{Birchbox vs Ipsy Glam Bag}

Birchbox teamed up with Women's Health for the April box. Below are the products I received:

Caudalie Divine Oil -

Vitivia Vitamin capsules -

Nexxus® Youth Renewal™ Rejuvenating Elixir -

Mirenesse Glossy Kiss -

Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-on -

 My thoughts on this box....eh, it's okay. I like the texture of the Glossy Kiss, but bright red? I could never pull that off. As for the vitamins, there aren't enough there to make a difference or to see if they are effective for me. And at $55 for 28 capsules? No thanks! I'm excited about the Revitalizing Eye Roll on. I have huge dark circles under my eyes. It doesn't matter if I get 4 or 14 hours of sleep, they're always there. I'm also excited about the Nexus hair stuff! 

 Products I received:

Big Sexy Hair - Powder Play - 

Sation Nail Lacquer in the shade of Of Corset I'll Call You - 

MicaBeauty - Mineral Eyeshadow in the shade of Earth -  

Be A Bombshell Blush in the shade of Sweet Cheeks - 

My thoughts....LOVE! Ipsy for the win! First of all, can we talk about how cute that bag is? You had me at pink! The nail polish is the perfect shade of ballerina pink. It seemed to strenghthen my nails too! And the blush...I've been looking for a shimmery pink blush and this one is perfect. I haven't tried the eyeshadow yet, but the shade is gorgeous. And who doesn't love Big Sexy Hair products?

 Every month I am disappointed by Birchbox. There's usually only 1 product that I like whereas with the IPSY I love almost everything and actually use it. But, I keep holding out on cancelling Birchbox. I guess I just have hopes that it will get better

Do you get the Birchbox or Ipsy Glam bag? Which do you prefer?

In case you missed it...I have a Scentsy bar giveaway going on over here

I was not compensated by BIrchbox or Ipsy for this post. All opinions are my own.


  1. I seriously need to get on this birchbox bandwagon!

    PS - tagged you in my post today Mama! Have a great weekend!

  2. Yes, Ipsy for the win!!! I think I will send you my BB platform so you could get some better boxes. My boxes were never like that! What the world!?

    Love you beautiful!

  3. My Birchbox for this month was even worse then yours! Instead of the nexxus and eye roller thingy you got I got yoga towelettes-ummm no thanks. Lol and after I opened my box, I cancled! Haha. Ill eventually try ipsy someday!

  4. Have you tried updating your preferences with Birchbox? I heard that makes a difference sometimes. I've been getting Birchbox for 2 months & I got my first Ipsy bag last week. I got a different bag b/c it didn't meet their standards, but everything else was the same....so far Ipsy is winning for me too just because of the type/price practicality of the products! Great review! :)

  5. Definately IPSY for the win. Awesome stuff. I have never heard of IPSY. I need to check it out. Thanks for sharing!
