I’ve shared my love of cosmetics and beauty products in past blogs and my addiction shows no signs of waning. In fact I am pretty sure it’s stronger these days as I’ve reached Sephora Rouge VIP status and continue to find new favorites all the time on QVC and HSN. Today I have a new guilty pleasure that I have discovered: Ipsy Glam Bags.
This morning my Facebook news feed went wild with friends talking about their April Glam Bags and a flurry of new friends subscribing to the service. Not one to ever overlook a fun and viral cosmetic related series of posts I immediately asked my friend for her sign-up link and promptly began to fill out the questions about my own personal style, my eye color, hair color, preferred Ipsy stylist. Less than five minutes later I was signed up!
I remember receiving a service similar to this back in the 90s but I’ve noticed that these small boxes of surprise products are becoming more and more popular in the last few years. There are subscription boxes of all types, from the BarkBox for dogs, Purr Packs for cats, NatureBox snacks, you name it, you can subscribe to a monthly box full of amazing products. It’s win-win for everyone, from the manufacturers who can win new loyal customers of their brand to the consumers who love to try new products and receive merchandise straight to their home.
When you sign up for Ipsy you will likely be on the waiting list, but by sharing your new membership via Facebook and Twitter, liking their Facebook page and subscribing to several YouTube channels you can blast past the waiting list and jump right into your new membership. You can also earn points by sharing your membership with your friends and then redeem your points for bonus items.
My first Ipsy Glam Bag will not ship until May, and I cannot wait to see what it includes! If you would like to join Ipsy yourself, check out my link at http://www.ipsy.com/r/apc8 and see for yourself!
