I got my Glamour sponsored July Birchbox *Insert grin here*
Last month's Gossip Girl sponsored box left me on the fence about my box subscription, and although I didn't get a nail polish AGAIN, I was satisfied with the box this month. I have actually used EVERYTHING in this box- a first.
This month's box was centered around the theme of "the five senses". The goal was to stimulate Sight, Sound, Taste, Touch, and Smell. While some of the items make perfect sense, I had to work hard to fit some senses together *Giggle* But, even still, I do like my box!

So here's what's inside:
- Sight: Stila Lip Glaze in Lights: (full-size) $12 for 3
- Sound: Birchbox Exclusive Earbuds: (exclusive) $0
- Taste:Uber LaraBar "Bananas Foster": (sample) $13 for 5
- Touch: Gloss Moderne High Gloss Masque: (full-size) $39 for 4oz.
- Smell: Harvey Prince "Hello": (sample) $12
The positives:The box is worth about $46.
I really enjoyed the bar, I literally scarfed it down (lol partly because I didn't eat all day). The perfume sample was nice. I've actually been wearing it since I got it. The scent is really perfect for the summer. It boasts hints of lemon, white grapefruit, and pink plumeria and you know what, you can actually smell them! The gloss feels like whipped cream. I tried it on my hair and it feels great. It isn't greasy or heavy at all.
The negatives:The earbuds that I got were defective. I actually plan on contacting them about this asap. Other than that, really was satisfied with that I got.
Overall, the box was a good one. I like everything I got, it's just unfortunate I cannot use my earbuds. I'm still considering re-taking the quiz to see if my next box shifts, I really don't know why I don't get nail polishes *Frowns*.
