March Birchbox (link-up)

Time for the March Birchbox link up with Tara and Katie. This month I went with the Teen Vogue box. I saw that Essie products would be featured. SOLD!  

This is what I got

essie® Luxeffects Nail Polish 

"Looking like a disco ball in public is a major don't, which is why we tend to tread softly when it comes to adding shimmer to our looks. After much trial and error (and a few sequin-related disasters), we've discovered that the best way to wear sparkle is on our nails. Enter essie®'s new range of Luxeffects top coats. Worn solo or layered, these multi-dimensional polishes will make you look, feel, and shine like a million bucks."

tarte LipSurgence™ lip tint 

"It took us a while to learn how to draw inside the lines, but our childhood addiction to coloring books is finally paying off. These user-friendly chubby lip pencils are a goofproof way to lasting, moisturizing color. A cross between a stain and a gloss, each gel-based tint goes on sheer yet stays true for hours. The wearable shades include peaceful, a beige-toned neutral tint; lucky, a soft pink matte tint; and joy, a juicy peach tint. Naturally, our favorite is amused, a bright fuchsia tint."

Twistband Hair Ties 

"Back in the day, we used to rock scrunchies like they were our job. But now that we’re grown-ups (kind of), it’s time to graduate to something a bit more sophisticated. These chic hair ties keep hair secure without snagging strands or leaving ugly creases. Best of all, they look as good on our wrists as they do in our ponytail." 

Kérastase Elixir Ultime

It took us a while to hop on the hair oil bandwagon, but boy were we missing out. This lightweight elixir is fortified with a unique combo of four essential oils to leave strands super shiny and manageable—whether your hair is curly, straight, or in between. Plus, we can use it as a pre-shampoo treatment or leave-in conditioner. What more can a girl ask for? 

kate spade new york Twirl

kate spade new york’s charming designs are meant to be playful, feminine, and joyful — the same goes for the brand’s signature scent. Attention-getting without being overpowering, Twirl is an incredibly versatile fragrance. The fruity floral is as suitable for the office as it is for a cocktail party. And just like everything else in the kate spade new york universe, Twirl makes you feel instantly more pulled together and ladylike.

What did you get in your Birchbox?



  1. you got a great box! what do you think about that color in the tarte lip stain? i'm thinking about buying it!

  2. it seems that everyone gets Birchbox but me! i want to do it but then i get nervous ... i don't know why, haha.

    love the nail polish color! i have yet to try Essie but everyone says such amazing things about the brand!

  3. you should totally get Birchbox. Its 10 buckaroos a month and if you don't like it you can cancel.

    Essie is a decent brand, they've improved, thank goodness!
