Ipsy Review – April 2016

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

ipsy-april-2016-

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!

This is one of my top recommendations if you are looking for a beauty box – the value and sample sizes are amazing. (Check out my list of the Top Beauty Boxes for 2016 and our reviews of Cheap Subscription Boxes for more recommendations!)

(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).

ipsy-april-2016-bag

Each month ipsy subscribers get a makeup bag in addition to their 5 items. This month’s design isn’t my favorite, but it’s not bad!

Now onto the items!

ipsy-april-2016-brush

Crown Brush C427 Duo Fiber Blush Brush – Value $9.50

I somehow manage to get makeup brushes in almost all of my ipsy bags and I’m always happy to have more! This one has two indents to make holding the brush easier too:

ipsy-april-2016-indents

ipsy-april-2016-tarte

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Blush + Contour Palette – FULL SIZE! Value $18

I was surprised to see that this is full-size since it is on the smaller side for a blush/bronzer – only 2 grams. I’m also a little bummed that it got a little destroyed in shipping, but I should be able to fix it with some rubbing alcohol.

The pigment is good, but not too heavy – good for building color but not accidentally overdoing contouring. (Swatched below)

tarte cosmetics LipSurgence™ lip crème in wonder – 1.6 g Value $12

Yay for tarte! This was one of the spoilers this month, and I finally got a tarte item in my ipsy bag! The color is pretty bold, but I can tone it down a little with doing just a quick swipe on my lips. Plus I love the minty flavor!

Swatched here:

ipsy-april-2016-swatch

ipsy-april-2016-nail-polish

Nth Degree Moroccan Argan Oil & Keratin Hair Serum – 10 ml Value $1.40

This serum/oil can be used on wet or dry hair, smells great, and gave my hair some shine – all good!

Adesse New York Organic Infused Nail Lacquer in Irina – FULL SIZE! Value $18

At first, I wasn’t too excited about getting another nail polish from Ipsy – even though I love a good grey/lavender creme! But then I read that this is a gel-effect polish and gets great reviews for not chipping, so I can’t wait to try it!

Verdict: This box has a value of about $59. That’s amazing for a $10 subscription box (And that’s not counting the value of the makeup bag!) I wish my blush/bronzer duo would have arrived in one piece, but besides that I really like every single item – I’m very happy with my bag this month!

What do you think of the April Ipsy Glam Bag? Which products did you get this month?

  1. I finally cancelled my Ipsy after the February box. It just doesn’t feel like they look at your preferences at ALL. I’d gotten makeup brushes in so many bags, and I didnt check makeup boxes on my profile because I don’t want them.

    I just got sick of Ipsy. I’ve already got Birchbox and they seem to cater to me more. Plus the customer service is AMAZING, and I build up points to spend really quickly.

    Boxycharm I also love because they send out bigger products.

    And ALLURE. Allure has to be my fav right now because they send the fanciest stuff in deluxe or full-size and they have so many extra boxes that they randomly send out as a surprise. I randomly got a SK-II mask and essence a couple months ago! That’s over $100 worth of product right there!

    • How much does the Birchbox cost? I have been looking for monthly boxes like these for a long time, but have always been skeptical of them. I was able to find prices of the others.

  2. I loved everything I have gotten so far for months now except the tart lip color in my April glam bag…..they didn’t look at the color of my skin……very disappointing

  3. I have been disappointed by my Ipsy bag for the past few months. If they don’t step it up in May then I will cancel. Mind you, the price is great and the bag is nice, but I would rather receive fewer items that I will actually use instead of five items that I do not use much of. BIrchbox, Glossy, and How to be a Redhead are kicking butts and I use to feel that Ipsy set the precedence.

    • I hadn’t heard the How to be a Redhead put out a box!!! OMG As soon as I red (get it? Red? Haha ok, sorry, im done.) your comment i rushed over and sure enough, there it was!

      What kinds of things have you gotten in boxes? I cant find any reviews on here.

  4. Tarte lip crayon,
    Crown brush,
    Skin & Co. Truffle Serum,
    blush and contour duo,
    starlooks blk eyeliner
    .This was my first month and I love everything. I was super surprised to get so many things I loved and would use! Thanks ipsy!

