About Ipsy

Ipsy is a monthly subscription that costs only $10 a month.  Each month, you receive a new Ipsy bag that is themed for that month.  When you sign up, there is a survey to do to and every month, Ipsy features 10-15 beauty products in their bags.  They use “IpsyMatch” and will send you 4-5 products (usually 5) of the 10-15 products that are featuring that month based on your survey answers.  That way you get products that are the best fit for you.  I love this because we don’t get to choose our products we send and chances are, you will get products that you will use.  You can also re-take the survey and change your answers at any time.

For example, you noticed that I got a couple hair care products right?  Well, even though I love hair care products, I would like to receive more cosmetic items.  So I re-took my survey and when it asked what kind of products I like, I unchecked hair care.

If you sign up, you may be put on a waitlist.  From you could be on the waitlist for a couple days, couple weeks, or a couple months.  I have noticed from reading comments on their facebook page from other Ipsy subscribers that the longest wait has been around 4-5 weeks.  You will not be charged until you come off the waitlist and your subscription actually starts.  They also have a really cool points program where you can earn points by reviewing the items you received and referring others to join.  The points can be redeemed for an extra free full size product that will come with your bag!

My thoughts so far?

Well, this is my first bag.  I was happy with it and loved the products that I received in it.  I got two full size products and a few great size deluxe samples.  The hair care items I could have done without but I still liked them.  Being my first bag, I was pretty pleased and can’t wait until next month for my next one!
