Birchbox June 2012 Box #15

First of all, I just want to say how much I love Birchbox and their customer service. When I checked my account the other day it displayed Box #3 (which I honestly was not the most excited about). I got my box today and it was Box #15, so I called customer service and they fixed my feedback as well as gave me a free August box for the inconvenience. You can tell that Birchbox will do anything to fix problems with their customers. If you're not familiar with the multiple Birchboxes, you can check out what I use: Zadidoll's monthly BB list on Anyway, on to the box...

Inside the box:
boscia Green Tea Blotting Linens (25 Sheets)
Juliette Has a Gun Vengeance Extreme (vial)
stila lip glaze in Lights
Gloss Moderne High-Gloss Masque (no size listed)
Lifestyle Extras:
Tea Forte minteas in Ginger Pear (full size)
Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds (pink and blue)

The Stila is a pretty nude with lots of shimmer. Unfortunately, it has the problem that all glosses have, and why I thought about trading: stickiness. I don't want to worry about everything sticking to my lips when I'm out. However, my curiosity got the better of me so I swatched it and gave it a try. It gets less sticky as you wear it and lasts about an hour on me. The amount of shimmer is so much that I won't be able to wear this on a daily basis.

The left is a thin layer, the right a bit thicker to get more color.

With my points from my first Birchbox I gifted myself a second three month sub since I cancelled my Glossybox. I just couldn't help myself. So I should be getting another box in the next week or so! I am truly addicted.

P.S. You can sign up for Birchbox here (Disclaimer: I get referral points).

Glitter Toes

I am a true girly girl. I really like glitter and pink and all things sparkly, but I've never been able to get good solid glitter on my nails. So, I was thrilled when my toes ended up like this:

Solid, pink glitter! For under $5. Under the glitter is Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Color in Rosy Future with Wet n' Wild Wild Shine in Sparked. I found the Wet n' Wild at my local drug store for 99 cents. I'm now going to go back and get every other glitter color that they have.

It took about three coats to get a solid glitter coat and I put on an Essie top coat. I went swimming today and it didn't even think about chipping.
