You will get so much knowledge on makeup application. The subscription does roll into his monthly online classes which run about $19, but you can cancel at anytime. You cannot lose with this opportunity to see if you like for a mere 5 bucks and either keep your subscription or cancel. Sounds like a win win to me.
