My December Birchbox just arrived and I wanted to share what I got this month with you. The sample choice consisted of three shade options for a Coastal Scents eye shadow duo. We also knew that every box would could with a $10 promo code. Let's see what else was included.
Kate Spade Walk On Air | Full-size $33-$115
Ok, so you know I don't wear perfume. Buy hey, at least it's a recognizable brand so it shouldn't be hard to swap. This sample is worth $1.01.
Lord & Berry Twistick | Full-size $31
A full-size lipstick... nice! I also really like the deep berry shade I got called Shut Up. I will definitely be using this one. Since it's full-size, this is worth $31.
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid | Full-size $47
This is actually a product I've sample before (I think from Sephora). I didn't love it but didn't hate it, so I will end up using this eventually. This sample is worth $2.82.
Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum - Fine to Medium | Full-size $45-60
I've had good experiences with hair oils in the past so I'm really looking forward to trying this one out. The bottle did leak some product in transit, but I was compensated 50 points to make up for it, so not a big deal. This sample is worth $10.52.
Coastal Scents styleEYES Eyeshadow Palette - formalEYEs | Full-size $16
No surprise here. This is the sample shade I chose. I really love that they combined a matte shade with a shimmery shade. The packaging is a bit flimsy so I'll probably pop out the pans and put them in a magnetic palette. The full-size listing didn't say how big the shadow pans were, but these are pretty small so I'm going to assume these are half-size. Based on that assumption, this sample is worth $2.00.
I think this is one of the best boxes I've received in the past year. The only product I won't use is the perfume, but the other samples - especially the full-size lipstick - definitely makes up for it. The total sample value of this box is $47.35 which is way more than the $14.95 price. Check Birchbox out here if if you want to find out more.
