Amazing August Hauls!!!!

[ Edited ]

Hello BT! Today is August 1st and that means another month of hauls!

 

This month is the 2x/3x/4x the points for BI,VIB and ROUGE respectively. This is a great time to stock up on points lost throughout the year!

 

Please share your purchases! Remember, a haul is a haul no matter how big or small! Smiley Wink Smiley Happy

Nice.  You always do well with the samples.  You're another charming person.  I really want to try the green GlamGlow.  Can you let me know what you think once you've tried it?  

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I was going to try the blue one tonight but because you asked I will do the green one Smiley Happy

Tried the power mud maśk tonight and I like it. Smells nice, goes on easily, comes off just as easy and leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed. Would I buy the full size.....not sure. The SA gave me a huge sample so I will get a bunch of masks out of it.

wow! would you mind telling us what the 100 pt perk includes? Looks like it includes a mini lipstick..what shade is it? I'm so bummed because I redeemed 2 100pt perks a while back and it didn't include a mini lippie! thanks!

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

This is one of the best hauls.  Nothing beats a free haul that is as fantastic as the ones people paid for.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Wow! The Dior Diva rewards are amazing!

I got my first Birchbox. I can't say I was all that thrilled though lol at least it's only $10. I just got my July one yesterday (they take forever to ship to Hawaii because they ship it by boat which is a little annoying.) I heard something you can get points if you review them? I guess I can't because my July samples arrived in August grrr

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I was on the site this morning hoping my box details had updated and it was still showing July, so you still have time. Hurry! Try all the stuff! LOL

Also, I was wondering, I was on Twitter this morning, and a girl posted her Birchbox that came in, but it looked totally different from mine. Hers had red wrapping paper with bigger size products. Is it because my July one was special with Women's Health promo? As for the sample reviews, I wonder how long I have to review it. I checked it today, and it's still there. I need time to try and actually see if I like it or not lol

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Some months are definitely better than others. The one you saw could have been an August box. It's possible people have started to get theirs. 

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I do not know the cutoff date for reviews, but I usually review my box at the beginning of the following month.  It works for me.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

Thank you! I'll try to hurry

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I completely forgot to mention that Birchbox has an option on every review that says you have not tried the product yet.  It allows me to review items I have not tried (which happens a lot), so I can still get my points.  By telling the system you have not tried the item yet, it allows you to answer questions based on brand recognition and stuff like that.

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I went to Morphe Brushes this afternoon and picked up a few brushes. I've never used this brand but they're so cheap that it was worth giving a try. I came home and gave the the two large brushes a test and really enjoyed them. Haven't tried the shadow brush yet. Looks to be a sorta-dupe of the MAC 217, except it costs about $3. Smiley Happy

I want one of their brushes! I think it's the MB460? It's a flat contour brush, similar to the one in the Sonia Kashuk 15 year brush set and the MAC 163

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

I almost bought that! I thought it was quite nice. The only reason I didn't is because I'm sticking to a super budget and I just don't spend enough time on contouring so when I had to choose between the buffing brush and the contour brush I went with the buffing. But if these ones hold up it's on my list to go back and buy at some point.

Was anyone else disappointed by the Blinc and Buxom mascara samples that came in the swag bag? One coat would give a barely there "natural look" ( I guess I will be using this for the daytime) and after two coats it gave me super spidery lashes. The Buxom one got clumpier after more than one coat than did the Blinc, but they both just gave me these chunky needle-like lashes overall. :/

I still want that mask.  I swatched that lippie at the Rouge event, and I was shocked at how pigmented it was.  Not like the others at all.  Pretty color too.  

Re: Amazing August Hauls!!!!

sorry it wouldnt let me post a comment with my pic. A small haul, JM hand cream, Origins mask ( i am using it as I type) and Fresh sugar Ruby. I like the ruby--it is more of a pinky-red than a true red, but it is sheer and shimmery so I like it for me.  Plus the VIB samplle bag  and other samples. I didn't get  the three I ordered but Oh well! Smiley Happy
