March 2012: Teen Vogue inspired Birchbox

My March Birchbox arrived in the mail yesterday and I had really set up my mind to cancel my membership because the previous boxes weren’t hittin’ on nothing! This month Birch box gave us the option of getting a regular box or the new Teen Vogue inspired box for this month. Birchbox has teamed up with Beauty Guru, Eva Chen and she has loaded this box with party-prep items.  I’m far from being a teen but I figured I’d opt for the Teen Vogue box since I’m still young at heart. Glad I did! Upon opening the box I was saying to myself, “I sure hope I made the right decision by getting this Teen box because if not”, I knew that I was going to log on and cancel any future boxes. My husband watched as I open the box and to my amazement… there were some pretty great items inside. He gave me the ultimate side-eye and said, “You aren’t cancelling huh?!?”

Here’s what I got: 

essie | luxeffects in ‘a cut above’
A glittery nail polish can can be wore alone or as a top coat on another polish color for added bling.


tarte | LipSurgence lip tint in ‘Joy’
A long lasting lip stain that adds moisture and a slight pigmentation to the lips.

Annick Goutal | Eau d’ Hadrien
A parisian fresh crisp citrus scent.


 

twistband | Hair Tie
A snag-free elastic hair tie.

Shiseido | Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers
Mattifying paper coated with transparent rice powder to leave you skin shine-free.

They’ve even threw in a bonus: 
BONUS: a $10 Off Coupon code for MODCloth.com


I really liked the full-sized essie nail polish that they included in this month’s box, because we all know that these polishes can run you a good 8 bucks, easy! I also liked the Tarte lip tint, which as another full-sized product, that I have already taken to work with me and worn. I don’t always expect Birchbox to put full-sized products in all of their boxes because it’s a program that allows us to sample brands and if we like the samples we are encouraged to purchase the full-sized product at a discounted price directly from Birchbox.com. The last previous boxes were a little boring to me but this box had a little more personality in my opinion. Way to go Teen Vogue! So, I bet you are wondering… if I’m gonna cancel my membership? NOPE! I’m gonna hang in there and see what the next box has to offer. it won’t be a Teen Vogue box but I will try to remain in my optimism! 

Are you a BirchBoxerette? <—- new word, I know. What did you get in your Birchbox for March? This makes me wonder what did I miss out on in the regular Birchbox? Hmmm…
