IPSY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE


ubscription services are very fun to experience! For three months I continued my subscription to Ipsy which, is a beauty box. It is $10 a month and comes with four to five travel size beauty samples, along with a fun makeup case. I'm not gonna lie, the makeup cases were the reason why I wanted to try Ipsy so badly, and my last month finally came with an adorable case - one that just screamed Ipsy to me! So since I was really able to see what Ipsy was like for three months straight, I thought I'd do a review and share my thoughts about it!

When you sign up they have you take a quiz to get to know your beauty taste ranging from the brand you like, the way your makeup is applied, nail polish brand you prefer, and what beauty products you'd like to receive. It's a very thorough quiz. However, I felt like Ipsy didn't follow through with what I selected all throughout my personalized quiz. Overall I wasn't pleased with Ipsy and the bag's I received for three months in a row. Instead I opened a case that had "no namer" brands, and products I would not use. It's safe to say that I spent my ten dollars only on a makeup case, because it's the only thing I didn't toss in the garbage.

                                     


My last month before I ended my subscription, was actually decent. I kept a few products this time, and item's I was in need of. Plus can I just say how cute this case is? I can't wait to use it for my purse! It's so summery and colorful - something I'll really enjoy using. Subscription services are so fun because of the whole surprise that comes with it, but the downfall is you don't know what you're getting. That was the case with this service. As much as I loved the price (compared to most) and also the fact that it includes a case + hot pink packages in the mail, it just wasn't worth it in the long run! If you enjoy all beauty products (unlike me) and are interested in trying a service you might want to give it a try for yourself because I do have many friends who love Ipsy very much. I'm so sad this service didn't work out for me and my makeup preference because I really do love the whole idea.

  1. I've been receiving Ipsy for about a year and a half now and, even though some months are better than others, I'll keep subscribing. For me though, I love and want to receive beauty, make-up, and nail polish, so it's always exciting. I did find that my bags got better after about 3-4 months of reviewing each product. If a certainly type of product really isn't something you want, you can check those boxes and leave a comment too. There's probably another subscription box that would be more of what you would want & use. :)

    1. Yes, for me (even though I love makeup) I really am not a lover of ALL makeup such as lipstick, blush, or even eyebrows! haha. So I suppose Ipsy is only for the hardcore makeup gals :)

  2. I've been with Ipsy for over a year, and it is give or take. It really helps to have several girlfriends with it too so you can trade. I love nail polish but never get it in my bag so a pal of mine who doesn't like it always trades me. I will say that my brand knowledge has expanded with them but sadly I think I'll be canceling soon too.

    1. Oh what a great idea - i bet trading is so much fun! That would most definitely make up for the products you don't love. Especially because I've seen Ipsy bag's that I would have loved to receive!
