Your right, it is a slippery slope! I have 2 Birchbox subscriptions, Ipsy and Sample Society. I like all 4 services, but Birchbox is my favorite. Birchbox has introduced to me to a few products that I can no longer live without (Orofluido Elixer, Jouer Lip Enhancer, etc.). But, I really enjoy getting Sample Society and Ipsy too!
I had MyGlam for the February bag, and then cancelled and rejoined in time for last month. A few of the products last month just weren't my style. I kept the mascara and the Couture Color hair oil, and the rest, including the bag went to my neice. It killed me to part with that bag! I'm keeping the bag this month. Even if I only keep 2 or 3 products a month and give the rest away, Ipsy is still worth it to me. I think its a really fun service.
I'm looking forward to trying the Meet Matte shadow. I have been thinking of purchasing that palette, and now I get to try one of the shadows first. The lip gloss is a great color for the winter months. I'm hoping to get the eyebrow gel instead of the mascara, as I have about a years supply of mascara samples, and another one on the way from the It-kit Sephora has their weekly special this week. I have never used an eyebrow gel, I just use a little hair spray with an eyebrow brush, so this will be good product to try. I'm not sure if the Starlet Cosmetics product or the nail polish will be for me, but I'm looking forward to trying them. Also, I think the brown bag this month has an elegant look to it. I was impressed with the quality of the bag from last month.
