Birchbox vs Ipsy Spoilers {April 2016}

birchbox vs ipsy spoilers

So we’re nearing the end of the month and for Birchbox and Ipsy subscribers that means daydreaming about those samples! For non-subscribers… that means deciding if this is the month you’ll take the plunge. Ready for the compare?

First up…

Ipsy’s April 2016 Spoilers

ipsy glambag sneak peak april 2016

This is Ipsy’s first spoiler of the month. Everyone will receive either:

Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Creme
Full Size Value = $24.00
Sample Size = unknown

Benefit They’re Real! Tinted Primer
Full Size Value = $24.00
Sample Value = $9.00

Buxom Wildly Whipped Lightweight Liquid Lipstick

I’d be happy with any of these items. I love that they are doing a smaller selection of guaranteed items this month and hope they continue the theme, although I’m sure some people will complain about there being two lip products and a mascara primer. I’ve gotten the benefit primer before and I loveeeee it, so I really would be happy with anything here! Just no bright barbie pinks in the lippies please, Ipsy!

Birchbox April Reveal

And then we’ve got the Birchbox reveal. If you don’t know, with Birchbox you can choose one of their ‘sample choice’ items to receive in your bag along with the rest of your items, or you can choose the curated box where you’ll receive every item it lists, or you can leave your box completely random. Sample choice is open the last few days each month. (3/28 early access, 3/29 everyone else)

The look of these boxes in photos and videos doesn’t appeal to me… I’m hoping they look less old-lady-curtain-ish in person.

The Sample Choices:

I have two Birchbox accounts, and for one I’ll be going for the curated box due to the Dr. Jart, the Tocca hand cream, and the Marcelle 3-in-1 Millecar. I’m not sure yet for the second box if I’ll be doing the trio, the hair mask, or leaving it random. What are you girls picking??

If you sign up for Birchbox now, you will still receive the March box,
or check out my past Birchboxes.

If you sign up for Ipsy now, & share to bypass the waitlist, you will get April’s bag,
or check out my past Ipsy glambags.