  5. <3 Tarte lip, Crown brush, Ren day cream, Trust Fund Beauty Highlighter, Pur-lisse sheet masks – used points for Nude serum as an add-on. Great haul.

  6. I think the fun thing about these subscriptions is trying different things, including things that take you out of your comfort zone. It is a grab bag, you never know what you are going to get, I say enjoy it. If you really need a particular item, in a particular color, then your money is best spent going to purchase that item. If you are excited to try whatever you get, or gift it to someone else, this is fun to do! I have loved my ipsy bags, if I can’t use something, I pass it on. With what I do use, I certainly get more than my money’s worth. Love it!!!

  7. really have not enjoyed the last few bags, glossybox is so much better that i am seriously considering canceling ipsy. also, does anyone who subscribes to ipsy have ENOUGH makeup bags? i don’t need or want any more. i emailed them to suggest they offer a sub w/o the bag, more items. they ignored this.

  8. I guess I’m not hard to please, a lipstick and a brush is enough to make it a good bag for me. But after every review I feel like they’ve been getting better and better, this month being the best so far. Check it out: Buxom liquid lipstick, Ren Day Cream, Lab Blending brush, Purlisse sheetmasks? AND a Nudestix cheek and lip pencil!!!! So happy.

    • You bag was exactly what I would have wished for. Would you care to share what your profile is? If this is representative of what they usually pick for you, I want to be just like you!

      • I went to check because I have never changed or retaken the quiz since setting it up. Here it goes: eyes-brown. hair-dark brown. Skintone-medium. Looks- classic, edgy, bridal, simple. Very adventurous. Stylist- desi, christen, lustrelux. Loved products- lipstick, primer, brushes& tools. Most loved skin, hair, and nailcare: moisturizer, mask, serum, exfoliators, face oil, eye treament. Skin concerns- fine lines, oily &large pores. Hair type- needs volume, frizzy(contradicting?). Thats all of it hope it helps.

      • I got the very same bag. Light skin tone, hazel eyes, dark brown hair, Styles – classic, professional, sultry, and formal; Stylist – Christen; Somewhat comfortable, somewhat adventurous; I have almost all brands checked that you like/want to try; Makeup you love – eyeshadow, brows, concealer, powder, brushes/tools; Other products you use the most – exfoliants, masks, lip balm; Skin concerns – oiliness & large pores; Hair – needs volume, dry, split ends.

        • Thank you so much for your help!
          l I will try your profile for next month and see what I get.

    • Me too girlfriend I got the buxom and nudestix… Purlisse mask which I love purlisse and a full size highlight trio and awesome nail polish!! I have to say being a beauty box expert and subscriber of many…. Ipsy is the best bang for your buck! It blows birchbox away as far as full size products and I think ipsy and boxycharm are the king and queen of beauty box subscriptions! Just saying I’m in serious love with ipsy for over two years and I love the little bags they are great for gift giving!!!

  9. I was very happy with my bag this month. (No mascara and no hair products are always a reason for me to celebrate!) Here’s what was in my Ipsy this month:
    City Color Highlight Trio compact (cute!) $8.95
    Luxie Tapered Highlighter brush #522 $24.00
    REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream 1.02 oz tube $27.00
    Tarte “Wonder” (poppy) LipSurgence lip cream 0.56 oz stick (half of full size) $12.00
    Skin & Co. Truffle Serum 0.17 oz. tube $12.50
    Total value of my bag was $84.45, I like all the products (‘cept the Tarte is a little too bold a color for me, like Liz also said, but I’m thrilled with my bag!

  10. I cancelled ipsy because I was getting too many tools and brushes, which I can’t use due to allergies. I emailed ipsy (many times and with multiple follow-ups) and they gave me some guidelines that others may find useful. 1. You can’t deselect items. Even if you don’t check a category you may still get that item. Like with the brushes. They stated their goal is to get you to try items you might not try otherwise. To me this was unacceptable.
    2. The fewer categories you check the better your chances of receiving items in those categories. So if you really want eyeshadows; only check eyeshadow, not eyeshadow , lipstick, and liner.
    3. The products you review on the ipsy site have an impact on what you receive. This may actually work against you. For example, if the first 2x you recieved red lipstick you liked them and reflected that in your review, surprise you have increased your chance of receiving another red/bold lipstick.
    I tried their suggestions and found I recieved more items I liked. But I had to give poor scores to products I liked but did not want more of; which made me feel bad and made the reviews not as useful to others.
    I agree with others ipsy needs to expand thier brand selection.

