Birchbox August 2013

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

I know most people haven't even gotten their July box, but I got a little sneek peek from someone at the benefit counter today. 

 

I went in today to get re-color matched for the foundation and I ended up chatting the counter manager for a while about various things, but most importantly Birchbox and how the products have made an appearance in many of July's variations. Long story short, she asked me about the benefit Stay flawless primer and if I had sampled it this month in my box. I said no, it wasn't in any variation. (Correct me if i'm wrong) and then she caught herself and said it must be next month. So does that mean we will be sampling more from Benefit next month?  She seemed like she didn't want to say more, but It sounds like its going to be a mini of it. I wish I could have got her to spill more!

I tried to get the Stay Flawless primer sample from Ulta yesterday and she said that she was out, but she definitely had samples. She gave me 2 oxygen wow samples for my troubles :P I'm in love with the formula!

I would love to try this!  I have never been able to wear foundation and primers seem to give a light coverage that doesn't look cakey.

I'm game for the primer, honestly I don't love the benefit line but I always give their items a try. 

 

I didn't like the Stay Don't Stray primer I got in March.

Interesting! I really hope the ones coming are going to be a bit larger, but I wouldn't be surprised if its this exact size.

I really like it - i have larger pores on my cheeks and a pretty oily t-zone and while it didn't keep the oilies at bay, my pores looked decent and my makeup didn't melt off my face...so thats a win in my book!

That's usually the best you can hope for with oily skin.. I've tried so many primers and combinations, that I've decided to just stop and accept I'll need to blot throughout the day.

 I feel like there should be dramatic music with this post (in a good way) -- I love getting early hints/sneak peeks/teasers!

    • This Advent Calendar sounds amazing!! Thanks so much for sharing!!
    • I am going on a No Buy (replacements only) in January and February. My goal is to pay off a credit card of $140 (accounting for interest, I will need to pay off around $150), and to use up my deluxe sample sized beauty items. The same resolution I have every year, but this time it's different. I'll be paying off the last in a very long series of mini debts I had in my debt snowball, after two years of paying things off. After that I'll be going into a different phase, working on larger debts. Also, I am starting with far, far fewer sample beauty products than I used to, having used so many up in the last two years.  It's exciting, getting to the end of this phase. I'm going to be going through my samples in the next two weeks and getting ready! It's a good way to start the year, with smaller goals and easier wins. 
    • Do you like card games? for example poker?
    • Advent calendar: Day 8 - Bright red nail polish - Polish was so easy to apply, and lasted well. I got several compliments on it.  Day 9 - At the Heart of Pine Trees Holiday Shower Gel - a fresh orange scent with a soft wood note.  Day 10 - Apricot body scrub.  Day 11 - Hydrating micellar water.  Day 12 - Plein Soleil Perfume - I love the perfume! It is tuberose with a hint of cardamom, to evoke travels to the East.  Day 13 - At the Heart of Pine Trees matching body lotion.  Day 14 - Mango Coriander Shower Gel.  I've been feeling the pressure of the holidays this month! I've been frustrated, because I have not been able to make progress on paying my credit card off by the end of the year. It's looking like it's not going to happen. I wanted to pay it off by the end of the year just because of perfectionism. Since it was the last in the series of smaller balance debts in my debt snowball, I thought it would be nice to have it done by New Year's Eve and start January with a larger goal. After having a relaxed day (I went to the park for a walk and saw baby deer!), I finally thought of something that made it okay to defer that goal a bit. I realized I won't be finished with my mini beauty products by the New Year either. I have far fewer than in past years, but I'll still have some to get through. I always had the concept of using my mini sample products and paying my smaller debts (the easier goals) and after that was through, I would use up full sized products while paying off larger debts. After thinking of that, I felt it would be okay to make a new plan and give myself January and February to pay my last small bill ($140) while using up the mini products. Then in March I can begin work on larger debts and larger products! I did achieve all of my 2019 New Year's Resolutions, and paid off five credit cards this year, and I'm very happy with that. I'm not going to go on a shopping spree and buy myself a lot of things with credit cards, but I do need to make it through Christmas!       
    • I think Makeup brushes are a base for makeup, especially for this set of makeup brushes, highly recommended.
