Birchbox December 2014 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

This is my first month with Birchbox. When do we get to pick our sample? Toward the end of the month?

Aces members will get an email to pick their sample on the 11/25 and regular BB members will get an email on 11/26 :)

I am so glad I dropped Ipsy. This is definitely making me want a second sub for BB.  This will cut down on the fomo if I go with the curated box on my main.

I am going to select the eyeliner. I love my silver Cynthia Rowley eyeliner so much I was considering buying the CR rose gold liner but if I can get something similar in my box that would be great.

I like all four of the products this month so I may leave my boxes up to chance.  I will most likely end up with at least one of them even without picking something.  I am interested to see the curated box.

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.

That sucks.   :(

 

I wonder if they have problems with sample choices that aren't allowed to be shipped by air?

liking the lucky stain and with as many mascaras that i have, that mineresse one looks good.  have been eyeing all the w3ll products, specifically the brightener for the last 3 months, but they offer all their makeup samples in the same little jar shown in video at only $1.50 each.

Ooooh. I'm digging everything except for the mascara (simply because I have enough to last me until next December), and am leaning toward the rose gold liner. I don't own anything like it!

That wouldn't really have anything to do with Birchbox making some random, odd stipulation but I'm sure they are abiding by certain states' regulations.  It does suck but I wouldn't blame BB.

Is the add ons being cheaper than normally offered a newer thing? When they had the Jouer cream shadow as an add-on several months ago, it was at $30, which is the actual price offered on their website.

I got the Blue eyeliner in the Modern Mermaid box and I really like it.  Definitely going for the rose gold liner. I don't have anything like it!

Did anyone else get the Make Lipgloss in  Dragon Fruit as a BB Plus in November? Mine was a great color, but it was IMPOSSIBLE to put the wand back in without having the contents of the tube goushe all out of the tube due to the thickness of the gloss and pressure of putting the want back in. Am I alone in this?

Well for the past several months, they have not allowed us to pick the curated boxes, which is fine. I receive perfume samples all the time in my boxes, I cannot see why an eyeliner or any of those samples would not be able to be shipped. I was going to choose a necklace as well, they are not allowing that either.  I am still waiting to hear back from them. Hey, I might even try last month's link and see if it goes through on sample choice day.

I couldn't find this sample on the site! Do you have a link?

You just go to the particular item and you can choose either full size or sample size. I am pretty sure all the items have sample sizes available.

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.

 

 

I forgot about the curated boxes! I wonder who the partner will be.

I am all over that rose gold eyeliner for one of my boxes! I have nothing else like it in my collection and it will be perfect. I really liked the Starlooks gem eyeliner and the charcoal Pacifica eyeliner that I tried from Ipsy, so I'm sure this one is right up my alley. I'm going to keep my other box as a surprise because that profile has been consistently excellent... I don't want to mess with perfection.  ;)

I'm actually liking a few of the choices this month.  I'm going to go with the rose gold eyeliner.  I've been loving all things rose gold lately and don't have any liners in a similar color. Hopefully, the rest of the box will be good!

Here a link to a random product, just select sample size and the price is 1.50

 

 

Edit: Did I forget to attach the link? Or did I remember to attach it and accidentally commit a MUT crime. Oops if it's the latter... My sincere apologies.

 

To @@JenTX its on the w3ll people website.

I'm loving the idea of the rose gold liner, but sometimes I wish we had a chance to look at the other types of samples being sent out. Like if there are going to be other amazing makeup products I might not want to guarantee I don't get (For example).

Yes, that would be nice.  One of the reasons I'm hesitant to pick a sample sometimes is because it seems (to me at least) that one particular sample is nice but is in a lot of boxes with otherwise blah samples that I have no interest in.  In which case, I wouldn't have even picked that sample in the first place!  So yup, I completely get what your saying!

 I'm going to not do PYS this month, I want to be surprised. I do covet that mint and moonstone necklace, but it isn't in my budget. I'm only buying gifts for others.

Torn! I love the idea of the rose gold liner... but I don't like the way it looks on her at all... but her skin tone is darker than mine... to pick, or not to pick?

    • I don't think online games comes into sports activity. You need to correct your answer Mynni. However, I answer this question then for sure, I am a big fan of racket games. I was best at squash and tennis in school days. I also recently started playing squash again with my husband in doubles format after getting a good squash racket and reading the racquets reviews from here. I think females must play this kind of sports to improve their physical fitness. 
    • I just realized that it's been 5 years since I was sick. All those years I was only thinking of hospitals, doctors, pills and suffocating depression and no entertainment. Now that I am finally over it all, I am sitting at home not knowing where to push myself into. I used to love playing in Vegas casinos and actually I wouldn't mind if anybody from this forum keeps me a company once again. We could wear our best dresses, have a perfect make up (I know a cool celebrity make up artist!), book our flights and go. I tried to visit a few gambling threads here but they are so godlessly old! Dated 2007 or so. Back then people perhaps were playing not in casinos but with wooden sticks. Now the world so much changed and I feel so damn falling behind it. So what do you say? Anybody cares to visit a casino with me? We can visit a Titanic museum too if you wish. Or come to my house let's play backgammon at least. Let's get wasted! Let's feel the life!
    • I would discourage you from leaving the car in the street. People may steal side mirrors or puncture the tires just out of fun these days.
    • As compared to many other students, your essay is rather good. I like it.
    • I agree about the hygiene idea of tester bottles in the supermarkets, very good point! Actually all these designed bottle samples have the possibility of opening them and poking fingers into cosmetics. I see the matter is with the design itself. Why don't you try new 3D modelling software https://subscribe.cheapoemsoft.com/autodesk/autodesk-autocad-2018/ and design the bottles that are just right? My firm designs plastic screws for packaging, so I guess you can try your bottles too.
