After 3 or 4 months of using eye liner, I can finally do it! It seriously took me that long before I could do it without messing it up

I love the thick shadow pencils to use on my eyes because they are so forgiving and you don't have to draw a straight line.  I've been lazy like that for years and I've never bothered to try anything else.  I love the Stila, but it looks like it was drawn on by my 2 year old, lol. I'll keep practicing.

I am terrible at eyeliner all around. I absolutely hate sticking things in my eye so the bottom never works for me and I have problems with the top. Haven't gotten brave enough yet to try the liquid from Stila, in fact I bought a cheapy liquid from Dollar General last night to practice with.

That is a good tip! I bet it looked really pretty

My trick to perfect liquid liner is I hold it with my pinky sticking out, which I use to anchor my hand by pressing it firmly into my cheek, if that makes sense.  It steadies my hand, I'm a nonstop coffee drinker so my hands get the jitters.

I find it a little irritating, especially as the day goes on. I think it's the glitter flecks causing it, so I probably won't buy this liner. Plus I think the pen is a little too soft and long which doesn't make for the best application in my opinion.

BirchBox continues to disappoint - I still have not received my replacement Dr. Jart BB Cream. I emailed them again. Anyone else still waiting on theirs or am I just BirchBox Cursed?

I emailed them about my empty tube and five days later they wrote back saying they would send another along with shipping confirmation. 10 days later I emailed them back about not getting the item OR shipping confirmation and two days later (their normal) they wrote back saying I won't get a shipping notice and she could confirm my BB was on its way. It's been a few days and I still don't have it. I like birchbox but this has been disappointing. At this point I would rather just have bonus points or something.

What? Are you serious, I'm not the only one that got an empty tube? Unbelievable. Apparently a lot of people had empty bottles! It took me a long time to get my replacement bottles. I had given up on them!

Regarding the Dr. Jart BB sample, I contacted BirchBox Ops through twitter, and they emailed immediately saying they will send a replacement along with the shipping confirmation. A week went by so I emailed them to follow up. Again, I got an immediate response that they will check with shipping. That was a week ago. I'm tempted to email them again and just tell them I don't want the damn thing.

For some reason I bought a year subscription. Really the savings isn't much, but offer a "discount" and I'm a sucker for it. Now I wonder whether I'll be happy with it. I probably should just enjoy what they send, of course I knew some products I wouldn't like or want, that's just normal, not everyone will like/want everything..anyhow is there any way for me to terminate a year subscription and get a refund for the unused months, or am I stuck with it now..

 

Has anyone gotten a year subscription and thought it wasn't worth it? or thought it was?

 

I think I'm going to put this post on a new thread, as its not really related to May's box..

Its always worth it to ask. My friend got a refund on a 3 month subscription because her mom HATED it. Just ask them.

Techinically no, according to their terms, you cannot get a refund on a yearly sub, but yeah...can't hurt to ask.

I totally agree! The same thing happened to me for my FIRST BB. I emailed them and they got back to me a week later basically stating they'll send me another one but no further info.  I'd much MUCH rather have points. Boo birchbox! I feel this is gonna be a very short, mediocre relationship.

I thought I read that you can cancel a year subscription as long as it's within the first month.

Hey guys! I have a question! Has anyone actually gotten their 3-month discount coupon? This will be my 4th box and I am yet to receive any type of coupon or discount code... Should I call?

 

By the way I have had better luck with leaving a voicemail than I have with e-mailing.  Ive only had to do each one time but I got a response much faster with voicemail than with e-mail!

Funny, isn't it, how the products we thought we'd like we tend to hate and vice-versa?   I wasn't a fan of the Stila eyeliner I recieved, but loved the Ojon Shampoo and the Miracle Skin transformer!

I got a 3 month discount code, maybe it went to your spam folder? I would contact them about it no matter what because the codes only work for a few days.

    • I'm stressed out now because of the Experiences that have replaced my compulsive shopping. Last year at this time my big problem was cancelling beauty sub boxes. I've gotten myself into things that are a lot harder to cancel than Birchbox.  Last July I started to pursue some of my religious interests. It's a lot easier to worry about what to buy than what religion to belong to. You find yourself drawn to different denominations, and you don't know which is the right one. You start to get more involved in tithing but feel conflicted about it. Why are you giving up shopping to pay off debt, then giving large sums away? You become drawn to a faith that your family and friends are against, and you are not allowed to pursue your interest in that faith. Family members become angry with you. You are called to kitchen duty in your church and are so stressed because you can't cook, but part of you wants to do it. I have many conflicts.  Were you not better off shopping? I don't like Experiences.  I've been depressed for one week about these things. Last night I finally managed to clean the depression mess in my room. I had comforting dreams about shopping and I felt better when I woke up. It's interesting how my brain wants to go back to that comforting path. 
    • Moisturiser is one skincare staple that people with dry skin absolutely can’t do without. Dry patches, flakiness, peeling skin, are just some of the many issues that dry skin beauties have to deal with. And if that isn’t enough, finding the best moisturizer for dry skin that leaves your skin happy and hydrated is a task in itself.    Picking the right skincare products for your skin type is not an easy task - there is a lot of research involved in finding a product that would suit you the best. And that’s probably what brought you here, right?
    • Other than making you feel weirdly satisfied while peeling off the mask properly, charcoal peel off masks offers a wide range of skin benefits. Especially black peel off masks, which are all the rage right now among teenagers and adults.  
    • Hi guys. Well I am a 37 year old woman and I looked into a Makeup Academy when I was in my early 20s but it was too expensive for me to afford at the time. A little background on me. I never had anyone to teach me how to do makeup. My mom was NOT a girly girl so I had no real feminine influence lol. I have never tried to do anyone's makeup because I lack the confidence. But I would really like to learn. My question is, has anyone here started Makeup school at a later age? Were you in school with mostly younger folks and how did it work out for you? I guess my question is, is Age a disadvantage in this industry? Thanks!
    • I think it's totally depned uopn your desire and passion that what kinds of hair style you are going to have hair styling is little bit hard for culry hair as compared to straight hair..
