September 2011 Birchbox Review
So I finally received my much anticipated Birchbox for September a couple of days ago. I didn't really know what to expect, but after reading some disappointing reviews online, I tried not to get my hopes up. This box included 4 samples and a couple extra items thrown in. I got:
Resilient Blinc Mascara
Girly Harvey Prince Prefume
Adventurous Incoco Nail Polish Applique (leopard print)
Practical Jouer Lip Enhancer
Extra Lash Card and Birchbox friendship bracelet were the two extras.
Overall, I wish the samples were a little bigger. I know they're just samples, but I feel like you can get better sized trial products from Sephora. I have to say, the packaging is really cute and the shipping was really fast. I think I got my box within a couple of days of receiving my shipping confirmation email.
I pretty much like everything I got and I'll probably give each item a try. I've tried the Jouer Lip Enhancer and it's quite nice, but not something I would buy full-sized. I'm excited to try the nail polish strips and the blinc mascara. Just from the description alone, I know I'm not too crazy about the perfume, but I might give it a try anyway.
For this being my first Birchbox, I'm not too impressed, but I wasn't disappointed either. I think I will continue my subscription for another month and hopefully the next box will be more promising. Does anyone else have a Birchbox subscription? Do you think it's worth the money?
