Birchbox February 2013

Recommended Posts

I second the Serge Normant Dry Shampoo is crap. (not that i'm a dry shampoo expert- i've never tried one before, but this left my husbands hair feel terrible and look dull and greyish) that's right- i wouldn't even use it on my hair, lol.

I'm really really hoping they'll sample the Clark's Marine Cream again this month for all of us who didn't get to try it in January.  This is one time I'd actually like for them to repeat a product!

I had to contact the seller to do buy it now. lol Not bad though. less than 14 for the whole thing. and it had joy lipsurgence and a pretty silver essie. Ahh. I can never save money lol. Hoping we will get more tarte this year! it would be festive if we got some pink and red lipsurgences or glamazon lippies

I love your taste in makeup. :) You got me wanting to try more Tarte. I hope to get it in GB!

I truly hope those are Zoya for Feb!! BB introduced me to Zoya in my first box (best box ever) I must say it is my HG of all nail polishes. Another Zoya would only be right! :D

I *believe* they mentioned the Rodarte box being the February box. Also that there would be some kind of foundation/face makeup product in Feb as well :D

where did you hear this???

I tried searching for any information about it and couldn't find anything. And usually when they partner with people for boxes they promote them a few weeks before the beginning of the month to generate buzz/get people to sign up...

Feb is the last month on my gift sub. I seriously hope it is better than my last two boxes! I love BB for the points, so it would be really hard not to continue, but I do wish that the samples were less disappointing!

 

Maybe some good changes will come from all that hate on their FB. Come on Birchbox! Make all those meanies regret unsubbing!!

Either way I'm excited! I guess Birchbox gets my money for a few more months.

I would love to see a collaboration/curated box, because I've only had BB since Dec and I want to see what all the hype's about!  I would also love a nail polish.  And a foundation/face makeup item.  I WANT IT ALL, BIRCHBOX!!!

Blargh, I got Rodarte and Ruffian mixed up.  As far as I can find, no date is known yet aside from the fact that it's this year.

Judging from their spring collection it's all about pastels, perfect skin, sculpted cheeks, either nude or red lips, brows and big hair :)

Sounds perfect to me! I opted out of the Goop box (thank goodness) and have never gotten a collab box, so I'm pretty excited.

I might sub soon, like tomorrow or today :D I so hope they improve their boxes cuz I'll drop SS and pick up BB, cuz their point system is awesome. And with SS you get NOTHING for being a sub, but the box.

You may want to put yourself on the waitlist now, it's averaging about a month for the wait.  Then when you get your invite, you can either accept it and drop SS, or ignore the invite if SS sends you a spectacular box.   Or, you know, have both wink.gif

Don't you get $15 a month off full size products with Sample Society? I was thinking about doing both for a couple months to compare.

I told the bf I might drop SS key word here...MIGHT, but actually I wouldn't be on the list for THAT long, cuz I've already been on it for like  3 months XD

I've tried the Fresh sugar lip scrub and it is OK, I would never buy it again.  I think a lip scrub I make with a little argan oil and a little regular sugar from the sugar bowl is better.  The scrub does the job on my lips and tastes better than the Fresh brand.  And it is also cheaper!

It looks like this answer is to a different question than was actually asked:  Yes, you get a $15 credit to use towards full-sized products, but they have to be the brands (not necessarily the specific products) being sampled that month.  So if they're sampling, say, By Terry moisturizer, Oscar de la Renta fragrance, philosophy cleanser, Deborah Lippmann nail polish, and Vincent Longo lip liner, you could use your $15 towards anything you received in your Sample Society box -- or you could get By Terry lip gloss, philosophy 3-in-1 shower gel, Oscar de la Renta powder, Deborah Lippmann nail tools, or Vincent Longo eye shadow.  And the credits don't roll over month to month, so it's a use-it-or-lose-it deal.

You are right, I didn't read, I'm watching tv at the same time lol. Even if I do get a $15 off...I would have to actually buy an item, whereas with birchbox you can collect points and end up getting it for free.

Is there a minimum purchase to use the 15 dollars off, or could you get something that qualifies brand-wise, but retails for 12 dollars, for free?

And the $15 off is for a minimum $50 purchase... so it's not such a great deal unless you were planning to splurge in the first place.

I just use my (clean) toothbrush on my lips every few days and then apply a natural lip balm.  That's the cheapest way I've found! wink.gif

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
