LOL....I totally wrote that in my blog post early today.  It does have a powdery smell.  I didn't care for it at all but I thought the packaging was super cute :o)

Yeah, I've worn the same perfume for as long as I remember and I've never found any others that I like lol. The packaging was definitely adorable though! Much cuter than the standard twist/spray top vial.

It's always so hard to resist the urge to peek when it takes forever for my box to get here every month :(

post #1474 of 2328

Got my box today

I think it was #7

Chuao honeycomb: I pretty much opened my box and ripped this open. Not impressed its basically a better quality dark chocolate crunch bar

Stila in Rosegold

Curl Keeper: I'm excited to see if this works

Joeur: I was excited, but too floral for me (is it just me or is birchbox obsessed with either ultra feminine scents (or male colognes in some cases)---more me though, I'm very picky with fragrances

Fibre Lashextend: ehh, i'm a Diorshow convert so I doubt I'll like this

seriously, unless its like orange or purple (or green, blue or yellow) its pretty hard for a lip gloss to "not go with my coloring"

 

its pink, humans are full of blood, making our lips some shade of pink, therefore pinks look good on everybody, it might not be your most favorite shade, but pinks are safe colors.

I received handsoap (the two small packets), a lipgloss that didn't go with my coloring (which is annoying because its listed in my beauty profile), body serum that spilled all over inside that little baggy so I'm not sure I even want to reach in and take it out, and the texturizing spray. The scent was a masculine scent, and on my little card it even said to gift it to a boy. Pretty worthless box.

I liked mine, I got one in chamomille and I hate the scent. I got another in lavender in my other box and that one smells ok... I really want neroli and interested in trying rose. The oil absorbs well into my skin, but I dont think its worth 39 a bottle though.

I heard back from customer service about the deluxe sub, and it is going to be featured in the gift shop.

 

 

I have two guesses for what it is, either a really bog first box full of products and then 12 months of a regular subscription, or

the same 12 monthly boxes + 1 full size products every month <- this one I would probably go for.

It's funny, because sometimes a color won't look right on me and I'll blame my coloring, until I see someone with my coloring wearing the same color and it looks great.  Sometimes things just don't look right on a person.  I dislike myself in red, even if it's the 'right red' for my skin tone.

 

Pink is definitely safe, the only pink I've ever seen look terrible on anyone are the frosty pinks my girlfriends and I wore in 7th grade before we discovered that one shade of '90s brown.  Lawd.

There's a whole thread about it over here.  Someone found a whole lot of spoilers!

thank you! some one did some serious detective work!

 

it seems as if some people are receiving a "Holiday Gift Guide" in their birchboxes... well soon there will be one online. the link http://www.birchbox.com/shop/holiday-gift-guide doesn't seem to work. but after some fiddling around with it I at least got a screen shot. i feel like those deluxe subscriptions will be under the left column.  700

I received the chamomile scent.  I would have preferred lavender or neroli but I thought it was really good.  It was moisturizing and didn't leave my hands all greasy which was surprising considering it's consistency.

post #1486 of 2328

Oh and that reminds me...how do we get the link to our trade lists to show up down there on our posts?

post #1487 of 2328

I don't understand how to do the trade thing, it seems complicated. What ever happened to the BB trade thread, that seems simpler, but i don't see a new one started after the last one closed confused.gif 

But, if anyone is interested in them let me know

I'm with you, I would definitely shell out for an extra full size in every box. I'm kinda excited about it now, I'm gonna go check out that thread someone found now haha

It's very light and absorbs quickly. If you're looking for super deep moisture, I'd recommend something with shea butter instead. If you are looking for light moisture and a light, lovely scent, this is perfect. I got the chamomile and I love it!

post #1493 of 2328

Hi! For anyone who has received the Stila luminizer in their boxes do you mind posting what color your received and what your skin color in your birchbox profile is? So far I think people have been posting that they've gotten the pink color which I'd love to get! I'm so excited about trying this luminizer since I've never tried a highlighter before and from pictures it seems that it makes your skin so gorgeous looking

I got mine last night/early this morning.  The subject line was something about The other holiday I should be celebrating.  

 

I think they're generic so 6months20 would be the 6 month one, right?

I hope mine is rose!  Anything but lavender.  Blech.

I LOVE the body serum. It absorbs into the skin very fast and doesn't leave any oily residue. My skin feels very moisturized and silky after using it. I got the chamomile scent which I think smells soooo good. I'm definitely buying a full size!

Were all those little items in one cracker or a few different ones?  Thank you for sharing pictures; I have been so curious!

I didn't think I would care for it but I'm obsessed with it!! It smells amazing. I got chammomile. It is so expensive but I have to get it. I will keep hoarding points until I have enough. I so recommend it!
