"March Madness" Birchbox: Box Opening! :)

Even if you are not into Sports, I am sure that you hear the chatter surrounding the games. Birchbox is getting "into the game" with this box full of beauty "all stars" and up-and-coming "rookies", lol! There is a competitive spirit on the Birchbox facebook page this month, too! They will be posting beauty face-offs: eg., liquid vs. gel liner, etc. So, be sure to log in and join the fun. Even if you are not into the competition, there are prizes to be won! As always, there is an element of "fun" with Birchbox! :)

What is the Birchbox monthly box?
Have you not heard of Birchbox, or would you just like to find out more? Well then here is the scoop if you would like a subscription for yourself: For only $10.00 per month, you get deluxe high-end beauty and lifestyle product samples delivered right to your door. Each box contains about 4-5 samples plus a small lifestyle extra or two. The boxes are so cute and incredibly fun! It is like getting a little present in your mailbox each month. :) With a subscription, you get your fabulous Birchbox and full access to the Birchbox website (with tips, tutorials, articles, videos, product info, and shopping)! Review your Birchbox items and earn points on the Birchbox website! Plus, if you refer friends, you can earn points for that, too.

So, let's find out what is inside this month's March Madness Birchbox!!!

I am so excited about the items inside this month's box! I just love it when my Birchbox arrives and the items inside are things that I literally have on my list to buy because I am out! I literally just ran out of makeup remover and dry shampoo. So, I am thrilled to find those items inside. Plus, I get to explore some new brands!

Inside the Box:
  • Caldrea | Body Lotion in 3 Scents: Coconut Fig, Tea Olive Lime, and Aloe, Water, Apricot (3 foil sample packets, full size cost: $22): I wish these samples were larger! While I appreciate trying a new brand, I really slather on body lotion. So, a little foil sample packet is only enough for like one arm, lol! These are going to be tossed right into my travel bag for my next trip. I opened up Coconut Fig right away. I couldn't resist! I adore the scent of fig. Yum!!!  
  • MAKE | Dual Phase Eye Makeup Remover (sample size: 1 fl oz, full size cost: $18): OMG!!! I adore MAKE's Cosmetics!!! Actually, I am currently working with the brand's PR for a review of their recent collection (so, stay tuned! That review is coming next week!) Whoo-hoo for this generous deluxe sample! This eye makeup remover should last me awhile!!! Yay! For those of you who are not familiar with MAKE, they are from the same makeup manufacturer as NARS Cosmetics and they are known for their amazing pigments! Plus, a portion of all sales go to benefit the "We See Beauty" foundation that supports women! More of all of this coming soon with my MAKE review. :)
  • MAKE | Lipstick in Putty (tiny little sample bullet, cute! full sized cost: $18): MAKE's lipsticks are amazingly pigmented and long-wearing. So, I am happy to get this cute little sample. I am really in love with this brand! 
  • Serge Normant | Meta Revive Dry Shampoo (sample size: 2 oz, full sized cost: $25): Yay!!! As I mentioned, I just ran out of dry shampoo. So, I am thrilled about this very generous sample. I almost prefer a travel sized dry shampoo as you can toss it in your purse to freshen on-the-go. I have never tried this brand! So far, I really like the scent of this! I use dry shampoo every other day. So, I am very excited to get this sample!!! You can get both freshening and volume with dry shampoo! Love!!!
  • Birchbox Extra | Madewell for Birchbox Emery Board (full sized!): I can always use an emery board! Plus, I like that they included a plastic sleeve for it. Otherwise everything in my purse gets scratched. The floral print on the emery board is patterned from Madewell's Spring Collection. :)

My fellow Birchboxers, what do you think of this month's box? Are you excited about MAKE Cosmetics, too? I would love to hear what you got in your box and how you like it! :)

@Chantel-I am so excited that I got this remover in my Birchbox! :)

Amanda said...

You BB ROCKS this month! It look like you got the Benefit Concealer, too! I want to trade my BB with yours! =P

Unknown said...

@Amanda-It was a great box this month! No, I didn't get the Benefit concealer, that was a coupon. However, darn, I realize that I threw it away! They put so much cardboard in the box that it is hard to figure out what to hang on to.

The only similarity in my box is the nail file - everything else is 100% different. I did get a MAKE e/s in the color Cement which looks interesting but not exciting.

I totally want to feel like I'm getting a present every month....maybe it will come at "that time of the month" to cheer me up. I like the mini bullet lipstick.

Unknown said...

@Marcia-I am always amazed at how many different boxes they release! We always seem to get something different!

@RockPaperBeauty-LOL! You are too funny! :)

Brooke @ Blushing Noir said...

Yours was so much better than mine. I'm actually angry about how awful mine was lol I've been with Birchbox a LONG time and am considering packing up my cookies and going home.

Unknown said...

@BlushingNoir-Oh no Brooke! Sorry to hear that you had a dissapointing box. Especially since you are a long term subscriber!
