A Year in Review: My Many Beauty Subscription Boxes

A Year in Review: My Many Beauty Subscription Boxes

I can’t believe it’s already been an entire YEAR since I became a Birchbox subscriber. Today I received a pretty pink leather key chain in the mail from Birchbox as a ‘thank you’ for my membership, along with a 25% off discount code (bblove25). Birchbox was gateway drug into the world of beauty subscriptions. Some good, some bad, some really abhorrent. Read below for my thoughts on each beauty box that I have subscribed to over the past year.

New Beauty Test Tube – 2nd Qtr 2012

My second beauty tube of 2012 has arrived, wootness! As most of you know, I only subscribe to the QVC version of the Test Tube because I feel like they have a better variety of items and it’s even a little cheaper. You can view every single beauty tube that I’ve gotten over the past 1.5 years here :)

New Beauty Test Tube – 1st Qtr 2012

It’s a new year, which means a whole new year of BEAUTY TUBES :) I loveee me some Beauty Tubes. I’m subscribed to the QVC version of the New Beauty Test Tube, which in my opinion, is a better value than the regular Test Tubes. There is usually more makeup and better brands in the QVC version. Each tube costs $29.96 plus $6.97 shipping (plus tax depending on your state).

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

My First GoGoGirlfriend Box

UPDATE (2/9/12): I cancelled my GoGoGirlfriend subscription on 1/31/12. I can no longer recommend subscribing to this company. I will leave my GGG posts up as a reference, but sign up at your own risk. See my GoGoGirlfriend post for more details.

Admittedly, I’m pretty obsessed with these monthly sample subscription services. GoGoGirlfriend is the newest service that I joined (thanks to K, one of my awesome commenters for the recommendation!) and so far I am definitely impressed. My last 2 Birchbox shipments have been a little underwhelming, so GoGoGirlfriend has been a refreshing element thrown into my mix of monthlys! The three I subscribe to are: the Beauty Test Tube, Birchbox and GoGoGirlfriend.

New Beauty Test Tube no. 3

New Beauty Test Tube no. 3

Well, after a multitude of shipping delay, I was starting to wonder if I was EVER going to get this thing. But alas, it finalllllly arrived today! This is my 3rd Test Tube from New Beauty this year. If you don’t know what the Beauty Tube is, think ‘Birchbox on steroids’. There are two versions of the Tube that you can purchase: the QVC version, or the direct-from-New-Beauty version. I, of course, opted for the QVC version because it was a little bit cheaper. And after comparing the two, I think the QVC version gets better stuff :)

New Beauty Test Tube No. 2

Umm, wow I totally just realized I never posted photos of my second Test Tube from New Beauty.. oopsies. I received it in April and took pictures and everything.. but never posted them LOL. Blonde moment!

This beauty tube had several awesome items, my favorite being a full size Dalton lip gloss pot. A sample size tube of Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara was also included, which made me happy because I had been dying to try some Tarte mascara (for the record.. wasn’t too impressed with it).
