My Teen Vogue Birchbox

Well look what finally came in the mail! I was just tweeting earlier today how I felt like I was the last one to receive my Birchbox this month. I opted for the Teen Vogue curated box which beauty guru Eva Chen selected her favorite items. I love following her on Twitter. The packaging was similar to the typical Birchbox with pink tissue paper but with some red so it reminded me of Valentine's Day.

What I received was different than what was on the card so I'm assuming they ran out of the original products. Did anyone else have this issue?

Looks so empty...

- Annick Goutal Petite Cherie perfume sample (full size $85) - This was a super girlie perfume but once again another perfume sample I could get for free at Sephora or a department store.
- Essie Luxeffects in "A Cut Above" (Full size $8) - I was most excited to get this item, it looks so pretty!
- Twistband hair tie (12 pack for $18) - I lost my other one but cute color.
And then things got weird...
- Card says: Peter Thomas Roth Max Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel but I received Kerastase Elixir Ultime (.16 fl oz sample) - The directions were in French so I had to go the website to figure out this hair gel can be used to smooth frizz, applied to damp hair to help damage and condition. It can do it all!
- Card says: Tarte LipSurgence lip tint but I received Fresh's Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 (.08 oz sample) - It claims to moisturize, repair and protect while leaving a hint of color. I've never tried it so I'll let ya know!

There was also a special discount code for ModCloth included but you only get $10 off when your order is $75. And there was a subscription offer for Teen Vogue as well.

Overall, it wasn't that impressive of a box once again. But someone made a good point that they give a good box every few months so that you'll stay a member. I'll probably be canceling once I reach a year (which is only 2 months away). P.S. MyGlam lost my bag so I'm still waiting on that... I felt like all the boxes were slow this month except Sample Society.

What did you end up getting in your box?


  1. I still haven't gotten my box for this month earlier. I only have a 3 month subscription because I won a giveaway. I'm just not that great at remembering to use samples. I did use the perfume and polish from last month's box though...

  2. I got the same box as you and I'm really mad. I wanted the Tarte LipSurgence-- got one from Sephora a month ago and I like it a lot. This was only my second Birchbox but I already cancelled my subscription. I'm tired of everyone getting better products than me.

    1. Oh wow, you are more decisive than me haha I probably should cancel since I don't need 3 beauty boxes but I had high hopes for the Teen Vogue collaboration. It's the first time they've switched out products for me which I find odd.

  3. I don't do this box scheme but I can tell you that I am a very big fan of Fresh' products. Did you try the lip treatment yet? What did you think?

  4. I can't believe you were missing stuff from the box and they didn't have a card to explain the product. Boo!

  5. How did you get the teen vogue box? I did not. Mine was super regular!!! Jealous!

  6. I LOVE Fresh's Sugar lip treatments! Rose is my favorite. Weird that you didn't get the Tarte lipsurgence, though. I have a friend who swears by the Kerastase product, maybe it will work wonders for you too! I'd love to try it. And that Essie shade is gorgeous! It reminds me of Butter London's Rosie Lee, it's the perfect springtime color. I love the whole Luxe Effects collection, but Shine of the Times is my favorite!


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
