September IPSY Bag Review

I kept hearing about those monthly subscription beauty boxes so I decided to give one a try. I choose IPSY since I knew so many people using it. The way it works is for $10 a month you receive a gift bag with 5 full-sized beauty products. Their website is very interactive where you can see other users post pictures and videos of how they used the products. It arrived in a pretty hot pink foil bubble wrap shipping envelope. I signed up on July 17 and got off the waitlist on Aug 26, and had my first bag arriving mid-Sept. However I got a shipping notification from IPSY after I already received the package and according to the shipping history online it was a week after it left their building.

When you sign up you fill out a quiz to customize the product types you'd like and they give you coupon codes to order from all the brands they send you. I have to say I was underwhelmed with my package. First  I was disappointed to see online that the package was supposed to include Butter London nail polish which I remember saying in the survey I would definitely want, but wasn't included in my kit. See every kit is not the same for everyone and I read that a lot of users are disgruntled as well for getting things they specifically say they do not want like mascara every month or hair products when they have no hair (chemo) or the wrong hair type products.

I'll stick it out for a another month and hope it gets better, but it's not off to a good start.You can sign up here if you want to give it a try too, maybe your experience will be different from mine.
