Beauty Boxes

I think by now you'll all know that I love trying new beauty products. I love finding fun new things and experimenting with different colors and types of products. But buying new makeup whenever I like the look of something can get expensive pretty fast. Which is why I decided a few months ago to try beauty subscription boxes. They've been a great way for me to get a taste of a whole bunch of products at a small cost. I've loved having new things to try every month. So I thought I'd share which boxes I've been trying and what I've thought of them.

My September Birchbox

Birchbox is a monthly box, it costs $10 a month and gives you 5 full size or deluxe sample products. I love Birchbox because it's introduced me to the most new brands. Most of the brands I'd never heard of before, and never would have thought to try. I've been really happy with most of the products I've got, and have even repurchased a couple of them. So if you're looking to try out new brands and products, I'd definitely suggest this beauty box. 

My September Ipsy Bag

Ipsy beauty boxes are monthly boxes, also $10, and come with 5 deluxe samples or full size products. Ipsy carries a lot of brands that I'm already familiar with, which is great because it allows me to try out products that were already on my wishlist. Each month all the products arrive in a cute makeup bag, which is a great bonus item, and is perfect for traveling. I've also gotten a couple makeup brushes in the box, and I've loved both of them. If you like stores like Sephora or Ulta, but don't like to spend a ton of money on new products, this would be a great beauty box to try.

My Summer Walmart box

The Walmart beauty box is a seasonal box, meaning there's a spring, summer, fall, and winter box. It's only $5, and I got 7 samples in my summer box (I forgot to include the Burt's Bees lipstick in the picture). I got a little bit of everything- skincare, haircare, makeup. It's a fun little sampling of products, and the lipstick alone made it well worth the cost. 

So those are the boxes I've been trying for the past few months. I've really liked getting a sampling of new things to try every month, and I've even found some new favorites from it. So if you're like me and have about a two second attention span with makeup products, I think you'd find these really fun as well.
