August Ipsy vs. Birchbox

I decided a couple of months ago to give Birchbox and Ipsy a try, as I’ve been hearing about it forever it seems.  I have an obsession with trying new products, but I hate buying full size anything….1 because I never use a full bottle of product, no matter how much I love it, and 2 it’s expensive to buy a full size if I’m not going to use it all!  So I figured for $10 a month/per box, I could get my fix and try out some fun new things!  You actually get to fill out a profile, that way the box will be customized to your liking, which I think is super awesome!  So if you do end up ordering either or both of these, you will probably receive a few of the same, but a lot different too!  Let me tell you, that it is super exciting waiting for your box every month, it’s like ordering surprise products from your favorite beauty store!!

Here is my Birchbox for August::



How stinkin’ cute is this box?!  I thought the boxes you would get every month were going to be super boring, but every month has been SO cute!  I haven’t gotten rid of one yet because they are great for storing things 🙂

It’s so hard for me to pick a favorite box every month, but I think Ipsy has my heart this time, I’ll let you know if that changes once I use everything!! 🙂
