Friends Ella Earbuds – Value $99

These are definitely the most stylish headphones I’ve ever come across! Better yet, the sound quality is great.

They come with a carrying pouch too!

Folli Follie Metallic Makeup Bag – Value $80

This item was the surprise of the box for me – I think it’s my favorite item! Birchbox describes it as having “buttery soft leather” and I would agree! It’s officially my new makeup bag!

(This value is an estimate based on other similar Folli Follie makeup bags I could find online).

Cynthia Rowley – Value $25

Sadly this eye shadow palette arrived with a little damage, but fortunately it’s all still usable. I swatched the colors and love them too – I’m hoping to see more Cynthia Rowley makeup at Birchbox!

(If you’re getting this box as a gift I recommend checking the palette to make sure it’s intact!)

Tanner Shimmer Necklace – Value $65

I love delicate gold necklaces, so most Gorjana pieces are a win for me, and this one is no exception – I love the subtle sparkles too!

This tea smells wonderful, and the packaging is gorgeous too – I’m excited to try it!

Verdict: This is a luxurious and indulgent box – exactly what I would expect from a Previous Metals box! I think it would make a great gift, and now that I have one, I’m going to use my Birchbox points to get one for someone on my holiday list!

What do you think of the Precious Metals box?

  1. I received my box today and one of my eyeshadows was broken, too! I sent an email to CS and am hoping to exchange for a new, intact palette.

    I also think the best item in the box is the pouch.

  2. I just got my box and I’m so disappointed in the headphones! It was the most wanted items too! They are way too big for my ears, not comfortable to wear, the sound is leaking and tinny. The rest of the box was ok and the makeup bag was definitely the winner. I used the promo code you mentioned and it worked, so I got 20% off, otherwise I’d be bummed…

  3. Bummer about the shadow. I hope mine arrives unbroken. I had decided to pass on this one, then I saw the video and decided I had to have it. I then decided to purchase a second one and divide it up for gifts. I used
    the Mobile20 and my points plus the mystery bonus, so over all a great deal. I can’t wait. I’ve watched the video 20 times already.

  4. Ohh so jealous that Birchbox sent you one for free! Still wouldn’t get one though, lol. There is simply nothing in it in my opinion that’s worth that much money. Seriously, a lash curler??? Whether it’s $3 it $20 it is still a lash curler. The dainty necklace looks like something I can get for $30 at kohls or something. And tea??? Come on… if this box was $50 I would maybe consider it but that is still a maybe.

  5. Thank you for this review! Might I suggest that you photograph the swatches too so we can see how pigmented they are? Thanks!
