“Blame the school calendar, but every June we still get giddy about dusting off our suitcases and planning an itinerary. Even when we can’t hop on a plane, train, or automobile, we get our fix in other ways—from transporting films to globe-trotting beauty products. This month’s box is devoted to products that will indulge your inner jetsetter, starting with a flattering lip and cheek stain, that will outlast your next long-haul flight.” – Birchbox
CONTENTS (May vary box to box):
John Varvatos Star U.S.A. ($55 for 1.7 oz. | IN BOX: .04 oz. $1.29 value). A pretty standard men’s cologne which was still a nice addition to this month’s box.
Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream ($16 for 1.25 oz. | IN BOX: .1oz. $1.28 value). I already own a tube of this multi-purpose cream (its in my purse). It gets used on my cuticles, my lips, my heels and my kids (works well on eczema and sunburned cheeks).
Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner in Black (IN BOX: Full Sized $15). This has a thicker felt-tip pen applicator that allows for a thick or thin line. I like to add a little close to the lash line to fill in spaces between lashes which give them a thicker, longer appearance.
BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages by Cynthia Rowley ($11 for 2 Boxes | IN BOX: 1 Box of 20 $5.50). Now I’ve seen it all. Designer Band-Aids. They’re pure genius and I LOVE them. Who doesn’t need Band Aids? Now I don’t have to borrow my 2 year old’s Dora Band-Aids!
theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen ($17 for Full Size | IN BOX: .04 Sample Size $2.25). Has a jelly-like texture (vs. the liquid texture of Benetint) which makes this more portable. Beauty Queen is a Cherry Kool-Aid color and universally sheer. I’m not sure I would buy a full size, but the little one is great for my purse.
Melvita Floral Water in Rose ($22 for 6.76 | IN BOX: .95 oz. $3.09). I’ll be traveling to Vegas next month (Yay!) and this mini mist is perfect for my travel bag! I’ll also save the bottle for my huge Kiehl’s Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol-Free Toner ($62 for 16.9 oz.) and possible get a full size of this nicely scented rose mist as well.
