Ipsy Glam Bag vs. Birchbox

Ipsy Glam Bag vs. Birchbox

First up I have to say that I am a big fan of both beauty boxes but a lot of people have been asking me which one they should try. With both boxes you get to fill out a beauty profile about your skin type and hair color so that the products you get are a better match for you.

Here’s the scoop on both.

Ipsy Glambag

Each month Ipsy give you a customized bag with 5 beauty products. I absolutely love getting the bag and I also like Ipsy’s creativity. I feel like they put a little art into each month and their selections are great. I’ve had Ipsy for over a year now and I’ve loved 12 out of 15 bags. Occasionally I get products that I can’t use so I gift them to a friend.

If you love trying new things and bag you should try Ipsy.

Cost: $10/month

Some of the brands I’ve gotten from Ipsy: Dirty Little Secret, Tarte, Purlisse, Ciate, NYX, theBalm, Too Faced, Josie Maran, Lord & Berry, Dr. G, TONY MOLY, NudeStix, Trifle Cosmetics.

Birchbox

Birchbox comes in a colorful box each month and if you collect pretty boxes you’ll love them. Birchbox is more hit or miss for me. I usually really love their box or it’s kind of Meh. I have however gotten some high-end  products like GlamGlow, MAC and Bumble and bumble which is nice. I also tend to get a lot of hair products from Brichbox.

If you love a nice box and high-end brand names you should try Birchbox.

Cost: $10/month

Some of the brands I’ve gotten from Birchbox: Coola, MAC, GlamGlow, MannaKadar Cosmetics, Stila, Skin Food, R+Co., Benefit, Dr. Brandt, Bumble and bumble, Vasanti, Beauty Protector.

July 2017 Birchbox Review

I actually decided to cancel my Birchbox subscription for now. While I do like Birchbox I feel like I’ve been getting a lot of duplicate products so it’s good-bye for now although I may sigh back up for the holidays.

I created a video unboxing for the July Birch Box and you might notice that I’m wearing a super cool tiara! My girlfriend runs a blog and Etsy store called Imperial Crochet and I really wanted to show off her work (she’s amazing) so do stop by her blog and Etsy Store as she’s got some really nice crocheted items including the tiara I’m wearing.

What I got in my July Birchbox!
