Inside the Birchbox July Sneak Peek

Each month, the Birchbox Sneak Peek is as highly anticipated for our staffers as it is for our customers and this month is no different. July’s theme is Power Play, a move that maximizes your happiness or confidence. What better way to make the most of this summer than to be at the top of your game? I love being able to have fun with family and friends without having to worry about beauty mishaps so I’m super excited to try out theBalm cosmetics InStain Long-Wearing Powder Staining Blush. A blush that looks like a powder but lasts as long as a stain? Now that’s what I need on those long summer days. Watch the July Sneak Peek video below and then let us know which products are you looking forward to!

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.

Today’s Obsession: Guerlain’s New Holiday Color Collection 2012

Some bundles of joy arrive via the stork—ours come courtesy of legendary Parisian brand Guerlain.

Milestones aside, two things always make the content team gush with excitement: when someone brings an extra special accessory to work (adorable children!) or when a package of new beauty goods arrives. Last week, a chic Guerlain bag filled with new products landed on our desks and quite frankly, there was so much ooh-ing and aah-ing you would’ve thought we’d landed in the newborn section of a hospital.

Inside the package was Guerlain’s coveted Holiday Color Collection 2012—a gorgeous mix of luxe nail lacquers, dreamy makeup palettes and so much more. Inspired by Liu, the doomed heroine of a classic Puccini opera, the collection features an elaborate Asian-inspired color scheme that includes deep plums and luminous golds. Here are our top picks from the line that’s hitting Saks Fifth Avenue this October:

August First Look: DDF’s Cleanser Brightens Skin and Banishes Spots

Spoiler Alert: Some of our members will be receiving DDF’s rockstar cleanser in their August Birchboxes!

I grew up in Miami and spent most of my weekends and all my summers on the water, either sailing or teaching sailing. Needless to say, I spent a lot of time in the sun. That, coupled with a mid-20s bout of acne, left me with more than a few sun spots and dark areas. Luckily, skincare products have become more and more effective at fading these types of marks.
