Birchbox just posted two new LE boxes Vanity Affair and Home Sweet Homespun. I entered the contest hoping to win the Vanity Affair box. Both boxes are appealing to me,I don't know if I want to wait for the others to be revealed before placing any orders. I currently have 700 points to spend.

I really want the vanity affair, I have 700 points as well but hoping for a good code.

Are they releasing new LE boxes every week?  I kinda really want the Vanity Affair one but I'm also afraid that a better box will come later and then I'll wish I saved my points for that BUT BUT what if I wait and nothing that I like better comes out and the Vanity Affair one gets sold out.  Oi, decisions decisions....

So, I did the maker's kit photo hanging kit from the box...while wearing the new socks and burning the strange smelling candle tonight, lol. I found that my kit came with 10 mini clothes pins, so instead of cutting the cardboard pieces into thirds twice like the tutorial video suggests, I cut mine in half twice at the 1.5" mark on my rotary cutter. It made for bigger pieces of paper and you have just 2 left over. She also mentions being careful with the super glue and boy is she right, mine burst all over the place, so make sure you put down some newspaper if you care about your work surface getting ruined. I wanted to try the sipping chocolate, but my husband drank all the milk and I didn't feel like going to get more.

I found a 20% off code on Retailmenot: TAKEOFF20 .  I placed my order tonight and used $20 in points, bringing it down to $58 for the Vanity Affair box and a Mystery Sample pack.  I'm really excited about this box, beautiful products and I'll use every one.  :)   

 

For those talking about the Swell water bottle  . . I found one on clearance at Nordstrom Rack a few months ago and I've been using the heck out of it ever since.  It is amazing!! It's lightweight and keeps my water cold, plus I found a knit Sasquatch bottle cover for it at REI.  Oh, and the cap seals so tight that I have no problem throwing it in my work bag or purse. . it's not even leaked one drop of water and is perfect for any kind of travel.

I would loooooove to know how many LE they are going to be released. I really like that I can see what's in the box, and decide if that's what I want to spend my money on. So, the big debate in my head is do I keep putting the cash out for "surprise" boxes (ie quarterly, PS, etc), or spend it on the things that are a treat, but I can make a decision if I want it or not. That's why I want to know how many boxes they have coming. Decisions, Decisions,

Wow, that does look gorgeous!  I may end up getting one if they stay is stock a little bit longer.

I ordered the Vanity Affair box today!  I was planning on waiting a little longer to order but I didn't want to risk it selling out so I went ahead and bought it today.  For the box and a pick two my total came to $38.40 thanks to 400 points and 20% off.  I'm so excited for the box!  I'm going to save it as a Christmas gift for myself and not open it until Christmas day.  I'm going to have to check out the pick two right away though, of course  ^_^ .

It looks like the boxes will be for sale tomorrow/tonight, the women's box is priced a bit high for what it is, maybe  I am missing the value, but they just aren't speaking to me.

I went for the Vanity Affair one today.  $18.40 with points and TAKEOFF20.  Plus a potentially dubious mystery sample pack.  Was going to wait to try to get more points but if I get a 5-item box, I would've been at 694 which wouldn't have been enough for an extra $10 in points.  And while I can see it not selling out in a week, if I had to wait another month, it might've been a different story.

 

I need to hide my credit cards now.  That's Birchbox, three Ulta orders (they kept tempting me with coupons and GWPs), one Sephora order, and one order from Tatcha in the last two weeks.  And a couple of other under $20 things.  My bonus from work last month is GONE and then some.

Yay.  Somehow ended up with an "extra" Terry Baume de Rose :)  Guess it's so tiny they didnt see the other one in there when packing.

I predict 2 more boxes at least. When you see the list of items in the bb shop, it says there are 12 items, but there are only 10 boxes showing!

Got my box in the mail last night!  No buyer's remorse here!  

 

First of all, the packaging was gorgeous!!! 

 

I absolutely love the Rosanna Alhambra Medium vessel - I've had my eye on these for a while, so it definitely helped with my purchase decision :).

 

I also love the Stephanie Johnson travel jewelry tray even more than I realized!  It will be useful at home AND on the go.  I always find myself throwing my jewelry on the table or nightstand when I travel and I inevitably end up searching on the floor for fallen earrings, so this will help me stay organized!

