Quick run-down of the Ipsy Glam Bag: $10 a month beauty subscription service; five deluxe sized/full sized products; more likely to get full size products, but also more likely to be lower quality; tends to have more color cosmetics than other comparable services; there is a point/rewards system but the points expire and you can only use them towards specific offers which can, and will, sell out; a unique makeup bag each month.
Overall, in my February 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag, along with my Shadow Shields that I purchased with reward points, I got two full sized items and three deluxe sized samples (one of which, according to Ipsy, I've gotten before and was unable to review for points). The total value of this bag is $73.42. That's an amazing value for a subscription box, especially one that costs only $10, but it also highlights another problem that I have with Ipsy; a lot of the brands/products sampled are significantly overpriced. It's a common retail tactic to list the suggest retail price as one thing, and then to constantly have the product on sale/special to entice people to think they are getting a deal, when in reality the "sale" price is the price the company actually wants to sell the product for. I don't think it's wrong, nor underhanded since it's a pretty transparent practice, but it does lead to inflated Ipsy bag values and I think it's important to be aware of that.
