I may cancel Ipsy in favor of Boxycharm. Plus, May 2015 spoilers!

I may have to cancel Ipsy in favor of boxycharm. I have been pretty underwhelmed with the world of Ipsy as of late. I still get a product or two I like, but it's almost always in such a minuscule size that I can't keep convincing my rational brain paying $10 is worth it. Sure, I love getting two makeup surprises a month, but I'm on a budget here and I have to be picky....yet I can't seem to quit it! 

Back to Boxycharm. This beauty subscription box is seriously blowing me away with their generous FULL size products and the quality is usually amazing. They are also in tune with the fact we all want things universal or contoured to our personal preference, skintone  etc. Unlike most other beauty boxes. Especially Ipsy.  They also  give you 4-6 products and they are ALL full size, friends. 

April's Boxycharm entailed This:

I was ECSTATIC for this revealed palette. That pretty much made up for the $22 price of the box. The highlighter and bronzer 4 in one I really love as well. It is amazing for brow and cheek bones. These colors or so beautiful and pigmented. I've been looking for an affordable array of mattes and this palette has quite a few I love. I have been using every single product in this box, on the daily. Boxycharm hasn't repeated itself once, whereas Ipsy has several times or given very similar products. 

Ipsy's April bag entailed this: 

I am going to hang onto Ipsy, but these teeny weeny samples are getting a little ridiculous. I just don't know how long I can justify the cost. The nail color isn't bad, but I do have that color already. The eye primer I have been using quite a bit. The blush I used once and the dry shampoo. I have so many dry shampoos now though. This is actually better than most. The bag was pretty cute this month. I don't know, I can't help but think that i'd be better off putting $10 towards Boxycharm or a nice lunch. 

Enough of that. I haven't even gotten to the most exciting part, the spoilers for May's Boxycharm! They are outstanding. They only give 3 spoilers and the rest is for you to be surprised with, which I kinda love. I don't think we really truly deep down want to know everything we are getting! It's just that we have no willpower!  So anyway, without further adieu....


Bodyography Professional Cosmetics Essential Brow Trio $19 value    I am so excited about this and it is for every shade of brow! Boxcharm always makes everything so universal, which that makes them awesome in and of itself, but they're awesome for many other reasons.
Bodyography Professional Cosmetics Double-Ended Brow Brush $19 value  Of course the brow brush to go along with it!
The LipBar Lipstick $20 value  I've never tried this company, but they have normal as well as daring colors. I hope I get a nice pink for the summer! 

What's so special about BOXYCHARM?

And you won't be disappointed. This I can be sure of. You can cancel at any time and I don't believe there is a waiting list like Ipsy. You will be amazed at what you get for $21!   That includes shipping!
