I have been subscribed to Ipsy’s Glam Bag for about 2 years. In this time I have received over 100 products for a cost of approximately $385 (note that since I’m in Canada I pay shipping & duties). I’ve always been excited to receive my bag, it’s like getting a present each month but over the course of the 2 years I found I was just accumulating products or giving them away. There were only a handful that I completely used up & a few that I genuinely like.
I cancelled my subscription shortly after receiving my January bag. I must say Ipsy really does try to convince you to stay…I kept being reminded that if I cancelled I might have to be on the wait list if I want to resubscribe.
It has been 2 months now since my last bag & I can honestly say that I don’t miss it. I’ve been watching YouTube videos & reading some blog posts to see what subscribers have received & nothing has really stood out for me.
I have thought about trying Birchbox but for now I’m going to work on using up the products I have. Over the 2 months I’ve saved over $30…which I’ve decided I’d rather spend on something on my Sephora Wish List.
How do you feel about Ipsy or any similar type of service? Are you still happy with it after a long period of time?
