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

 

I agree! I got a nice brow pencil in the CEW box that is the perfect fit for my hair color so I'm set on those for a while!

 
I also echo all the sentiments about getting some of the items that were missed in Septmber. It seemed like there were so many neat/interesting/different items this month and I didn't get any of them! (except the green apple peel, i cannot wait to try that!)

I am good on brows and lips.  I find myself wanting a plum/brown/mauve for fall.  I would also love some sort of bath product for the cold weather and a winter weight moisturizer.  I'm loving the Fox Hunt color for Fall!

Ooh, time to start thinking about October. Such great ideas, and another that would love a chance at a ton of the stuff I missed out of in Sept

 

eyeshadows (no coastal), jewel toned eyeliner, colored mascara

makeup primer perfect for heavier foundations in fall

extras: gorgeous barrette, hot chocolate stick (better than more tea), makeup brush

I would love some brow stuff, a really nice cuticle cream, and an eye cream. I have one eye cream right now and I'm not loving it.

I have no idea what I'm hoping for! I think I have everything I really want except a wine cream blush, which I highly doubt would ever show up in Birchbox. I think I'm going to cross my fingers for complete seasonal surprises. New stuff even if it's not necessarily seasonal would also be great. And no black eyeliner -- ever.

I'd like some blotting papers, and I hope that Amika dry shampoo makes it's way to me at some point.  

 

Thinking about giving the men's box a try for my bf's b-day.

So MSA renewed her account for yearly and checked out the $200 ultimate gift collection I think we were all curious about.

 

For another $90, I don't feel like it's worth it to get another "$100" in gifts when you could get the stuff for cheaper via their shop just worth coupons and points. If I were going to spend $90, I'd rather personally pick out what  Also, I feel like it sets BB up for some weird expectations if your first box is a bunch of full-size goodies and then you get small samplers the next 11 months...

Hi everybody! I hated being m.i.a. Last month. I missed my new "neighborhood" here! I got in a car accident labor day weekend and had a short hospital stay. Next up I have to have a procedure on the 10 th to help my poor back!! Ugh! So I may go missing a bit again but for now YAY for talkin bout makeup!!
I have a profile question. I've been trying to change mine up since I haven't gotten a good for me box yet. Every single color cosmetic has been bright coral or straight up orange. Do you think that may be because I have classic & adventurous checked? I'm more into traditional type neutrals and more berry or darker pinks for color. Orange and coral clash with my skin in a nasty way!! Even tho I'm a classic fan I DO like to play and experiment. I've surprised myself thru trying things in subs I would never think to buy then end up loving it. SOOOO I had classic & adventurous checked. I just changed it to classic but am afraid that may turn boring. Any suggestions?

I agree, it seems like a terrible deal. Not to mention that you'll possibly get repeats of the full size items anyway. Way better to spend points and/or straight up cash in the shop on things you definitely want.

I have Classic and Low Maintenance checked and I still get bright lip colors and stuff. I don't mind. I still use them. Birchbox only sends me black eyeliners, though. Eyeko and Sumita so far.

I would really love to see a good moisturizer for winter and it would also be great to get some plum colored eyeliners or eye shadows.

post #47 of 1817

I switched up my profile this month and actually put in my real age.  I've been getting more beauty items the past few months and I want to try some of these higher-end skincare brands they are carrying now...Airelle, Racinne, Grand Central Beauty. 

post #48 of 1817

Send all the lipsticks and jewel-toned eye makeup my way, please!!

post #49 of 1817

I just re-subbed for October after taking a year's hiatus from Birchbox.  I would love to see some skincare items this month, as I have more than enough makeup samples from Ipsy.  I'm just happy to be back on board! I missed the excitement that Birchbox brings each month. :)

Welcome back! Hopefully your first box back is a good one!  :icon_chee

I love that brow pencil! I worried it would break off since it's a twist up or be too dark since it only comes in one color but I have been soooo happy with it.

Welcome back to BB! I hope you get a great box this month!
If not, I'll see you on the trade thread!!

Thank you!!! I feel much more comfortable about switching now. You deserve a prize for relieving Birchbox anxiety!! biggrin.gif

I'd love a super rich night cream or moisturizer as my skin gets so dry in the colder months, a hair mask, or a nicely scented bath oil.
post #55 of 1817
I'd like something for my brow or lashes. Hopefully no candy since it's Halloween month.
post #56 of 1817

Updates. I'd like to see dark fall colors (plum, wine or red) , eye treatment, turquoise liner

You're welcome. I really think Birchbox doesn't pay attention to the profiles when it comes to lipstick, especially, because I've gotten the Jouer in Birchbox Pink, Mirenesse in Perfect Kiss (Orange, although some people say it's coral--to me it's a very orange coral), and Stila in Beso. You're not alone in trying to figure out the profile, though, but I think Classic means bright lipstick to Birchbox.
post #58 of 1817

I think bright lip colors go with the classic profile.  If you google classic makeup ads you see that almost all the ads from the 1940's and 50's have bright lips in reds and pinks.  I've always thought that a classic makeup look was anchored by a dramatic lip while being light on the eye makeup, like Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn.  Maybe that is BB's thinking behind the bright lippies for classic profiles.

I logged on to update my profile and ended up placing an order for the wrap-up and those Jane Tran bobby pins (so cute!). I've been intrigued by the wrap-up for a while, even though it has mixed reviews.
