A member of the Beauty Partnerships team, Miko may be a recent addition to Birchbox, but she’s completely settled in to her weekday workspace. In fact, she already has quite an impressive stash of products at her desk. Click through to see her favorites, beauty and beyond!
Birchbox staffers have been known to play the beauty field. With so many fun samples floating around, can you blame us for having a hard time committing? Then again, when we find something we love, we stick to it. In this new feature, we’ll be asking Birchbox staffers to share the products they just can’t quit. First up, co-founder and braid guru, Katia.
Katia, Birchbox Co-founder
Beauty profile: Combination skin, thick and dry hair, adventurous/trendy.
Products I can’t quit:
- Benefit They’re Real: Seriously obsessed. It is a magical mascara. Gives you drama without creating clumps, and doesn’t move all day. I love that it’s dark black, but still looks pretty and natural.
- Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo: This smells amazing and deeply cleans without drying out my hair. I think I am producing less oil in my hair since starting to use it months ago.
- Boscia Luminizing Black Mask: This peel-off treatment is so gratifying! Black is genius because you can see everything that happens (or comes off). It clears pores without the unwelcome drama of home extractions.
- Anastasia Brow Wiz: I won’t leave home without this. It makes a huge difference and you can easily control how much of an impact (or lack of impact) you want to make.

A couple years ago, I was getting lash extensions on a regular basis. I was shocked by how it transformed my look and how many compliments I received. For a number of reasons (mainly time and money), I stopped getting my faux fringe, but I desperately missed my movie star-glam lashes. That was until I started using Talika’s Lipocils Expert.
Once a week, Birchbox’s resident Yoga and men’s product expert, Eric, will gives us girls some insight into his world in You’ve Got Male. Whether he’s giving his expertise on skincare (boys need advice, too!) or highlighting his new favorite grooming trend, this guy has got taste—so we’re lucky he’s on staff and willing to share.
For those of you who thought that products to help grow eyelashes are all made from ingredients that were discovered within the last decade, well then you are wrong. (Just to clarify, I was one of those people too.) In 1948, a French doctor named Danielle Roches developed a plant-based healing substance to treat burn victims and, much to her surprise, the treatment made her patients’ eyelashes grow back at warp speed. Thus was born Talika, an incredible French line of eyecare products that I recently just discovered.
