The theme and bag for the August 2016 Ipsy Glam was aborable. When I saw the bag spoilers many moons ago (actually, it was probably like...two moons at most), I thought that this was going to be a great bag. When people starting posting their bags on Instgram, my excitement remained because there were some interesting products that I wanted to try/already knew I would.
Ipsy is a $10 a month beauty/makeup subscription service that sends you five deluxe/full sized beauty products inside a unique makeup bag. You get more full sized products in Ipsy, but you also get more drugstore/online-only brands. Ipsy also has a point system where you earn reward points for reviews and referrals, but the variety of products you can exchange them for is limited and the most desirable products 'sell out' quickly.
Overall, I got four deluxe sized sample products, a full sized nail polish, and a free set of ManiGuards with a total value of about $49.43, which is pretty typical for Ipsy. I'm disappointed with three out the five products, but on the flip side, the two products I do like are worth about $30 on their own, which is over half the value of my bag (and three times what I even paid for it). This was not a great bag, but, in the end, it wasn't the worst bag ever, either.
