July Empties

We are quickly nearing the end of July, wow it went by fast! I finished up a few good products this moth and thought it would do a quick mini review of each!

1. Macadamia Flawless 6-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner 

I was a bit skeptical of this one at first, so I chose to test out the smaller-sized version before committing to a full size. It doesn't lather at all, but it's actually amazing! If you need to simplify your hair routine and clean out your hair from product-overload, grab one of these!

2. Neutrogena Skin-clearing Mineral Powder

I bought this along with the matching liquid foundation and concealer pen, and I loved all three! As far as drugstore face-makeup goes, Neutrogena has some of the best products! All three are made with salicylic acid, which fights breakouts throughout the day!

3. Maybelline Master Precise Liner

In the realm of eyeliner pens, this one is a strong contender! It doesn't stay all day, but longer than most drugstore options, and it has one of the thinnest tips, which makes it great for getting the perfect cat eye!

4. Benefit They're Real Mascara

I wrote about this mascara in my Rollerlash vs They're Real faceoff, and I'm writing about it again because it's still, in my opinion, one of the best mascaras on the market. It has incredible separation and lengthening power! 

5. Aveeno Active Naturals Nourish + Moistuize Shampoo and Conditioner

Last but not least, I picked up these two because I'm a cult follower of Aveeno's Positively Radiant Moisturizer and I wanted to test out their other products! I can't say they were "life changing" but they were very good, and I could tell a definite difference in the overall quality of my hair. I would absolutely recommend these!

What products have you emptied this month?

July Birchbox Unboxing

First off, the box itself this month is stunning, and the products overall are great! I thought I would do a little first impressions/mini reviews of each!

1. Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner

     I'm a huge fan of this liner, and already own a full size, but this tiny sample is perfect for keeping in my purse for a touch up! (not that I'd need it, this liner has got some serious staying power!)

2. Davines MINU ShampooConditioner, and Hair Serum 

     I've never heard of this brand or product before, but it's specially made for color-treated hair! Stay tuned for a review!

3. Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid

     One of my favorite BB Creams (which I'm sadly now too pale for) is made by Dr. Jart+, however, I have yet to test out their skincare! I'm excited to try this one!

4. LA FRESH Makeup Removing Wipes

     The fact that these wipes are biodegradable is amazing! They're fantastic at removing stubborn makeup too! Only drawback is they're about double the cost of my trusty Simple makeup wipes. 

5. stila Look at Me Liquid Lipstick

     Major disappointment. I was so excited to see this in my box that I used it immediately. My first impression was that it had amazing pigmentation, but felt a little odd on my lips. After about an hour, my lips were completely dried out, the lipstick was cracked and looked awful. I would not recommend trying this one.
