August Birchbox Reveal

Yesterday was a long and stressful day at work, so I called my mom to meet me for happy hour on my way home. She arrived and instantly I felt much better, but when she handed me my Birchbox package for this month I was ecstatic. My mom just laughed and said “Yeah, it arrived this afternoon and I figured you would need a pick me up.” She couldn’t have been more right. We looked pretty ridiculous as I ripped open the box {literally while sitting at the bar} and started looking/reading about my goods.
So here is a break down of my goods for this month:
1.       blinc Mascara  
2.       Kate Spade Twirl Perfume Sample
3.       Twistband Hair Tie
4.       Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
5.       Befine Night Cream

I honestly couldn’t be happier. For only $10, I got my day brightened, samples of good cosmetics, and got to try them all this morning. Seriously, I am so geeked by this box that I am actually wearing the hair tie {which doesn’t leave a line/bump in your hair}, mascara {so creamy and looks amazing}, and smell like Twirl. Yeah, this little box was just what I needed to get out of a root on Thursday… well I bet the few drinks during happy hour totally helped too!

So for those out there who haven't signed up, do it! {Let me know and I'll give you my referral card.}Its like Christmas once a month. You have no idea what you will get! Anyone else get their Birchbox? Happy with it? Anything different?

Def would love to try that! And now I'm on a hunt for the twist tie. I hate that my hair always has lines from elastics.

Glad your day got better! =)

I've been hearing about it but didn't know if it was worth it...But the idea of having something fun come in the mail every month is just too enticing! :p How do I sign up?

Rebecca said...

thats such a good deal! That size of smashbox is usually 14 bucks!!
do you do like a survey for birchbox so they know what products you like or everyone gets same ones?

My mascara was missing from my box! I got two items of befine instead of the smashbox. Still loving Birchbox!

I had the same box but instead of the Smashbox Primer that I reallllly wanted I got some kind of facial cleanser.
