Julia's signature Red Lip
Russian Red by Mac. Unfort, Mac tests on animals which is such a bummer given the glowing review Julia gave. But according to the sweet sweet internet, here are some cruelty-free dupes of this color that you will hopefully enjoy just as much:

I AM NOT RECEIVING COMPENSATION! I just emailed them and asked if I could get a code for my hunnies to encourage everyone to try an eco box out. I have enjoyed the two I've gotten so far very much.
This month there is a Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lip in the box that is pure sizzle!
Julia and I both recommend you throw a clothing swap party with all of your pals!
Refresh your wardrobe, purge things you no longer wear, and swap makeup you didn't use/like/ used once or never opened.
Here's an Oprah article explaining more about them- I trust Oprah with my entire life/body/soul.
Also, to make a direct donation to Planned Parenthood and help a woman in need get her annual pap, receive counseling, get some condoms she can't afford, or cure her debilitating UTI,
go to www.plannedparenthood.org.
I encourage everyone to invest in a water bottle and start lugging it along with you everywhere you go, specifically lunch, so you stop buying a plastic water bottle every day! We can cut down on our waste where we can and help make a difference (to off-set all of our Sephora samples)
I have a PANK Bkr bottle and am obsessed with it! I have the 500ml but they also make a 1 liter size if you are EXTRA thirsty!
My husband has a Swell and is obsessed with it and now I also want one.
I also recommend a set of bamboo flatware! They are great for lunches on the go or at work. I give these to everyone I know for Christmas. They're so dang handy and cute!
Unfort they don't have PANK but I have the agave color
Let me know which beauty boxes YOU like, and some of your favorite products you've found in your boxes. My favorite box discovery ever is definitely SuperGoop which came in my Birch box.
I wear the Supergoop sunscreen oil every day!
