Birchbox June 2015 (spoilers)

Recommended Posts

I know! The see-through ones look so awesome. 

While browsing the BB shop I found Peripera Peri's lip tint jelly, it also looks really fun! They have one that goes on blue but changes to a peach color on your lips. I may just buy that one too!

I really want to try that too! I recently bought the Peripera Lumi Pang Lip Gloss in sensual and really like it. It works better as a lip stain. Some people don't like the smell of it, but it goes away really quickly and does feel moisturizing.

I've never experienced "I don't want to even leave my house today" hot, but have experienced "I don't want to even leave my house today" cold, especially these past two winters. Negatives are not okay! Especially with a windchill!

I'm originally from Germany, so I am used to and love the cold weather. :)

I'm originally from Finland and I'm not good with dealing with the cold weather anymore. I'm too used to the sunny California weather. :)

I live about 40 miles outside of Houston city limits :)

 

that is a very true statement - sometimes it's "I don't want to even leave my house today" hot

I escape to Florida for the summer. Everyone there whines about the heat and humidity, and I just laugh. It's nothing compared to here. I remember a couple of years ago it was over 100 for a whole month, except for one day when it was only 99.

We spent our summer vacations in Florida with family who used to live there - it is nothing compared to here.

I received the Chosungah in Guava Jello (the translucent orange one) and I was pleased to find that I LOVE it. I swatched it on my hand first and it definitely leaves a nice tint with a bit of a staining effect (lasts around 4hrs). The shade is flattering with my skintone (neutral to yellow). I doubt I would have been as happy with the pink.

 

After the Jane Iredale last month, and then this one, I'm becoming a huge fan of these slightly staining, lip balm-type products. They pack a decent punch of color, last as long as a lipstick, but unlike lipsticks and gloss they don't leave a weird film on the lips as they wear off. I'd consider them sort of in between a tinted lip balm and a long-wearing lip stain: application is much easier than the latter, and granted they don't last as long, but patchiness/uneven application is a non-issue. 

 

I've happy enough with its performance that I would heartily recommend the Jello variety of the Chosungah lipstick for anyone on the fence about purchasing. It doesn't have any taste though, not sure why it's marketed as "flavorful"

Promo code TATIOFFER is apparently working if you want a Bb Women's sub for $1.00.  It applied in my cart for me, but I don't think it's a 100-point code, so I cancelled the promo on my cart page without checking out.  I don't want to use it if I only get 1 point when I subscribe. 

 

BB50OFF (pay $10, get 10 points) applied in-cart on a Bb Men's sub.  June samples on the Men's sub will be on the Bb website on May 25th, right?  I intend to use this promo if the Men's samples look really good.  I think this one works on Women's subs, too, but only paying $5 means only 5 points and I prefer to wait for a 100-point code.

I have lived in northern Ohio my entire life and I'm still not used to the cold. I need the heat!!! People here start wearing shorts when it's only in the 60's and I'm still wearing jeans and a sweater. It needs to be in the upper 70's without wind for me to wear shorts without being cold! I was NOT made for cold weather at all!

My last email avout PSY choices said it will go out the 27th, but if you shared your link and someone subbed you would get it the 25th (today). A friend of mine subbed but I haven't gotten the email yet today. Anyone else?

You'll get PYS email tomorrow. This is what the terms say "*You can get early access to sample choice by referring one or more friends by 5/25 at 11:59 p.m. You'll receive an email from Birchbox on 5/26 to make your selection"

Has anyone gotten an email?

Nope, but I am not sure I even want to pick a sample.  This will be my last month of my year sub and at the VERY least I am taking a break for a while.  I might roll the dice and leave this "Last Hurrah" box up to the BB gods.  I am crazy that way.  ;)

No email yet. I'm not thrilled with the pys choices but I'm certain if I leave two boxes up for chance I will get twins. I guess since I already know I'm getting two eyeliners this would be the month not to worry about that. It would be nice if each had 4 items I really wanted to try.

I didn't bother with early PYS referrals, even when I selected a sample last month Birchbox didn't give it to me. I think they just do what they want.

I picked the coola because last time I tried it I loved it. It's the only sunscreen I've tried that I can't smell the sunscreen smell on my face on and off most of the day.

I just got the email, and noticed that they are going to have a new option where you can ADD the guest editor box for $10 in addition to your 'regular' box. When I tried the link, it said it was 'out of stock', but that makes for a nice option if you want a particular PYS as well as the guest box. :)

Interesting. When I clicked on it it showed up as $15 and out of stock.

Yeah, I just saw that it was $15 after you posted that, and I went back and looked. Weird. I assumed the OOS was due to an extremely limited supply for the first trials, but if it is actually $15, that's not as good. :/

I'm getting those on my other account, and would have done both plus the guest editor box had the link not been out of stock..I got those in my Ipsy bag a few months back, and they are amazing for when my allergies give me what looks like two black eyes, lol

 

ETA:

I actually just sent off an email about it..I suspect I am one of the first to get the emails, and it may just be a website glitch, and darn it, if I can get both, I WANT TO. Figured it couldn't hurt to ask why the link was OOS/$15 at the very least. :)

Has anyone had any luck with box combos yet? I decided to resubscribe and don't think I'll pick a sample. I loved the eye gels but don't necessarily need them.

Report back if you hear anything. I'm not 100% into this month's guest editor box, but if they are planning to roll out the option long term, I'm sure I'll pick some of them up...especially for $10. $15 not so much.

It just occurred to me that it would mean having all your review points on one account. That would be a nice option instead of goofing around with two subs. Assuming they are just $10.

    • I want to share useful information in my opinion. Finally, in Tokyo, legalized gambling in casinos and now tokyo casinos are helping the country's economy. Also, in order to alleviate the fear of gambling addiction, a law was introduced obliging to pay 53$ per entry. I wonder what this will all lead, but if you look at it in the face of it, then this raises the country's economy to a new level, and this can be done in many countries in which they are ready to take the same measures.
