Back in May, I found out about subscription services. All kinds can be found for anything you'd like from makeup, food to pet stuff. You pay a set price per month (either s&h is included or not) and they send you a box or bag filled with either samples or full size products to try.
Ipsy ( http://www.ipsy.com/ ) used to be called MyGlam. For just $10 a month that you can cancel any time, you can get a custom made bag and around 5 pieces of full size or sample makeup. Also included is a card telling you that if you go to your MyGlam page (on the website) there will be codes to get discounts on the products you an receive in the bags.
This is this month's bag, apparently the print on my is backwards but isn't that a really gorgeous color? My phone doesn't show how really deep and nice it is.
(Soon I'll have a nice phone..soooo soon)
Some people still haven't gotten their bags so what I received is below the jump. Why the hush hush? The products we get are always a surprise. There are teaser photos on the Ipsy Facebook page but you don't really know til it arrives. There's always one or two products that won't be the same as someone else's bag as I'll talk about below. They are based on a quiz you take when you sign up and they try to cater the bag to what you like.
Everything that was sent to me are listed below plus the full size price from each item's respective website.
Noya Lip Balm in Vanilla
Pixi Beauty Lash Booster Mascara (sample? its pretty small)
MicaBeauty EyeShadow in Bronze
Chella Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Color Pencil
