If you’ve read my previous Birchbox reviews you’ve probably noticed that there aren’t very many makeup items included. The box in general seems to be heavy on hair, skin and body products with some makeup thrown in. I’m ok with that because I don’t wear makeup everyday and the samples I do get last me quite a while. If you are looking for a makeup heavy box though Birchbox might not be for you. I like my Birchboxes and while there is always room for improvement I’m fairly happy with what I’ve received so far.
