December ipsy bag - For You With Love & a Bonus Item!

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.

Red quilted makeup bag.

All the treasures.

em Cosmetics Shade Play eye color palette in Dublin Khakis. Value = $28.00

The approximate value of this months bag is $39.99 not including the eye shadow palette. Let's talk about that palette though. The included card thanked me for being a subscriber for over 3 years and noted I was one of the first subscribers (when it was glam bag). I thought this was an awesome surprise, not to mention an awesome palette. The other items in the bag when ok but nothing super exciting for me. I know a lot of people like the makeup blenders but I don't wear foundation often so I'll probably trade this. I am looking forward to using the coconut conditioning treatment. I have a finishing powder from another box but I haven't used it yet, mostly because I'm not sure how and I've been too busy to Google it. I do use eye primers so I will use the Elizabeth Mott primer and see how it compares to my MAC primer.

Verdict: This is the box I've subscribed to the longest and it was awesome to see ipsy acknowledge that. 

Everyone Loves A Treasure
