I really enjoy beauty subscription boxes, and I have been subscribed to Ipsy, Boxycharm, FabFitFun, Tribe Beauty Box, and Proscription Beauty Box from Camera Ready Cosmetics. These are fun and a great way to try new makeup at a discounted price, but there are ups and downs to each of them.
Here are the 12 Makeup subscription boxes that rank the highest among real subscribers:
1. Macy’s Beauty Box
This monthly box contains five deluxe samples, plus a bonus item, as well as a makeup bag and a coupon for $5 off your next beauty purchase.
2. Lip Monthly
Get a cute makeup bag, along with four to five full-size lip products (ranging from lipstick and gloss to scrubs and liners) every month.
3. BeautyFix By Dermstore
For the skincare lovers, you’ll receive at least six full-size or deluxe travel-size products that have been handpicked each month from Dermstore-approved brands such as Nia 24 and Juice Beauty.
You’ll receive five deluxe skin, hair, or makeup samples from premium brands such as Lancôme and GlamGlow.
5. Clean Beauty Bag
Holy beauty box! This expertly curated, a little bit over the top box from Revolve’s beauty department may be pricey—but inside are 16 clean beauty products you’ve got to try. It includes some of our favorites like Pursoma, Briogeo, and Lilah B, and brands we’re excited to experience, like Osea. And it’s worth $238 dollars, which means you’re actually getting a really good deal.
6. The Detox Box
Green beauty emporium The Detox Market’s box gives you a selection of products from one brand every month (recent boxes have featured Henné Organics, Pai Skincare, and other clean favorites). Plus, the longer you commit (up to six months), the less each delivery costs.
TreasureTress founder Jamelia Donaldson knows that Black hair is often overlooked—and that it’s not a monolith. But by customizing deliveries to your hair type and other preferences, this (often sold out) subscription box is taking out the guesswork, and helping women worldwide find their new favorite products.
8. Subscription Box
You’ll never get tired of your GlossyBox, which arrives in a baby pink package that reveals five beauty products that will make you the envy of all your beauty-obsessed friends.
9. The Clean Beauty Box
It’s all in the name: the Clean Beauty Box sends you a package of clean products, every other month. The twist? All are full-sized—so you can get the most out of your Indie Lee toner, Ursa Major deodorant, or other new must-have.
Once you fill out an in-depth beauty questionnaire covering topics such as your skin tone, eye color, brand favorites, and makeup preferences, each month you’ll receive five deluxe samples tailored to you, plus a cosmetics pouch.
11. Beauty Heroes
If you’re curious about clean beauty, this is the box for you. Each month, you’ll get one full-size product, along with an assortment of deluxe samples, free of harmful ingredients.
12. Boxy Charm
You may be willing to share your products since this monthly subscription box contains four to five full-size makeup or skincare items. Shipping is free, and you can cancel at any time.
