It's the last day of the month, and I'm now reviewing my June and July Birchboxes. --;; I know...
Well, to start...I was planning on cancelling my Birchbox subscription after the June box.

This was my June Birchbox. It included: Comodynes Self-Tanning Wipe, John Varvatos Star USA Fragrance, Eyeko Fat Stick, theBalm Cosmetics Stainiac, Likewise Facial Moisturizer + Sun Protectant, and a Tili Plastic Zip Travel Bag.
I mean, honestly, I was really happy I got the full-sized Eyeko Fat Stick. I had been wanting to try one for a while, and I finally got one. But I was pretty disappointed by the rest of the box just because they're mostly things I would never buy or try. It's probably why it's taken me so long to review this box. Anyways, I had planned on cancelling after one more box. Then....
I received my July Glamour Birchbox.

I definitely changed my mind after the July Glamour Birchbox. Included was: Harvey Prince Eau Flirt Lavender Pumpkin Fragrance, Gloss Moderne High Gloss Masque, Color Club Summer Pastels in Blue-Ming, a Larabar (my cousin at this and said it was pretty good), Manna Kadar Cosmetics Sheer Glo Shimmer Lotion, Suki Balancing Regimen, and their bonus Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds.
I don't know why, it was probably the Color Club that was tucked in, but Birchbox sure turned it around this July for me. After a couple months of blah boxes, I finally scored a good one!
Here are some things I did with Blue-Ming while my cousins were here.
Color Club Summer Pastels Blue-Ming Swatch
I used Blue-Ming as the base color, then I took Wet N' Wild Blue Moon and painted half the nail with it. Then I went back with a toothpick (I seemed to have misplaced my dotting tool --;;) for the dots. I used the opposite color of the base for the dots.
For this one, I used Blue-Ming as the base color and took Wet N' Wild Blue Moon to dot around the border.
Simple. These both took me about 45 minutes to complete. Don't forget base and top coat!
