If you like makeup and presents

If any of you are like me in any of these ways:


  • loves presents
  • loves packages in the mail
  • admires classy presentation of said presents and packages
  • likes using nice beauty products
  • but spends almost zero time researching them so doesn't know what to buy
  • appreciates advice about makeup application or hair or skin care
  • loves to try new products, as in, gets really really bored using the same things all the time
  • likes luxurious stuff
  • likes to feel pretty
  • would just as soon other people pick out cosmetics/beauty products for you
  • likes to try something out before committing large amounts of money

THEN, perhaps you would enjoy this beauty product subscription service I've found. It is in my top 5 of favorite things. I love it mucho mucho.

It's called Birchbox (birchbox.com). You sign up for however many months you want, and for $10/month, they send a darling little box full of high-end beauty samples. Sometimes you can use a sample 4 or 5 times, sometimes it will last months and months (no kidding). It is seriously great. I got a box today, and that's why it's on my mind. It had a NARS highlighter, BareMinerals mascara, a moisturizer sample, a face exfoliator, and some dark chocolate. All awesome. In months past, I've discovered some new products that I love (mostly hair care products or moisturizers are the things I'm most likely to purchase after trying). It is seriously fun for my bathroom cabinet/makeup bag to get a recharge every month with high-end stuff I would never otherwise try.

This sounds like I'm trying to sell you something. Totally not, I get nothing. I'm not even linking to the website so as to let you know I will receive nothing if you sign up. Just wanted to share what I'm totally loving right now and what is fantastically great at adding sunshine to my life. Love it.

that's a good idea, do you fill out a questionnaire about stuff you'd be interested in or is it completely random?
