Birchbox has it going on this month!  If you enjoy curated samples to your specific profile all for $10 a month this one is for you.  I love trying big branded items before I head in to pay full price and the deluxe samples give me just that.  Added to this box of beautiful-ness Birchbox has all your shopping in one place this way if you find a product you enjoy you can find the full size item on their website.  Be sure to check out The MAG that has tips and tricks for you all month long!  Without further ado, lets jump in to my curated box for August.

Oscar de la Renta, Bella Blanca Eau de Parfume – Full Size $75-$95

As its name states this perfume is surprisingly fresh and floral.  Made with freesia, jasmine sambac and creamy sandalwood this soft feminine scent is not overpowering.  I actually enjoy this scent and I’m not a perfume person. This scent is inspired by the modern Oscar de la Renta woman and have done an amazing job.

Benefit, BADgal BANG Volumizing Mascara – Full Size  $24

Although  mixed reviews I really enjoy this mascara.  Don’t  let the slim brush fool you.  Its made to get right down to the lash line to coat each individual lash giving you bigger, badder lash impact.  Make sure you use any new mascara 3-4 times to be sure to airate the tube and to get use to the skinny wand.  It takes a few uses to master.

Love Of Color, One and Done Shadow Stick – Champagne Problems – Full Size $10

This cult classic of a brand has amassed quite a following.  For anyone, especially the woman on the go this quick stick provides 11 hours of crease-less color with no brushes, blenders or primers. In a very flattering silvery taupe shade glide it on your lids, use as a highlighter or your inner eye corners for a pop of glisten that will last all day.  Did I mention its waterproof?

Orbie, Featherbalm Weightless Styler – Full Size $42

Don’t let the price scare you.  This is one of those times you actually get what you pay for.  I use this as a multipurpose tool applying this through my damp hair then blow drying (or air dry if your short on time) and use as a tamer thru out the day.  The scent is light but intoxicating and a little goes a long way.  Ive never met an Orbie product I have not liked.  Definitely a well rounded company with a stellar reputation of products that work.

Avene, Cleanance Expert – Full Size $26

Clean up your acne prone skin with this treatment. This multitasking emulsion  simultaneously hydrates, mattifies, and treats acne plus blackheads without irritation thanks to soothing thermal spring water and zit-zapping ingredients monolaurin and X-pressin.  It sinks into your skin  so quickly you can use it as a makeup base as well.  Loving multitasking products this is definitely one of them.