 

The Tocca perfume in Margeaux smells heavenly - it is the perfect fall scent!  At first I wasn't too sure, but I keep sniffing my wrists end enjoying the scent more and more each time.

 

I am also wearing the Terry Baume de Rose and it feels wonderful on my lips!  A little seems to go a long way and it is very, very moisturizing, plus the scent is really nice.

 

I immediately polished my toenails with the Jin Soon polish in Coquette and the color is gorgeous, but the formula seems a little watery.  I had to use 2 coats.

 

I haven't yet tried anything else from the box, but can't wait to do so!  There was a whole lot of luxury packed into the Vanity Affair box!  :)

 

I also received some cool hair products in my mystery sample pack:  Neil George conditioner and Hairkop Essence Obliphica Moisturizing Treatment Cream.  I've never heard of either of these brands, but I'm always looking for new hair products, so I can't wait to try them!

I don't know if this is a typo or what but I just got my bb sub and there was a gift guide pamplet inside that 5 LE boxes (all are on the site already) but the Homespun and Vanity Affair boxes are a lot more in there.  They're listed for $49 for the homespun ($40 online) and $110 for the VA box ($98 online).  Either way, I'm just happy they went with the lower price XD

I noticed that, too.  I wonder if they printed the guide long before the sets went up for sale?  Maybe they decided on the price later?  $98 is kind of an odd price, but there are some people who would probably balk at shelling out over $100 (like me, though I used points) and who might go for it at a slightly lower price.

I have to say that I'm loving the curation of these boxes!  I left Birchbox last year because I was really upset with all the tiny sample foils and low value boxes.  That was back in the day when they had "punishment" boxes, which I always seemed to get.  Now, the monthly boxes are so much better and their LE boxes have been fantastic!  I've wanted them all. . . 

 

I ordered the Vanity Affair with the 20% off code and mystery sample pack. I had enough points to take off $20, so it came to $58.  I just checked, and I already have another $10 in credit and am thinking about ordering the women's Conscience Commerce box plus one other thing so I can get the Kate Spade necklace.  Birchbox is going to put a serious dent in my wallet this month!   

 

On another note, I went to the VIB Rouge special event last week and blehhhh.  Sephora had better watch out, because Birchbox is getting so many great cosmetics in their shop and their discounts + rewards are outstanding.  Spending $100 to get a tiny sample when I get so many extras with BB.

My VA box was missing the By Terry balm. I emailed bb and they are sending me a replacement. I was pleasantly surprised by the make palette, the colores are pigmented and smooth. I was impressed with the rest of the items as well! Very well curated in my opinion as the products feel Very Luxe, but are very useable.

    • Wow, so much I missed during my No Buy Year! I see Sephora has a new bag called Play! Smarts. Instead of a random set of samples, customers are given products around a particular theme. Also, an online class is provided. It just feels so organized, and maybe a way for me to actually use things from a box instead of letting them pile up. I wish I would have gotten the skin care bag for women over 50! Now on the site I see they had a complexion makeup bag, but it's out of stock. 😶 Does anyone know how often these come out? Makeup overwhelms me, so it would be good to practice on one area at a time. This speaks to me on many levels. I've actually never tried the regular Play! box. I got one of the luxe bags and really liked it. They had Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Cream in the recent Play! Smarts box. I'm going to be looking out for the next one. Update: the classes can be seen on Sephora's YouTube channel. History of boxes so far: June 2018 - Glitter Eyes for Real Life - the inaugural box.  August 2018 - Superfoods Feed Your Face  September 2018 - Skincare by Age 30s, 40s, 50s.  October 2018 - K-Beauty: Skin Innovation October 2018 - Superfoods: Inner and Outer Beauty  November 2018 - Complexion Your Way: Dewey and Matte It should be time for a new one, no? Maybe it was test marketing for last year.  I recall when looking through magazines from the 1970s there was a mail order beauty club called The Butterfly Club. They would send a shipment for eye makeup the first time, lip makeup the next time, etc., so you could make yourself over little by little. I loved the ad. I have been unable to find the ad online. Anybody remember? I believe it was like Cosmetique Club.  I liked Birchbox Beta from 2017, where they sent kits based on a specific area. I got overwhelmed with all the choices they had, though. Could never decide which one to get, or should I get the regular box, or the curated box.