    • Thank you so much for all the info! I just started my subscription with ipsy so I will apply this technique to get items that I will really love!

    • Just joined ipsy this month and my bag was pretty good. I’m just wondering what you put on your profile because your bag sounds amazing and you have had great luck and some of these other people have horror stories. Lol. I hope it’s not too personal.

  11. I canceled after getting this bag. I’ve received one too many nail polishes I won’t use. I need to use up some products anyway. In the meantime, I hope to get off the wait list for Sephora.

    • There isn’t a wait list anymore. You can go and subscribe now!!!!

      • Boo. I just tried again and got the ‘no spots available’ message. Hopefully I’ll get signed up soon.

        • I tried it the day it was announced here that there were open, but got the “no spots available” message on both accounts, the one I am already waiting for a year and a new one. I was pretty bummed all day. But then I realized hey it’s no biggie; I do have other subs to look forward to.

    • Just joined
      Sephora and I was doing a comparison of last five months ipsy vs sephora and ipsy seems to NEVeR send stupid perfume samples and you get three full size items always. I got $90 bag from ipsy in April 2016 it was amazing!!

  12. Hi Liz,
    I had received a broken eyeshadow once, and even though I took a whole month to let them know, they were very understanding of it, and sent me a replacement immediately! You could email their customer service. Hope this helps!

  13. Hi Ladies,

    Does anyone feel that Ipsy favors more (sends the best items) to the people who have a lot of followers via social media accounts, bloggers, review products, etc….?
    I had Ipsy about a year or so ago, and I always felt like I got the short end of the stick, I would always see pictures of other people’s bag and they always received the best products, my bag always seemed to lack. They got the whole pie I got the leftovers, lol.
    I would review the products, but I’m not on any social media platform, and I wondered if that always hurt my chances of getting a really cool bag, anyone else feel the same?

    I want to get another low cost monthly makeup subscription again, and I’m waiting on Sephora play – so I am debating about resubscribing to Ipsy, but I’m unsure. Thank you for any feedback!

    • I only comment here and have a private IG and sometimes I get stuff I’m not huge of, and other times they hit the nail on the head. I’ve had the sub since Oct 2011 I believe.

      • I’m just a 47-year old gal with no social media beauty following & they’ve been rocking my bag for the past 6 months I’d say. It took them a while to get a better groove from my reviews, but it worked!

        So no, I don’t think there’s any “favoring” going on. But I do have to wonder about the complaining & “expectations.” It’s a $10 sub box. What do the complainers really expect out of it?!?!?

        • Complainers want to be able to tell Ipsy what NOT to send. It would be different if they just said, “You will get a random selection of colors that will not suit you”. But they don’t…they have you go through a decent profile exercise that makes you believe that you might be able to get a couple of items that you may actually use. $10 may be inconsequential to you, but for some of us, that $10 could be better used at Sephora, or to get a Julep box ever other month. Also, these are not premium brands for the most part, and I can get comparable deluxe samples from online retailers for free if I purchased enough.
          Ipsy is setting the expectation level, and their process seems to be failing for a lot of subscribers.

        • I’m 48, have little social media, and they have been giving me great things in my bag, too!! I signed up Jan 2016 and so far ipsy has been great!

          • I feel the same as Pepper. I am 49 and my first bag was this January. I have a Facebook but I don’t use it to post about beauty products or subscriptions. Maybe it’s beginner’s luck, but my last 2 bags have been stellar with a higher value than the reviewer’s bag here on MSA. So no, I can’t imagine there is any preferential treatment because if so, it seems like the bag under review each month would top everyone else’s.

    • I do not have any social media presence (not even a Facebook) and my bag was not too bad this month. I got an annoying black eyeliner but everything else works for me. I got the same Tarte product, the Trust Fund highlighter stick, a L.A.B blending brush, and a decent face serum.

