MAY 2014 BIRCHBOX VIDEO REVIEW (SPOILER: IT KIND OF SUCKS)



Hello!

I haven't done a video in ages, but when I mentioned that I'm a dumb sucker who signed up for Ipsy/Birchbox/Glossybox again, people asked me to keep them posted on how I like them. I originally cancelled my subscriptions in the past because they kept sending me terrible shit, like pieces of string (not joking), but I'm a sucker for mail and makeup, so here we are.

In this video, I review the May 2014 Birchbox (Glossy and Ipsy haven't arrived yet), which I end up giving a grade of a C-. (Am I not supposed to tell you that? Should I withhold info so you'll watch it? In that case, TUNE IN TO SEE HOW I GRADE THIS BOX!)

My total lack of social media knowledge aside, at the end of this video is a story about how I was real creepy and weird with a reader who said hi to me this weekend, so even if you don't give a shit about Birchbox, you can tune in for that.

If you want me to keep making these, let me know! They are fun to make, but humiliating to playback for myself, but if they are at least helpful or entertaining I'll keep making them! I am going to subscribe for a minimum of three months before I cancel, just to give it a real fighting chance, but if this box is any indication, it's not looking promising for you, Birchbox.

xo,
z

PS: If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'll notice that I changed my usernames back to "megzandi", instead of "radicalpossibility". Just a heads-up!

  3. I've been doing birchbox for almost a year and every time I say I'm going to cancel they send me something awesome. It's like they know just where someone's breaking point is so that they can pull you back in. I'm jealous of your lip balm. I've yet to get a full sized lip product besides CHAPSTICK (literally the ChapStick brand. ridiculous). But I will say that I have received a face SPF or two that have been helpful so they exist!

    also- hahahahahahhahahaha about the craigslist comment.

  4. I kinda assumed birchbox was lame, but so many other bloggers are not honest about that sort of stuff, so thanks for keeping it real Meg. Also, I actually LOL'd at your Craigslist story and keep posting videos, maybe one that guest stars Lucille Austero?

  5. The only thing I liked in mine was the pixi gloss (in pink) which is at least $8 retail so I don't feel that bad but I get so much dumb stuff, like gummy vitamins???? this month. Glossybox is almost worse, so many no name brands but sometimes there is something awesome. The best thing about Birchbox is reviewing products then getting the points for free stuff in the shop.

  7. Agreed. I may have to seek out the pixi stain but the rest seem like leftovers from a swag bag.

  10. Meg I love you. As always you make me laugh hysterically "I'd pay $10 for someone to send me a box of random crap from their house." LOL. Yes, please making these videos. I love them, I love you, and they let me live vicariously through your monthly boxes.
