Ipsy seems to be one of those things that people either really love, or really hate.
So here are some of the pros and cons of this bag.
Pro. This is delivered in a cute little bag, that you can use for many different things. Such as a makeup bag to hold and sort your new little goodies. To keep your on-the-go makeup kit on hand in your purse. or be a little clutch.
Con. There shipping is Really Slow. My bag was shipped on the 23rd. And it won’t be here until tomorrow or the day after.
Pro. It’s cheap. It’s only $10 a month. (U.S. only. Shipping fees for Canada.) with no Shipping fee. (Hence slow shipping above.) But that’s almost like paying for the bag and getting the makeup for free.
Con. Sometimes the wait list takes a while. there is always a “Skip the wait list” option where you share stuff about them on your social media about them to help get the word out. And BOOM You’re off the wait list and will get your bag next month.
Con/Pro. You get to try new things. This could be good, or bad depending on how adventurous you are. When you sign up the fist thing you do is take a beauty quiz telling what you like. Only problem is when you skip clicking on something that you don’t like, it doesn’t guarantee that you won’t get that item. They sometimes send you something you didn’t specifically say that you like so you can try something new. I never would have known I like liquid lipstick. Lip scrubs are awesome. Or what a Mood Matcher lipstick even was without this service.
Pro. Points. Every time you review one of the items you get in your bag, you get points. if you let these build up enough than you can get some Really cool stuff to come as a bonus with your next bag. (I’ve gotten a full size brush and a full size leave in conditioner. for only 250 points each. Which is actually really low.)
Pro/Con. The size of the products you get. Sometimes you get. Sometimes you can get a bag that pretty much everything is full size or deluxe size. Sometimes you get a bag full of tiny stuff. It just depends on what is in the bags that month.
Con/Pro. Most bags are different. Sometimes you may see someone how got the exact same stuff as you in their bag. But not always. So, because of this if you and some friends or family are all subscribed too Ipsy. If some of you don’t like what you got in your own bag, but like what your friend got you can set up a trade. So all of you are happy.
Pro/con. So yes sometimes you won’t get name brand items. (It’s ten dollars. Don’t always expect name brand full size items for ten dollars.) But if you get a drug store brand not only does that mean that if you love the product and run out it won’t cost you an arm and a leg to get more.
Yes sometimes Ipsy is a gamble. But I think it’s fun. And I love to try new makeup. I’ve been with Ipsy Since October 2015 and hope to be one for a long time.
