If you're a blogger it's hard to miss the reviews about the different monthly subscription boxes that exist, bloggers seem to love them. Monthly subscription boxes are programs that you sign up for, pay the monthly fee, and receive a new set of products in the mail every month. It seems like there's a program out there for whatever interests you, from pet supplies, to beauty products, to hot sauce samples (no lie).
I never had the urge to sign up for one of these, simply because it seemed like a waste of money, until I found ipsy, a makeup subscription box. Each month they send you a cute makeup bag with five makeup samples to try. It's only $10/month (the cheapest program I've seen), and some of my bags have included full size products like the NYC blush above, and a POP lip crayon (not pictured).
I wanted to wait until I'd received three months of packages before giving you all my thoughts, but three months later I'm happy I signed up. If you're on the fence about joining one of these programs, I would highly recommend ipsy. It's been a fun surprise to open in the mail each month, and I've loved almost every product I've received. My favorite products from June, July, and August are pictured above.
Do any of you subscribe to ipsy? What do you think?
