January ipsy bag - Metropolis

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.

***I have 2 invites for a free glam bag. It's for first time subscribers only!***

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.

January ipsy bag. 

Contents of ipsy bag w/approximate value:

FULL SIZE Pretty Woman nail polish in "I can't deal". Value = $7.99

FULL SIZE Trust Fund Beauty Lipgasm Lipgloss in "Method to the Madness". Value = $22.00

.25 oz. Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream. Value = $9.75

SL Miss Glam Blend Beauty Brush L34. Value = $13.50

1.02 oz 417 Hand Moisturizer.  Value = $5.67

metallic blue makeup bag inspired by skyscrapers. 

The approximate value of this months bag is approximately $58.91. I'm not as excited about the ipsy bags as I once used to be. I feel like I'm getting a lot of duplicate items from all the subscription bags. I like beauty brushes but I have quite the collection now and I don't need anymore. I'm not a fan of this nail color, it's kind of blah and boring. If you have a conservation job then it has it's place. I looked at all the colors of the Trust Fund lipgasm colors and there are a ton of others colors I would liked to have tried. I will use the BB cream and the hand moisturizer.  

Verdict: Even though I will only use half the items in this bag. I'm happy with the items I will use and it's totally worth the price.
