December 2015 Birchbox *Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

I can't find the CS styleEyes swatches anywhere, I'm trying to figure out if the cream shadow is matte or shimmery. Can anyone tell?

Cream seems to have matte finish from the video. Rose gold is clearly shimmery on the same palette, cream's finish looks different to me.

Can you enlarge the green and gold one like this one? So helpful seeing it big like that. Why did they have to make it so hard to see? How can we make a choice with vague colors? I'm most likely getting the rose gold/ cream but I want to see the green/gold closer to be sure! I hope everyone is getting a chocolate this time too.

Here are the all three of them. She kept shaking the green one, so this is the best I could get. It seems like, finishes are (L-R): Shimmery - shimmery / matte - shimmery / shimmery - shimmery (thou the amount of shimmer in black seems to be less than the others).

Hope this helps =)

Today is sample choice day for Aces and folks who referred friends. At 1:20 pm est the sample choice option was available on my box page. I picked the green/gold shadow. Haven't received a confirmation email yet, but it usually comes a few hours after I choose a sample.

 

Hope everyone gets their first choice!

You can choose your sample choice today too if you are an ACE. I chose the gold and green shadow since I don't have colors like that already.

I chose formal eyes the rose gold. I hope this is a good box. It's my only sub left and I'm thinking about letting this one go too. I just have too many similar products. I will probably keep it for a few more boxes though.

I chose the grey and black because I have greens and reds and golds galore and I think darker colors look better with my eyes anyways? Here's hoping they're pigmented though. The videos of shadows never seem like they're pigmented to me, like when they had the POP shadows, but the plum one I received back then is gorgeous!

I reserved the volumizing spray. I figure, I probably won't use the shadow no matter what shade I get so I might as well reserve something I KNOW I'll like. I was torn with the curated box because I LOVED that lip/cheek stain back when it was a PYS. Fingers crossed maybe I get it again!

I reserved the curated box.  I think I'll use everything in it except maybe the hair product.  I wasn't going to get it but the photo and description showed the pink/rose color eyeshadow, which is the one I wanted anyhow.  I hope it's the color I get.  And yay...chocolate!

I'm confused does the curated box have the pink eyeshadow or the green? I have two accounts and want to get the curated on one and pick the other eyeshadow color in my surprise box. I really don't want to end up with two of the same color........

I'm annoyed with myself. I picked the curated box b/c I love all things peach and wanted the lip/cheek stain. Then I remembered I had the Jane Iredale lip/cheek stain in forever pink so I decided to swatch it with a q-tip. I hadn't tried it b/c those type of things usually turn hot pink on me and that's not the best color on me. Anyway, I swatched it and waited for the color to develop, and waited, and waited... Well, it's shiny... wish I'd just picked the pink shadow instead of the curated box. Anyone use the Jane Iredale lip/cheek stain and like it? Maybe I just need to use more?

I use it and love it. However, the color tint for both the peach and the pink is very minimal - less than with fresh lip balms. It's great from a moisture/conditioning perspective; it's very, very mild from a color payoff perspective.

You can email them and they will change PYS for you. It worked for me last month.

I received the Jane Iredale lip stain and the chocolate before. Will I still be able to review them for points this month if I pick the curated box?
I picked the spray on one account and want to pick the curated on the other one, but don't want to lose 20 points.
With so many palettes to go through, I probably won't use the shadows anyway.

If the colors / varieties are listed the same way, then no. There's a chance the chocolate will be a different listing (unless you got that actual variety before).

Hmm. My annual is up, so I just opted out of auto-renewal. Unless there is a code for a % off of the annual, I think I may skip December.

 

There will be a code on Black Friday for 25% off everything in their shop, including subscriptions...

Thanks, I was afraid of that. I asked the CS and one of them told me to send the reviews to him and he will add my points =) 

I will pick the curated as my second PYS.

 

Just used the ACESONLY code and 200 points to get an Everyday Glamour box and a Man MSP for only $16 =) I love 30% off codes.

I've received duplicates of products by choosing curated boxes several times now, and each time, I send a quick message to CS and get my review points with no problem. :)

Am I the only one in love with the editor box? Might want to get that organizer as an add-on, it is super cute!

I got the editor box and I got the organizer and the pouch/matchbook nail files as add ons for my ace account.

 

I went with the spray with the other account because I really don't care for any of the eyeshadows.

    • 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.
