birchbox [may] - gossip girl

This month's Birchbox was centered around everything an Upper East-sider would need to get ready for a glamorous night out. Although my Birchbox did not arrive until just after Gossip Girl's season finale, I still enjoyed all of the products inspired by one of my favorite TV shows!
 BlenderCleanser, by beautyblender, is an earth-friendly cleanser specifically for makeup brushes and sponges. Up until now, I have always used regular soap to clean my makeup tools, but this lavender-scented sensitive formula is sure to do a better job.
 You can never go wrong by sending a thank you note when you attend an event or receive a gift. These notecards by Birchbox are simple enough to be used for a quick note that will leave a much nicer impression than a text or email.
 Flor y Canto, a fragrance by Arquiste, is a floral scent that dances the line between light and intense. It's perfect for daytime, but can also carry you into night. Flor y Canto is one of Arquiste's scents created to evoke a specific moment in history-- this one being an Aztec summer festival in the 1400's.
This Regenerative Anti-Aging Moisturizer, by Algenist, is a wrinkle-fighting cream that promotes cell regeneration with alguronic acid. It went on smooth and light with a natural and refreshing citrus-y scent.

Birchbox was what first turned me on to Stila products and the Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner does not fail to uphold the quality I expect from a Stila product. Although the "Starry" black color was more gray than I expected, the sparkle is subtle enough to wear for day or night.
