July Birchbox Unboxing

Hello!  I am so sorry for being so behind on life and blogging.  But like I said last week, I'm off all week this week so I'm kicking this day off with a bang!  I'm anticipating posting twice today as long as everything cooperates, and I should have my first makeup tutorial up!  Woohoo!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I had a wrestling show on Saturday night.  It must have been 100+ degrees in that building.  I did my hair and makeup all nice and it just was miserable in there.  No air conditioning, only fans, but luckily a huge storm rolled through towards the end of the show cool things down.

Anyway, I wanted to come and post my July Birchbox so let's get on with it, shall we?


Birchbox Bobby Pins | What:  We designed these patterned pins to add style to summer hair with minimal effort.  How:  Jazz up simple ponytails, or use to secure errant bangs or layers.

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Get Naked | What:  Long-lasting, non-drying pigment that won't come off on your drink (or significant other).  How:  Sweep onto lips.  Use the built-in mirror for easier application.

Side note:  I love this stuff.  It's feels absolutely amazing on the lips (which is nice in nude lipsticks).  I can't say that it lasts forever but a decent time.  I also have no idea what "built-in mirror" they're referring to because I can't seem to find one.

purminerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 | What:  This clinically proven antiaging formula moisturizes, brightens, and evens skin tone.  How:  Apply a small amount onto face after cleansing.

Benta Berry G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream | What:  A French best seller, this cream both hydrates and purifies, thanks to blueberry and dead nettle.  How:  Morning and night, massage into face after cleansing.

Kerastase Bain Chroma Riche - Cleanse & Masque Chroma Riche | What:  This super-charged duo hydrates and protects color-treated, damaged hair follicles. How:  Apply a quarter-sized amount of the shampoo onto wet hair, work into a lather, and rinse.  Next, smooth on a small amount of the mask, let sit for 5-10 minutes, rinse out with warm water.

Aaand that's it!  Hopefully if all goes well I'll be back later tonight with my ipsy bag and tutorial!
