Birchbox October 2015 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

I got a sample of the benefit from Ulta a week ago and really love the brush. It's like someone took a large petrified spiky caterpillar and stuck it on the end of a wand. I can get all my top lashes in one stroke with no clumps. The W3ll people is a nice formula if you want a choice between daytime (one coat) and night time (2-3 coats). Also no clumps.  I will probably go with Roller since it's the one everyone has been buzzing about and I still haven't tried it.

It's been years since I've used Stila so I might want to try it for a change especially since I've tried they're real before.

I think I'm going to go for the Rollerlash on one account, since I've tried it before and love it, and the Stila on the other account since it's the only one that I've never tried and I'm not a huge fan of They're real or the Well People.

I think Birchbox stopped charging tax for new subscriptions (at least for NJ). I just used the "5BOX" code to get the October box at $5 and there was no tax this time.

If you want to subscribe/resubscribe or save on the next box of your current account, you can use this code until 10/9.

The curated box has something to do with breast cancer which I am wicked stoked about as I was diagnosed at 29 and am a 5 year survivor!

Congrats on the five year mark! May you celebrate many many MANY more 5 year marks :)

 

My mom and two of my aunts battled breast cancer. It's an awful disease. And you were diagnosed so young!

I'm underwhelmed by the guest editor boxes. I'm still unsure if I will pick a mascara or just leave it to chance. I think I'd be fine with any of them, although the Stila has my interest.

I'm so in love with the power pose box! So I'm definitely hoping to get that on one account! I'm almost thinking I won't pick a sample on my second account because I don't really care which one I'd receive, but I'm worried I'd receive another Well People...that would be my third and I'm not a big fan.

The Stila mascara looks interesting!

Those two curated boxes look like just GWP items to me personally, so I am going to have to pass on those.

 

That candle looks super cute though too! I wanted it the last time, but never got it. The $20 price tag is a little high for me I would say, so maybe I will pass on it again

Wish it was a Stila box! Changed that to mascara

Huh, I'm underwhelmed by the curated boxes too. I think I'm going with the Stila or a Roller Lash, as I haven't tried either. I like Estée Lauder, in theory, up don't need any more face primer or moisturizer or Clinique lipstick.

I love Lorelei's hair in that video.  I'm trying to figure out exactly what she did so I can give it a try.

 

I'm thinking of starting a second subscription just because I want to try the Stila mascara and the Power Pose box. I wonder if they'll let me do that with a new subscription.

I want that Stila mascara, but I want the Power Pose box, too. Hmm... I may need to reactivate my second account but I don't want to receive the customer favorites box or another September box. I wish there was a way around.

Lorelei has too much hairspray in the video, not a single strand was moving. I think you can use a wide curling iron (maybe 1.5" barrel size) and then apply a lot of hair spray.

 

If you start a second account don't forget to use the code 5BOX to get your first box at $5. And also use your original account's referral link to get $5 to shop in that account, too ;)

 

When you subscribe now you will receive the customer favorites box as your September box and you will be able to do sample choice for October.

If you are just doing this to get one of the curated boxes, you can just buy them for $10 as a subscriber. They are usually available for purchase the day to pick your sample choice goes out. I have done this several times. (It says $15 but turns into $10 in your cart). It also ships super fast, like a usual order. You also get points (you can also use points to buy)!

Wait, what? I want both boxes but don't want a 2nd sub. I can just buy the 2nd when I PYS?

yup!  just do a search for it (sometimes they even have a little clicky on the pick your sample that directs you to it)- if you search on the Birchbox site "customer favorites" which is the Sept currated box, that comes up right now to buy a la carte. Once Sept boxes are over, they should come up.

    • 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.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
