August Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox Box

August Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox Box | lookingjoligood.wordpress.comWhen you come home and your mail box looks like this, you know it is going to be an exciting day!  I subscribe to both Birchbox and Ipsy.

While I do think that the box’s design each month are really super cute,  I was not too impressed with my Birchbox samples this month.  Actually…I haven’t been too impressed with my Birchboxes at all lately, so I am pretty sure I am going to be canceling my subscription.  Several of my Birchbox samples have gone right into my give away to someone else box. I feel as if I can better spend $10 each month by picking out and purchasing my own beauty products.   All that being said, it is excited to find my mailbox overflowing with makeup and samples. 🙂

Here is what I got from Birchbox this month…August Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox Box |

  • Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser (I don’t really know what this stuff is really, a face wash…a mask…not sure)
  • Juicy Couture I am Juicy Couture perfume sample  (I hate perfume samples!)
    R+Co ATLANTIS Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner (these were both in foil packs…I hate foil packs!)
  • Harvey Prince Sea Salt Texturizing Mist (I have super straight hair, sea salt mist just makes my hair look dirty.)
  • Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream ​SPF 35+ (This should be a great sample, right?  I have heard so many great things about this brand.  Yeah, it was such a small teeny tiny sample that I couldn’t even cover my entire face with the CC cream, and I don’t even have a very big face.)
  • Multitasking crayons from LAQA & Co in the shade Humble Brag/blush pink (Ok, Finally something that I like.  The color is beautiful!  I wore it on my cheeks as blush and I loved it.  I found it to be a bit drying on my lips, but the shade is beautiful and a bit of lip balm helped with the dryness.)

My daughter gets very excited about seeing what the ipsy glam bag design is going to look like.  This month it is a black and white hounds tooth design with a pink zipper. She perfectly described it when she said that it feels just like duct tape.   Here is what I got in my ipsy bag this month…August Ipsy Glam Bag and Birchbox Box |

  • JUARA Skincare Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Facial Mask
  • Skone Cosmetics Luxe Doubler Eye/Lip Pencil in Wine Briogeo
  • Blossom & Bloom ™ Ginseng + Biotin Volumizer
  • noyah Natural Lipstick in the shade Desert Rose (it is a nice creamy beautiful light pink)
  • Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish in Elegantly Wasted (This is a beautiful lilac purple shade. Unfortunately for me, this one is going into the give away pile. I actually hate nail polish.  I get my toes done at the salon and never paint my finger nails at home.  Oh well, 4 out of 5 isn’t bad.)

How about you?   Do you get ipsy or Birchbox?  What did you get in yours?  Were you happy with your samples?  Do you get any monthly subscription boxes that are worth trying out?  Let me know in the comments below.
