February 2012: Editor’s Letter

Contrary to popular belief, February is not all about Valentine’s Day. (Though we do have a soft spot for conversation hearts.) It’s about having fun and giving in to your flirty side. That’s why we chose Spotlight as this month’s theme, and filled our February Birchboxes with bold makeup designed to turn heads. We’ve also got a new issue of the Birchbox Magazine, with stories you’ll want to read right now.Trendsetter? Check out our test-drive of the stick-on makeup trend. Design Sponge addict? Our profile of graphic designer and blogger Mrs. Lilien will have you dreaming in printed wallpaper and fanciful baubles. There’s also a guide to clear skin, a date night survival kit, and much more. And, because we're not just about beauty, we've also got free song downloads from Texas-based indie rockers, Green River Ordinance.
