January 2012 Birchbox

In December I decided to sign up for Birchbox and MyGlam. Part of my new years resolution was to work on finding myself again and (like most girls) I love makeup and beauty products.  I should be receiving my first Glam bag in February but on Saturday I received my first Birchbox!!!!  I never thought one little box with pink paper would make me so happy! 

Birchbox is a monthly beauty sample mailing.  It is $10/month and every month you receive 4 to 5 high end samples to try.  What I like about Birchbox is you take a beauty quiz and the samples are picked out for you.  If you don't like the samples you are getting you can change your quiz and try again.  Easy peasy!!  Also if your friends sign up for Birchbox and use your link you get beauty points for products. :) 

If you are interested in trying Birchbox follow this link.  I never thought $10 would make me run to my mailbox! 

It arrives in a wrapped box.  The box is so simple but pretty. Who doesn't love pink?

Everything is wrapped with pink tissue paper. aahh... pink :)

Everything that was in my box except the disgusting granola.  My Hubby ate that and said it was horrible. 

Cute little list for mini detoxes.  I need to do all of them!
About each product and how much the full size costs. 

Treats and hides problem areas at the same time.  I rarely wear concealer because I do not like to feel like my makeup is caked on.  I rubbed a dab on my hand this morning and was AMAZED at how light it felt.  I am going to try to tomorrow.  So far I really like it.  It also doesn't smell medicated or super make up like. 

I *heart* this color!!  When I first got it I thought it looked alittle chalky.  I used it on Saturday and its a beautiful lavender/gray color.  I have used Zoya nail polish before and loved it.  This is no exception.  Its also a thicker nail polish and doesn't chip like cheaper brands.  The polish has a super glossy finish. 

This fragrance is really flowery.  It smells good but I have not tried it yet. 

VMV vows to conquer dark circles once and for all. I will be trying it this week.  Out of all the products in my Birchbox I am the most excited about this one.  I want to stay 28 FOREVER!!!!
