This month, the Birchbox theme was: Heritage. A little note was included in the box from the founders of Birchbox:
The best part about beauty? It's not the glitter or the gloss, or even those miraculous antioxidants from far-off lands. It's the stories. Every brand we work with, from the just-hatched to the iconic, has its own fascinating history. Just look at Ruffian, a New York-based fashion label started by two designers with a flair for Victorian drama. Their first nail lacquer collection - which all out subscribers will get to try this month - was inspired by the runways but voted on by you. File that away for party conversation when someone compliments your mani.
