Aside from makeup and cosmetics they also include nail care, skin care, hair care, fragrance and more.

How do they put $100+ in value into every box for just $21? We don’t know, but we love it! We recommend this subscription for heavy makeup users, teens starting out with their own makeup collections, and anyone who loves to have fun experimenting with full-size makeup products!

    Why is glossybox not on your list? I have been a loyal subscriber for years now and love it. The boxes are beautiful on the special design months and a pretty pink the rest of the time. The quality of the products are really high. I think they deserve to be on your list and if you haven’t tried them lately, then give the regular or specialty box a try.

    • Hello Subscription

      You’ll be happy to know it made it back on our list for 2019! Look for it soon!
