Ipsy July 2013 Review – Makeup Subscription Box
Every month my Ipsy bag arrives in this bright pink package (just like the Ellie subscription!) If you are looking for an inexpensive makeup subscription program, I definitely recommend Ipsy. It’s on the low range of prices for subscriptions ($10) and usually most products are full or deluxe size!
Each month comes with a makeup bag as well. This clear plastic barbie-pink bag is great for the beach – very fitting since the theme this month is Beach Beauty!
The Box: Glam Bag by Ipsy
The Cost: $10 a month (free shipping)
The Products: Full size and samples of makeup and beauty products.
Each month comes with a card – but it’s a little different than the typical subscription box card. Instead of describing the products in your bag, they have coupon codes and offers from all the brands you may receive in your Ipsy bag that month:
It’s kind of a tease to see other products you didn’t get – but at least there are discount offers if you want to buy something you missed. (I was hoping for Benefit in this bag).
Pop Pouty Pop Crayon in Coral Crush -Value $5?
Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray – 50 mL Value $6.67
Hm – I could only find this Pop Crayon in a set, so I’m not sure what the exact value should be.
Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Mai Tai – Value $13
FYI – The Selena Gomez nail polish is a bonus item I earned this month for referring two people to Ipsy. While the plum color feels a little more fall than summer to me, I can’t wait to try out this bright coral shade – it screams summer pedi to me!
Coola Mineral Sunscreen Tinted Moisturizer – .25 oz Value $5
I think this Coola moisturizer is my favorite item in the July bag. I love that it’s organic and paraben-free, and the tint gives just enough coverage to replace a BB Cream or foundation.
Verdict: I paid $10 for the July Ipsy bag, and I received about $40 worth of product. I’m always impressed with the value of Ipsy bags! What did you get in your July Ipsy Bag and what item was your favorite?
