Make-up, shmake-up...December Birchbox, it is!

Any "girly" girl knows that makeup is part of the bathroom arsenal, but who can find time to try out everything that is available?  If you're anything like me, trying everything is just not possible and sticking to the tried and true is the way to go.

BUT now that problem has been alleviated courtesy of Birchbox!  Now before I get too far, I am not being paid to endorse, I am not showcasing them because I might get something from the company and all things I say are my own opinions.

For those who are unaware of this company, it is an online based subscription service that sends out sample sizes of makeup products.  For a small amount ($10/month OR $110/year), you can gain access to various products to try out.  Should you decide you enjoy the product, going back to the Birchbox website will give you added convenience of buying the full-size product.

I first found out about this service through Youtube (yes, my go-to guru site).  I immediately signed up for my first box and it arrived this past week.  I couldn't wait to open it up and I was not disappointed.  Packaging was well-done, products were new to try, and I was eager to show it off.

With the holiday season in full swing, this makes for a lovely gift for your best friend, your sister, your mother, or whomever else you can think of.  So take a look at what I got and judge for yourself!

  1. I know how excited you must feel, because I just received my first Birchbox as well. Which is your favorite of the samples so far?

    I checked out your first youtube video as well- I think you did great- I've also been debating wether or not to start making videos.

    Keep on the great blogging- I'm glad I stumbled upon your blog.

  2. PS. you can also check out what I thought of the December birchbox here:

  3. Love all the products you got from Birchbox! Really wish they offered the service internationally otherwise I would be able to get it too! Checked your first youtube video and love it!! My favorite product has to be the stila lip glaze as I am dying to try out some of their products!

  5. @Mary Manuel--thanks for your comment! of course I don't mind if you follow--the more the merrier! =) And I did not get a yearly subscription yet. I just started the service and wanted to test it out--so I am thinking of switching since it's such a great deal! =)
