  1. Hi Everyone,
    I am new to birchbox and I received an email today asking if I wanted to see a sneak peak of upcoming box. When I hit the link there were about 7 products lined up. I chose the curated box. Does this mean all the items will be in my box or just 5? All would be wonderful but that seems too many items.

    • Still no email here… first time ever that I haven’t gotten one.

  2. Has anyone else not gotten their email from birchbox yet?

  3. What the heck? I really want to try the Beso. It’s almost 7 and I haven’t heard anything. No email, nothing. I know I get the emails. This will be my second box so I should have the ability to pick now, right?
    As a fair-skinned blonde, I do NOT need another pink lipstick. Ugh.

    • if you get the coral color (not the hot pink although if you are fair skinned you should see the sneak peak video bc the pink looks great on the girl with blonde hair and light skin) i would be happy to trade, i requested beso as my sample choice as the coral was already sold out.

  4. Sample choices all sold out so I picked the curated box…I had no idea you PAY extra plus shipping on this box!!! Can I email them and tell them I don’t want it???
    I never get to pick a sample!!

    • I’m pretty sure you don’t pay extra or shipping… Every time I’ve gotten a curated box it’s just been the regular $10.

    • They started offering the option to buy the curated box in addition to the regular box–the extra cost is only if you add it as an extra, not pick it in lieu of your regular box. 🙂

  5. i just got my email. The curated box was still available as was the red and bright pink lip colors. The coral is no longer available. 11:01 PST.

    • I should have snagged the coral color while I had the chance yesterday. I thought red would be first to go though.

  6. I just got my email this morning and the coral was sold out, so I went with the curated box. Even thought (or possibly because) I’m a land-locked desert-dweller, I’m a sucker for anything “beachy.”

  7. I went with my sample choice pick! I chose the lip color in Bella. I love the color that the swatch above looks however, I know that it’s much brighter in person. Wish there could’ve been a more neutral color.

  8. I FINALLY got my email just now and nothing was sold out. I’m glad that Bella (the hot pink) seems to be unpopular because that’s exactly what I wanted!

  9. I get 2 boxes and chose coral for both. If I really like it I would prefer to have more, especially since I don’t know how many uses these little guys get.

  10. What time do these emails get sent? Does everyone get to choose their sample? This will be my third box and I have yet to get an email for a sample choice. Also have a Birchbox Man account and I have never seen one for this account either.

    • If you have unsubscribed from Birchbox emails, you won’t get the sample choice email, either. I learned that one the hard way!

      • Thank, Jenni! That is very strange! I just opted back in. Did it take a month before you were able to choose or did it send you an email right away?

    • I would contact birchbox. The first box you get, you’re not able to pick your sample choice however, going forward you are.

  11. I haven’t received my sample choice yet email and I verified that I was charged successfully, so I just sent them an email with my sample choice and email per instructions. Hopefully this will work. Last month they sent me the email after all the sample choices were sold out 🙁

  12. I got my emails yesterday evening and just went to pick colors/boxes and hour or two ago and all the options were still there for me – nothing was sold out yet.

  13. I got my email around 3:30 CT yesterday afternoon. All three colors were still available. I picked coral! Seems to be a popular color.

  14. Still no email… The only color I would wear is coral so I probably won’t even bother choosing if it’s sold out.

  15. I want all of them! I already used Tati’s code last month anyone have a tip for another code for my second account?

  16. i got the bella for both accounts so that i could give the other one to my friend she loves pink lipsticks so i think she will love this 🙂

  17. I was really tempted to choose the curated box this month, but I absolutely love the Bold box design. I picked the coral lipstick. I’m super excited for July’s Birchbox.

