March ipsy bag

Ipsy bag sends out 4-5 samples and a makeup bag for $10 a month with shipping included. If you sign up yearly it's $110 which brings the price down the $9.16 a month with shipping included.  I've been with them for over a year now and have really enjoyed it overall.  It constantly has a high product value with products that I use.

This months theme is "The Great Escape"

This subscription is available to the US and Canada. 

The good:

The samples.  They seem to include at least one full size sample each month, which is nice.    

The packaging. Each month the products come in a cute makeup bag for all your goodies.

Discounts: The almost always offer a discount on any additional purchases you want to make. 

The not so good:

Skip a month? There is no option to skip a month.  You have to cancel.

Ipsy Treasures.

This is the close up of the palette.  It's magnetic so the eyeshadow stays in place.

Contents of bag with value and approximate retail price:

1 oz. bottle of Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist. Value = $3.70 - felt pretty good but a little heavy at first.  Smells like roses. 

8 pack of La Fresh Travel-lite makeup remover wipes. Value = $1.99

Yaby eyeshadow pot in Seashell - high shine color. Value = $3.29

Yaby eyeshadow pot in Azalea Petal - Satin color. Value = $3.29

GlamRX Mini Freestyle Palette with magnetic base. Value = $10.00?? - This is the mini version created for ipsy so I couldn't find a price on it.  The regular version has one more section to add makeup to it.

Nautical themed makeup bag. 

The approximate value of this months bag is $22.88 not including the makeup bag.  I really liked this months bag.  The makeup bag is super cute.  I love the eyeshadow colors. I like the idea of the GlamRX palette but I don't know if I have any makeup that I can put in it.  I use makeup remover pretty much every night so these will come in handy.  I don't know how often I will use the hydrating mist but with summer coming it might not be a bag thing to have around.

Verdict: Ipsy is consistently a great all around inexpensive beauty subscription. 


  1. Oh duh - I couldn't figure out what went into the GlamRX thing (I didn't get on the Ipsy site yet). I cannot wait to try the colors. I think I got the same colors you did. The face mist smells just like roses.

    1. I liked the colors a lot, they are great. I was surprised a scent wasn't listed on the spray because I thought for sure it would say rose scented.

  2. I'm so excited! I've been trying to sign up for this for 3 months and finally got my email saying I will get my box in April! I'm super excited! =D Just thought I'd add this. I'm so excited for April already!

    1. isn't that exciting when you get the "your in" email. I feel like the little green men in Toy Story when the claw picks them - ohhhh, ahhhh. I find the makeup bags make great gift wrap. My boyfriends daughter loves anything nautical so I used this bag to put a bracelet in that we bought for her birthday. She loved it!

    2. Awww thats a great way to use it! I'm glad she loved it! =D

      I know right!!! I was so excited!! I'm like counting down the days until it ships! =D

      I'm sorry if I don't reply to all the comments I posted. I didn't bookmark my comment frenzy on your posts and can't find all my posts and I keep getting distracted with all your newer things lol. =D
