A day after I opened March Birchbox. I got Ipsy bag. Both sends out 5 beauty samples a month, both costs $10.
I think I got a good February samples from both Birchbox and Ipsy. Birchbox had benefit's much advertised roller lash which I came to love, and Ipsy had Glam Glow eye mask which are über spendy and I haven't tried. Maybe Glam Glow's pricing is not helping the sale here. Is it just me!?
Anyway, I liked both boxes last month. This month on Ipsy.....
Theme is floral fantasy.
This month's bag was very light. Hmmm...
Here are what's inside.
Five items. Here are two I will keep to try:
I am not a big fan of dr. Brandt, so not sure if I like this... But never tried this product, so will see. As to this hair item, I said I don't like to put stuff in my hair, just yesterday. However, I do combat flyaway, so will see if this will help. Someday.
And here are three I will get rid of:
Pencil highlighter... I usually either use my fingers or face brush to apply high lighter, and if it's around my eyes, I would use light eyeshadow with sponge tips. So... I am not sure how to apply this product.
NYX butter lipstick in little Susie. Pretty color but too pinky and girlie for me. Also dislike cheap plastic container.
Marsk mineral eye shadow in "lucky penny" it is a very pretty color, sort of like a dirty old penny. I almost want keep this one, but I have a thing against messiness of powder shadows.... So wil have to say goodbye.
Lastly, I really dislike the pastel flower print bag!!! I like the quality of it (lined, soft), but the print is terrible in my opinion. I am honest to admit I buy Ipsy for the bags as I am obsessed with them, so it having a good bag is a huuuuuge let down for me.
So this month, I am underwhelmed by both subscription boxes. Birchbox at least had a nice shimmering blush, so I feel Birchbox is edging out a bit for me. In any event, could someone bring the February back please?!
Kinda thinking about unsubscribing both... Sigh. Aaaggghh.
