Sorry that this post is so late, but I had to rearrange my schedule a bit in order to write everything I want to write but only post twice a week instead of three times like I used to.
You might be thinking, why don’t you go back to three times a week then? Well, for starters, I don’t want to do that and then end up struggling (again) to write three times a week, and I figured that I can start writing extra posts when the inspiration strikes to schedule while I’m out of the country, since I don’t think I’ll have much time or want to work on the blog while I’m in Chile with my family for six weeks!
Also, it was my birthday! So yeah, that’s a good enough excuse, right?
I’m writing this at least a week in advance, which I don’t normally tell you guys about, but I’m so proud of myself for being ahead of the game that I couldn’t help but brag!
But anyway, we’re getting a little off-track here.
This wasn’t the best month for beauty subscriptions for me, but overall, there were enough items in each one that I loved or was excited for. Looking at them now, I don’t think any box particularly stood out more than the others, so I don’t think I’ll have a favorite this month. But let’s go through them, shall we?
My Birchbox this month came with the following items:
- theBalm Cosmetics FratBoy shadow/blush.
- Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm.
- Christie Brinkley daily facial exfoliating polish.
- Templespa La La Lagoon bath and shower gel.
- Rusk texture spray.
Not too crazy about any of the items, but I’m willing to try everything except for the blush, which I just don’t have any need for.
This month, my ipsy had these for me:
- Figs & Rouge Mattifying Emulsion and Pore Refiner.
- Mai Couture Makeup Paper travel blush in Montecito.
- Smashbox full exposure mascara.
- Bdellium Tools blending brush 776.
- INSPR Beauty eyeshadow in Carnival.
I’m going to need ipsy, Birchbox AND Boxycharm to please stop sending me so much mascara that I have no idea what to do with is. PLEASE.
Lastly, my Boxycharm came with:
- Coolway leave-in treatment.
- Pur-lisse eye serum.
- Studio Makeup blush in Sahara.
- Manna priming gloss stain in All of Me.
- Luxie concealer brush 211.
If I absolutely had to pick a favorite, it would probably be this one, but that’s just because of the lip gloss (and probably the brush as well). I’m keeping the eye serum and the leave-in treatment because I’m down to give them a shot, but the blush is going to Savannah once I finally get around to sending her care package!
So that’s everything I got this month! Not the best month, but I’m not too disappointed either. What did you get this month?
