July Birchbox - Born Unicorn

First off, I hope anyone who attended any pride events had a fabulous time! It is almost perfect that this month's Birchbox has a unicorn theme too! Not that you can really tell from the box other than 'Born Unicorn' on the tray insert! The swirl design is also holographic, I tried to capture that as best I could. The box this month is about embracing our inner magic and celebrating what makes us one-of-a-kind. No matter who we are, the colour of our skin, sexuality or gender identity, we are all unique, but all human and that should be celebrated! No unicorn left behind or left in the dark!

Universally flattering, these buttery shimmer shadows from Floss Beauty glide on smoothly and blend with ease (even if you just use your finger!). Buff over your eyelids for a wash of soft, glowing, long-lasting colour, or build to go bold. (Psst... did we mention they're cruelty-free?)

I've seen so many makeup looks on YouTube and Instagram featuring bright colours (I'm loving the latest looks by Jessie) and I'm looking forward to trying this eyeshadow and seeing what I can do with it. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with colour. It also looks blendable enough to use as a blush/highlight. 

Using a uniquely curved and tapered brush that hugs the natural shape of your eye, this blacker-than-black mascara grabs hold of every lash to define, lengthen and curl (what more could you want?!). Plus, the buildable formula stays in place all day whilst never clumping or flaking.

I've tried a few Marcelle products through Birchbox, and everything I have tried, I have loved (especially the eye makeup remover!) So I have high expectations. As someone who has small eyelashes, I am always interested in mascaras with strong claims for lengthening - I'm never going to get false lash lenght, but something decent is always good! 

This 2-in-1 daily moisturizer and illuminating glow is enriched with vitamins, botanicals and hyaluronic acid to flood dull skin with hydration. Wear your glow on its own, or combine with foundation for a radiant finish.

I love any skincare product with hyaluronic acid. Keeping ourselves and our skin hydrated is super important, especially in summer. Also, glowy skin is always popular in summer and this has a little tint in it so it will fun to try out. The premise reminds me a little of Estee Lauder Daywear, but still more on the skincare side. 

Perfect for normal to oily skin types, this foaming cleanser removes make-up, daily impurities and excess oils, without ever leaving your skin feeling tight - just clean, healthy and soft. The all-natural blend of botanicals even adds light hydration!

It is true whenever I hear 'foaming cleanser', I do think of all the moisture leaving my skin. However, this claims not to leave your skin tight, even hydrated so I am interested in trying this. I am not too fussy with cleansers, I don't really have a problem with spots but this sounds like it could be a nice daily cleanser. 

Meet our latest love, this shine-enhancing mist from Percy & Reed. Adding a burst of rose-scented fragrance and instant gloss to your 'do, it leaves your hair looking and smelling its very best.

I love Percy & Reed! I've been using many of their products for years - I'm currently using and loving their hairspray! I feel like this is something very fancy and something you would only normally see on the red carpet so I'll definitely be using this next time I'm going somewhere fancy! I am also a big rose fan so that's great too!

Have you tried any of these products?
