Hey everyone! This month is FLYING by. Seriously, I can't believe there's less than a week left. I've realized I've been slacking a bit with my subscription box reviews this month, so I wanted to make sure I got them in before August is here and well under way. My Birchbox shipped out SUPER late this month because of a hold up with the Plus item that I added on, which means my Glambag has had my full attention in the past few weeks. Product wise July's selection was sort of middle of the road for me, but I'm totally digging the vibrant sort of tribal print of the bag. Let's take a look.

As much as I appreciate neutral, classic, work-appropriate makeup, nothing gives me as big a confidence boost as a bold statement lip. In the cooler and darker months I'm all about rich berry tones and velvety reds, but when the temperatures are rising and the sun is shining I find myself reaching for fierce fuchsias and vibrant corals. If you're worried that a hot pink lipstick will take you into clown territory, relax. I promise it's much easier to rock than you might think! For me, wearing a statement lip is all about balance - keeping your other features looking flawless and polished, but not competing for attention. Today I'm going to introduce you to a few of my favorite lipsticks for summer, as well as the makeup look I like to sport whenever I wear them!

Show of hands, who else out there has drawers full of eyeshadows, blushes, bronzers, and highlights that are basically collecting dust?
It's so easy for a shade to become neglected as it gets buried in a heap of beauty products. As someone who subscribes to a few beauty subscription boxes this is especially true, as I receive a lot of eyeshadow singles or mini sizes of products to try that don't always make it into the daily rotation. A lot of times its easier to reach for one of my palettes, where several shades are displayed easily at once, rather that dig through my stash to find a set of coordinating colors. It pains me, though, because I know I'm not utilizing my entire collection and I've definitely got some gorgeous products going un-noticed. So what's a girl to do?
Enter, the Z Palette.
As a de-clutter-er, DIY enthusiast, and makeup lover the Z Palette is basically a dream come true. With a multitude of sizes and colors available, these empty magnetic palettes are the perfect storage devices for your color makeup products. After hearing so many professional Makeup Artists and Beauty Bloggers rave about them, I don't know why I waited so long to pull the trigger and finally buy my own!
