Apparently everyone is feeling a little holographic this summer; even Ipsy!
Quick Run-Down: $10 a month beauty/makeup subscription service; five deluxe to full-size products from both drugstore and mid/high-end brands, plus a unqiue makeup bag; more likely to get color cosmetics and full sizes, but also more likely to receive products from online-only, not as well-known brands; get reward points for reviewing your products and referring people, but you can only spend them on certain rewards (which sell out if popular) and they expire after a year.
Overall, I got three deluxe sized samples and two full size products for a total value of $63.47, which is pretty standard for Ipsy. While I really like the products I got and I am going to get at least a little bit of use out of all of them (the only one I could see myself not using at all is the eye shadow, and that's only because I already have a lot of shadows like it, not because it is a bad shadow), $56 of that value are from the brush (which I could maybe see being worth $21, but I probably wouldn't pay more than $15 for it) and the face powder (unless this proves to be the greatest face powder I've ever used, I wouldn't pay $35 for it--a setting powder from Givenchy is about $136 an ounce and this powder ends up being about $250 an ounce). But, since I only paid $10 for this entire bag, I really feel like I got my money's worth. If you're looking for a cheap makeup thrill every month, Ipsy is a great choice!
