The pictures in the description are deceptive. It makes it look as if you will get many more items than came in the box. My first impression of the box before opening was that it was much smaller than I anticipated. The box measured 8.5"L x5"W x1.5"T and easily fit into my mailbox. It was shipped quickly - we received it within 2 weeks of ordering.
When we opened it, there was a cute card and origami bird that was a nice touch. Inside the box, there was:
1 cute, but flimsy, makeup bag (retail $0.32 - 16 pack of the exact bag is $5.69)
1 foldable brush as pictured in the video (retail $4-$6 depending on retailer)
1 eye shadow color (do not know retail value - etsy shop is closed)
2 cheap foam applicators (retail $0.15-0.25)
36 sticker gems for ears or nails (retail $1 for 36 - $7.99 for 288 pieces)
1 lip gloss (retail $11.99)

It was packaged thoughtfully and has non-toxic ingredients I can feel good letting my daughter play with. Do not buy this expecting the same value as the high-volume, big-name subscriptions you see tons of unboxing videos of online where you pay $50 and get...

We don't want any of our customers to feel duped. Our business model cannot mimic ipsy because non-toxic makeup products have high-quality ingredients like coconut oil, lanolin, jojoba oil, beeswax, etc. that are nourishing for our skin but cannot be cheaply produced.
