Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I'm thinking of subscribing to at least Ipsy and possibly Birchbox.

 

Anybody have any preferences, likes/dislikes, recommendations?

 

Are there others?

 

Thanks. Smiley Happy

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I'm subscribed to Ipsy and Beautybox5... with Ipsy, I joined at the end of August/beginning of September - and i'm still on the waitlist.

But from what i hear, Ipsy is awesome.

 

with Beautybox5, i've paid for 2 boxes and have recieved none.

Haven't heard much about this one.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I get ipsy & really like it. it allows me to try products I'd never buy myself. Some I like & others are not impressive. It's fun though 

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I have ipsy & love it. check out eleventhgorgeous ipsy vs birch box to get an idea of what you get each month

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I am really happy with Wantable.  It's more ($36/month), but it's more customizable and you get larger products.  You get 4-5 full-sized products per month.  They are usually smaller, newer brands, though.  But the customization is terrific.  You have the choice of 'love'--send me that a lot, 'like'--send me that sometimes, and 'dislike'--don't ever send me that.  And you can rank the types of things (blush, lips, eyes, mascara, eyeliner, tools, bronzers, etc), the type within each category (liquid eyeliner, pencil, ... lip gloss, lip stick, lip stain ...), and even colors for each type (neutrals, bright colors, etc).  Also, it's make-up only--no skin care, no hair care.  You get $10 off your box if you refer a friend and they subscribe.  Oh, and you can skip a box and even return a box if you hate it all.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I am thinking of joining Wantables after I saw you mention it once before - you should PM me the code or link so you can get credit for referring me if I join Smiley Very Happy! Someone might as well get something, and I wouldn't have known about it if you didn't tell me!  Not sure yet if I will subscribe, but thinking about it.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I initially subscribed to Birchbox.  I found that I was disappointed that I mostly got foil samples, just like what we can get at checkout at Sephora. I canceled Birchbox.

 

I am currently subscribed to ipsy.  I like it better.  The sample sizes seem to be a little bigger.  

 

I subscribed to QVC test tube.  The items are much higher $ amount, but it also costs more than the other two.

 

 

 

 

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I agree birchbox was disappointing, ipsy is better 

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

There is popsugar must have witch is pretty good but they are going up in the price next month. E.LF. has a box that's bi- monthly (8 weeks instead of 4) thats 19.99 + shipping

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I received a subscription to Glossybox. The first month was AMAZING!!!!

 

The box is so beautiful, I've kept and reused every one. The packaging is the best I have ever seen, and each box has full-size  products and some deluxe samples.

 

However, after the initial impression subsided, the brands aren't very nice nor are they products that I would ever buy. Last month I received a bronzer from a company that has gone out of business--what if I had liked it? How useless!

 

But to repeat, I love the boxes so much that I wish I had more! If anyone has theirs, I would love to have them!

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I tried Glossybox, but I really wasn't impressed.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

birchbox at the end of the year you have basically earned 70$ in points so if you can look past the foil packs its pretty cool! I think I will re-subsribe to them soon. I have Ipsy and JUST learned about the points (kinda lame points) BUT the bags are pretty and nice.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

Check out Beautybar's Allure Sample Society! I haven't been impressed with Ipsy lately, and will probably cancel soon. 

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I really really like Sample Society.  It's pretty high end stuff, and I've found some total gems through the service.  Plus you get $15 off a $50 order as long as you order one of the brands featured.  I think that's a great deal.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I love Sample Society!

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I used to subscribe to Birchbox but cancelled and switched to Ipsy. Birchbox sent me lot of skincare and foil samples but Im more interested in makeup. I've been happy with Ipsy. The only thing I miss about Birchbox is their point system. You get points for every product from your box that you review and in the past I was able to get full size products using the points!

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I used to be subscribed to birchbox and ipsy but now i know how bad it gets for bb, so im sticking with ipsy. 

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I always do ipsy unboxing on my youtube (username is txmommyofboys) and this month I did the wantable box! Check it out to see what all I got!

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I love your unboxing videos! You are too cute! might have to get ipsy, thank you

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I was with Ipsy for a while, but when I googled the items, they were usually things you could pick up at Walgreens. 

 

The whole point of the sample, to me, is to give you a little bit of something expensive to help you decide if you want to buy the item. Giving me a sample of a $3 item and making me pay for it doesn't really excite me.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

That's how I feel. You get larger products, but that's because they're cheap... while Birchbox you might get smaller ones, but they're higher quality brands.

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I have both Ipsy and Birchbox and definitely feel like I get more of my money's worth with Ipsy. Not only do you get bigger samples of things (some even full size), you get a cute little reusable bag every month!

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

Anybody done Julep?

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I get julep I like it lately I have been upgrading lol 

Re: Ipsy? Birchbox? Glossybox?

I received my first Julep box today. I'm really happy with it. They give you the option to add on some extra items at 50% off each month and I did that. 

 

I got my first Sample Society box last week and I'm also happy with that. Still on the waitlist for Ipsy and it won't let me connect with my Facebook to skip the waitlist for some reason. I'm also on the waitlist for Birchbox for men for my husband.
