March 2012 Birchbox: Teen Vogue Edition

YAY!!! My March Birchbox arrived a few days ago and I am over the moon! I heard a lot about these boxes in the blogsphere and I was really nervous about trying them. Then i decided, hey, for ten bucks, can i REALLY go wrong?
So glad I thought that way! The first box I received is sponsored by TEEN VOGUE's beauty guru, Eva Chen. They put together a box filled with items to "help you get ready for all your spring formals and special events." Although I am not in high school, much less going to prom, I'm glad I picked this. The box features products from Essie, Tarte, Twistband, Kérastase and more.

Click "READ MORE" to see the goodies...

 I was hesitant because I thought it would be like the samples you get in Bloomingdale's after a purchase or something.

Boy was I wrong! The TEEN VOGUE Birchbox includes:
  • Essie Lux Effects Polish (Full Sized)
  • Kate Spade New York Twirl Perfume (sample)
  • Kérastase Hair Elixir (sample)
  • Tarte Lip Surgence Lip Tint (Full Sized)
  • Twistband Hair Tie
  • Coupons to Teen Vogue & Modcloth
The total estimated worth of the box (according to my lovely calculations) is around $40. Just those two full size items alone would have cost me way more than $10 anyway, so the box was definitely worth it! My three favorite items were the full size Tarte matte lip tint, the Keratease Hair Elixer, and the Essie! I can't wait to do reviews of some of these products.

What is Birchbox? Birchbox is a monthly subscription of high-end beauty product samples. For $10 a month you get a box of 4-5 of hand-picked sample products (based on an online questionnaire) shipped to your door, with tips and tutorials of how to use them. It is a fun way to try new products and discover what you love without the commitment of sky-high luxury prices to do so.
