Birchbox Limited Edition Vanity Affair Box Review


The limited edition Birchbox Vanity Affair Box is beautiful, elegant, and a perfect gift idea for yourself or a loved one. This box is meant to bring luxury into the recipients life, and I believe it does just that. It has a variety of beauty and lifestyle products, and you get a lot of luxury for your money.



The box is priced at $98 and has value of over $300!


There are several discount codes available to try if you would like to order the box and are hesitant about the $98 price tag. If you have not already used them MOBILE20 or TAKEOFF20 will take 20% off your total purchase. Also, make sure you remember to add a free Mystery Sample Pack to your order.

The Birchbox Vanity Affair Box contains the following items:


Serge Normant Dream Big Instant Volumizing Spray ($10): I cannot wait to try this volumizing spray! I have enjoyed using other Serge Normant products, and I think this should be great for adding lift to second day hair.

Sunday Riley Good Genes Treatment ($35): The Sunday Riley brand is new to me, but this product looks amazing. It can be used as a mask or daily serum and is supposed to plump fine lines and fade dark spots.


By Terry Baume de Rose SPF 15 ($18) - This product is a wonderful, rose scented lip balm. It can also be used as a cuticle salve. I absolutely love the scent, and the fact that it has a dual purpose means I may put it in my travel bag.


Chantecaille Luminous Gloss in Lychee ($34) - This beautiful, pink gloss has a great shine to it. It is hydrating and not very sticky. I always find those two factors to be a plus with gloss.


Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint in Very Charming ($35): I must start with the fact that the packaging on this tint is beautiful. I really want to leave it out as decoration. The dual purpose tint inside is a rosy pink and is almost as beautiful as the jar it is in.


Make Calypso Palette ($40): This item is a Birchbox exclusive. The colors are a lovely combination of matte and shimmery shades, but I am not sure that I can use all of them. I will have to decide whether to keep this palette or gift it.


Tocca Eau de Parfum in Margaux ($20): I have been a fan of Tocca since a dear friend first introduced me to her signature scent (Cleopatra). This scent is a combination of citrus and floral. The packaging is so elegant, and I cannot wait to display it.


Shu Uemura Art Of Hair Essence Absolue Oil-in-Cream ($13.60): This leave-in cream helps smooth away frizz. This is something that I have a lot of trouble with in the summer, so I may save it until then.

Maison Caulieres Perfumed Bath Oil ($16.50): A rose scented bath oil with rose petals suspended inside. I cannot wait to take a relaxing bath with this. Baths themselves are a luxury, so items like this put them over the top.


Stephanie Johnson Tinseltown Gold Jewelry Tray ($30): This adorable travel tray is a Birchbox exclusive. It never crossed my mind to travel with a jewelry tray, but I look forward to putting this on my dresser or bedside table.


Jin Soon Nail Lacquer in Nostalgia and Coquette ($18 each): Jin Soon is a new brand for me, but I am excited to try these polishes. The red will be perfect for the holidays, and the more neutral Nostalgia is a great all purpose color.


Rosanna Alhambra Medium Vessel ($22): This beautiful jar is one of the main reasons I jumped on the opportunity to buy this box. I cannot wait to add this to my bedroom decor.

Birchbox did an amazing job with the Limited Edition Vanity Affair Box. I am so happy that I ordered it and cannot wait to see what Birchbox puts together next.
