November 2016 Birchbox *Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

I really like the look of the box for November, its girly without being too girly. I was looking back through my boxes and so far this year I've only received one perfume sample so I'm guess I'm due for one sooner or later.

Reddit has a thread with the spoilers (screen shots from the app it looks like)- coastal scents blush/bronzer, chella eyebrow pencil, and jane iredel mini sheer lipstick (whatever it is called).

 

The curated box is the one that was spoiled with the number 4 and benefit theyre real, etc.

 

I am usually a little defensive about Birchbox and can usually find at least one sample to be curious about but this is a pretty terrible month of options (in my opinion)- especially compared to October. These all seem like lackluster brands/recycled items.

 

I am surprised too since they must know many people's annual subs are running out around now- I was actually considered renewing mine, since Oct and Sept were so strong (giving me the impression they improved the samples after removing the points)- but this is once again reminding me why I should probably let it go when my Dec box is up... #toobad

Blah if that holds true I'll get the blush/bronzer combo, but it's nothing to get overly excited about.   

 

Usually I like the featured box enough to buy it separately but not this one.

None of the sample is new or that exciting that I want to get it again....

I'm going to get the coastal scents blush highlight combo. It's the only product I haven't tried before and I know I'll use it. I don't mind the eyebrow pencil either but I think I've tried it.

 

I'm undecided if I want to pick up the featured box. I am curious about that tinted under eye concealer/cream.

I don't know what to pick- nothing is standing out to me,

Thanks for posting @@Bizgirlva! I'm going with the Jane Iredale. I have it already but I like and I'll just throw this in my purse for back up.

There's an even bigger palette.

I canceled again (didn't forget this month). I'm just going to wait and see what everyone else's boxes look like. I feel like that really is the way to go with them unless you have your heart set on a certain item that you want to choose as your sample for the month. For me this months box was meh, last months box was amazing, the month before that was curated and prior to that it was awful. I agree with everyone else the sample choice is unexciting like always. I'm a bit surprised how bad the curated box is this month though. Exactly what everyone wants another black eyeliner, their billionth tube of Benefit's They're Real Mascara, a tinted eye cream that will be the wrong shade, a perfume sample that we all try desperately to avoid, and a bland hair product (the hair product is actually the only thing I would be happy with in the box but I doubt it's very enticing to most people).

Think I'm going with the curated, none of the sample choices appeal to me at all. I go through black eyeliner and mascara like crazy....so unlike 99% of BB subscribers I'm always happy to get that mascara (except the Milk stuff, it kinda sucked).

Sample choice day today for aces, when I logged on two of the three options were marked out of stock! Both the eyebrow pencil and lip item were out of stock. I was planning to pick the blush/highlighter anyway....but still that's crazy!

I saw that on the app, but the mobile site still shows everything as available, and I was able to pick the brow pencil.

Looks like a lot of the add-ons are out of stock too. I was considering the Amika dryer but it's sold out. The Rifle 2017 planner in the rose pattern is sold out too.

I was undecided until I saw the coastal scents duo in the video, I might order that big palette. I have maybe two opened Chella eyebrow pencils and a brand new one on my tradelist and I think I have that Jane Iredale product already so those were out for me. Can't wait to see what else is going to be in the box.

I ordered the curated box, even though a lot of it I've already tried (mascara and liner, which I'll swap easily). 

 

The "mysterbox" code worked for me again, I figured $10 for two Birchbox was a pretty good deal (if they honor the mysterbox code again).

I am an ACE and I totally forgot about picking a sample choice until this morning! I logged in and to my surprise everything was still there. I picked the coastal scents duo (mainly to pick something).

 

Remember when you had to rush to make your choice because every choice used to go so fast?

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
