Top Rated Makeup Subscriptions
Ipsy is one of the OG beauty boxes out there! They jumped on the trend early in the game and have helped revolutionize beauty subscription services. Ipsy is known for their strong social media marketing and the cute Ipsy bags that are sent with every month. You’ll get around 5 products, both sample-sized and full-size. One complaint with Ipsy is the value not competing with other comparable boxes.
Glossybox is known for being the glam bag subscription! The packaging is luxurious and feels a lot like a present to yourself. Similar to the Ipsy subscription, you’ll get around 5 products, including some full-size and sample-size items. This box may just get you hooked on a new product you didn’t even know you needed!
Boxycharm is a winner of beauty boxes! If you like variety of beauty products and value, you’re probably gonna like this box. The products in this $21 box retail for over $100! I don’t know who they sold their soul to, but I’d like to meet them.
Many of the top legit makeup subscriptions give you a variety of hair, skin, and beauty products!

Nail Polish Subscription
If you’re addicted to having a fresh mani, then look into a nail polish box! The Julep Maven box comes with 2 polishes and a beauty product. LiveGlam has also partnered with Laura G Polish to create PolishMe a new nail polish subscription. PolishMe will send 3 new, exclusive, nail polishes every month. If you like opaque coverage and super fast-drying nail polish, then you might fall in love with this box. A fresh manicure is more satisfying than my whole 2016, too.
Makeup Brush Subscription
Any true artist knows how much the tools matter! Makeup brushes are little magic wands that beat your face into perfection. If you’re on the same page as me and can not get enough, then you need to look up a makeup brush subscription! Not to toot our own horn, but LiveGlam does have a pretty fabulous one, #MorpheMe, partnered with Morphe Brushes. We have tons of great reviews from our awesome glam fam! In our first year, we sent out 50 makeup brushes and 1 beauty sponge. Pause with me while I regain composition…….. Yes, 50 brushes– 31 eye brushes, and 19 face brushes. This is definitely a beauty subscription to check out!
Beauty Box Rip-Off
Of course, not everything that glitters is gold! So you need to take precautions for yourself to not get ripped-off by any makeup subscriptions. Be sure to check on their website and look for a social media presence! These are 2 things that can help you legitimize a business. Also look for any reviews with makeup scam claims or other complaints. Positive testimonials from loving fans will exist if they’re doing something right!
