Birchbox, Boxycharm, and ipsy: November 2015

Hello friends!

Sorry that this post is so late, but I had to rearrange my schedule a bit in order to write everything I want to write but only post twice a week instead of three times like I used to.

You might be thinking, why don’t you go back to three times a week then? Well, for starters, I don’t want to do that and then end up struggling (again) to write three times a week, and I figured that I can start writing extra posts when the inspiration strikes to schedule while I’m out of the country, since I don’t think I’ll have much time or want to work on the blog while I’m in Chile with my family for six weeks!

Also, it was my birthday! So yeah, that’s a good enough excuse, right?

I’m writing this at least a week in advance, which I don’t normally tell you guys about, but I’m so proud of myself for being ahead of the game that I couldn’t help but brag!

But anyway, we’re getting a little off-track here.


This wasn’t the best month for beauty subscriptions for me, but overall, there were enough items in each one that I loved or was excited for. Looking at them now, I don’t think any box particularly stood out more than the others, so I don’t think I’ll have a favorite this month. But let’s go through them, shall we?


My Birchbox this month came with the following items:

  • theBalm Cosmetics FratBoy shadow/blush.
  • Dr. Lipp Miracle Balm.
  • Christie Brinkley daily facial exfoliating polish.
  • Templespa La La Lagoon bath and shower gel.
  • Rusk texture spray.

Not too crazy about any of the items, but I’m willing to try everything except for the blush, which I just don’t have any need for.


This month, my ipsy had these for me:

  • Figs & Rouge Mattifying Emulsion and Pore Refiner.
  • Mai Couture Makeup Paper travel blush in Montecito.
  • Smashbox full exposure mascara.
  • Bdellium Tools blending brush 776.
  • INSPR Beauty eyeshadow in Carnival.

I’m going to need ipsy, Birchbox AND Boxycharm to please stop sending me so much mascara that I have no idea what to do with is. PLEASE.


Lastly, my Boxycharm came with:

  • Coolway leave-in treatment.
  • Pur-lisse eye serum.
  • Studio Makeup blush in Sahara.
  • Manna priming gloss stain in All of Me.
  • Luxie concealer brush 211.

If I absolutely had to pick a favorite, it would probably be this one, but that’s just because of the lip gloss (and probably the brush as well). I’m keeping the eye serum and the leave-in treatment because I’m down to give them a shot, but the blush is going to Savannah once I finally get around to sending her care package!

So that’s everything I got this month! Not the best month, but I’m not too disappointed either. What did you get this month?

  1. Such gorgeous products!! I feel the same way about the mascara -it comes literally every month in all the subscriptions! lol And eyeliner, too! I even set up my accounts to say I don’t want mascara or eyeliner and it still manages to find its way into every bag I receive! haha #MakeupProbz
