  1. ipsy, Pusheen, and Cult Crushes — RIP Nylon 🙁 I figure 54 is old enough to not care if people think I don’t look/dress “age appropriately.” I won’t wear super bright makeup and carry my Pusheen backpack if I have to go to a funeral or jury duty, but that’s about it.


  3. Yogi Surprise 💜

  4. Very accurate list!

  5. FFF, Beautyfix, POP Sugar, and Sisley Paris are my favs. Happy to see 3 made the list.

  6. Happy to see both FFF and Causebox so high on this list 😀

  7. LOLZ Luxor Box didn’t make the list even after the email spam campaign.

  8. i wish emma and chloe here could be replaced by penny and grace, which was not even on the list of options to vote for.

    • You could vote on any box initially. If it wasn’t on the list, no one voted for it in the first place. I don’t think they can claim a box to be the best when 0 people even suggested it.

    • Oh no, Emma and Chloe deserve to be there

  9. Not as I single period box??

    Seriously, that is the box top box only for women and you don’t include it?


    • Sorry for any confusion. This is the overall best women’s category voted by MSA readers. There will be lots of additional categories (including specific women’s categories) announced soon! 🙂

      • I’m just surprised – and impressed – that you figured out what that comment meant, Liz!

    • Why so serious?

      These are just the results of a poll taken by MSA readers.

  10. Margot Elena!

    • YES!!!

      • YES

    • I agree! Margot Elena rocks!

    • Yes!! Love Margot Elena!!

  11. Fff, ipsy, play, and occasionally the others are my go to boxes. Nice list!

  12. No other subscription I’ve tried has even come close to the value of FabFitFun for me- I’m happy to see it at #1, right where I voted it 😉

    • I agree with you 100%

    • i Would have loved to agree with you I had this box for too long. Shipping is horrible…. orders are always wrong… damage in shipping because they don’t know how to package them….and the quality of products (especially jewelry is really bad)… their best thing is add ons… but I can save the price of a box and watch for sales.

  13. Interesting I haven’t been a fan of fff for awhile, glad others are happy.

    • Why??

  14. Fabfitfun and Boxycharm are my faves!

  15. Really, no Nina Garcia?? Or is that one gone??

    • Well if u don’t know if it’s still around probably why it wasn’t voted for! And I believe it is still around
