It’s a given that we love finding new products here in the Birchbox office. But we’re particularly excited for this month’s lineup of beauty launches—from a debut line of pretty, matte lipsticks from BITE Beauty, to Anastasia’s new must-have brow kit, and Beauty Protector’s detangling spray that gets rid of all our knots, there’s something for everyone.
Don’t miss February 2013’s hottest new beauty launches.
It’s red carpet awards season! Take a cue from Hollywood and find out how to: primp like a star at home.
One of my biggest gripes during the winter is, without a doubt, terribly chapped lips. Even if I do every at-home remedy—use a sugar scrub, exfoliate with a toothbrush—I can’t seem to keep my lips soft, supple, and generally not painfully cracked. It’s something that I’ve been struggling with for as long as I can remember—which is why I was pretty desperate to try anything that friends and colleagues claimed actually worked. (I am not ashamed to say that I have tried Waxelene, Vaseline, and all other leen-alternatives.)
Enter a product that I never would have thought would do the trick: Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips. Stay with me, because I know you just saw the word nipple and are either wholly concerned or were sold immediately (right, Moms?). But for those of you who aren’t as familiar with the concept of nipple balm, let me have the distinct pleasure of introducing you to this cult favorite product of British makeup artists. (And even better? Some of you will receive this product in your February Birchbox!)
IT’S HERE! Birchbox February 2013 Sneak Peek
Around this time of year, we all turn into armchair commenters—after all, what are awards shows but a fun excuse to survey and dissect exciting beauty and fashion looks? That’s why this month’s box is all about how us mere mortals can get ready for our personal red carpets—those times when you need to look and feel extra-amazing. (Think first date, big birthday bash, huge work presentation.)
We’ve filled your Birchboxes with samples to help you feel red carpet-ready anytime: from a new wrinkle-reducing moisturizer to cult favorites from the brand we’ve been lusting after since we first launched Birchbox. We hope they make your everyday events feel just a little more special.
