Ipsy Glam Bag January 2014 - 19 Reasons

Ipsy has become one of the things I look forward to every month. And for those who haven't caught "Ipsy fever" as yet, here is what you will be getting yourself into - You get to sample amazing products tailored to you before you subscribe for membership. To become a member (which is free) you get to fill out a quiz so that they can personalize your items when they send off the glam bag.  It costs $10 USD and shipping is free to anywhere in the US.  I, however live in the Caribbean - Trinidad & Tobago to be exact and I have obtained a skybox in Miami as Ipsy does not ship international as yet. So I will pay the $10 plus my Shipping and Handling charges from my skybox company in Trinidad and it is still affordable because of all the items I get to try. The subscription promises 4-5 full size or deluxe samples each month. So to my Caribbean readers, yes you can subscribe to Ipsy but you must have a skybox in the US for them to ship the bag to.

Now onto the bag and the wonderful goodies I got this month:

My overall opinion is that the bag didn't "WOW" me like the last couple of months but it was ok.  I have a lot of Ipsy products I have not used as yet and I intend to make every effort to use all their items.  I love Ipsy and I intend to stay subbed for a long way into the future.  Thanks Ipsy!!!
