For those of you that do not know what birchbox is I will explain. It is a monthly subcription box that is mailed to you. It's filled with wonderful beauty samples. If you are anything like me this is a great introduction to new things. I'm not willing to go shell out very much for a product I know nothing about. This is a great way to try new things to find out if you think buying the full size is worth it or not. You can get a subcription for $10/month and if you sign up for an extended period (6 or 12 months subs) I believe you are offered a discount. If you'd like to try it please click here
Last product in my box was this lip product. It's from theBalm Cosmetics and it's called Stainiac. My color was called Beauty Queen. I did not like the feel of this product when I put it on my lips and the apperance on my lips was more like a "kool-aid" look rather than a lip tint. For myself this was not a good product but it might work differently for others. Full size on birchbox.com is $17 (amazon.com $12.50).
Overall I was not disappointed in the samples that I recieved in my October box. It introduced me to new hair, lip and facial products. These things are products that I never would have tried on my own. I also like that birchbox provides a sample that is large enough to really "test" the product.
I'm a little behind with my birchbox reviews so you'll be seeing another one in the next week or so on my November box that I recieved. Lets just say the "extra" was really tastey in Novembers box.
