Beauty e-commerce company Birchbox announced a new partnership with Us Weekly to create a special edition Birchbox for the 2014 movie awards season. Launching February 2014, the custom Birchbox will feature products hand-picked by Us Weekly beauty director Gwen Flamberg, and is inspired by the most iconic red carpet looks of the season.
For the February 2014 shipment, all Birchbox subscribers will receive the “Step and Repeat” themed box, which includes red-carpet essentials from brands such as Smashbox, OPI, Dr. Brandt and Beauty Protector. And new customers who sign up at www.birchbox.com/usweekly by February 15, 2014 will receive the special edition Us Weekly Birchbox as their first monthly box. For a limited time only, new subscribers will also receive a special bonus 12-issue subscription to Us Weekly.
Additionally, on March 2, 2014, immediately following this year’s Academy Awards®, Us Weekly and Birchbox will give customers the chance to shop Sunday’s hottest red-carpet looks first with a “Get the Look” shop featuring a selection of products straight from Flamberg and the celeb insiders at Us Weekly. The Oscars-inspired products and tips will also be featured in the March 12, 2014, issue of Us Weekly.
“Us Weekly is our go-to destination for celebrity-inspired fashion and beauty tips,” said Katia Beauchamp, co-founder of Birchbox. “We are so excited to partner with Gwen and the Us Weekly editorial team to give our customers insider access to celebrity beauty tips and trends, straight from the red carpet.”
"At Us Weekly, awards season is our time to celebrate every red carpet look and bring all the details to our readers," said Flamberg, beauty director for Us Weekly. "Our partnership with Birchbox takes our awards coverage one step further, offering the latest in red carpet beauty trends directly to consumers."
