Ipsy VS Birchbox- June!

Hi! Wow, I have been gone a while. Well maybe not that long, but it feels like forever! Don’t we all just hit road bumps sometimes? (…or should I say writer’s block!) For this blog I want to show you how Ipsy and Birchbox did for the month of June! *Disclaimer* June is my least favorite thus far…wah wah! I must say this month’s subscription were lacking that pizzazz!

Lets start with Ipsy!

I must say this bag is pretty bleak…not real exciting. This kind of makes me crinkle my noise up because I am not impressed!

Now, this card is more what I am talking about! Fun, bold, and summery! It is June people of Ipsy! LOL!

A great color and brand to sample, but it is itty bitty!

I am so picky about lotions and Ipsy got it right for this sample! If I am slathering something on that is going to absorb into my body, only good ingredients please! I am very excited to try this!

When I opened this I was hesitant…a eye shadow crayon? I must say I tried it and I am impressed. It is very versatile and so is the color! I would consider this a full size sample, which is also a huge plus!

Another full size sample! Yay! This turquoise eye liner is beautiful and perfect for a summer themed bag!
SMASHBOX!!! Okay okay,  I am biased on this one because I LOVE IT! What a great sample. This primer actually works and it is a high end brand so I am a happy camper with this sample. I will say that the only con is that it is a small sample.

Now, lets talk about Birchbox!

I am very pleased with the look of this box! The theme is adventure and it is cute!

This is a really neat sample! It is a mini palette sample! How cute! I love that you get the actually feel for the palette instead of just one color. It is a teeny tiny sample, but I have a feeling it will still last quite a while.

I have heard about Micro Water through other bloggers and was very curious! I was very glad to receive this sample. Dr. Jart is  a great brand which also makes the sample more appealing. The con is this sample is also pretty small.

I am not crazy about hair samples as stated many time, but this Mango shampoo and conditioner is the perfect scent for a summer box!

This picture is also courtesy of the Birchbox website because for a moment my mind escaped me! I also deleted my picture of this sample. It was more than a sample it was an actual  Pura Vida Lace headband in a super cute orange shade! This was a great bonus sample!

My final thoughts! This month featured great samples for the month! I cannot complain there! My biggest reasons for not loving this months subscriptions is the Ipsy bag was boring and I received mainly VERY small samples. I know that these are sample boxes, but I guess I am spoiled because most month’s samples are BIG to FULL SIZE, which of course I love! I hope this helped you figure out if you are team Ipsy or team Birchbox…or maybe like me- team both! Xoxo
