January ipsy Bag - Fresh Start

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.

Contents of bag with value and approximate retail price:

.5 oz. La Fresh Group eco-beauty moisturizer. Value = $11.76

FULL SIZE Pacifica Mineral Coconut Eye Shadow in Ethereal. Value = $5.00??

.15 oz. Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer Conditioning Lip Treatment. Value = $7.31

FULL SIZE Bellápierra Cosmetics Shimmer Powder in Whesek. Value = $14.99

Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush. Value = $9.99

two toned white/blue makeup bag.


The approximate value of this months bag is $49.05. More eyeshadow brushes. I may end up trading this one. This is the second time I've received a Pacifica eyeshadow that doesn't exist on their website. Weird. Nice color though. I like the idea of the Bellápierra shimmer powder but it seems kind of dark for me. I already have the Jouer product but I carry it in my purse and it's darn handy. 

Verdict: This bag was ok. I gotta experiment with the shimmer powder.
