  1. I've used the same foundation (Wei Mandarin Orange Even Skin Tone, which used to be called Wei To Go Ideal Skin Perfect Finish) for a long time. Sometimes I use the It Cosmetics concealer with it. I apply it with a beautyblender and set it with whatever loose powder I'm using at the time. I'm not doing anything different than I always have, but this has started happening out of nowhere. When I first apply my makeup it looks perfectly normal, and then within a few hours all around my eye (basically follows my orbital bone) is like 5 shades lighter than the rest of my face. It looks ridiculous, and I can't seem to do anything to stop it. I'm using no new products. My skin appears and feels the same as it always has. I have no idea wtf is happening, and I get nothing when I've tried googling. The other night when I noticed it I tried layering more foundation over it, and that worked at first but then sure enough a few hours later, it happened again, and it looked even worse due to the extra layer of makeup. Has anyone experienced anything like this? I wear makeup almost every day and this is embarrassing. One of the things that popped into my head is that maybe my foundation is oxidizing everywhere but around my eyes for some reason? Please help!

    Birchbox September 2015 (Spoilers)

    It's not necessarily a bad box, its more that there's a lack of variety with the 2 face washes and I'm disappointed that the eyeshadow, which is something I love getting, is a bad color for me. On the bright side, it's an 80 point box once I share on Facebook. Here's a picture of the eyeshadow.

    Birchbox September 2015 (Spoilers)

    I just can't win. I usually don't pick a sample, but I've been ending up with crappy boxes that way, and I always get the sample choice I'd least like. So this month, I pick the Davines because out of all the choices it's the only one I wanted at all. Of course as boxes start to populate I see that the two samples I really would have liked - the Modelco lipstick ( seriously, I've been a subscriber for over 4 years and have somehow NEVER gotten Kitty. It's like they know how bad I want it and are taunting me with it) and Gimme Brow -are in few boxes with the Davines. Figures. Anyway, here's what I got: -Malin + Goetz grapefruit face Cleanser *Bonus packet of M+G face moisturizer -Acure Organics facial cleansing gel (Seriously? Two f-ing face cleanser gels? Wtf.) -100% Pure coffee bean eye cream - Davines Love shampoo *Bonus conditioner -Japonesque eyeshadow duo shade 09 (Great size, gorgeous packaging, terrible colors for me. Sigh)

    Birchbox August 2015 (Spoilers)

    I just had a very odd experience re: my box and customer service. My box page shows a box with the Laqa tint, r+co dry shampoo, air repair moisturizer, ikpn primer, and balance me Serum. The box I received has the Laqa tint, r+co dry shampoo, and air repair moisturizer, as well as the beauty protector leave-in and coola after sun lotion, both of which are samples I've received in past boxes. There's no product card, either. So I emailed CS, got a very nice response saying they're out of my samples so she comped my September box AND gave me 100 points, which I actually thought was overly generous considering it's only 2 samples, but whatever, problem solved. Then today I get an email with a tracking link saying my replacement had shipped! I'm not complaining by any means, it's awesome for me, but stuff like this has to cost them a ton of money.

  8. I got both of these campaigns as well, plus a third for International Delights Iced Coffee/Chai Tea Latte. This is the first time I've had more than one campaign at a time, and all three are things I'm really happy to try and will definitely use.

    Birchbox Points: What did or will you buy?

    I have 900 points and a 50 gift card and would like to do a major order, but the 2 shades I can wear of the cc cream I use are OOS and CS can't tell me when they'll be back. But she did say they will come back. So I guess I'll just keep waiting and accumulating points, but I'm sure by the time I order the other stuff I want will be OOS. Sigh. I'd just do a few separate orders but I have a 25% off I'd like to use. BTW, did anyone else notice the stopped selling the cheaper beautyblender double in favor of the pricier b.b.f. set? Annoying.

    What do you think is the best BB or CC cream?

    Wei To Go Ideal Skin Perfect Finish (CC cream.) Great coverage ( I switched from Revlon Colorstay, if that gives you can idea of the amount of coverage I was used to) and just a beautiful finish. I get complements on my skin all the time now and told my skin looks airbrushed.

    Birchbox Promo Codes

    Anyone else get their box they signed up for using BLEND? Were the beautyblender/cleanser supposed to come with the box? I signed up at 5 pm on May 11, so I'm pretty sure the code was still working, and it showed as applied, but I got my box and there was nothing else with it. Edit: Looked on MSA and several girls there got their boxes with no beautyblender. I really hope Birchbox honors this promo for those of us who used this choose while it was still working and showing up as applied in our carts.

    Birchbox May 2015 (spoilers)

    Here's my box - sorry for the terrible lighting. I don't love it but I don't hate it. I'll use the Marcelle; it feels very similar to the gel moisturizer I use. The lipstick is hot pink in the tube, but it's supposed to be sheer, so it might be really pretty on. I just don't know if I should swap it or try it on and risk being stuck with it if I hate it.