    • I don’t think having social media makes a difference. When I started with Ipsy over a year ago my bags were awful. I always got stuff that I specifically put I don’t like in my quiz (hair products, perfume samples) and never got anything that I loved, like lipstick, which is something they always have at least one to send out every month. I was about to cancel my sub when I started reviewing the products on ipsy’ website wondering if it make a difference and I can honestly say that the more I reviewed, the more I started liking to loving my bags. This month I received the Tarte LipSurgence, City Color Highlight Trio, the Pur-lisse Beauty masks, ProBelle nail polish and the Crown Duo Fibre brush. I will use everything in this bag compared to when I look at the bags back before I reviewed, I would use maybe a couple or none of the products I got.

      • I always reviewed my bags, from Nov. 2014 to Nov. 2015, and still got a bunch of stuff I hated (brands I hate, lip stains that were a horrible shade for my skin tone, products that reaked, etc.). I did get a few things I liked (e.g. brushes, a Spellbound nail polish, etc.), but there were some months when I liked nothing at all, so I had to cancel. I have and like Birchbox, but I’d like to get Sephora or Macy’s too since Birchbox sends mostly skin stuff and I want more variety. And I like Target too but can never seem to order before it sells out.

    • I was told the secret is less is more when it comes to the quiz. Initially I said I love everything and I got crappy bags. Then I went back and said I only like tools and nail polish and picked Michelle as my favorite vlogger/stylist. This seemed to make all the difference. Supposedly if you have too many things selected you end up saying you don’t mind weird cheap crap like false eyelashes and hairspray.

    • No, I don’t feel that way. I’m a nobody on the internet and my bag is almost always identical to what’s reviewed here. I’ve been subscribing for over a year now. I do feel that way about some other boxes, though.

    • I can tell you with absolute certainty that does NOT happen. I have 0% social media and I get amaIng bags every month. It’s about your profile and reviews which they pay special attention too! I got buxom …nudestix…purlisse…highlight trio.. Nail polish worth about $90 this month and I sent them an email thanking them again! They do sometimes send out something I don’t like but I just re gift it and move on to the other wonderful products!! I like my bag better than Liz’s most of the time so please know ipsy absolutely does not favor bloggers. They treat everyone equal!

  14. If you receive a damaged item from Ipsy, just email their customer service and they’ll make it right. They are very easy to work with 🙂

    • I agree! I’ve emailed them before just to say something was defective or something, just an FYI, not even asking for a replacement, and they’ve always taken care of me. They’re great…especially for a TEN dollar box! Love Ipsy.

  15. I got the tarte, brush and same nail polish and my sister tried it. I thought it looked more purple online, but I love that it’s more of a slate color. The color looks great on.

  16. I love my items this month (bag itself not so much).
    *Tarte lip crayon $12
    *Trust Fund highlighter $20
    *Luxie Brush $24
    *Ren mositurizer $27
    *Briggeo overnight hair treatment 0.33 oz sample $4.62 calculated based on full size 2 oz selling for $28
    $87.62 value is absolutely amazing for a $10 bag and I like everything in it a lot. i know subscriptions like this can be the luck of the draw but this is my 4th bag and they get better each month. I have not tweaked my profile – fingers crossed that they keep this up!

  17. I thought the bag was ugly, and the minty smell and tingle of the tarte was awful. Loved the Trust Fund highlighter and the Purlisse sheet masks. Will gift the Starlooks black eyeliner, because I have plenty, and the Crown Brush blush brush, because I already have three blush brushes, and I think the Luxie blush brush ipsy gave me before is better. Not a bad month (80% of my items were full size), but not outstanding. Tarte seems way overhyped to me.

  18. Love my Ipsy bag!!!
    I got Morrocan hair oil, Jor’el Parker mud mask, l.a.b. Blending brush, Ofra shadow (so pretty!!) and the Tarte Lipsurgence. And it all matched perfectly with my bag haha oranges and teals >.<

  19. I was way happier with my 2nd month. A good tip to point out. I thought I only had 4 items and I was good. For some reason I didn’t throw the shipping envelope out yet….THANK GOODNESS. I happened to log into my ipsy and pull up the glam bag to try and learn more about the products an it showed I received a brush. I thought um…..there was not a brush in my bag (last month it was in the cosmetic bag) so I grabbed the envelope and squeezed it…and the brush WAS IN THE ENVELOPE at the bottom, not the cosmetic bag. I received…
    Crown blush brush
    Tarte Lipsurgence in wonder
    Starlooks cream eyeshadow in rose gold (hmmmm…and couldn’t find online anywhere, in strange package because I’ve never seen one like it. Will open soon, it looks similar to a mini lip gloss packaging or liquid eyeliner…not eyeshadow….vey interesting to me)
    Ren skincare global protection day cream
    Moroccan oil- hair

    • That Ren sample is awesome. I got it too, and it’s 3/5 the full size (RV $45), so works out to $27 for the cream alone!

