Ipsy June 2015 Unboxing

Ipsy Subscription Box June 2015 Unboxing

This is my first ipsy box.  Compared to some other subscription boxes, ipsy has some great products but I hate how they are all over your social media accounts.  When I first signed up, I was wait-listed.  Share ipsy with five friends and get this month’s box, except I shared and still had to wait a month.  Compared to my recent Birchbox subscription where my first box was sent within days, it put me off ipsy a little.
