Battle of the Boxes: February 2018 | Ipsy, Birchbox, or Boxycharm?

It’s already month 2 in my subscription box product review series, in which I review my three beauty box subscriptions: Ipsy, Birchbox, and Boxycharm.  However, this month, my coworker talked me into reviewing the Sephora Play! subscription box as well.  In the Battle of the Boxes series, I review each product in each subscription box and compare them with the other products in the other boxes… and then I will let you know which box was the best of all.  This is a fun way to try some new products and share my opinions with the world…but more importantly, these boxes are now a tax write-off for me.  So without further ado, I present to you: the Battle of the Boxes, February 2018 edition.

Battle of the Boxes: January 2018

So, a new thing I want to do each month is to review my three beauty box subscriptions: Ipsy, Birchbox, and Boxycharm.  I will review each product in each box and compare them with the other products… and then I will let you know which box was the best out of the three.  This is a fun way to try some new products and share my opinions with the world…but more importantly, these boxes are now a tax write-off for me.  So let’s kick off the “Battle of the Boxes” series with January 2018:

My big, exciting "Black Friday" splurge this year was the four different $10 mascaras from Ulta... but which one is the best? Let me start by...

The Battle of the $10 Mascaras From Ulta!

So, this year was my first time hosting Thanksgiving at my new house and all of my family was there. Even though I had a million things on my mind, I remembered that at 5 o’clock, I needed to log on to Ulta.com and buy some cheap makeup. Luckily for me, I was able to get right to the website and managed to add what I wanted to my cart. Unluckily for me, I got sidetracked before fully checking out and by the time I came back, everything was sold out. Even though my turkey just finished at 6 o’clock, I decided to endure the 5-minute drive to pick up some $10 Mascaras from Ulta. Fortunately, it was really quick and easy and I was back home within a few minutes.

The next morning, as I was laying in bed, I realized that I only purchased three out of four of the $10 Black Friday mascaras that we’re on sale. I immediately grabbed my baby daughter, hopped in my car, and drove back to Ulta. To my surprise, they had one more unit of the Buxom mascara and I snatched it up. Now that I have them all, I figured it would be fun for me to compare and contrast them and let you all know which one is my favorite!

Was the Tarte Maneater, Urban Decay Big Fatty, Buxom or IT Cosmetics mascara the best?
