ipsy Glam Bag | Make-Up Review

I know; my poor blog has been neglected this month. Between catching a cold and keeping up with all of my commitments (some of which entered into my weekly blog time) I have yet to get a post up. However, this has given me time to truly give my ipsy subscription a chance before writing this post.

What is ipsy? 

As you may have gathered from my photos, ipsy is a make-up subscription.  Once a month they send you five make-up products (and a cutsey bag) based on your own preferences.  This is my fourth month, and I have been so pleased with my experience I thought I would share it with you!

When you first sign up for your ipsy "Glam Bag" they have you take a quick but thorough quiz to get a feel for your beauty preferences.  This little questionnaire gives them a feel for your favorite types of make-up, skin type and color, sensitivities, brands you are partial too, hair type, and products you love! With all of this in mind, the people at ipsy assemble your Glam Bag based on your personal style.

Once a month, they send you the Glam Bag, which consists of one make-up bag and 5 beauty products based on your prestated preferences.  This could include mascara, lipstick, foundation, nail polish, hair products, face masks, and the list goes on.  

Once your Glam Bag comes in, and you have time to test out and enjoy your products, you get the option to review the items.  The brand, the product, and how it personally works for you are all included in your review, which then goes to help them decide how to better choose your next bag.  Let me say, I decided to actually follow up with reviews this time (something I am usually quite forgetful about) and I am so glad I did! My bags are improving every month and I am loving my make-up products.

Also, I cannot forget one of my favorite parts of this subscription: it is only $10 per month! And yes, the shipping is free! On top of that, every review you post works towards your points system.  Enough points earned equals a bonus gift in your Glam Bag for the month you decide to redeem them.  Along with reviews, you can also earn points by telling your friends, which is exactly what I am doing here! So I will leave you with my own personal referral link, in case you decide you would like to join ipsy yourself (which I highly recommend if you are interested in trying out new make-up products in a fun and affordable fashion!)
