One of the most appealing parts of Birchbox and what I have never tried are the Limited Edition Boxes. Every so often they offer a special, limited edition box that is filled with full size products and are all centered around a theme. The boxes have an insane value and are usually in the $30-60 price range, which is great for the value of the box. The best part is that most of the time they include lifestyle products which is a great added bonus.
The last special edition box was Gym Bag Heroes and even though I don't go to the gym (LOL) I really wanted it. I was saving up my points for it but then decided against it, and eventually it sold out.
Well, I'm really glad I did wait because they just recently released the Everyday Glamour Special Limited Edition Box which is AMAZING. I wanted to spend my points on items that I didn't have already, or have been wanting to try and this box was perfect for that.
The Everyday Glamour box is valued at $197 but costs $48. Does it get better than that, because I don't think it does! The description of the box is so cute and I really love the lifestyle that Birchbox has created for their customers -- how they appeal to us and the language they use really sets the mood.
The idea of the box is to create a little bit of glam wherever you go, no matter if it's work, school, meetings, etc. They have provided us with timeless, easy to use products that will create a beautiful makeup look.
Every single thing in this box is something I will use and from brands that I've been wanting to try. The box took forever to get to my house and I was chomping at the bit to dive into the box and my goodness, it did not disappoint.
Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer in Life in Photographs: Everyone who purchased this box got one of two different shades. I received the lighter pink of the two glosses and I really like it. I've been heavily into lip gloss lately and I've been wanting to try the Smith & Cult one. It was really wonderful -- not too sheer but not too pigmented and it wasn't sticky at all. I would 100% buy the other colors.
Cargo TexasLash™ Mascara: I've been on a mascara kick lately and I've been wanting to try more Cargo products. I only have a blush and and eyeshadow that I received in my past Birchboxes and I've been really happy with them. This mascara has a nice, big wand that will surely give off voluminous and luscious lashes. I have this stored away for when I run out of my current mascaras but I can't wait to use it!
Caudalie Divine Oil - travel size: Like mascara and lip gloss, I've been enjoying oils lately. Whether it's for my face or my hair, I'm all about that oil life. Caudalie is a well known, expensive but lovely luxury brand and I'm always down to try more skincare. This oil can be used on your hair, face, or body and it's a nice size for being travel friendly. I haven't used it yet but I have high expectations and I'm sure it won't disappoint.
Ciaté Nail Polish in Paparazzi: Another luxury nail polish brand I've been wanting to try and I'm so happy I finally received it in a Birchbox. The Paparazzi shade is a deep wine, plum red and it looks gorgeous. Expect to see this in a Manicure Monday next week!
Jouer Powder Eyeshadow in Caramel: Ok I know I sound like a broken record but Jouer is another brand I've been dying to try. I've gotten small samples of their Moisture Tints in past Bircboxes but I've only heard good things. This eyeshadow is such a good size, and a great color for everyday. I'm super lazy with eyeshadow even though I have so many palettes but sometimes in the morning, I don't want to apply it because it takes too long. This is a beige/brown shimmery shade that is perfect for throwing on the lid in a quick, 10 minute makeup routine. It's super soft and pigmented and perfect!
Michael Todd Concentrated C Antioxidant Moisturizing Serum: Michael Todd is one of my favorite skincare brands. I haven't found anything from this brand that I don't like. I was in need of a new serum since my other one(review coming soon) ran out. That was a major selling point of this box and I really like it so far. My skin is acting out right now so I need to be careful with what I put on it but so far, this serum feels great. It's super moisturizing and feels great on the skin.
NER:D Skincare Repair Master Mask: I will never say no to a sheet mask! I have another mask from NERD Skincare that I haven't used yet but this is supposed to help heal damaged skin. I may have to try it soon because like I said, my skin is acting out.
Stephanie Johnson Tinseltown Gunmetal Medium Flat Pouch: Like sheet masks, I could never have too many makeup pouches. I have already swapped this with the makeup bag I was using and it's so precious. It's glamorous, tiny, sparkly, and so girly. I love it!
This box was an insane value and I'm so happy with every single item I received. If I didn't have points, I probably still would've spent my own money on this Limited Edition Boxes and now I may be hooked on the LE Boxes. They're too cute and too good of a value to pass up!
Did you get the Everyday Glamour box? What did you think?
