Teen Vogue Birchbox

My March Birchbox was a collabration with Teen Vogue.

Stated on information card in box:
"You’re in for a treat. This month, we’ve partnered with our friends at Teen Vogue to put together an exciting Birchbox that will help you get ready for all your spring formals and special events. After all, isn’t getting dolled up half the fun?"  

Well as soon as I read that I was thinking "Im 27, I dont have formals to go to...what is in this box that Im actually going to use?"

Turns out that I have used EVERYTHING in this box! Who knew?!


Annick Goutal,Petite Cherie- Perfume sample, Retails: $85 USD. This smells amazing! Has a sweet fruity scent. to bad its way to expensive or I would of bought it.

twistband, Hair Tie- A pretty gold colored Elastic that does not snag your hair. Retails: $18 USD for a 12 pack. I will say that I have used it a few times and it stretches out way to easy.

Shiseido Purness Oil-Control Blotting Tissues- Retails: $18 USD for 100 sheets. The sheets have transparent rice powder on them to mattify your face.

FULL SIZE tart LipSurgence lip tint, in color peaceful- Retails: $24 USD.  A pretty nude/gold tint.

As per description on my information card:
"This long-lasting stain adds rich pigment and is designed to boost the moisture levels in your lips."
I think this color is a little to light and sheer for me. Its pretty, but my natural lip color is a mauve color so this tint was not enough color to cover that up. It is moisturizing and I love how it is a twist up pencil! No sharpening at all! Just twist the bottom of the pencil to make more product appear.

FULL SIZE Essie Luxeffects polish, in color as gold as it gets. (as you can see, my birchbox has a gold theme this month) Retails: $8 USD and you can buy them HERE because birchbox does not sell them on their site. I already own a Luxeffects polish in color shine of the times and I LOVE it. These polishes are best when worn over another polish and they give a beautiful shimmer to the nail rather than giant chunks of glitter!




  1. I got the same box but different colors.. loved it!!

  2. Me to!! Just wish the lip tint was another color :/

  3. This month was amazing! I love your polish though. I love the one I got but I have been on a gold kick lately! I think I might need this one too :)

  4. I love to gold polosh too. Whats funny is I almost purchased the same polish a week before I recieved my box, good thing I didnt.
