Beauty subscriptions allow you to try new beauty products and test what you like and what you don’t, because finding the right products can be tough. It takes patience because it is trial and error; however, there are the perfect products out there for everyone.
You might be one who loves trying new products and is beauty-obsessed, or you may be someone who struggles with finding beauty products and doesn’t have the time to research the best ones to try. Either way, beauty subscriptions are the way to go. I mean, who doesn’t love getting packages anyway?
There are many different kinds of beauty subscriptions, which is why we at Downtown Magazine put together a list of beauty subscriptions we love.
So treat yourself, or treat your girl, to one of the following beauty subscriptions that we picked.

Monthly Glam Bag
Michelle Phan, famous for her inspiration through her beauty video tutorials, began the company Ipsy where each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag that includes deluxe samples as well as full-sized beauty products.
Michelle and her team of stylists personally select the products they love for you to try and hopefully fall in love with as well. Take the beauty quiz, get your first Glam Bag, watch the videos, and find the perfect products for you!

Price: My Maven ($40+ worth of polish & product) $24.99/month or $19.99/month with a three-month prepaid subscription OR Maven Luxe ($60+ worth of prestige products) $39.99/month or $34.99/month with a three-month pre-paid subscription.
Julep believes that everyday looks and trying new trends should be easy, effortless, and inspiring— “because pretty shouldn’t be something we define for you. It’s whatever you choose to show us.” It includes a customizable full-size beauty and polish from brand-new collections every month, from which you can choose from. Both subscriptions include the option to “send to a friend,” skip the month or cancel at any time.
