The Birchbox December 2014 Sample Choice items have been revealed:

Sample Choice

Each Birchbox subscriber can pick from one of the following samples for their December box:

Manna Kadar Lip Locked in Lucky

Mirenesse Secret Weapon iCurl 24 Hour Mascara

w3LL People Bio Brightener Stick

(FYI – photo collage is of full size products, items will be sample sized).

If you are new to Sample Choice, here is a quick explanation from Birchbox:

If you’re a new subscriber or haven’t heard of Sample Choice, here’s a quick rundown: Each month we give our members the option to choose one sample for their box. All members will receive an email November 25th (Aces and Early Access) or November 26th (everyone else) with the option to choose one of the samples described in this video. Act fast, because supplies are limited! If you don’t choose or prefer to be surprised, don’t worry! We’ll send you a box suited to your Beauty Profile.


There are also new Birchbox Plus options this month:

Necklace options

These necklaces are $25 each to add to your box, and they normally retail for $48.

What sample are you thinking of picking this month? I’m going with the W3LL People highlighter I think, and I may do an add-on necklace this month too!

  1. My Husband and I both decided to try Birch Box. I thought we would both be starting with a January box, but I received mine today and I got the December box. Before ordering I checked out online reviews of previous boxes, including December. I am more impressed with the subscription after seeing it in person. Even though I saw these products online and was not surprised with them, they are things I would like to try. I got the Eye liner and the bio brightener stick. I am satisfied with the sizes of the samples too.

  2. Did anyone see December’s Guest Editor box, it’s amazing!

  3. Eye liner or Mascara for me, I haven’t been impressed with the Highlighters I have been getting from Birchbox or Ipsy.

    Does Birchbox do good sales on Full sized Products for the Black Friday shopping Frenzy?

  4. Thanks Sneaky Burrito on the tip, I just got the points added!

    This month I’m meh on the samples, but I prefer skin or hair stuff over makeup. I’ve gotten way too many mascaras the last two months, don’t do eyeliner nor care for the highlighter so I hope I can get the lip gloss.

    I love birchbox though and want to get a second sub but I thought I’d wait to see if there’s any good deals Black Friday or cyber Monday.

  5. I’m hoping for the mascara! I’ve only received one mascara in the three months I’ve been signed up with both Ipsy and Birchbox…and I’ve just about worn that out! LOL I use mascara everyday on these blonde lashes of mine, so I definitely welcome more.

  6. I want to add a second sub and refer myself. How do I sign up for the second account without getting charged for November’s box? I want my main account to get early sample choice.

    • I don’t think you can do that. I referred myself last week for a second account but I’m getting a November box on the second account (which I knew would happen, so I’m OK with it).

      • November was really awesome so it might be worth it. I suppose I could email CS saying my friend sent me this link and I want to sign up but I just want to start with December.

  7. In the video everything is sample size minus the mascara and I really could not tell about the eye liner but I think it is.

    I would like the mascara or the rose gold eye liner. I missed the mascara last month but the eye liner looks so pretty and really different. I think it would look pretty with my eyes.

    I have enough lip products, highlighters, etc and I have enough mascara and eye liner too but I am always into testing new mascara’s and colored liners. The mascara packaging is cute and unique.

    The reviews seem to be mixed on the items on birchbox.

    I don’t choose samples though because I usually don’t receive my choice and get annoyed with that. If there is something that I just have to have, I will choose and then cross my fingers.

  8. I’m not that excited about the sample choices this month. I don’t really use eyeliners, just got the mascara in November’s box. I’ll probably end up picking the lipgloss if I can. I think the necklaces are very pretty, just not for me since I’m allergic to nickel 🙁

  9. I got the mascara in the curated box for Nov and it is fantastic. The shape of the brush really does curl!

  10. I love all of the sample choices this month! Unfortunately, I don’t think the highlighter will work well for my paper-white skin, but I’m still having such a hard time choosing between the other three. BB is killing it this month! 🙂

    • I’m feeling the same way about the highlighter (most highlighters in boxes have been too dark for me to use — like the same color as my skin or darker). But, I am trying to decide on 2 of the other 3 (I have two subs right now).

  11. Love Birchbox and how they keep the excitement throughout the month! I picked the mint and green necklace as an upgrade. Then the samples for me are just ok. May go for a curated box if they have one or just a total surprise.

  12. Argh…I’m just 10 points away from being an Ace after I review my items for this month! I can’t wait….I do receive the choice email, but I always seem to be to busy to catch it in time to make a selection before everything is gone. Although, I have enjoyed my last few birch boxes that they have chosen for me :).

    • If you’re on a month-to-month subscription, cancel and resubscribe today with a 100 point code (BBRED100 works until the end of the month). You’ll still get the sample choice e-mail and it’ll give you 110 points, so you’ll be an Ace and then some!

      • Do you lose the points you have if you cancel and re subscribe? That sounds great but I’m almost at $20 credit.

        • Nope, you don’t lose anything.

          The key to getting it to work is to cancel, then resubscribe immediately. Do it on a date after your box has shipped but before the PYS e-mail comes out.

          • But then wouldn’t you get two November boxes that way??

          • Nope. As long as you cancel after your box has shipped, you won’t get another box for the same account for that month. (You will be charged for next month at the time you resubscribe, though.)

            I’ve been doing this for 3-4 months now…

      • Thank you!! It worked 🙂

  13. Excited to finally be an Aces member this month so I can hopefully choose any item I want, the last few months they’ve been sold out of choices before I could choose. I’m going to try to the mascara, I know this is been in several boxes but I still have yet to try it! Thanks for sharing Liz!

    • I really like that mascara – hopefully you will too! 🙂

  14. Really excited about the rose-gold eyeliner! When Birchbox’s debuted the new Cynthia Rowley items last month one of the added eyeliners was rose gold. I never considered one before, but that one intrigued me! So glad I can experience a rose-gold eyeliner now!

  15. If I choose to add a necklace does the payment come out when I select it or does it come out on the first with my subscription? Also do we get BB points for add ons?

    • I believe the payment comes out at or around the time as your box. And yes, you definitely get BB points. A couple of months back there was a choice of two items, a bracelet and a candle, and if you bought both you actually got double points. Haven’t seen anything about that on this one, however.

  16. I added 2 necklaces, haha. Love the moonstone mint necklace and the crystal necklace as well. I hope they have a guest curator box like they have had because I love those boxes! Otherwise I’m kinda meh about the sample choices. Loving Birchbox lately though! Great values and themes for their boxes.

    • I added the crystal and amethyst necklaces – amethyst is my birthstone, and I wear tons of purple, which I suspect is a remnant of my childhood Donny Osmond obsession. 😉

  17. Liz –
    Hi! Sorry this is off topic, but I heard yesterday about the Wantable offer, tried to sign up for the newsletter, and it didn’t seem to take. Could you forward it to me? Thanks!

  18. Oooohhh…those necklaces are gorgeous!

  19. I also plan to pick the W3LL highlighter since I love that brand and I need a highlighter. I added on the amethyst necklace!

  20. Thanks Liz! Do you know when we get to pick?

    • 25th or 26th, depending on your Aces status. The full explanation is right there, just above the pictures of the necklaces.

      • I obviously can’t read, thank you! I got confused because I thought I got something from Birchbox saying you don’t need an email, and to just click a link.
