Hey, beauties! I'm back with another Subscription Box Smackdown! I had a lot of fun with last month's and thought I'd try to make it a monthly thing. I will give you my thoughts on the three I (currently) subscribe to, Ipsy, Glossybox and Boxycharm. Let's get started!
Ipsy is the most inexpensive of the bunch, coming in at only $10 a month. It's a mixture of drugstore and high end products, deluxe sample sizes and full sizes. Here's my October box:
It also came with a cream highlighter by the brand Doll 10. It looked really pretty in the little compact, and I was excited to try it out, but was disappointed. It's super greasy and does not have a good color payout. Womp womp.
Glossybox is $21 a month for a mixture of deluxe samples and full sized high end products. Here's what came in my October box:
Boxycharm is $21 a month and (I think) supposed to be all high end products (deluxe samples and full sized) but truthfully, I've never heard of a lot of the brands that come in the box. Here's what I got this month:
The "major" thing in this box was the Eclipse concealer palette by Coastal Scents ($20 value)
It's a range of 15 colors, for correcting, concealing, highlighting and contouring. If I were still actively freelancing I'd maybe be excited about this, but it will likely go unused by me. I'm not a fan of everyday contouring (um, hello, contouring is GREAT for pictures, not for real life. This is a mistake I see so many people make. Just say no to over contouring, ladies!) It also came with a little nail polish duo ($21), a full sized collagen serum ($48 value), an eye shadow by Be A Bombshell in "halo" which is a very, very bright color that's almost between a silver and a pearly white. It also came with a gorgeous, shimmy olive green eyeliner by Starlooks ($14 value) which in my opinion was the best thing in the whole box. This month's box technically had a good value, dollar-wise, but I think the only thing I will use is the eyeliner. If you want to try out Boxycharm for yourself you can subscribe HERE.
This month's winner?? GLOSSYBOX!!
