Birchbox July 2013 Review – Makeup Subscription
The July 2013 Birchbox theme is Power Play: beauty moves and routines that help you make the most out of any situation. This month they teamed up with the USA show Suits to pick some of the beauty samples!
The Box: Birchbox
The Cost: $10 a month (get one month free with an annual subscription)
The Products: Beauty and lifestyle samples selected by the Birchbox team.
Each box comes with a card detailing the “what” and “how” of each product. Basically this card tells you everything you need to know about why they selected the sample, and how to actually use it!
Birchbox and Color Club Wanderlust Collection Nail Lacquer in Pardon My French – Mini Bottle Value $4
Birchbox Bobby Pins – Value $2
I love collecting Color Club mini polishes! Color Club is hands down my favorite nail polish formula, so seeing this in the box was an immediate win for me! I don’t know the last time I wore bobby pins, but this pattern is cute enough for me to think about trying out bobby pins again!
Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup – .17 oz Value $6
This foundation from Benefit was the “Suits pick” of my box. I’m happy to see this is a good-size sample. I’ll definitely be able to decide if this foundation is for me before I run out!
Keratase Masque Chroma Captive Treat – (2 packets) 1 oz total – Value $9
Whish Shaving Cream in Blueberry – 22 mL Value $3
The reviews on Birchbox of both of these items are great – I will probably pass along the shave cream to a friend though. The blueberry scent just isn’t for me!
Verdict: I paid $10 for this box and received about $24 worth of product – I’m very happy with the July Birchbox! Plus all the sample sizes in this box are large enough to get multiple uses – plus no perfume samples! Yay! What did you get in your July Birchbox? Any new favorite products you recommend?
