Birchbox vs. Glossybox vs. Ipsy MyGlam Bag ~ May Edition

Happy Monday lovelies!  So we are a third of the way into June and I haven't done my head to head (to head!) beauty box matchup for May, and it's due to Glossybox's horrible supply chain/logistics.  So better late than never, right?  As you'll notice, it's no longer just Birchbox vs. Glossybox... as mentioned in my latest vlog, I'm now subscribing to Ipsy's MyGlam Bag too!  So now you'll have three to compare, to decide which is for you! Yay!  {Click to keep reading!}

This was my May Birchbox, you can familiarize yourself with my review here.  I really liked all of the products this month, and was quite pleased.

Here's what I got when my May Glossybox finally arrived, you can read my review here.  I was very happy especially with the solid perfume, eyeliner, and free brow waxing!

And this is my first Ipsy MyGlam Bag!  To refamiliarize yourself, check out my vlog review here.  I loved everything (except for the weird concealer pot) and am super duper impressed with Ipsy so far.

So here's the breakdown.

Birchbox ~ Cost $10
Coola Classic Face SPF 30 Cucumber Moisturizer for Face ~ $4.87
DevaCurl 3-Step System ~ $4.74
Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste ~ $2.40
Sumita Color Contrast Eyeliner ~ $5.25
Acroball Pen ~ $2
Total Value $19.26

Glossybox ~ $21
Epionce Intense Defense Anti-Aging + Repair Serum ~ $18.13

etre belle Collagen & Aloe Vera Hydro Mask ~ $3.95
European Wax Center Free Waxing and Sample Packs ~ $16.68
Nicka K New York Absolute! Perfume Stick ~ $14.99
Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray ~ $6.69
Xtreme Lashes GlideLiner Long Lasting Eye Pencil ~ $29

Total Value $89.44

Ipsy ~ $10
Zoya Nail Polish ~ $8
Mirabella Lipstick ~ $22
Pacifica Roll On Perfume ~ $12
Macadamia Hair Oil ~ $13.50
Yaby Concealer Pot ~ $4.85
Total Value $60.35

*All prices were calculated by creating a ratio of the cost of the full size to it's size and then applying that to the sample size to arrive at a price.  For example, if something costs $10 for 1 ounce, and a 1/2 ounce sample is received, I'm valuing it at $5.  Make sense?

I was totally pissed off that my Glossybox didn't even SHIP until May 30th, yet they are always prompt in taking payment at the beginning of the month.  The other boxes process payment and ship within a week, not a month's time.  I do love the products in Glossybox, but I feel they need to get their shit together and ship at the beginning of the month.  Birchbox was great as usual, nothing spectacular, but as always, it's a great way to try new products out!  Finally, Ipsy was surprisingly amazing.  I was expecting something similar to Birchbox, or with weird products or something, but I was super impressed.  Three full sized products in my first bag?  Sold.

Seriously, is there even a question about it?  Ipsy killed it!  I have a new favorite subscription service and it is Ipsy!  I use every product (except that stupid concealer pot) and love it all!  Now I can't wait for my next bag to come in!

Well that's my take on the three, what's yours?
