Birchbox April 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

the colors are pretty, but the problem I have with POP is that there is no pigmentation and tons of fallout.

I'm sure it's just my cool-tone eyes, but all these colors look to be in the warm peachy orange category.  It's so depressing to keep getting nice products that I can't wear.

Hey everyone!

 

Does anyone have any more information of this upgraded subscription that they are offering now? I just logged into my account and it was that for $30 a month you get 2 (I think it was two) full size makeup or luxury nail products in addition to your normal 5 samples.   Of course I can't find anything about it on the website now and the only other upgrade option I see is yearly.   Sorry if this is in the wrong place!

I ended up taking the upgrade when it showed up in my account. It said on the upgrade offer that it would be 2 full size makeup or luxury nail products. I don't think there is anything mentioned on the website about it. I didn't see anything when I upgraded. The only notice I saw was the email and the time I logged in and it popped up.

For anyone who might be interested!

 

The Jane Iredale lip product is the "Lip and Cheek Stain" according to some bloggers that have posted the April sample choices.  So while it looks like a light lip color, it actually comes out in a pretty rosey pink tone. 

 

I've had this product in the past but it broke and fell out the tube (it was the same sample size) but it's a really fantastic product and I definitely recommend it!

I'm just not as excited by Birchbox, or indeed any subs, now than I was a few months ago, possibly because it was in the dead of winter and I had nothing to look forward to.  I cancelled my second account and these PYS choices aren't making me want to resub.

I think the shown lippie is Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper in Sydney (shimmering salmon). I saw that Birchbox UK sampled it in September 2014, the sample packaging looks identical. If it's one of the PYS I will probably get this one. I have too many blushes and after hearing all those bad things about POP I won't even go there (thanks for the warning @biancardi).

I will probably cancel my second sub. One account is more than enough for me.

I hope we get good options.

If anyone likes to unsub/resub for points, JILLIAN is worth 100 points right now. I don't do this very often, but hey it's there, I might as well use it!

I think I'm going with the Jane Iredale, as I like the brand, assuming there are any available when I get to pick. Although the Mad Men box could be awesome. I've liked every curated box I've recieved. But I'm terrible with liquid liner, if that is one of the things in it!

 

Come on, PYS video! I feel like it's really late. I think I'm just impatient. I also want to see the box add ons. If they are MM themed too, they could be fun!

Hello, ladies!

 

I've just resubbed to birchbox after over a year ago I cancelled. My question is: I subbed for Mad Men box (Just because I'm crazy for this show) will I automatically get this box, or the normal random one? I read somewhere and it said I have to sub before 21st to get that box.

 

Thanks!

If you don't get the email you could contact CS and tell them you are a huge fan of the show and signed back up in the hopes of getting that box.

Thank you ladies for response. i saw that Birchbox starts to have better and bigger samples now and I hope to get something nice. Back in 2013 when I received my one and only box, it was soooo tiny :/

If you want to ensure getting the curated box, you should refer a friend to get your sample choice e-mail 1 day earlier than non-Aces since usually curated boxes sell out within the first day.

You will receive a welcome box for March and another box (hopefully the curated) for April, both will probably arrive within the same week (yay!) :)

Also, I would suggest following Birchbox Facebook feed on the early sample choice day to see if others are receiving their e-mails so that you can contact CS if you don't receive yours.

Good luck.

    • Hello! I still wouldn't give up headphones. I can’t do without music) At my house I made a large audio system with a modern receiver. It gives amazing sound quality. You can visit the site to Compare AV receivers. Do you feel what opportunities open up for music lovers? I even argued with my friends about this. However, they acknowledged my point when they listened to the music of Lindsay Stirling in my home.
    • I have had no problem whatsoever applying false eyelashes (with adhesive) for the past 10 years or so of my life. For some reason within the last month absolutely no matter what product I use (lashes or adhesive) my falsies refuse to stick. I try holding them down and they simply spring off once I remove my fingers. It’s incredibly bizarre. I can’t recall having changed my beauty routine in the last few weeks and my skin is not oily, nor am I using oil based products on my eyes. Does anyone have any idea what’s happening or what I might try to fix it!? 
    • How many people - so many opinions. I really like music but can’t use headphones. This puts pressure on my head and my head begins to hurt in an hour. I NEVER saw my friends really high-quality headphones. They always have flaws in sound. Only the option from the recording studio suited me completely. This is a very, VERY expensive option. Therefore, I limited myself to buying a home theater with surround sound and a good audio system in the car.
    • Always welcome, can I help you with something else?
