This month I received my first (and last) Birchbox. I didn't cancel my subscription because I'm unhappy with the contents but because I'm trying to save money. It was nice to get just one and see what it's like but to be honest, I don't know if I'll ever renew my subscription. Although it is exciting to get a little "surprise" box in the mail, I think I'd rather just spend $10 on makeup that I know I'm definitely going to use.
At first, the item I was the most interested in was the eye liner... until I realized it's GREEN. I'll probably just be trying out the lip/cheek tint and the various lotions. The earbuds will come in handy as a backup in case my current pair breaks. Also, I'm not big on perfume because my sense of smell is so bad that anytime I smell it on someone is when they've used WAY too much... so I probably won't be using that.
Overall, I'm not disappointed with this month's Birchbox, I've just come to the realization that it's not for me. I'm far too picky when it comes to beauty products.
What about you guys? Do any of you subscribe to Birchbox? If so, what are some of your favorite past Birchbox items?
