Best Beauty Subscription Boxes
1. Play! by Sephora – $10 a month
Play! by Sephora was your top choice this year! This affordable box contains 5 beauty samples, plus an additional perfume sample. The brands they feature in the box are the same ones they sell at Sephora stores, so it’s a high-end collection of samples, and they often showcase new products, too.

Not far behind is another fan favorite: Ipsy! Ipsy also sends you 5 beauty and makeup samples each month PLUS a makeup bag! The brands are a mix of high-end, mid-range and drugstore brands, so expect to get some cheaper makeup.
3. Boxycharm – $21 a month
Boxycharm is always one of the most popular beauty boxes that we review due to it’s excellent value: Almost every month subscribers get over $100 worth of beauty and makeup products for only $21. If you are looking for a lot of full-size makeup products, this is a great option.

7. Glossybox – $21 a month

8. Target Beauty Box – Varies in cost, usually $7-$10
While the Target Beauty Box is isn’t actually a subscription (Target releases new beauty boxes about every other month), this box is still so popular that the boxes regularly sell out. The value is always great, they come with Target coupons, and they have a good mix of samples and full-size items. Also, a pro-tip from fellow My Subscription Addiction readers – save the Target Beauty Coupon in your box to use on your next Target Beauty Box purchase!
