IPSY was founded on a singular mission: to inspire individuals around the world to express their unique beauty.

Before IPSY, before beauty bloggers, and before the internet, beauty trends were created and communicated by a handful of people (like magazine editors and celebrities), and the world simply followed them because—well, our friends, moms, and aunts did, too.

Then YouTube became a thing and a makeup artist named Michelle Phan changed the game forever with her boundary-pushing beauty tutorials.

An entire generation of creators followed. Suddenly, beauty-lovers were bonding over their brow game, skincare routines, and whether or not a hyped-up product really worked. Beauty became a movement fueled by free conversation and an endless exchange of ideas and inspo.

IPSY was born out of this movement. That’s how the Glam Bag came to life—a set of personalized beauty products you can’t wait to try, test, and tell your friends about. With 3 million (and counting) members, IPSY is here to empower, energize, and re-shape what beauty is.

IPSY offers three subscription offers, at three reasonable price points. For just $12 per month, receive the Glam Bag, with five trial-size products. For $25 per month, receive the Glam Bag Plus, which comes with five full-size products. And the top tier, the Glam Bag Ultimate, comes with 12 beauty products in a deluxe makeup bag, for just $50 per month.

These prenatals are fermented to make them easy to digest and gentle on the body. The vitamins you take are supposed to make you feel better, not worse – and the last thing you need when you’re pregnant or nursing is to feel nausea.
