don't have that overpowering minty taste of wintergreen or spearmint, but of ginger pear instead. Ginger mints are not only great tasting, but are apparently supposed to help you focus.

On a side note, I opened July's box up with Gerred like we were sports casters. By the end he was interested in the entire concept and wanted to know if there was a Birchbox for Men. Which there is! Birchbox is trying out a new beta test which gives out man essentials (not make-up) like shaving essentials, face wash, cologne, and tech products. So we signed him up right after and he'll be getting his box next week.

So if you're interested in getting Birchbox for only $10 a month sign up for it or gift it to a friend here.
