August 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.  They constantly have a high product value with products that I use.

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 approximate value of this months bag is $52.45 or $60.45 with my bonus nail polish. I love everything in this bag. I've been a fan of Urban Decay since I was a teenager and I've been looking for a red lipstick. The bronze eyeshadow looks like a nice shimmery color for fall. I've had pumpkin facials before and what I remember about it was I couldn't go out in the sun for a couple of days. It had something to do with the pumpkin making you more susceptible to sunburns. I read the back of the bottle and sure enough it mentions staying out of the sun and being sure to wear sunscreen. Mascara is always welcome and even thought I have tons of nail polishes right now I'm liking both colors in this box.

Verdict: Great bag this month with a fantastic value!
