May 2012 Birchbox (XOXO)

Good morning, Upper East Siders! This month's Birchbox is Gossip Girl themed!

I started watching Gossip Girl last year, after my coworker and fellow-blogger Robin introduced me to the guilty pleasure. The season finale airs this Monday at 8/7C on The CW, so this box of luxe samples is the perfect ending to another glam, drama-filled season!

Beautiful box!

How exciting! The card says the collection of samples are what an uptown lady needs for a black tie ball.
All the samples

Dior | Diorshow Extase | Full-size, $28.50
I'm thrilled with this sample! Just last month at the mall I was contemplating purchasing this mascara, but didn't end up buying. This formula creates dramatic lashes, especially if you naturally have blond eyelashes like I do.

Dior | Miss Dior Eau de Parfum | Full-size, $62, $102
Smells great! I imagine Blair would approve.

Miracle Skin Transformer Body SPF 20 in Glow | Full-size, $34
This tinted treatment promises to erase blemishes and scars, creating flawless skin. It creates a pretty shimmer, but I didn't experience much "erasing."

SHU UEMURA | Cleansing Oil Shampoo | Full-size, $55
 This shampoo smells AMAZING. Have you ever smelled a yuzu? I'm obsessed.

Birchbox extra | Notecards | Set of 12, $10 

My previous Birchboxes:



Birchbox is a fun way to try out high-end beauty and lifestyle products. Each month you receive a box with five samples delivered to your mailbox for $10, free shipping. You can cancel at any time. If you want to purchase the full-size product, the Birchbox Shop has it and you get points for each purchase!

If you subscribe to Birchbox, I'd love to know what you got!

I just picked up my May Birchbox from my parents' house today and LOVED my samples!! It was my favorite box yet! Mine had all of the products needed for a high profile book premier ;) Sooo perfect! I received BB cream (excited to try out the Dr. Jart brand), perfume that actually sprays, Stila liquid eyeliner (it's soo big too! It doesn't seem like a sample but a regular size), volumizing conditioner, one of those hair ties, and the notecard :) Must admit, I was like... ONE notecard??? Really? Usually the little bonus gifts are better than that!

Ahh a book premier, how perfect! Your box sounds fabulous, especially the full-size Stila!
I agree about just one notecard, however I'll gladly take that over the downloadable music single that game in a previous box as an extra!
