The company I chose to sign up with was Ipsy. Yesterday, I received my first Glam Bag in the mail!
So what do you get when you sign up with Ipsy?
For $10 a month (plus $4.95 a month for shipping to me), subscribers receive a Glam Bag with samples and full-sized beauty products. You don't know what you're getting ahead of time. The only thing you know is that it follows a theme. This month's theme was Pretty in Pink.
What I got:
Sation Nail Lacquer (aka. nail polish)
Colour: Love At First Byte
Cost: can be found on Amazon.com for $5.00
Thoughts: I used the nail polish and I actually liked the colour. It's plain and simple which suits me.
Be a Bombshell Blush
Colour: Sweet Cheeks
Cost: $16 from beabombshellcosmetics.com
Thoughts: I was disappointed to get blush. I don't use blush; my cheeks are red enough as it is. On my Ipsy portfolio, I indicated that I don't want blush, so I'm not sure what the point of filling out the portfolio is.
MicaBeauty Mineral Eyeshadow
Cost: $14.95 from MicaBeauty.com (click here for the website and a better picture of the product)
Thoughts: I was happy to get the mineral eye shadow instead of the duo eye shadow (which some people got). I haven't tried it yet but I heard it stays on longer.
Sexy Hair Soy Renewal .85 fl oz
Cost: $12.99 off of eBay (for the .85 fl oz size)
Thoughts: I was hoping to get the other hair product they were giving out this month: Sexy Hair Powder Play
Powder Play is amazing. I've also run out of dry shampoo and could have used Powder Play as an alternative. Fortunately, Ipsy provides subscribers with a discount ($5 off a purchase of $25 or more of Sexy Hair products at ulta.com).
The whole Glam Bag, with the bag!
With the exception of the blush, I was pretty happy with what I got. I know some people didn't like the pink theme but I had no complaints. I'm excited for next month's already!
Total cost of bag: $48.94
How much I paid: $14.95
