September 2012 Birchbox

I received my September Birchbox a week ago, but never got around to posting about it. This month`s issue with Birchbox is yet again about their shipping service as it took almost a whole month to be delivered, if I had not received it a week ago. I understand that it costs $10/month + free shipping, but I expect stuff to be delivered in a timely manner. It is beginning to irritate me as the past couple of months` boxes have been underwhelming and shipping was slow as a snail. On a positive note though, I give them props for always having a nice presentation when it comes to`s like having a little Christmas morning type of feeling on a bad day/ after a long day of work.

The <strong>theme for September was aptly named as "The September Issue"</strong> modeling after fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper`s Bazaar, etc. since September is all about Fashion Week for the upcoming Spring 2013 collection. I was quite satisfied with what I had received in terms of the products given, but as a whole box itself I wasn`t really feeling the "WOW" factor. Yet again, I am gonna give Birchbox until December to make up for it all since the Holidays season is nearing soon in the future! If the company/boxes don`t improve by then, I may cancel my subscription for good. Ranting aside, I will introduce the items in my Birchbox.

<strong>Items in my September Birchbox:</strong>
Birchbox very own Fall Lookbook with tips/fashion advices for Fall season
Kate Spade Twirl Perfume sample with spray top
Twistband elastic hair tie in red lace
Jouer Cosmetics Matte Moisture tint sample (I was given the shade in Hazel, which as the darkest shade out of the 5-6 shades...even though I listed myself as medium toned on their profile quiz?)
Skin, An Apothecary Soy Body Whip in Poppy (this is a generous sized sample given as 2 oz!)
Birchbox + Color Club Custom Nail Color Collections in "Insta-this" (aptly themed after Social Media websites/applications)
Hollywood Secrets Fashion Tape sample (was given a fashion tape each in different size/form...what am I gonna do with the other side of my outfit?)
$25 off any $50 purchase or more Madewell coupon (which expired yesterday September 30 and their items are pricey, plus I am on a budget as of recently trying to save)

The value of my box as a whole is at least $12 or more, but I have yet to feel estatic with my monthly Birchbox as a whole. I haven`t tried out any of the products yet, but I will try to post about them when I get a chance to test these products out. There you have it ladies as you have a peek what`s inside my September Birchbox. <strong>If you are a Birchbox subscriber, what did you luuuxers received in your September box?</strong> Please share below.
