Birchbox and Ipsy!!!

I am posting this a little early this month!! If you haven’t tried Birchbox or Ipsy please feel free to join via my links, I get points on Birchbox and might get something extra from Ipsy.

First my two Birchbox’s I didn’t film it this month mainly because I have been dealing with some issues. but here’s what I got in both my boxes!

Box 1:

I’ve gotten these tea bags before and I really like them, so I was actually happy to get them. I know a lot of people don’t like tea in their boxes but I love love love tea and enjoy trying new ones.

Beauty Protector- Protect and Detangle. I was so excited to get this! I was envying other people’s Birchbox’s last month and so far I really like this! I might even get a full sized one!

Usually I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting polish in my birchbox but this one was kind of a disappointment. Supposedly this polish is going to change colors when you go outside, it is activated by uv rays, either I didn’t get hit with a SINGLE uv ray or mine just didn’t work Sad smile 

This was taken after 8 hours in the sun Sad smile but it is a pretty pink color. it is in the shade peony, if you got it in your birchbox and it worked what did you do? How many coats, top coat etc.?

Fabulous but Isaac Mizrahi – was not so fabulous in my opinion… just not a smell I liked.

Then on to something I got in BOTH Birchboxes

Coola Sunscreen-moisturizer. In the cucumber smell. I liked them, not sure how good a moisturizer they were, as I used them with my other moisturizer and serum but I loved the SPF and they smelt good too!

Birchbox 2:

The coola sunscreen of course.

A foil pouch of Miss Jessie’s Jelly soft curls, which I was a little disappointed in because it dried out before I could use it more than once, and the last time I got a Miss Jessie’s product it can in a mini travel sized container and I loved it…

Marvis toothpaste, I’ve gotten this before and it is meh, it’s toothpaste it works but I use crest and it works the same for less money. Toothpaste is not an area where I splurge.

Cargo Water Resistant Blush in Bali- this was my disappointment this month… I was so freaking excited when I saw I would be getting this in my birchbox but the cover came off and the next item gouged and crushed the blush beyond saving during shipping.

Birchbox’s customer service is amazing though, they gave me 100 point credit as soon as I emailed them about the blush which is 10 so basically my box was free.

and finally

 

Now I am a pen hoarder I love them, and this one writes in pink! But it is something that while I would buy it for myself I don’t want it in a beauty box.

Now for my first ever Ipsy bag!

Yaby Concealer refill in Buff, not bad but not quite my shade it is to yellow/dark for me and not dark enough for contour, plus it came open and it dried out pretty fast.

Ipsy made my day with this, even though I already bought it for myself I sent this one to my little sister for her birthday! A full sized Zoya polish in Jacqueline! (named after me!)

Mirabella LipSheer in Daydream. I thought I wasn’t going to like it but the color is sheer enough to make the purple lipstick look good!

This I am still on the fence about this is a Juice Beauty Lip-gloss in champagne, it smells like lemons, but is super thick and reminds me of the lip smackers lip glosses I had a kid, stick and thick and goopy.

I love Pacifica products and this is a nice lotion, it is supposed to be a self tanner… umm not to much with the tan but it is a nice lotion and a yummy coconut smell!

 

What did you get in your subscription? Do you get Birchbox or Ipsy? Do you like them?

I wish I had the $ to do Birchbox. That polish is so pretty.

I have thought about doing those subscription boxes, but I am just not sure they are worth the money. Plus we are trying to save money.

Lucky! Your Birchboxes didn't contain any toothpaste. :)
