I've mentioned before my love of sample programs. I've tried (and left) Birchbox, Sample Society and Eco Emi. Eco Emi was probably the best of these but also the priciest. Birchbox and Sample Society were always hit or miss. I rarely had more than one or two samples in a box that I liked, the samples were ridiculously small or unsuitable to my skin/hair type/color (why do they have you fill out a beauty profile if they aren't going to use it?!) So for a while I was off the sample boxes. Then I started to notice a lot of YouTubers talking about Ipsy and how much they had improved since their GlamBag days. I decided to give it a try.
I just received my second bag this week and am delighted.
All in all, I got well over the value of the $10 I spent on this bag even with the two dud products. Last month (which I didn't photograph or post about) was really good as well. I love that Ipsy is including some full size products along with generous size samples. They seem to be paying attention to the beauty profiles too as the products and colors I'm receiving are mostly ones I may actually use.
