Birchbox Vs. Ipsy’s Glam Bag

As you know, here at Stalking Beauty we have an addiction to all things Beauty (one of them being cosmetics).  Since we got turned on to beauty box subscriptions by our lovely and fellow blogger friend Must Have Boxes, we just can’t get enough of them.  Last month, we received our first Birchbox, and we wrote a review of their products so we decided to take on a new subscription to Ipsy’s Glam Bag which we are simply in love with!

Here is why:

Birchbox

Pros:

  • $10 monthly subscription
  • Different monthly beauty product samples
  • Point system: you get 10 Points for every review, 1 point for every $1 you spend on your purchase, and you get $10 for every 100 points
  • Special Offers
  • Products delivered in a nice box

Cons:

  • No cute reusable cosmetic bag
  • No full-sized products
  • Subscription addiction

Our April subscriptions were full of great products, our favorites for this month are:

StriVectin-SD Eye Concentrate for Wrinkles (Birchbox)- Helped with my dark circles.

Weleda Body Lotion (Birchbox)- smells so good and leaves your skin moisturized.

Be A Bombshell Blush (Glambag)- A nice touch of pink on the cheeks.

Sation Nail Lacquer (Ipsy Glambag)– Light pink neutral soft color that makes your hands look dainty and pretty.

Sexy Hair Soy Renewal (Ipsy Glambag)- It made my hair look shiny and smooth and tamed all my frizz!
