To save money, I have been trying to cut down on monthly subscription packages. Honestly, I’m quite a fan of these options because I do feel like they save me money in the long run for the things I use on a regular basis. I did cancel my subscription to Fabletics and Shoedazzle after enjoying them for years. However, I’m not yet willing to part with my subscription to Ipsy.
I used to get the glam bag every month, but now I use the every other month feature. This is helpful because I still get to enjoy the perks without having to spend the money each month. For $12 every other month I get 5 different sample items based on my beauty profile.
I’m not a huge makeup buff, and I think that’s why I love it so much. I get to try new products and see which things I like without having to invest a lot of money on makeup. So, for me, this is enough to keep my supply going for the year.
The makeup also comes in a cute little bag. I have a box of re-gift items where I store things and so I use the bags to give people and put jewelry in them or little candles for birthdays. So, not only am I getting to try out makeup, but I get a little item to gift someone else each time I order.
Another great thing about Ipsy is that you can choose which types of products you’d like to receive. You can add nail polish, perfume, and skin care items.
I will share two of my favorite recent products here. This Illamasqua foundation is one of the best ones that I’ve received in my Ipsy bags. I don’t usually wear foundation, but this was lightweight and blended in really nicely.
I love my Kiss and Smink matte creme lip crayon. I actually ordered a second one. I couldn’t believe the amazing deal I got on this for being a member of Ipsy.
So, no, I’m not a paid sponsor of Ipsy, but I do love the products and the concept and have been a loyal customer for years. So you can check out Ipsy here if you want to learn more!
