Birchbox October 2015 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

I ended up picking the W3ll People mascara because I've never tried their mascara. I'm interested in trying a more of natural mascara and see how it compares.

Got the Eyeko, mostly because I was surprised to see it as an option since it wasn't in the spoiler. Plus it's not something I see available at most beauty retailers, so it's not something I'd usually get to try. Anyone have experience with it?

I have the Eyeko mascara, got it in one of the boxes but can't remember which one, and I really like it. It makes the lashes full and lasts well without fall out.

I didn't realize it worked this way if you have an upgraded box. Good to know! I always wondered why I didn't get that option. :)

I hope this is just a glitch in the Beta system and BB fixes it soon. :)

Did anyone make a new account and use the 5offbox code?? Bc my box page finally loaded and it's not the costumer favorite one and it's probably one of the worst boxes I have ever got :( what does yours say??

I chose the Stila mascara for my PYS. I hope a get a good box this month. The last few boxes have been terrible for me and I haven't cancelled just because of the awesome rewards system.

I missed my email so who knows what mascara I'll get. I don't really care as long as it's not Benefit's They're Real. I've gotten quite a few samples of it in the past and I'm not all that impressed with it to be honest. Right now my HG mascara is Blinc Amplified. It comes off with water and pressure. The little tubes slide right off! However it's waterproof, no smudging and can be worn to water parks with no raccoon eyes (just don't rub your eyes because the tubes will slide off)! 

 

This will be my 5th box and I honestly like Ipsy way better. I decided to try it because I heard people rave about it. My samples so far have been in awful colors or small sizes. They've also sent me perfume in every box. I think I've maybe gotten one product out of each box that was usable. The points system is great though. So I haven't canceled but I'm still hoping for better. No more blue eyeliner, crayon lip colors, pinkie sized tubes or horribly smelly things.

I had to look up blinc when I saw "tubes slide ride off". This is something i definitely want to try now. Mascara seems as personal as hair care stuff. I liked Benefit because it makes me look like I am wearing false lashes. But yeah it does take quite an effort to get the stuff off at the end of the day. 

 

Summer for birchbox tends to be tons of sunscreen and bronzer. There can also be weird disparity in box values based on profiles. I have two accounts and one always gets better stuff. My dopple is younger and makes twice as much money as the honest profile, so that might have something to do with it.

The blinc is definitely a lazy persons mascara so I love it. I don't have to use a bunch of eye makeup remover at the end of the day or carry extra stuff around with me to remove my makeup if I go somewhere. Also if I make a mistake and get mascara all over my eyelid it wipes right off with a dry q-tip. Sephora had it in their last Sephora Favorites Lash Stash To Go for $25 which is how I found it. If it comes back in stock you should get it because it also has a voucher for a free full size of whichever one you want. I obviously chose the blinc.

 

I received sunscreen in every box over the summer and it was tiny baby tubes . I don't expect full size but maybe something with at least an ounce of product in it. Two uses and I'm out, I can barley tell if I like it or not.  

 

I feel like the Benefit They're Real mascara gets clumpy really fast it also seems to be the "cake face" of mascara to me but that's just my personal opinion. It's alright if I'm putting on a bunch of makeup and a smoky eye but most of the time it looks too harsh for daytime. Though my problems with it could just be user error, I tend to work better with fluffy brushes compared to plastic ones.

Mine just popped up. Hooray for no perfume or Benefit's They're Real! With Birchbox in things that can come in multiple colors are the colors they show you the ones you're getting or do you not know until you get your box? 

 

My cheat shows-

 

Avene Thermal Spring Water- I don't really use facial mists that much but I will try it. It say's it's supposed to be soothing and hydrating so it might be good when it gets cold and my skin gets chapped.

 

BioRepublic Skincare Cucumber Breeze Fiber Mask- I got these in Ipsy and I liked them. I'm not sure if I'm happy for more of these or sad because it's not something new to try.

 

Manna Kadar Lip Locked- I can always use lip gloss. I hope I get a usable color. Anything but red or hot pink.

 

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray- I don't like dry shampoo so I don't think I'll be crazy about this. I may have liked it for it's texturizing properties when my hair was shorter. 

 

Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara- This was the one I was probably going to pick if I had gotten my email before they were all gone. 

 

Now I just pray they are not baby sized samples meant for a Barbie.

I don't know how I feel about mine...   BORGHESE Fango Purificante Purifying Mud Mask for Face and Body 

 
Juliette Has a Gun Gentlewoman 
 
Davines LOVE Smoothing Conditioner
 
Davines LOVE Smoothing Shampoo
 
Vasanti® BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
 
Benefit Roller Lash Super-Curling & Lifting Mascara

 

I love masks. Got the Davine's in the Curl box but I like Davines. And I thought perfumes were only a once in awhile thing. I got Harvey Price last month. 6 samples to review but a foil and a perfume?

Macadamia dry shampoo: happy

Acure mask: I like this brand. I have a lot of masks though.

Pretty happy, it's well rounded.
