July Birchbox // Never Ending Summer with Millie Mackintosh
If you're a subscriber of Birchbox, I have to say you're in for a bit of a treat this July! This month Birchbox has revealed its collaboration with Millie Mackintosh to create the Never Ending Summer Birchbox. Not only is the box itself rather pretty, but its contents include Millie's first ever makeup collaboration: a limited edition Love of Color (LOC) lip pencil. Now, I absolutely adore the formula of these lip pencils; they're creamy, pigmented and apply like a dream and this new - and very Millie - shade is no different....
What makes this collaboration even more special (I know right, a whole lotta specialness!), is the fact that Millie shared a sneak peak of her collaboration on Instagram (oh boy, who doesn't love Instagram) by inviting her fans to choose their favourite of three box designs that she worked on with the brand to create. The winning design was definitely my favourite, mostly because it's pink durrr, but also because it was inspired by Millie's love of sunsets and Bohemian summers. This theme aptly ties in with the LOC x Millie Mackintosh Ultra-Gloss Lip Pencil, which has been titled 'Bohemian Rose' - a gorgeous pink shade perfect for warmer climates.
In addition to the LOC pencil, the July Never Ending Summer Birchbox contains a selection of Millie's beauty favs such as the Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water, John Frieda Frizz Ease Forever Smooth Anti-Frizz Primer (full size), Nails inc Nail Polish and Indeed Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Sheet Mask. You're bagging a gooden this month gals! If you're not lucky enough to get your hands on this month's box, but adore Milie's LOC Lip Pencil, you're in luck because that will become available to purchase on Birchbox.co.uk from 1 August. You have to be quick though as they're available in limited quantities.
