October 2018 Ipsy Glam Bag

Received The First Ipsy Glam Bag Plus

Thanks to a list on MSA I received the first Ipsy Glam Bag Plus! MSA is the real one for helping their frequent readers out! If you love your subscription boxes MSA comment section is where the action is at!

In fact, when I am bored I just head over to their comment section – overall great website for updates on various subscription boxes. Plus it’s really a great site for companies to gain a better understanding of how they can improve their services.

Advantages Of Using Ipsy Glam Bag Plus or BoxyCharm

Subscription services like Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and BoxyCharm give you the opportunity to try full-size products at a significantly low price you just can’t beat that when you’re starting out.

Now if you have friends and family members who work at these department stores who are willing to use their discounts just for you then that’s a different story. Overall the services are a great way to try products on a tight budget.

First Ipsy Glam Bag Plus Real Value Or Bait and Switch

Even if the box was bait and switch to some degree it doesn’t mean that there wasn’t any value. Surely Ipsy first Glam Bag Plus was valuable. However, depending on who you ask you may receive a different response simply because what’s valuable to one person may not be valuable to another.

Going through the comments on MSA some people liked the products they received in their boxes while others were disappointed. It’s only natural because you cannot please everyone. However, overall the box was good but I don’t think it was better than October 2018 BoxyCharm. What do you think?
