Birchbox vs. Ipsy (December 2013)

If you are having the internal debate about which beauty box to get I am here to help! In the next few months I will be ordering more beauty boxes to review, to find out which one is the best of the best.

For now I subscribe to Birchbox and Ipsy.

Birchbox was definitely the quickest to get. I signed up for both Birchbox and Ipsy on the same day in November, and received my first Birchbox in November! December was my first Ipsy bag. For each they require a waiting period but if you are willing to share to your Facebook friends you can skip the waiting period and start right away.

Birchbox Review:

Firstly, I adore the boxes these come in. They will definitely be great for wrapping presents in when needed or whatever other little ideas pop into my head. The products in the Birchbox have all been fun so far, and they are wide range of things every month, which I really like.

For December I received:

Hair Texture

Perfume Sample

Moisturizer

Lipstick

Celly Screen Cleaner

Hair Tie

Ipsy Review:

I love that these come in such a girlie package. It is definitely a great clue of what’s inside!

For December I received:

Eyeshadow

Lipstick Crayon

Blush Stick

Eyeshadow Brush

Nail Polish

And of course a cute little makeup bag.

For me so far they are a tie. I don’t know if it is how I set up each account or the way that they normally are but Ipsy seems to be more makeup oriented and Birchbox is beauty products, make up and other little randoms.
