Birchbox trade!

As I said in my last post, I traded my Pixi eyeshadow pen with a nice lady on

This is what I traded her for:

The polish is Color Club Blue-Ming. 

The color is actually a bit greener than this, but it's still such a beautiful color. I actually already bought another bottle off of Birchbox since this is only a mini. This is my favorite color, and is seriously SO pretty. My two best friends are also currently wearing the color. (:

The other product I got is a Stila Lip Glaze in Pinata.

This is the gloss over a *very very* sheer application of theBalm Staniac in Beauty Queen. It is actually glittery, which doesn't show up in these pictures. I really love it though. It's a beautiful color to go with a darker lip or just by itself. 

Do you ever trade things in your Birchbox? What was the last thing you traded?

August Birchbox!

Yay, my August BB came in the mail today! From reading the BB thread on, I had seen so many crappy boxes for this month. Then yesterday I was bad and peeked. BUT, I'm happy I did because my box is awesome this month!!!

Beauty Fixation Makeup Remover Swabs

So, this is missing from the box picture, and has a crappy picture. Why? Because mine came open and this is the picture I sent to Birchbox, yet a bit cropped here. I also used the other swab without thinking about taking a box picture. Whoops! But anyways, I liked these swabs. They would be a really good thing to have in your purse for touch ups, or if you're really messy with eyeliner or mascara (TOTALLY ME). They're probably not the best value, but I might buy some just for my purse. 

24 Swabs- $5.00

Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen in Brun Beam

I've seen the Pixi brand in Target but I've never tried it. And still won't be seeing as I am trading this! I would use it, but I have so many brown eyeshadows and had the chance to trade for Color Club Blue-Ming which I am dying to get. I think this is probably a nice eyeshadow, just not what I was wanting!

Full Size- $18

Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy La Fleur

This. Scent. Is. To. Die. For. Seriously, I LOVE this perfume. It's like fruit and flowers made sweet babies together. I'm obsessed with it... And a spray top.... Birchbox loves me this month. Seriously though..... I really love this, and everyone should at least try it!

Full Size/2.5 Oz- $70

Miss Jessie's Quick Curls

Really? Another product I love? The Birchbox gods have answered my prayers and sent me an awesome box. Girls, if you have curly or wavy hair that needs tamed, Miss Jessie's is your answer. I used this today and I had NO frizz. None. I always have frizz, and this tamed it! I also ordered samples of Pillow Soft Curls and something else from them (oops, I can't remember!). You can get two free samples from their website. You have to enter your card number but it won't charge and it can be a prepaid card. And they are huge samples. 1 oz for most, some are .5 but still pretty big! Any way, this sample was really big, 2oz which is worth 8 bucks.And I've never really found products that work well with my hair so I will probably purchase one of their products!

Full Size- $32

Schick Hydro Silk Razor

I already have this razor, but let me tell you, it is awesome. I got it as a free sample a long time ago, and have run out of refills. I was about to buy more until I found out this would be in our box! I really do love this razor and it gives me the closest shave. Not sure what is so special about it but it really does work well!

Full Size- $9.99

So obviously I LOVED this Birchbox. Many people were unhappy this month, but I'm glad I got things that I loved, especially the Quick Curls. What did you get in your BB this month, and did you love it?