      • I know, figured the RV right away and was shocked. The creams seem to be coming…just when winter is finally over ?. I’m excited to have gotten this versus the cream in the Boxycharm and I really wanted to get it so that was my win. I don’t mind the price as long as the product works. I just got a few things from the Kate Somerville line at Sephora (talk about price…cough, lol). I really needed a change in my skincare on my face and so far so good with the gentle exfoliating wash,Mega C serum, and I think daily deflector 50spf moisturizer. I also got a few murad treatments for nighttime.

  20. Best thing about ipsy are the brushes. I got the Luxie highlighter brush and its a nice soft brush. The only other item I liked was the skinn eyeliner, really brightens my eyes.
    I also received the Nth degree and tarte; my hair is already shiny on its own so don’t need that and the tarte crayon I’ve had full sizes of before and they were not my faves. In addition also received a nomad shadow which is sitll in its package.

    Hoping to swap those 3 for something I will use instead.

    For next month I hope they include a lip tarteist, they are so good and I love minis since they easily fit in my small bags.

    • That’s awesome.. I was really hoping to get the skinn liner to try. I got a Luxie last month, love it. Was hoping for the Luxie again ? But didn’t get either. Still happy with what I did get.

  21. Yes how many black eyeliners can one person use,unless it’s a different color I don’t need anymore .Although I always pretty much enjoy my ipsy bag

  22. I am glad that some people liked the Tarte crayon. It’s a horrible color on me altogether. I have changed my profile to the opposite that I am…perhaps I’ll get some items that I’ll keep for once. I am wondering if the problem is with their questionnaire, or I just don’t know how I am supposed to describe myself. I’ll give them one more try, and if it’s bad agsin, I’m out.

  23. i received the same brush .. the tarte lipstick… nth degree hair serum… trust fund that glo tho… and the ren daily calming cream…. i thought the tarte was going to be more of a pink tint when i looked up the color of it but i am still totally happy other than that… i really like ipsy and every month when i look through the stuff there is maybe one thing that i would change …i couldn’t be happier with it!!!

    • Sounds like we got near identical boxes, I got the two Purlisse masks instead of the hair serum…the value on the other four items adds up to $68.50 which is insane. I think this month was my highest value Ipsy ever.

      • same here… i love my ipsy bags they seem to get better every month for me.. my first 3 months were kinda shaky but after that it’s been awesome… they still haven’t hit the right color lipstick/gloss for me but i still can’t complain..

  24. Compared to my POPSUGAR box I’m not mad 10 bucks I will continue. Although I don’t get it I scroll down to see what else was given out and I’m like that’s more me than this. I hv taken the quiz over & over. The things I get I hv not been happy or wowed but I’m hoping it will get better. But after getting my popsugar box all is forgiven.

  25. Just wondering how much do people use as the RV for the bags by themselves?

    • In terms of swaps? I don’t give them much value, I take into account how common it is to find one or if the design is particular nice (like the cosmic one for me was great, or the more lovey floral prints). I list the ones I don’t want and if someone requests one I usually just disregard it with a larger swap or ask for a smaller sample item, since it’s only a $10 sub and no way to really assign a value to the bags.

      • Wow I can’t type tonight. *particularly and *lovely

  26. My bag was good this month, but I still canceled because I finally got off the waitlist for Sephora play. I don’t think I’ll regret the decision.

    • I got my first ipsy this month and was very unimpressed. I was going to give it another month but I got off the Sephora list too. No more ipsy. Not a fan of having to share and follow all the social media stuff for points.

      • You don’t have to follow…but something cool is that if you follow, you get points, then you can unfollow, and the next month you can get all the points again : )

        • It was the need to share everything on social media. To get off their nonexistent wait list, to see what you’re getting before it’s shipped, and to get points on reviews. If I loved the products and the points could be used for something better I probably wouldn’t be complaining.
          I know I sound whiny. I think Birchbox spoiled me.

