  1. Is there anything good out there for teenage boys? He is not a little kid anymore. And I was really hoping to find a box he would enjoy.

  2. Started getting Ipsy box @ 6 months ago, really like the products PLUS a cosmetic bag every month. One month I just dropped the whole bag in my suitcase for trip I was taking – mascara, eyeliner, shadow, cologne! I get to try some higher end products that I may not normally buy, but will look for now!
    Been getting Wal-Mart box for almost 2 years- all practical items that I can buy at Wal-Mart

  3. What happened to the Free Shipping for the Target Beauty Box???? It Now says that it will only ship free with a $25.00 order!! Well I guess No more Target Beauty Boxes for me.

    • I believe it is always that way with the previous month’s box (if it is still available). The current month’s box is free to ship with no restrictions. Make sure you are viewing the current month’s box.

    • Just ordered mine the shipping was still free maybe call customer service and ask why

    • I just ordered the Target box and it was free shipping

    • It says that and then when your about to check out it should be free shipping.
