Birchbox October 2015 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Have you ever tried subscribing mid month? If yes, how long did it take for Birchbox to ship your first box?

I want that gorgeous Power Pose box and am thinking of creating a third subscription using BCABOX code to get it as my October box. But, I will be traveling for long at the end of this month and am trying to see if they ship fast enough to reach here on time. My boxes usually take 4-5 days to arrive once they are introduced to the system.

i subbed late and wrote to them this question. They said it takes 8-10 just to process the order. I resubbed on the 4th. Although they have been shipped I still don't have either of my boxes. I live in upstate NY.  Neither was a BCA box though. Maybe the special ones go out faster.

I got my box today. It came earlier than my boxes normally. I'm really excited about this box. This is the last box that came upgraded with the two full size products since the beta program is being cancelled in November. I tried the Lord and Berry lip crayon and I was really impressed. I'll need to look into getting other colors. W3LL People mascara was my sample choice. I look forward to trying the mascara. I love the Smith & Cult lipglosses so I was so happy to get another one.

I re-subbed on the first exactly and just got that box today. My other account was already subscribed and I got that box several days ago.

I have to be honest, this branded makeup concerns me. It is giving me Memebox flashbacks.

It was my initial thought too but I'm hoping this will be a different situation. The concept sounds cool (smaller sizes, colors on trend etc). I hope they hit it out of the park with this one. I'm interested in seeing how the formulations compare to other lines.

It would surprise me if Birchbox made the major mistakes that Memebox did. I'll be watching this closely. My annual sub is up for renewal in December.

I am really interested in the new LOC make up.  I like Tati a lot too.  I just don't want to buy any yet because I want to wait and see what they will be sending from this new line in the November box first.

My curiosity got the best of me and I just ordered a matte lip color and a shadow stick. I wanted to wait for the next box to see if we get samples but I'm having trouble waiting :D The price point is good so I ended up ordering.

My second box arrived yesterday and it had a pillow pack. Maybe BB put them randomly.
I love that Stila mascara, it is so good!

Yes! The Stila is amazing! I'll definitely get a full size!

So I know this kind of petty but I got my box today and the card that lists all the items you got and how much the full size costs wasn't in the box. Anyone else missing it? I didn't get a curated box...just curious!

I did get a card, but it was generic (in my non-curated box). One side read "Positive Force" with the monthly blurb, and the other said "We hope you ❤️ Your box. Learn more about your samples at birchbox.com/mybox"

 

No pillow packs either!

I opened another account just to get the Power Play Box...I should have purchased it right away but I was waiting for reviews and by then boxes got sold out. It is now more than a week and yet no shipping info...

will the box ever arrive :angry:

I do not want to get anything else other than the Power Play box... :scared:

I resubbed in October to get a mascara but my box on my account does not show a mascara. I thought it said every box is guaranteed a mascara? Even my resub email stated that.

 

Did anyone else not get a mascara?

I resubbed to get the Beauty Blender (whether it will show or not is the question).  Do they ususally ship those extra items with the regular box or separately?

 

I got a shipping notice today so I am getting October's box instead of waiting until November.

 

Apparently when you cancel BB they try to woo you into staying this time by sending you a bad box (rather odd psychology).  My cheat shows:

 

Davines Love Shampoo and Conditoner

English Laundry perfume (apparently when you resub you start all over again with the 6 perfume sample max)

Shiseido (hopefully a good size....I think I tried a foil of this and liked it)

Dinoplatz highlighter (meh)

 

I'll be happy with the points though because it'll help get me back over 100 so I can order something.  And if the Beauty Blender comes it will be worth it. 

 

 

P.S.  Someone posted about everyone getting a mascara....obviously I'm not getting one.

I added a second subscription because I wanted the Beauty Blender. I thought I was just going to get my first one in November but I got a tracking number today. I'm happy with it for the most part though. I was hoping to snag one of those Dinoplatz highlighters though. In this one I received

 

EXO Supply Co. Pure Remover Wipes- Considering I'm getting ready to cover my nails in an impossible to remove polish I'll be happy to try these. 

 

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray- I do not like dry shampoo type things. I even said my hair was dry (even though it's not) in hopes of avoiding these. I got this in my other box also. Not really sure what I'm gonna do with these yet. 

 

Dr.Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant- I don't use scrubs that often because I have a Clarisonic and rely heavily on chemical exfoliants. However I'm happy to get this though and will make sure to use it when my skin really needs it. 

 

Benefit They're Real! Lengthening Mascara- I will use it but was hoping for something I hadn't already tried. 

 

Acure Organics Cell Stimulating Facial Mask- I love masks so I love that I got this.

Did you ever end up with the box?  I ordered on 10/21 and haven't had any shipping notification yet.  Customer service wasn't helpful when I asked about it.
