Birchbox vs. Glossybox vs. Ipsy Glam Bag ~ October 2014 Edition

Hi lovelies!  It's that time again, to see how the three big beauty subscription boxes stack up to each other.  Which one was the best value?  Which box had the best products for me?   Without further ado, I bring you October's edition of Birchbox vs.Glossybox vs. Ipsy Glam Bag! {Click to see how they stack up!}

My October Birchbox was a good one!  I am hooked on the Shiseido Concentrate and have been using it regularly.  My skin is so much softer, clearer, and brighter!  Want to see my initial review?  Birchbox October Review.

Glossybox hit it out of the park with 4 of the 5 items being full-sized! My favorite has to be the tarte Power Pigment - it's amazing!  The Proganix Repair has been leaving my hair soft and frizz-free.  Want to see each product in better detail?  Glossybox October Review.

Ipsy's Beauty Candy themed-bag wowed me with the amazing Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths and an extra of my current fave mascara, Revlon Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara.  Want to see each product again?  Ipsy October Review.

Here's the breakdown:

Birchbox ~ Cost $10
Dr. Jart+ BB Black Label Detox ~ $4.80
Lord & Berry Pailettes Glitter Eye Pencil ~ $4.50
Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate ~ $21.67
Skin and Co Truffle Body Milk ~ $1.68
TONI&GUY Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray ~ $5.51

Glossybox ~ Cost $21
Tarte Cosmetics Power Pigment ~ $24
Proganix Repair Reparative Oil + Anti-Breakage ~ $11.99
Nails Inc. Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat ~ $10
Vince Camuto Amore Eau de Parfum ~ $5.74
Sesha Cell-White Brightening Mask ~ $9

Ipsy Glam Bag ~ Cost $10
Ecru New York Acacia Protein BB Cream ~ $7.14
noyah All-natural Lipstick ~ $5.60
Figs & Rouge Mango Mandarin Hand Cream ~ $2.39
Revlon Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara ~ $7.99
Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths ~ $5

*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?

All three boxes were awesome this month.   All of the products are great and have made their way into my regular rotation.  Picking a winner is certainly difficult here, as I could argue each as a winner.

With 4 full-sized products, I have to crown Glossybox as my winner.  Next is Birchbox, largely due to the amazing Shiseido concentrate.  Finally, Ipsy because it was the lowest value,  even though I love the cloths and the mascara.

So what do you think?  What are your thoughts and who would you have picked?
