Back again for my July battle of the beauty subs.
Every month Birchbox provides a curated box of beauty, grooming, and/or lifestyle samples for $10/month. You can either pick 2/5 samples per month or choose a guest editor box with all products chosen by the editor. They also have a point system that translates to cash for purchases online or at the Birchbox store. A beauty profile questionnaire is available to better suite your interests. It can be purchased yearly or gifted. You can subscribe to Birchbox here https://www.birchbox.com/invite/vs11p
Every month Ipsy provides 5 full-size or deluxe sample products in a cute little travel size makeup bag for $10/month. They also provide a beauty quiz to tailor your needs. There is a wait list but they provide opportunities to skip it. It can be purchased yearly, but due to the wait list it cannot be gifted.

Summary: I was really excited to receive Stila’s Liquid matte and theBalm bronzer from Birchbox, however I have been really bummed with all the sunscreen and Supergoop products lately. Now Ipsy really outdid themselves this month! The bag itself was super cute and I loved every single item in it. I actually can’t live without the Jersey Shore lip conditioner and I’m not typically a bronzy girl but the Tarte bronzer was toned down to the perfect shade for me. Ipsy has it hands down for July!
Side Note: I just saw the Birchbox sample reveal for August and I can say, without a doubt, that it will be tough for Ipsy to compete with that!
