Have you heard of Birchbox yet?

It’s this new subscription service where for $10 a month, they send you a cute pink box filled with cool new beauty samples. I joined about four months ago, and I’m loving it. It’s like a little present every month in the mail just for me!

Anyway, two nights ago I attented a Birchbox party that took place at Benefit Cosmetics here in Santa Monica.

For a $45 ticket price, I got my eyebrows waxed (so needed that), $35 toward Benefit products (of course I spent more), and a new Birchbox filled with even more Benefit goodies. It was a lot of fun, especially since I told my husband I was “researching” a new Internet company.

Here were all the Birchbox favors. Inside was a Benefit Bad Gal mascara and a Benetint lip and cheek stain…

Here’s Sarah from Benefit who did an awesome job on my makeup… That’s why I bought so many products.

And here’s my new friend Eric from Birchbox…

If you like discovering new makeup and beauty products, Birchbox is super fun and so worth the $10 a month!
