The bag this month was an icy blue, slippery material. I thought it was cute but, not particularly “July-ish.” It seems more fit for January or December?
The postcard was Independence Day color-schemed and always, super pointless.
What Was In My Bag?!
Scalp Revival™ Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner
It’s made with antioxidant-packed plant and fruit extracts and vitamin-rich oils that your scalp will soak right up. Coconut oil conditions and hydrates while a blend of peppermint, spearmint, and tea tree oils helps reduce itchiness, irritation, and balance your scalp’s pH levels. Binchotan charcoal absorbs excess oil and detoxes pores by drawing out dirt and impurities.
My Review: Ew, this really ruined my hair. I massaged it into my scalp like it instructed me to, knowing full well that my hair hates conditioner. It created and left over so much residue and build-up. It was disgusting. Also, it was weird to have a minty-feeling scalp.

Front Of The Line PRO Eye Pencil in Black
This creamy pencil glides on like a dream to create any eye look, from sharp lines to a super smudged-out smoky eye. Sensitive eyes? This baby is ophthalmologist tested and totally safe for contact lens wearing ipsters.
My Review: Ooo! I was starting to think regular, non-liquid eyeliners weren’t made anymore! How very exciting to finally receive one! I liked that it’s the twist up design so there’s need to sharpen it to get more product. The eyeliner is easy to use, glides on smoothly and very black — which I loved for my waterline. Too bad it started smudging underneath my eyes after only wearing it for an hour. In the photo above, my eye on the right is the only one with the colored in waterline.

La Beaute Fatale
Lipware in Vibrate
It’s very pigmented, which means one swipe is all you need for a playful vibrant lip look. The creamy formula is packed with vitamin E, which means it’s extra moisturizing and comfy.
My Review: The color of this lipstick was way more purple than it appears to be on my lips in the photo above. It was a really nice, unique shade. Unfortunately, I am not comfortable swatching lipsticks like this one on my arm because I don’t want to smoosh or crack it somehow. It was easy to apply and glided on smoothly, with lots of pigmentation at the first swipe. After wearing it for a little over an hour, the color was still there. It transferred onto my cup every time I took a sip but, it somehow never looked smudged or faded on my lips. It did, however, start to BURN after awhile. I was so sad to have to wipe it off… I wonder how long it could have lasted? Boyfriend said I had a pink tint to my lips in the morning still, too.

Pressed Eyeshadow in Harmony
It goes on smooth, blends easily, and lasts for hours and hours. It’s super-buildable and won’t crease when you layer it on. We love it on our lids, but it gave us the prettiest peachy glow when we swirled it on our cheeks.
My Review: I was stoked to see a different color eyeshadow in a sub box besides gold for once! Ooh, how creamy, shimmery, and pretty this was! I wish that it showed up better in the photo. It was so glowy and easy to blend. It also didn’t take too much product to see some nice pigmentation. Loved it.

Dramatically Different Hydrating Jelly
This lightweight, oil-free formula hydrates your skin’s surface (and helps it stay hydrated) with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed cake, and barley and cucumber extracts. The light, gel texture feels so cool and refreshing. Not the least bit greasy!
My Review: This really is fragrance-free! No scent whatsoever which is amazing for those of us with sensitive skin. I loved that the consistency was almost liquid and that it was clear instead of opaque. It dried onto my skin instantaneously but, did leave some tackiness. A little goes a long way with this product — the first time I tried it, I used entirely too much. It kept my face hydrated throughout the entire day but after a shower the next afternoon, my skin hurt and thirsted for more of it which I didn’t like. It just isn’t as strong/effective as the moisturizers I prefer and I wouldn’t be surprised if it contains one of those “addicting” ingredients in it.
