My Second Birchbox- May: Worth over $35

Just $10 per month and with their amazing point system, you earn free full size products FAST!

So I know I am really late in posting this, but better late than never, right? ;)

I am going to make this post super simple.  Here is what I received:

Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Value $22: I LOVED this liner!  The sparkle is gorgeous, but the color was a little too wild for me to wear on a daily basis (I am thinking more pep rally days at school), so I bought one in black with my bonus points!

Dr. Jart Water Fuse Beauty Balm: Talk about COMPLETE disappointment!  This is a decent size tube, but the tube was seriously practically empty.  On the bright side, when I wore it to work one day, I was a little unsure about it, but one of my wonderful co-workers came up to me and told me my skin looked amazing that day.  She said she could not stop looking at how pretty and dewy my complexion was.  Hey, with a compliment like that, this stuff may be worth it!  Lol.  I did contact Birchbox about the lack of product and they were kind enough to send me not one, but TWO new samples with a tip on how to get the product out the easiest.  This was technically on error on Dr. Jart's end (who I also contacted and they have yet to respond), so props to Birchbox for excellent customer service once again!

Kerastase Shampoo and Conditioner Sample Packets: I loved this shampoo and conditioner!  I used it along with my other Kerastase sample and was in love with my hair!  I am HUGE on having soft, healthy hair and this definitely helps.

Kerastase Cristalliste Lumiere Liquide: I loved this so much that I purchased the full size bottle for $42 using my coupon code and bonus points.  It only takes one pump and comes out very watery, but it is easy to spread throughout your hair and makes it shiny and super smooth after blow drying.

Color Club Polish in Disco Nap: Blah!!!  This color is SO not for me.  I am really wanting a cute coral color, so I will keep hoping.  This will become a future giveaway.  I do appreciate the sample though!  It was a full size worth $8 which certainly increased the already high value of the box.

Oh, and we can't forget that notecard that was included!  I featured it in my last May Birchbox post, so if you are really interested in seeing it, you can find it HERE.

Once again Birchbox comes out on top!  :)


  1. For once we got a completely different box! I love that eyeliner you got. Very cute! I got a new fragrance this month that was to die for and I'll be purchasing it ;) I like that they sent you two products that coincide so that you can use them together (Keratase products).

  2. I got the eyeliner in an olive green color which I LOVE! I'll definitely be buying that in the future. The Dr. Jart BB cream was pretty awesome as well. But wow that nail polish is ugly.

  3. Stila does make great eye liners. I have the olive green shade and lone it. It is a good Birchbox this month. Thank you for sharing!

  4. I have loved every liner I have tried from Stila! I am so glad that Birchbox sends out full size products! I have enough to last me a year! :)

  5. I would love to try the eyeliner in olive green! I bet it is really pretty! I am glad that you agree with me about the polish. Lol.

  6. I love that Birchbox sends out a variety, but only when I get a decent box. Haha! What fragrance did you receive? They usually send out really good ones. I am not big on getting vials of perfume, but I love getting them from Birchbox. I agree about the Kerastase thing. I used the shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in all at the same time to see how well they worked together. I loved it!
