I am a little late on the July Birchbox review. But it’s because it didn’t show up until the third week of July. I was sorta pleased with this month’s box. One awesome product in the midst of a few duds.

So far, my favorite product has been the eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner. Other than the fun e.l.f. gold glitter liner for New Years, I haven’t used liquid liner in literally a decade! This one makes me super happy because it comes in a deep purple. It’s not too over the top that you look like an idiot. It’s actually a really great color for blue eyes. The application was very easy and it didn’t smudge at all… even after a full night of serious dancing! Plus, Birchbox was generous enough to give a full size sample. This one definitely gets an A+ in my book.

The next product was Kerastase leave-in conditioner. I 100% used it wrong the first time. So the jury is still out on this one.

I just used the Vivant Skincare Acid 3-in-1 Wash for the first time today. So far, my skin feels thoroughly cleansed, but without any sort of burn that I would expect would come with an acid wash. I’ll keep you posted if I have any bad reactions. They say to only use it every few days, so this may be one that takes a few weeks before you notice anything.

This purminerals CC Cream was okay. I liked the Supergoop CC cream from a few months ago much better. This one went on a little more oily and it faded pretty early in the day. Overall, I did not enjoy it much.

The last bonus product was these Birchbox Bobby Pins. They are actually rather large (you can see the scale in the first picture) and can look a little clown-like on your head. But I really liked the color and design… so I went ahead and wore them.

All in all, this Birchbox was fairly good. I think the eyeko liner was so exciting for me that it’s balancing out the less-than-stellar products I received in the rest of the box.

I keep seeing others who have received lipstick in their boxes and I am just waiting for the day that happens! What was your favorite product in your Birchbox this month?
