is the cost of the products worth it?

I find that many months will have full sized products, which add up to at least $35-50 worth. I live in the US and it's $10/month including shipping. This also includes 5 products and a cute bag. Before receiving any samples, you'll take a quiz on your makeup style. With taking the quiz, you'll get makeup that you'll likely use and have the option of reviewing each product each month to see if you want to continue the same makeup in the future. I hope this helps Cayenne! :)

OK well it depends where you live because here in Canada it is $20ish dollars but if you live in the U.S.A then ya it's worth it. The products are really high quality and I havent had any bad products yet. But for me to live in Canada and pay almost $20 dollars, it's kind of pricey. So it really depends on you, where you live and your preferences. Hope this helped

Well, when you look at it, you get 5 products for $10 which comes out to $2 per product. That's worth it to try.

I honestly think so. This month I got 3 different masks , a beautiful eyeshadow trio a brush and a great travel size mascara . It's like a 10$ a month girlie surprise to yourself. I love it. I've subscribed for over a year now.

Yes, it's worth it for the $10 US price. You get a makeup bag every month plus 5 deluxe samples or full-size products with an average value of around ~$40 total, not counting the bag, and you don't even have to pay extra shipping.

For $2 a product, it's hard to go wrong even if you don't end up loving every item in your bag every month - you can always use the ones you don't like as gifts.

I would say yes it is worth the $10 here in the US, most of the time it is full size products I receive, yes at times they give me what I wont use but it is a company that wants to let you try out new products before I buy them. So yes some I wont touch others I have tried thinking I would never use this and now is part of my every day routine. I love Ipsy I stopped the subscription for a while but found that I was missing it and wished I kept it. on top of the make up the bags are great for weekend get away and not have to bring a full make up bag, and I use as gifts for others. totally worth the money and I am 100% satisfied !

10.00 is about as good as your going to get plus you get the free makeup bags. The only issue I had with ipsy was the way they would mk you like them to get off wait list. Or like theme in order to see a sleek peek of the items you will receive. To me that's not honest. It gives you the appearance of being " liked" or having so many people happy with them. When in fact I hv not seen anything tested anything. I don't like those games if I'm going to like you or give a good rating it's going to be because that's my experience. Don't write a positive comment and ask me to agree. I think it's affordable I gifted it to my cousin and she says it seems they don't pay attention to the quiz you take.

Yes it is fun for a while but it does get repetitive. I did it for about a year then I cancelled.

The cost for the products is not worth the wait and the emails back and forth of Ipsy telling you the item is on it's way over and over for a long period of time. Then finally when you receive your order you will get four items that would be sample size.

I would like to cancel my subscription to ipsy but i can not remember the email i use or my pass word I've tried to cancel my ispy act. 2 month ago and still getting makeup. Hi! I'm a bit disappointed. When I filled out my initial survey of what I liked and my preferences and I my Oct. bag had a BLACK eyeliner. No, No, No how well do the products work &how much is it to sign up? I was also wondering what they look like the bags you receive, more or les whats in the bags I was charged on July 21 and I never received my first glam bag. Why? It is very frustrating. I have recieved ipsy for almost 2 years ago. I love all of it, but my last bag I payed online, with the me card number, and last name. Can you please help what's going on, or did I do something wrong. Thank You!!! The ratings are low here, and some wrote it's very hard to cancel. Is that true another rip off mailing company. Many claim hard to reach people to speak with. Trying to decide if I should go with IPSY or with BirchBox how long is the waiting list? And why is IPSY better ? I am very particular about perfume I do not like any flowery smells so that can't be the reason .....how often do you give out nice brushes and such. I subscribed a couple of weeks ago and noticed that my March glam bag had not been shipped yet. When will that happen? I have not received my ipsy bag this month although it says it was delivered on March 11. Please look for information or send me another bag .Thank you, Barbara Nelson
