I registered for the Ann Taylor Chicago event- I've just gotten my shipping notification, but no invite to the event and I have a Chicago address!  But I registered anyways- I went to the Benefit event a few months ago and it was -amazing-.

Do you have to be a Birchbox subscriber to attend? My friend wants to come with me but she doesn't have Birchbox yet.

Yay!  Lipstick!  And I've used the moisturizer before and LOVED IT!  But... Foot wipes.  And boob tape.  And anti-aging stuff.  Meh.  Meh, I say!  I can't even see those trading well.  So... kinda hoping for another version of a .44 lbs box?  The upside is, if I do get it, it's an $8 lipstick, some moisturizer, and a $5 store credit, so I'm still coming out ahead!  

 

Haha, that was where my less than enthusiastic feelings were coming from but after thinking about it a bit - I am feeling better about the box.

Nope - you just need to fill out your name, email address, and how many tickets (2 limit) you want.

My box has arrived - no photo but here's what's inside.

Box weight was .525

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Dr. Jart Premium BB Cream
Jasmine Seven Fresh Feet Wipes
ModelCo Party Proof in Kitty ( this came broken in the lid, hoping BB will make it right!)
Number 4 Super Comb Prep & Protect spray
Beauty Extra - Miss Jessie's Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo

 

I've already FB messaged BB about my broken lippy - probably a result of spending all day in a hot mail truck!

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'm happy because the one thing I really didn't want was the Tan Towel.

post #1210 of 2635

I just registered for the Seattle (Bellevue) Ann Taylor event. Next Thursday...very exciting!!

post #1211 of 2635
No box, but my Amika Hair Mask I ordered arrived! It's huuuuuge! Love it! I also got a nice mystery pick 2! A full size Stila bronzer and jouer illuminizer.
post #1212 of 2635

Still waiting on a clicky truck for my first account, I hope I get something good since they have me waiting so long.

Yup. Apparently the eyeliner retails for $21, if I'm not mistaken, BUT I don't know anything about its quality.

 

Cailyn Gel liner is awesome! I have 2 of them and they apply very smoothly and once they set they are damn near bulletproof!

then add in your rice krispies and crushed up pretzels.

spread it out into a pan and sprinkle mini choco chips on the top.

 

they are dangerously delicious.

 

just an fyi, trader joes is the best coconut oil to use for this because it still has a cocnut-y flavor, where as some of them, through processing, lose that flavor.

 

Definitely saving this recipe to try out soon! Sounds delicious!

If bb starts using these cheaper brands that ipsy uses I might have to drop it also frown.gif

I would do if BB does that.

Minneapolis?!!!! Omg there's NEVER any events here!!

I clicked the link and it's not actually in Minneapolis, it's at the Mall of America which is a 1/2 hr away from Minneapolis (without traffic). I was super excited because I work 2 blocks away from the downtown Minneapolis Anne Taylor! I still registered because they will probably never come here again.

Juice Beauty Oil-Free Moisturizer - 15ml
ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick - Disco Fever

Speaking of Ann Taylor - anyone going to the Boston even on 8/15?


I'm going to the Boston event.  Will be nice to meet other BB fans!

post #1220 of 2635
I kept checking for box contents that Zadidoll posted earlier. Still 404's! I wonder if BB saw this and knew about it so they're holding it out until the 10th? 😕

My gift acct showed to deliver on 12th but it's already in a sorting facility an hr away from where I am. It will deliver tmrw. Still no clicky truck on my original acct.

My gift account box surprised me today, 4 days early! icon_cheesygrin.gif
 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Created with Vignette for Android Filter: None Frame: No frame Scene mode: Auto White balance: Auto Sensitivity: Auto Focus distance: Auto Metering mode: Center Anti-banding: Auto

 

No.4 Super Comb & Protect - I wanted this last month so I am super excited to receive this! 

Dr. Jart+ Premium BB Cream - I have always heard great things about Dr. Jart+ bb creams so I will give this a whirl.

ModelCo Party Proof Lipstick in Dusk Til Dawn - Happy to get another lippie but I'm not sure this color is right for my skin tone. May have to trade.

OC8 Professional Mattifying Gel - Not sure I have any real need for this. As someone who has skin on the drier side, I have never had an issue with shine.

Birchbox Bobby Pins (grey) - I still haven't used the green ones I got last month but I also don't really wear green so maybe this color will see some use.

 

 

Overall, I am pretty happy with this box! I'm still waiting for a clicky truck on my main account. Hopefully it will update soon!

Ditto. I wouldn't be able to get #4 again either. Same weight too. I traded it away bec I already have one in a full size.

I just signed up as well! See you two there ;) 
post #1227 of 2635

Box Wt: 0.44

 

What was inside:

 

1) Dr. Jart BB Cream (45 spf) - at first it seemed rather pale on me but it warmed up nicely. Smells really nice and makes my skin soft

 

2) Jasmine Seven (feet wipes) - I am mixed about this, but will come in handy - will be thrown into my handbag

 

3) ModelCo Lipstick - I would have LOVED this except it is a really awful orangey-coral kinda color (Disco Fever) - did a little swatch on my (clean) hand and decided that it will go in with my grab bag for others to go through.

 

4) Violet Oasis (100% Organic Argan Oil) - will like to try this in my hair when I straighten it tomorrow before work.

 

5) TanTowel - Biggest disappointment for me.  Again this will go into the grab bag.  I know there are two camps on this type of product...I wish they offered an option on such products (I think Ipsy does this)  

 

So 3 out of 4 products is not horrible. 

I got a full size product - (although the "full size" actually comes in a set of 3 in the store) 

The oil - is enough to be able to figure out if I like it.

Wish the BB was a bit bigger.

Wipes - they gave me two.

Ditto! It's called PENNISULA! Maybe they did that bec there are more BB subscribers in that area? I'm in East Bay
post #1229 of 2635

Yay! My second account's box came in!  I got...

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

- ModelCo lipstick in Til Dusk Til Dawn (totally a MLBB shade for me)
- Violet Oasis Argan Oil (Yay, I want all the hair oils!)
- Miss Jessie's deep conditioning treatment foils (I am looking forward to these too)
- Juice Beauty Moisturizer (I've already found my HG moisturizer so I don't think I'll use this)
- Bobby pins (I don't use bobby pins, so these don't add anything for me but I do think they're cute)

 

 

Really happy overall!  My main account's box will probably get here Saturday.  :) Can't wait!

 

Edited because I'm a terrible speller.. haha

haha I thought the same thing! but I'm going, since PA and SF are about the same distance from me anyway! I'm too curious, and my cousin loves Ann Taylor so she's coming with me.. if anything, hopefully I'll score one of those complimentary boxes!
