So, I have been a Birchbox girl and lately a lot of friends have recommended Ipsy. I figured why not give them a shot!
I ordered 3 months ago and finally got off the waiting list (that was ridiculously long) They charged me on the 2nd of August and my box was delivered on the 15th.
First impressions, I am not impressed! The bag came in a pink mailer envelope which was cute, but he bag inside was squished flat. Then When I opened it up, I realized there was only 3 tiny samples. There was supposed to be 5 according to my Glam room.
These are the tiniest samples! This is what I was supposed to get:
I emailed Ipsy and still haven’t heard from them yet. I hope they will replace the missing items.
For now I am on the fence about recommending them. They are $10 a month with free US shipping.
I have been with Birchbox for almost two years now. The first year, I was ready to cancel because their samples were so small and not worth it, IMHO. Then they gave me a great deal on another year subscription. Normally it is $10 a month with free shipping, and I was able to get a year’s sub for $20 (I used my points) and thought what the heck! I’ll give them another shot. Well, let me tell you, this year they have really stepped up their game! I have received full sized items and much larger samples this year, and have been very happy with them!
Today, I am sharing my awesome August Birchbox, which has blown me away, again! So BirchBox is always the first box I get each month (love that!!!)
Here is the Box before it is opened!
I am already loving how big the samples are, and wait is that a full sized item?
Oh lawd yes! It is a full size Model Co Bronzer! Valued at $22!!
The rest is still good,
