Nice upgrades! I hope I get the same ones. Last month I got Lord & Berry Mascara and Smith&Cult nail polish. I was really happy with them. Looking forward to the upgrades again this month. Hoping they will be as good as last month.

I SERIOUSLY love that mascara. I used to buy it regularly, then Prescriptives became hard to find.

In my 38 years of wearing mascara, and trying everything, I think, this is my number one all time favorite. It did things for my lashes that nothing else, not even the newest formulas can do.

 

I'm totally thrilled to be getting the mascara and he Laura Mercier lip because I also use Laura Mercier cosmetics quite frequently but never have had a lip product of hers. It's like they sent a survey out and asked what brands and items we would love and put my top two in this box, no kidding. :)

Just luck, of course, and I hope everyone getting an Upgrade box will also see their HG items and brands featured in the future. :) I love the Upgrade boxes and hope they continue the program.

I received a Cargo eye shadow and Laura Mercier lipstick as my upgrades. The lipstick color, Mod is too bright for my taste and it flew out of the container when I opened it. It was really weird. Also the Cargo eye shadow fell out of the pan and crumbled when I opened the container. I was able to salvage part of the shadow and put it back in the pan. I've never had this happen before.

@@Reija that's really strange. You should let BB know...I am sure they will do something about it.

I sent them an email about it. My first ever issue with them and I've been a subscriber since the beginning. It was just strange it happened.

Does everyone get the same upgraded items every month or do they vary?

Same thing happened with both my items as well. They're sending replacements for both. Not sure if I'm keeping the upgrade. Lipstick color is crazy bright. Shadow is pretty but I don't know if it's worth it to me. I did end up loving the Lord & Berry mascara from last month.

The lipstick is too bright for me also. I tried the shadow today (the part that I was able to salvage) and it was ok. I have other colors similar. I loved the mascara as well from last month so I was looking forward to this month. I like LM so I was excited to get the lipstick only to find out it wasn't the right shade for me. :(

I just got notice that I'm getting a replacement box shipped now. I'm happy with that.

I'm so glad. I hope you get another color of lipstick.

 

I'm SO bummed that they passed up the Prescriptives mascara. It's so much better than that Lord and Berry stuff..

 

I haven't gotten my upgrade boxes yet. Just got a sad little $10 box with that horrid Yu-Be sample and some other teeny tiny things that roll around in the tiny Birchbox. 

Think I'm going to all upgrade boxes or cancelling an account. Not sure which.

I've got a banner advertising the upgraded box and theres a link under "your box" - guess they are ready to add more people to beta? weird since i saw people saying customer service told them no. 

 

my box still isn't here yet. last month they left out the mascara and had to send a replacement so hopefully no issues this time.

My replacement box came and it was only my eyeshadow. Got an email saying they ran out of lipsticks and here is $5 sorry points. I'm not happy. $5 sorry points doesn't buy me a full size item. Waiting to hear back again.

What color of shadow did you get? I got the purple and I will not wear it.  Mine was busted as well.  I sent CS an email just asking for points, unless they can send me another color of shadow, which I'm not sure they can do.  I also am canceling the upgrade, it's not worth it to me.  I'd rather spend the $20 on something I know I will use.

 

Also, I think that them sending a full eye shadow when they actually only sell the palette is kind of weird?

I also decided to downgrade, as this is just not worth it to me anymore. I was happy with my Cargo shade, but like others mentioned earlier, it arrived partially shattered, so I had that taupe shimmery dust all over the place. I just sent my CS request today, so I'm not sure if I made it in time for June billing, I guess we'll see.

My Cargo shadow also arrived partially shattered, which means 2/2 months something has been wrong with my upgraded items. :/  I really like the items I am getting though, so I think I will give it another month and see what happens.

 

I wore the lipstick today and loooved it. the color is great and it stayed on for way longer than my lip color usually does.

My replacement box came today. The eye shadow was open inside the box but it wasn't shattered like the last one was. Also the lipstick was ok this time. I'm going to stick with the upgrade for a bit longer to see what next month brings.

I signed up for a 2nd Birchbox with the upgraded items and it was supposed to start in May. I got my box and no upgraded items or beauty blender that I was supposed to get. I was even charged for the upgraded box. I emailed them and they said it was a technical glitch and they'll refund my $20 and start it next month. I think this upgraded box is too shaky, why can't it be more like Birchbox men?

They need to create a NEW BOX design for the Upgrade Box. If men get a larger box for $20, I want a larger box for $30, too.

 

The men's box is quite a bit larger than the women's regular box.

 

The problem is that most full sized cosmetics will NOT fit in a tiny $10 Birchbox, and that's how short-sighted they are with shipping the most premium box they sell monthly.

That is such a good point! I didn't even think of that but it's so true. How can they fit full size products in the regular $10 box?? The products have to be little such as lipsticks and nail polishes etc. Bigger products don't fit.

I've written them twice about the small box issue vs. the men's box.

Could you add your voice too? They are really missing the boat and it's such a simple fix. :)

How do you guys opt out of upgraded add on's I don't see an option to un-enroll on my account?

 

Do I need to email them?  I am supposed to get a mascara this month I don't want another mascara (particularly that I've already sampled) again next month.
