DA…DA..wa wa wa…?
At least that was the noise I heard in my head as I received my September 2011 Birchbox. For a 1-Year Anniversary piece…it was…well…i’ll let you decide.
Word around the blogosphere for this particular Birchbox was that it was a major disappointment to all involved. Given that the Birchbox before that one ended up getting entirely tossed out/given away it didn’t bode well for my continued BB subscription. So I was a bit more hesitant than I normally would have been when I opened my box last night (after getting home from a grueling 6 hour LSAT class.) Would it contain joy or sorrow?
Bits of both, really.
I’ve totally been procrastinating posting because I knew I was going to get this. Just as I was giving up and finishing a post for something else, it arrived in the mail! The much-hyped Cynthia Rowley July Birchbox.
Aah! So I took my own advice and signed up for a Birchbox account. It shipped and I received it in 2 days, though Birchbox warns that shipping to the west coast can take up to 10 days. Word around the beauty block was that this box came with a full size Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Highlight or Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Brighten (valued alone at $29.50!) and I am here to confirm that it is true! But before I get to that, let’s take a trip down the fortuitous lane that was the receipt of my first Birchbox!
In case you missed it, i’ve already done a post on getting my eyelashes done in “flares.” You can read it here. This post will be for the somewhat different and more costly experience of having eyelash extensions done. I put quite a bit of information on the post with the flares but i’ll go into a little more detail before my review which you can read after the jump.
I gave myself a week of time to “experience” the lashes before posting this review. It also gave me a good basis for the “Results.” portion. I hope you enjoy~
