(Spoilers) Birchbox October 2013

post #1 of 1817
Thread Starter 

What are you all wanting in your October box?  I'm hoping for some great fall makeup, and the return of heavier moisturizers and hand creams!

post #2 of 1817
No Dr. Lipp. Lanolin = Ick.

Fall nail polish, dark lip stick, and moistrizers without SPF would all be great. I would love to see the Sumita eyeliners again.

Updates!

dark lipsticks (I NEED SOME, i'm sick of all my pinks and corals), skin stuff as always, a nice sultry perfume from atelier, and i agree about the sumita eyeliners too, i got black last time but would love to try the dark blue for fall.

 

ALSO a dark instain would be wonderful (or any dark blush), something kind of plum/mauve.

Anything but lipstick. I am hoping they sample the Caudalie hand cream again.

Oooh, yes!  I know some people are hugely anti-perfume, but I do love the smaller luxury brand ones (i.e. Folle de Joie and Atelier scents!)

 
I would also love a Sumita color in NOT-black!  Maybe a nice olive or purple...

I want hand cream too! Hopefully one that isn't heavily scented

I would love to break my perfume drought this month. A nice new Atelier scent would be wonderful.

Updates please! I would love any sample from benefit...since I havent yet received one in my box.
post #10 of 1817

Updates!  I'd love to see a return of some of the products from September.  There were lots that I wanted to try and didn't get to--Voesh, caudalie, etc.

post #11 of 1817
Updates. Would love to try an instain blush, or anything from thebalm, really. September was good to me, and October is my 13th box/month so here's hoping for another good one!!

I just totally revamped my profile after having a string of boxes that just didn't seem "right" for me. I won't say I've had box envy but lately the hair products I've gotten have been a total bust and made my hair look WORSE hahaha. I tried to change it up yet still keep it true to myself, so lets see how it works.

post #13 of 1817

Updates! I'd love colored mascara OR pretty much any eyeliner that isn't black! :) Also hoping they send out amika again 'cause I want to try the blow up spray!

Agreed!  I now own 2 of these samples.  I am not putting sheep wax on my lips.

I want a vampire glamour type of theme. Rich dark colours and luxurious skincare products.

Or, simply put, I want lipstick.
post #16 of 1817
I really want to try the blow up spray as well. I also would like a Sumita eyeliner. I didn't get one last time. I've never gotten any eyeliner from Birchbox, and it's my favorite cosmetic.

I like the sound of this!

I'm overloaded with lip and makeup stuff. I haven't been able to wear make up anymore due to wearing glasses. I couldn't afford to buy more contact lenses. My prescription is +6.25 so generally my eyes looks HUGE thru magnifying glasses so you can see my long lashes and eyes so eye makeup looks funny. LOL. Without my glasses, my eyes are small so I wear semi-heavy eye makeup to make these to pop since my long lashes are dark halfway with blonde hair tips on top. As if it looks like I don't have lashes. When I get make over at dept. store or Sephora, when applying mascara, the artist was like whoa you've got long lashes ! That's because they can't see thru blonde lashes tips on top. Probably sun bleached 'em.

I would like some more skin care, hair, and hand cream (not claudalie brand sorry). I've tried a thousand different brands of hand creams. Claudalie doesn't smooth out or keep hydrated on my hands for a long period of time. I tried Egyptian Magic Cream which I got it from BB last month (Sept) and it works AWESOME. I like the fact it's multi purpose cream. It dries very quickly, smoothes out my skin, and acts on cuticule moisturizing so I don't need additional product: cuticule oil. I even applied it in a wound and it makes healing faster. It's similar to Elizabeth Arden's 8 hrs cream protectant. The problem with Arden's cream is it's made of 50% petroleum like Vaseline. Egyptian Magic Cream doesn't have that medical smell. There's another one is real good is CV SkinLabs Restorative Balm which has same consistency as Egyptian Magic Cream and no smell as well.

I don't really know what I want.  But I would love more hair stuff and something fun for Halloween.

 

My box this month was perfect for me, as were the past two months.  Hopefully this month will be just as good.

Yeah, someone mentioned it in one of other posts. I'm not a member but do live in CA. My mom is a member and is due to come visiting this Thursday! Whoa I just checked calendar. Boy, I better get busy! Hahah

Updates😊

Halloween. Just remembered the Violent Lips things. Please ... Nooo. I also second that Caudalie cream not being as awesome as other creams. I've been using it for a few days and it's not moisturizing and it takes a lot to do anything. My hands are really rough, so I thought maybe it was just me, but it's not. I'm a little disappointed because I really wanted to try it. So, now I hope Birchbox sends more Egyptian Magic cream or something like it. I have to decide on a new full-size hand cream for this Winter.

post #26 of 1817
Colored mascara, eye cream , brow gel or wax, fall nail colors, a good lip balm like Korres , tools, eye makeup remover, a bath bomb, a foot cream that really works, hair stuff but not foils, I loved the Davines.

I agree with everything unless the lipstick is red. I have gotten at least 5 red lipsticks/lipgloss in the last 2 months. I'm ready for another color!

I got the Chella brow pencil in my Ipsy August bag, and a Benefit Gimme Brow! as part of the Benefit Lashbash, so I'm all "browed out" for now!  I hope they send you ALL the brow stuff!

 

I still want to try the Stila in Beso.  Crossing my fingers it appears again in some boxes this month!
