Birchbox vs Ipsy – April 2014
This is the fourth post in the Birchbox vs Ipsy series!
FYI – I pay for both of these subscriptions, and as a regular customer I get one of many variations available each month. So while one month alone might not be enough info to make a decision, looking at the results over several months should give you a good picture of what to expect with each box.

Verdict: For me, Ipsy was the clear winner this month. Normally Ipsy wins in product size, and Birchbox wins in brands, but this month Ipsy had both! I’m going to use every item in my Ipsy bag this month, which definitely makes it a better value than my Birchbox.
