BYOB August 2014


Remember, how I said that I won’t be getting another BYOB? Well, my willpower was seriously tested this month. Someone mentioned to me that this month’s BYOB selection includes Ruffian nail polish, and I just had to find out more.

So, here the updated selection of BYOB samples for the month of August.

Body & Nails:

  • Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream
  • Ruffian Nail Polish in Naked with a polish remover towlette
  • Whish Exfoliating Body Wash

  • Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive
  • Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
  • Marcelle New Age 8-in-1 Power Serum

  • Juliette Has A Gun Mad Madame
  • Folle de Joie
  • MCMC Fragrance


  • Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
  • Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle
  • DevaCurl Flexible Hold Hair Spray
  • Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Conditioner
  • Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk

Make Up:

  • Cynthia Rowley Creamy Lip Stain in Sugar
  • Laura Geller GlamLASH Dramatic Volumizing Mascara
  • MAKE make up remover
  • Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

Ruffian had me seriously tempted. If it was offered in more exiting color I probably would’ve cave and broke my vow of not buying unnecessary stuff for the time being. Don’t get me wrong I love understated and office appropriate nail colors,  but Naked,  just wasn’t as flattering for my skin tone as I hoped. It turned be peachy nude, not natural nude I expected, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. There rest of the selection was not very exiting to me. For the most part it included Items I already sampled and didn’t love enough to get a dupe, or samples I’m not really interested in at the moment. Just like the previous month, I wanted several things in skin care category and not much else (aside from unflattering Ruffian of course).

So, I’m still on the fence about August selection.  However, I still have a couple of weeks to decide.

What do you thing about August BYOB? Would you get it? Which samples would you pick?
