So I am sad to say that my Ipsy subscription will be coming to an end next month. I love this subscription, but with my wedding just a short 5 months away, I need to focus on saving and starting my life (finances and all) with another person. Funny thing, last month was actually suppose to be my last month, but since the website wouldn’t let me cancel and I didn’t notice till after I received my bag I am finishing it off in December. I want to thank the @IpsyCare twitter account as they helped me finalize the cancellation and gave me 1 month complimentary as an early “wedding gift”. Seriously, how sweet is that!
Like I said before, I love Ipsy and I’m sad to be leaving them for now, but every penny counts when saving for a wedding. 🙂 If you are thinking about joining Ipsy, I would highly suggest it if you love all things beauty! They are a monthly beauty and makeup subscription bag. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a super cute makeup bag.
This month’s theme was “Girl Meets Glitter” and the bag sure met that theme!
So, I think I really like picking what is in my Birchbox every month. I do sometimes like the surprise sometimes, but it’s fun knowing what you’ll be getting. I know, I’m kinda bad like that, but I’ve always been like that since I was little. I really hate waiting for Christmas, because I like to plan what I’m going to do with my presents. 😛

One of the boxes you could choose from was the (red) box which has products from companies that make donations to charities. It was a box full of great things all for a great cause. This month’s Birchbox, I choose the Guest Editor box which is a “Happy Holiday Hacks” Box from BuzzFeed Life.
Time for another Influenster VoxBox Review. This time I got the #ModaVoxBox which had 8 full sized products. All these products had to go with renewal of some sort. I will go into more below, but if you want to sign up for Influenster, leave your email address below and I will send you an invite to join this awesome company to get products to review and talk about.
I did receive these products free for testing purposes, but opinions are my own.
So last month I decided to stop my subscription with Ipsy to try something new and I decided on Nature Box. Some of my friends have tried it and said it was okay so I had to give it a try myself. What attracted me most to it was that it’s very customizable and a good value. Another neat thing is that they only use natural ingredients. If you avoid certain foods in your diet, you will love that you can preview the ingredients before you pick snacks and search for snacks that follow your dietary needs before you pick your 5 for the month (or you can be surprised). And I have to mention that the sized are VERY generous! So generous, that most of the bags have a serving size of 3-4. It’s so worth the 19.95 cost.
Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription bag. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a super cute makeup bag. I am sad to say that this month will be my last month receiving this subscription. I really do think it’s one of the better beauty subscriptions out there, plus it’s a great way to build up your makeup collection for pretty cheap!
The reason I decided to move on to another subscription is because I wasn’t liking all the things that I was getting in my bags and the points you get just don’t really amount to anything. I think Birchbox is better over all for beauty and lifestyle items, but don’t worry, I have taken on another subscription in the place of Ipsy. Keep an eye out for a new subscription box. 🙂
Now let’s get into the review of this month’s Ipsy Bag.
