Chic Couture-July Beauty Boxes!

Hey there!
Today I'm sharing  my July Beauty Boxes! I get three....Birchbox, Ipsy, and Julep. I've been so pleased with all 3 lately! And of course if you sign up under any link to them here on my blog then it helps me! Hint, hint!

(Monthly nail polish subscription with some beauty products for $19.99.  You have the option to skip a month. They do have reward points called Jules and a referral program.)
 July's theme was California Coast and had pretty beachy colors and their Sea Salt Texture Spray and Beach Tonic Dry Body Oil.  I chose the box with both products and then added on sea salt texture with a little pretty! Both products smell and work good! And yes I did take them to the beach with me because I got them the day before we left! I shared this on Julep's Facebook page and then they shared on Instagram and it totally made my day!

What I got:
Kérastase Bain Chroma Riche - Cleanse
Kérastase Masque Chroma Riche - Treat
BENTA BERRY G-1 Moisturizing Face Cream
Birchbox Bobby Pins
Pür Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40
ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick Trio

You know Birchbox really does have a great points system and I haven't really taken advantage of it so I'm going to start reviewing my samples and try and buildup some points to have fun with! 
I liked the shampoo and conditioner, the conditioner more so, seemed like it really conditioned.  The CC cream does pretty good as a primer. The Benta berry cream I've put on my t-zone because it is mattifying  as well. And even though my lipstick was the nude...might be too light for smells sooo good and feels even better on! But it broke! I called them, though and they are sending me another! And I like little hair baubles every now and then.  So since Birchbox rebranded themselves seems like they are trying to listen to their customers and make adjustments. I am pleased.

And lastly...
What I got:
Sexy Hair
Weather Proof Humidity Resistant Spray
Mineral Face SPF 20 Rose Essence Tinted Moisturizer
BH Cosmetics
California Collection Eyeshadow Sample
POP Beauty
Pouty Pop Crayon
Salt Air Perfume Oil Roll On
Pink see through makeup bag

I haven't used all of them yet but I love it! The eye shadows are pretty on and the roll on is a nice beachy scent...not a sweet one...I think it's still nice. And I love the twists up so no sharpening but not sure of the color. Normally I'm all over pink but it doesn't do anything for my teeth. They look a little yellow when I tried the crayon.  I may pass it on or find a lip gloss to go over it! Or maybe whiten my teeth! Ha! (I promise they're not that bad!)

July was a good beauty box month for me!! I'm ready for August now!

Happy Friday!!

My ipsy was a bit different. I'm pleased with it still. I'm very glad I signed up for it!
