The Ipsy MyGlam bag is a monthly subscription service. You pay $10 a month to receive 4-5 deluxe beauty samples sent to your home. The samples are packed in a makeup bag. The bag you receive is different every single month, which adds a lot of appeal to the subscription service.

Usually, Ipsy provides full-sized products from lesser-known brands such as Mirabella and Chella, but they sometimes send deluxe samples from well-known brands such as Urban Decay, Benefit and theBalm.


The subscription is meant to introduce you to new and exciting makeup products. The best part? The bag is incredibly cheap. The value of the products included is always at least triple the cost of the subscription.

Get Extra Items

When you're a member of Ipsy, you have the opportunity to get extra items every month. When you refer people to the website, you can get points, which you can use to get extras. For example, in the month of May, they gave out Urban Decay Moondust eyeshadow to Ipsy members who referred two people.

The item you can get changes every month, so it is always a good idea to try an refer two friends to the service. If you are interested in gaining referrals, the value of your bag will be even higher since you can get some extra goodies.
