If you haven’t heard of Birchbox, let me formally introduce you: For $10 a month you get a snazzy little surprise box full of brand name makeup and beauty samples. Each box is gorgeously wrapped with fabulous things to try inside.
I have been using one brand of makeup for eons, and after getting sucked into the world of beauty bloggers, I have been wanting to expand the palette in my makeup bag.
This is exactly why I adore Birchbox. People ask me all the time “is Birchbox worth it?” and “Should I try Birchbox?” I say UH, YES. $10 for a box full of goodies isn’t a budget buster- plus you will feel like the birthday girl when you unwrap a gorgeously put together package of high-end samples.
I opened my January box which was wrapped in beautiful fuschia tissue to find a sample bottle of Zoya nail polish, Juicy Couture perfume and a whole bunch of other deliciousness. It was SO worth the money to feel like a birthday girl and this gorgeous gift-to-self sitting in my mailbox!
*p.s. Yesterday I spoke to a rep from Birchbox who pointed out that if you’re added to the wait list, that you won’t be waiting long! They hope to have enough supply next month!
