(Back when I loved Ipsy)
I used to be such a huge fan of Ipsy, in most months I preferred it to Birchbox. I loved the full-size products! I loved the colors and shades! The lipsticks! The lipstains! The scrubs! Tools! They sent me make-up brushes! I loved it all! I even loved the make-up bags that came with the products each month.
Well, okay, I still like the make-up bags. And I use many of them to this day.
(this baby is in my purse right now)
Over time, I started to get really annoyed with the product repeats. And product similarities. How many black eyeliners do I really need to receive in one year? I got NYX pallettes, a few months apart that were so similar in shades that at first glance I thought it was the same exact pallette. It wasn’t; it was slighlty different shades of nudes/browns. It was disapointing though, since the basic concept of these services are to introduce you to new products.
I especially stopped liking Be a Bombshell line they insisted on sending almost every month. Even though I constantly downgraded those products. I once complained about a mascara I received from Bombshell and I asked Ipsy to please stop sending products from this line. They still continued to send them. Finally, after a few months of not liking any product in my Ipsy bags, I decided to cancel the service. It was a little sad because it was my first beauty box subscription that I was ditching.
I am still receiving Birchbox, and I may go back to Ipsy at some point. I have also been considering cancelling Birchbox and getting into the more expensive monthlies that guarantee full-sized products. However, Birchbox has introduced me to some really amazing products that I ended up purchasing. Some have become my staples, one of which is the Living Proof Dry Shampoo.
Time will tell!
So to date I tried:
Julep – cancelled
Birchbox – still active
Have any of you guys cancelled your beauty box service?
