Got my first Birchbox today! Have you heard about this? For $10/month, they will send you samples of hair/makeup/fragrance/beauty products based on your personal profile. I haven’t tried anything yet, but I’m excited to.
The box itself is very cute, and you can (of course) buy full-sized products on their website if you like anything. I do wish you could tailor it a little more to your preferences. For instance, I’m a skincare consultant and have PLENTY of products, so I really don’t need those! I also don’t wear fragrance, and the minimum you can get is 4x/year. I’m a big makeup junkie so I’d like to get more of that … except primers, what is the deal with those? I have at least three or four sample-size primers on my sink right now.
BUT I’m willing to ride it out a few more months to see if I come across any gems. In the mean time, I’m going to post about a few of my favorite makeup items – hard-fought finds with billions of drugstore rejects in the wake of each! Think of it as kind of an “Oprah’s Favorite Things” … minus the Oprah.
