Whether you’re a beginner when it comes to using makeup or you’re already a makeup enthusiast, subscribing to beauty boxes is always a good idea. In case you haven’t heard of this, a beauty box subscription basically is like any other type of subscription. You pay a certain amount each month and in return, a box filled with goodies gets delivered to your door. These boxes often contain samples of the latest makeup products so you get to try them out and see whether or not you like them before actually buying the full sized one. Beauty box subscriptions can range anywhere from $10 to $50. Of course, the more you pay, the more you get quality– and quantity-wise. Here are 5 awesome beauty boxes to subscribe to. Check them out and see which ones would work for you.
- Ipsy – the Ipsy beauty box subscription has been raved about by so many beauty enthusiasts. For only $10 every month, you can expect to get a bag full of goodies from makeup, skin care and other beauty products. What’s great about the Ipsy glam bag is that it has full size and deluxe size products most of the time and the products you get are of really good quality and some are even from the biggest names in the beauty market so at $10, it really is a steal. If you were to buy the products in an Ipsy glam bag individually, it would cost you anywhere from $40 to $60. Plus, every month you get a cute bag/pouch where your products are stashed into. That’s an added bonus!
- Julep Maven – this beauty box subscription is quite pricey at $19.99 a month (add anywhere from $30 to $55 for the upgrade) but you do get what you pay for. Julep makes their own products and you can expect to get a few new nail polishes every month plus some beauty products too. With Julep, you have the option to choose which box you would like to receive and you can also upgrade your subscription for the month in case you’d like to avail of the full collection featured. Unlike most subscription boxes, Julep lets you skip some months if you don’t see anything you like from the month’s collection. It’s a great and flexible subscription that you should definitely try, especially if you’re obsessed with nail polish!
- Birchbox – what sets Birchbox beauty boxes apart from others is that it doesn’t only cater to women but to men as well. At only $10 a month, you get sample size beauty and lifestyle products. Some months, you get full size products, too! It all depends on what else is in your box. Every Birchbox comes with a card that guides you about the contents of your box, what it is and how to use it. Your products also come in a cute little box that you can reuse for storage.
- Glossybox – if you’re the kind of makeup enthusiast who likes to just try out high end products then Glossybox is definitely for you. For $21 a month, you get to receive full size and deluxe size products from high end brands as well as some brands from the UK that aren’t easily available in the US. This box lets you experience high end products without breaking the bank. Of course, you can always splurge on another tube / bottle / pack of any product from the box that you really liked. Each box also comes with a card that shows you what the product is, how to use it and what the retail price is.
