Same. I really wish they would offer an option for something more like BB France, Spain, UK.

AMEN. I'd totally give them twenty more bucks if it meant a bigger samples/better items!

I think they're fine for what I pay, because I appreciate getting high end brands. But I'm always a little jealous of how cute the Euro ones are.

This was exactly what I thought it was. I was very excited until I figured out what it really is. Blech.

I must have missed that email or deleted it without really paying attention to it.  Would someone have a link?  Thanks!

I'm like 99% sure I didn't get it, so I'm thinking they didn't send it to everyone.

They are out of the necklaces. Too bad, I would've gone for it.:icon_sad:

 I agree 100%. I saw this on my phone at red light and nearly had to pull over because I was so excited. But then I saw the concept and the price, and we meh. The $20 tag for a single $30 item I might not like isn't a value or a deal to me.

Seriously? That sold out? I am actually surprised. Not necessarily because of the item but the price. I might have done it for $10.

Maybe lazy people need some giftable items for the holidays LOL.

I know. I like the cute drawstring bags they get.

The necklace sold out already? There must not have been that many available.

It was a little steep, but I Iiked that color to go with the burgundy clothing and shoes I have. Judging by what people on here think about it, I guess the people who jumped on it weren't  MUA'ers.;)

I think if the knot was tied different I would have adored that necklace...it's just a little...off. The color was GORGEOUS though!

Hopefully they'll do more bonus/upgrade stuff in the future! Clearly there's interest! Some peeps out there wanted that necklace, that's for sure!

Yeah, I'm wondering if they had such a small amount this time around to "test the waters" so to speak.

post #288 of 2431

it looked kind of clunky. i cringed when i saw it and double cringed when i saw they wanted $20 extra for it. 

 

PASS

post #289 of 2431

Agree with everyone - I liked the concept but didn't like the necklace.  I'm glad they sold out because the email said they were "trying something new" (or something along those lines), so since it was so popular, hopefully they'll keep it up!  

 

I did wonder if buying it locked you into a particular box it came with (like everyone with a necklace gets box #12 or something), or if they would add it on to whatever box went with your profile.  For all of our talk about them not actually using profiles to pick boxes, mine have been really great (for me) the last few months and I wouldn't want to do anything to mess that up!

I LOVE the European boxes, I'm always jealous.  I would love it if they would offer something closer to those for maybe an extra $10 like the cost of the men's boxes.

Do you ladies all receive emails from birchbox every once in a while? I don't know why but in my main account I never ever receive emails about offers, news or codes (at least not for over a year) and it's my 25th month with them now. In my second account (that I only had activated for a month last year) I regularly receive emails, but I don't really care because I never use that account for anything any more. Now for my main account, last time I checked I was registered to receive emails but I still never did. Since they changed the website I cannot find where I should go to do that... does anybody here know?

I didn't get the email, either.  I've noticed that I only get emails from them every once in a while, as well and I know I opted in to receive all their emails.

OMG. I would need sooooo many Liz Earle boxes for that, lol! I'm still trying to put all my vials into tiny ziplock baggies and label them all. Then, I need to find a good storage method that leaves the labels showing. Not easy. But using the Liz Earle as a temporary measure when I get new samples in could be a good idea. That way I could save them up for a while before bothering to label them. :D

I had this problem, contact BB support!  I still don't get emails with tracking but atleast I get everything else (I believe....)

So I just received a BB order with my first ever mystery pack...

I got the Davines This is a Sea Salt spray.  It's half empty, all beat up looking, and the spray hole is covered in a crusty residue.  Is it normal to get such bootleg samples with the mystery packs?

I got my mystery pack last week and i got a full size pixie mascara and an instain blush sample

I feel like i'm on such a roll with neat tricks for birchbox goodies. I never got a beautyblender but I also bought a 2 pack with my 16month. We're suppose to use it wet but it feels TOO damp if I prep it right before I apply liquid foundation or bb/cc/dd cream. I have resorted to giving it a rinse before bed at night so I dries a little overnight and it's perfection by morning makeup time.

 

Now I just keep my fingers crossed that I get pink egg sponge in my box in the future so I have a spare. I hate that I love it.

I got one in my September box and the neck of my bottle was super crusty. I think it's just the nature of the product. Also, the packaging of the pick twos (at least the ones I've received) are in bubble wrap envelopes, maybe a usps issue?

I've never been super excited about my pick twos, but mine have always been free so I can't complain.

Regarding perfume storage, a friend uses ammo boxes for her vials!
