Beauty Box Favorites

I decided I wanted to do a fun little experiment in my life and then tell you all on my blog.  I have a lot of other interests in my life besides running and my children.  Once upon a time, I loved to wear makeup.  I loved to try new makeup, shop for it and watch other people put it on.  About 7 years ago, right before I started having children, I had a lot of free time! I can barely remember those days, but it was right around the time YouTube was really getting big and I used to watch make up tutorials. I remember signing up for Birchbox and loving the idea of getting samples sent to you for an inexpensive price.  Well, I had kids and life kind of went crazy from there so I canceled my subscription.  Well, now that my baby is 9 months, I have been able to get back into my hobbies that I once used to enjoy.  I have been running quite a bit, but make up is slowly creeping back into my life.  It's been several years since I have had a beauty subscription and now there is a million to choose from.  I signed up for the top 3 that I have heard the most about: Birchbox, Ipsy and Glossybox.

As previously mentioned, I had received Birchbox in the past.  It was my first ever experience with a beauty box subscription.  I had heard from quite a few close friends that Birchbox wasn't really worth the price.  This subscription is $10 a month.  They offer 5 personalized samples to your door every month.  This month I got a Burt's Bees tinted lip balm, Naobay Mattifying CreamTOCCA Eau de Parfum Florence, Coastal Scents Style Eyes Pallette and Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair Mask.  I really like the lip balm and the perfume, but have not tried the masks yet.  

I loved the box! I mean who doesn't love Rifle!! However, I wasn't in love with anything.  I was happy, but not excited.  I think I might cancel this subscription since it wasn't a favorite and most of my friends told me to not expect much.  SAD!

Now onto my Ipsy bag! I have heard great things about Ipsy.  This bag is also $10 a month and so I knew I didn't have too much to lose if I didn't like it.  Well I opened up my bag and wow, I was in love!! Everything in it was something I would totally use!  

In this month's ipsy bag, I got a tarte cosmetics LipSurgence lip creme in wonder, Probelle Nailpolish, Crown Brush in C427, pur~lisse Beauty Masks, Nomad Cosmetics Eyeshadow- Desert Sands

I am not sure if I will keep this subscription going.  It definitely was a great bag, but I will see.  I like it a lot, but I think I will give next month another try and see if I like that one too.  I recommend ipsy!

Now last, but certainly not least is Glossybox.   I have to say this one might be my favorite.  One little random thing was, they ship really fast!! This is already my second one and I purchased the box about 3 weeks ago.  They got me my March box like the last week of or even day of March.  Then just a few days later, they notified me saying my April box had shipped. I think that has really made me like them more.  There is one important thing I would like to mention, this box is $21 a month.  They claim they will send 5 luxury brand products which they have and 2-3 of them have been full size.  

In April's box, I received Unani Dermo Defense Face Mask, Studio | 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner, Leighton Denny nailpolish, Not you mothers Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray.

I will definitely be keeping this in my rotation for beauty box subscriptions.  The price is more than double of the other two, but I felt like they really put a lot of effort into the products they chose.  Plus the packaging is adorable and comes in this cute pink box that I can use for other things!
