Good morning Thursday!
Today I’m dedicating this post to two of my favorite Monthly Subscriptions.
Now-a-days you can get a monthly subscription for just about anything; food, wine, socks, toys, clothes, but my personal favorite being Make-Up.
I love these little kits more than anything. Not only is it like Christmas every month but the contents is what really gets me excited. I’m not much of a “go out and buy make up” kind of girl because first of all, its expensive and secondly I don’t really know what the heck to get. So with these cool subscriptions you get to test a little bit of everything! Total Win.
So for $10/month each I subscribe to
PLAY by Sephora and IPSY Glam Bags
Here’s a little run down if you don’t already know.
PLAY by Sephora
I favor this one just a teeny tiny bit more solely because I’m more familiar with the brands of the products they send.
So all you have to do it go to Sephora.com and under SHOP CATEGORIES you’ll find SUBSCRIPTION BOX and from there the rest is in your hands. Upon signing up you fill out a quick survey so they can get to know you, your skin, hair type, and a few other things.
The only catch is, I’m not sure if there is a wait list. I know I was wait-listed for a good 2 months before I got my first box but the wait is so worth it. And they DO NOT charge you until you’re off the wait-list. I just recently got Evelyn (Andrew’s sister in law) to sign up and they didn’t say anything about being wait-listed.
Anyways, every month you get this in the mail! And inside you get a beautiful pouch with all the contents inside… Here is an example of the one in February. This was my first one! And they give you a cute little cheat sheet of the stuff inside: what it is, how to use it, when to use it, etc. This was March’s bagAnd here it is all laid outThese were/still are some of my favorite products that I got from my previous kits. I’d say I love and use 4/5 products from every box.
If you love make-up, if you love Sephora, or both I highly suggest signing up!
IPSY Glam Bags
Ipsy works the same way, they send you 5 products and for these there’s a 50/50 chance that I’ve heard of the brands. The one thing I really like about Ipsy opposed to Sephora is that in their survey upon signing up it’s just so much more specific in regards to your beauty preference. It really helps narrow down your needs and wants. To sign up just head over to Ipsy.com create an account and the rest is in your hands! No wait to be signed up!
Then every month, viola! This pretty pink package! With every package you get a new make-up bag which I LOVE! You cannot have too many make-up bags. Well maybe you can, but I think it’s nice that they send the make up in these bags and they’re actually really good quality and super cute!
My personal favorites so far have been the January one (not shown above), February, and this month’s May bag.
So prior to receiving your bag you will get an email that lets you see what’s in your Glam Bag for the month. I get so excited that the anticipation practically kills me! And then,
It shows you everything you get and when you click LEARN MORE it tells/shows you what it is, how to use it, and all that fun stuff. This was my May Glam Bag. Like I mentioned above they will send you things according to YOUR beauty preference survey so what you get will not always be the same as someone else’s.
So for me my monthly bag is a hit or miss. I could like 4/5 things or maybe 2/5 things. But I always rather get one than not. Some of my favorite things in the past…
The one product that I always love when they send it to me are their blushes! I think they sent me 2 others and I used them all till they’re practically gone.
So that’s the Ipsy Glam Bag. Again, if you love make-up or need cute make up bags then sign on up! 😉
