My Glamour Magazine Birchbox


Look what finally arrived in the mail yesterday! This month's Birchbox was in collaboration with Glamour magazine. The theme was celebrating your five senses of summer: colors, smells, sound, feel, and taste. I was really pleased with this box - there were a lot of items! Also, another reason why I keep my Birchbox subscription is because I get more makeup products versus my Sample Society box. Here's what I received:



Tea Forté Minteas in Lime Mojito ($2.99) | Color Club Nail Lacquer Mini in Blue-Ming (full size $8) | Boscia BB Cream SPF 27 PA++ (.35 oz/ 1.75 oz $38) | Stila Lip Glaze in Action ($22) | Annick Goutal Eau d'Hadrien perfume sample (full size $85) | Birchbox earbuds


The taste were these tea-infused mints which I thought tasted like that mint tree oil you put on your face (i.e. does NOT taste good!).
I've heard great things about this Boscia BB Cream (it was one of StyleIt's June Beauty Favorites and is on backorder!). The color is a little dark for me but it claims to be for all skin types so we'll see.


I love Stila's lip glazes! They're a really long lasting gloss but I feel like this color isn't a good match for me.

Swatched it on my Birchbox card since I'm still rocking my galaxy nails

The Color Club nail polish is from the Summer Pastels Collection and is a pretty mint color. Reminds me a lot of Essie's Mint Candy Apple.


For sound they included Birchbox exclusive earbuds and direct you to Glamour's Spotify account for great tunes.


What did you get your box this month?

  7. Oh wow - I really wish my box had included the BB cream - it's one of the first I've seen that is oil-free! But I am excited about all my goodies! Love your blog!
