Makeup Subscriptions: ipsy and Birchbox

I think it’s safe to say most girls like to feel pretty. Many of us ladies like to put makeup on to either enhance our features or cover up our “flaws” but some of don’t. Some of us cannot leave the house without putting at least a little bit of makeup on and some of us couldn’t care any less.

I, sometimes regrettably, am one of those women who needs makeup to feel pretty. Not only to hide my dark circles under my eyes but to also make me feel more confident and pretty. I wear it for myself and no once else.

Whether it’s concealer, lip gloss or eyeshadow, I love it all. I can’t get enough of it. I can’t even walk into a store without looking at the makeup, even if what I am going to the store for is at the opposite end, I will somehow justifiably make my way to the makeup isles and gaze at it in all it’s glory like a kid in a candy store. But I don’t buy things EVERY time I look at them. This is mainly because I have monthly subscriptions to feed that need.

I have been subscribed to a couple of beauty subscriptions for about four years now; Birchbox and Ipsy. If you are unfamiliar with these companies, you should check them out. They are both beauty subscriptions that are $10 a month. Birchbox will send you approximately five samples every month. You can also review the samples you receive to earn points. The points can be redeemed on towards any purchase you make on Birchbox’s website. You can also earn bonus points w/ certain purchases and for referals. Ipsy will send you 4-5 deluxe samples (sometimes full sized items) every month with a super cute makeup bag. Ipsy also allows you to review the items you received to earn point towards select products. They also have a referral program where you can earn beauty products for your referrals. I’ll include the link below for these services.
