Well.....I won't get up on my soapbox about the process behind editorial recommendations :)

 

However, I do like ALLURE, in general, and their branding is strong enough that I doubt they would be willing to license out if this were gonna be a total gyp.

I only really started this year.

 

Birchbox: $10

February was my first box, and I was pleased. 1/1 I'm going to give them 3 tries before I make a final verdict. If I like 2/3 I'll probably switch to the yearly.

 

Conscious Box: $19

January was my first box, and I was underwhelmed. I don't like that they don't give you confirmation when you sign up, and when I e-mailed them to ask if I got "in" the response seemed rude, to me. I did like February's box. It contained a lot of food items that I'll actually use (Himalayan pink salt? Cool!) and some adult items for Valentines day. Also, the cutest tube of (Badger) lip tint ever, that actually moisturizes my lips. As with January, a lot of bars and tea bags, too, which I'll use. And a pretty big size bottle of moisturizing hand sanitizer that smells like licorice tea. So they get 1/2. If next month is awesome, I'll probably switch to the six month subscription.

 

 

I tried Julep Maven. I only paid $5 for it but I was not impressed with the quality, so I cancelled. For $5 it would have been okay, but not for $20. I got nail stickers, and I don't think I'll ever be able to use them. They looked cute online, but they're so huge and ugly in real life. It's a peacock print, but my nails are pretty skinny, I have long nail beds but I keep them short and I'm pretty sure the pattern would be lost on me. I'm contemplating using some on my big toe nails (that's how huge they are!). They also sent some little half sphere "glitter" but I don't know how to get them to stay flat-side-down. I haven't tried the pomegranate body butter/lotion/whatever yet because I vowed to only keep 2 body moisturizers open at a time.

 

I also tried Eco-Emi once. I got a bonus box last summer, and it seemed like stuff you'd buy on Etsy. I'll buy home made stuff at a farmers market, but I don't feel comfortable using stuff that I don't know who made it. Plus it was mostly crap, and a lot of it was melted.

I am subscribed to 

Birchbox

Beauty Army

Beauty Box 5 (just signed up)

My Glam- I had a bad experience with them this month... I had to get a new debit card because I lost mine. Well BIRCHBOX kindly sent me an email saying I need to update my credit card info before a certain date to receive my box. DONE. My Glam didn't do squat. I was actually checking my account to see if My Glam withdrew from my bank account. When I saw it wasn't there I signed on and realized my debit card info was from my previous card. So I went to "change billing info" and I would have to cancel my subscription and renew. Which would be fine except they are OUT OF STOCK. I then emailed customer service and they informed me there is no way to change my card info without canceling my subscription and being on the wait list. So I missed a bag because I could not change my card info... I'm not one to publicly complain BUT seriously??.. I can't change my card number?!? END RANT :)

 

I tried Julep Maven, just not for me.

That sucks about the card, you'd think that would be a basic function!

I agree with you about Julep. I loved the hand lotion I got from them but the nail polish was medicore at best for me.

I ended up signing up for Love With Food, since i'm a sucker for gourmet foods and snacks (and this was the cheapest of all the food boxes).  I like that it gives to charity and has a neat point system and an awesome community (swapping recipes etc.)

 

So my list is:

Sample Society

The Look Bag

Love With Food (I'll decide how I feel after my first free box)

 

I'm debating on whether I want to get Birchbox when I get off the waiting list now, since the boxes that i've seen lately don't seem like something i'd be as interested in...I guess I'll decide when the time comes!

I'm currently subscribed to Birchbox and MyGlam, and I just signed up try Sample Society, Love With Food, and Beauty Box 5.  I'm only allowing myself to have 2 at a time, so after I get my first box from each of the others, I'll be deciding what to keep.  Definitely keeping Birchbox, but the other 4 are competing with each other.  Most likely I'll be canceling MyGlam and keeping one (...or two...maybe) of the others.

I ended up winning a blog giveaway for a free month of LoveWithFood along with 9 other people...which is silly because I already had a coupon for a free month (and I already signed up with it)!  For some reason I thought the prize would be more than one free month since there was that other coupon already floating around....

 

But it's nice to know it's possible to actually win those blog giveaways!

    • I suffered from depression as well. And yes I consulted an online therapy but she was a psychic. She resolved my problems and suggested me some aids. I took 3-4 sessions and now I feel fine. You can check her official website if you want.
    • Yup there are a number of Mac cosmetic kits which I guess you could look for. Foundations all together in it will make up to be best for you I guess.
    • Hey guys, im new here and love all things make up.  I seem to collect makeup from all over.  I love glitter, matte, pearl, anything.  The eye shadow palettes have been my weakness.  Every time a new UD or Morphe palette launches I have to run out and buy. With these palettes I have to have brushes to go with them.  Crease and shading brushes.  Then comes the blending brushes.  Lord, you can't have great eye makeup without a fluffy blending brush. Foundation is an entirely another beast in its own right.  I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush for my foundation.  It is dense and gets the foundation in all the right places. I actually have multiples of the same brushes so I know I have plenty to create my eye look.  While I was shopping for new brushes, I came across a link for a free makeup brush.  https://41f1caqgpjspd4h6n3u8grlh2e.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=MAKEUP119 It has got a few reviews and looks decent.  Hey, Free is free in my book.  The other major brush I use is the Sigma 4d brush that gets right into the corners around the eye for concealers etc.  I probably use like 6-10 brushes when I am doing a full face of makeup...  Even after all that sometimes I am not happy with the end result but its too late and time for me to step out and do what I was prepping for   lol   Well I am glad to be here and look forward to meeting all of you and getting into this makeup world even more...  
    • Congratulations! There some great makeup artists here. So nice to see you here. 
    • Hi Beauties! I dare to say, I found the most valuable and useful beauty tool for myself. I cannot help sharing it to you all. I said how important to draw our eyebrows better and lighting resources are really important to draw eyebrows. Actually lighting resources are important to your whole makeup.I recommended a LED light mirror under a post before if I did not remember wrong. But at that time, I did not use it myself that much and I just thought It's a good choice for someone who is looking for a good mirror. But now I have to highly recommend it. Since these days it's raining all the time AND I get up so early, there is no much natural lighting for me to makeup myself. Then I take out the LED lighting mirror. It surprised me indeed. Really wide-angle viewing. There is a cover on the mirror surface and the cover can be opened as a wider mirror. You can long press the button to change the brightness. That will meet all your makeup demands. When I draw my eyebrows, I can see every eyebrows clearly. I know how to adjust my drawing natural and better.  I did not take pictures of myself. But here you can check it yourself: https://www.amazon.com/Easehold-Tri-Fold-Rotation-Countertop-Cosmetic/dp/B01MG8X4QS/ref=sr_1_1?m=A24N8FLRVFVVCH&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1519698602&sr=1-1 Highly recommend it!!!
