Birchbox Quick Look: August 'Finishing School' Box

My box contents this month:

  • (MALIN + GOETZ) vitamin e face moisturizer - 2 foil packets, .04 fl oz/1.2g ea.
  • Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in 'Beso' - 0.03 fl oz/1ml
  • Whish Exfoliating Body Wash - 22ml/.75 fl oz
  • Whish Deodorant Swipe with hair inhibitor - 2.3g/.08oz
  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product - 59.1ml/2 fl oz

Feeling a little bit indifferent about my Birchbox.. However, I do feel like the Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in 'Beso' is the star of my box this month! I have actually been eyeing the stay all day liquid lipsticks for a while, so I had my fingers crossed & I'm really happy to have received it. I've also heard a lot of rave reviews on the It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product, so that should be fun to try. :) I highly doubt it'll be replacing my all time favorite Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle, though! I originally wasn't very excited about the Whish Exfoliating Body Wash, but after reading the description on the Birchbox website I'm feeling more optimistic that I'll be able to put it to use. Apparently the product formulation is gentle enough for use on the face, who knew!? Customer service over at Whish has confirmed this, so I'm excited to give it a shot!
As for the foil packets? I don't even want to talk about it. I loathe them and I am so over receiving them. :P

Here's a quick swatch of the star product from my box this month:

Stila stay all day liquid lipstick in 'Beso' swatched on the back of my hand (no primer, no base).
This amazing lipstick starts off as a liquid and dries down to a matte finish that doesn't budge <3
