Review: May Birchbox vs My Glam

Second and last battle.  Why?  Because I cancelled Birchbox.  Yeap, I did.  The last two boxes didn't impressed me that much and I prefer My Glam.  I also realized I was spending $20 each month for sample boxes = $240 per year = Michael Kors tote.  Ha!  Got me?  Here's the last battle and Is pretty obvious who won it...

PRESENTATION:
 Birchbox
vs.
My Glam
[ What's the deal with the Birchbox Gossip Girl promo?  I bet that for those who like these series, the box was heaven-ish this month, but what does that have to do with the products inside?  I don't watch it, so I don't get it.  The My Glam make-up bag was cute. ]


SAYING 'HI' CARDS:
Birchbox
vs.
My Glam
 
[ I like the detailed description from Birchbox, but I think that My Glam is easier to read. ]


INSIDE THE BOXES:
Birchbox
vs.
My Glam
 
[ I hate when the boxes bring perfume samples, but putting that aside, the stuff inside My Glam's box instantly caught my attention! See below an Instagram shot of the Nail Bling. ]



HIGHLIGHTS:
  
Birchbox
vs.
My Glam
 
 [ My eyes are the main focus when I put make-up on. Eye-liner and mascara are my favorite parts and I love to try new colors and shapes.  That's why I was more excited about the Birchbox highlight.  On the other hand, the My Glam Redwood lipstick is GORGEOUS  and good quality, so let's say this is a tie. See picture below of how they both look. ]
 



SECOND HIGHLIGHTS
 Birchbox
vs.
My Glam
[ Birchbox: Hair conditioner and face cream (almost empty bottles).
My Glam: Concealer brush and eye-liner brush. 
You know what I think, right?  ME = eye-make-up-girl.  ;) ]


 Now I want to know your opinion!

  1. Is My Glam any cheaper than Birchbox by any chance? Just curious. The My Glam box looks cuter and has more brands I've actually heard of!

  2. Nice birchbox haul! The concept behind Birchbox is really cool -- allowing people to try products first. I wish there's gonna be a Birchbox company in Manila soon!

  10. Hehehe...well as badly as I feel about writing in my post a few weeks ago that I discontinued my birchbox subscription...I can take comfort that others felt likewise. I think your myglam was better... Although..if you have time and check out my post today, Birchbox and Kerastase did sponsor a local event at a salon in chicago. That was a birchbox specifically for the event...it was good. Full sized kerastase serum? Sign me up!

  12. I received my birchbox from may and I got different products that I actually liked. The samples for Kerastase were the best, the Stila eyeliner was good and the Miss Dior perfume sample was nice. I will receive my first glam bag on June so I can compare and decide which subscription to continue. Love your blog btw! Keep going....

  16. Okay, I don't know if it is all the beauty products or the fact that this is such an awesome idea that I am really excited right now. Or is it because I'm lifted. Either way, I love both bags. I actually watch the show and I really love the high end products. However, you're rendition of it is super creative and lovely. In fact, I like the brushes in the My Glam more and fragrance. I love perfume.
