Mother of Birchboxes: My Holiday #Birchbox Limited Edition Boxes Review with 900 Points!



(Source: Blueridge Beauty Blogger)

Back in early November, I redeemed my 900 Birchbox points for two Limited Edition Boxes: Every Day Glamour (purple box) and Luxe List (Red Box). I know that there will be an upcoming wedding among over events and holiday gatherings that I will need a little glam and pampering! At first several bloggers and Birchbox subscribers confessed that what I did was not only "impossible" but "inconceivable" that I have accumulated that many points...but with writing a Review over items that I received in my monthly Birchbox, sharing my month Birchbox, making purchases at Birchbox, and humbly receiving "500 Birchbox Points" during the Birchbox Anniversary Month I have simply achieved my modest points!

The "Everyday Glamour" Limited Edition Birchbox appealed to me after a Birchbox video showing what's inside and how to use it! Plus it was an excellent value as well $48 USD ($197 USD value!!!)! For this budget Beauty and Fashionista..YES, PLEASE!! :) And a great way to use my 900 Birchbox Points, too! :)

I confessed not as Birchblogger but as a Beauty Blogger in general, I have several beauty, skincare, and hair care items  not only from my December and November Birchboxes, but from other sources as well! So I hope to use the contents of my "Everyday Glamour" box for my Christmas Weekend activities! I just love how well curated these items are for this box and I wanted to put on some glam for upcoming Holiday activities and events! I tried the nail  Ciate polish in my earlier blog posts!

I wanted to experience the Luxe List Limited Edition Birchbox because of the items within this box which I can also use my Birchbox Points towards the Holidays! This Birchbox was another great value at $65 USD (a $255 USD value!!!!). After seeing the Birchbox video, my mind was already made up! :)

There are some things that I like about Cynthia Rowley which has partnered with Birchbox for exclusives, but I just don't like the color nor design of this deep makeup bag! Definitely going to Swap/Giveaway pile!

 I will post future updates of my Holiday looks for this upcoming Christmas and New Year's in the following posts! I will definitely be using most of the contents of the "Luxe List" Limited Edition Birchbox!

 Have you saved up your Birchbox Points for that special purchase? Have you tried either or both of these Limited Edition boxes?  I personally can't wait what Limited Edition Birchboxes will be created in 2016!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's to all my bloggers and readers around the world! :)

Until next time....

  2. Oh wow what amazing boxes! This is great post, i have been tempted with beauty boxes for a long time but worry I wouldn't use half the stuff that comes in them due my skin reacting to different brands. I love the selection of high end to lower end brands though. xx