  27. I also received the same blush brush & Tarte lip creme. I was floored when I found out the Trust Fund That Glo Tho highlighter I received is full size! I also received Juliette Has a Gun “Not a Perfume,” along with Novex Deep Conditioning Hair Mask. I love my Ipsy bags lately! Mind was about a $57 value this month! Woo hoo!

  28. I was really happy with my bag this month. I got the tarte lip color, which is a little brighter than I would normally choose but looks fairly decent. Also got the L.A.B brush, the Pur-Lisse masks which I am really excited to try, the Ren skincare which is another great addition,and the Ofra eye shadow. All in all I am really happy with my selections for April!

  29. This is my first ipsy bag and I love it. I received:

    Tarte wonder lip creme
    pur-lisse Blue and White Tea and Blue Lotus and Seaweed Treatment Sheet Mask
    Tapered Duo Fiber Brush
    Nomad Eyeshadow in Desert Sands
    em Michelle Phan Eye Liner in Chocolate Dream
    Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Cheeks Blush in Peach Pink

  30. I cancelled after this month’s bag. On product overload, and getting too many of the same types of items. Another gold eyeshadow, another red lipstick, and another eyeshadow brush. The lipstick went in the trash. I will never wear that color. However, I really like the hair oil and facial moisturizer (again). I feel like after all the reviews I’ve given and how I set my preferences, I should be getting more skin care products (there seemed to be a bunch of great ones this month), yet I still got the same type of makeup I always get, and don’t need. So taking a break for awhile and going to try another subscription. I got Beauty Fix for the first time this month and LOVED it.

    • Unless damaged, or in some way unusable I keep everything. This week I’m putting together a bag for a very good friend who will love it. Things I can’t gift, but are still nice products go in my Christmas donation to the women’s shelter. I save cute bags that I won’t use, boxes, etc. I know it will be something special to a woman and/or teenager who could really use a treat or two in their lives.

      • Absolutely!!! Mother’s day is coming up…how nice would it be for a mother who doesn’t have a lot (or anything) to receive a nice gift for herself that she wouldn’t otherwise be able to have? Nice job : )

    • I also cancelled about two months ago. I have two Birchbox accounts, Beauty Fix, Boxycharm, and was accepted to Sephora last week. Ipsy’s questionnaire did not reflect any items that I would receive – ever. It was always brands I never heard of and I ended up giving everything away all the time. Plus, it was always duplicates. Birchbox’s points are the main reason I love them – and their products are higher quality.

  31. I feel like I am always getting eyeliner and lip crayons. I’d love to receive nail polish! I think I’ve only received one bottle in over two years. I got on Play by Sephora so I think my days at Ispy are numbered. I’d still suggest it to people who would like to try a low cost box, however.

  32. I feel like I always get the short end of the stick & the lowest value items they have

  33. I cancelled my ipsy. I’ve had a great run with them, but I’m in product overload. Of course 2 days after I cancelled Sephora Play! opened, and I’ve been trying religiously since 10am yesterday to get in (major fail so far!).

  34. I got the same brush and Tarte item, with a total value of $84.50. I loved everything in my bag this month too. I’m surprised at the value this month.

  35. I lurrrrrved my Ipsy bag this month. Tarte lip crayon, perfect color. Two Purlisse face masks. A gorgeous luxie brush. A Starlooks liquid eyeshadow and a probelle nail polish. ❤️❤️❤️

    • Oh, did you get that felt tip starlooks liner? I got that last year, it was awesome!

  36. I got the same Tarte lip pencil, but everything else was different. Some skin resurfacing pads, an eyeshadow from Ofret, a highlighting trio, and a face lotion from Briogeo. Overall, I’m pleased with this month’s bag – would have loved to get that makeup brush, but I’m already a makeup junkie, so I can’t complain about my existing stash. I definitely would pay $2 per item I receive!

  37. I was kind of underwhelmed by the April bag. But I still love getting this every month. It’s a little gift to myself. And $10 is an amazing price for what you get.

  38. I received three items I would use this month. That is an improvement over last month. I seem to get a black eyeliner every month. Different formulas but still black. I am happy with this month overall.
