June 2012 Birchbox...Eyeko, the Balm and random ziploc bag???

Happy Monday! I hope you all are having an awesome beginning of the week. Today was pretty exciting. I got 3 packages in the mail  wooo hooo!!! Don't you just love getting stuff in the mail? I do! I feel like it's my birthday haha...

The first one I'd like to share is my June Birchbox. Birchbox is a monthly subscription service where you pay $10 a month and you get 4-5 high-end deluxe beauty samples right at your door step. I've been a subscriber for a long time and I really like their service. They do have their ups and downs, but for the most part, they are a good company, and I always feel like I get my money's worth. 

This month's theme is "Jet Set".

Product List

Comodynes Self-Tanning Intensive and Uniform Color. These seems like a really good product. It promises a natural looking tan. Too bad I can't use it. I'm already tan. Oh, I know! I'll make my best friend. She always complains about her legs being pasty white (Hi Monica if you're reading this haha).

A full size Eyeko Fat Eye Stick. OMG! MY very first Eyeko product! It's a really popular UK brand and I was so excited to see in my Birchbox! I can't wait to play with this eye shadow pencil.

Likewise Facial Moisturizer Sun Protectant SPF50 Normal To Oily. It's a moisturizer, mattifier and sunblock all in one. Although it sounds like a great skin care product, I could really care less for another moisturizer. I still have other face creams from past Birchbox that I haven't tried. 

the Balm Cosmetics Stainiac in Beauty Queen. My first the Balm product, yay!!! It's a 2 in 1 cheek and lip stain. I know the color looks bloody red and scary, but it's actually quite sheer, and the fact that you can use it for blush and lip color is pretty awesome!

This sample of a Tili Bag is a great example of why Birchbox makes me laugh and say, "Are you serious?" haha. Birchbox likes to add random non-beauty related samples in the box. Really? It's a dang ziploc bag! I don't even like the pattern and the colors are ugly O_o. A pack of 9-12 bags retails for $8.49 to $9.49. I don't know anyone who would shed that much money on plastic. Would you? 

Birchbox  Man: Jon Varvatos cologne sample. I think it's pretty cool that Birchbox is starting a box for men called Birchbox Man. But I don't know any of my guy friends who would be interested in such service. All of them are into video games and sports and as far as I know, guys are very picky when it comes to stuff they put on their face. It's also more expensive than the regular Birchbox. For $20 a month, they will get samples of grooming products and life style goods. from top brands. 

Overall, I'm really happy with this month's Birchbox. The full size Eyeko eye pencil did it for me!

Did you get your Birchbox yet?

Go to Birchbox.com if you want to learn more about their service.


  1. its sooo good to have the eyeko eye pencil and TheBalm stainiac both in the same box!

  2. I wish they had that service in Portugal... I'd definitely get it! x

  3. very nice! I wish I could have one since I'm a makeup lover.. I love your package..lol

  4. That Eyeko Fat Eye Stick looks so pretty :) I wish all of these monthly subscription service was available to everyone, we don't have cool things like this in Norway :)

  5. i like that fat eye stick! i used to get birchbox but cancelled their subscription because i was getting their "downs". i would have laughed at the ziplock bag too!

  6. Ahh I'm so jealous you got an eyeko product! And stainiac looks promising. I hope I receive my birchbox soon! :P


  7. I think the Ziploc bag is meant to fir in with the "jet set" theme-its for putting all your travel essentials in one place or for airline regulations..at least I think that's what they were aiming for.

  8. Great loot!I would love to have these on my bag too!I definitely love their products!

  9. Great beauty box! I just subscribed to Glossy Box and hope to receive my first box here soon. Birchbox is certainly on my list to try.
