Cynthia Rowley July Birchbox

I signed up for birchbox a couple months ago after seeing a few bloggers' posts about theirs. I couldn't resist and I'm glad I didn't! In fact, I bought a second subscription for my mom, too ;)

I've been perusing everyone's blogs on their birchboxes and thought I'd share mine since I haven't found anyone else that got exactly the same thing.

I received:
  • Joya FvsS Composition No. 1 Parfum
  • Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse multi-usage dry oil
  • Philosophy Purity 1-step facial cleanser
  • Redken Shine Flash 02 hair mist
  • YBF Beauty Automatic brow pencil in universal taupe
  • Kind Almond & Apricot bar
I haven't tried anything out yet except the Kind bar (which I ate this morning on my way to bring my son for his entrance testing for the school we want him to attend in the fall) and the brow pencil. The bar was very good and I've been tempted to purchase one before so it was nice to get one in my birchbox. My 5 year old liked it, too!

As far as the ybf beauty brow pencil goes, I'm fairly impressed. I have black hair and getting the right color brow pencil/wax/shadow is extremely hard. Too dark and you look like a clown, too light and you look ... well, not good. Anyway, I did find that this blended into my brows pretty well. I'll have to review it a bit more carefully before deciding if I love it and suggest it or just like it. I was in a rush and trying to get out the door while the boys and hubs waited for me. They're always waiting on me ;) I am lame and didn't take a picture when I tried the ybf beauty automatic brow pencil, but next time I do an EOTD (eye of the day) I will definitely make sure to point it out if I use it.

I promise I'll take pictures of my birchbox next time. I keep the boxes because I'm weird, but I've taken the bar and brow pencil out so I'll just wait for August's birchbox. I'm looking forward to it, I love the themed birchboxes. I wonder what next month will bring...

What did you lovely makeup lovers get? If you haven't already signed up for birchbox, I would highly recommend you do! It is so reasonably priced and so much fun to get.
