Birchbox November 2014

Recommended Posts

It's Birchbox Day today!

I didn't pick (everything was sold out). I had received an Everygirl box earlier, and DID receive the body wash in my box, so curated boxes must not count towards your "things already received'"

My box is https://www.birchbox.com/shop/birchbox-1/november-2015/november-2014-bb21

Chuao Chocolatier Assorted ChocoPod in Firecracker flavor (aka spicy, Pop Rocks-infused dark chocolate, or as my bf said, "I like my chocolate with spice and loud!")

MAKE Silk Cream Lipstick: This is a card sample, to which I say boooooooooo why even bother?!

RUFFIAN Nail Lacquer - RUFFIAN Naked: I <3 nude polishes, and this looks like a dupe of one of my favorite discontinued Juleps. Much smaller than I expected though.

dr. brandt® pores no more® vacuum cleaner™: I'll use it. I hear a lot of people like it.

amika Nourishing Mask: I have two giant tubs of this from the Beauty Brands liter sale. Love it, either I'll use this for traveling or I'll gift it.

Not Soap, Radio Body Wash: Already have it, like it but don't love it.

Since its your first one you can technically get any box. You haven't yet received any samples to rule out, just yet. Check out the MUT Birchbox FAQ if you haven't already.

Thanks for answering! I'm just going BB crazy waiting on my box! I have read the faq section; it was actually more helpful than the BB site. Lol. I am so excited to get my box!!!! I've been stalking MUT for weeks to decide which boxes to use my budget on and now I can't wait to get them!!!! I chose BB and Ipsy plus I think I will order an additional BB for my Mom. Thank you to all the MUT Ladies for taking the time to post real opinions to this site!

My box shipped despite the "late" payment! It says it should be here on the 19th. I really hope it has the mask.

That's one reason I didn't pick it.  Sounds like something that I would love, but I have thick, waist-length hair.  BB hair samples are usually not enough for even one use for me.  I should get a couple of uses out of the Juice Beauty peel, though.

For some reason I was thinking the Amika Hair Mask would be as big at the body wash I got in my box. We'll see how long it will last.  :unsure: 

 

I never paid attention before but does anyone know if the items they photograph for the Pick Your Sample are the actual sample size versions or are they the full size versions in the pictures?

It depends.  The ModelCo lipstick from last month was definitely full sized.  But the Juice Beauty peel container looks nothing like the picture in the PYS e-mail (shows a small jar, but I actually got a small tube instead).

After a six month hiatus, I decided to resubscribe since all of the boxes look pretty good! I'm really hoping for the box with the Eyeko and Tocca perfume.

Yes, box pages should load tomorrow.  So excited to see what I'm getting.

 

I received the ModelCo lipstick in Kitty last month (I think it was the Pick your Choice & that was my pick.)  I have been loving that lipstick and wearing it every day.

 

Edit:  spelling (OR lack of correct spelling)

Still in Indiana. 

Apparently my Birchbox really was drunk and needed to rest, before continuing travels, lol.

I got my box yesterday:

 

Rusk texture finishing spray

Eyeko Fat eye stick in satin taupe

Camille Beckman Imperial Repair hand therapy in lemongrass & grapefruit

Not Soap, Radio Joy Inducing body wash (my pick)

MAKE lipstick & primer (a card)

 

Except for the MAKE card sample (I hate these more than foils), I'm pretty happy with my box!

For anyone who received a Laura Mercier eye pencil, was your pencil really dried out.  Mine was dried up a lot and definitely didn't fit the hole by a lot.

I cannot believe they are sending out cards for the MAKE lipstick and primer! I despise them. I got a MAKE lipstick about a year ago in my BB and it was actually a mini little lipstick. I'd peeved if it was a card. Really BIrchbox??

I finally gave in and signed up for a second sub. HA. I keep trying other subs to replace Ipsy (and crawling back to Ipsy) and they just don't measure up. I'll be true to you now, BB

How many of you out there still only have a non-clicky truck here on the 9th of the month? This seems really odd to me. It is my main account and I picked the cuppa cuppa. I cannot wait to see my boxes this month.

