Birchbox July 2015 (Spoilers)

Recommended Posts

Has anyone seen this?  It looks like Birchbox is partnering with GAP again.  From the gap_flood Instagram.

I don't think this partnership has anything to do with the July box. Birchbox has been making noise on their various social media that you can now purchase birchbox products (their 'exclusive' brands like Beauty Protector, Parlor, etc) inside Gap locations in NYC, San Francisco, and Houston. These locations might also have a "build your own box" thing like at the Birchbox NYC store. I'm not sure if/when there are plans to bring it to Gap stores elsewhere.

I stopped by a Gap here in Chicago with the Birchboxes in store. Sadly, I have to report, you don't get to build boxes at the store I went to on State Street. You can buy a "pre-made" box for either the ladies or the gents. I can't remember specially what was in each, but I remember the ladies' box had the Amika dry shampoo, a Supergoop product, an Eyeko fat eyeliner in a sort of shimmery mocha color, and two other things. I can't recall the contents of the men's box other than earbuds. The items, I would think, are set since they were displayed in the plexiglass on top of the fixture (like the one in the pic posted earlier). They did also have this wacky subscription option available- you could sign up in store for three months for either the men or women's box. Here's the thing- if you decide to go for the subscription, you can walk out with your first box- there was a section of the fixture that had pre-made boxes, but they had the familiar outer shipping packaging, so I would think those would be complete surprises as to what's inside....

Sample choice video up on youtube for july!

 

 

Thanks for posting. I'm completely meh about all of the choices. Looking back though, July and August are historically meh months for me with Birchbox. Summer and I do not get along in any sphere.

aghhh.

 

I hate those shades for stila and I dislike that product in general  - I've already gotten this in my BB before - so I am getting a duplicate product.   I was thinking of getting the curated box so I wouldn't get stuck with the stila product, but they have it in there TOO.

 

 

blech.

I already have Stila liquid lipstick from in Beso from August 2013 box.

 

I will probably get the coral color and the beachy bright box.

Well at least is month if bb forgets to send my PYS email I won't be upset. If they do I'll be choosing the stila in the pink or coral. As long as I don't get red I'm happy.

I love Stila liquid lipstick, I have a couple tubes of the Beso color and love it! Can't wait to pick that and I might pick the curated box for my other account. I like that they show you what one of beta box items will be; I'm definitely going to be canceling the upgrade I do not need anymore mascara. What's the Juara product in the curated box? I'm obsessed with their candlenut body creme.

Looks like a great month to me! I think I'll even re-activate my second account so I can get a regular box and the guest editor box. I also like the turkish towels, but I have a couple from Popsugar already.

 

Now, I just hope I remember to do sample choice! I'm due with my first baby this Friday! Hopefully he makes it on time and I catch the e-mail next week in my sleep deprived state! :lol:

I've never tried or owned any liquid lipsticks before so I am excited for this month. The curated box is calling my name because it has theBalm in it, also the hair and skin product interest me. I looked at swatches and Venezia looks very orange, but I will probably pick it on my second account.

I'm excited for the stila liquid lipstick in beso. At least it is a fun multi use higher end product AND we get to choose a shade! The add ons this month are so so tempting. If I wasn't on a strict budget right now I would splurge on the Turkish towel and water bottle. I'm just going to hope the towel ends up in the shop in a couple months so I can use points!

I think I'm going to pick the lipstick in Bella.  I have Beso, and Venezia looks like itll be too orange for me.

 

So are we never getting the eyeko liners?

That's what I was wondering. Maybe they will just throw it in as a sample in boxes randomly :/

From another post, sounds like those ended up in the boxes being sold at the Gap stores. :/

I'm actually kind of digging the curated box for July! I'm soooooo over seeing Supergoop in Birchbox, but I do like their products in general. I'm curious about the Juara scrub -- if it's like the Vasanti I'll be happy. I'm a total sucker for theBalm :)

I just reserved a Sunny Day Towel.  I noticed after I reserved it, that Birchbox Plus item are no longer returnable.

 

I think I want the curated box.  I was going to go for the Bella shade of Stila, so I think it is my best bet.  I want to try salt spray.  I have straight hair and never tried a salt spray.  I do love the design of the bold July box!

Can someone please remind me when I can safely re-sub in order to get a July box. I don't want a June box but I want one of the July add ons. TIA!!

Thanks!

 

Also, do you get BB points for the add ons? I've never done an add on before so sorry for all the questions!

    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
