Perks and Features

Even if you’re not a Glam Bag subscriber, you can go to the ipsy site and their social media accounts and participate as a community member–although subscribers get the full experience, as a sizable portion of discussions and content centers on Glam Bag offerings and tutorials based on them. Each month community members are encourages to share their tips, tricks, own makeup looks and videos through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

Apart from its focus on community, ipsy is at its heart a curation engine; and that shows not just in their subscription service, but also in their periodical giveaway promos, online store (ipsy Offers) and exclusive discount deals on the month’s Glam Bag contents (Brand Offers). ipsy works with a vast array of makeup, face, hair, skin, and body care products and brands–from the new and trendy, to the road-tested and well known. To name a few, they have items from: Clinique, CoverGirl, Urban Decay, Lancome, Mac, Maybelline, Nyx, Kerastase, Nails Inc, and Neutrogena.

Each month, you will be able to preview your Glam Bag’s theme together with the complete list of products that will be included in it, weeks before you get it. Once you get it, you can try out the products for yourself and even be guided by video tutorials created by the ipsy team. It’s also important to leave product reviews on the site if you’re Glam Bag subscriber, as these will help ipsy curate your future bags.
