Another round of Birchbox versus Ipsy! Last month I chose Birchbox as the winner which is unusual because I tend to lean more towards Ipsy. So will Birchbox keep its winning streak or will Ipsy claim the win once again?
This month’s Birchbox is looking like it’s lacking. This month from Birchbox I got a ModelCo Luxe Creme Long Wear Lipstick in a peach color. I thought this was a nice lipstick but it isn’t something I would go out of my way to wear. I also got a Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel. I love face peels because it makes my skin feel rejuvenated, so I’m not mad about this! I also got a Juara Candlenut Body Cream, I am not sure how I feel about getting this as a sample. I already have tons of body creams, so this isn’t very useful for me. I got a OUAI Leave-In Conditioner which I’m super happy about! I love the brand OUAI and I’ve been meaning to try more of their products, so this definitely gives me a great opportunity to do so. (Not pictured) I also got two very small samples of Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum And Rt+Co Shampoo and Conditioner. What I am most happy about is getting Smashbox’s Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer. I have wanted to try this product from Smashbox for some time but I keep forgetting to purchase it! Luckily, I saved the money by forgetting because I was sent one through Birchbox. This made me extremely happy.
For Ipsy, I really liked their theme this month. You can color the bag and personalize it! This month I got a Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Rose Gold Baked Highlighter, this wasn’t a product I was too happy with because it was extremely chalky. I was also sent a Skin&Co Whipped Cleansing Cream, this wasn’t something that I was excited about but I can always use a cleansing cream. I got, yet another, Doucce Freematic Eyeshadow. I really do not like these eyeshadows because they are extremely chalky and the samples are super small and cheap. Another thing I got was sex kitten eyeliner from Tarte, I won’t use this eyeliner but it’s nice to get a name brand in a subscription box. The one thing I was super excited about was the fan brush.
I have to say, recently, Birchbox has been doing so much better in regards to the samples they are sending. I choose Birchbox as the winner this month! I hope you enjoyed this post and comment below who you think won!
