Opening my Birchbox is like opening a birthday present. This month it really was my birthday! So my Birchbox was extra special.

Here's what I got!

 

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain

The color wasn't for me.. a bit too cherry. BUT this lip stain was like silk on my lips, i'd definitely be interested in trying another shade!

Catherine Malandrino Style de Paris

  I threw this little sample bottle in my purse right away, and it's saved me a couple times already! Sweet, fruity and sophisticated. I absolutely love it, but sadly ... this perfume is outside of my price range.

Jasmine Seven Wipes

These wipes are great! They're like baby wipes, but without that baby wipe smell. Perfect for when you're on the go and need a little help freshening up. They're anti-bacterial and smell terrific, extremely useful in the hot & humid swamp that is D.C.

Mally Beauty- Volumizing Mascara

Celebrity makeup artist Mally Roncal really knows how to make eyelashes look amazing. This mascara goes on easy, makes my eyelashes perk up instantly. Most importantly, they stay full and glorious all day long, which is hard to do!

 

 

 

 

Gilchrist & Soames London Collection Body Lotion

  I am in love with this lotion. I've kept it at my desk, use it everyday, and there is still more lotion to use! It's a Birchbox sample miracle. This lotions leaves your skin clean and fresh, even after you've commuted on the metro through 80% humidity. This will definitely be purchased when I run out.

 

 

 

Overall, I'm very happy with my June Birchbox samples. Thank ya Birchbox, birthday month success! Did you love yours? Can't wait for my July Birchbox!
