Ipsy Review – October 2014
Ipsy is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products, plus a cute makeup bag. I think it’s one of the best value beauty subscriptions and a great way to build out your makeup collection on the cheap!
(FYI – Just like Birchbox, Ipsy sends out many different variations of their bag each month – so my review is just one of the bag variations you might receive!)
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Ipsy
The Cost: $10 a month (free shipping)

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser – .5 oz Value $4
Albertini International Warm Love Pumpkin Exfoliating Mask – .5 oz Value $2.30
I fell in love with this cleanser thanks to the latest limited edition POPSUGAR Must Have box – it’s made with natural ingredients and smells like strawberries!
Figs & Rouge Rose Berry Hand Cream – 20 ml Value $6.50
StarLooks Lip Gloss Mini in Guilt Pleasure – Value $4?
Skone Cosmetics Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner – FULL SIZE! Value $15
This hand cream is very moisturizing, but I’m not sure if I love the scent yet. The starlooks lipgloss is surprisingly small for Ipsy, but still useable, and the eyeliner was pretty easy to apply – I’m a fan!
Verdict: This month my Ipsy bag has a value of about $32 – pretty low actually for Ipsy. I’m surprised to see there was only one full-size item in my bag this month, but I’m still pretty happy with this box because I like a lot of the brands they included. (I’ll take an Indie Lee sample over a full-sized Be A Bombshell product any day!) (And of course the bag itself is cute!)
What did you get in your Ipsy bag this month?
