Do you subscribe to Birchbox? Have you ever wished you could choose your own products to fill your monthly box? That’s exactly what I did last night at the Birchbox Local pop-up shop at Chelsea Market. If you’re in New York City, you can still make it to the shop today and tomorrow!
I could not get over how beautifully the space was designed. It was all white lacquer, accented with colorful stripes and exposed brick. There were jars of candy and amazing product samples covering every surface. For $15, I got a manicure with Color Club’s Fashion Moment and filled a Birchbox with five samples. You can also get a hair or makeup touchup, instead of a manicure.
The product sample wall was set up like a candy store. There were clear, vertical bins filled with over 45 different products–mascara, lipstick, highlighting cream, and more. You could also purchase full-size versions of Birchbox’s best sellers and products that were selected by their team.
I chose the following products: Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow (full-size at $22), Inika Light Reflecting Highlighting Creme (full-size at $39), Marcelle Xtension Plus Mascara (full-size at $12.50), Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick (Full-size at $22), Yes To Grapefruit CC Cream (full-size at $15.99).
Almost every featured sample was from a different brand. They were also offering hair products! To book a beauty service or customize your own Birchbox, see more information below.