I signed up for a second one yesterday, too.  Referred myself and got 50 points on my main account, plus used BBRED100 on the new account for 100 extra points there.  The plan is to keep one account full of points in reserve in case a cool limited edition set comes out.

That's what I intend to do, too, I think! I used my points today combined with a code and got the Homespun box and a pick 2 for $2! Or I might save up points on my main box for Limited Edition boxes and special things for me, and points on the 2nd sub for next year's Secret Santa. :)

My account is still showing October. I am thinking my box will not update in the morning. This happened last month too.

SO I have an annual account. Can I add a monthly to it? Or do I need to use a diff email address?

Each account has to have a different e-mail address.

I picked the cuppa on my main account and I still don't have tracking info either. My second box is in New Jersey.

 

I can't wait for boxes to load! The last two months they've updated on the night of the 9th, so I hope they upload tonight!!

    • I'm changing the way I keep track of the time on my No Buy in order to motivate myself more. I didn't realize until today that I'm in month 8 of my second year! Four and a half months until completion of Year 2! I want to finish my mini sample products by June 12, 2020. Here is a partial inventory: Shampoo minis - all used up! Face cream, and face cleanser minis - all used up after a great deal of work and patience!  Mini body scrubs - 1  Mini shower gels - 7 Mini face primers - 8 Mini toners - 9 Mini face masques - 12 I still have to add up mini body creams, hair conditioners, and perfumes. I should reorganize them all to get a new perspective.   
    • Today is the test - will I pass or fail?  Two years ago at this time (end of January 2018, on a Sunday), I discovered Hannah Louise Poston videos for the first time. She had just begun her channel. I recalled cleaning my room while watching the videos and feeling very inspired about my No Buy. I was inspired for an entire year, until ... One year ago at this time (end of January 2019, on a Sunday), I was feeling down. The weather was very bad. There was no good food in the house. I started watching haul type videos. I decided to buy something I didn't need. I felt HORRIBLE and just went on a binge. I tried to hard to get back on the path, but couldn't. I didn't get back on the path until June, when I came back with renewed vigor and had huge success for the rest of the year.  I have been thinking, why don't I just let go again, today? After all, last year I let go and did not ruin myself that much, and then by summer, like a miracle, I was back on No Buy and finished all my goals for the year and more. So I'm using that as justification for cheating. I do have shopping cravings right now. Still, I have not used half of the nice things I got on my binge last year. What will I do? Will I relive 2018 or 2019?  ______ Several hours later. I still want to shop. I cleaned a bit while watching the very first video of Hannah Louise Poston, which was published on January 15, 2018 (Introducing My No-Buy Year!). Watching that brought back a lot of good memories. At the 10:00 mark of this video, Hannah was taking about still being in the exciting early phase of the No Buy, with packages still coming in the mail from the last fling before, and it all being new and not the long haul yet. Then I realized I'm not in the early phase, I'm in the long haul now. I looked at my diaries and realized that I am already halfway through the eighth month of my second No Buy year! It has actually been that long since I began again on June 12! I only have four and a half months to complete in my second No Buy year! I really had no idea I was so far along. So while the calendar year is young, it's August as far as my No Buy Year 2 is concerned. The second year of No Buy goes quickly! I still want to shop, but now I am looking at things differently, and may feel less tempted.   
    • Something amazing for No Buy - Project Pan - Project Use It Up followers - I was reading the comments section of a Hannah Louise Poston video (Lots of Empties, published 1/21/2020) and I heard about a beauty shop called Credo that has a special recycling bin for cosmetics. Apparently if you bring your empties in for them to recycle, they give you rewards points for new things. And you can bring in any empties, not just things from their shop, although they don't take nail polish, nail polish remover, or perfume. Wow, I love that. What an inspiration for us to stay with our projects. There is no Credo store near me though. They are only in the major US cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., but maybe they will expand. Maybe they will find a way to let us mail in our empties? Or maybe I will take a trip someday, if I am good on my No Buy for a long time ... I could get my eyebrows done at their store too. Who knows. They do have an online shop also and they give three samples with orders. They have beautiful things. I think I will sign up with their site and start saving my empties up (instead of putting them in my neighborhood recycling); this may a coming trend! It's inspiring.  I always read the comments sections of No Buy videos on YouTube. I always find great tips and inspiration.
