April ipsy bag - Beauty Rocks

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.

Renewal. If your a yearly subscriber they automatically charge your credit card for another year when the paid for year is up. I think they should sent out an email prior reminding you that your year is almost up and it will automatically renew.

makeup bag with a music theme.

The approximate value of this months bag is $63.12. This bag was a hit for me. I think filling out those reviews are finally working. I love Big Sexy products and this travel size will be perfect for my upcoming cruise. I like any face product that scrubs and gets off that layer of skin that makes you complexion look dull. I have lots of black eyeliner but I really like the Urban Decay brand and this goes on really smooth. I'm not too sure about the Cailyn product. I don't use a lot of lip products but the color is pretty light and it get good reviews. The eyeshadow came broken but I'm getting a replacement so no big deal.

****UPDATE ON REPLACEMENT EYESHADOW****
I contacted ipsy and they said they would send me a replacement asap. A few days later I received a package from them but it didn't have the Elizabeth Mott eyeshadow it had the bh cosmetics California  eye shadow. So I emailed them back and said that I had received the package but it was the wrong item. They said they ran out of the Elizabeth Mott eye shadow so they sent this one instead since people seemed to really like it. They they were sorry to hear I was disappointed, apologized and thanked me for sticking with them as they grow. Ummm, really? I was not happy with that response or the product since it's not what was in my bag and not what I wanted. I figured it was useless to respond back so I'm just dropping it.

Verdict: ipsy is one of my favorite subscriptions for their great products and terrific pricing.
