Birchbox December 2014 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Maybe its because I haven't been around in a few months, but I could see that being a source of confusion for unsuspecting subscribers (especially people like me who like to play musical chairs with their carts).

I'm sure a lot of people are going to click it, not expecting it to be automatically reserved. It did say farther down the page that I'll be charged around December 1st. I hope being on a gift sub doesn't mess this up.

 

ETA: I just checked my card. The charge was not instant. I bet they are gonna get a lot of calls and e-mails from people who reserved the neckaces by accident. :(

I guess the highlighter for me but nothing really sticks out.   I wonder which ones will sell out the fastest.

I'm going to think about it, but right now, I'm leaning towards the rose gold eyeliner. I don't own any eyeliner in that shade.

Rose gold for me!

I'm down to two boxes this month, so I'll probably do the eyeliner on one, and leave the other as a surprise.  The other PYS choices aren't bad, but not exciting enough to limit myself.

I am so torn between the mascara and highlighter. I think I'm going to need to read some reviews on each before I come to a decision. I don't think rose gold would be terribly flattering for my coloring so I'm going to steer clear of that if possible.

Gah I hope they get my main account straightened out so I can get the eyeliner and lippie!  If I have to resort to opening a third account I will get a welcome box and not a PYS.

I caved & ordered the longer necklace Rachel has on in the video. So cute! :) 

This will be my first ever Birchbox Plus so hopefully it all goes well...

I just sent out an email to Birchbox. I am not a happy camper. Underneath the video on their website, now it says that those of us in Alaska and Hawaii are no longer able to pick a sample choice or do the add on. I was going to choose the rose gold eyeliner on my Aces account. This is complete B.S. I can only wonder what their response will be. I just signed up for a year's sub and have spent plenty of money with this company.

I think I'm going to go with the lip gloss, at first I was tempted by the eyeliner, since I don't have a color like that, but I think I'd use the lip gloss a lot more.  And I love the little diamond on it!

If I keep both subs for the month, I will probably do the highlighter and the liner. The highlighter mainly because I've just wondered about that brand and almost bought one of their products on a whim many times. If I only keep one sub not sure when I will choose.

 

I think I will add the moonstone necklace. Never did birchbox plus but I like the necklace. :-)

It's so pretty, but looking at the 3 liners I have right now in varying shades of gold tells me I should not pick it... :(

I do love the blue one I got from the Mermaid box, though, and I'm tempted to have it in another shade.

OMG I missed that it was that brand. For some reason I was thinking of the Sumita liners. I love that pencil. I was leaning towards the eyeliner anyway since I have nothing anywhere near that color but now? Sign me up!

This will be tough.  I'll wait to see what the curated box is, but I'm leaning towards the eyeliner since I dont have anything like it.

The mascara is the only PYS thing that appeals to me, so I'll go with that or the curated box(depending on what's in it).

It's a toss up for me between the liner and the lippie. I honestly don't think I'd wear the liner, but I can imagine that it's SO pretty, so I feel like I need to get it and force myself out of my eyeliner comfort zone LOL

I'd like the eyeliner, the highlighter or the lip stain. I don't like Mirenesse mascaras. I don't think I will pick though- just leave it up to the BB gods. It seems like my boxes are much better when I don't pick.

Ever since I got the silver CR liner I've been digging metallic liners! I bought a gold liquid eyeliner liner that I love, but they don't sell them anymore and I never got the chance to buy the rose gold....

 

BUT they always seem to have issues with the option that is the most popular, and this liner seems to be the most popular so far (at least here in MUT).

I wonder what lorelei's polish is! I bet it's a Jinsoon color, but I wish they mentioned it because I've been wanting a cobalt blue polish.

 

 

 

Essie's Butler Please is a nice cobalt polish...my sister turned me on to that color.

Also, I am all about that rose gold eyeliner! The W3LL highlighter stick is tempting but I NEED that eyeliner!

    • 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!
