Happy Monday! Today I’m bringing you a very exciting review on the company and products provided by Choix! Choix is the “makeup counter delivered to you,” which is fitting because the French name translates to “Choice” in English.
I love subscription boxes and have reviewed a few before, so I was very excited when Choix reached out and asked if I’d like to try out some new makeup. In a nutshell, Choix let’s you try samples of high-end makeup for $5 a sample (free shipping) and if you end up purchasing the product, that $5 goes toward the product. If you want monthly boxes, it costs $20 for 5 samples and you get to choose what you get every month, which is probably the biggest advantage to Choix over other boxes. For more information, you can read up on their rewards program and other details here.
The Packaging: The mailing box was very sturdy, so I would imagine it’d be very hard for anything to break! Very impressed right of the bat!
The Product: The products are repackaged into sample containers just like they would be at a makeup counter for you to try. I picked out some things I’ve always wanted to try (especially the Chanel foundation) but have always been too afraid to spend the money on. I’m one of those people who feels very guilty returning a product if I don’t like it (even though most stores allow you to), so I always like to be sure about a purchase before I make it.
The Value: First, how cute does this look? Everything was secured down in the box along with some little tools. There’s definitely enough product in each to use once, probably more.
Here’s an up-close look at the products so you can see what you’re getting. I think I’ll be able to use all of the samples multiple times, except for the Chanel bronzer. I put the samples next to some more commonly known products for scale (the eyeshadow is Urban Decay).
Final Thoughts: So, do I think Choix is worth the price? Yes!
I think the ideal customer for Choix is…
- Someone who doesn’t live around a department store and can’t otherwise try samples of these products (I don’t live close to a major department store to try many of the high-end brands Choix offers)
- Someone just getting into makeup
- Someone who wants to give a great gift
I don’t see myself getting a box every month, but I would definitely get a Choix box if I had a wedding or big event so I could have a full face of crazy expensive makeup for only $20!
Thank you to Ellie and the Choix team for the box! Head on over to their website to drool over some Chanel, Dior, Bobbi Brown, Nars…you get the picture!
