May 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. If you think you might be interested there is a wait list which can be about a 6 week wait from what I'm told.

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.

The theme this month is Spring Fling.

Contents of bag with value and approximate retail price:

FULL SIZE Pacifica Tahitian Gardenia Perfume Roll-On. Value = $12.00

FULL SIZE Zoya nail polish in Blu. Value = $8.00

1 oz. Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment. Value = $13.50

Bonus for being an active member of ipsy

FULL SIZE Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Zodiac (smoky black with blue green shift). Value =$20.00

chevron style makeup bag in blue, orange and white.

The approximate value of this months bag is $58.36 not including the Urban Decay, coupon or makeup bag. They said they sent me the Urban Decay product for being an active member of the ipsy community but honestly I don't do anything on their site. I'm not complaining though cause I love the color of this eyeshadow. This is the first bag that was sent out using their new customizing system. This bag was customized based on answers to their questions. I would say they hit it on the mark for me except for the concealer. I love the perfume and I'm so glad I received gardenia still I love gardenias. I'm a big fan of Zoya polish although not a huge fan of this color. I tried the macadamia oil several months ago and it was amazing on my hair. I'm not a huge lip gloss person but I like the color of this one.

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

  1. Loved mine! I got a couple things different from yours but I got the lipgloss and it!!! I also love the fun makeup bag this month. I usually give the makeup bags to my little girls but I kept this one for myself!

    1. I was happy with this bag and happy with the little makeup bag. I also thought it was cute and I loved the colors. I'll probably keep mine also.
