May Gossip Girl Birchbox

I finally received my first Birchbox. I was super excited when I was on the waiting list. And now here it is!

For those of you who don't know what a Birchbox is, it is monthly beauty box subscription for $10 a month and "every month Birchbox members will receive a curated box of luxe beauty samples. Each box will span beauty categories and deliver exciting products that fit into both your day-to-day routine, and into those days when you want to turn up the drama a notch."

Now, what I received in my box:

 Dr. Jart + Waterfuse BB Cream
This is a 4-in-1 moisturizer, serum, sunscreen and skin-perfecting tint.

Stila Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Curacao
Pearly shimmer almost glitter like liquid eyeliner in a pen-like wand package.

 Color Club in Disco Nap
This a a gold metallic finish
Keratase Cristalliste
A sample serum that claims to smooth out dry stands and add gorgeous shine.
It also came with a sample perfume which I forgot to picture.

Overall, I'm not too impressed considering that the May Birchbox was Gossip Girl inspired. I think some of the products are nice but definitely not for me. I don't really like to use liquid eyeliner, not to mention glitter with it! Also, it's really hard for me to use perfume because I'm really sensitive to scents. The Color Club mini was cute, although I wish I had gotten a more unique color. Other than that, the packaging was cute and functional.

Have you ordered your first Birchbox? What do you think of them?


  1. I always think subscription services like this look like so much fun, but I've never tried one! That eyeliner looks really neat :)

    1. Its really not my thing though. /= And they are def fun!

  2. I would much rather have the liquid liner than the hair elastic I got lol =)

  3. I've debated signing up for a subscription service like this for a while. They seem like fun but also very hit-or-miss. The eyeliner looks gorgeous though!

  4. Great stuff, although I don't know if I'd use a glittery liquid eyeliner either! I'd love to know what you think of the bb cream though, that looks awesome!

    1. I know. /= Ill definitely do a review on the BB cream.

  5. I've been wanting to sign up for some type of subscription service but have put it off for so long. I haven't watched Gossip Girl so this particular box wouldn't appeal to me either. I would like to try Birchbox one day though.
