August ipsy bag - Prep School

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.

August ipsy bag. 

Contents of bag with value and approximate retail price:

1 oz. Briogeo Blossom & Bloom Blow Dry Spray. Value = $3.53

FULL SIZE Starlooks Pro Eyeliner Pen. Value = $19.00

Lord & Berry Nude Lip Liner. Value = $9.00?

FULL SIZE Hikari Lip Gloss in Salsa. Value = $13.00

1 oz. Oz Naturals Amino Herbal Hydration Mask. Value = $5.50

Black and White Make Up Bag.


The approximate value of this months bag is $50.03. I'm guessing on the price of the lip liner because it's smaller than the full size. I would guesstimate it's about half the size. I'm absolutely loving the makeup bag in the box this month. It's plastic which doesn't bother me and the design is sooo cute! I will use all the items in this bag except the lip liner. I gave that to a friend and when she swatched it I thought it was a really nice color but I probably still wouldn't use it. 

Verdict: Great price and great box.
