This month’s box contains more skin products, and just included several hair and make-up items, like the apple cider hair rinse and the waterproof mascara. For the skin-loving items, there’s a moisturizer, a spa water cloth, and a foaming gel. The box is always jampacked!
Five full size items from Ipsy

- HUDA Beauty 3D Highlighter Palette in Bronze Sands ($45)
- Benefit Cosmetics Go Go Tint Cheek & Lip Stain ($30)
- Touch in SOL Pretty Filter Waterful Glow Cream ($38)
- Pixi by Petra Glow Mist ($15)
Total Value: About $152
This month’s box makes a complete routine, from the eyes to cheeks to the lips. They even included a bunch of products to keep your skin glowing, like the cream and mist. The best of them all is the lip and cheek stain. It has a nice color payoff and longevity is also impressive. The items are all full-sized and, most of the time, they complement each other or go well together in one routine!
When it comes to cohesion, Ipsy does the job perfectly! The box included usable products for the eyes, cheeks, and lips, making one complete routine. Boxycharm is a very close competitor, since it included a great combination of make-up and skincare. Although Glossybox is not our top pick, they still fought a good fight with all the nice items they included. As always, BeautyFix is jampacked with items that we have yet to try. This is really an awesome battle between awesome boxes that really care about making us feel and look good!
