May 2012 Birchbox Video Review

So I spent a week enjoying my Gossip Girl themed Birchbox before I reviewed it for you. Here are my thoughts on what you might like, and what you might want to pass up.

    I’ve gotten those Twistbands twice before. I hate them. They don’t hold my hair at all, and they look totally homemade. My friend Marcie, however, loves them–so she now owns both the ones I got in my Birchboxes!

    Wonderful video! You are looking gorgeous, as ever.

    • Thanks Freya. You’re so sweet. I really liked everything except my Twistband. Lame! I might use it for my girls’ hair. Just watched your Vox Box video and you make me laugh!

  2. Awww, you’re so pretty, Lipstick Gal! You might like to know that “Lola” and I watched your video blog together. I decided that “Lola” is my little girl’s nom de guerre. 😉 is it dangerous for me to introduce her to cosmetics when she is so young? Oh well. C’est la vie!

    • It’s never too early to introduce our girls to makeup done right. They’ll see all sorts of make up everywhere they go, so I think it’s important to know what’s good, and how to wear it. When it’s finally time to do it, they’ll already have good habit built in. At least I’m hoping so. My girls already know what everything is, and what “going to the counter” means.

    Hi! I was so relieved/reassured to find you had the same problem with the “Color Club – Clambake” nail polish that I did! I found it to be very streaky and even (gasp!) stringy. I also thought it might be my base coat, so I started over… Unfortunately, it was no better – maybe even worse – minus the base coat. I also felt that the longer the bottle was open, and with each subsequent nail, the texture and application became worse. That said, I too LOVED the color and really wanted to do a full mani/pedi with “Clambake”. Disappointingly, by the time I got to my third toe on my first foot, the polish was unusable… It was literally balling up in clumps. How unattractive! I have never been so disatisfied with a nail polish. Lol. Anyway, sorry for the rant, just wanted to let you know that it wasn’t only your bottle that turned out that way. Now I’m wondering if it was it just this particular batch of polish? Or the “Clambake” formula itself? It seems my search continues for the perfect coral nail polish.

    Big P.S. – I love your site! You are very informative and entertaining. Keep up the great work!

    • Leah,

      thanks for checking out my blog. I’m sorry that Clambake didn’t work for you either. I loved the color, but not the formula. I haven’t tried it since my first application. I should see if a few drops of Orly Nail Polish Thinner will help. My last Color Club polish from Birchbox was amazing. Both the color and the ease of application was fantastic. I was really dissatisfied with this how Clambake turned out. I was expecting to purchase a Color Club polish, but now I’m gun shy.
