June ipsy - Pretty in Paradise 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 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.

Rebecca Minkoff makeup bag

The approximate value of this months bag is $67.34, maybe. I looked up the Laneige products and a full size compact is .5 oz. That would mean this sample is about half the size of the full size compact. Can that be right? Also I don't know how big the container with the Clarisea product is. I'm guessing it's about 2 oz. This bag was just ok for me. I will definitely use the beach spray and the charcoal exfoliante\. I'm not a huge fan of waterproof eyeliner or mascara because they are so hard to get off. Also I don't use foundation so the Laneige products are lost on me. The lip gloss is a great size but I'm afraid the color is way too pink. I'm going to have to search for some swatches online. Now the item I absolutely love is the Rebecca Minkoff makeup bag. I only wish it matched my Rebecca Minkoff purse.

Verdict: ipsy is one of my favorite subscriptions for their great products and terrific pricing. Even if I don't love everything in the bag I almost always get my moneys worth.
