October ipsy - Beauty Candy

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 since 2011 and this is one subscription I am for sure keeping. They constantly have a high product value with products that I use.

Price: $10 a month with no option to skip. Discount offered for a yearly subscription. 

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.

October ipsy Bag

Contents of bag with value and approximate retail price:

.34 oz. H2O+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment. Value = $7.23

10 pack Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths. Value = $5.00 - I tried these when I got them from LBB and they are great! 

.67 oz. Figs & Rouge Hand Cream in Mango Mandarin. Value = $6.56 - I like the smell of this but I wish it were just a little bit thicker. 

NYC New York Color Big Bold Curl Mascara. Value = $4.99

.3 oz Starlooks Lip Gloss in Guilty Pleasure. Value = $3.00-$4.00??

really pretty real quilted look makeup bag

The approximate value of this months bag is $23.78-$24.78. Like last month I am 100% happy with this bag. I definitely will use all of the stuff in this months bag. I also like the size of the lip gloss because lets face it most of us don't use the whole tube anyway. I've been using the a different formula of the H2O product at night and so far I like it. I was thinking about all the different products I use and I don't know if it's good or bad for my skin but it hasn't hurt anything. I have a ton of mascara right now but I'll add to to the pot. I'm really liking the Urban Decay perversion mascara sample I received.

Verdict: This months bag was fantastic!
