I really played with the mascara this morning... It's kind of ridiculous how long it made my eyelashes.  They are almost touching my eyebrows!

I'm getting the mascara, too.  Obviously, since I just bought four of my regular fave AND got the Body Builder from myGlam last month (which turned out to be AMAZING), and then got three of the Lancome ones from the itKits from Sophora.  I'm sure I'll end up getting They're Real from myGlam this month, too,  ;) so this'll have a lot of competition.  I've never really compared mascaras before.  It'll be very interesting to see how all of these stack up!!!

If anyone has MOX or the spray oil and wants to do a trade; let me know.  I have lot of stuff from BB and IPSY.


Thanks

I have a MOX for you :)

Booo--no shipping email for me and the tracking number on the site hasn't updated!  :(  I never get my notice this late.  I know things were going to be delayed because of the hurricane but my mom's box shipped days ago and we live in the same zip code!

of course it's fair enough that my husband thinks i look like a psycho and has to take pictures...

post #1176 of 2328

Oh, is that the brightening mask from last month? I scared my roommates with it!

 

Updates for those whose pages haven't changed yet. I just called, and even though my page is still October, Molly was awesome and told me what box I'm getting, so maybe it's the same for you?

My second account is box 20, so I'm pleased. I really wanted that mascara. Of course, I'll have two of the Miracle Perfector and the perfume, but I think I'll like the first item enough to want two, and I'll either get the perfume away or trade. So yay!

They are not shipped by location, boxes are shipped in waves by box number.

I have to say this month's BB is the worst that I have received.  It was all a skincare and 3 of the products were from the same company.  So dissapointed.  I am really considering cancelling.

I received the chamomile fragrance.

Did she tell you when the box would be shipping? My main acct still shows Oct's box and there is no shipping info.

 

Thanks

I agree. I can't have gluten and I'm always a little bummed out if there's food that contains it in my box, but I get over it soon enough and someone in my family will eat it eventually, so it's not a waste. (I'd still rather not get food in my box, but it's not a cancellation point for me). I do think that BB should at least stop sending food products that have nuts in them though, but like you said, there's a chance of the cosmetics containing them as well so it's difficult to find where to draw the line. If I had severe allergies, I don't think I would risk getting a subscription service where I could potentially just open my package and end up in the hospital. It's just not worth it.

Nope, just that there was a delay. I'm not too worried about it, as I expected this because of the Hurricane. I'm just glad that there's no issue. =)

post #1183 of 2328

I have box 20, and while my box page has updated, I've gotten no email and there's no shipping info.  Looks like 20 is a later one in general.  Edit to ad ~ the ones with the Miracle Skin Transformer didn't have pix of the box with contents until later (had the big pix at the bottom, but not the items by the box), so maybe that product was late getting to them.

No, it was the John Varvatos Artisan, although I have received an Atelier fragrance and had a similar "where did it go?" experience. So very sad!

If you're interested in super moisturizing stuff, you may like Savvy Boheme's whipped cocoa butter. I got a sample in my Goodebox this month, and it moisturizes like nothing else. It takes about 30 seconds to soak into your skin before you stop looking especially shiny, but it feels sooooo goood all day long. The Shea Terra whipped body butters are great, too, but this one was more soothing than the Shea Terra, at least for me. I also enjoy the fragrance immensely, but it isn't so strong that it outlasts/overpowers your fragrance (like Palmer's Cocoa Butter). It smells like orange-infused dark chocolate.

Also, maybe someone pointed it out already, but I'm wondering why BB has 2013 listed in the box URLs?? Someone is ready for next year! :)

Back to BB, I have $60 to spend...but I can't decide on what to get.  Everything looks so good but then I think...good enough?  Geez.  15hg.gif  I need to get off the computer for today I think.  LOL

Btw, a friend of mine also signed up NBTT on my recommendation this weekend. So I emailed customer service to confirm which tube she (and you) will be getting...do you want to know? Or want to be surprised?!

Does anyone else LOVE the lipgloss? 11a.gif

 

At first, I was like what kind of basic ass, generic, dollar store packaging is this? It felt really flimsy and the mirror just looked off, but then I put it on and I was amazed at how much I liked it. It smells nice, and it went on so smooth! I now see why it is $18 on the BB site. So happy!

I agree - the packaging isn't luxurious, but the product itself is great (not sticky, smooth application, sheen lasts for a relatively long time)

 

I'm interested in trading for another lip gloss (preferably not used/swatched) if anyone sees something on my trade list that intrigues them!  smile.gif

post #1191 of 2328

Okay while I haven't got my box yet I did see what both my subs got.  I canceled my 2nd sub after only 3 months nothing was good and I replaced it with another.

I got box 3 and 9

post #1192 of 2328

Looks like I will get box #11, got an email from Birchbox on Friday but tracking number is still not active.

post #1193 of 2328

Still no clue on what I'm getting and no tracking info either. Also no mail today boo ;(

post #1194 of 2328

I am signing up for test-tube does anyone want me to use them as my referral?

post #1195 of 2328

First post!   I've been lurking for a long time.   What happened to the Birchbox Swap thread?   I can't find it, but I'd love to swap a couple things out from this box.

NM I found it.
