My Customized Beauty Box

Boy was I surprised when I got my Birchbox in the mail! This month, the Birchbox team gave us a sneak peek into the secret lives of the Manhattan elite. Yes, the theme was none other than… X O X O, Gossip Girl. Who can resist the fabulous fashion and beauty that the flawless, yet twisted and tormented cast of Gossip Girl adorns week by week?! I’ve been following the show for the past two seasons, and well, it’s a HUGE guilty pleasure of mine! Like I said, I just couldn’t resist the juicy plotlines along with the stylish ensembles. I am only human, right ;) To boot, my Birchbox contained the social butterfly essentials to provide me with a chic, polished look. So let’s get started on this month’s Birchbox breakdown! As usual, it’s listed in order of LOVED A LOT, LOVED A LITTLE and COULD HAVE LIVED WITHOUT.

Waterfuse BB Cream from Dr. Jart +: This is my first time trying a BB cream, and I AM DEFINITELY IMPRESSED with this one. The best features of this product are the skincare ingredients, PA++ sun protection, quick absorption, matte finish and “just enough” coverage factor. The universal color worked fabulous on me, and I am a medium to tan shade with warm undertones. LOVED A LOT!

Disco Nap Nail Polish from Color Club: I love gold, and I love this nail color! Perfect amount of bling for a matching mani-pedi! Plus, it will make my gold accessories stand out. LOVED A LOT!

blendercleanser from beautyblender: Birchbox must be online stalking me because I was just looking at the beautyblender foundation sponge, and then they send me the cleanser for it! What a tease! I can’t wait to get the sponge and try it with my liquid foundation. LOVED A LOT!

Skinny Headband from twistband: Again, Birchbox must be reading my mind! I was at hot yoga the other day, and I kept pushing my bangs back. Of course, the thought crept in mind that I should invest in a headband, and lo and behold, the universe sends me one. Also, I love how skinny the band is, and it stays put even though my hair is on the fine side. LOVED A LOT!

L’Etrog Fragrance from Arquiste: Sorry but I’m just not a huge fragrance sample fan. I was impressed with the Kate Spade Twirl one that they sent me in a past Birchbox, but I COULD HAVE LIVED WITHOUT.

Birchbox Stationery: A cute little note to personalize and send to a friend! LOVED A LOT!
