It's crazy how quickly a month passes.



Birchbox

- R+Co DEATH VALLEY Dry Shampoo

- The Beauty Crop Fabulous Flocking Lashes Waterproof Mascara

- Vita Liberata Fabulous Self-Tanning Gradual Lotion

- COOLA Mineral SPF 30 Daydream Makeup Primer

- Living proof. Perfect hair Day (PhD) In-Shower Styler

Overall thoughts: Pretty disappointing box from Birchbox this month, when it's consistently strong, normally. The only things I might find useful are the self-tanning lotion and the in-shower styler, but I'm not exactly itching to try them, either. The dry shampoo, mascara and makeup primer are all things I likely won't use.


Ipsy

- Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Posh

- Beauty & Pin-Ups Fearless Hair Rescue Masque

- Pixi by Petra Endless Silky Eye Pen in OpalOvercoat

- Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette

- Adesse New York Organic Infused Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Surfer Girl

Overall thoughts: A pretty OK box, though there's nothing here I'm overly excited about. I'm pretty much overdosed on black eyeliner at this point -- I like it and use it, but how many do I really need??? -- and while I do love nail polish, I'm kind of tired of getting it every month. But at least I have a chance of using everything in this month's Glam Bag, which is a lot more than I can say for Birchbox this month.


Sephora Play!

- treStiQue Highlight + Perfect Multipurpose Stick in Maldives Luminescent

- GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper in Clear

- Nudestix Magnetic Matte Lip Color in Greystone

- Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Clay Cleanser

- Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt

- Maison Margiela 'Replica' Beach Walk

Overall thoughts: Another disappointing showing from a normally strong contender. I like the cleanser and scrub, but the highlighter and lip plumper are things I likely won't get much use out of, and the lipstick is okay, though I'm not really crazy about matte lipsticks in general.

Winner this month: Ispy. It was boring, but at least mostly serviceable, whereas the other two had a number of misses. This won't change my mind about canceling Ipsy when my annual subscription is up, though.
