This Wednesday I’m going to chat about my favorite pink packaged beauty subscription… Ipsy! It’s near the end of the month and May Glam Bags will be on their way shortly. If you’re unfamiliar with Ipsy you can read more about this beauty subscription in my last review here.
April’s theme was Dreamers, and funny enough I didn’t get a picture of the fun pink bubble wrapping. As always, your beauty goods come with a bonus “glam” bag, which this month was a tie-dye motif. Not my favorite, but still useful to have. This is going to look like a very blue Pink post… but it’s the thought that counts right?!
When they say first impressions are everything, it’s true. I wanted to love this box so much, but in reality I can’t.
Let me start by saying, I don’t want to bash a company and make it seem horrible. However I do want to share my experience to help others decide if they want to venture into a Birchbox subscription or not. For any newbies to the subscription box scene, Birchbox is a $10 a month subscription that sends you four to six sample (usually deluxe) sizes of assorted beauty products. They have their own shop which includes makeup, skincare, haircare and more, where you get rewarded for purchases. Plus they also offer lifestyle items such as anything from headphones to picture frames. For more information, a sneak peek at the March box, and all of their add ons you can check it out here!
Birchbox Date Night information card
The date night box caught my interest right off the bat, considering I wanted to try three out of the five samples so badly. I could have left it up to chance but I already knew I’d be happy with this box so I thought why not?
It included samples of:
- Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Strumpet
- Cynthia Rowley Beauty Brightening Illuminator
- Whish Renewing Mud Mask
- Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray
- Catherine Malandrino Romance de Provence fragrance sample
I was very interested in the first three, but not crazy about getting a hair and perfume product. I still thought three out of five would be great instead of leaving it all up to chance!
