February Ipsy bag - Pretty In #ipsypink

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:

.02. Paula Dorf enhancer baby eyes. Value = $1.00

Luxie Beauty Flat Definer Brush. Value = $12.00

.13 Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil. Value = $5.53

.5 oz Promise Organic Argan Creme Face Lotion. Value = $4.41

1.35g Chella Lip Pencil in Passionate Pink. Value = $9.00??

Textured cute envelope makeup bag.


The approximate value of this months bag is $31.94. I swear I have every makeup brush imaginable then I get one that I don't have. I'm not even sure how to use this one but I like it. It's stiff and flat. I've heard good things about the smashbox primer oil. I'm hoping it takes the shine off for photos. I've never used argan oil on my face but I love the way it feels in my hair. I wasn't a big fan of the lip pencil but my friend received the argan oil for hair so we traded. win, win!

Verdict: I loved the makeup bag this month. I'm also excited to try my new brush out, not quite sure how yet but I'll learn.
