Birchbox Review


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?

  1. Oh no, green eyeliner? Yikes! I got a very similar box, but I got the black eyeliner and love it! I really like the lip and cheek tint too. it's very natural. I am totally clueless about makeup shopping. I subscribe because it lets me in on really cool beauty items that I like, but would have never heard about otherwise.

    1. Very true. Maybe I'll try the green to see if I like how it goes on... if I do, I might buy it in black. I've been looking for a good portable eyeliner. I use MAC's fluidline at the moment with a thin brush and it's too much of a pain to carry it with me.

  2. I don't think I'll be interested in this box. It seems to random. Something a bit more specific and you'll have a higher chance of enjoying the contents! But geez green eyeliner? That's a little too random. Totally agree with you on perfumes! I only notice if it's super strong/bad haha

    1. I agree! Something a bit more specific would be way better.

  3. Oh, so that's what Birchbox is! I see a lot of bloggers subscribe to it and I always wondered what the big deal is! I don't have a great sense of smell either! -Jessica

    1. I saw it on other people's blogs too! I might look for something similar but a bit more specific. I think it would be awesome if someone offered a box like this full of craft supplies!

  4. I got purple eyeliner in mine -- still not sure how I feel about it. The Stainiac lip/cheek tint is probably one of my favorite products of all time. I'm so glad I got to sample it through Birchbox; it was just the kind of product I was looking for to get that natural, yet polished, look.
