Beauty Boxes

Battle of the Beauty Boxes: September

This month of September I am, again, comparing three beauty boxes ipsy, Birchbox, and Boxycharm. I will choose my favorite box this month according to who gives you the most bang for your buck and who has the best products!

First up, Birchbox!

This month might have been my least favorite of all the boxes I have ever received. It came with a Daily Concepts facial scrubber that was gentle, 12 Benefits healthy hair treatment, Coola organic BB Cream in shade golden, Avene 3 in 1 makeup remover, and Arrow Enhance waterproof eyeliner in shade bright now. The only things that I really liked in this box was the Coola BB Cream and the eyeliner. Other than that, this box was not the best. I feel as if the products in this box come out to $5 and isn’t worth the $10 this month.

Second box is Boxycharm!

So just in opening Boxycharm I’m already liking what I’m seeing. I got a full size PUR palette called Soiree Diaries, a Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair! Deep conditioning hair mask, a Colour Pop Liquid Ultra Satin Lipstick in the shade strip, a bareMinerals Face Perfecting foundation brush, a StudioMakeup loose blush, and a MAC brow pencil! This box was a total win for me because I got 5 full size products and only one deluxe size product. The products are great quality and with this being $21 a month I feel as if I’m getting the best bang for my buck!

And last but not least, ipsy!

Like. A. Boss. is right! ipsy did amazingly this month! They gave me a full size Brow Boss brow pencil from Colour Pop, a full size Gellusion nail polish in shade Capricorn, a deluxe size sample of Smashbox photo finish Radiance primer, a full size Pixi by Petra Blush duo (which is more of a highlighter than a blush), and a deluxe size sample of Skin Food Black Sugar Mask. The products are great quality and I really feel like I’m getting my money’s worth in this box.

To make my decision on my favorite beauty box this month I’m going to have to say ipsy! For only $10 I got 3 out of 5 full size products. Plus ipsy had a very cute makeup bag this month as well, with the black fake leather and the studs! A close second was definitely Boxycharm but for the price point ipsy did well this month!

I hope you enjoyed reading. Let me know in the comments which was your favorite!
