For this month’s Birchbox, they gave us the option of receiving their regular monthly box or a limited Teen Vogue edition. To mix things up, I opted for the Teen Vogue beauty picks box. I knew that if I didn’t, I’d be lusting over everyone else’s. I’m so, so, so glad I did! It’s awesome! I would have been so bummed if I hadn’t have gotten this one.
In the email, it mentioned that not everything would be exclusively for teens but suitable for any woman. And actually not one single thing is really teen oriented. Sure, maybe the glitter nail polish may not be every woman’s thing but it sure is mine!
So here’s what I got:
Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Papers – 10 mattifying tissues to absorb excess oil throughout the day. I’ve never tried this brand before but I like having blotting papers in my purse for when I need them.
Essie Luxeffects Glitter Nail Polish in A Cut Above – This is a full size bottle from Essie’s newest collection Luxeffects. A Cut Above is a clear nail polish base with light pink glitter. I’ve looked at these a million times at the store but luckily never bought one.
Tarte LipSurgence in Joy – LipSurgence is a cross between lipstick and lip gloss. They give your lips lots of color while providing shine and moisture. I already have about a dozen of these but not this one!
Joy is a really pretty peach color that appears peach when swatched on skin but once applied to lips it appears more pink. So excited for this full size item that retails for $24!
Petite Cherie Fragrance by Annick Goutal – Not too crazy about this one. It’s described as a blend of fresh fruity notes and musk. I don’t pick up any fruit, just mainly musk which kinda smells old ladyish. They could have picked a much better fragrance better suited for teens than this one. Bleh!
Twistband Hair Tie – I can always use more hair ties! I got one that is sort of mustard yellow.

Birchbox definitely scored a winner with this box. Between the full sized Essie and Tarte LipSurgence, the value is $32.00! I am extremely pleased this box and would love to see more just like it.
Did you opt for the Teen Vogue Birchbox this month? If so, were you just as happy with the products as I am?
