The Best Monthly Beauty & Makeup Sample Subscription Boxes
I’ve received many requests to put together a list of the best beauty and makeup subscription boxes – and the list is finally complete! Here are some of my absolute favorite beauty and makeup subscription boxes. I subscribe to all of these subscription services and I am consistently impressed with the value of these boxes and the quality of makeup and beauty items.
My original addiction! Birchbox is the beauty subscription box that got me hooked! For $10 a month you receive 4-5 beauty samples in a bright pink box. Occasionally, a box will contain a full size makeup item, which usually makes the value of the box incredible. They also have a great points system: you earn 10 points ($1) for every sample you review. You can spend those points on any products in the Birchbox shop. It’s a great way to discover new beauty products, and then buy the ones you like at a discount! (Birchbox Reviews).
GlossyBox – $21 a month
GlossyBox has the best packaging – it’s like unwrapping a gift each month! Plus they almost always have multiple full sized makeup products in each box. I also like that since they started overseas, they often source international makeup brands for their boxes. (GlossyBox reviews)
Ipsy - $10 a month
I re-subscribed to Ipsy a few months ago – and I’m so glad I did! At only $10 a month I’m amazed at how much full sized makeup they send out – and always in a cute makeup bag! (Ipsy Reviews).
Sample Society – $15 a month
Sample Society is a beauty subscription box that is partnered with Allure magazine - instant beauty expert cred! Their samples are typicallly deluxe size, and from high-end brands. (Sample Society Reviews).
Julep Maven – $19.99 a month
Julep is a nail polish subscription box, but lately they’ve been increasing their beauty product line as well. Each month you can pick which box you want (or skip a month). They also offer exclusive discounts and sales to their Julep Maven members. (Julep Maven Reviews)
New Beauty Test Tube – $29.95 plus shipping every two months
New Beauty Test Tube is one of the highest value beauty boxes. Their boxes or “tubes” always include deluxe or full size products, and they provide all the information you could want on each product and why they selected it for the box. (New Beauty Test Tube Reviews)
In addition to my long-standing favorite boxes, I also have a few new favorites. So far, I am very impressed with these beauty boxes:
Blush Mystery Beauty Box – $24.95 a month
This subscription is another great box for full-size and deluxe size beauty and makeup products. I was very impressed with their most recent box (lots of variety, well-known brands, and a great value) and I’m hoping the trend continues! (Blush Mystery Beauty Box Reviews)
Wantable – $36 a month
Wantable is definitely one of the pricier subscription boxes – but they deliver a ton of full-sized makeup products in each box. You also can let them know what products you are interested in, and which ones you aren’t – making this box fully customizable! (Wantable Reviews).
