Anyone who doesn’t find joy in beauty products is no friend of mine (it's safe to assume they also despise springtime, baby elephants, and frosting). For the rest of us, let’s embrace the excitement of new mascara and bask in the delight of a primer that makes our pores look tiny. If only you could wrap the hopeful feeling of new beauty products in a glamorous holiday gift and get yourself a present in the process. Enter Birchbox and Cynthia Rowley Beauty. The grooming gift mecca and designer beauty line are rewarding your holiday generosity with a full size Cynthia Rowley Beauty Liquid Liner ($18 value, free with promo code:cynthiarowleybeauty) when you purchase an annual or ultimate gift subscriptionBecause you really should be rocking cat eyes anytime you find yourself under mistletoe.
If you already subscribe to Birchbox, you undoubtedly love the anticipation of wondering which travel size makeup, hair products, and fragrances will be delivered to your door every month. The beautiful packaging, unpronounceable (possibly magical) ingredients, and intoxicating scents of beauty products hold infinite promise. A new lipstick can unleash your inner happy hour queen after a grueling workday, and the right perfume can make you the most inviting person in a room.
Gifts that you only get to open once are so last Christmas. A Birchbox subscription will return with new beauty surprises every four weeks! And if you’ve found an eye shadow your sister keeps trying to steal or a lipstick that might wrench your roommate out of her breakup depression (or at least out of the apartment), you can purchase full size products from the Birchbox Shop. Members earn Birchbox rewards with every purchase, so you’ll be giving yourself a gift in the process.
