Beauty junkies are a very special breed — they’re the type for whom a new potion, lotion, gloss or even brush can elicit the kind of rush usually associated with illegal acts. Sadly for these creatures, the addiction often comes with a hefty price tag. But now there’s a way for them to get a fix and not go broke in the process: Birchbox, a service that delivers a box of four or five beauty-product samples (often in deluxe sizes and from big names like Nars, Kiehl’s and Benefit) to their door for just $10 a month. www.birchbox.com
