First Impressions: Birchbox Vanity Affair Box


I have been eyeing the limited edition Birchbox Vanity Affair box  ( since they first posted it. However, I waited until this weekend to purchase it- I was able to use the Black Friday 25% off code, combined with 200 points, I got it for about $60. Not as cheap as I’ve gotten some Birchbox purchases, but this box is well worth that price. The box contains:

This box includes:
BY TERRY Baume de Rose : Who hasn’t heard about thus cult favorite? It can be used either as a lip balm, both of which are needed this winter. I tested it out last night and can already see what all the hype is about.
Chantecaille Luminous Gloss (Lychee) : This lipgloss is supposed to hydrate lips and add shine for up to 6 hours. It’s so beautiful I will use it regardless of how long it lasts.
JINsoon Nail Lacquer  (Coquette, Nostalgia) : I’m actually very excited about these two nail polishes! The colors are beautiful and colors I also reach for- red on my toes, and nude on my fingers
Maison Caulières Perfumed Bath Oil : I love taking baths but usually just just use drugstore bubble baths..I’m so excited to use such a luxurious, beautiful bath oil!
MAKE Calypso Palette : I’ll be the first to admit I don’t need a new eyeshadow palette, but this one has some bright blues I don’t have in other palettes (I only have neutral/nude palettes), so this will be great for times I’m feeling adventurous.
Rosanna Alhambra Medium Vessel : I have had this in my Birchbox favorites list for ages! I kept putting it off saying I didn’t really need it, so seeing it in this box convinced me to splurge!
Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray : I don’t necessarily need more volume in my hair, but I’ll try it anyway.
SHU UEMURA Art of Hair Essence Absolue Oil-in-Cream : I used this product as soon as I took it out of the box. It was a great scent and helped my hair to dry frizz-free!
Stephanie Johnson Tinseltown Gold Jewelry Tray : This is the item I’m least excited about. I will probably use it as a catch-all on my nightstand.
Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment : This serum gives you a glow while plumping skin. It’s really expensive ($105 for 1oz), so I hope I don’t fall in love!
Tata Harper Cheek and Lip Tint (Very Charming): I love lip tints, so I’m excited to try this on my lips and cheeks. It’s a pretty pink color too.
TOCCA Eau de Parfum, Margaux : This bottle is beautiful and will look great in my perfume collection. I really love the scent too, different than the florals I usually prefer.

All in all, I love this box and happy I splurged. What do you think of it?
