I subscribe to both and have to say that ipsy is still my preferred of the two. Ipsy seems to offer me more makeup options that I find I can use or I get great tools that can get expensive. Ipsy products are generally easier for me to find in-store when I've gone looking for the full size product. Birchbox seems to have smaller samples but I tend to get a lot of things for my hair and skin. This is great if that's what you look for, but it's not for me.

Ipsy! I prefer to get more actual makeup, rather than lotions and serums, etc. so ipsy was for me. While birchbox sent more luxury items, they were smaller samples of things like face washes and anti-aging lotions which I wouldn't really use. Ipsy sends cheaper brands but it was fun because I hadn't heard of them before and the samples were larger!

Both use repeat brands pretty often. Ipsy might have more recognized brands but you do not always get the same products everyone else does.

Ipsy is personalized and sometimes get really high end products, but small samples of them. Also, you get a makeup bag every month. Then birch box has better products but no makeup bag and not personalized

Ipsy gives cute bags, but I heard they aren't always worth it.
