Confession. I am a makeup junkie. You wouldn’t know it, because I don’t wear a ton, but I love makeup. LOVE. IT. I would buy new products daily if the budget allowed.

I wish this was my vanity.



No seriously. The table, the lights, and all of those products. I want!

Well, to help feed my obsession, Jenn gave me a subscription to Birchbox for Christmas. She knows how much I love to try out new products- I’m a sucker for samples- so this was the perfect gift!

I hadn’t heard of Birchbox, but it is an online beauty store similar to Sephora’s site. It has all of the brands of skin care, makeup, hair products, etc. I get one box per month filled with 4-5 samples of products picked especially for me based on the questions I answered when I did my profile. And, the website is also full of articles and how-to videos.

My first box came in the mail last week. It had five new-to-me products and I’ve had fun trying them! A few of the samples included this time: dry shampoo {I’ve been a huge fan for a while, but this was a brand I hadn’t tried}, navy eye liner, and a great pink lip gloss! Love it.

I’ll let you know when I find any “keepers” that I buy and add to my {still organized} makeup drawer!

So, if you’re looking to try some new stuff without having to really commit, or looking for a fun, unique gift… Birchbox is your answer!
