When I first started getting the Ipsy monthly subscription bags I loved it. Each bag comes with 5 items that are customized to you based on a survey you take on their website.
I have been receiving Ipsy bags of about three years. There are many pros to the Ipsy subscription bags and some cons.
They come in cute zipper bags that are great for using for travelling, sorting your makeup or using as a change purse. I love the bag designs and use a lot of them for different things. I have also given some away to my sister and other friends.
I always had a new supply of mascara and lipstick coming in on a regular basis.
It’s not all makeup. I have received, hair products, nail polish and face products.
They are always the perfect size for travelling and putting in your carry on or personal item when flying.
I have a decent amount of eye shadow, concealer highlighter and face products that I have enjoyed using.
Sometimes the month’s bag will include eye shadow brushes.
The value of what you get is more than the $10 you pay each month for the bag.
https://www.ipsy.com/ also allows you to shop their products online and review what you have received.
See some of the products I have received and some of the cute makeup bags.
Although I do feel like I have received a varying amount of different products after some time, closer to the three year mark I started to feel that all the bags were the same and it was not as exciting as in the beginning. I still use much of the product I have pictured and really like most of the brands and products.
There have been a few times that a product was not good quality and was unusable.
Not a huge issue, but I did accumulate a lot of the makeup bags. I use quite a few of them for different things; travelling, holding essential oils, organizing the different products or holding tissues.
I think for $10 a month it is a good monthly subscription.
I like that you fill out a survey and the bag is picked based on that.
I believe that the value of the bag is more than the monthly cost making it a good value.
For those who are new to makeup or don’t want to spend a ton trying different high ends brands this is a really great way to try different brands and products to see what you like. Some of the samples are small and some are a very good size and last a long time.
I hope you found this review of the monthly Ipsy bag helpful.
