July Birchbox!

July has been such a busy month for me, hence the reason for not blogging much. Many birthdays this month, including mine, my anniversary, and I'm moving into my apartment! So many things to do, such little time.

But, I now have a little time to blog! So I was pretty impressed with this month's BB, although not all of the items really fit my taste. The collab boxes are always the best ones!

This months box was in collaboration with Glamour Magazine and had the theme of The 5 Senses.

Tea Forte Minteas Cocoa Mate

Honestly I hated these things. My boyfriend on the other hand loved them. There were a bunch in the pack though, and it was a nice sized sample. I heard that many people didn't like these though. Tea companies shouldn't try and make mints...

3 Pack- $9.95

Blinc Mascara

This was an awesome sized sample, and I wanted to love it sooo bad. But ever since I got Benefit They're Real, nothing else compares. This mascara really did nothing for my lashes. Which was very sad to me because I love having different mascaras!

Full Size- $26.00

Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint

I can't figure out why, but when I got this I immediately wanted to trade. Annnnd no one wanted to trade back.. So I've decided that maybe I could try this. It is the bigger sized sample, which is awesome! I haven't tried this yet but am going to soon. Once I do I will try to do a review and have swatches. 

Full Size- $38.00

Alterna Bamboo UV+ Color Protection Fade-Proof Fluid

This is another thing I automatically tried trading. I don't really like hair oils and those kind of hair products. Not that they suck, I just have naturally healthy hair. Although I did dye my hair ombre recently and it fried the crap out of my ends. ): But even with putting oils on my ends it seems like nothing is helping it. I might end up trying this, but I'm not sure yet.

Full Size- $24.00

Harvey Prince Hello

This was the only thing I loved in the box. And normally I don't like the perfume samples because there is such a big scent range that I don't like.(I know, I'm picky. My boyfriend always complains!) But this perfume, the scent is sooooo wonderful. I'm terrible at explaining perfumes so I won't even try. But seriously, I LOVE it. So much that when I'm out of the sample I will probably end up buying full size. 

Full Size- $55.00

Birchbox Earbuds

This is the only thing in my box that I was actually really disappointed in. Seriously, the sound quality in these are TERRIBLE. And it's not like I expected Beats Audio or Bose quality, but I at least expected them to be up to par with the cheapies you buy at the store. No. Just no. Birchbox, please don't make something you can't deliver on.

Full Size- $10.00

So I guess I didn't really like many things in this box, but I did think that they were very versatile and very good choices. The only things that weren't really up to par was the mascara and the earbuds. I also love dramatic lashes, which is probably the reason I don't like the blinc mascara. But I definitely feel like BB has been stepping up their game lately, which is exciting!
