July Birchbox

LOC x Millie - Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil £9
John Frieda - Frizz Ease Anti-Frizz Primer £9.99
Nails inc. Nail Polish £15
Caudalie - Micellar Cleansing Water £15
Indeed Labs - Hydraluron Mask £19/99

July's Birchbox was in partnership with Millie Mackintosh and comes with two full size products! The product I was most excited about receiving was the LOC x Millie lip pencil, this is in such a pretty rosey pink colour, I've tried a few other LOC products so I knew I would love this! It's a really wearable shade and the consistency is lovely and moisturising on the lips. I only use micellar water to remove my makeup so it is super handy to get a new one to try, this Caudalie one has a citrus scent and is really refreshing on the skin! The final product I love is the Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask, I have quite dry skin so need something to really hydrate it and leave it looking a little more healthy, so this is perfect!

What do you think of this month's box?

Gerard Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks

If you follow me on Instagram then you will know how obsessed I am with these Gerard Hydra Matte Liquid Lipsticks, I talk about them all the time! I own four shades, Aphrodite, Serenity, Cher and Ecstasy. As the name suggests, these all have a matte finish and once they dry, they are set in place pretty much all day. These are by far the most long lasting lip products 
I've ever tried, I have even be able to eat dinner and still have the product on my lips and looking pretty much the same as they did before the meal. The only downside to the finish is that your lips can feel very dry throughout the day, although they don't look it and it doesn't accentuate dry patches on my lips. Shades wise, I love Ecstasy. It's different to any other lip product I own and I find it really flattering and easy to wear with most makeup looks. If I want something a little more subtle then Aphrodite is the shade I go for on a more daily basis. I'm obsessed with these lip products, I'm definitely going to be buying more shades and already have my eye on a couple of the red shades to add to my collection!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

I had been wanting to try this concealer for such a long time, having heard really great things about both the foundation and concealer. I eventually got my hands on it and have been using it everyday since. I bought the shade Fair Neutral which is the lightest shade they do, the main reason I bought this concealer was for under my eyes to use in a triangle shape to highlight the area. I find that this works really well for that, it's super brightening so makes me look a whole lot more awake than I actually am. I really like the consistency of this concealer, it's quite thin and lightweight so it doesn't feel like I've got lots of heavy products on my eye. While it's fabulous for using under the eyes, I find that it doesn't have quite as much coverage as my other concealers like the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer or the LA Girl Concealer. It's still got a decent amount of coverage so if you just have general blemishes it will work great for those, it just takes a little more product to cover my bad acne scarring and spots! Overall, I'm really happy I bought this concealer, I love that I can use it to highlight my under eyes without it feeling like I've got fifty products under my eyes. I would definitely recommend it if you've been considering purchasing it!
