May ipsy bag - Destination Chic

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.

The approximate value of this months bag is $87.00. This bag continues to be one my favorite monthly subscriptions. The price is great and the products are a varied enough to keep your interest. I know it seems silly but my favorite thing this month is the make up bag. I love the snap closure and the travel theme. I'm a travel agent so it's perfect for me and my clients. I couldn't believe the price of the lip balm. I've don't believe I've ever tried a $21 dollar lip balm. What makes this worth $21 I wonder?

Verdict: I'm happy with the products in this bag and I love, love, love the makeup bag.
