Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription where each month you receive a Glam Bag with around five samples focusing on makeup and sometimes nails or skin care. The cost is only $110 per year with occasional savings options, and you can purchase full sized items from your bag on your Ipsy account for a discount.
In this month’s bag:
- Kokie Cosmetics Nail Polish – value $6
- VASANTI COSMETICS POWER OILS LIP GLOSS in SUPER MOM – value $12?
- theBalm Cosmetics INSTAIN Long-Wearing Staining Powder Blush in Pinstripe – value $22
- Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream 20ml -value $28
- PÜR Mini Fully Charged Magnetic Mascara – value $12
Total value around $80?
Great bag! PÜR and theBalm are familiar brands. The VASANTI lip gloss is non-sticky. I have not tried the Kokie nail polish yet. I received a bright blue color, and I just have SO MUCH blue polish these days. I am most excited with the Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Recovery Cream. After spending the past couple months healing from a broken leg, my skin is trashed. Plus, this cream does not burn my face like some do. This glam bag was full of great items with a nice value. Not to mention finally a summer bag without self tanner!

Beauty box 5 is a beauty subscription box with 4-6 sample size (and sometimes full sized) beauty products like makeup and toiletries.
It is $12 a month by the month, $10 a month with a 3-month subscription, or $8.25 a month with an annual subscription. Sometimes the value of the box can be six times what I pay for a subscription!
In June’s box:
- Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner – value $6.99
- Prestige Cosmetics My Biggest Lashes Mascara – value $7.50
- DID hair Jeweled Hair Tie Set – value $7.50
- Laritzy Lip Pencil – value $ 18
- Coastal Scents Revealed 3 palette sample- value $4
Total value $44.99.
The coastal Scents sample came in some nice charcoal and plum shades. it is a low cost shadow, but stays put fine when you use an eye primer. The Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner has some serious pigment and goes on generously. It also smudges and smears generously before it is dry, so give it a minute before moving! After it dries though, it stays pretty well. Prestige is your basic drug store level mascara, and there is nothing wrong with that. The DID hair ties are cute. The only higher end item was the Laritzy Lip Pencil and I think the $18 price on a non-mechanical pencil is kind of ridiculous anyway. This was a fun box with useful drug store level items. It might have been lower value, but the items are all nice and even in my color palette.
