About:  Birchbox is a monthly subscription box that sends out around 5 or 6  product samples for you to try every month .  You will typically find Beauty, Grooming and Lifestyle products inside each Birchbox.  The box itself is a great way to find out about high end brands and new products without having to purchase full size!

Birchbox Points: Every month you get a chance to review your samples, and for every sample review you earn 10 points.  So if you keep up with reviewing your samples every month you will gain around 50 to 70 points which accumulates to $1 for every 10 points, you basically get most of your money back that you spent on the box to spend in the birchbox shop.  Also, for every purchase you make in the shop you will gain 1 point per dollar! For every friend you refer to Birchbox you will earn 50 points $5 to spend in the shop.

Sumita Contrast Eyeliner – Jamune

Sample Size $4.81 Value!

This is made with a soft wax formula that goes on to create clean lines or can be smudged for a smoky look! A dose of hydrating glycerin guards against eye irritation.  I am slowly building my eyeliner collection and the color of this one is perfect!  I have yet to try it out, but hopefully it doesn’t smudge easily!
