March 2012 Birchbox

This month Birchbox partnered with Teen Vogue since as you all know Spring formals/proms are coming up. Now I know I'm far from a teen but when I heard Essie would be included in it I just had to get it. here's what came inside the box:

  • Essie-luxeffects in Set in Stone. I was hoping for a glittery Essie since I only own one Essie polish and was completely thrilled to find out I got a full-size bottle. Yeah that's right a full-size bottle of this amazing brand. I tested it out on my thumb and was so surprised by how much glitter came out in one coat. Can't wait to do different designs with this.
  • Kerastase- Elixir Ultime. A small sample size of a nourishment for your hair containing antioxidants that will hydrate, smooth, and add shine to your hair. I haven't tried this yet but will be sure to let you know how it works.
  • Kate Spade New York-Twirl. I absolutely love fragrance samples because I have found so many times I smell it in the store its one thing and when I come home it smells differently. Here I have my little bottle that can last a while and I will know by then if I like it. I have never tried this kind but really enjoy it as it doesn't have that alcohol chemical smell nor a too fruity smells. It's a perfect blend and I would definitely buy a full-size bottle. 
  • Tarte- LipSurgence Lip Tint in Amused. I have to admit when I first saw this I got a little freaked out because it looked bright pink and as a tan person that color just doesn't work for me. But When I put it on it didn't come out that bright pink it actually was a very natural pink color. It also had the consistency of thin lip gloss which was weird because it's a pencil lip tint. Personally, I just wished it had a girl or fruity smell as I smelled a mint-like smell from it that I wasn't very fond of.
  • Twistband- (not included) Hair Tie in Orange. I love the elasticity of this hair tie because that means it will actually fit around my extremely thick hair (thanks to my dad) and my godmother who is hairdresser dreads when she has to do my hair for special occasions. I will definitely check out their website and see the different types of things they offer
  • ModCloth Promo Code- $10 Off any $75+ order. Won't be using this but if anyone is interested let me know. 

All in all, I was extremely pleased with my March Birchbox. It had great stuff in it.  I hope to see more boxes like this in the future and can't wait to see my April Box. Interested in Birchbox? Receive 4-5 beauty samples a month for only $10/month.  http://www.birchbox.com?raf=kjq4s
