January 2016 Birchbox **Spoilers**

Recommended Posts

This is what is showing in the refer a friend page- it seems these tend to be the pick your samples. 

 

 

 

Looks like we finally have the option to get that black Eyeco liner  :lol:. Not entirely sure what the other two are- lip gloss and primer maybe?? (Sorry I have no idea how to make the picture a spoiler- if anyone can fix that!)

I own that tony moly lip stain. I think 3b sent it to me. The packaging is adorable and it smells like cherries, however it never applies evenly and makes my lips looked chapped. I will probably end up with another curated box.

That's good to know because honestly none of these products make me excited (but actually I really can't tell what number 3 is)- but the Tony Moly was my first choice, but your comment now makes me wonder if I should just not choose one or hope for an awesome curated box... I guess it really depends what number 3 is :)

I'll probably go with the eyeko, as I've been overloaded with lip products lately, and I already have the primer (and like it, but have a ton of primers).

 

I hope the curated box doesn't have any duplicates. I just signed my second account up for an annual with the great Black Friday deal, so assuming that box is good, I'll get that on one account.

Hmm. I don't know about these options. Maybe the lip stain.

 

Somewhat related, it looks like Birchbox is unrolling another in-house brand, Arrow:

Looks like I'm narrowing down to one box this month and will pick the lip stain will probably purchase the curated box as an add on.

Idk if you follow Rachel on instagram..... but she's been on an "ingredient conscious" kick lately so this release would make a lot of sense

The curated box is the way to go for this PYS.  I think it's weird that 2 of the 3 sample choices are in the curated box.  Not a lot of choices.

So I cancelled my account to use a year subscription card beginning in January... how should I go about this without receiving a second December box?

You mean you bought yourself a yearly sub? I think there is a way to just apply the money to your existing account. Otherwise you might want to message them because a new account could get a customer favorites as the first box regardless of when you sub.

I agree and find it annoying that they're forcing you basically to get the not that fantastic sample choices for December and again in January.  

 

Is it just me or are these sample sizes getting smaller each month???

I feel like the sample sizes that I have been getting lately are significantly smaller than the samples that I used to get when I first subbed. It's disappointing and irritating at the same time.

I am definitely getting the curated box this month! As much as I usually like the surprise, my surprises haven't been all that great since like September. I also agree that the samples have been getting smaller the past few months, which I guess is okay since I haven't really loved a box in awhile.

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
