I love my monthly subscriptions. But really though. It is like getting presents every month! So here are this months. Birchbox and Ipsy…AAANNNNNDDDDGO.
This was a pretty good box. Not gonna lie. It was only 2 days late again too! So, extra plus! Juicy Couture: I love the Juicy’s Viva La Juicy perfume, like am totally in love with it. I really wish I owned it. But this scent really wasn’t my favorite. I will admit though, I don’t mind getting the perfume samples in my box. I know a lot of people don’t like it, but I get EXTREMELY overwhelmed when trying to find perfume. I also get really bad headaches if I smell too many. So, in my book, I am ok with getting these in my box.
Mox Botanicals-Pomegranate & Fig Lip Butter: At first smell I totally loved it. It wasn’t too strong and had a pleasant smell. After using it a few times the smell has gotten really strong. BUT I am really sensitive to dry anything so I NEED to have lotion and chapstick on me at all times. This is great for the bottom of my purse (which is where it was before I could take a pic of it and almost lost it in that black hole). What I am not a fan of…putting my finger in it every time I want to use it.
Number 4-Clarifying Shampoo: I haven’t used this yet. Every time I get in the shower, I remember it is in my room and say screw it, and use my usual shampoo again. I will let you know how it goes once I remember to put it in the shower.
theBalm Cosmetics-Hot Mama: I actually really like this stuff. I got an eyeshadow from them in my Ipsy bag last month. I have to admit though, I normally don’t venture outside my comfort zone when it comes to makeup. I like my makeup to take me no more than 5 minutes and so my routine is the same every time and so are my colors. When I got this, I figured it would be nice to try a different color every now and then and try new things. PLUS, it wasn’t going to put more time onto my routine. It is a nice shade. It is a little pink but shimmery. I am pretty sure I like it.
Tweezerman-Filemate: Who doesn’t need another nail file. And this one is cute and it is a nice travel size to throw in my bag or to take on trips with me. I never have one when I need one.
They also gave us this rent the runway gift card for $50 off. Basically, you rent a super expensive dress for a night or 2. Cool idea. I am still too cheap for this though. The bummer with this gift card is, you have to spend $125 or more to use it. If I am going to spend $75 on a dress, it better be in my closet for forever.
This came with everything too. I am super into wrapping presents this year so I will definitely be using it. Also, you can share it on all your social media accounts with #bboxholiday
Pretty good box, right!? I am happy with it 🙂
I have been loving Ipsy so far. They come ON TIME and they give really good products and I have only received 2 bags so far BUT (knock on wood) both of them have had multiple full sized products. Total win.
Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil: Last month we got a brown pencil, at least this month it is black. I haven’t tried it yet though. Man, I really need to get out more….
Mirabella Prime – For Face and Eyes: I have only used a primer once and that was when I was trying out makeup at benefit. I am not too big of a fan of primer mostly for the fact that I can feel it on my face and you can REALLY tell that I am wearing makeup. Also, like I said before, I don’t really want my makeup to take more than 5 minutes. I’m gonna try it out. See what it is like. Bonus: It is full size!
NYX – Loose Pearl Shadow: I have yet to try this too. we will see what its like though. Apparently its got a crap ton of different uses. Also, I am pretty sure this is a full size product too!
Mia Couture – Highlighter Paper: I am super excited to try this out. I have been really interested in highlighters but haven’t really wanted to shell out the money for them. I have the ELF highlighter and it has been fun to play with. So I am excited about these. Bonus: there is a bunch of sheets of these AND it comes with directions. Double bonus.
be a Bombshell – Hot Mess Lip Gloss: I like this lip gloss. It doesn’t smell like anything which is good because I am not tempted to lick it off all day long and the color is really nice. I don’t really have any real red lip color either so I am excited to use it. I hope I can semi pull it off lol or else I am just gonna rock it till I make it! HA.
PS. This is a full size product too!
I am thrilled with both subscriptions this month. I really need to get out more/get a life so I can try all these out more!
Do you guys subscribe? What do you get each month? I am turning into a subscription junkie. (not to be confused with prescription junkie..) I really need a full time job lol.
PS. Last month in my ipsy bag, I got a nail polish. I finally used it. I LOVE it. OMG. So festive!
