December ipsy bag - celebration

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 almost two years and this is one subscription I am for sure keeping. They constantly have a high product value with products that I use.

This subscription is available to the US and Canada and ships from Harrisburg, NC.

The good:

The samples: Usually you get at least one full size product in each bag.

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.

Semi-customized: You take a little quiz and your bag is semi-customized with products you will enjoy.

Points: You can earn points for reviews and referrals. You can redeem points for extra goodies in your bag. 

The not so good:

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

shiny black quilted makeup bag.

The approximate value of this months bag is $59.18.  This bag of treasures is ok. I was excited for half the products and meh about the other half. The products I will definitely use are the Nicka K polish, it's a really pretty red color. I also liked the colors in the PopBeauty palette although I know I have all these colors already. When I picked up the eye blender pencil my first thought was how substantial it was. I mean it had a nice heavy sturdy feel to it. When I looked up the price I wasn't surprised since it seems like a nice quality brush. The Be a Bombshell stick is a multi-purpose stick used for eyes, lips and cheeks. A co-worker recently gave me one of these from Josie Maran which is a better color for me than this one. The lip pencil is ok but I have tons of lip stuff already. I have to say also that I love the little makeup bag that was included this month. It's such a cute simple design and great shiny black color

Verdict: even though I was only excited about half the products it's still a great value overall and totally worth the price.
