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.
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.
So this month I wasn’t too excited to receive either my Birchbox or my Ipsy Bag. The only thing I was looking forward to in this month’s box was the Mally lipgloss and that is because I had the opportunity to choose it and the color. I ended up really liking most of the products which was a huge plus. I guess you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. 😉 If you want to sign up for a Birchbox subscription, Click Here.
This month’s box has everything to do with being a couch potato… kind of. They are embracing being able to stay in, watch all the new fall TV premiers, find a new flick or read a good new book. S with that in mind, every box came with a card that you are suppose to fill in your favorite TV show that you are binge-watching right now. Along with that card, every box also comes with the explanation card that talks about all the items included and some tips on how to use them.
Now that the explaining is over with, let’s get into the good stuff. 😉
What I love most about Birchbox are the products and special, limited edition(LE) boxes they put out. This is not the first time I’ve bought a LE box before, but this is the first one that included non-beauty related products. I was so excited when I saw kitchen/party products. Birchbox says, “this box is here to give your next event an extra upgrade”, which is so true! From the two artisanal cocktail syrups to the enchanting place cards, this box will sweeten up any occasion! 🙂
