January ipsy glam bag - All Eyes On You

ipsy sends out a glam bag with 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 ipsy bag w/approximate value:

1.01 oz. Mitchell and Peach Body Cream in English Leaf. Value = $6.55

FULL SIZE Hikari Cream Pigment eyeshadow in Mink. Value = $13.00

FULL SIZE theBalm eyeliner Mr. Write (Now) in Jac B. Bronze. Value = $17.00

Beau Gachis Smudge-Tache. Value = $10.00

.24 oz. Pur-Lisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Eye Serum. Value = $32.50

Retro sunglasses makeup case.

The approximate value of this months bag is $79.05. I love the color of the eyeshadow and that it's not a powder. I haven't tried it on my eyes yet but Hikari hasn't failed me yet so I'm hoping it won't cake in the eye crease. I also love the color of the eyeliner and it compliments the eyeshadow perfectly. I can't believe how expensive the eye cream is. Why is eye cream so expensive in general? I was kind of bummed to see another makeup brush only because I have so many now. The great thing is I have enough to keep a second set in my travel bag. 

Verdict: I thought this bag had some great products and a great value. Love the eye products!
