Thanks for the list! I subscribe to Ipsy too and seeing everything laid out really puts things in perspective on how much of a good value it is. Not only have I purchased several things I received through MyGlam/Ipsy, but it also pushed me out of my comfort zone a little by including shades I would not normally try. I was a total nude lip and mostly natural eye shadow girl and now I wear bolder lip shades and add a little color sometimes to my eye looks.

Wonderful list. I think I use most of the products I get from ipsy compared to my other subscriptions (birchbox, samplesociety, and beauty army). It's probably cause I'm more inclined to try new makeup rather than hair or skin care products. Ipsy is also a plus cause I use the makeup bags as a good giveaway. I'm planning to save all the bags I get this year to give to coworkers for Christmas and fill them with chocolate.

wow it's so cool to see everything listed out like that!  Ipsy definitely has a great sample mix (for me), nice variety but more emphasis on makeup.  and only TWO perfume samples over a whole year, wonderful!!!

That was interesting to see a year's worth of samples listed. I love ipsy! My favorites of the year (I didn't receive Jan) are:

UD 24/7 liner

BareMinerals Moxie Lipgloss

Josie Maran cheek/lip stain

theBalm Meet Matte eyeshadow 

theBalm Body Builder mascara

Sexy hairspray

3Lab cleanser

Pacifica body butter

Dermstore coupon

Yes to cucumbers towelettes

eyeshadow brush

studiogear lipstick (glides on so smoothly)

Josie Maran argan oil

I've purchased more of several of the products they have sent me. Ipsy has been an excellent value for me.
