YellowBoxBeauty.com - Every month they focus on a particular brand and you get full size retail products. Prices start at $35 plus $8 shipping. The reason I didn't choose this particular box was because the price and I want to try products from multiple brands, not just one. Maybe I will try this one at some point, but it was a little more than I wanted to spend at this point.
TestTube.NewBeauty.com - This company sends you samples 4 times a year. They send samples plus a magazine which is a nice touch. The cost is $30 plus $9 shipping (I swear when I originally looked it was closer to $50 total, maybe they are having special?). You get to write reviews about the products that you try. This one really appealed to me, but the fact that they only come out 4 times a year was kind of a turn off. This might be great for someone one a strict budget!
Glymm.com - I just found out about this website. Seems like they have some really nice products, but it's really similar to BirchBox.
MakeupMonthly Pros and Cons:
- Flat $30
- Brands I wanted to try: MAC, Urban Decay, Cargo, Nars, Etc.
- Choice of nails, cosmetics or skin care
- No extra charge for shipping
- Store isn't open just yet
- I'm not sure if the products I'm getting are old or not
- Tips and Tricks don't always apply to what I'm doing
- Questionnaire isn't all that great.
I'm excited to see what I get next month and I'm hoping that I will get more products that are relevant to me. At this point I want to try a different makeup subscription and I'm really considering Test Tube. I've read the New Beauty magazine and I really like it.
