Follow Up: May 2012 Birchbox

Since I'm now subscribed to 3 sampling services I thought every month I would do a quick follow up on the past box or bag and let you guys know what products I used and if I would recommend them or buy them in larger sizes myself.

The box I'll be talking about in this post is the May Birchbox that was Gossip Girl Themed. My June Birchbox is on it's way and should be here maybe today or tomorrow for sure! Let's get into this and see what I used!



Color Club | Nail Polish in Disco Nap
So here is the swatch and I quite like how this turned out only really took one coat but I used two in the photo. I would buy more colors from this company.





Dr. Jart + | Waterfuse BB Cream
I did receive two more of these tubes from Birchbox so extra props to them for taking care of it so quickly. I like this product overall but I find if I'm too heavy handed with it the color will oxidize and be too dark for me. I did enjoy trying it out tho and it would be a nice place to start in the BB cream realm.

Kerastase | Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide, Kerastase | Cristalliste Bain Cristal Shampoo (foil packet), Kerastase | Cristalliste Lait Cristal Conditioner (foil packet)
I loved these they were awesome and smelled like heaven in my hair. The Lumiere Liquide worked really well and had a nice lasting scent even when I didn't use it with the matching shampoo and conditioner. I will for sure keep this in mind for a future purchase.

Stila | Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Curacao
I have only used this four or five times and since I'm so bad at liquid liner I don't think I'll be getting much use out of this. I just get too frustrated and give up  lol. I do really like the color and it would have been perfect for me if it was in pencil form but I do recommend it if your a skilled liquid eyeliner gal.



Overall I was really happy with this box and the only thing that did not get used was the Notecard... I haven't had the need for any fancy paper but maybe soon.

Did you use all of your products from your last Birchbox?

  9. The only item i used was the polish and eye cream. I tried the BB cream but it was so PALE AND GREY on me... AND it never oxidized, so I remained pale and grey for the 5 hours I wore it :( :( :( Xox <3 hautepinkpretty.com

    1. Yeah I think that one can be tricky if your in a medium skin tone range. The polish is super pretty.
