Wednesday Giveaway: August's Birchbox

Aug 10, 2011

As you know from a recent post, I am obsessed with Birchbox.  The service delivers deluxe makeup samples products to your door every month for just $10.  I am recommending it to everyone as a way to explore new products and current trends.

This month, I somehow received two identical boxes.  So I thought that I should give one away.  Sure, I could just send it to my Mom, but there’s nothing in the box that she can really use this time.  

Plus, she’s the reason I was wearing mullet between ages 6 and 12, so she’s still in the dog house for that one. (And don’t give me any crap about how it was a bi-level cut! You can call a trailer a mobile home, but it’s still a house with wheels.)

Before we get to the rules for this giveaway, let’s talk about the prize.

(This is NOT the actual box you will be receiving)

Inside the box, there are four deluxe makeup samples plus and extra little gift.  This month the box contained:

Befine Night Cream and a single-use Exfoliating Cleanser

blinc Mascara

Kate Spade New York, Twirl fragrance

LIFTLAB High Potency Solution anti-aging serum

A Twistband hair tie

Now that we know what we are playing for, here is the contest.  Step 1: Head over to the Capitol Hill Style Facebook page.  Step 2: Like the page, if you haven’t already.  Step 3: On the wall, write the name of the worst beauty product that you have ever tried and the best beauty product that you have ever tried.

The winner will be chosen at random.  Go!

P.S. And Mom, I already bought you a gift subscription.  So, next month, you will receive a Birchbox of your very own.  Who says, I can’t forgive?

    Love Birchbox. Can't wait for mine to arrive.

  3. E says:

    And I was excited to enter this…. until I saw it's only open to people who use facebook.

    I'm getting really sick of giveaways that are posted on sites other than facebook, but are only open to facebook users.

    I'm so excited my first Birchbox is on its way to me!!!!!!

  5. Belle says:

    E- Sorry, I wanted to do something different this time. I've also done giveaways only open to Twitter followers, and I've done some in the blog comments. They'll be another one just in the comments soon.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
