Each month BB5 creates a theme-based box, and the theme for July 2015 is fuss-free hot-weather makeup featuring some good skincare products, a swipe of lip liner, some sparkling lip gloss, shimmering nails, and sparkling temporary metallic tattoos.
1) OFRA Lip Gloss in Apricot Dream (Full size $12.95): This is a really gorgeous, non-sticky twinkling and glossy lip gloss. While it is a lovely peach in the tube, it imparts less color and more shine and shimmer when swatched. It has a very faint nondescript scent that fades immediately.

A soft creamy formula for an ultra sheer finish enriched with anti-oxidants. Gloss contains natural sun filters (Titanium Dioxide) and may be used alone or over a lipstick to add brilliant shine. #OFRA

Ingredients: Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Dipentaerythrityl Hexacaprylate/Hexacaprate, Tridecyl Trimellitate, Tridecyl Stearate, Neopentyl Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate, Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Octyldodecanol, C10-30 Cholesterol/Lanosterol Esters, Diisostearyl Malate, Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Ozokerite, Fragrance, Tocopheryl Acetate, Phenoxyethanol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, BHT

OFRA is Cruelty-Free, Peta-Endorsed and made in the USA.

2) OFRA Lipliner in Baby Doll (Full size $13.00): This is a long-wearing and water-resistant formula that lasts and lasts and lasts. The shade is a beautiful burnt sienna that perfectly evokes the turning leaves of autumn.

Water resistant pencil suitable for the most sensitive eye & lip areas. Created with a synthetic beeswax base for a smooth, soft and long lasting application. #OFRA

3) Nanacoco Nail Polish in Hope of Spring (Full size $3.00): This is such a pretty shimmering green polish, and it is warm weather perfect.

On-trend colors for fun fabulous looks. This heavily pigmented polish will have your nails looking their best in a flash. #nanacoco
4) Love Life Skin Collection (Sample packets. Full size retail $25.00-$30.00): Love Life Skin is a skincare line that was first created for use by chemotherapy patients who were having issues with sensitive skin. The formulas are soothing, nourishing and hydrating, and a good choice for sensitive skin.

Their story is worthy of note:

For over 20 years, three distinguished doctors in New York City witnessed harsh chemotherapy and radiation treatments ravage their patients’ skin – causing damage, inflammation and dehydration. Inspired by their patients and motivated to improve their quality of life, the trio decided to create a skincare line to address the condition of dehydrated, sensitive skin.

On a typical busy day in the chemotherapy room, one of the doctors was consoling a patient complaining about the treatment’s dehydrating effects on her skin. When the doctor revealed her desire to develop a skincare line to help with this common complaint, another patient in the room interjected and said, “I can actually help you with that.” The patient was a beauty industry expert who launched many successful brands during her career, and knew first-hand how her skin suffered from the dehydrating effects of treatment.

The patient introduced the doctors to a long-term colleague – an award-winning scientist and cosmetic chemist. Together, with their collective experience and knowledge, they set out to create a unique skincare line that would rehydrate, heal and restore. They sought out the highest quality natural extracts and antioxidants and developed a delivery system that micronizes and encapsulates these active ingredients to penetrate the skin more efficiently. #lovelifeskin

5) Pur-lisse Flash Tattoos (Sample Size, Full retail $9.00): These fun temporary tattoos can be worn on the fingers, wrists, or anywhere you want to add a little extra sparkle.

Instantly sparkle with jewel-like tattoos! Apply anywhere on skin to glam up any day or night look! How To: Clean and dry skin before application. Place tattoos face down on skin. Hold a wet cloth for 30-45 seconds, then peel off and gently pat. Allow tattoo to sit for 10 minutes. #purlisse
Top to Bottom: Nanacoco Nail Polish in Hope of Spring,  OFRA Lip Gloss in Apricot Dream and OFRA Lipliner in Baby Doll.
Overall Assessment: The OFRA Lip Gloss in Apricot Dream is the real star of the show! It's a gorgeous and non-sticky gloss that feels as good as it looks. I do wish that the skincare products were deluxe samples, that came in resealable tubes rather than packets, since they would be perfect for travel, and one could test them for a longer period of time.
