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.

    • It's Sunday. I don't feel said about anything, except for worrying about by elderly father catching coronavirus, because I could not stand to see him suffer, and feeling sad when I hear about the people who passed away. I feel lucky I still have my job, and they even gave my full hours back. Hours have been cut pretty much since December. My Dad asked me to find out when senior shopping time is, and my heart went out to him. Then he came back from shopping and he was happy, because he found cleaning wipes and groceries. He got me M&Ms. Maybe I get my love of shopping from my folks, lol. All I can think of is that stimulus check we're going to get, how if my job keeps on, I can use that to pay a credit card off, oh, that would be so amazing! And trying to use up my 2017 samples. My little hopes and dreams are surviving. Last night I went to visit my friend who lives alone. She said, I'm so depressed because I'm alone in the house. I said, that's what you need to stay alive right now. It is an advantage. But she did not see how that was a good thing.  Also I was watching a Sophie Shohet video on YouTube and in the comments someone had a good tip: keep nails really short, as long nails can get germs under them that may not come off when you wash hands. 
    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books.
