Birchbox & Ipsy box November review and hello again!

Hello peeps,
~Haha I'm just kidding! I missed you guys soooo much! I'm sorry for not being able to blog frequently. However,I am now officially a college student (yeah!!!). Well the first day of school in college was nerv breaking but I found a good part time job to give me some extra money each month (paying the bills is so not fun though!)
~There are so much stress invested in you once you became an adult. There are irritated people you have to face, pile of homework that become solely your responsibility (no parents to tell you to do your homework!) and MOST IMPORTANTLY! you have to figure out what you want to do in life from now on =_=. What do you want to do? How are you going to do it? Where and who do you want to invest your time in? How did you cope to stress? Millions and gazillions of questions popping in my head everyday!
~Anyway, in the past month I subscribed to Birchbox and Ipsy (formerly myglam) makeup boxes. These are services that provide you with beauty samples every month with the charge of $10/month. I love surprises so I was so excited to subscribe!!!
 

November Ipsy Box


~ There is a total of 5 beauty samples all of which packaged in a cute and convenient black bag. The bag contained the following samples: The theme is "Party Perfect"
1.nailtini Lacquer (in this golden sparkly color)
 


2. Matt(e) eyeshadow in black
3.Bareminerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss
4. Startlet Intense Eyeliner in black
5. Benefit "They're Real Beyond mascara"
Overall I LOVE this box because all the samples are very useful and very good products!
Ratings: ❤❤❤❤❤ :)
November Birchbox
 This is the November Birchbox. The them is GIVE.
It included the following 5 samples:
1. Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy La Fleur perfume sample
2. ModeCo Fibre Lashxtend Lengthening Mascara
3.Once Love Organics Aromatic Body Serum
4. Oscar Blandi Pronto texture and Volume Spray
5. Soyjoy Cranberry Snack Pack
~Compare to the ipsy box, the birchbox was a big dissapointment. The Body Serum is super sticky and smell kind of strong, The Oscar Blandi Volume Spray smell super upder bad and the Soyjoi snack pack is kind of irrelevant (I signed up for beauty products not food lolz). The two things I was excited about was the mascara and the perfume sample.
~Overall ratings ❤❤❤
~I feel like what I paid is more than what they actually give me! :(
~So I cancelled their subscription. However, maybe when I'm bore then I will sign up again! Hopefully they will improve their box by then :)

~So Nikky and I was being kind of distant lately. For you new subscribers, Nikky is my best friend :). However, We just started to talk again and have a sleepover the other day! Here some silly pictures of us haha

~How did you guys cope with college life (and college weight lolz). Let me know in the comment below!
~I will see you guys soon!
XOXO Charlotte
