I ordered two BA boxes this month, and received the first one a few days ago.  It's white.  :)

Pink, black, and white. It seems to just be an assortment with no real pattern, kind of like a bag of Skittles.

So far, I have 2 pink ones, 2 white ones and only 1 black one! It's so sad cuz I got like eyeliner or something on the white one and it's just stained for life now :(....Black is always better ofc, cuz it doesn't get dirty that easily and if it does, it doesn't show that much :S

My selection window opens on the 25th too!  Is there anything in particular you are planning to pick?

Me too!  Who knows, maybe they will even add a new product towards the end of the month for us to choose.  Here's hoping! :)

Yay! i got my box today! I've never been able to pull of red pigments EVER, and this is the first time in my life i've liked a red lip color. and i usually can't wear lipsticks because my lips are so sensitive to drying products, so this gloss is perfect!!

I don't think that is the instagram picture product, they said its 'hair shadow' which I assume would be hair chalk.

I have a question, if my window starts on the 27th but I choose to wait till March 1st will my selection for the next month change to April 1st or will it still be March 27th?

Your window opens on the same day regardless of when you pick. It doesn't shift. I've picked on the first, middle, and last days of my window, and it opened on the 6th (my first day) of the following month every time.

I am thinking of skipping this month. I have until the 24th to decide. I really like the idea of the soap, but wow, is that iddy bitty! Seems like it would turn into a soap scrap within one shower.

 

I keep getting the Medal of Honor eye shadow popping up, which I got last month and I don't want any more of it. But the things I would love to get more of (like Ineke perfume sample or mark lip gloss) are not popping up as options/repeats. Bummer.

 

The Skinn Eye, Cheek, Lip thing looks nice, but not sure how that pink would look on me. Would love the soap but after seeing how small it is, it certainly won't be a reason to get this month just for that. The face towelette sounds nice. But I just don't seem to get six things to come up all at once that seem worth the cost. I was really hoping for some perfume samples. And if only that soap was just a wee bit bigger.

 

So, are they not suppose to ever offer you samples that you have already tried? I seem to get some repeats, and I don't mind. But I never get repeats of the things I actually WANT, lol! Doesn't that just figure.

The soap is for your face according to them.

okay, thanks for the clarification! are new releases the best during the first week of the month? or are they equally spread out?

There really isn't a best time, they are spread all over. I had two boxes for a while, and would see new items during both of them.

I thought I would skip this month, but my selection turned up pretty decent! It's the first time I choose my samples immediately without changing my profile not even once (and I totally forgot it was my selection day today)!!

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
