Beauty Boxes

February Ipsy Vs. Birchbox

It’s that time of the month again, where beauty boxes are being sent out to their subscribers! I got mine and was super excited, especially after seeing sneak peeks of what is inside on the company’s Instagrams.


In my Birchbox I got R+Co PARK AVE Blow Out Balm! I tried this and it made my hair so silky smooth I ended up ordering a full-size product. I also got MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream! I was so happy to have gotten this because I always wanted to try it. It works really well and gives any makeup look a nice glow! In my Birchbox I also got Davines Shampoo and packet samples of their conditioner and hair mask. The hair products smell good and work well, I like the shampoo better than the conditioner. I felt that the conditioner and mask left my hair super oily. I was happy to have also received Benefit Cosmetics BADgirl BANG! Bigger, Badder, Volumizing Mascara! I never got to try this mascara but I love it, plus the wand of the mascara is nice and big! And lastly, I got The Beauty Crop Wing Woman Liquid Eyeliner, this works well and is a dark liner although I never heard of this company before!


In my Ipsy I got a double sided Luxie blending brush. I actually love Luxie brushes and use them daily, so I was super happy about getting this! I also got a Glow Rose Gold Blush by Seraphine Botanicals. I didn’t really like this Blush because it didn’t have very good pigment! From Jersey Shore Cosmetics I got a chapstick in the flavor Apple Harvest. I didn’t like this because it didn’t help my chapped lips but it did smell really good! I also received It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer, which I have already been a fan of! I also got PUR Cosmetics Fully Charged Mascara And this mascara was very good!

Overall, I feel that Birchbox won this month. Which is unusual because I tend to like my other beauty boxes more! But I loved Birchbox this month! I hope you enjoyed this post and comment down below which one you liked the most!

  1. So I’m kind of debating between birchbox and ipsy right now. (I currently have the Sephora Play but a lot of people seem to not like it so I’m giving it til the end of the year to see if I like it) Which one do you think you like better?

    1. Between Birchbox and Ipsy, I feel that Ipsy is the best. But overall my favorite subscription boxes are Boxycharm because I always get full-size products that are all name brands I typically know like Tarte, PUR, Ofra etc.


      1. Oh yeah! I do want to switch to boxy charm eventually. I’m picking one of the cheaper ones for now while I’m trying to save money
