A sapphire sautoir and ring from Elizabeth Taylor’s personal jewelry collection.
Last week, intrepid Birchbox Man editor Martin stopped by the oh-so-glamorous Cannes Film Festival. He got an insider’s peek at all the chic goings on—even walking the red carpet at the celebratory 50th anniversary screening of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton’s classic Cleopatra. Have you always been curious to know what really happens at one of the fanciest film fests in the world? Us too. Here’s a look behind-the-scenes:

The moment you start reading Alex Yeske’s dreams + jeans blog, you know one thing for sure: the girl has excellent taste. Musing on everything from fashion to beauty to design, the recent Syracuse grad has a knack for spotting pretty things — a skill that no doubt serves her well in her day job as a graphic designer for Madewell. This week, we’re lucky enough to have her guest blogging for us about everything from her beauty must-haves to how to get the perfect blow dry.
I love trying out new products (who doesn’t?) and love it even more when I find something amazing to add to my daily routine. These are my essential every day products, and I can’t imagine life without them.
Laura Mercier Eyeliner in Stormy Grey: I love the color of this eyeliner — it’s perfect for every day and isn’t too harsh a contrast against my fair skinr.
Bobbi Brown Extreme Party Mascara: I love mascara and discovered this one earlier in the summer. It makes my lashes look long and full and works just as well for day as it does for a night out.
Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Rose: I’m starting to wear more lip stuff now and this lip tint has been the perfect transition product for me. It’s super moisturizing, smells fabulous, and gives a nice sheer application of color.
Clinique Superdefense Moisturizer: I’ve been using this lotion for over five years! It’s a great moisturizer and I love that it has SPF 25 in it.
Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline : My signature scent. Enough said.
Living Proof Shampoo and Conditioner: I actually just started using this a week ago and have already added it to my must-haves. It leaves my hair soft, silky, and frizz-free.
Another major essential? These towelettes.
This week we’re lucky to have Natalie Zfat as our guest blogger. As the co-founder of The Road Tested, a product review site committed to delivering honest, fearless critiques of beauty’s biggest brands on the road, Zfat is more than up for the challenge. In fact, she could do this sort of thing in her sleep. Zfat first got into the world of products and electronics while working in the editorial department at Rolling Stone, and now spends her time editing TRT and and working at New York events startup Poison Ivy.
Shoutout to Birchbox for including a sample of Bvlgari’s sexy, yet complex Mon Jasmin Noir eau de parfum in May’s box.
The Road Tested has been absolutely addicted to the musky jasmine scent for the last few weeks, rocking it during a slew of epic Tribeca Film Festival parties and a night with our favorite rock band.
Pick up BVLGARI Mon Jasmin Noir and our other favorite scents in our Birchbox Shop.
We are really classing it up these days: BVLGARI is one of our newest brand partners and we’re stoked to be selling their latest fragrance, Mon Jasmin Noir. It’s sophisticated, romantic, and the company swears that wearing it is like traipsing around a Mediterranean Eden. We’re not sure about you, but that sounds pretty heavenly to us. Needless to say, we’re envious of the future winners in our latest sweepstakes where we’re giving away fragrance baskets chock-full of Mon Jasmin Noir goodies. More specifically, ten people will receive a bottle of the perfume, the body lotion, the shower gel, and the mini rollerball. Each prize is worth $168—click here to enter now!
