Lemme make one thing clear, this is in no way an affiliate or marketing post and Birchbox has no idea I am writing this post. You know, I wish they did, haha!! That would simply mean some compensation in the mail in terms of makeup goodies! LOL!!
So what is today’s post all about?? Well, today I am sharing my experience with Birchbox and my thoughts on these makeup samples that I received for well over a year when I tried out Birchbox back in 2015-2016.
I heard about Birchbox from some of the blogger divas that I follow and thought to myself, why not give it a try?! Mind you, I am in no way as fancy as these diva bloggers and honestly hardly wear makeup on a daily basis. But the idea of getting a cute box in the mail every month for $10 a month sounded so chic to me that I jumped on the bandwagon. BUT what I forgot was that I wasn’t much of a makeup person to begin with and hence these boxes would be fun to receive but majority of the products would sit and collect dust – more of this below.
I started to receive my boxes and while I loved getting all these girly things in the mail, a lot of them were too expensive to buy when it came to full size products (available only on their website), and that too for not so famous name brands. You can see more on the brands they carry here: Brands.
Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved some of the products I received and even bought their full size items but these mostly included either fragrances, lip sticks and eyeshadow pallets. What completely went to waste was all those hair care samples coz I’m not a blow dry, straighten or curl-it-up kinda girl, I am more of a let this beauty air-dry kinda girl!!
So who is Birchbox for?!
If you love trying new makeup and hair care products and playing dress up, go ahead and sign up for Birchbox without a second thought! It’s $10 put to good use as you get a lot of good stuff and the size of the products makes it travel friendly too!! It’s also for all those women who want to pamper themselves.
In case you read my blog and give it a try, do let me know 🙂
