This is the general review page for Ipsy. Each time I review one of their bags, it can affect its total score. I will award a score of 1 (awful) through 5 (awesomeness) on each of the following: content, value, uniqueness, shipping, customer service, and perks.

Service Type: Monthly subscription service

About: Ipsy sends you a mix of 4-5 sample- and full-sized beauty products monthly. They come in a different reusable makeup bag every month, which is pretty neat. 

Cost (in USD): $10 per month, with free shipping in the US. If you subscribe on an annual basis, it's $110 per year, so you basically get a bag for free. For Canada, shipping is $4.95 per month.

Shipping From: North Carolina

Shipping Schedule: They start shipping around the middle of the month.

Countries They Ship To: US and Canada

Bonuses: Right now they offer one bonus item in your next bag for every two people you refer who remain active members.

Customer Service: N/A - I haven't had to contact customer service.

Individual Box Reviews: May 2013

Total HM! Score:

Content: Items are very high quality. Value: Items in the box retail for about 5-6x that of the cost of the box! Uniqueness: 5 You get a different reusable makeup bag each month! As far as I know other subscriptions don't have a similar feature. Shipping: 5 Fast, I receive their products in a reasonable time frame. Customer Service: N/A Haven't had to contact customer service.  Perks: 4 Good, but not the best out there.

Total Score: 4.8
