Unboxing: Birchbox July 2015

This month the sample choice was a littler different. It was a trio of Stila Liquid Lipsticks that everyone got, you just got to choose the color. Handy really because I used to have one of these liquid lipsticks that got kidnapped by my sister so I got to the choose the color I used to have again!

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Birchbox it is one of those monthly beauty sample boxes where they send you a box of 5-6 (sometimes even 7 with bonus extras) samples and deluxe samples. Occasionally there will be full size products too! The brands they send are all fairly high-end and they have a point system and customer service staff that just can't be beat. For $10 a month you are able to select a sample from a select group of choices and have more surprises delivered to you based on your beauty profile! Have I convinced you to sign up yet? If so I would love it if you would do it through my referral link here! Feel free to also go to if you want to look around without any strings attached to me.
The theme for July 2015 was Go Bold and I love the box design this month!
stila look at me liquid lipstick trio
Full Size Value: $20 | Sample Size Value: $6
I chose the color Beso which is the bright red. I used to have this and it's a phenomenal product. It goes on liquid like a gloss but then it sets like a lipstick and it's just there. Like it survives sleeping in it overnight and I didn't have any issue with it rubbing onto my white pillowcases.
COOLA® SPF 30 Organic Makeup Setting Spray
Full Size Value: $36 | Sample Size Value: $7.20
How funny I just talked about makeup setting sprays in my summer essentials post (which was all over the place, sorry about that) and here I am getting a makeup setting spray in my Birchbox! This one is formulated with SPF, green tea and aloe which I can imagine is very refreshing and if I like it I may pick up the full size bottle of it!
dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant
Full Size Value: $78 | Sample Size Value: $19.50
I've actually had this scrub before from an Ipsy months ago and I was a fan. It's very pricey and this sample lasts forever so I'm excited to get another one.
Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray
Full Size Value: $39 | Sample Size Value: $4.58
I'm a fan of this brand and while normally I don't like hair product I will occassionally experiemtn with a beach spray so I'll try it out. The bottle is really pretty too!
MDSolarSciences™ Mineral Crème SPF 50 Broad Spectrum UVA-UVB Sunscreen
Full Size Value: $30 | Sample Size Value: $4.41
I still haven't learned my lesson when it comes to sunblock, the sticky feeling just does not encourage me to use it. Someone will be happy with this sample though, it will be perfect to throw in the purse for touch ups.

Value of Box: $41.69
