Soooo, the March Birchbox is here! I always love getting these every month; the whole “grab bag” concept of what you’ll be finding inside the box is pretty exciting, haha. This box features items that are hot picks by the folks at Birchbox and Teen Vogue and I have to say although I was pleasantly surprised by most items, a couple were kind of “mehh” for me. Let’s discuss…
|March 2012 Birchbox contents.|
*First thing that caught my eye when opening this box was the bottle of essie nail polish (rad!). It’s their glitter luxeffects polish and is perfect for layering on top of solid colored polish, or worn alone for a little sparkle. There’s actually some chillin’ on the tip of my thumb nail right now and I’ll have to say, I don’t hate it. What girl doesn’t love a little bit of sparkle!
* a sample of Kate Spade’s Twirl fragrance…smells delightful…notes of fruits and florals, which is pretty perfect for spring.
*Keratase Elixir Ultime…this is a hair oil that is supposed to hydrate, smooth and “sleekify” your strands. Personally, I am a fan of the MoroccanOil line, but I’d be interested to see how this compares.
*tarte LipSurgance lip tint…I was stoked (yes, stoked) for this one. I adore tarte lip products and this one is certainly no exception! For one thing, it’s cruelty-free (not tested on animals) which is always aces in my book. It’s a long-lasting lip stain that also has moisturizing effects. You also get that nice little minty refreshing feel/smell too. The color,”lucky”, is also really pretty for spring and summer (see where I swatched it below!)
