(SPOILERS) July Birchbox partners with Glamour Magazine

Recommended Posts

I'm not bothered by the shadow card, personally...that brand is sending out serious products to BB for probably next to nothing, and if there's a card here and there, as long as the other products in the box are deluxe, I'm fine with it. I like the cards bc I can take them on a trip and just toss them. No need to worry about pans breaking in my carry on bag, which has happened to me with a blush or two.

I'm saying no to the Stila palette. I wish it was the Stila palette though! I am only saying I am pretty sure it is a shadow card just because in one of the boxes I see that it looks like the Ada cosmetics bronzer is in one of the boxes with the Stila card, and I'm pretty sure that the bronzer was a full size product in last months box. So if a few people got 2 full sized products it would probably create a lot of unhappy customers for BB to deal with at the end of July.

my aunt got the bronzer last month and i'm pretty sure it wasn't a full size just because the container was kind of small (i don't have a full size one to compare to it, though). but it seems like it's a sample that would last a while though.

EEEEEEEE I REALLY want a Black Eyeko Liner, Boscia BB cream, Boscia blotting papers, Akima Hair products, and the Laura Gellar Lipstick. Also interested in a peach Ada bronzer/blush. If i receive the Stila lip gloss (i hate lip gloss) or the Blinc mascara (already have full size) i will HAPPILY trade for one of my aforementioned lusts. Really hoping one of my 2 subs is box 5.

 

i really thought this month was going to be a dud, but after seeing the pictures, i am SO excited.

 

I received my first shipping email on my second account today. Every time my phone lit up after that i was terrified that it was my other sub's email telling me my other box shipped AKA same box. SOME HOW i have been graced with different boxes for both subs for the last two months, which appears to now be three. it's funny, i'm pretty sure i made my profile's identical aside my new one claiming i'm rich bahaha. i will have to compare that because i'm lucky to get different boxes!

 

so excited!

you know what is frustrating about this? i'm sure many girls signed up, not through Glamour, but after hearing about it thinking they will get a Glamour box. Now they will get that garbage (sorry, one or two items are ok, but a cheap hair tie and a ziploc?) and think Birch Box is a joke. There WILL be a huge backlash of emails and calls "i thought i was getting a Glamour Box!) this is Teen Vogue all over again. If i can foresee this, why can't BB? I DO NOT see why Birch Box offers such awful Welcome Boxes... i was lucky and got a FUll Size Stila Liner in january in my welcome box, but my sister got a magnet and a SPICY chocolate bar... she was like "thanks for the gift sub, sis" NOTTTTTT. cruel cruel BB, welcome boxes should be welcoming, not "turn back!!!!" notices.

 

endrant.

Still no shipping notice for me but I'm loving seeing pics/reading about the boxes that have arrived so far. I really like July's products all-around!

Hi ladies,

 

I tried asking this on the Birchbox facebook page to no avail, but maybe one of you have an answer. I'm been falling behind in submitting reviews (I know!), and I was just wondering if it's not too late to submit the ones from either May or June (those are the other boxes I received). Thanks, y'all!

i joined in jan 2012 myself and my welcome box was some old lady smelling juicy perfume, eye serum (i really needed it), the mini jouer lipgloss, the bb magnet, zoya polish and the nasty ass larabar. it was good overall minus the perfume and larabar

 It's too late for May but go submit your June feedback now! I'm pretty sure you have from the 10th to the 10th of the next month to submit. (So for June box you'd have from June 10th to July 10th)

I think the feedback link is only active for 30 days after the current box ships. I screwed up and didn't get points for my first two or three boxes back in jan-march, but I couldn't go back and get points because the time period expired. I was a dummy to the points program back then :/ Sucks! 

 

Now I do the reviews shortly after receiving the box.

Thank you for responding! Maybe I didn't read hard enough, or does Birchbox state this somewhere?

 

In any case, I'll get on it since the June set will be lost otherwise. That's kinda disappointing as they are still selling of the products in their store :(

i've been wondering why they do that. they put leftovers and junk they know previous recipients had issues with into the welcome boxes. i remember my first box had that damned eyerock eyeliner in it (and that was the month everyone else seemed to be getting teen vogue boxes). i was really bummed out and was considering canceling it but didn't get around to it in time. luckily my boxes since then have been pretty nice.

 

but yeah, why would they want first-timers to be disappointed like that?

I'm so glad I found out about the Birchbox point system before I joined.  It's actually one of the reasons I signed up.  I just finished giving feedback on the Stila one-step bronzer and the Wonderstruck perfume about 5 minutes ago for my June Birchbox.  I would have been so ticked off at myself if I realized 5 months down the road I should have been doing feedback for every box.  But I guess I asked the right people and they explained what Birchbox was about and said they loved the feedback system and to make sure I always did the feedback if I signed up.

I liked my welcome box, but that was in January so maybe that's why? But still, I loved the Zoya polish in it, as well as the lotion and lip gloss! XD

 

I REALLY hope I don't get the eyeko liner, but knowing my luck, one of my boxes will have it. If anyone wants to trade, I'd so be down. Especially for a stila gloss!

My box arrived today (predicted date was tomorrow). I totally forgot to keep the message w/ the shipping date and weight. Anyhow...

 

1. Alterna Bamboo UV color protector - decent enough size, though small.

2. Eyeko eyeliner - full size. I had to try it immediately. I've never used anything but a pencil or a brush. This was the product I most wanted, so I was very happy to get a box w/ it in it.

3. Harvey Prince Hello purfume. Smells good. Larger than the usual tiny glass vial.

4. Supergoop - two tiny envelopes like the sort you'd get stuck on a magazine page for a free sample. Disappointing size.

 

5. Tea Forte minitea - some sort of lemongrass flavor. It started out good and ended up ack-patuie. I'll give them to someone at work. Someone will like them. Full size and a nice sample, just not my taste.

6.  Earbuds - happy to have them. I can always use a spare pair as I seem to lose them or break them regularly.

 

Overall I am happy w/ the box. Most disappointed w/ the supergoop and delighted w/ the eyeliner.

My eyes look bigger & brighter w no makeup even & it helps me not feel like i HAVE to do my makeup before going out. When i do wear makeup (most of time) i don’t have to apply falsies so it saves time. Overall I just love how it looks!   2. Pretty much answered above. 3. I had a groupon for the place i go to & just loved them so I decided to continue going there + theyre not far & really nice! They do my lashes exactly how i like! Ive been to other places & they were good except never did what i wanted.
    • Personally i do acrylics w gel polish. Wbu?
    • Ive wanted to add vitamin c serum to my skin care routine so I bought one & it was too harsh & i broke out. Any suggestions for sensitive skin vitamin c serum? Links are best! + any experience & it being on amazon would be ideal but please suggest any!!
