I'm sorry IPSY has been so underwhelming lately. I've never gotten them, but I doubt I will now. Have you ever tried Julep? I've been really impressed with their polish!
I have birchbox, and it's been pretty underwhelming too, although we get points for reviewing products we received, so we can redeem those for free full sized products. Julep and boxycharm sound really awesome, though!-Sisihttp://www.youtube.com/modernbeautygirlhttp://www.modernbeautygirl.com
I love love love Birchbox- this month was the first month I was let down. I'm going to watch your video soon!
I haven't- but have seen amazing things about it. I just never paint my nails hah
I think they do beauty products, too. I'm not 100% sure, though. :)
I actually just joined up with IPSY again last month after having cancelled twice on them before. I'm more pleased with them than I have been in a while, but I think part of that has to do with my changing makeup habits and needs! I loved the little lipstick this month and I felt like I FINALLY got a bag I'm going to use (the cheap studded bag last month I couldn't get out of the house fast enough). But I wouldn't have liked your bag as much, so I totally get your feelings on canceling.Birchbox has a much better point system - I'm sort of obsessed with them - and I just put myself on the Boxycharm waitlist a few days ago. I'm glad to hear you love it!
I liked lasts month bag- but I have so many bags I don't know what to do with my life. haha. I think the point system with birchbox is why I stay + love it so much. It's so easy to get points and buy stuff I wouldn't normally buy. Though I haven't cashed in my points yet. Boxycharm is the bomb. I'm going to have my unboxing up this week and you're going to LOVE it.
I canceled last year for most of the reasons you've stated. It just started to suck a lot and I wanted to save money even though it was only $10 it really does add up. Then when I wanted to cancel they made it SO hard on me giving me the run around. After that experience they'll never see another dime from me again.
Wow- yeah I hate when companies make you feel bad for your choices of trying not to do business with them anymore. That's how Beauty Box 5 was with me. They were impossible to contact to cancel- then when I canceled, they contacted me about doing a free box. So I did (bc I generally liked what I got in my boxes- I just wanted to save the money and I stuck with Ipsy + Birchbox before bb5) but I was not happy about how they were hard to contact about cancelling
Yeah I totally feel you about that! I hate shade! I'd love to try a new box but it's just not in my budget currently, though I do love watching unboxings. The only one I have is quarterly and is the Fortune Cookie Soap 'The Soap Box'. I could never give that one up. I LOVE it so much!Had it about 3 years now I think.
