GlossyBox/Birchbox
Not sure if this is the right place for this discussion, but as it is in relation to new beauty products.....

Are there any members here of GlossyBox? (or Birchbox in the USA). This specific company has just started up in the UK (I think they are in other parts of europe as well), and they offer a monthly subscription where they will send you a box of 5 new high-end beauty products for you to try...

From the website:

Quote:
If you want to regularly receive luxury product miniatures from top brands that fit your care and styling habits, then simply register on our website. The unique appeal of GlossyBox is that as a recipient of the box you can create your own personal beauty profile on our site. This information will help us to choose the right products to fit your needs and tastes.

The GlossyBox will be sent out monthly. In addition to high-end luxury product miniatures, the box contains product information, application notes and tips and tricks about beauty and style. Our GlossyBlog publishes interesting features on a regular basis.



Our product selection is original and innovative. You can try them out in the comfort of your own home. GlossyBox enables you to try out the luxury product miniatures in your own time without the annoying interruption of sales pitches. If a product has caught your attention you can easily learn more about if from our website. If you would like to buy the product, we can direct you to an online supplier. You can also choose to provide us with product feedback, which enables us to improve and adjust the content of your next box to better suit your individual needs. You receive a GlossyDot for each completed feedback sheet. With 20 GlossyDots the next box is free.

Any reviews of the products?

Really wish it didn't have the lipstick in as I already have it but for those who do order it, the lipstick is really good-such a bright red I usually wear it blotted off a bit for daytime though.
Such a good idea though, next month maybe

A full sized NARS Illuminator? That is very impressive. I've signed up for June's box! Hoping the next box will be just as good

Do we have any members here who are subscribed to Brichbox? Have they been consistent with the brand/quality of products?

I'm subscribed to Birchbox but I've only received one so far, it was a bit hit and miss which is to be expected I think. But I liked about half of the items and my favourite thing about it is the surprise! Not sure how long I'll keep the subscription for though.

A lot of people were disappointed with this month's GlossyBox here in the UK.
I don't blame them lol. Take a look at the products people in Germany received in their June box:
