ipsy January 2018 Subscription Box Review & Try On

You know your monthly ipsy Glam Bag has arrived when you have a metallic pink shipping envelope in your mail box! With every ipsy delivery, you’ll receive an adorable collectible makeup bag and 5 products.Ipsy Shipping Bag and Glam Bag


With your ipsy glam bag and products, you may also receive product info. cards or just one card with a mini description of the current month’s theme. Pamphlets/information cards seem to vary month-to-month with ipsy.

This month a simple card was included. One side featured the statement: I will conquer ______________. How would you fill in the blank?

The other side revealed this month’s theme: Game Face. This month is all about strength, inside and out!

The Beauty Quiz taken when you subscribe to ipsy will determine which products you receive in your bag. Reviewing each product received will further refine the selections made for your bag the following month. Ipsy makes every effort possible to give you products you’ll not only want to try, but that you’ll be excited to try.
Completing reviews will also give you points. Points can be redeemed for bonus products in your glam bag. Bonus products range from 250 – 600 points, reviewing each product will earn you 15 points. You can also earn points by referring new subscribers and by following/subscribing to ipsy and its creators on social media.


The ipsy Break Down:

Cost: This box will cost you $10.00 per month. Each box contains 5 sample size beauty, hair and skin care products, along with the occasional beauty tool, all in a collectible bag.

Cancellation: If you want to cancel your box after subscribing, you can on the ipsy.com site. You’ll be asked several times if you’re sure that you want to cancel, and then sent an e-mail with a link you’ll need to click to finalize the cancellation.

Bottom Line:  I have a love/hate relationship with ipsy, I subscribe for a few months then decide I don’t like it and unsubscribe. Then I subscribe again when I see what other beauty influencers are getting and I suffer from severe FOMO (fear of missing out)! Immediately after re-subscribing this month I thought, UGH, why did I just do that? But, after receiving this month’s bag I’m so happy about what I got that I’m going to keep the subscription, for another month at least . . .

What is your favorite beauty subscription box? Please let me know in the comments below, I’m always looking for new ones to try!
