September 2012: Editor’s Letter

By now, you’ve stocked up on all of your September issues (Vogue, Glamour, Marie Claire, Elle…). Well we have one more piece of required reading: the Birchbox Fall 2012 Look Book. Our first mini-mag went out with our September boxes, but you can also check it out here. It highlights ten of our favorite fall beauty trends, from mixed up manicures to deep dark lips. If some of the models look familiar, it’s because they’re Birchbox staffers—proof that these styles are guaranteed to work on real girls.

But that’s not all. We’ve put together a jam-packed lineup of articles and videos for you. Find out why CC creams are poised to challenge BB creams, and read an exclusive interview with former The Hills star Lauren Conrad. Check out our video with Madewell’s Kin Ying Lee (be prepared to drool over her fall fashion picks) and watch our chevron nail tutorial. Start exploring now!
