This was the first month I tried Ipsy. I’ve heard a lot of great things about them so I thought I’d try it out for myself. And it’s only $10 a month.
It’s my understanding that they send a makeup bag every month and I really liked the one they sent this month. That little bag can hold a lot more than it seems like it would be able to.
Bumble and Bumble All-Style Blow Dry -.5 oz, Approx Value $3
Nourish Organic Eye Cream – .5 oz, Approx Value $8
NYX Butter Lip Balm in Parfait – Full Size, Value $4
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara – .1 oz, Value $8
Crown Infinity Crease/Shadow Brush – Value $17.50, can buy for $6.99
Total Value (with discounted brush) – $29.99
Overall, I thought this was a great bag. I love that most everything is a staple in my beauty routine and I’ll be able to use all of it. That is really what I look for in the subscription boxes I get.

I really like this box, especially the value! I used the Replumping Hair Filler from Davines and it was amazing! It completely changed the texture of my thin hair. It actually looks thicker after one use! I was very impressed with that and can’t wait to try the replumping shampoo and conditioner. That product alone makes this box for me, the rest are just bonuses.
I love Birchbox. If you want to try it, subscribe here. It’s only $10 a month and always totally worth it.

Target is my most favorite store on the planet and when I heard they had a beauty box I knew I had to get one. I got one a few months back for $7 but the box I’m reviewing is the $10 box they were offering.

What an amazing value for just $10! I love trying new things and can’t wait to try out all the fun things in this box. I love that they included every day items that I know I’ll be able to use. That’s one of the best things about the Target beauty box. I’m super excited about the hair thickening solution. My hair is abysmally thin, especially after having Wallace. Overall, this was a great purchase and I’m extremely happy with it.
Did you get one of the Target beauty boxes this time around? What did you think?
