ipsy July 2015 Subscription – “Summer Lovin'”

ipsy is $10/month and sends its members a beautiful Glam Bag with 4-6 deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Their bags always have an incredible value (well over the $10 cost) and I am always amazed at how they do it. I don’t always love everything in the bags, but I always always think it was worth my $10.

The Bag

ipsy ships around the 10th of the month via DHL Global Mail. I generally expect to receive my package a week after they ship. DHL Global Mail is pretty slow.

First Look

ipsy doesn’t include a product information card. Rather, they send a generic card and all of the detailed product information can be found in your account online.

The Information Card

The July 2015 ipsy theme was Summer Lovin’ and contained the following items:

~Eau Thermale Avène Cleanance Gel Soapless Cleanser ($2.48): I love cleansers! I think it’s my favorite item in the box this month. This is a perfect size for traveling and it’s for blemish prone skin, which is exactly what I have.

~Teeez Cosmetics Read My Lips Lipstick (Killing Me Softly) ($22): Meh. If I wore lipstick I wouldn’t mind this, but I just don’t, My SIL, however, loves lipstick and loves that I don’t love it because it means she gets it all!

~Crown Brush Professional Tweezers ($10.50): I wish I would have remembered I was getting tweezers in here because I literally just bought a new pair over the weekend. I guess now I have two fresh pairs. I will keep one in my travel bag and one in my bathroom.

~City Color Cosmetics HD Powder ($3.42): This is used to “set” your foundation for a flawless look. I don’t wear a ton of foundation so I will be passing this on to a friend.

~Jor’el Parker Classico ($21): I love Harvey Prince, but I have to say, I am on HP overload. It’s been in so many boxes lately! This one is kind of spicy (while still being sweet and a little floral) and I don’t love it as much as I enjoy some of the other Harvey Prince fragrances. I will wear it every once in a while though. It could be one of those scents you have to be in the mood to wear.

~The Bag: I think ipsy has really been stepping up their bags these last few months. They always used to be the same size, shape and material, but not anymore. I love everything about this bag – the colors, the pattern, the size, everything!

The Bag

All totaled I came up with a value of $59.40 for my July 2015 ipsy bag. The value was awesome (as usual), but it wasn’t a home run bag for me.  It just wasn’t my favorite.  I saw a lot  of other bags that would have been a better fit for me personally.  Maybe I shouldn’t look at the other products ipsy sends out though so I wouldn’t even know what I was missing!

Did you get this month’s ipsy bag? What variations did you get? And what’d you think? If you are interested in subscribing or interested in learning more, click here.

    I keep an extra pair of tweezers in my car. I always think things are fine in my bathroom and then I see my eyebrows in the sunlight in my rearview mirror. Yikes lol.

    I pluck while in the car line at school…best lighting EVER!!

    I’m thinking of taking a break on Ipsy for a bit. Does anyone know how hard it is to resubscribe?

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Teeez. I’m so disappointed that I stopped subscribing once it got fantastic! 🙁

    Mine was completely different from yours! Our only match was the perfume. Agree, it’s a so-so scent. I also got an eye pencil/shadow stick, nail polish in a pretty bright pink, a tinted lip balm, and something else I can’t remember right now. I’ve been loving the bags lately too!

    I was going to cancel after this month cause I already paid, then BEST BAG EVER…love the cleanser (received it first birchbox), everything I can use…lip balm, scent, shadow and Tarte bronzer which I was hoping for. It’s like they knew I was about to bounce!!

    You got a great bag! I love the look of that lipstick, I’ll try to swap for it on the MSA swap site. I got sea salt spray (but it leaked everywhere), the Tarte bronzer, lip balm, the Avene cleanser (it’s my fave!), and the same setting power that you got. I think I lucked out and got a great bag. Ipsy’s customer service is great too and they’re sending a new sea salt spray since mine leaked.

    I also received the same perfect, it’s just okay as well. I DID get the Aurora gel effect nail polish, in the bright orangey/pink/red …. lol ? Not a polish fan …. Love the Jelly Pong Pong, great stuff from them as always! The Be A Bombshell in French Kiss, but I was really hoping for the red, AOL a great lip Balm though! Hoping to swap for a different color! And the Pur-leiss face serum, can’t wait to try that! 🙂 awesome Bag!

      Sorry about the tips typos! Darn auto correct! 🙁 haha

  9. Erin Byrd

    Totally agree with you. My choices were not me at all and I hate seeing others bags with awesome products in them! But as you said it is only $10 and I always need a new cosmetic bag 🙂

    Jayne – I resubscribed after being off for a year. All my information was still in there! So easy!
