June 2014 Birchbox Review

Birchbox is a monthly subscription box featuring beauty and lifestyle samples. It is $10 a month and you receive 4-6 samples, deluxe sames, and sometimes full size products. Their point system is really good, and you can end up getting a lot of full size products for free. You can join here, so we both get points: 

I received my Birchbox a while ago, but I am just getting around to reviewing it because life got a little crazy!

And NO, I did NOT get the new Benefit eyeliner to review... Birchbox was just really mean and sent out an "info card" to some subscribers and not others, so when I opened the box I saw the card and thought I got the eyeliner to review so I was really excited... but alas, no eyeliner in the box, and when I contacted BB thinking it was a mistake and they just forgot to put the eyeliner in there... nope... it was just an info card. Well, thanks a lot for nothing. It was like seeing the Golden Ticket and then realizing it was a fake! Bah!

Each Birchbox comes with a card detailing the products you received.
