Birchbox - June 2013

Subscription purchased by me, affiliate links within post

What was in this month's box:
Color Club Wanderlust Collection nail polish in "London Calling"
LAQA & Co. Lil' Lip pencil in "Pinkman"
Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser
Davines 3-Step System: Love Smoothing Shampoo, Love Smoothing Conditioner, OIL/OIL

Color Club Wanderlust Collection nail polish in "London Calling"

I love, love, love this mint green nail polish! It has quickly become my favorite go-to color this Summer. "London Calling" is part of Color Club's Wanderlust nail polish Collection. I thought the nail polishes fit very well into the theme, which I found to be pretty refreshing. 

The other colors in the collection include: 

London Calling - sunny green
Reign in Spain - fiery coral
Pardon My French - lavender
Mod in Manhattan - brilliant off-white

LAQA & Co. Lil' Lip Pencil in "Pinkman"

Pictured is actually the second sample I received. The first one came splattered all over my box. Thankfully, Birchbox was able to send me a replacement sample (which is not what usually happens whenever I've received a damaged sample). The pencil itself was very nice. "Pinkman" was a super pigmented, bold berry that can be built up or toned down to your liking. It wasn't streaky at all, which is definitely a bonus when it comes to lip pencils! This lip pencil is available as a duo set on the Birchbox website.

Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser

I love trying new skin products, especially when it comes to exfoliants and cleansers. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw this foaming exfoliating cleanser in this month's box. Upon opening the jar, I was hit with a strong lemon scent. It is not overpowering at all, but very sweet. The cleanser itself is very lightweight and does leave my face feeling very clean. I am in LOVE with this little exfoliating cleanser.

Davines 3-Step System

The Davines 3-step system is a trio of samples to help combat frizzy hair. Perfect for my hair! The trio includes:

Davines Love Smoothing Shampoo
Davines Love Smoothing Conditioner
Davines OIL/OIL

I  have yet to try this trio out, but will update now that my current shampoo/conditioners have run out. Hopefully this trio works!

This month's box is still a bit up in the air for me, but I found a few things I truly enjoyed that might even replace current favorites.

FOTD - Movie Night!

My guy and I went out to watch "This Is the End" a few weeks ago. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. If you've been iffy about watching it, go check it out! It's hilarious!

Anywho, here's the look I wore out for the special occasion.

Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer in Tan
MAC Desert Rose
MAC Sunbasque
MAC Rubenesque
MAC Amberlights, Swiss Chocolate + Soft Brown, Vibrant Grape, Ricepaper
Urban Decay eyeliner in Demolition
Tarte mascara in Lights, camera, lashes!

Rimmel London lipstick by Kate in 104

Here is my look under different, better lighting. 

I wish I'd gotten better pictures of this look! The colors are off on those other pictures no matter how I tweak them. The lighting in my house is frustrating sometimes. New goal for the end of this year: get better lighting!

Have you gone to see "This Is the End" yet?

Quick Update!

Hello guys and dolls!

I just wanted to post a quick update:

School is currently kicking my ass. Math has never been my thing and I'm taking an accelerated speed Stats class right now.

I do have a few posts lined up, which should be coming up soon (next week).

Wish me luck on my test this Wednesday!

Hope you are all having a wonderful (and less stressful) Summer!!
