I was pretty pleased with all the boxes this month, but for me, the winner this month was……. ipsy! It had an amazing value and so many full-size goodies!

    I usually like sephora best, but I would have to agree that it was Ipsy for February. My Ipsy bag was a bit different, as was my birchbox, but the sephora was the same. I sent the Birchbox to my sister for her birthday (I was sorry the box wasn’t prettier). I’m going to the sephora play party for the first time tomorrow. But I wish I had last month, when the samples were so different between bags.
