I’m a self-confessed beauty junkie. I love trying new eyeliners, mascaras, face washes, lip colors, nail polishes, you name it….really, it’s no secret. Which is why I think the idea of Birchbox is so genius. Yes, I know I’m a tad late to the game in trying this great idea, but when they offered to send me a curated box, I figured it was high time I gave it a go. (I was quite sure I’d like it though after Capitol Hill Style declared her love- that girl has the opinions you can trust).

So, if you’re unfamiliar, each month, Birchbox puts together  four to five handpicked deluxe beauty samples and delivers them to you for just $10. It’s an easy way to try out brands you may be unfamilar with, products that come with a higher price tag than you’re ok risking an impulse buy on at Sephora (whoops…guilty of doing that one too many times…) or just a little something you were unsure you’d love until you tried it.  Plus, with free shipping and brands like Smashbox, Kiehl’s, Jouer, Stila, Benefit, NARS and Oscar Blandi all on board, how can you not help but get excited about this monthly little treat?

Have you tried Birchbox? Thoughts?

p.s. you can also gift Birchbox to someone…I absolutely LOVE this idea for the upcoming holidays.
