Beauty in the Box or a Bag!!

Have you joined the Beauty Box craze?? Or Beauty Bag?? About a year ago, I joined Birchbox and began receiving their fun little boxes of beauty supplies once a month. I recently joined Ipsy, and today my first Ipsy Glam Bag arrived. I thought I would share what I found in my Birchbox and Glam Bags this month. If you are interested, the pics will take you to their sites!

In my Birchbox, I found: 
Juicy Couture-Viva La Juicy Fragrance (.5 FL. OZ.) Retail $ 90 for 3.4 OZ ($ 13)
My-Multi-Purpose Mattifying Moisturizer (.3 FL. OZ) Retail $ 68 for 2 OZ ($ 10)
Frownies-Eye Gels (one reusable pack) Retail $ 29.95 for 3 reusable sets ($ 10)
Frownies-Rose Water Hydrator Spray Travel Size  Retail $ 5
The Balm Cosmetics-Put a Lid On It Eyelid Primer (.125 FL. OZ) Retail $ 18 for Full Size ($ 7)

Total Retail $ 45, and I got it all for $10. 

Love these backgrounds and frames!
Lots of thanks to my friend, Marie at The Hands-on Teacher in First
and Mr. Magician, respectively
 
 The Birchbox Breakdown:
I would not really consider myself a Juicy Couture girl, but this fragrance smells incredible!

I plan to try the moisturizer but will not buy the full size because it is $68. Ouch! 

I have heard great things about Frownies and can't wait to try these!
I should get 4 uses out of this box.


I'm looking forward to using the rosewater with the gel pads!
I might just be a new Frownies customer!


Finally, I adore The Balm Cosmetics! I will use the eyelid primer for sure!



In my Ipsy Glam Bag, I found:
Nailtini Polish in Frappe - Retail price $ 13
Josie Maran-Argan Oil vile - Retail $ 14
London SoHo-Crease Brush - Retail $ 8.99
Big Sexy Hair-Travel Size Hair Spray - Retail $ 6
Pacifica-Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter Travel Size - Retail $ 7 

Total Retail $ 48.99, and I got it all for $10.

The Glam Bag Breakdown
 I'm so excited about my first Glam Bag!! I will seriously use ALL of these items!

The polish is the perfect neutral, and I wear neutrals on my hands.
 

I can't wait to try out the Argan oil! One of those miracle oils?? We'll see!!
Everyone needs a new make-up brush, and Big Sexy Hair-Yay!!
Lastly, this body butter smells heavenly and feels great!
This Glam Bag gets an A+ for sure! 

FYI: For every purchase you make at Birchbox, you earn points to use on future orders! I'm not sure yet if Ipsy does that. 

I absolutely love getting little treats in the mail, and these two beauty finds are so much fun! Thanks for taking a break from school to talk beauty boxes! Now, what are you waiting for??

  3. Oh my goodness Laura
    I NEED to do this. I have some products I love that I receive from QVC but need to get these too. I really love the bag because I think I could share it with my daughter.
