The whole kit and caboodle
The card that tells you what is in everything.
The other side of the card
The first product: My Prime Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer. On the birchbox site, they have 2oz listed for $68. This size is .3 oz, which comes to (I think) $10. There is no way I would pay $10 for this. Ever. It wasn't too awful. It didn't have any scent to it. It did make me break out though, so I don't know if it works because I'm not going to use any more of it. This will be given away.
This is the Fusion Beauty mascara. I love new mascaras - I could collect them. Full size is $24, this trial size is probably supposed to be $10 (most trial size mascaras are about that); I don't count this as worth anything though since it is unusable.
Take a look at how great my eyelashes look! It wasn't because of the mascara I was sent, though. This is because of benefit's They're Real! mascara. The mascara I was sent was literally dried up. Not good. Worthless.
I literally get perfume samples like this for free from sephora. I don't know what the value is supposed to be, but I'm guessing they weren't pegging it at free though. That's what I'm pegging it at.
Oh, and I received a chocolate square from Ghirardelli. Big whoop. It was broken and melted, and was a big mess.
A supposed value of $26 for $10. But wait, the mascara didn't work! So we're down to $16 for $10. I have literally bought better makeup lots off of ebay for less money. Seriously. After scrolling through their facebook page, it sounds as if a lot of people are pretty unhappy with birchbox, and a lot of people are unsubscribing. (I did sign up with Lip Factory and will give you an update on that at a later point.)
So, getting ready for the red carpet? Not with pretty much anything in this box. I give one chance to companies to get my money, and after this, I'm glad I stuck with Beauty Army (referral link) (read that review here). I cancelled birchbox today after reviewing my products. If you're still interested, sign up through my referral link or GTS. But, don't say that I didn't warn you!
