July Birchbox [BB x Glamour]

On Tuesday I received my July Birchbox!
Basically, Birchbox is a $10 monthly subscription filled with beauty samples.  This month Birchbox teamed up with Glamour magazine and put together a box that focuses on the five senses.  Each product fit into either see, touch, feel, hear, or smell.  I really love the concept!  Here is what I received in my July box!

I have a few of these lip glazes that I bought from Sephora, but I haven't bought any in awhile because they can be pricy at $22 for one.  However Birchbox has a set of three for only $12!  I am defiantly going to be purchasing these!  The color I received is not one that I usually go for, but I actually really like it!

I'm not a shimmery bronzer person at all, but the color of this one is gorgeous!  To apply it I just took a fluffy brush and dusted it on my cheekbones and temples and did a great job of highlighting them.

I used this last night and my hair now is incredibly soft!  I've used deep conditioning treatments before but never a hair mask.  The results were better then I thought they would be!  The price of this is a little more than I usually spend on hair products, so I'm going to try to find something similar at the drugstore.

Hello is a summery scent containing notes of meyer lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, forsythia, plumeria, verbena, vanilla and musk.  I love it!  Anything with vanilla and musk gets me!  They company has a really cute story and they are eco-friendly.  I think I will be purchasing this size one to keep in my purse!

Lifestyle Extras:
A pair of earbuds for hear
This couldn't have come at a better time!  I am always losing earphones and these are so pretty - neon green and pink!


LaraBar in Bananas Foster for taste
I don't like bananas so I gave this treat to my mom.  She said it was just okay.
