Red Carpet Ready: Birchbox Box Opening!!! Feb 2013

It is time, once again, for a Birchbox Box Opening!!! This time of year is "awards show" season. To get us in a glitz & glam spirit, Birchbox brings us a "Red Carpet Ready" Birchbox!!! This theme is right up my alley! I am a bit of an awards show junkie. Not so much for the awards really. It is the fashion, beauty, makeup, and hair that inpsires me!

Birchbox wants us to feel like stars by using Red Carpet-worthy products! No, we can't all be movie starts. However, we all deserve some great products that make us feel glamorous!

Find out what is inside the February 2013 Red Carpet Ready Birchbox!!!

Birchbox February 2013: Red Carpet Ready
Inside the box:
  • Dr. Lipp | Original Nipple Balm for Lips (sample size .1 fl oz, full size cost: $14.50): As a nursing Mom myself, I happen to know all about nipple creams! They even told me in the hospital that I could use it on my dry lips when they handed me a sample tube of Lanolin ointment. It is true! Nipple creams are amazing lip moisturizers! It was just a matter of time before they started repackaging them and marketing them for lips. It really is a great concept. Nipple creams have to be very natural because your sweet baby might ingest a bit of product. So, you know that any nipple cream inspired balm would be super safe to use on your own lips. Great concept! I am happy to have this little sample.
  • Juicy Couture | Couture La La (small glass spray vial, full size cost: $19.90): I know, another perfume sample from Birchbox! I am a fan of Juicy Couture scents. So, I know that I will get some good use out of this one. However, I have a bad cold right now and can't smell anything. Looking forward to testing this out whenever I can smell again, lol! For now, here is the scent description from Birchbox: a stunning mix of mandarin, red current, lily, and orange blossom. 
  • the Bam cosmetics | Mary-Lou Manizer (1.0 g sample, full size cost $24): I LOVE theBalm!!! Actually, the Balm has become one of my favorite brands!!! Their eye shadows and blushes (in particular) are amazing!!! So, I am just thrilled that there was a theBalm sample included in this box. Especially since it was for an item that I don't have already! This gorgeous champagne shimmer powder can be used as a shadow, highligher, or all-over-shimmer. The texture is amazing!!!
  • TIGI | Rockaholic Fun Times Flexible Hold Hairspray (2.3 oz sample, full size cost $20.50): What great timing!!! I ran out of travel hairspray during my last weekend away! So, I am going to toss this goodie into my travel bag for my next trip!!! Yay! I have never tried TIGI's hairsprays before. So, I am excited as I am already a fan of the brand.
  • Birchbox Treat: Ghirardelli Chocolate: While I would have loved to eat this, it melted during delivery. Oh well!!! It can be tricky mailing chocolate to GA (even in the winter).
I am quite impressed with this month's Birchbox!!! The Mary-Lou Manizer from theBalm pretty much "made" the box for me! Plus, the travel hairspray from TIGI was the icing on the cake! I loved this month's Birchbox and am so excited to use these products!

My fellow Birchboxers, what did you get this month?

Mine hasn't come but I always seem to get it late. I'm so sick of those Juicy Couture perfume samples. They need to at least change brands.

Unknown said...

@marcia-That is a very good point! I think this is the 3rd Juicy Couture perfume sample that I have gotten. Time for them to branch out. At least I like these scents! :)

Kate @ Classy Living said...

Oooohhh I really wanted the Mary Loumanizer! I'm super jealous that you got that! :)

Unknown said...

@Kate-I know, that Mary Loumanizer *made* the box for me! :)

Veronica and Daniel said...
