Beauty Army- January 2013!

Recommended Posts

Good News!  They are allowing people to pick a 7th sample for the celebration of their one year anniversary- I don't know if it is limited to choosing one of the below mascaras though.  i might skip again this month.. I am not happy about bath and body works still in my selection window.. and I had always regretted buying Avon as soon as my orders would come in..

I just received a 1-year email but it mentioned nothing of the mascara. It just said "it's our birthday and all subscribers will receive a birthday gift this month". Nothing about choosing a 7th sample either.

I'm guessing the 7th sample is one of the mark. mascaras? I would actually be happy about that, I got the Blow Kisses gloss last month, and the mascara will click right into the other end of the plastic hook-up thingy!

 

My selection window isn't til the 9th, so I'm hoping they have a new Whip Hand color by then.  Hoping for a good month w/BA!

I just received the same email. I guess we'll know when our selection window comes up.

 

On that note, I ordered my first BA box December 31st....so my window will be January 31st, right? Does that mean I just have that one day to pick out my samples or opt out of the box, otherwise they'lll pick em out for me instead?

You get a 5 day window to choose samples. The window starts on the day you sign up. If you signed up on the 31st, your window should open on 31st (or 30th?) every month. You would then have until the 4th of each month to pick. You can opt-out in that time period as well. If you don't pick before the 5th, they will pick for you.

It's possible I get way too excited about my sub boxes.  Blue Mustang, I found the best (biggest) items under the lowest age bracket... but that was last month.  Good luck!

haha that's what I did, even though I'm 27 :P and I ended up with a pretty good kit IMO. Hope I have the same luck in January!

Mine is not until the 26th, so I am pretty sure everything good will be gone AGAIN. I have skipped all but one month since July. I was a New Year's Day 2012 subscriber- like number 87 or something - and the decline saddens me.

Maybe try emailing them and asking to change your selection window?  I've seen people post on the BA FB wall asking about it, and Nancy-Lee always asks them to email her.  If it's causing you to skip boxes/not buy anything, I bet they'll change it!  Especially as you're one of their founding subscribers.  Worth a try!

I finally got the eyeshadow to show up and essentially got the same things as you did except I chose lash cards and a face mask thing. And this is kinda weird to talk about but I had an ingrown hair from shaving my underarms (armpit is so weird for me to write?? Lol) and it left a dark mark.. That cream totally lightened it almost right away! I was shocked how well it worked.

So I've had Birchbox for a few months, and I signed up for Ispy to get the December bag... and now I just HAD to sign up for Beauty Army too. I just love the idea of actually having some control over the samples I get!

 

 

MARK. <br /> Scanda-Lash Brown Mascara
MARK. 
SCANDA-LASH BROWN MASCARA

 

This is the kit I ended up choosing. I am pretty excited. I changed my profile up a few times, but ended up going back to what I originally put to get the samples I wanted. I didn't have to lie on my profile to get choices I wanted 7b.gif That is a really good sign to me. I did refresh my sample page about 100 times until I got the right combination of choices, but I really think that is part of the fun. 

 

However, I didn't realize that the samples would be changing everyday at 9 AM (11 AM here in the central time zone) so I hope I had a good selection since I picked mine about an hour before they restocked. Does anyone know if they restock on the weekends too? Also, I didn't realize that you kind of have a say in when your kit ships depending on when you sign up. I kind of wish I would have signed up so that BA wouldn't be shipping around the same time as my BB and Ipsy. On the other hand, is there any advantage in picking towards the beginning of the month?

 

I really think this is the sub I am most excited about. Can't wait to get my first kit and pick more samples in the future wub.gif

    • Why dont you try Sephora Collection 10 hrs foundation? It will be the best for you as far as your problem is concerned.
    • hey there , I have normal skin so for that i use foam based conditioner thats from LAKME  {lakme absolute facial foam}. Its really good my skin. you should definitely try it.
    • The toturial is being very nice and helpful for the girls who are like to syle thier eyebrows , the pink color always suit to ladies with smoky brown shadow really make the difference ..
    • Hey! I don't really use primers but I'm sure someone else who will come across this post might be able to answer!  For the oily skin, I would recommend putting setting powder on your face, mist it with setting spray (Lightly) THEN apply foundation.. give that a try. Also a great tip for oily skin is use waterproof mascara instead of normal... as normal mascara will transfer onto your under eye area over time and upper lid due to oils.  Also Mac foundation has great coverage for any blemish and scarring. I'm just looking on google now and it seem to highly recommend Charlotte Tilbury's airbrush foundation.. I know that brand is more on the pricy side.. but its worth checking in store and getting one of the girls there to do a test on your skin before purchasing.  Hopefully theres something useful you can take from this. let me know if you come across other tips that work!  x  Linda 
    • @Beautybyluo Yes!  I use and love ELF 16HR Camo Concealer in "fair" since my so pale.  The coverage on this concealer is great.
