My First Makeup Monthly Box!

I became a member of Makeup Monthly's Nail Club after seeing it another blog. She received Essie polishes so I wanted in! It's $20 a month to receive "name brand, quality cosmetics at a fraction of the retail price."

I wasn't very impressed with the presentation compared to Birchbox and Sample Society. The beauty tips were printed on flimsy paper. For costing more than any of the sample subscriptions... they should step it up!

L-R: Vanity Fairest, Jamaica Me Crazy, Aperitif
I received:

- 3 Essie polishes: Aperitif, Vanity Fairest, Jamaica Me Crazy
- 2 pedicure to separators
- And "Beauty Tips" which weren't very helpful

Overall, I wasn't very impressed. Yes it's nice to receive 3 Essie polishes but I'd rather pick out which colors I want when I'm spending my money.

Have you tried Makeup Monthly? How did you like the service?


  1. Oh I love the colors but would be annoyed too if that was the only thing in the box!

    Chic 'n Cheap Living

  2. I guess it's always hit and miss with make up boxes like this. I've received a couple and one of them was really disappointing!
    I guess there's nothing amazing in that box either!

    1. I'm surprised... With competition so fierce you'd think they want to stand out - in a good way!

  3. They've actually been around for quite a while...and are known for sending out discontinued items. Caveat Emptor


We all have opinions... I want to hear yours!
