April ipsy 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 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:

FULL SIZE Hikari Blush in Tango Value = $15.00

theBalm Nude Dude Mini Eyeshadow in Flirty. Value = $3.00

rattan/string makeup bag.


The approximate value of this months bag is $53.47. I was disappointed to see the blush in this bag. I've repeatedly reviewed items and said no blush. I've also said no dry shampoo but that didn't work either. I've heard good things about this dry shampoo though. I think I might bring on it vacation just in case. I was shocked to see the price of the MICA eye primer. $45 a jar? Wow! I use MAC eye primer now but I'm definitely curious about this one. I love the little theBALM eye shadows. I think they are perfectly sized and this color is a good one for me. Pink nail polish? eh, I have lots of pink already. I thought the makeup bag was super cute!

Verdict: This bag had a few items I won't use but the value of the eye primer is fantastic and I will use that for sure.
