Stila: Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner - Curacao - 1.7 ml - A full size Stila eyeliner! Wahoo for Birchbox! When I saw that the Curacao eyeliner was blue and sparkly I was a little scared but it is really beautiful! It is a very unique shade of blue and a bit sheer so it is really nice layered over other liners. The sparkles are blue, silver and pink giving the liner a periwinkle blue/purple color from a distance. I'm not so sure that the sheer nature of this liner will translate as well in the brown and black shades that are offered, but this blue shade is really beautiful. I should also mention that I am not a liquid eyeliner girl and I found this one really easy to use and it lasted a good 12 hours (when I took it off) without smudging or flaking. - Full Size 1.7 ml $22

These were one time use sample packettes. The shampoo and conditioner were really nice, I'm just not sure they are worth the price tag, for me. I usually do not splurge on hair care. I went through a Fekkai phase and I've been debating my first Ojon purchase, but I usually shop at the drugstore for my hair care. After using these my hair was soft and had a bit more body than usual. I shampoo & condition every other day and the best part about this duo is that my roots did not look or feel at all oily on the end of the second day. This duo is really nice, I just don't know that I saw enough of a difference to justify a $74 purchase.
Trivia Sweepstakes - There was also a card for a Trivia Sweepstakes on Facebook to coincide with the finale of Gossip Girl with the chance to win a $500 Birchbox shopping spree. It is a great prize and I would totally enter if I followed the show so this is nice for all of you Gossip Girl fans out there!
