June Birchbox Review
I’m a jetsetter girl at heart, so I was thrilled to discover that Birchbox dropped its geriatric gig and redeemed itself with a first class upgrade this month.
At first opening of the box, we are given a little gift for the man in our life as a reminder that Birchbox is now offering a male version of their monthly service. It is not ironic that I know a lot of male flight attendants who would love just such a service.
Here is my full spread: Comodynes self-tanning towels, Masqueology pore minimizing mask, stila bronzer, Stainiac lip and cheek stain, John Varvatos cologne for my man, and a glorified baggie from tili.
My favorite product is the Stainiac lip & cheek stain, although I’ve only worn it on my lips and not on my cheeks. Because why is it weird to wear a lip gloss on your cheeks? I tried to get a picture of my puckered lips wearing the gloss, but I couldn’t get any self-photos that didn’t look like I was cougar-ing it up for a MySpace profile. You’ll just have to trust me that the product is nice.
I can’t decide if I like this bronzer as much as I am mesmerized by the little spirally globs floating around in the tube. The product is great, actually, but it’s maybe a little bronzier than my pale face is accustomed to. I’ve yet to bravely wear it outside of the home.
So now I have to ask Birchbox, What’s up with the glorified baggie? Is it to flaunt your stylishness as you send your travel size liquid toiletries through the airport security screening? Except that your toiletries must be in a clear plastic bag for security screening, so please spare the 200 anxious travelers lined up behind you and save this bag for another purpose.
How about you? Do you Birchbox or similar? How do you feel about your items this month?
