For now, I'm going to talk about Ipsy. It's AWESOME. I'm a former Birchbox subscriber, and I really wasn't happy with them. I got way too many eye creams and teas that I really didn't care for. Maybe one piece was something I actually liked.
I subscribed to Ipsy for $110 for 12 months maybe 5 months ago? There is a long waiting list, so you will not immediately start receiving your boxes. You complete an online profile with your style description, hair and skin color and type, and what beauty "issues" you have. Each month's goodies come in a little zipper cosmetic bag with a different pattern each month.
Here is what I received this month.
One: Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Gel1.7 oz travel size. Sold at Beauty Brands for $4.98. I'm super excited to try this stuff, and I'm always on the lookout for high end products in a travel size.
Two: Zoya Nail Polish in Giovanna
0.5 oz full size. Sold for $8. This isn't a color that I would typically choose. I'm more into the gel polishes, but I have a feeling I know a friend or two who would like this.
Three: Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly
2 ml travel size. Full size (4.45 ml) sold for $19. I've heard that this lipgloss is a cult favorite, so I can't wait to try it. It has a little bit of a tingle, so it makes lips appear fuller.
Four: LA Fresh Oil Free Face Cleansing Wipes10 wipe travel size. Full size (30 wipes) sold for $10. I'm super lazy about washing my face before I go to bed, so I mostly use wipes. I'm all about finding good wipes with lots of moisture to get every last smudge off.
Five: Be Delectable: Coconut and Cream Hand Cream
2 oz travel size. Full size (4 oz) sold for $10. This stuff smells heavenly! My hands get so nasty and dry in the winter, especially if I'm working a lot. This is a smaller sized tube that will fit perfectly in my scrub pocket.
Do you get Ipsy or Birchbox? Do you like it?
