Their mission statement is … “To inspire women around the world to express their unique beauty.”
ipsy was introduced to me by two of my co-workers and friends. The founder of ipsy, Michelle Phan, is one of the biggest beauty gurus and vloggers on YouTube. I subscribed to her channel when I first started to get into makeup around the age of 16. Her videos played an instrumental part in my love for makeup. The goal for Michelle Phan was to create a personalized beauty service for people who did not know which products worked best for them. After researching ipsy and its purpose, I decided to give it try.
Every month I receive a sparkly, hot-pink, foil package with a “glam bag” inside of it filled with five goodies. All goodies are selected for the subscriber according to their personalized introduction quiz, which gets to know the likes of a person. For instance, through my quiz, I told ipsy that my complexion consists of having a medium/deep skin tone with dry, acne-prone skin and that I would like to receive hair, makeup, and skin care products. Since that quiz, ipsy sends out a personalized bag that is tailored just for me with products that fit my wants and needs.
With each bag, subscribers are able to review the products in them. If I did not want what I received, I am able to re-take the quiz, but I can also submit my thoughts and concerns about my future bag. ipsy is great with follow up, they are very fast-paced and it makes me feel secure that my money and time are highly valued. I have experienced great customer service with ipsy and have not had one problem with any of their services. It feels like I am apart of a tremendous beauty cohort.
It’s awesome because you can try out new and sometimes exclusive products. If you really like a product, you can purchase the full size, if it has not already been given to you. Sometimes you can even win a full-size product for free with ipsy but reviewing your bag for the month and sharing/inviting your friends via social media and email.
See what’s in my September Glam Bag…
If you are thinking about trying new products, may it be for your hair, nails, and/or skin – try ipsy. From my experience, it is completely worth it. Especially at $10 a month!