  18. It’s 7:13 CT and all the options were avalible. I picked Beso on 2 of my accounts and Coral on the account I got for a $1.00 with the Tati code. I will keep the Tati account till next month and then cancel for points. I am a light Carmel color and Bella wound have just been horrible with my skin tone, but I was tempted by the featured box. I also can’t use most of what’s in the featured box due to health issues. Anyway, I have down graded my upgrade box on one of my accounts, cause we are getting the Smashbox mascara for July and they just sent me the Miraness mascara for June. I can’t use either, cause I don’t have eyelashes, or hair for matter due to health issues, my question is- does anyone know yet what the other upgrade product is going to be? CS usuly tells me given my situation, but one of the new CS refused to tell me, which I found odd cause BB has the best CS around and they usuly help me out if I can’t use a sent product (i.e. no hair). I can honestly say BB does help and off corrections willingly when I need it, unlike Ispy of which sub to as well, so just wondering too if anyone encountered the new girl yet and if she refused to answer as well?

  19. That curated box was sooo tempting, but ultimately it came down to the coral and red lipsticks. The red is gorgeous, but I went for coral. Swatched show it is more of a vivid bright red…not sure I can pull it off, but it’s worth a shot!

  20. I have two Aces accounts and one non-Ace (yes subscription box addict here). I got one pink and one red today and hoping for the curated box tomorrow.

    • Oh DANG, I was just reading someone else’s post which reminded me that I sent a referral this month from my non-Ace account. Sure enough…got the email at 5:15.

  21. I picked hot pink Bella around 3pm Pacific time and all 3 colors including coral were still available.

  22. What the heck, I didn’t even get an email??

  23. I selected coral earlier today.

  24. I picked the beso (classic red), but it will go up on the swap board!!!

  25. 5:35pm in Houston, and I just picked the curated box on one account and the classic red one on the other account. It showed the coral as an option still.

  26. This was a tough one! I went for the red lip stain because I’m loving red lips lately, but I was also really tempted by the curated box.

  27. I just got the selection email on my 2nd account and all choices were still available @3pm PST. I picked coral on this account and the curated box on my other.

  28. I went for the red. (Coral was sold out at 3pm CT- I am hoping to get the pink in the curated box on my other account) I want to curated box SO BAD!!! I have been wanting to try the Balm’s new bronzer and it comes with Oribe- which is the most amazing hair line! Unfortunately- I get the beta upgrade so I can’t get it with my Ace account. I have another account that I just started last month with the Tati $1 promo that I kept alive- hopefully I will receive an email so I can get the speciality box tomorrow! Also, just received my second account box today- 8 products! YAY!! (no promo code card but oh well- I’m sure its just a percent off and I got a 20% with my ace account box)

    • Oo it says you get get the curated box as a one time purchase for only $10 if you are a subscriber and you will get both that AND the normal box!

      • Haha, once they sent me the curated box by accident with no extra charge (got my regular box, too).

    • I never showed coral as sold out. I didn’t get the e-mail on my second account until quite late and I chose coral and got confirmation.

      • why was it sold out for me 🙁 I know it said it was cause I think it was pretty early considered I had been emailed only 2 hours prior to checking. I swear it changes back and forth. Glad others got it!

        • E-mail them! They might have been restocking when you chose your sample. They always have extras and I bet they’ll give you one.

  29. I usually never do the sample choice because I prefer the full surprise. I am a complete girly girl and I go nuts for anything pink. Even though I rarely ever wear lip products I need hot pink lipstick in my life lol I picked Bella. I also added the pink sunglasses even though I have a billion sunglasses already…but they were pink!! I can’t wait to get this box. I am so relieved that Bella was still available. Since its included in the curated box I was a little worried it would sell out of the regular box.

  30. Got the coral! As always, thanks for the reminder! I will let my mom’s be left up to chance but I wanted at least one coral! I think the red and pink are gorgeous though!

  31. Got Venezia, was worried about it being sold out since it seems like everyone’s picking that one!

  32. I can’t do the curated box since I have the +$20 option (boo, that stinks). I was originally going to pick the hot pink, BUT BB sent me a bright pink Mirenesse as one of my full size items for the +$20 option in June. So I think I’m going to get the coral. I have plenty of red. I love a bold lip!

  33. Im going with the beach box!
